Whats the most overrated game this generation in your opinion?

For me its easily The Last of Us. Was a terrible game, but people hyped it up to be the greatest game of all time. On rails scenes where all you can do is walk(slowly) forward and listen to people talk. Plot went nowhere for 70% of the game, most predictable ending ever. Gameplay was too segmented, painfully so.

Cutscene.
Combat Room.
Gather materials in an empty area.
Forced to walk at snails pace while npcs talk.
Cutscene.
Repeat.

I felt more for the princess girl i had to guide through ICO ten years ago than i did for ellie or joel's cliche plot and characters. It wasnt a work of art, and it definitely wasnt a very good game. Really cant understand fanboys hype that game up so much. The first 10 minutes were great, then it fell flat.


Anyway, as you can tell i think TLOU is extremely overrated. Any games you guys feel arent as good as they were hyped up to be?

None.

I don't get to tell others they're wrong for liking games that I dislike.

Everything is overrated and underrated. It's all just words to pad the egos of the insecure.

Wow, you took the words right out of my mouth. Exactly why I hate The Last of Us, almost word for word.

I give The Last of Us a 2/10 ( F- ), by the way.

It's not overrated, just pure crap.

But some people enjoy this.

Uncharted 2. I really don't get the appeal of those games, they just seem so generic.

The game of trying to piss people off with topics like, "What's the most overrated game?"

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
