Top 5 Overrated Games

This list compiles games that are highly praised and well regarded in many gaming communities that I don't share the same opinions for.

Let me get this straight before I go into this list, the games on this list are NOT bad games. Each game is enjoyable in its own right but I just don't see myself putting these games up on a high pedestal - at least anytime soon.

List items

  • I think I speak for everyone saying that this game should have kicked the bucket long ago.

    GTA V is a decent sequel to GTA IV, but that's it. This game doesn't improve upon anything set by the previous GTA, and has an obnoxious fanbase dedicated to the online that hasn't faultered for 9 whole years. The campaign is unique but has got under my skin in recent years, and the licensed music in-game is enough to make me want to commit murder. To quote the film the Lorax, "Let it die"

  • I seriously don't understand the high praise for this game. Sure it's only slightly better than the first Assassin's Creed in terms of gameplay, but beyond that everything else is nearly identical to what was shown previously.

  • Alright, I know what you're thinking - but before you say anything, you can shoot and bury me alive later.

    While I can admit Fallout: New Vegas is better than the previous game in terms of story and writing, the rest of the game is near identical to Fallout 3 - everything from gameplay to graphics. I understand that this game was rushed but that can't really excuse the vast amount of bugs and glitches when this game released on launch day - some glitches can even be encountered to this day.

  • What I thought was a game that went under the radar is suprisingly well loved by fans of the series; Far Cry 2 may have been a good tech demo to show examples of fire and wind dynamics, but everything else shows a broken, buggy mess marred with poor voice acting and some of the most brain dead AI I've encountered in a first-person shooter since Brink.

  • Oh yes, I'm going there. I'm not holding back on this one.

    This game might have a good amount of interaction to it, but I don't see much more than that within the 18 hours of the game I've played to this point. Geralt is stiff and uninteresting (more so than Ezio), and the combat makes the game much easier than it should have been. There are some things I enjoy about this game, such as the amazing soundtrack, detailed visuals and the concept of playing as a monster hunter sounds great but the execution is somewhat problematic to me. Trust me, I wanted to enjoy this game. Maybe one day I'll come back to it, but I'm not sure when.
