    List Your Overrated Games Here and why:

    Gears of War - Good but quickly gets boring.
    Bioshock - Guns are uninteresting and ai is bad. but looks great at least!
    Halo 3 - halo 1 was good story, new concept. 2 and 3 may be good, but not as great as they hyped up to be!
    WOW - come on guys! spells! clicking a mouse button. hours and hours of the same thing!

    Yeah, Bioshock was a pretty damn average game. As was Halo 3, and Gears of War.

    Doom 3.

    Oh, and Half-Life 2. Sorry, you make us wait that long and produce that shit, I'm surprised there wasn't more bad responses to it. It looked good, sure, but it was boring as hell.

    i agree GTA4, everyone made it out to be the greatest game ever! its a good game, don't get me wrong, but its no Gran Turismo!

    assassin's was good on the PC though, fun, but yeah way way too easy!

    Halo 3 - Extremely overrated game that is average at best, and even worse to PC gamers.
    Command and Conquer 3 - Never got into it at all.
    Bioshock - Cool idea, good background and theme, very average gameplay.

    WoW isn't overrated. The game can't even be given a logical rating out of 10. You get out of it what you put into it. Unfortunately for me that was a good 2 years of my life, but it was a great experience.

    Pretty much how I see it. GTA4 was fantastic, a credit to the series. But just wasn't the see and and be all it was made out to be. Personally I still prefer Vice City.

    The Creed has a great storyline, the end really screwed with my mind, but so so repetitive gameplay.

    Yeah I loved fear for the first few hours - then it just turned into small groups of enemies every few corners.

    HA. I repeat...HA - Gran Turismo.

    see i played with lights off and headphones on loud at night. really got into it. great fun.

    command and conquer 3 was a great game, considering i don't usually like any RTS games apart from Red Alert (the original). but C&C3 was heaps of fun. loved the futuristic theme, and not waaaay too many units and options like other rts games tend to have. good for FPS and Racing player like myself


    crysis was overhyped, but then everyone said it was terrible, so when i played it i was expecting the worst game with epic graphics, and i got a decent game with heaps fun gameplay. but sucks fighting the aliens, kinda boring

    Assassin's Creed. Got too repetitive.
    Definitely F.E.A.R too.
    Of course Doom III. :)

    - Gran Turismo: Funny how "The ultimate driving Simulator" isn't actually so ultimate despite the size of its budget and amount of endorsements.

    - Metal Gear Solid: Again, maybe I missed something here. This game seemed boring as batshit to me.

    Edit: Forgot to add Halo3. Wouldn't want to miss that one.

    So many Doom 3 suggestions. I'm replaying it at the moment, and I'm determined to finish it, even though I'm staggering play time for 30 minutes cause I get so bored! I just love how I get punished for picking up guns and PDAs by new monsters spawning.

    True, many of my friends are far from impressed with it.

    metal gear solid - agreed

    gran turismo - if you're really into cars, this is a fantastic game! selling 50 million copies doesn't lie! and really competitive skillful racing game for multi-player. but do hate how there is no damage for bouncing off walls. although the penalty system is good for cheaters now. makes the game a lot more challenging than GT4. :)
