iHowtoDo: Video games are all about fair merit but which for some range between merely dull and incredible but imperfect. Well, here are the 10 most overestimated video games of all time.
Grand Theft Auto 5 R u Serious?
what do u expect from the site named ihowtodo.com?
This article is absolute garbage.
Overestimated? I am not sure what the article means. I looked, clicked and it just described each game.
I don't usually say "what a terrible site", but it's the second time today that I've seen an article from this site with a "WTF?" quality. The other one was this: http://n4g.com/news/1531290... Note that, as my comment on this other article says, they just copied everything from another site and erased most of the text. And now they release this list from text taken straight from Wikipedia and don't even give reasons to why they think these games are overrated.
Logically it would be games that were hyped / expected to be amazing and did not live up to said expectations. Perfect example of this would be Aliens: CM, as the final product was nowhere near what was shown in the demo and ultimately made people question what in the world happened. Anyway, after looking at the article I don't get what in the world it is trying to say. I don't recall Assassin's Creed being overhyped or having such an absurd score that it deserves to be called one of most overrated games of all time. The same can be said for a few other games and it really just makes no sense on any real level.
I agree GTA5 was overrated...The shooting was boring...the characters were kind of boring...and the story wasn't interesting to me...that's just my opinion.
In terms of what you just mentioned, I think HomeFront should have been on that list. It was definitely overestimated...meaning it stunk
No aim assist for free aim and the cursor moves when you aim. The shooting isn't just bad, its broken on a technical level.
There shouldn't be aim assist in free aim. You're just a bad player that needs practice.
The point of free aim is no aim assist, that would be auto-aim or aim assisted....
so true. GTA 4 was much much better
gta v was probably the best open world game i have ever played
seriously the only thing i'd knock off gta v is the premise of heist online ..
you know what's "overestimated"? your lousy taste of games.
I don't even know what an "overestimated" game is, but that won't stop me deeming this article, list and title just... well, just terrible. I don't quite understand why this is on 'News For Gamers'.
Well, I think other devs and publishers look at GTA5 in pure awe. A billion in a week is a very impressive feat. Steven Ogg's performance as Trevor Phillips was top notch and only wish Rockstar create a spin off with him as the protagonist as opposed to starting a fresh. One man and a very talented team of devs made that game shine for me. I'll deffo buy GTA5 for the PS4 and start all over again.
Actually, it only took 3 days to hit 1 billion in sales.
Really couldn't have said it better.
I think the word you're looking for is overrated.
I think its over rated. will the nex gen gta have more online players ?
Stevan ogg is going to make a great cowboy in Red Dead 2
Rockstar have never failed to deliver on the hype that their games create, that can't be said about most games from big publishers these days.
I wanna see a TRUE comparison of GTAV and Watchdogs when it comes to PC and new consoles.
GTA V already looks better on last gen consoles than Watch Dogs does on current gen, in my opinion.
Overestimated? You mean overrated, right?
What stupid site is this? No explanation offered for meaning, just lists with a title and a brief description of each game with no real point.
i liked GTA V but i did trade it in quickly for an open world game. The fact that it has a higher metacritic rating is laughable though, especially since the last of us wowed us into giving it 2026 game of the year awards while GTA V received a good but substantially less 139.
Best list i've seen for overated games ever.
Well, this is the dumbest thing I've ever clicked on. Nowhere did it describe what overestimated meant. Does that mean it did better than it should have, worse than it should have, it sold too little, too much. I'm legitimately confused on what this thing was trying to say. I saw no general trend with any of the games either. It might as well have been called "10 random games with varying degrees of success and a brief description.
WHY DID THIS GET APPROVED!?
Next! i'm not reading this reading such ridicule.
