    I absolutely hate you. Square Enix hater.

    I would say, a lot. But especially Defense of the Ancients and an annoying game called Special Force.

    just a little side note to this that i thought about. Most of us grew up with red/blue, and though nintendo may be milking the god out of pokemon, all the little people who are our age when we were little and had red/blue probably like the 3rd n 4th gens a lot just because its whats more available to them

    And whatnot asia soft games. Most other Singapore "gamers" have bad taste. Asiasoft games? PSP >>>>.....>>>> DS? Enough proof.

    And of course TWEWY. Could never understand the innovation of it.

    i would say that most square enix games are overhyped and overrated by fans, but not so much overrated by critics however. blame the all those stupid fanboys >:( however, you have to give it to the game developers at square (not so much enix in my opinion), they have been coming up with some of the most redefining innovations for RPGs over the past 2 decades... active battles, all the character customizing systems and what not.

    ff7 was revolutionary for its time... maybe not the kind of "this-deserves-20-out-of-a-possible-10" that fans would claim, but its gets at least a 9/10 from me!

    I could never get into a Final Fantasy game. Too much BS IMO. Although on the other hand, I played Chrono Trigger in 1995 and thought it to be one of a kind both story wise and game play. It still ranks top 5 personal favorites to this day.

    Gayblo (halo) obviously is grossly over rated. Its not even funny anymore how over rated it is. My local car board has a video game section and they have a thread dedicated to it. They get all pumped to play. Pump themselves up for 3 days straight. Play for 2 hours, dont touch it again for 3 months. It is some crazy cycle they go through.

    I wouldnt say GTA is over rated, but it is what it is. Killing, stealing, robbing, having sex with hookers, yada yada yada. Same thing, new "story".

    Saying Metriod is over rated is like saying bacon isnt a good breakfast food IMO.

    Madworld, very repetitive after one level and not "hardcore" at all. a score based deathmatch? what about that makes sense?

    Though i disagree with you on Super Metroid ill fight to the death for your right to say it. I feel it was the definitive 2d metroid and as Law said there are better done hacks for it too.

    N+, halo, new pokeman games




    I don't think FFVII is too overrated, it is a bit special. same for WEWY.

    For all you guys that are standing up for games that some people think are overated, its only an opinion and you all look like fanboyz.

    EDIT: Sephi, i though halo was like god to you, cause i remember you flaming me on irc for thinking it was overated.

    GTA IV is definately overrated! I was so bored halfway through because the missions were boring, and i had tried so many things in the city. not a bad game. Just not a 10/10 in my eyes.

    Halo isn't overrated. Well maybe the first was. Okay it was released YEARS ago... But Halo 3 is so damn fun. I don't get that people can play it for 3 days straight though. I love playing it every once in a while with my friends, and the Campaign is so awesome (short though...)

    WoW is overrated! I don't get what's so damn good about it. I can only play it a month, and then i unsubscribe. That game has stolen so many hours of my life, and everytime i play it, i feel i should be doing something else.
    What really bugs me about it is how simple the main gameplay aspects are. Combat is so damn boring, and the enviroments are way too repetitive!

    If anyone says anything, they are labeled fanboys. Welcome to the internet. [​IMG]

    I will agree. Its not a bad game. Some of the missions are crazy and very annoying especially when a random car or person takes you out or pushes you into a cop. That got old real quick. It was decent, but definatly not GOTY like many publications gave it. MGS4 was way better IMO and it only got 2 GOTY nods.

    There's a difference between something that people overrate but are actually bad, and the ones that people await for and hype for an stuff, and actually turn out to be good. I mean, imagine what everyone would say if someone say Scribblenauts is overrated just because people are hyping. As you can see, big difference.

    FF's are extremely good.
    Rock Band and GH are very good.
    WoW is worth it.
    GTA is... well, I'll almost agree with you since I hate the series.
    Why the hell is the Wii there?
    Runescape is utter crap.
    The apple objects are reliable, hi-tech and awesome.
    Moon is dependent on your type. And it's not really that popular.
    Call of Duty is okay.
    HALO is actually good, except not as good as what people expected.
    MGS is pretty good.
    Maple Story is, lousy. (I assume it's the annoying PC game)

    You should put up your anti-flame shields since a lot will flame you and your'e lucky I'm not going to flame you since I am in a really good mood because of a certain unreleased homebrew I just found out about.
