    Final Fantasy 7 for me. I just never really enjoyed it. Lots of pre-rendered graphics, sloppy polygon characters, long unskippable FMV, lots of long pointless spell animations that you had to watch over and over. The story wasn't bad but it just didn't have a FF feel for me. I did enjoy FF9 though.

    Mine is final fantasy series (but mostly VII, VIII, X, X-2) of all the fanboism in a game the final fantasy series has a cesspool of emo, androgynous, pocket book love (ff8) fans you ever see in a series...

    I for one love the final fantasy series but I hate the hard core fans lining-up in this game.. I stop playing and caring in this game since 9. I played X, X-2 and XII but didn't finished it.

    I love SE for squeezing the Final fantasy series to it's remains in rehashes, merchandise and prequel stories and from what I remember in gametrailer's retrospective about Final Fantasy is that every game that has a Final Fantasy makes more money.

    I would like to say that sephiroth isn't the most badass character in the FF series KEFKA is... why? because the fact that he wears funny, he isn't emo and wants to see his mother he's just menially insane...

    Pretty sure something similar to this has been done in the past but my vote stays the same: Halo (1,2, & 3). Hands down the most overrated games ever.

    While Halo is vastly overrated, I still don't see the huge to-do with the Smash Bros. Series. I've played each and every one of them and haven't found any of them to be the greatest thing ever like many think.

    Final Fantasy series (Booooring, long games) and Phoenix Wright series (They're OK, but not as good as most people say...).

    I'll have to disagree with that.
    If Brawl is anywhere close to as good as Melee was (I'm sure its better) then all the hype is well deserved.
    Have you even played a good multiplayer match with friends [​IMG]

    Final Fantasy is a good series but the later releases get so much hype its ridiculous. Halo 3 was somewhat overrated too. It brought nothing new to the game.

    Halo, because its just another FPS, i'd much rather go play Half-life or Counter-Strike.

    Also i can understand people saying Brawl is overrated, though after playing it for a good solid 10+ hours its defiantly a step in the right direction for the franchise.
    Also Brawl did something halo didn't, its created something that really hadn't been done before, a four player platform fighter built on excellent mechanics and a simple yet balanced system. I'd rate Brawl best offline multiplayer hands down. with a group of 4+ you can play this game for ages and not get bored, cycling through characters to find your preferred one is one of the best parts of the game.

    I've played them all. The first smash on n64 was the most entertaining one. Probably because i was kid back then.

    Finished singleplayer in brawl and played multiplayer few days and then i got bored with it. It's just melee with few more characters, items and maps. Hell even the graphics are almost the same. Also it doesn't use any of wii's "uniques" abilities. Which is a good thing i believe, but that just makes it a gamecube game.

    I can easily see that childrens can play that game for months, maybe even years over and over again. I don't see it as entertaining and fun for "older" people. Atleast not in a long term.
    No offence, just my opinion.

    Don't know if they were good matches, but i've played with 4 player. [​IMG]
    Mostly duels though, because i like them more. Yea there's not many who likes 2 player matches more than 4 player matches.

    On topic:
    I'll add that ff7 is overrated. But the whole series is not imo.

    All the yearly updated EA Sports games. I don't understand the whole thing. They release these nearly identical games every year and people buy them [​IMG]

    In comparison to this shit every other game in the poll is underrated...
