before i start i know i am going to be leaving about 100,000 games out but this is my opinion.
5. EVERY sonic game
i do not hate sonic but its no super mario bros its a decent side scroller at best.
the new sonic games......just no
4. battlefield 3
sure it has some impressive visuals but its not the second comng
not to mention the gameplay is painful and ohhhhhhhhh the fanboys
3. ARMA 2
this game got fame for being realistic
but that does not make it good it is glitchy has wayy to many bugs and frankly is not a good game at all
and dont tell me its a damn simulation i have heard enough of the Sh*t
2. NEW pokemon games
the last pokemon game i played was pearl.
the last good one was ruby
now its the same thing over and over.
i used to love pokemon!!
What makes it overrated? Well, the fanboys. While they aren't as bad as CoD or Sonic fanboys, are they still bad. For starters, when the endermen came out, I mentioned they are very similar to the weeping angels from Doctor Who and I was flamed at even though the weeping angels did inspire the endermen in some way. There is nothing wrong with that. Second, when I saw Minecraft, I said to a fanboy as a joke "this looks like Lego the Game." and I again I got flamed at. Lastly, I was playing Team Fortress 2 and there was this server I was on where they started to talk about Minecraft and just because I wanted to talk, I said I wasn't a fan of Minecraft and what happened? If you guess I got flamed at then you are half right because one of those who flamed me was a admin I got banned. I am dead serious.
Another reason I hate Minecraft is Notch. Yes the creator. For the many years Shigeru Miyamoto has been making games, he has always been humble. His popularity has never gone to his head and he has never treated himself as a rockstar. Notch has made fewer games and he treats himself like a rockstar. Because of his popularity, he tends to say shit that many forgive when they shouldn't. Sometime last year Notch made a racist tweet. If many other developers made that tweet they would rip that developer apart. However, many defeated Notch by saying it was just a joke and that it wasn't him. He called out Fortress Craft on the 360 for being a rip-off, when his game is a rip-off (Yes, I went there because he went there). The man is a douchebag and I hate him.
Okay I know most of the reasons I think the games are overrated are because of not the game itself but the community like I said before, there is a difference between overrated and bad if you disagree with what I said here, remember these are my opinions. I am constatly reminded that Team Fortress 2 is overrated but what can I do?
