By way of the internet and gaming magazines, most of the time we know what games are going to be released up to a year in advance. These games range from brand new ideas, to the annual installment of your favourite game.
Inevitably, this leads to much anticipation. A lot gets written about how good the game is looking in the development stage, but when it comes to the release date, far too often there is a feeling of anti-climax. This list contains a selection of games that left me with that very feeling. They are by no means the worst games ever made (some are actually rather good), but they are games I was expecting far more from when I played them. To put it simply, these games are over-rated."
Another no name website looking for hits.
Sorry, Halo 3 does not warrant that distinction, it maybe slightly over-rated IMO, but the title of Most Over-rated game ever, goes to none other than GTAIV. Wow a 98 on Metacritic! Are you kidding me? It has it's moments, but personally I'll give it an 7-8, no more than that.
I still have it with me though. I played it for like a week and that's it, never even bothered to finish the game, nor do I plan to go back to it. Being a game collector, I don't like trading my games, but if I'm in a bit of a spot, and if there's a new game that I really want, this one will be the first to go.
gambling is like Halo multiplayer, it's all about luck and who the luckiest is
but the most over-rated game ever is GTA4
The title picture says it all.
I still fail to see how something is overrated when it was successful with regards to sales,and longevity.
