I guess there are two ps3 games in the list
Maybe Resident Evil 5, I'm not sure.
Did this website not go on the internet December-March? I disagree with LBP though, there really wasnt any hype for that.
well the game according was not over hyped.
good article? there was very little explanation given for all 5 so I disagree. and of course the writing/grammar are garbage... however I will agree to both Halo 3 & Gears of War 2 being over-hyped (well I didn't expect that much from Halo not my cup o tea). can't speak to the others having never played them.
"Undeserving" hype? WTF, look up LBP on metacritic, look at the incredible reviews it recieved, it was a pure unique AAA experience.
How is Little Big Planet overrated? That game was fantastic (and this coming from a PC gamer)
Exactly! LBP was completely innovative, unique and never done before. So why would it be overhyped? Unless the author knows another game that lets you play in 2.5D sidescroller and make possibly anything you want, then this choice is bull.
I agree LittleBigPlanet was not overhyped. It delivered on everything it promised except for Online Create Mode which is coming soon.
I'd have to agree that LBP shouldn't be on there. I would add Bioshock on there instead. It was a fantastic game (yes, I have the platinum), but it wasn't perfect (few if any are) and it sure got a LOT of perfect scores and the internet nearly imploded with fanboyism when it was released. -caddad
I got to agree... I cannot speak for most of the other games on that list, but LBP was a fresh "Play Create Share" genre in itself
I guess they mean in terms of hype vs. sales? I dunno, I loved LBP. I think GTA4 should be on there instead. Just my opinion though.
I think FF Versus XIII may end up being overhyped. It will probably be great but people are bulding it way to high and if it doesn't reach their expectations welll....they'll probably say they made it bad so it doesn't overshadow FFXIII.
i dunno about versus. so far we've heard very little about the game itself and so i haven't really seen any1 hype it (cus they wouldn't know what they're hyping lol)
I think the most over hyped game this generation should go to GTAIV. I enjoyed the game a lot but somehow I felt it didn't deserved all the perfect scores it got.
Resistance 2 overhyped? I don't even remember there being much hype for Resistance 2 at all, and I don't remember any "Halo Killer" taglines for R2 either... Haze (and KZ2) were hyped to be "Halo Killer", but R2 definitely wasn't. LBP got a lot of hype, but I think it got the hype for a pretty good reason because it was a very different title compared to everything else released so far this gen. GTA4 and Haze are definitely one of the most overhyped games this gen. to me (in addition to other games that I won't mention) and I was surprised they weren't on this list...especially GTA4 because even though it was a pretty good game, the game itself just got OLD so damn quick, and just after doing a few missions, it just felt like I had played it before, but in just a new coat of paint. Even though GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas had pretty much the same type of gameplay, each one Expanded upon the previous version pretty significantly, and other than Better Graphics and Realism, GTA4 didn't expand upon the others hardly at all. I want the next GTA game to have EVERYTHING that San Andreas had, everything that GTA4 had, and MORE.
Agree with: 1 (Halo 3) 2 (Resistance 2) Disagree with: 3 (Gears of war) 4 (LittleBigPlanet)
R2?? Really? R2 was the redheaded stepchild noone wanted to give a chance. When was it hyped, let alone overhyped.
I don't know.. i guess it was just the hype off the first game. I was really let down by Resistance 2, the multiplayer setup is great, but the story mode, imo was horrible.
tbh resistance 2 is more of a dissapointing sequel than an overhyped game. i actually really enjoyed resistance:fom but hated r2. a lot of ppl prefer the mp in 2 but i just liked the simplicity and 'old school' style of the first. not a fan of the second with all these 'berzerk' powers
Litle big planet was overhyped sony obiously pay off reviewers to give it good scores anybody that will give litle big planet a rating higher than a 3 is a crackhead plain and simple
crackhead? like ur mom??
Or your going to have to answer to me
"corywebb93" target acquired... Your bubbles will be gone tomorrow.
"Dont disrecpect halo Or your going to have to answer to me" This looks like something what a child will say :)
"Your bubbles will be gone tomorrow." u admit to owning multiple accounts then OmarJA??
lol there was no hype on resistance 2 and lbp was the 1st of its genre ever. The following are overhyped multiplats GTAIV Oblivion Fallout 3
Your joking right? It was one of the most hyped games of '09. But it wasn't over hyped. That's the difference. It was one of Sony's better marketed games.
How was lbp overhyped it deliverd if you can go by all the awards it won and the strong community with already 1million creations.
Yea I have no comment on the other games that made that list but little big planet has been lauded with so much positive praise even a year after it was released.. A game that launches a whole new genre in gaming is not overhyped, in fact lbp didnt recieve its just dues... I have a feeling the guy that wrote this article is just some lonely college kid who wants to feel important so he writes a bunch of dribble hoping to get attention....
Great game (I loved it actually), but VERY overhyped. It's hard to not be hyped for AC2, but I can't help it!! Hope it meets my expectations...
LBP Def shouldn't be on that list.
