Overhated Video Games:
oh boy here come the generic military FPS games. They don't get enough hate IMO (if enough people hated htem, they'd stop making them, and we'd get some new ideas, for once!)
War ALWAYS changes. Man does not.
Never played more than a demo of one of those, MW 2
. Ok, SAS teams are a minimum of four, not two, but four man teams. They never attack in the daylight unless there is no other fricking option. And if you end up having to fight several million Russians and kill the bastards, you get some chippy Scottish bastard slagging you off for breaking cover. Fuck that. I am the only chippy Scottish bastard allowed to give me a slagging off.

Refer to my earlier posts regarding why "generic military shooters" don't really deserve so much hate.
And, IMO, Medal of Honor
was better if only because it treats its characters and their deaths
a bit better.
My fetish is the ending to Killer7
They're not really realistic in anyway, rather really long war movies. Really dumb and over the top but a fun ride nonetheless.

I think its time to drop Mass Effect 3 here. Sure, endings are flawed, but the rest of the game is very enjoyable and a worthy successor to the franchise. It doesn't deserve all the hate and the 3.3 metacritic user score. In fact a few days ago it was on 2.3 which is ridiculously low.
Instead, I have learned a horrible truth of existence...some stories have no meaning.
ShizuEris = adorable~
^ It's just hate train really...some of the gripes about the game is legitimate, but not directly at the gameplay (Day 1 DLC and those kind of stuff), some are gamplay-related (I didn't see much though), others are just idiotic hate joining the stupid club...

As a genre, Myst
-type puzzle games are long-time targets of hatred among gamers who don't care for them
. Among many people who like their games with more fighting & shooting, the animus is so intense that even trying to develop one is asking for a flaming. Maybe that's why fewer of them are being made these days, or maybe the demand has just shrunk; I don't know.

Street Fighter X Tekken
you know, I'll just say it now, any Capcom game past Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.
It's basically becoming the new Sonic. And this is coming from a long time Sonic fan...
Sonic 4. The game has its flaws, but wow. The hate for it it ridiculous.
Far Cry 2 was mentioned???
That One Troper Guy
. I have no idea why every major game reviews outlet now has it in for that game, but if you ask me it's still just as good as it was in '99. Luckily most mainstream gamers still tend to like it.

I think every
Sonic game after Sonic the Hedgehog CD
is overhated except for Sonic Shuffle
and a few other old spinoffs because nobody remembers them. I don't really mind how Sonic the Hedgehog 4
has physics different from the days of old, and Sonic Adventure
is too much fun for me to hate.

Some are less overhated than others.
Some of the hate for Sonic: NOW LOADING is actually pretty justified.
and Sonic Generations

Same question to any Sonic game on the GBA and DS.
Friendships are defined by boundaries; close friendships are defined by undefined boundaries. —Malchus
...You're honest questioning some Sonic games being hated? We're part of a Broken Base
, after all.
Das kann doch nicht sein!
Doom 3. Sure, it's very much unlike it's predecessors and not as good as them (then again, I think no other FPS is), but still it's a lot of fun and, in my opinion, one of the last great pure shooter games.
Also, while I can understand that people hate it, I like the flashlight-switching thing. I never had much of a problem with it, it doesn't take too long to switch to the weapon and I find that it makes things more intense. It makes one a bit (really only a bit) more vulnerable in a rather fun way.
People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.
Come to think of it, I haven't read one RUINED FOREVAR
post about Sonic Colors
or Sonic Generations
, so those, surprisingly, are not overhated. As for the DS titles, I hear people mocking Sonic Rush
it by saying, "Press right and hold Y to win!", but that's really more of a vocal minority*
. I haven't read people hating on the Sonic Advance
trilogy, so that one's not overhated either. I guess the fact that a few people didn't think that Sonic 3 & Knuckles
was the best thing ever does not mean the game is overhated… Huh. So I guess only four or five games in the series are actually overhated.

Bitter person in the shadows....
The only outright negative review for Sonic Generations
I've seen was the godawful Game Informer one. Everywhere else I've seen people left and right (even those that have avoided the recent Sonic games) say it's a great game.
To me Star Fox Adventures
gets picked on too much. Yes this isn't a real Star Fox
game and it's a Zelda clone, but considering all the crap that went on in development,
it's actually a fun game and a swan song to Rare's glory days with Nintendo (I actually continued to support Rare until their godly obsession with Kinect.)

Nobody better lay a Butterfinger on my 3DS!
My girlfriend who largely hates the series even the entries that people say were good is quite surprised by Generations in that it's...good.
Which says something about it.
She's never liked Sonic. And hates most of it. AND YET.
As for the topic.
The 64 Castlevanias. They're charming in their own sort of way.

lol, my friend is the same way. He hated Sonic because some guy in middle school wouldn't shut up about it. Then, I handed him my Sonic Mega Collection, and, well, the rest is history (sort of). Now he's playing the games in story order (lol) until he gets Generations!
Arguably, you can blame The Angry Video Game Nerd
My fetish is the ending to Killer7
Cawadoody seems pretty OK from what I've seen of it.
Duke Nukem Forever
- Ignoring the sexism and other "Dude, Not Funny!
" moments, this game to me wasn't as bad as many people said.
2 - AKA "the worst Serious Sam game ever, the game that ruined the series." Personally it was my favorite one ever.
V - Pretty much every complaint I've seen about this game has to do with the lack of single-player content. I'm not gonna try to argue against it, but basically despite that I still like the game.
Call of Duty World At War
- Overhated when compared to Co D 4
and the more recent games, and the fact that it's, well, Co D
. I only played the multiplayer, but personally it seems to be the most balanced one compared to the others, especially the IW games. I still wish there was no Juggernaut or Second Chance, but other than that I don't feel like any gun or perk/s is overpowered. Not even the MP 40
With Mod Hat On
Hey, folks. I missed this thread before but, thanks to getting bumped up to the top, I'm going to call it quits as it violates our stealth complaining rules. It's just a list of "games people hate that you liked", which is specifically against the pinned rules for this forum. If you want to discuss individual games, do it in their respective threads. Thanks.
