Bethesduh's Elder Scrolls series

a total con that dupes millions of fans into buying it after only supplying a skeletal framework* and dubious lore hacked from Tolkien and other oversaturated generic fantasy of which anyone with half a brain is sick to death.

then it inexplicably gets GotY. well, not inexplicably. you see, Bethesduh are marketing gurus first, procedural generators second, and game devs last.

they blitzkrieg online/offline publications with their unimaginative ad campaigns and pay corrupt game "journalists" under the table to rate their dross above all else.

have you met an intelligent Skyrim gamer? even back in the days of Morrowind, critical intelligence was almost a fable in the community.

UTTER UNADULTERATED DROSS.

* = get the fans to put in the hard work actually making a passable game (mods!) out of your soulless slug-like engine of nothingness. the demented fanbase actually buy into it (duped by the con) and any criticism of the game's foundations is obnoxiously and shallowly answered with "duh, mods" (features can be changed by mods, but not filthy console peasant foundations).

Dross... Ningishzida found his new fancy sounding word. You're so edgy, Ning, really you are. -.-

Skyrim, or any TES game. Super boring combat and a world filled with boring content (YAY FOR DUNGEONS!.....no).

I seriously hate the word overrated, since it implies some that the mass appeal of a game is due to the critical and objective shortcomings of its fans, and fails to account for different tastes. Accept that you are the outlier, and move on.
