Overrated Games? - Page 16

post #151 of 238
Hands down SPORE is the most overrated game ever to exist. Also COD5 is just reskined cod4, major failure.

WoW, HL2, Spore, Crysis (Although fun the first few replays).
I played about 2 hours of FarCry2 before I put it back on the shelf. It's so repetitive in game it makes me want to vomit all over my keyboard. Checkpoint after checkpoint after checkpoint, Enemies run faster than the damn cars... Only thing that was interesting was screwing around in the map editor. Has there been a patch released for FC2 yet?

Crysis:
Ok this game looks good but really...no replay value whatsoever and the game does get kind of old after a while.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2:
.....no comment. The first wasn't that good, still haven't tried the second.

Neverwinter Nights 2:
Good idea, bad spell effects/coding problems.

Then there are other games which are on my personal lookout list

Ninja Gaiden 2
Mass Effect PC
Fallout 3

as well as some more. I'm just curious as to what some people think about games getting all hyped up and then playing it and have to sit there and wonder what all that hype was about.
Oblivion is the only RPG game that I can stand to play (of all the ones I've tried). I don't love it, but it's good. So if I liked RPG games, I'd probably like it a lot.

I played like an hour or so of Crysis and thought it was really fun from what I had played so far. But I don't think I played enough to get much of the story, and I heard the gameplay changes a pretty good bit once you get deeper into the alien stuff.

I liked Vegas and Vegas 2... they weren't great, but they were pretty fun IMO. I never thought that they got all that much hype (they did get some, but not a lot), and since I think they're OK, I wouldn't say they're overrated.

I absolutely hate you for saying Half-Life 2. HL2+Episodes+Portal are the greatest games ever made. Your opinion is now worthless.

Thank you for your time on OCN

btw, I think the Halo series is overrated. I mean, it's pretty good, but it's not THAT good.

Bioshock, FarCry 2, Fallout 3, GTA IV.

I just could not get into those games no matter how hard I tried. It's come to the point where I go back and try and play them like once a month just to see if I can catch a glimpse of what other people are raving about. So far, I've been unsuccessful.

I wasted so much time playing Halo 2.

Anyway, Crysis was way overrated, one of the few games I purchased, and was majorly disappointed.
Although maybe that was cause I was running it on an 8800GT?

oblivion and falllout arent overrated they just are not your game type! you should realize that they have massive replay value and are longer than 90% of games! plus free will and a massive world umm overrated umm k?

Crysis yes overrated just looks good at max!

GTA 4 overrated beyond belief have you tried comparing it to any other GTA it doesnt even compare! let alone Saints Row 2
