The most overrated game of all time.

Halo series.

I got the first two games free as gifts. They are nothing special so I traded them the next day and got some good credits from them. That was the only good thing I can say about Halo.

I still don't understand why people are so crazy about it. It's just a space themed FPS. But people buy the game in quantity, go to Halo convention and I think there is novel or graphic novel about Halo.

Really? For a space shooter with a protagonist wearing a head gear that looks like a motorcycle helmet. I cannot comprehend. I am not a Nintendo fan but Samus from Metroid wears a space suit that looks ten times better. And that is based on a 30 year old design.

OoT is the most overrated game of all time.

- Why? NO game can live up to OoT's hype and ratings. I love the game, but damn was I disappointed when I went in expecting the greatest game of all time (it's one of the greatest though).

U and I could be friends.
Of course I will still argue with you on this.
OOT deserves its praise.

What year did you play it


2005, the same year I started playing the Zelda series. I'm aware it would have been groundbreaking in its year of release, though.




Exactly as I figured....


That wasn't my point, though. Even today, it's considered a flawless masterpiece that no game will ever dethrone, which certainly isn't the case.


Which can be pointed towards the same type of argument people put up when they say "Led Zep or The Who is the greatest band of all time" or "Clapton or BB King is the greatest guitarist of all time"

People will hold dear to what first impressed them. The groundbreakers or trendsetters if you will.....the stuff that spawns or spawned many off shoots that were inspired by them.
They hold those in higher regard and respect because they were there first that set the trend historically; that did something then that wasn't done before exactly....

The problem for me is that none of the Zelda games after OOT have that same sense of adventure.

In OOT each temple had it's own stand out point that made you like it and the time traveling worked well without being convoluted, but the newer Zelda games loose that
charm of story and adventure like the new FF games. Granted I love Wind Waker (my siblings prefer TWLP as their 2nd place choice) but even with all the fun I had sailing the story wasn't large enough.

With each new gaming gen stories should be expanded, but the stories coming out now could have been put onto past gen. It's like everything is just graphics.

ya know, two days ago I might've had a list, but after a moment on tuesday afternoon i've been left with only one game

Super Goddamn hexagon

this game is if you took Fly the Copter
(http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/games/copter for those that are uninitiated)
and instead of a helicopter dodging walls you had a triangle dodging walls

and yet its getting praised as one of the best indie games ever, and sitting high on game of the year lists (I remember Joystiq saying it was the 5th best game of 2012, actually joystiq was the reason I dropped the dollar on it)

I wish I could have my dollar back.

It doesn't mean hating games. It has more to do with people's reaction of said game.
People are the ones who rate the games.

Half-Life 2

I get that it's a good game with how much praise it receives but I find it to be mediocre in every possible way.
