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 agree. Resident Evil started to lose its characteristics after RE4. I mean, even 4 was not as great as its predecessors.

Resident EviL 3: Nemesis was the best IMO.

Bioshock Infinite, goddamn all those hype and praising. the story and design are excellent... only for the first half of the game, after that the game gets dull fast, I felt regret for spending full price for this sh*t.
personally, I enjoyed Tomb Raider more.

also Far Cry 3, it could've been such a great game if not for the awful story (Vaas seems to be the only reason that have keeping the good score for this game) and a rich but casualization gameplay.

Easy Every Halo ever made

Every war game(every single one is identical to the one before it but they keep making them over and over and people are dumb enough to pay to play them)

The Crisis Games

Resident Evil games

Assassin Creed games

Skyrim(which is funny considering the elder scrolls games were NEVER this popular until now most people never even heard of them until the 3rd and 4th came out even though its been around since the DOS days)

Last of Us(for only a 15 hour game the fact its so popular astounds me....I don't understand how anyone can like it if they beat it in one day.)

Fallout 3

-sh*t combat
-sh*t characters
-sh*t dialogue
-sh*t story
-boring grey and brown scenery

Only thing I thoroughly enjoyed about that game was exploring DC and the Rock-It launcher.

It really depends on the person. It took me 17 1/2 hours over 3 days to beat it. For $60
you get an interactive movie that's story was better than most movies that came out recently.

Sure It probably didn't deserve all the 10's. Maybe some low-mid 9's would have been more
suitable (For some of the glitches experienced) but still for me was a nice cinematic experience.

Plus there is multiplayer which imo is pretty fun.

GTA IV was terrible. Way way overrated.

Come at me bros.

I agree. It's really one of the most boring games that I have EVER played. It's probably in my Top 10 worst list. That's how much I f*ckin' hate it.

I do agree that BioShock Infinite was extremely overrated (is that even a valid word?).

Itís a perfectly cromulent word.

As for GTA IV, on the surface it did appear to be everything everyone wanted. But once it was known that it wasn't going to live up to the hype it had created the reviewers should have been honest with the public. Instead they just left the perfect score in place. I understand that it was the first of it's generation which is why it had it's problems, just like GTA III, but that doesn't give it a free pass to a 10.

10's are handed out way too easily these days. Back when games were ground breaking and ahead of their times they still didn't get the 10 that they deserved. Now if there is any positive hype connected to a game the reviewers just jump on the bandwagon and feed the hype with 10's. It's pathetic.

The length of the game doesn't matter when it's a Game of the Generation like that.

Disagreed: RE4 is my favourite. The story was so convoluted and confusing by that point in the series that it just kind of made sense to have this side story in Spain that was good for newcomers to the series like I was at the time, as the series was like a brick wall in terms of wanting to jump into the RE series. Also, the game was kind of a self parody and had this smart edge to it, and that's about as deep as it gets for Capcom, plus the very good gameplay.

RE5 is where it all went downhill

Fallout 3 is another overrated game for me.

The most overrated that springs to mind is easily Bioshock Infinite. Fantastic story and art direction, but the combat was so, so painfully boring I couldn't even bring myself to finish it.

I wouldn't call Mafia II or Sleeping Dogs overrated, simply because they weren't received that well by the community in the first place (not sure about SR3).

Everyone seems to admit the flaws that Sleeping Dogs and Mafia II made and that it could've been a lot better (even most bought reviews).

Maybe it was overhyped before release, but not overrated after release.

Game of the generation? Really? It's a good game but posting things like that makes you sound like a fanboy. Everyone has their own opinions, just because someone say's that game is overrated, does not mean you have to hit back saying 'Game of the generation'.

Well actually, I've seen a LOT of people say that it's possibly the best game to be made on the PS3.

Until GTAV comes, of course.

I agree with anyone who said Crysis 3. After I bought it I've tried to play it three times and every time I try to play it I look at my other games on the shelf wondering which one I'd rather be playing.

They're not only overhyped, but also overrated. Mafia II got a medium note around 77-78 on Metacritic. In my opinion it's definitely too high. Game that mediocre should have at most 60. This game went to the classic/platinum and similar collections and because of what?

Sleeping dogs isn't that much overrated, but medium note around 80 is a bit too high in my opinion.

Mafia II is more like underrated. One of the best games I have ever played.

The graphics are really good for a Mafia game.

The story especially the final mission was awesome, although I was pissed by the fact that you couldn't free roam after the final chapter.

The gameplay is a mix or realism and fun. I actually liked the traffic rules and the fact that you had to put petrol in your car.

Can't believe that none of you said Uncharted 3. The game is biggest load of sh*t that I've ever played.

- sh*t Graphics
- sh*t Story
- sh*t Gameplay
- sh*t Physics
- sh*t Setting

The only reason I played it is because it came with the PS3 I bought.

It wasn't the biggest load of sh*t but it was definitely disappointing if you have played Uncharted 2.

Mass Effect. I just don't like it. Too many conversations, with choices what to say and sh*t. It's just not my cup of tea maybe.

1 - Every COD after MW1 ( COD 4 ) except BO2, it's the same, yes, but the single-player is actually fun.
2 - Halo 4: Just because it's a classic it's not that awesome. It was good, but not THAT good.
3 - Assassins Creed 3: Stealth Assassin Indeed!! ( What amount of stealth the prequels had was thrown out of window )
4 - Uncharted series: I haven't played any of the games, but I think the game doesn't deserve so much credit.
That's about it. Man I feel good right now.
