8 Most Overrated Video Games Of The Seventh Generation

"'Overrated' is a word that gets thrown about like a hacky sack at a California beach party. It’s the modern person’s go-to term for describing something which they believe is getting way too much credit (incidentally, these folk always try to redirect your tastes onto some obscure thing only they’ve heard of). And although you’ll hear people using the word to describe the latest Oscar-winning film or a praised music album, it’s in the video game world that it really comes into its own.

It’s true that for every gamer who praises a game for its innovations, storyline and mechanics, there’s somebody out there who can’t fathom why a game is getting so much praise. Thing is, that somebody isn’t even wrong, given that the inherent quality of any video game is highly subjective – everyone is allowed an opinion, and coherent, well-formed arguments are always welcomed when it comes to this particular medium (there’s a notable lack of them, to say the least)." (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

This list is rediculous

I partially agree with Bioshock infinite and completely agree with GTA IV. A game that should have been on that list is Saints Row 3

None the less. its simply for web hits. agree with none. the amount of time people have devoted to these titles reviewers and consumers alike, just shows how perfectly rated they are. this list is garbage.

Grand Theft Auto V is not overrated, it's probably the best game ever made.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I highly agree with this. Horrible animations, horrible controls and just horrible everything.
Halo 4, I agree with this one too. Traded it in about a month.
Uncharted 3: Deception Deception, Even though it's a great great game, it's still overrated. The story is rushed, and it brought nothing new.

Disagree because of GTA V.

Not a single COD game, it's hard to take seriously from that point.

Minecraft is the most overrated game right now though, seriously what is the point to this game ? it's just awful.
Philoctetes  +   272d ago
Uncharted 3 is actually underrated IMO. It's an extremely good game that gets all kinds of hate for whatever reason.

Completely agree with GTA4 and GTA5. GTA4 was disappointing all around, and while GTA5 has a really good SP story, the multiplayer was broken and empty at least up until the point that I dumped it.
