Most triple A mainstream games were overrated, but the one game that sticked out for me was Journey - it's a nice little.. experience, worth maybe 2 bucks but the way it was hyped and praised still makes me puke. I guess big part of that was that it was a PS3 exclusive - was it released on other platforms it woulda been treated like just another indie game.

Honorable mention is another small subgame: To The Moon

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Skyrim, I don't think anything else comes close enough to be worth mentioning.

BUNGIE did the right thing ditching Halo. For all the critical acclaim the franchise got. It didn't win GOTY. To top it off. It lost out to Journey. Yes. An indie game beat out one of the most popular FPS franchises of all time.

BUNGIE knew EXACTLY when to move on. DESTINY looks to be the "real deal". Bring it! :D

You do know Destiny has the same gameplay mechanics as all those halo games right? With a username like that I dont even know if I should take you seriously. Halo is by far my favorite series to date and even though im on ps now I still cherish the moments I spent on it, there is nothing like it on any ps. That it didnt win GOTY does not mean is overrated, the story is unique to a certain degree and even though is a fps it requires more strategy than most fps out there. I also dont like Halo Reach and cant say much about 4 because I left the series after Reach, but as far as CE, 2, 3, and ODST go some of the best experiences on Xbox to date. 

Edit: Games I've Actualy played and thought were over rated-

1.COD BlackOps

2. Killzone 3- campaing dialog is a little exaggerated 

3. COD MW3- not much improvement over 2 and online is the same as the previous iterations

4. Borderlands 2- I just could not get into it yet friends and internet boards praise how great its supposed to be

5. Halo Reach - sadly it lost the traits than made the series unique and became Halo duty 1.5

*Rolls on floor laughing*

DESTINY has been described as an "MMO" (such is BUNGIE's ambition and scope for the game).

Here you are jumping up and down comparing it to a FPS like Halo. I expected nothing less from a Xbox fan.

Look. Halo is finished. The future is DESTINY.

Read what design director Joe Staten said (full link below) about how they're looking to "kill off Halo".

"Way more characters than we had in the Halo games, I think with all our systems, most of them are brand new from the ground up, and that includes our AI and the way we script character behavior".

and...

"So if you're playing in a co-op way, we're not going to do that CRAPPY THING THAT HAPPENED IN THE OLD HALO GAMES where, if you're playing co-op, you don't show up...you're not the primary role."

*Laughs out loud*

Well said Joe. Well said. Time to kill off Halo and move on. :D

I bet a wry smile came across the team at BUNGIE when they saw how generic and standard Halo 4 was. Nice one fellas.

*Listens to Halo 4's main menu theme since that's the ONLY ORIGINALITY it has other than being a COD clone*

 

Ahem.....

Did you even read my entire post. When I talk about gameplay mechanics, I mean the way the character handles, if you listened to the latest podcast you would know that. Xbox fan? Really?  I left xbox like 3 years ago if not more. Right around when reach beta was over. Destiny is my most anticipated game of the year, but all I meant was that if you think Halo CE, 2, and 3 are overrated then your gonna be disappointed as far as the story goes if you read their interviews throughout its development its not much different if anything it is just envisioned in a way larger scale. ODST was an expansion to 3, it did have its own campain but the reviews were not that good so if you say its overrated I cant see how. Like i said reach and 4 i did not like so i dont even know why you bring 4 up.

Halo 1 and 2 were the best games of the trilogy. Halo 3 didn't quite cut the grade (so to speak). Halo was a franchise which was a "GOTY" winner before 3. When the third game came out it lost out to COD MW, Portal and BioShock (let alone Mario Galaxy but that's a different matter). There's a clear trend of a downward spiral. Halo on the original Xbox was revolutionary for FPS on consoles. Last gen it became more of a "standard" than a "forerunner". The sales it had generated prove that it "was" popular. No doubt about that. But, it's best days are FAR BEHIND IT.

Bye Halo. You were good. Just not good enough.

It is BUNGIE'S DESTINY to slay Master Chief. Once and for all. :' )

P.S. Glad you came over to PlayStation. Welcome. : )



Any pokemon or monster hunter game. It doesnt matter which ones.
