Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. Ugggggh. What a waste of money. LVTDUDE 00:09, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Halo 3 for sure. I was almost excited, played the game 5days before release because my parents own a blockbuster so i got it early. finished game 4days before release. and then noticed how extreemly overrated it was when release came out. the game isn't even that good for gos's sakes! halo 2 is WAY, WAY better.

Guitar Hero: World Tour. Rock Band 2 is much better, as it has better and more realistic charting, characters that doesn't look like they're taken out of a Cartoon Network-show, and a drumset that has three toms so that you actually can do standard fucking rolls. Also, and this is just my opinion though, it has a far better setlist, and muchmuchmuch better DLC. There are like two or three songs in GH:WT that I like, while there are two or three songs in RB2 that I don't like. --KillerIsMe 19:13, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Why the hell is Bioshock on this list? The thing is a masterpiece!

Also, GTA IV is overrated. It went from wacky and violent in the earlier games to a "serious" and "moving" game. In short, the story was boring, game mechanics stiff and you had to drive your cousin around every 10 minutes. The fourth installation of the series was a gigantic flop, because it forgot what the sandbox players wants: Sheer, mindless fun. Saints Row 2 was much, much better.

Wait, why isn't Saints Row 2 on the list? AngryNorwegianDude 08:07, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

My big beef against Bioshock was the enemies. They were all too much alike. And even the big daddies were not much fun to fight - they weren't that hard to survive against, but you had to sit there pumping rounds into them for ten minutes before they'd go down. The disturbing atmosphere also made the game less fun to play. The storyline was great though, and you could shoot bees at people. I might also like it better with a better system - I had to make do with stuttering framerates and a mediocre resolution. I haven't tried it since upgrading my video card and ram.

Oh yeah, and that wavy visual effect when you look out of windows was damningly unrealistic. Imp of the Perverse 23:34, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

I agree with ngryNorwegianDude, GTAIV SUCKED! me and my bro are hardcore gta fans and we only done about half of gtaIV because it is too GOD DAMN BORING!!!!! and wtf? saints row 2 and bioshock are true works of fine art. saints row 2 kicks GTAIV's ass all the way back to london. and bioshock is awesome aswell.Silent.Killa78 >:) 08:14, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Dude I played GTAIV at my half-sister's house (dont ask please) literally for less than 10 min and it was a dud. Like people said it is too "real". I also hate gears of war, people say its good but I dont get whats wrong with them...Mr snip 09:36, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

In general, I am tired of games that feature grizzled space marines. Halo, Gears, you name it. There is no creativity. In the NES age, games could feature French chefs riding velociraptors, while they fired at ants with a gun that shot chainsaws. Now, we are stuck in an era of gaming that cares more about graphics than good storyline, decent gameplay and actual, working game mechanics. The last game I played that wasn't either an uninspired FPS shooter (Like COD 4) or a "freeform" sandbox game (like Assassins Creed) was Saints Row 2. Most fun I've had in years:

Judge : "Mr. Gat, I am curious if you can keep your cocky attitude with 2000 volts running through your body?"

Johnny Gat: "And I am curious if you keep acting like a douchebag when I shove that gavel up your ass."

(The protagonist breaks in to the courtroom, kicks in a door over a policeman, and fires three shots into the ceiling. Everyone ducks under their benches)

Legal Lee, Johnny Gats lawyer: (peeps over a bench) "Anyone hit and need a lawyer?"

Priceless to the point of spontaneous combustion. AngryNorwegianDude 10:13, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, FPS games really suck, everything is extremly linear, go through this door, follow this hallway, listen to radio bitch whining, 3 monsters comes out which I've killed 200 times before, trying to scare me in a ridiculous way, kill them, go to next room, go left, go right, go straight, go left, kill, go straight, kill, end of that campaign/map. Most FPS games are totally overrated aswell is Final Fantasy Series and freaking Resident Evil 5. Worst game in the series. I'm, Adjust. 11:15, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

I agree for the most part, except for COD4. It has one of the best FPS storylines I've ever seen, and the multiplayer is hands-down the best on 360. Broeman 18:37, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

gabriel,please refrain from calling resident evil 5,er....resident evil 5,its proper title is resident evil 4:Worthless stupid partner HD remake Werewolfhell 16:07, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Halo 3. Everyone was saying "ZOMG HALO 3 IS TEH BEST!!!1" I got it free with my console, and are glad to say it was shit. Also, the multiplayer? How is that the best in the world? I hated the game with every fibre of my being, but I'm not going to sell it, oh no, I don't want some other poor sap to have to experience this pathetic excuse for a game.

FPS games are good, but they are very overrated. I was expecting a big explosive ending in Halo 3, but I didn't get it. The multiplayer is fun, but the campaign sucks harder than a thousand leeches. All future FPS games should just entirley be about have massive guns that fire nuclear missiles that blow up entire planets while you fight off armies of robot dinosaurs and 500-foot daedra. Now THAT would be fun. -Xandus the Legend

LOL AngryNorwegianDude knows about Zero Puncuation too. -Xandus the Legend

I do. Yahtzee is the most awesome thing that has happened to the internet for a long time. I cite him every time it is possible. Hopefully, he doesn't find out and sue me.
Also, did I mention that Killzone and Resistance are bad games? They are. Very, very overrated. AngryNorwegianDude 15:24, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

OOO, another Zreo punctuation fan. Yahtzee is definately the worlds best game reviewer. mainly because he speaks the truth and thinks portal is really good. Silent.Killa78 >:) 02:46, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

SSBB is also very overrated. Nintento fans were calling it "Greatest Game Ever" as soon as it came out. My ass. The game is almost exactly the same as Melee, the only difference being some extra features and characters. Honestly, Soulcaliber is WAY better fighting game and Nightmare could own every Nintendo character in a battle. -Xandus the Legend

Got to say WoW, yes it is addicting buuut after two weeks of farming you release "There is no way in hell that is this fun and I am going to have the best character ever." Then you give it up.

Why in hell is CoD 5 on the list. It's a good FPS (although not as good as 4) and what makes it really awesome is the Nazi Zombies, which I like more than almost anything else (except bacon and fallout 3 of course). Really, those zombies are f*cking addicting.

Ok .... here goes .. prepare to be astounded .. but my favourite game is Final Fantasy X , im sorry fellow fallout 3 fans , im sorry , but its the truth ... anyways most overrated game is Halo 3 , SUPER SOLDIER KILLING ALIENS , Holy shit best story EVAAAR , yeah gameplay sucked , story was shit , setting was shit , main charecter is a moronic gremlin , so basicly a massive stinking turd sitting in the middle of almost every game shop there is .. :( , also , Yahtzee is the best game reveiwer there is :P he speaks the truth and doesnt try to hide the bullshit , and is really funny :P

The CoD series and Rockband are both more overrated than anything else on the list(and Rockband ain't even on the list). Halo 3 and BioShock are both awesome games.--Ryker6102:00, January 31, 2012 (UTC)~6:00pm 1/30/2012
