Yes I agree
But the actual list was not so bad either. The only games that actually lived up to the hype were MGS4, Pokemon and Killzone 2
aliens  +   1592d ago
Yeah, offcourse every PS3 game live up to the hype -.-

Killzone 2 was hyped from 2005, and it sold poorly. Talk about living up to the hype.

You can't deny that some PS3 games are over-hyped. Killzone 2 is the biggest of them. Everybody was saying that it was going to be the best FPS and that it would be a Halo-Killer.

Well. That is wrong.

I have two arguments that back up my statement.

1. It sold very poor for a game that was hyped up since 2005.

2. Look, almost nobody is playing multiplayer anymore. That is because everybody got bored of the game. What how many people do play it daily? 15.000-25.000 or something? That is little.
Immortal321  +   1592d ago
whao that's your definition of not living up to the hype
A game not selling well?

My definition of living up to the hype is when a game delivers, most games don't appeal to others, and most games are just to hard for others.
aliens  +   1592d ago
Read my post AGAIN!

I had another argument for it also. Only 15.000 - 25.000 people play multiplayer daily nowadays. You think with 2+ million copies sold, more people would play it daily... but nooo.

So your statement remains invalid. I have facts. You may think that the game was awesome. But wouldn't many people play online if it was so awesome? No, because the multiplayer is boring and not interesting.

Yeah, yeah, try again bud.

@aliens
actually killzone 2 sold pretrty well for an fps released on playstation platform (fps are never huge sellers on sony platforms) its sold what like 2million now, the marketing was very poor , also did it ever occur to you tha the people that hyped killzone 2 were the people that bought it?

also mgs4" lukewarm public reception" 1st of all anyone buying a mgs game is going to expect lengthy cutscenes is this a problem to the fans NO why? because its the end of one of the greatest video game franchise why should the story be underwhelming ,mgs 4 isnt trying to win over new fans because its the last game in the series so naturaly the story is going to appeal the mgs fans and excuse me but didnt mgs 4 win over 30 GOTY awards? MGS4 was a game to end an incredible story driven franchise and i could not have thought of a better way of ending it also isnt it the best selling game on the ps3? mgs4 lived up to ther hype if not surpassed it it was the reason i bought a ps3 and im happy because of it
Smash Daddy  +   1592d ago
That may be true, but...
Not everyone who buys games plays multiplayer.
Major_Tom  +   1592d ago
It's easy to spot an Xbox fanboy, they start talking about sale numbers and how useless all the games are on PS3.
aliens  +   1592d ago
Wow. So your now going to call me for a Xbox 360 fanboy, just because I was trying to explain to you guys that Killzone 2 was over-hyped and did not live up by its hype.

And sales, and how many people play it daily is facts, that helps to tell if the game lived up to it's hype or not.

Sales = If people were interested, they would have bought it. That tells me that Killzone 2 failed to gain attention of the PS3 owners. And Modern Warfare 1+2 suceeded on that.

How many people play it daily = That tells us if the game is giving entertainment to those that bought it. 2 millions bought it. Only 15.000 - 25.000 play it online. That tells me that the game failed to entertain the audience, and was starting to get boring.

CMRB BELOW response:

15.000 - 25.000 people play online daily. You talk about how good the game is. SO WHY IS NOT PEOPLE PLAYING IT? Only 15.000 - 25.000 of 2 millions? If the game was good, then many people that bought the game would have been playing online. Maybe your the child here that can't understand that logic.

The mind of a child.

1. 2 million sold and counting is a very big number. Most games in their lifetime don't manage to sell 1 million.

2. Game hype is not about how well a game will sell. Have you ever hear any one say they are hyped about how many copies a game will sell?. No, its about how good the game will be.

Edit: LMAO!!!. Man stop it. You are showing your age with your posts.

1. PS3 gamers != x360 gamers. PS3 != x360. Simply you cant compare them and make stupid assumptions.

2. A game played on-line dosen't mean it's the overall most popular game duh!!. So what about the millions that are playing wii sports offline?. What about millions of those that are playing SP games?. Are they not popular games because they are not played on-line?.

