Shhh only Zelda games are overrated.

This some kind of pretend narrative I haven't heard about?  Tons of gamers have been saying for years that GTA 4 is overrated, along with many other games.

GTA IV also had a much more interesting main character than any GTA before that. Vice City had that cool '80s Miami Vice scenario, but the main character was bland.

And CJ in San Andreas was such a cliché character. But the most boring one always will be Claude of GTA 2 + 3.

Is it even supposed to be the same Claude in both games?



I liked it! Played through that pecker twice. Once at launch, and again when it got a trophy patch.

Because Rockstar. The same reason Overwatch is overrated is because Blizzard.

Some companies just get a pass on being uninteresting.



Watch me stream games and hunt trophies on my Twitch channel!

Imo every GTA suffers from being a jack of all trades master of none. And the mechanics always improve with subsequent playthrough making the older games terribly dated, while the new ones seems like amazing games, at least while the hype lasts... GTAIV also had the problem of having a campaign that didn’t please a lot of people



I make game analyses on youtube:

Did it deserve a 98? hell no. But it also doesn't deserve the amount of negativity directed towards it either imo.

It's overrated by critics, and underrated by users.



So many games in the 7th gen were overrated, this is around the time when I really stopped caring about reviews, what with all the inflated scores flying around freely everywhere.



Cause it was a new GTA. People sucked up to it for that reason, and that reason alone. However, to doubt some reviews weren’t bought would be naive. The game isn’t bad. It’s okay. I prefer it over the original GTA’s which were ugly top-down messes. It’s much inferior to San Andreas in every way though

First other person I’ve found that says Overwatch is overrated. Thank you.
