My No #1 Most Overrated game i've ever played is Final fantasy 7 and Crisis core .
FF7 was and still is being hailed as one of the best Ps1 games whereas i find it as the worst goddamn RPG i've ever played in my life mainly because its aged so poorly.
it just had awful load times,ugly character designs(I love Japanese cartoons but this shitz is like anime for emo people) gameplay was just your old school turn based strategy in fugly 3d and the story.. oh yes the story is the most epic letdown considering how its rabid fanbase told me that it has a great epic story and how you'll cry manly tears when aeries dies... or how sephiroth is the greatest video game villain ever.
The story was like it was written by bunch of 12 yr old avril lavigne fans on a sleepover.
I got over the FF7 hype debacle but Crisis core really got under my skin because it was being hailed as one of the best PSP games on the market.. and i tried it and guess what?? It was an "okay" game way better than the FF7 but the characters are still as about as engaging&deep as a paperclip and are emo as fuc* and gameplay is fairy average..
As an RPG game it gets its ass whooped by awesome games like monster hunter,Ys seven and Disgaea.
No #2 :-
After deep pondering i've come to the conclusion that !
Its one of the most shallow,unoriginal platforming game i've ever played... all do you is run to the right,jump and collect unnecessary rings .. and there are people who call mario 2d games "outdated and simple" ? play sonic! you'll immediately appreciate good game designing hell even angry birds has more "variety" than any 2d sonic game.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY brilliant games like earthworm Jim gets cancelled after just one awful 3d game but this pile of putrid garbage gets to live so long,Sonic fans you make me lose faith in humanity! you people bitch&moan about how sonic 3d games are mediocre platformers while not realizing that its only because it is based on a 2d sub-par mediocre platforming game!
BTW Super Castlevania 4 sucks too its easy as fu*k and has the worst type of music&artwork and i can't believe AVGN thinks that this is the "best" castlevania game..
Final Fight&Golden axe..whenever you type "Beat'em'up" on google you are 100% guaranteed to get these 2 on the top these games define that genre despite being so abysmally mediocre.. they have no extended combo moveset,have stiff animation,controls and overall slower pacing with forgettable music.
,,.. these are the games that should be used to represent this kickass genre NOT something mediocre like golden axe or final fight and i hate the word "Final fight clone" its just like saying "God of war clone" while it actually makes sense why anyone would use God of war as a yardstick but final fight.... really?? that's like saying dynasty warriors is better than devil may cry.
And in the current gen i've had the misfortune of witnessing plethora of titles like these games had INSANE amount of hype and did they live up to it?? NOPE.. they're just average games which was just piggybacking on its predecessor's success.
.. its character designs look ugly,has stiff controls and has jerky movesets and some broken "supers" bullshit and the final boss.. boy he sure is so easy to beat... (NOTTTT)
I am perplexed to see how a SNES era game can be given a HD coating and people will hype it like its something new and revolutionary.
oh yeah do i even have to mention? we knew what we were getting it was going to be like every other GTA... THERE WAS NOTHING to be this hyped about it was not something revamped it just builds upon GTA 4.and adds more stuff to it..
Elder scrolls is a long running series.. and skyrim is the 7th or 8th entry in the elder scroll series.. WHAT IS SO GODDAMN NEW ABOUT THIS GAME? where was the hype for all the other games which came before it? was i living under a rock or something? i never even heard about this series!
And very recently the amount of hype got were INFUKKINGSANE! and its popularity fizzed out so fast i can't believe it! either i'm going mad or i really can't find people raving about bioshock infinite and last of us's brilliant story anymore what brought about this change i wonder...(probably their ADHD but i digress).
