Borderlands fails both as an RPG and as a shooter and is the symbol of overrated mediocrity. The very fact that it was nominated for "Best RPG of...." awards is a fucking travesty.

@Andorski: i'll agree except for hockey.. OH! i know.
 
 
The Winter Olympics is stupid, and they could save millions of dollars by simply holding a giant world hockey tournament every 4 years.

Okami is vastly overrated. Kept waiting for the moment the game would become fun, but it didn't happen.

 4. Metal Gear Solid was a revolutionary masterpiece - 2, 3 and 4 were merely over-rated, over written sequels.
 7. Graphic technology will never hold a candle to artistic style. 
Hmm. Sort of agree on 4, but I thought 3 was really superb. Didn't have much of what made 2 and 4 so overblown. It was more personal. Tighter. Really good game.
Couldn't agree more on 7, however. You're absolutely correct. I'm much more impressed by  an amazingly artistic game than one that's "realistic". Art direction matters soooo much more. Which brings me back to Okami. At least it was a beautiful game. Just didn't like the actual game.

1- Hockey >>> Football
2-SF is the only fighting game... ALL others are cheap imitators
3-the original Halo was the best the series could offer
4-MGS series plot made perfect sense if paid attention
5-I want more cool cutscenes in my games

GTA is one of the worst things to happen to the gaming industry.  
 
Case in point: Jak and Daxter 1 was an amazing game, Jak and Daxter 2 was me traversing through a city doing nothing most of the time and changed it from a gorgeous sunny game to a dark city. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was amazing and charming, then Warrior Within had to add baditude thanks to GTA. 
 
Too many games going "edgy" and adding sand box for no reason. Thanks GTA for ruining other games.

i guess, but i dont think it's necessarily country bias. every time i see Soccer all i can think is "man.. this is just like hockey except WAY slower paced and less violent. thus less awesome."

This is always intriguing to me. What about WW do you like better than OoT? Which did you play first?
#85 Edited by Geno (6477 posts) -

Half Life 2 was mediocre, so was Fallout 3 (but Fallout was slightly better).
#86 Posted by Teptom (2047 posts) -
@amarriner: I played Ocarina of Time first and I played it a lot. I love the game, but there's just something about Wind Waker...I'm always a sucker for art styles like that and, at the time, I really enjoyed the sailing and sea exploration. Plus, you stab Ganon through the head, the head.
#87 Edited by amarriner (142 posts) -
@Shini4444: Yeah that's cool. The style of WW is definitely nice and sure the stabbing was fun. Dunno I guess even despite its larger world it felt like a smaller game to me. And the sailing for me was like stabbing myself in the eyes with shards of broken glass. I didn't like it is what I mean to say. :) Anyhow, thanks for the response. As I mentioned I'm always interesting in people's opinions on those games for some reason.
 
Nice avatar, btw. Zack & Wiki was tons of fun.

*The cell shaded Zelda games are all fugly
*Generic, medieval, sword and sorcery fantasy is incredibly boring
*2D > 3D
*PC > console
*Rhythm games are the worst genre
*Adventure games are awesome
*Games should be more linear than open ended
*Artistic graphics > technical graphics
*Mario games need to stop, infact they should've stopped many, many years ago
*Single player > multiplayer
*Games generally used to be better than they are now
*Grim Fandango has the most interesting premise for a video game
*There should be more Turn Based Strategy games
*The huge obsession with DLC is stupid.
*World of Goo...more like World of Poo

Too Human is an awesome game with a wicked and constantly upgrading loot system. 
The Last Remnant's battle system is extremely intense and puts me on the edge of my seat. The music in the game is also amazing. 
Lost Odyssey is the greatest JRPG since Final Fantasy 6.  
Folklore is a hybrid of Pokemon and Silent Hill.  
Wind Waker is the best Zelda (Someone said this above but I don't know if they meant of all the franchise or just better than OoT) 
Mass Effect is the greatest game ever created (Not sure about where ME2 fits in. It might have taken the title though. Not sure. Need to give it some time.) 
The Darkness is the best FPS on current generation consoles. 
Perfect Dark is the best FPS ever made, closely followed by Halo 1. 
Dead or Alive's counter system makes it the best fighting game franchise. 
BlazBlue is better than SF4. 
 
Hmmm I had to dig really hard for some of these :P

#97 Posted by Andorski (5179 posts) -

Perfect Dark and Goldeneye are good only when compared to other console FPS games at that time.  PC FPS games during the same period trounces both of those titles.

...and Lost is even worse. It should've stayed a three season affair instead of pumping it full of useless filler to stretch it out.