Look child. You can't just compare apples to oranges because they are not the same. What if X consoles only has half the installbase of Y console?. Is it fair to compare games popularity sold on each?. What if X consoles gamers like FPS more than Y console gamers?. What if X console gamers are kids that play online most of the time while Y console owners are adults that have to work most of the time?. Think about it.

Seriously, stay in school.

to contrast i also got probably the most UNDER hyped masterpiece this gen:

valkyria chronicles =)

@ alien

your argument matches your display picture

a) over-hype =/= sales - this means, just because a game is over hyped, doesn't mean it won't sell well (Halo was so over hyped and was so lacking in relation to the hype, but it sold like hotcakes)

b) Have you played KZ2? It is a fantastically well put together game, extreemly entertaining, and VERY fun and challenging

maybe it was over hyped, but it did come very close to the hype in comparison to "other" games.

Don't be so butt hurt just because others have an opinion that shakes the foundations of your favotirism

edgeofblade  +   1592d ago
Good list, in that the author provides some flamebait for everyone.

Gears? Yeah, kinda overhyped. It had a lot of potential... and honestly met quite a bit of it. But Gears 2 just kinda sputtered off my radar.

Killzone? Definitely overhyped. Aside from the things the multiplayer did amazingly right, it got so many fundamental things wrong, like thinking people wanted "weighted" controls. And they didn't. Look a the mountain of complaints. They even patched in a "high-precision" mode.

Halo? Not that overhyped. Even the author gave props where due: the multiplayer. But I could totally grant that Halo is a bunch of decent set-pieces tied together with a second string writing effort.

Smash Bros? Pokemon? COD:MW? Those are awesome pictures.

"unlike halo3 kz2 is not the only High quality game on the system

Exactly. PS Brand is known for being very diverse unlike the "ShooterBox."

MS was saved by Halo, and now survives on it and Gears. What are the other top sellers on the 360?

Sony has... Well to many. At least one game per genre. And even some for genres that don't even exist, yet. To expect them to all sell 8-10 million each is, well... LOL

Hyped or not, i loved GTA4 and Halo 3, i enjoyed MW2 as well. I dont have to think they are the best ever, but i did enjoy them and the fact that they were hyped makes no difference, i just dont care anymore.

Give me an effin break. The only people who were "lukewarm" about MGS4 were people who couldn't play it.
tehk1w1  +   1592d ago
I dunno. I quit playing after the tenth incredibly boring, pointless monologue about nano machines.

Gameplay was decent. Graphics were amazing. Cutscenes looked stunning.

Terrible writing and horrid story absolutely killed it for me, though.
EvilCackle  +   1592d ago
The fact-checking for "OMG DEEZ GAMES IS OVERRATED!" lists usually isn't very thorough. The writing process goes like this:

1. Jot down ten things people like.
2. Make headline using the words "Overrated" or "Overhyped"
3. Submit to N4G
bjornbear  +   1592d ago
I am playing MGS4 atm.
i stopped right at the last level (teh boat =D) because i got side tracked, but i do have the same critisism as many:

the cut scenes aaare a bit over whelming. However, i never stopped enjoying the game, and i appreciate the game for what it is:

easily one of the most stunningly designed video games ever. Kojima-san is a genius and I absolutly LOVE this game

and the story...well lets say it takes a certain level of "thinking" in order to appreciate, even understand the very deep and well written story.

As said before: if you don't get it, you won't like it. If you do get it, you'll love it.
tehk1w1  +   1592d ago
At first I thought, "hey, maybe Kojima is making a thinly veiled criticism about the United States selling out to military contractors and before long all we'll need to do is hire private armies to do our dirty work."

And then he starts throwing in monkeys and dudes taking craps in the middle of the street and I think, "Nah."

At best, Kojima is a smart man's Michael Bay. He has some good ideas, but at heart, he likes making stories about chicks with big boobs, fart jokes and giant robots killing things. The tons of melodramatic monologues about nano machines and stuff really can't disguise that.
edgeofblade  +   1592d ago
I was somewhere between lukewarm and hot on MGS4. Certainly worth playing. I won't argue that.

I was ice-cold on that piece of sh!t multiplayer, though.
Cenobia  +   1592d ago
@tehk1w1
While I don't think your points are outlandish, and do have some merit, all of your problems could have been avoided by pressing the fudgin SKIP button.

