Top 5 Overhyped Video Games of 2012

From the feature list:

Don't agree with at least 2 of them but it's an opinion, we'll see when sales numbers come out later this year...

Forza Horizon? Overhyped? Come on. Also can we gauge overhype before the game actually releases? I mean what if the game releases and exceeds the hype? Is it still overhype then?

Lets not forget God Of War Ascension, just to even out this list. we now have an even # 2 Multi plats,
2 Sony Exclusive, 2 Xbox 360 Exclusives . all which are overhyped.
