overrated just means other people like the game but for whatever reason you don't.

Overrated games are:

Red Dead Redemption

The guy with the GoW

The fixed camera angle spares it from the problems many other hack and slash games have. Enemies spamming you off screen or action happening behind a semi visible wall that usually leads to frustrating deaths. GoW's camera works well, and is part of the reason why it leads it's genre.

The sameyness happens with ever game and it's ridiculous to dislike an entire franchise because each game plays the same. That's the point of a franchise. What happens when you change the formula too much? You end up with RE.

The rest seems like he had external issues that cause him to not enjoy GoW. He tries to make it out like Kratos is just unlikeable, but everyone hated the GoDs after the first game. How could you not want them dead? But instead, we hate Kratos for the sake of hating Kratos...or the dreaded, "why's everyone going crazy over this game".

Totally agree. While the atmosphere and exploration of AC2 is quite good, the combat and quest design was snooze inducing... and don't get me started on the convoluted story.
spunnups  +   1280d ago
my thoughts exactly
DialgaMarine  +   1281d ago
lol Love the comment in the article saying UC2 had dull story, dull characters, and straightfoward TPS cover based gameplay. Sounds more like Gears of War to me. That game has become the definition of dull this gen.

Uncharted series is overrated and I only own a PS3. its basically indiana jones rehash and the game is so linear its pretty much a straight line.
JDcg  +   1281d ago
You can take any game and say it is basically a copy of some prior idea. Uncharted has some of the best story progression of all time. It actually keeps people on the edge of their seat.

terrible list.

were is gta4?!?!?!??!?!
hell even la noir. game was borefest. the novelty wears off pretty quickly.
FinaLXiii  +   1281d ago
la noire is actually underrated u need a brain to play that game.
spektical  +   1281d ago
idk, it was really easy for me with hints turned off.

felt more like an add on for a gta game than a game on its own.

have you played crimson room? that game is much more difficult than any of the "investigations" in la noir.
schlanz  +   1281d ago
That's funny, I loved all 3 of those games.
FinaLXiii  +   1281d ago
Crysis 2 by far the most overrated.

Its a fun game but no where as good as other shooters.
ThePUNisher  +   1281d ago
How exactly can a game be overrated? Am I the only one that thinks it's nothing more than an arrogant way of saying "game other people like but I don't"?

In order to be overrated surely it has to be rated on some objective scale that most people don't adhere to, but the quality of a game is a purely subjective matter.

If you don't like a game as much as other people do perhaps that's just a matter of opinion and they aren't all wrong? Maybe you could just say that you don't like it as much instead of using terminology that implies that your opinion is somehow factual and objective?
Infiny  +   1281d ago
I strongly disagree with that list.

Dragon Age is flawed, technically yes, but it's an amazing experience and one of the best RPG i've played this generation.

Dead Space sure is milked now, but when it was released it was freaking amazing and done something new at the tps genre.

God of War 3, oh well.. I'm not going to comment on that. I don't even have to.

There are so many overrated games out there that could and MUST be talked about that makes this a fail list.

Fail list is fail. =[

Gotta love how N4G consistently puts opinion based articles on front page as if its actually serves a purpose. The only true purpose for this type of stuff is to get a rise and clicks out of people.
gam3fr33k  +   1281d ago
GTA4 by far. After San Andreas, GTA4 was a huge let down. Yet got perfect reviews everwhere.
chukamachine  +   1281d ago
Thing is, HAZE was never on most people's radar, was never overhyped. it was perfectly playable though, just like lair.

As for GOW3 and DEADSPACE.

kesvalk  +   1281d ago
i agree with the list.

dragon age story was weak, and the system was old and flawed. The only good points of DA:O was Sten and the Dog.

dead space isn't scary, it's just dark, the only ppl that would be scared of dead space is kids afraid of dark places.

GoW is just strange, the only thing it contributed to gaming was Quick time events becoming a staple in this genre, which is not a good thing, the rest is boring gameplay and mindless violence...

Uncharted 2 is not on this list. :(
JDcg  +   1281d ago
I think the author forgot about the Halo series. Well after the first one.
Gamer-Z  +   1281d ago
I think COD is the most overrated game in history, don't get me wrong I love MW1 and WAW but after those two games the series turned into the most boring easy casual FPS ever.
Old McGroin  +   1281d ago
Not the greatest article I've ever read but I do agree with God Of War. I bought the God Of War 1 & 2 Collection for the PS3 to try and get in to the series and I slogged all the way through part 1. I started part 2 and just felt like I was playing the same again and quickly became bored. Definitely the most overrated series I've ever played without a shadow of a doubt.

Garbage list.
capcock  +   1281d ago
non of these games are overrated. Where's CoD, Halo, Fifa etc.
eXclurel  +   1281d ago
"There were numerous times during the game where I couldn’t even see what was attacking me."

It's a horror game. It is supposed to be that way.

Who overrates Dead Space?
bigrob904  +   1281d ago
to me the most overrated game ever is Halo, any halo. i could never understand any of the hype. i mean it is literally just like any other shooter out there. i mean, im not gonna tell you thats it's just not a fun game to play or anything like that, but people act like it's some kind of savior. and i have to disagree with the guy about god of war, those games are great, love hack and slash. there brutal and over the top, and i love it. plus i have a thing for Greek mythology so that makes it even better for me. they should put every call of duty after COD 4 modern warfare and maybe ypou have a good list.
Unlimax  +   1281d ago
There's ONLY one game that stuck on my head : CALL OF DUTY !

The most overrated "franchise" i have ever seen in my entire life !

Most games over 90% on Metacritic.
StreetsofRage  +   1281d ago
ps3 fanboys: Halo should be on that list
360 fanboys: uncharted should be on that list.

Every single time....

I have yet seen anybody actually put up a good argument about why these games are over rated.
SlapHappyJesus  +   1281d ago

Probably THE most overrated game of this generation.
