Forums - Gaming Discussion - What's the most overrated game ever in your opinion?

Dark Souls by far for me...

Around the Network

Last of us. Gamepkay and story are bad. But people praise it.

Halo 1.

It's the game that kept me from the whole franchise. I don't understand the praise it got.

It's the only game which alien corridor design (pink/grey) caused me a headache.
Boring and inspired interior level design by copy/paste the rooms and corridors multiple times just to make the game longer was a middle finger in world design.

I just couldn't see right through these flaws. Especially the hype that was created around this game.

It all depends about one thing in my opinion, whether you care more about gameplay, or about the story. And that's why there's so many polarizing opinions on game like Last of Us or Breath of the Wild.
TLOU is story driven with poor gameplay (and people who care about gameplay tend to think it's overrated), BOTW is gameplay driven with a poor story (and people who care about the story tend to think it's overrated).

Personally, i've always played games strictly for the story, i don't care about gameplay most of the time (gasp) and i probably never will.

Games that i consider overrated:
- Skyrim
- Breath of the Wild (bought the Switch for it, played the game a second time to hopefully like it, but i still hate it)
- Fallout series

(On the multiplayer side): Every battle royale game.

I thought the 30min I played of Ocarina of Time were pretty boring, but as I never played more than that (and I was tired as hell when playing it) it would be foolish to judge the whole game by that.

Oblivion however bored me out of my mind for the last 10-15h I played it. The first ~5h I enjoyed it alot, but soon after that and especially after finishing the bad story it just fell soo flat for me and that after being hyped for it for months - very disappointing.

Uncharted 2 in my opinion is a lot less enjoyable than U1. The graphics are phenomenal, but the bullet sponge enemies, the enemies spawning (jumping into the small area) from all sides and the shitty end boss frustrated me a lot - still a good game imo, but I prefered U1, even with it's easy QTE boss.

MW2's MP is trash. The average consensus seems to be that it's great but I don't think it's good, or decent or somewhat okay, it's just nothing but a flaming pile of shit in my opinion.
