What do you think is the most over rated game of all time? IMO, GTA:SA is one of them.(Don't really know whats the most over rated.) I died twice because these trees materialized out of nowhere and I crashed my plane into them. Graphics deserved a 6! And a game with a graphics of 6 can't get a 9.6! Maybe 9.2 though :lol: . But don't get me wrong I love the game. Halo is another nominee. Great game but repetitive level design. Maybe I feel that way because when my pc messed up, I had to play that horrid Library level again on legendary!

Soul Calibur 2. If you can remember the hype. I said two weeks after the game came out, no one would be talking about it. Everyone laughed at me. I was right.

Metal Gear Solid. I say this from playing Twin Snakes on Gamecube, so maybe that game just didn't capture whatever makes MGS good, but I just really don't like the game very much.

Halo 2 as far as hype

but since I monstly play RPGs for most over rated I'm going with Xenogears with Valkyrie Profile running a very close second.


Also GTA SA wasn't over rated except by idiots who seemed to thing it would be somehow different from the 2 previous games and gamming magazines that rate everything popular to high.

don't say anything bad about the game until you cock punch a guard with your stealth camo on

and if we are looking at this generation I would say PoP:SOT and Freedom Fighters. Both games get really boring and really repetitive, really fast. I got about 80 percent through PoP and more than halfway through FF before putting them down

And Although I have not played it, Halo 2 is def. on my list. That game was so overhyped no way it could match the hype. When every thread on the front page of the Xbox board is a Halo 2 topic, and you get flamed for trying to clean up the board because there are other games coming out besides Halo, you kind of hate the game

The orginal was better on the psone. The gamecube version is to easy with the added first person aiming.

Both Halos. I also agree with Soul Cali 2. Most media unanimously declared it the greatest fighting, or at least 3d fighting game of all time. IMO, Virtua Fighter 4 is light years ahead of it in terms of depth. So much better of a fighting game all around. And I just got bored with SC2 after a while. There's been tons of over-rated games throughout the ages, but I'd have to say Halo takes the cake, with Halo 1 a close second.

Easily H2, best game ever my ass I felt like beating anyone that said that with a baseball bat (which was a lot of people I would have been busy for a looong time) followed by GTA (VC and SA) and SCII (not close to best fighting game). Then we cant forget Fable too.....wow so many overrated games

For just shear overated, Halo 2 (and Halo 1 for that matter). It's just a standard FPS and very repetitive, yet got near perfect reviews. I would say Chronicles of Riddick had a better single person adventure, much more variety. I am not saying Halo 1 or 2 are bad games, they are good, but not great games.

FFVII which was more of a movie than a game.

Tomb Raider with it's awkward clunky controls

We must have one of these topics every month, so let this one go down in flames like the rest.

Halo/Halo2, GTA3,4&5. And as much as I enjoy the game, I would have to agree with Soul Calibur II as well. Oh, and anything FFVII or beyond (although I haven't played FFCC, but it wasn't very highly rated either).

i might get flamed for this... but i thought metroid: prime was way overrated. i got it and it was cool for about 3 days, then it just got crappy, i hated the auto lock function it took away from the first person...

also mario kart: dd only because it was way too easy, i dont remember ever really losing a race... i was extremely disappointed with it

Doom 3 was so disappointing to me, but at the same time I don't think all that many people liked it anyway, so maybe it doesn't count.

Final Fantasy 7 is my favorite FF, but everything after that sucks.

Resident Evil (with the exception of the incredible looking fourth installment) has never been appealing to me, either.

I was gonna say Halo, but then I thought about it more, and its context, and I think I get why Halo is so big, even though I'm not really into it. As a console title, I can see why it's a phenomenon.

Then I was gonna say GTA: SA, but again I think objectively it's a pretty amazing game with a lot going on. It just doesn't have quite the same impact for me because I played the previous two.

I think I'm gonna have to nominate FFVII. I just could not get past the primitive character art and animation, and some of the characterizations. The combat also left me wanting too. I like Wild Arms a lot more. It was more conventional and didn't have FFVII's ambition, but it clicked.

Personally, I would have to say:

Halo
Halo 2
And any and all Final Fantasies.

I believe all of these games were overrated...

Agreed. I commonly refer to it as "Crapple."
