ITT: People hate on popular games.

Although to be honest, I think to a certain degree almost everything that is massively popular is overrated to a degree - these things hit a critical mass and then the bandwagon effect kicks in. Not just games, but everything - movies, literature, food, you name it. So naming names doesn't really do much for me.

I'd have to say Bioshock, the first one. And any old games people talk about loving that they haven't played in over a decade.

  1. GTA IV (Boring as a banana)
  2. Call Of Duty series (Same thing over and over and over again.)
  3. Saints Row 2 (No way in hell it is better than SRTT or SRIV)

I'm gonna play Bioshock Infinite in 3 days...hope it worth the hype also.

GTA IV isnt as fun as its predecessors but on its own i think GTA IV was an amazing game.

So is Pokemon,Halo,Battlefield,God of War,Gears of War,and pretty much everything else with a sequel.

You cant really judge it on SRIV yet cause its not out but SRTT is better. (Although Co-oP was funner on SR2)

I tried playing Bioshock infinite, IMO Terrible gameplay,amazing story. I wouldn't recommend buying it as once you beat it you will never play it again.

Almost all COD games are overrated for obvious reasons.

Pokemon DS games are extremely overrated.

Minecraft...

Some GTA games. Graphics are horrid as hell. Yes, the graphics, I don't need excellent graphics but at least bearable, I'm sorry.

I was expecting something like GTA: San Andreas, that's why I'm disappointed with the game.

I never liked Gears Of War, Halo, Pokemon or Battlefield that much. (Just God Of War, because..storyline :P.) I try to buy games that have a really good storyline or gameplay, since games here are around R$150 and, IMO, CoD storyline sucks, and the gameplay isn't that good, but I have to admit that COD: Black Ops II Zombie Mode is better than I thought.

I heard a lot of things about Bioshock Infinite, but, I hope you're right. Epic story>>Epic gameplay. ^^

EDIT: I am the lord of tyops.

Yeah, agreed. Past Halo games were actually good such as Halo Reach. Recent ones... Yeah.

To me the game actually looks pretty good. Though what I dislike about it is that Batman pulls out random PIS items from his utility belt and KOs like 10 of his villains with ease along with their goons.

God of War and Gears of war have been the same repetitive unimpressive games for a while now. The both games in both series deserve a lot of credit for pretty much reworking genres though

It's kinda of shallow reason to call GTA overrated. Don't get me wrong, I thought GTA IV was boring piece of s***, but graphics are least of the problems.

COD. I hate all those games. It's so generic, mindless, and uncomplicated in every way. It's a shame it robs so many people of $60-$120 every single year and people don't realize it.

  • Injustice: Gods Among Us - The game just sucks.
  • Call of Duty 2 - I've heard amazing things about the CoD franchise, so I played this game. It wasn't bad, but it's not worth the hype.
  • Ultimate Spider-Man - I really liked it, but it doesn't deserve to be called one of the greatest superhero games of all time.
  • Batman: Dark Tomorrow - I know the game is hated by all. But they don't even begin to describe how awful it truly is.
  • All Mortal Kombat games - They're okay, but I don't see what's so special about them.

And wow. Out of five games I've listed, 3 of them were comic related. I really need to play more games.

That doesn't mean I dislike those games, I like them, it's just that they're massively over-rated.
