    Post what you think are the most overrated titles/series.

    1) Chrono Trigger: I've been playing it recently and I just find it to be boring and the combat to be unorganized and sloppy
    2) Megaman: Anything past the originals. It seems like it has become less about gameplay and more about tagging the name "Megaman" along with some anime-stuffed box art so that the fanboys will gobble it up.
    3) Metroid: I thought the GBA titles were pretty good, but the 3D games are mediocore and Super Metroid ain't all that great.
    4) TWEWY: It's good, don't get me wrong, but definately not even close to the best RPG game ever made.

    The only good metroid was snes super metroid, I despise the 3d metroid they make my eyes hurt, I'll try to play the lastest one for the wii, when i get a chance. Same goes for the 3d castlevania games, they make me want to vomit, they should have did a lot better job. If they cant get it right we have to, some fan based shit should emerge sooner or later.

    I also think smash brothers brawls is overated too.

    Hell.
    First person to say the Mother series gets a beating! /offtopic
    I'd have to say all the Pokemon games. They're good, but they're all practically the same game, and they always have two versions that are exactly the same game with really insignificant changes.

    I never really enjoyed Metroid games, either.

    Most of the newer Final Fantasy games, including Final Fantasy 7. The older ones were good for their time, I just don't see what's so good about the newer ones.

    And Super Metroid was awesome!

    Castlevania, the old ones were the best, the ones on N64 were good, the GBA ones were alright, the DS ones are ok, and the PS2 ones just suck.

    Most people would say the N64 ones were the worst, though I liked them also. I do find the DS ones better. The fighting game for the Wii... I just won't get into that one.

    3D Zelda games get on my nerves. I've always been more partial to GBA Zelda games.

    I don't exactly hate Mario Kart Double Dash, but I really disliked the game when it was getting more appraise than F-Zero GX. That really got on my nerves.

    Halo - it's probably the most boring, half assed and mediocre shooter ever created. Any game that provides aim assisting because of shitty dual analog design is instantly garbage as it takes away from the skill of the game. Keyboard + mouse FPS's FTW!

    God of War - honestly, I don't understand what is so great about that franchise, it's lame button mashing, to me it's about as shitty as Prince of Persia and Assassins Creed

    Wii Sports - what a bunch of simplistic bollocks, Nintendo seriously needs to be kicked in the bag for that shit, it's just atrocious

    WarCraft 3 - I own WarCraft 3 and have played through it a few times, former WoW player as well and I found that more enjoyable on so many levels. Yes, the WarCraft series has an excellent storyline, but WC3 is just completely dumb, the voice acting and the way the story is presented is just garbage, the characters lack all the badass attitudes and emotions that you see playing through WoW, especially in the Lich King expansion where the cinematics are actually cool and worth watching.

    Like, here?
    Most all the FF games... But square does make nice character designs, I have to give them that.
    I prefer Tales game to FF games...


    Chrono Trigger as well. That or the DS release was overhyped.
