Thousands upon thousands of games have been released, but what does 411 columnist Derek Robbins think are the ten most overrated among them? The 10th Hour this week covers the games that perhaps get a bit *too* much credit.
he is telling the truth about halo3 i thought i was only person is the world who felt this way.
Agree with you dude, Halo is very run off the mill. Just been playing the original for the last 2 hours and the whole game is basically the same circular room repeated over and over again with either aliens or zombies in it.

I agree with this guy about Halo, it is very repetitive, I also think a GTA game should be in there, it is also always the same, and I doubt GTA 4 will change the formula
Goldeneye ====> totally disagree, that game was da' bomb FPS in its day. Final Fantasy 7 =====> I sort of agree. A big reason why it sold so well was because Sony gave it a big marketing push. It was a good game no doubt but not legendary like Zelda:OOT or Mario64 (or even GTA 3).
I've always thought the same myself! As a PS Owner and fan, I must say that Halo is not a bad game by any means. I have the original on my PC. It was just hearing people say that it is the best shooter ever and hearing all the critical acclaim and hoopla aggravated me so much when I thought it didn't deserve all that. The first shooter I ever got into was counter-strike and I must say as a matter of my own opinion, I believe deserves more accolades than halo ever should, especially since the game has been around for ages and it is still one of the most re - playable games ever made.
Like he said, Halo 3 is down there with other crap titles like Final Fantasy VII and Goldeneye 007. What a publicity wh0re...
Lame: (28 minutes ago) list of opinions. NOT NEWS. Said opinion is also the minority, and shows that the poster knows nothing about games. Reported by: CyberSentinel I bet you're only saying that because Halo is number 1. We've had other lists of game being either good or bad and no-one complained then.
WORST LIST EVER. THIS GUY WHO MADET HIS LIST IS A BASTERD. I KNOW THATS TIGHT... BUT HE IS GAY. FF fans and Halo fans shud get together on this one
Im sorry but your a complete [email protected]
Wow you are clearly a mature adult who can communicate his opinion properly with the English language. Try spelling "should" right next time and I'll consider what you said.
FF fans should know that the best FF was 6. FF6>FF3>FF7>FF8 Sorry, but just because you like a franchise doesn't mean one of the games wasn't terrible overrated. FF7 was a great game, but not the best game of all time, and not even the best game in the dang series! If your a FF fan, you should enjoy the fact that so many people think FF7 was so great, when you know it's not even the best.
The best in the series has alaways been disputed between 6 and 7, for most 6th had a better storyline but the gameplay mechanics and minigames (such as chocobo breeding) of 7 compensated since the story was never that far behind. Another thing that tend to give ff7 the title for most gamers is its varied areas such as underwater. FF3 was a good game but it has nothing to be remembered for, neither the story nor the gameplay were impressive, 8th on the other hand although the storyline was weak its binding magic system was interesting enough to remember the game also it introduced the world minigame theme that became so popular in the next games by adding the card game. So for most peost people FF7=(disputed goodness)=FF6>FF8>FF3
@rooftrellen - FF3 is a pile of crap, honestly it has the worst (old) levelling system and the story is so bad, you don't even get to know about your characters, you're just thrown in to a battle. That is really bad in an RPG. I haven't played FF6 or 7, but I've heard they are good, don't know which is better, although I really liked FF8. 8 was the last good one IMO.
Can't we just burry this subject and move on with our lives?
I really agree about Halo but everybody already knew that those games are the most over rated of all time. I always thought Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon were underated.
Goldeneye is a great game and so is Mario Kart 64 and I don't see how these games are overrated in anyway.
Perfect Dark Zero is not on this list, this list is a zero.
i agree w/ "4-) Madden after EA sports bought the exclusive rights to the NFL in videogames" and possibly SONIC cd. the rest of those games are GREAT. i`m not into HALO but those who are love it.
The HYPE was huge ... and the game was awful.
this guy pretty much called a few great games overrated
because, some great games are overrated
Yeah I mean it's like because they are great it makes them overrated somehow! Makes perfect sense! I freakin hate people who say the won't play a game because it's "overrated". Well then F you and miss out on great games everyone else is playing.
YES the single player is a disappointment: We do owe Halo for rechargeable shields and no more health packs! Then multiplayer has some of the greatest innovations ever: Matchmaking system in Halo 2 really took xbox live to the next level. Forge. Replays and Saved Videos. Bungie.net link.
but then again it said overrated. So it must mean a lot of people LOVE these games to death. I guess for *me*, skipping Sonic, Mortal Kombat, Sims, Harvest Moon, and halo doesn't say much. P.S. LOL @ Ghaleon from Lunar. he was such an emo in Lunar 2.
