The only Elder Scrolls game that deserves a spot on an 'overrated' list is Morrowind, and will always be Morrowind.

It's not that great. :p

The only one I can agree with is GTA, and even then only specifically only 4. No way it should have gotten the scores it did... (Chinatown Wars on the other hand was great fun)

The rest of them pretty much deserve their scores, and games like Sonic games & FF don't always get high scores anyway, and as far as I remember the first Assassins Creed didn't go over so hot either, so it's hard to call them overrated.

I somewhat agree with Halo as well, I've never quite rated Bungie as that great of a studio, but 343i seem to have done a much better job on Halo 4 (possibly helped somewhat by a little Metroid vibe I get off watching some of the footage).

This whole article is basically clickbait.

Indeed it is. (Y) When it comes to clickbait though, this list is nothing compared to this and this.

It is a question of taste.

Nothing else to add.

I did find Assassin Creed pretty repetitive and not very inovative.

:/ :s :wacko: :rofl: :|

Did you even play those games that you claim are "Overrated"?. Some of the Final Fantasy games "could be" overrated. FFVII definitely wasn't overrated. I would know as i played it over and over and over. After FFX i got bored of the rest of the series. i wanted to retire being an ff gamer after that. The music is awesome(FFVII-FFX)

That list is pure opinion. You cannot say a game is overhyped, because somewhere out there, somebody will feel that the game lives up to the hype. Saying a game is over-hyped is opinion only. The Article should be "10 Games I feel are overhyped in my opinion"

That article lost credibility when he decided to put Skyrim on it.

I like Assassins Creed games but the game is a bit repetitive. AC 2 is the best because of the improvements but the fighting in AC 2 through Revelations is weak because the enemies have indicators over their heads when they were going to attack. AC 3 doesnt look that diffrent so I will wait because Revelations let me down.

Very silly article just trying to attract page impressions. Of course you can nitpick at all these games but they're all pretty bloody good.


Pretty much.

ACII improved a lot on the first. ACII is one of my fav sequels.

lol. The OP didn't write the article, simply posted it. :rofl:
