Hey guys! I just wanted to hear your opinions on some of the game that are overrrated to you. My picks:

Uncharted 2: Because I like to hate on that popular game that had over 108 goty awards, and a 96% in metacritic.

Half life 2: Because I like to hate on that popular game which has over 60 goty awards, and is considered the best shooter of all time.

Resident evil 4: Becaue I like to hate on that popular game which revived a stale and dated franchise.

Mass effect 2: Because I like to hate on that popular game which received over 100 goty award, due to that fact that it isn't boring and complex, hence it doesn't make me feel superior and smart.

Bioshock: Because I like to hate on that popular game which originally was cool and original, but as people kept saying it was great and it received over 60 goty awards, I wanted to be the black sheep.

Final Fanasy 7: Because I like to hate on that popular game which introduced millions of non-rpg gamers to well... rpg's.

Halo: Because I like to hate on that popular game that popularized the first person shooter genre, and has added the name "My buddies like to drink with me on the couch, while we play halo."

What are your picks?

You know, when I go into a thread about the "Most overrated game of all time", I wish that the OP would actually talk about a single game and attempt to make their case, on that single game. I didn't know one game meant five, but that's just me.

Thanks. It's just an opinion of course, these games need to be exposed for being overated and thus they suck.

Lol. way to go. If it weren't for Halo (controls) and Halo 2 (online) completely paving the way for console shooters, Cod would have remained a PC only game and that crap MW3 sig you have wouldnt be shown. Anyways, mine has got to be EVERY Cod after 4. Rehash-9.5 Rehash-9.0 Rehash- 8.5

Overrated by whos standards, mine? Whats the most highly acclaimed game that I don't like or which highly acclaimed game do I dislike the most?

Well personally the highest rated game that I don't rank among my favorites is Super Mario Galaxy. My least like highly rated game has to be Street Fighter 4.

Morrowind: The game is broken and just no fun to play. I don't understand the hype around it and why everyone tries to use it when bashing Oblivion (which is an awful game unmodded too) or how it is the best thing since sliced bread. I'll take Gothic 1 or 2 any day of the week over Morrowind.

Halo! Nothing else is more over hyped. I still remember seeing halo 3 plastered on everythin even soda bottles. Its a good game don't me wrong and will miss halo 4 when it comes out due to selling off the 360 for a ps3 (due to online pay to play). Its just not what people make it out to be.

overrated and underrated are terms that get thrown around by a lot of people (not saying you) that don't know what they really mean.

A game has to go through phases before its overrated. It starts off as fantastic and the best thing ever. People hear this and buy it. then they too already have opinions formed of what it should be. They either agree and spread the word further or totally disagree and complain like your post. They get overrated because they are in essence very good games. People who think they are overrated just don't like them either for personal reasons or its just not their taste

Honestly, Half Life 2 gets more praise an attention than it truly deserves. It's a good game, but FAR from the greatest game of all time. It's a generic shooter that hasn't aged well, unlike some of the other great games from its time.

I have to agree, its gameplay is nothing too great, the story is pretty meh, and the characters are boring as all hell. I mean why praise a game for storytelling when it doesn't have a good story to tell :?

Orange Box: WAIIT DONT SEND NINJAS YET!!! Let me Explain.

Half-Life 2 Ep1 and ep2.

Really it is a good game, but I dont understand the hype surroundng it. The 'amazing storytelling' isnt that amzing, a silent protaginist with everything from a first person view? The story itself isnt that amazing, the only compelling thig being G-Man whom we know nothing about. The gameplay is good though, and can be legitimly fun, however it was never a complete blast to play or the great experiance that people say make it amazing. It was just ther and would give HL 2 ep 1 and ep 2 a combination of an 8 at best and frankly find the wait/hype for 3 unnessayr for a franchise that is just good.

Poratl a fun quirky puzzle game that is worht a play through or two, glados is humerous, and the puzzle genuianly enetertaining to do, only an occasional stumper that causes frustration and longer thought, this really is the best part of Orange Box, but I never got the E-hard on from it or its ending and thouht it was a fun one off that really didnt need a full length sequel.

Team Fortress 2: A really fun MP only game. Not really my personal peference of MP, still occasional fun when the mood strikes.

Rely though it is a good deal, but since those games are nothing special to me i waited for price drops before i bought it.

The only ones the come to mind for me are all the recent COD games (I'm not much of an online gamer so I guess I just don't get all the hype) and GTA 4 (I got bored of it after a few days... that should happen in a GTA game!).

Most people here don't really like the game, but in terms of critical appeal, GTAIV.

Also, GRAW 360 bored me to tears.

This was a great post, dude. More such games would include MGS4 (because I like to hate on the game that turned a flagging system's fortunes around, got GotY awards everywhere, and got so many perfect scores, it ain't even funny) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (because I like to hate on what is universally considered the greatest game of all time) Halo: Combat Evolved (because I like to hate on what is considered one of the most well made games of all time, and one that is credited with popularizing the FPS genre for the masses)

Ive got a couple. Infamous and MGS4. The first Infamous looked like a ps2 game. The actual game was ok, but it was just ugly as hell, I couldn't get past it. MGS4 was a good game as well but not a 10. No way.

Half-life 1 is WAY better.
