10 Overhyped Games From 2012 That Actually Sucked

WC: If there’s one thing worse than a franchise being milked dry, it’s a game that everyone hypes up purely because it’s a considered a “major release.” Gamers tend to ignore many flaws in a game purely because it’s being released by a major publisher and that, dear readers, infuriates me to no end.

I played many games in 2012. And after completing many of them, I was shocked to read that a whole bunch received positive reviews and awards. Should I just give up on playing new games, sell my PS3 and brush the dust off my older consoles? In this article I’ll be exploring games that I feel were completely over-hyped in 2012 – games that not only did well but were given critical acclaim across the board. Strap your seat belts on chaps… it’s going to be a bumpy ride. (Catherine, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Halo 4, Journey, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

rrrrrgghhh What Culture sort you website out. You can fit multiple sections on one page

Most of these games do not "suck". You may have been disappointed but there is a big difference between that and it sucking

This "How people can attribute a character walking through an empty desert dotted with a few ruins to being on the same par as RPGs is beyond me" shows you do not understand reviews at all.

Using Journey as his image in this article proves he's just fishing for hits by choosing something he knows is popular and insulting it.

For the record, I've not yet played Journey.

Journey's epic. It totally deserved the hype it received.

I haven't read this article in full, primarily because I must navigate 10 pages instead of 1, but if Journey is in this list the author's trolling. End of.

Yeah I've only recently played Journey and I thought it was going to be a little over hyped but it's really not. The game is amazing and deserved the awards. I was actually really surprised how good it was and how much I enjoyed it.

A list full of good games if you ask me and no where near bad.

Also Star Wars the old republic was not on the list so therefore he was just e-trolling for webhits.

Story = WTF
Like Website = NO

You know it is Very true people are very opinionated and opinions can go from one end of the spectrum to another. For example I really enjoyed Journey and a hyped upppppp game like Farcry3 I found so boring and monotonous I don't even play it.

So I don't knock Anyones views because Farcry3 sucked IMO but I know alot of ppl love it and I understand why they do. There's a game and a gente for everyone.

By the way currently playing Ni No Kuni and it is a great gem.

journey was in FACT the best game of 2012. It won various game of the year awards and was better than.

Halo 4
Assassins Creed 3
Mass Effect 3
Playstation All-stars Battle royal

not fact... your opinion.

just like I have my own, but I don't consider my own fact.

FF13-2 was considered to be good?

Better than FF13 maybe, but that's not the same as good.

Ahhh... gaming journalism... what the hell happened to you? Is it something we gamers did? ...or didn't do? What brought you to this lowly stage?
