Halo did not start the "tradition" of putting good storylines in games.

And the Halo games are good games, but I think they are very overrated. They're good, but not THAT good.

I would say I would say Street Fighter, Tekken, Soul Calibur, and other fighting games like that are overrated. The new ones don't have anything really that much better about them than the old ones do IMO.

Guitar Hero is also overrated IMO. It's fun, but only for about 15 minutes. Then I'm bored of it for the next 6 months.

All RPG games are overrated IMO. I just don't care for the genre. Same goes for RTS games. I just don't see the appeal to them.

I can think of tons of games instantly that came before Halo that had great story lines. Halo 3's kitsch, mindless, lame sayings in a female voice over and over would make any professional writer shutter.
A couple games with BETTER stories were, Soul Reaver, Elder Scrolls, Dreamfall, Final Fantasy etc etc

The only epically overrated games I can think of at the moment without really thinking are:
Halo
Fable
Black
(although some of that was just overrated hype wise)
I think tons of games people like far more then what makes sense to me but I wouldn't call all popular games I do not like overrated ie Crysis

Games that are overrated?

Any game that hasn't come out yet is overrated.

peeps hype crap up like that all the time. Oh, it's going to be the best, or blah blah blah.

then the **** sucks, like usual.

1. Crysis (Reason: Not much substance)
2. Counter-Strike (Reason: Once you play enough its very repetitive and predictable, which leads to boredom)
3. World of Warcraft (Reason: I can see it being immersive but REALLY, the game may not be repetitive but the motion of playing it sure as h*** is.

*4.Halo Franchise (Maybe: As it was really only a novelty for a short while)

Some people have told me it was ok, some didn't like it, some liked it. I've never heard that it's "one of the best games out there."

And I realize that my post was ridiculous, I was kinda joking. I don't like RPG games or RTS games, and that's all just my opinion.
But I was only kinda joking. I was kinda not joking. lol.

Crysis is not over-rated... jeeez... didn't you people like Farcry? It's the same thing.

My top overrated are:
Final Fantasy 8-12
WoW
CSS

But no games comes close to being this overrated, these two games are imo extremely mediocre and should be forgetten:

Halo 2 and 3
