The entire sports game genre is overrated in my opinion. I understand that a lot of players are deep down inside atheletes spiritually, & I respect that, but at the same time I worry about their intellect. Now that we live in the age of patches & updates, EA & others (such as Konami's Winning Eleven soccer series) should just release one base version, & patch/update new features, roster changes, & other such items. Madden series has already been able to update in real time (through a connection to the Weather Channel) weather in actual stadiums provided you're connected to PSN/XBox Live. They also had in NBA Live 09 an access code that updated actual rosters in real time so if players were injured or not playing, they would follow suit in-game. So why year after year is it necessary to shell out another $60 for menial changes? Bottom line, these like all series will have their rabbid fanbases but seriously, they will catch on if these franchises continue without massive groundbreaking changes & the answer to mediocrity is right at their fingertips....

Oh, wow.

I'll agree on Assassin's Creed, it was a really good game, but the hype it received was INCREDIBLE. I think it was just ground-breaking at the time.

I didn't play much into Final Fantasy VII. It was my favorite FF game so far, but you're right, the hype is unnecessary. Advent Children and all the other spin-offs were just silly.

Golden Sun was just another RPG, but with flashy visuals. For the GBA, flashy visuals were pretty damn amazing.

Apart from that...what the heck? I love Halo to death, it took quite a while for it to get boring, and after a few weeks I'll stop being bored. The multiplayer is great, the only downside is the retards you'll find online sometimes.

That is the main reason I don't like Halo. It's a fun shooter which you can get together with your buddies to play once in a while but god does it attract immature 12 year-old's. It's definitely one of the worst in the aspect. The thing is I see why Halo is fun but Unreal tournament 3 does the same but a lot faster with a ton of more stuff.

That was the thing -- it's a fun game to play now and then, but when it's the only thing on three televisions for six hours over at all of your friends' houses it gets to be a problem. I think I tried using the headphones for online interaction exactly once before my ears blistered and fell off my head.

Well in the case of the NHL series, they seem to be changing things every year now with control styles and everything. Plus I don't mind paying the money once a year because I am a hockey fan.

Funny thing, NHL series from EA is consistently winning best of sports games awards & last year when 09 came out, the stores couldn't keep it in stock; they told us 'Keep them in the new release section, these things are like hotcakes!!!!' Razz Dunno what those hockey guys are doing, but man.....they're doing something off the wall to keep the boys coming to the yard! Maybe its 2010's 1st person POV during the fights Razz

Halo and Final Fantasy, though they're not bad games by any means, imo.

Maybe not bad (I personally like neither) but overrated for sure.

I love Final Fantasy, but I agree it's over rated.

Yeah.. Halo and Gears of war is way overrated..
What about Left 4 dead? hated the fact that if you were a monster, the cpu's would be able to shoot you down and kill you with one shot from a mile away.

Sounds about right, as for 2010 it's basically a whole new game (just like 09 was) and so I may rebuy a 360 just for this game. No jokes.

As for POV fights, he fighting has never been great and I dread this lol.

I wouldn't call that as being overrated. Unbalanced, maybe.

Yeah it was rather unbalanced but I think it deserves all the hype it got.

That game was overhyped not over rated. Because once people got it they realized how bad it was.

Well, whether you like them or not has nothing to do with being overrated.

Over rated is a term used by people when the minority think less of a game then the Majority so my stance on Mario makes it Over rated in my Humble opinion

No, overrated is when people say something is better than it actually is, or give it more praise than it deserves. You not liking a game others do doesn't make it overrated.

As I said, something being overrated is not defined by whether you like it or not, or else every game in existance could be classified as overrated. Also, I go back to my point that Sunshine isn't overrated pretty much because I don't see it getting ANY PRAISE AT ALL. Thus, underrated.