It was definitely a little melodramatic and some scenes lingered for a while, but I still thought it was a great game. I don't think I've ever played a game that ended so completely.

I liken it to the end of lord of the rings. It had the same lingering-ness to it, but at the end you felt the story was totally complete. That's all Kojima was going for, and he didn't sacrifice gameplay in any way (also the SKIP feature...). Nanomachines is actually a pretty believable (in a sci-fi kind of way, meaning it makes sense without making sense, if that makes sense...) answer to all the crazy sh!t that happened throughout all of his games.
Rocket Sauce  +   1592d ago
@ bjornbear
You're right, I don't get it.

I totally get why people like MGS 4. It's got ninjas, robots, explosions, fart jokes, boobs...all that good stuff. What I don't get is why people think it has a brilliant story.

This series has always been a little stupid, but fun (remember the bad guy in the first game thinking his recessive genes made him weak?)

But MGS 4 went full-retard.

I didnt agree with the order, Just the titles on it. Also you dont undrestand my friends pure OBSESSION with Brawl. He tried to make us play it everytime we called around. Unfortunately for him, he was the only one who actually liked it.
I had never played Melee but I heard it was amazing. I was nothing but dissapointed when I played Brawl. Fun for an hour but it is extremely repetetive

And by the way: I liked Fable and KZ etc but I just dont believe they were as fantastic as everyone pegged them to be.

GTA IV shouldn't be in the list. Yes, it was extremely hyped, but it met that hype and surpassed it as the greatest game of this generation so far. Actually, it is the second highest rated game of all-time, just under The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on MetaCritic.

Now I know I'll get attacked by all the PS3 fanboys who are still bitter about missing out on 30 hours of the GTA IV experience with The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Don't worry though, guys. 360 owners may get $20 exclusive downloads for the grestest game of the gen that each have higher presentation values and more gameplay than most full games, but you guys get some great exclusive DLC, too!

Jamescagney  +   1592d ago
I didn't like FFVIII really, it overcomplicated things imo. Although to be fair I didn't give it much of a chance, I got it cheap and played it for a few hours. But then that could be an indication of how much I didn't like it.

The only FF games I've ever enjoyed are FFVI,FFVII and FFX.

1. Grand Theft Auto 4
I enjoyed it alot and it sold very well,had DLC spinoffs that did/do well. I wouldnt put it on my personal overhype list.

2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Its popular and reviews ive read put it above MW. Guess its worth the money to those that want it. No hype there.

3. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
See MW2

4. Halo 3
Over 2 years old and still demands a higher price tag on the shelves than 2 month old games in some cases. Didnt like it myself very much.
New nothing of the story and had no broadband untill very recently which put it at a disadvantage to me.

5. Wii Sports
Ehh..Its easy to pick up and fits the demographic of Wii buyers. Match made in heaven. No hype IMO.

6. Pokémon
I was too old to get into the Pokemon craze when it started years ago and have no regrets. Hype?? Nope. Complete indifference to whoever would enjoy a game like that?? Yes.

7. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
No comment. Never got into Metal gear games.

8. Fable II
Im actually planning on picking this up one of these days.

9. Killzone 2
No comment.Never played it.

10. Blue Dragon
No comment,Never played it.

11. Gears of War 2
I have the first one. Its OK,but I have other games I enjoyed more.Im not sure if I would like the UC games either. The best 3rd person game ive played this gen in Dead Rising followed closely by Dead Space (Games with "dead in the title oddly end up in my collection)...

That list is terrible. Each of those games did well in both reception and sales.

Games such as Haze, Too Human etc. deserve to not deserve the hype they got. They deserve to be on the list, not games that are good. MGS4, Gears, MW2, Killzone 2 etc., met the hype. They all turned out to be really great games and as according to the industry as a whole, it's a fact.

Fail list. MGS4, KZ2, SSBB, and Pokemon weren't over hyped. Hell imo MGS4 was underhyped. That game doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

1.KZ2 is still somehow being overhyped...

2.MGS4 was just an awesome game.

If I had to add one or two games,they would have to be ODST and UC2.

ODST was an ok game, but for as much hype that it got, you would think it was the best game of the year. UC2 is very good, but the amount of hype that game received was not equal to how good the game actually was.
