Love how this article can claim MW3 is overrated when it hasn't been released yet

"Does this one need explanation? MW3 is going to be the exact same thing as MW2 with a different story, a number 3 slapped on it, and MORE GREY! Regardless of this, it will most likely be one of the most played games of 2011. No thanks, ill stick with my BF3 and U3."

MW3 can't be on the list. No buts about it

I liked LBP2. Where is changed from LBP was the ability to make games and other mechanics were refined. It was basically what LBP should have been

Not as much. LBP2 added a much more goal oriented aspect to the game, and it was just frustrating. Those individual hats really ruined the experience for me, considering I liked the simple, wacky gameplay of LBP.

Also, saying that MW3 is overrated isnt exactly that far off. Sure, it is a little unorthodox considering it has not come out yet, but that comparison to MW2 is pretty accurate, because they arent going to change something that has gotten them so much success [Multiplayer modes, Zombies]. And FFS it has the same graphics engine.

MUFUGGA. Deus Ex HR was NOT overrated.

*Facepalm* wouldn't know the truth if it smacked you in the face.

I hate the word "overrated" it is completely overused in any community. If an individual or a group of people don't like a game (or whatever)do great lengths as another person of group they call it overrated. It's Sardonic, asinine and (insert word here). It's just dumb and frustrating.

I must admit, this list is quite bad.
Dark Souls was hardly hyped and is hardly talked about. But it just so happens to be overrated.

Its like he forgot about the whole first half of the year and the slew of overrated games that were released.

I just played Deus Ex and even though I didn't complete it, it deserved ALL the attention it got.

As for LBP2, I don't believe that's overrated either. I'm currently creating a level for my US Government class project.

iDotDotDot2415d ago

That's cool about the LBP2 thing.
Quite awesome actually.

MoXxXi2415d ago

Deus Ex wasnt that great. I dont see why so many people are so obsessed with it. The boss battles were atrocious, the graphics and mechanics were horribly flawed, and it felt to me like I was playing Portal 2 with an actual gun...

Sure, it was fun, but surely doesnt deserve all the attention it got.

MoXxXi2415d ago

The graphics, as well as the actual controls just felt exactly like Portal 2s. It didnt have a realistic feel to it, something other FPS games had.

GuruGavrill2415d ago

Graphics don't compare to Portal 2, I don't see why you keep saying that.

Number_132415d ago

MW3? How can a game that isn't even rated yet be overrated?? *sigh* Fail article.

Quagmire2415d ago (Edited 2415d ago )

Portal 2.

Szarky2415d ago

I'm guessing you didn't have a buddy to enjoy the great co-op aspect of the game?

Quagmire2415d ago

Oh no I LOVE the games, its the fanboys who praise it like the second coming I dont like.
