No game series is more overrated then MGS
ArmPillow posted...i disagree.
Again, Call of Duty isn't overrated. No one reasonable who plays it, actually plays with a mindset that its the BEST GAME IN THE WORLD! (at least after COD:MW1) It's dum/plain fun, simple.
Also I agree with Versus being overrated. It's not overrated because its bad game, which would be near impossible to discern since it isn't even out yet, its overrated because with all the buzz around it, proclaiming it to be the saviour of SE. When there's a good chance, it'll turn out disappointing like the rest of the trash SE's been releasing lately.

Devil May Cry is overrated?
Half Life most DEFINITELY classifies as over rated. Seriously, I don't know why people like the game so much, the coolest part about it is it's name. That's it. And the name doesn't have anything to do with the game.

The problem with this logic is that every game would be considered "overrated" since there would inevitably be a group of people that didn't think said game deserves the score it gets.
way more overrated:
Out of this list, Halo, Elder, Starcraft, WoW, Smash bros are the overrated games.
Crash and Tony Hawk were overrated in the PS1 days, these games are becoming unheard of. Golf is underrated in the general sport, even less for a video game and Assassin's Creed is losing its fan base.
Call of Duty series the definition of overrated, nothing original or exciting to show off, same old junk, year in year out, its multiplayer can be addicting and thats all it gets.
Shenmue and Vanquish is what you call underrated. MGS series? is just right, a new release every 3 to 4 years, engaging story, decent gameplay & something new every release.

Go back to your CoD and GoW, TC. Meanwhile, we'll play something with substance.

The first one was good for it's time. Well the gameplay sucked but the ridiculous story and moronic characters fit in with everything else from the PS1 era. Hell the voice acting was godly compared to things like Syphon Filter and Resident Evil.
This is how I see it. I never played any of the MGS games before, but I always heard good things. Then a couple of years ago I saw the first 3 at Wal-Mart for $20 and I figured I'd give the series a chance.
Gameplay wise they're boring. You walk around and avoid inept nearsighted guards. Then you fight the occasional boss with a stupid easy weakness, like shooting him in the ass or throwing grenades into an open tank hatch. I can forgive bland gameplay if the story makes up for it, but it doesn't, and that's what bothers me the most. The series is hailed as these grand epics, but they're full of goofy cartoonish stuff. It tries to be serious, but at the same it it's making lame 4th wall jokes and having Snake hide under a cardboard box. Be serious or be comedic, but don't do both at the same time. That's like putting nacho cheese on ice cream.
There are few problems in life that can't be solved by a hug-happy amnesiac pillbug.
I guess I stand in the middle. I think MGS is a little overrated, but still pretty good.

So much truth
