Overrated games

What is the most overrated games you have ever played. I know this has the potential to turn in to a flame war, but honestly, what game failed to live up to all the hype? For me, it was Assassin's Creed. I played for about 5 hours, and found the game play to be insanely repetitive. The abnormally weird story line didn't help.

I think it more depends on what sort of games you like. I felt Battlefield 2 was overrated but I prefer a faster paced shooting game. Then I could say Dragon Age is overrated but I hate western rpgs.

Probably the best example of an overrated game would be a game in a genre(s) you like. Taking that into account I'd say the Uncharted series is overrated. I think the characters and story are awful and the online multiplayers is bad.

The God of War series...incredibly boring. I like shooters and action games, but they are nothing more than button-mashers to me.

The last Madden I bought was 2008. All they do is add some inane feature and update rosters.

MW2, awesome game, but it is not the best game in the COD series. COD4 is easily the best game in the series.

Homefront...just don't like it at all. Was pumped for the campaign and it shit the bed.

I haven't offered a rebuttal on a few games listed because I wasn't wanting to start an argument. A few of my favorite games have been mentioned.

Haven't heard much about it. Its not one of those games that get tagged with 'OMG U HAS 2 PLAY THIS'.

Being overrated also doesn't mean a game is bad necessarily. Just gets more glory and praise from the lowest common denominators than they deserve.

I enjoyed Fallout 3, but I have never played the previous Fallout games. Fallout New Vegas is just a continuation of 3

It's a different location and story line, but feels almost identical.

Anyone who says Red Dead Redemption should really take a long look at themselves in a mirror and then try to help others understand what in the world they could want in a video game? Not to mention saying Gears Of War, Mass Effect and Bioshock were Overrated. Sounds to me like you don't like anything but sports games and if that's the case should stick to reviewing them.

I think you are the only person on this entire planet to believe that Gears Of War, Bioshock, Mass Effect and Red Dead Redemption are all equally overrated.
