"Hey guize, I picked 10 really popular games and made the title '10 overrated games'. Has this ever been done before?"

Arkham City deserves the praise. Halo Reach was good, certainly a ton better than ODST and Halo 3. KZ3 is UNDERrated. Uncharted 3 is one of the best games of this gen. The only game on that list that is kinda overrated is Skyrim, but that happens with every Bethesda game.

In what reality was Reach ever better than Halo 3??? Halo 3 is easily one of the best 5 games of this generation.

I agree with your first point on how critics chose the most popular games which are all well-received and then call them overrated, but...

Uncharted 3 is one of the best games this gen? Fuck no. It sucked, Uncharted 2 is a lot better and even that is nothing special. I don't understand what it is people like about Uncharted? The visuals? If so then they're really nothing special and by the time next gen comes they'll look ugly. The gunplay isn't great, the platforming is too fiddly, the stories are mind-numbingly dumb (catered for the mass audience who don't care about stories in games I guess), the characters have no depth, the multiplayer is too complex in UC3 (Uncharted 2 has great straight-forward multiplayer) and the musical score is completely unremarkable and forgettable.

I think Uncharted will be forgotten about next-gen when every game has amazing graphics and epic set-pieces, they're undeniably the two most cited reasons for why people like Uncharted. I hardly ever see anyone praise anything else about the games, although some simpletons praise the unbelievably shallow and cliché stories.
