Divinity: Original Sin markedly worse than FF7.

FF7 was always trash. Poorly translated, very ugly trash.

"Audience" :O


At the very least he's right about the poorly translated part, and the same can be said for the rest of the series as well.

FF7 was a big step forward at the time. I've only wanted to replay it once though. Still, that beats 5, 8, and 9 which I wish I'd never played at all.

In all honesty, that 5 points extra would've ONLY been for the graphics, which was revolutionary at the time. That, and probably the gritty atmosphere together with a story that does NOT take place in a Medieval time, which IIRC was rare.

FF7 is still clinging to its old fame like a washed-up, ugly starlet.

Also, LOL Metacritic.

Lol @ comparing games using Metacritic. Hilarious.

Please, compare Nintendogs with Bioshock Infinite now!


I agree with your argument except for the Bioshock Infinite part. That game may be more overrated than FF7 was.


I tried to choose a newer game that MOST people enjoy and that received high praise, but of course, I couldn't use TLOU because a game with a great story like that is also considered "overrated" by many. It's ridiculous how people might see a game as alright, but once a lot of other people begin to like it much more than that person, that one person just decides to call a game trash.

Not saying you did, and some of this might not even apply here to you, but I just really dislike how over-the-top and exaggerated some people get when talking about widely well-received games and being "overrated".

Maybe you should actually listen to people instead of getting really angry that they don't agree with you.

This Dr. Keith kid has been really bitter lately. I've been noticing him acting up a lot.

I hope he's alright.

Agreed someone needs to buy that crap hole and turn it into a porn site so it will be worth going to so many good games get horrible ratings cause a few people hate it.

Getting angry?

It just annoys me that it seems like there are a lot of people who call a lot of good games "overrated" for no real reason, other than the fact that tons of people like the games. I guess it's just to try and stand out.
