What are some of the most Overrated Games this gen?

Honestly, I think Skyrim is the most overrated game of all time. This game got so much praise and it so unplayable. It won GOTY for 2011, but it should have won BOTY (Beta of the Year). Graphics, trash. Combat, trash. Gamebreaking glitches, doo doo textures, background elements popping in like this was San Andreas on the PS2, everything screamed NOT FINISHED! The DLC came out THIS YEAR for the PS3 because it wasn't working on the PS3. It wasn't the PS3, it was Bethesda. You wanna talk about fanboys? They damage controlled the game to no end.

To be honest, I though Oblivion was way better than Skyrim. Though I played Oblivion after wards, so I need to give it another chance

Assassins Creed 3.

Finally someone speaking the truth. All Skyrim is good for is a half-decent exploration simulator.

This is my list (JUST MY OPINIONS)

I have no clue how people like these games but...

- Black Ops 2 (it was somewhat good)
- Skyrim (I agree with you KFranchise)
- The Walking Dead (need I say more...)
- Saints Row: The Third (possibly SR4 too)
- Assassin's Creed III

Remember these are my opinions... don't hate me for them confused.gif

since no one else has mentioned it yet, Crysis 3 comes to mind.

Crysis (and Warhead) was revolutionary in a lot of ways.
Crysis 2 was epic. huge game.

then you have Crysis 3 which feels like The Matrix Revolutions; all the hype went to waste. compared to the previous 2 it was a joke.
Crysis 3 was incredibly short and the ending was terrible.

the whole world was under invasion but we just went back to New York so that the guys @ Crytek could just re-use as much of the old content as possible.
god forbid you do something original with the climactic finale.

Probably going to get lynched, but The Last of Us, great game but no where near as some people make it out to be.

Top 5 from most overrated to least:

1. Bioshock Infinite
2. Skyrim
3. Every CoD
4. Assassin's Creed 3 (pre-release)
5. TLoU

*every other PS3 game*

99999. GTAV (seriously nobody besides us seems to acknowledge the scale of V. Most internet users seem to see GTAV as GTA IV with palm trees so far).

1) AC3 ( One of the most overrated games this gen )
2) GTA IV
3) MW3 and BLOPS 2
4) Skyrim ( I'm sick of people saying it's the best game ever )
5) Crysis 3

Just like someone else said people on the internet or most that disliked GTA IV think V is going to be like IV with palm trees.

CoD, honestly it's just endless killing, it gets repetitive after a while, I didn't even get through the first prestige.

Black ops 1 and 2.

I'll admit I play black ops 2 still here and there but that's because my friends play it.
Idk Treyarch's Call of Duties can't match the polish of Infinity Wards's imo.
Sometimes I can deal with it and sometimes I can't. It's weird. The knifing
is like a T-Rex trying to use a fork. The netcode is pretty terrible. Well, you could say that
about every call of duty I guess.

got through maybe 75% of the story and deleted it off my Hard Drive.

I'm not too sure how overrated this game is, because I'm not too sure what the critical reception was, but Resident Evil 6 was a serious disappointment.
I''ve been a big fan of the Resident Evil series since RE2. People complained about RE5, but I enjoyed it a lot more than RE6. The physics & all the new mechanics just felt out of place. And the game just wasn't fun. & Mercenaries mode stunk.

I just don't know what it was about Skyrim that made it so much less interesting to me than Oblivion. Maybe it was the setting. It improved on gameplay in so many ways, characters looked better... I just don't know why.

Haha, most the time I try to finish games I don't like so people can't say "You would have liked the end" or something stupid but I couldn't even get myself to finish it either.

There wasn't much risk, it took effort to try and fall off a building. I was seriously disappointed in the game. sad.gif

Bioshock Infinite.

Loved the first 1-2 hours then it just became same old same old. Then about 7 hours in i started thinking it isn't even improving on the first one which was 6-7years older. Very overrated and the story was overrated too.

AC3.

I loved AC2 and Brotherhood. Revelations was distinctly average and AC3...simply BORING. Which is the worst crime a game can commit. Ubisofts greed ruined this franchise.

Believe me, everyone else feels the same about that game as you do. It is by no means overrated at all, as to be overrated, it has to be seen as good in the first place by a lot of people. Everyone hates RE6 because its a sh*tty pandering to 13 year olds.

For me, Metro 2033. Good game, yes, but a little bit repetitive.

Yes, i'm f*cking saying it.

The Last of Us is way too overrated, and didn't deserve a perfect score, it has a lot of glitches and terrible AI.

I mean what the hell? It has lots of glitches, but then TBOGT gets 9,2 because of "lame tank?" bored.gif

but yeah TLOU is overrated as f*ck, wouldn't be surprised if Sony paid the reviewers to give the game a perfect score, it didn't deserve it. TBOGT didn't deserve a 10, but you get my point.

I could say the same thing about IV. It doesn't even deserve a 9.

AI is better than most console games. Sony didn't pay reviewers just like Rockstar didn't pay for GTA IV.

Saints Row: The Third.

It was a massive disappointment compared to the first two games, but still got generally positive reviews.

I have to agree with Elusion123. TLOU is amazing, but it is overrated (if slightly). It's not perfect by any means and before Redx fires back about GTA IV I agree reviewers overrated it.

My personal score is 9.3/10. Whether anyone agrees or not I don't care.
