Most Overrated Games of This Console Generation

Games are about gameplay. This would have been a self-evident point only a few short years ago. But in the last console generation, with better graphics, a better sense of writing and narrative, and stronger processors, developers discovered that they could push gaming in other ways. Stories and presentation predominated in many cases. Yet, as some of those pushed the envelope in favor of presentation, they, to the detriment of the games, de-emphasized gameplay. These are the worst. (Industry, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception)

Hey, look, another one of those " overrated " articles bashing critically acclaimed games. It never gets old to complain about MGS cutscenes.
I bet the guy went back to pay COD after writing this

Actually, I write a column called The Strategy Gamer and mostly review strategy games. I did review Call of Duty for another site last year, but I haven't touched it since last November. But thanks for your blatant ignorance about me.

It's hard for something to be overrated unless it's highly rated.

mgs 4 is overrated by their fanbase. mg 3 was way better. it was a movies rather then a game. best things about 4 was graphic & guns because the story was a decent at best hope 5 will be better
