I'll likely get chewed out for this, but I feel that Mario is overrated. I get it, Godfather of platformers, but any other Mario than the first few (Super Mario World, etc), 64, Kart, Sunshine (well, I liked it), and the Galaxy's have no interest to me. The MILLIONS of iterations from GB, GBA, DS, DSi, 3DS, what-the-hell-ever, I have no interest in.

Fail in that, I'd say Call of Duty post original Modern Warfare. I loved 2 and really, really liked the original Modern Warfare. Post MW = Modern-shooter paste. And what's worse? Everyone else started to jump on the Modern Combat fad and just made it insulting.

The above post is of MY opinion. Do not slash my tires.

For me personally, any RTS game because I dislike the genre.

There is no universally correct answer though.

People need to learn the difference between what overrated means and what their own personal dislike is.

I see a lot of people hating on Ni No Kuni because a) its a jrpg or b) its too hard for them or c) they didn't get their WE preorder (hahah i lol at them since I got mine).

I own and like a lot of games that are overrated. I think FF7 is highly overrated but I still love it. Same with OoT. Basically almost any FF game is overrated because of the hype that comes with being Final Fantasy...well maybe not anymore thanks to what 13 has done to the franchise.

Gonna go ahead and say that Uncharted, Halo and Half Life are pretty much the most overrated games I've come across. Enjoyed them but dont feel they live up to their hype.

No large game ever lives up to fan's hype.

I haven't played every game of all time to know.


Watch out everybody! Philosopher coming through.


It's not about being a philosopher. If you say "of all time" you imply everything ever made. It encapsulates everything.

I disagree a bit. Mass Effect 2 was severely hyped and even with it..it blew me away. It is probably the only game this gen I have played through 5+ times. Also Skyrim. Ok crack all your jokes about glitches and no dlc...it still captured me. I think from Nov till March after it came out I hyped it up to people around me thats how much I loved it.

Grand Theft Auto IV(Bore)

As a fan of the series, I felt it failed on many fronts, and definitely did not deserve straight 10's as it did.

I agree...it was overhyped but also I felt it was an improvement over San Andreas. Vice City was awesome and then SA was a let down. I didn't mind IV but I think I've grown past that genre now
