Agreed with Halo. The SP campaign is pure crap.

so far as my opinion goes some Final Fantasy games are VERY underrated, whereas Halo is VERY over rated. The single player is only so-so, and i do not like multiplayer FPS games :p

WAIT A MINUTE, this guy wasn't even BORN when the original Sonic The Hedgehog game came out? This basically means that he wasn't even old enough to play ANY of the original sonic games (Sonic 1 (1991), Sonic 2 (1992), Sonic 3 (1994), Sonic and Knuckles (1994)). The whole part of the classic franchise passed him by when it was in it's golden era. Granted I wasn't old enough to play Sonic 1 when it first came out, but I remember buying Sonic 2 when it was released, and for their time, they were fantastic games (I'd argue they're still great games to this day).
This whole article is basically clickbait.

Glad i didn't read it, getting tired of empties and void articles made just for the ads. And yes, that guy is an ass; I've bought all the first four Sonic's games and to this day I've had very good memories of sunny afternoons playing with my friends.

The only game that was REALLY overrated in that list is Final Fantasy VII, because none of the others received such attention and in my opinion were by far better games.

Battlefield 3 isn't on the list, shame.

Wash your mouth out with battery acid sir.

Bioshock should be number one.

Call of duty 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and battlefield.

Halo series, final fantasy series and grand theft auto series are amongst the best games I've ever played, so definitely wouldn't consider them overrated!

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).

I say this, and I just find out some of the designers from Retro are now working at 343i, which would probably explain that :p

The fact that Goldeneye - a game that basically WAS the FPS at the time, the game that warranted a remake because enough people just wanted to play it some more, the game that for a while became the benchmark that other games were measured against... It just invalidates the whole list.

Plus, I don't think the Guitar Hero / Rockband games are overrated at all FOR WHAT THEY ARE. Fun, party, disposable nonsense.

GTA? Yes, let's just ignore its iconic reinvention of the drive/shoot genre.

Pah, article just looking for clicks.

I want to punch people who like Halo, but then I would probably be in jail.

Seriously though, do people actually say that?

Actually, I agree with all of these except Skyrim. (Even though Morrowind is still the best, Skyrim is awesome.)
I am also thinking a lot of you didn't read the article. Some of them he is talking about one specific game, or one facet of a game, some he is talking about the franchise of a certain game, and for instance, Final Fantasy, he said anything after IX has been overrated. Read the article....

I love Assassin's Creed games. But let us be honest... The first one did suck. The story was great, but the gameplay was mind numbing. You had to force yourself to do the same exact thing, over and over, to get the game done. All the Assassin's Creed games after the first one have been amazing. It was a great starting point, yes, but it was still incredibly repetitive and annoying.

He also hit it spot on with Final Fantasy.. The last good one was IX, hands down. Anything after that has mostly sucked.