I can agree with a lot of this list. I still play Goldeneye with my friends, sometimes, but Perfect Dark...never. I disagree with Harvest Moon on his list, as well. It's not a very hyped franchise, anyway, which makes it hard to be overrated in the first place, and it's a solid game, every time. It's not often the best game, but it's not overrated. I can't say I've heard people really sing the praises of Mario Kart 64, either. However, the best kart racing game didn't come after it, it came before...but I've never heard anyone put Mario Kart 64 above Mario Kart...so I don't see it as overrated. Other than that, though, I can agree with his list. I don't think most of the old ones on there are really bad though...but sometimes old memories can seem better than they were. In fact the only overrated games that really make me mad are the games like Halo, that get a ton of hype and are mearly average, which is happening quite often anymore. Good games in the past that time makes great in our minds...that's not annoying, at least, though, in both cases, games get overrated.
I must also say that I am not a fan of FF titles. Not because of the story, the graphics, no. I am not a fan because when it comes time to battle I don't get to actually use my sword/gun/magic/kick in the shin,poke in the eye/taser gun/knife/chain gun/bio riffle/... you get the point. That is the only reason I don't like FF and that is why I find it to be overrated. Halo... I have never played it but I honestly don't see how it could be better than UT. With UT at least there is a huge community that generates additional content and that keeps the game fresh, and it runs on the PC!!!
stupid article golden eye was not overrated, at that time it was the best console fps for a while until its child (perfect dark) took over. thats like saying doom was overrated. lol.
I disagree with most of the picks on that list.
Good list but i dont agree about Goldneye being there. Goldeneye isnt overated at all.
Good list but i dont agree about Goldneye being there. Goldeneye isnt overated at all. EDIT: Sorry for double post.
lol... that list shows game that changed history as game are concern.. they innovated and introduced gameplay we still see in today's games... Whether a game is overraded depends who you ask... It depends who you ask... FFVII overraded for someone that does not like RPG games.. yes.. for the rest... is not... same with halo, mario cart, Goldeneye 007, etc... To me an overrate game is when a game is advertise as the best game on the planet... and it flop because all the reviews indicate is a bad game and people don't buy it... example? Lair! every game on that list sold very well.. and people liked them and were willing to pay for them...
that would be overhyped not overrated
while there was no doubt in any of our minds that you would use this oppurtunity to throw in yet another dig at Lair...this list had nothing to do with a game delivering on hype...just as 19.1 pointed out... Halo is sort of a mixed bag imo...I think that it has a suprisingly big following for what it is...its frustrating to hear 12 year olds drone on about Halo as the best game of all time, simply because its one of the only games they have every really gotten into...which is my point overall... this guy blends "overrated" with how people still feel about the game...a very large portion of this generation of gamer's first RPG was FFVII...it sure was mine...and because it was the first, I know personally it will never be out done imo...simply because I will never be 12 years old playing it again, and being able to throw 50 hours a week at a game again...it was the game, and its timing for me personally that made it so great...if FFVII came out right now with current generation graphics, but exact same everything else...it wouldn't have a quarter of the impact on me that it did...people that had been playing JRPG's earlier than that will usually point to chrono trigger or earlier FF games as better...but earlier games wouldn't have the same effect on me... Exact same thing with people and Halo...a very large portion of Halo fans admit that it was their very first fps experience (which isn't necessarily bad...its a great fps)...and treat it as the greatest and "king", because it is the game/franchise that got them into that genre...the people that played PC shooters since Doom know for a fact that its not the greatest fps ever, but more a very good fps that pioneered fps control (two analog sticks anyway) on a console...as well as console multiplayer abilities, and the first effective fps at slowing down the gameplay...this is a very large reason for the Halo franchise having a large amount of younger gamers (anyone disagreeing with me can spend just 5 minutes in any public game to hear how many have yet to hit puberty) than some other long running franchises (such as half Life or MGS)... now with all that said I don't really think Halo overall is overrated...but I think Halo 3 was seriously overhyped...it is a good game, but not even the best game of this year imo...it sold well yes, and got great reviews...but it seems like CoD 4 is another great game that resulted in Halo 3 being quickly forgotten...Halo 2 had nothing like that...halo 2 was being played non stop by millions for years to come...it was definitely a case of halo 2 not having any competition on consoles at the time (killzone?...uh...no)...but I don't think the franchise has the towering superiority it used to have anymore... as far as Goldeneye...that is still one of my favorite games of all time...I liked it more than Perfect Dark because PD didn't recreate a movie...at the time no game looked better than Goldeneye for the most part, and it was the first time a movie was believably told through a video game...add on top of that a legendary multiplayer system (albeit local only) and a cheat system that fully replaced "cheat codes" effective
