    Games that for me do not justify the praise and hype and high review scores.....Deadly Premonition ( shockingly bad controls and dated gameplay) ,Call of Duty ( mindless chaotic mess and repetitive gameplay ) and any Retro games that are re-released 10 years after they first came out and still getting top scores! WHAT ARE YOUR GAMES THAT YOU PLAYED AND WERE TRULY SHOCKED AT THE HYPE AND REVIEW SCORES?

    Bioshock motherfucker. Shonky basic corridor shooter with added dullness and a veneer of snobbery.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    GTA 4
    Red Dead Redemption.

    No way in hell did these games deserve the scores they got.

    The Final Fantasy series. You would have thought after so many of the fucking things they would have made at least one that doesn't suck.

    also Resistance on ps3 I think was hyped up to be a Gears of War Challenger but was just dull.

    Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. They basically released two broken games yet won awards for it.

    That's the thing, even games like Zelda are getting high scores because of a fondness for the series. Yet surely most of the Zelda games are pretty much the same game repackaged. For that they should be marked down.

    Im guessing fallout 3 and vegas
  • Deleted user 12 July 2011 11:07:41
    The original two Fallouts were pretty broken, to be fair, but they were still stunning games.

    3 and NV can go do one though.

    Fable. My fucking god Fable. First one was half decent though at the time.

    Yakuza, yes it is a game involving the Japanese mafia, it also fucking sucks as a game though.

    Half Life series. Good/great games but I think absence is definitely making the heart grow fonder in this one.

    Mario Galaxy, overbearing mess of colour and cutesy does not give a game charm any more than brown on grey speckled with blood graphics makes an FPS mature.

    Although the formula hasn't changed much in 13 years, if they're consistently being rated quite highly, then they're doing something right. Clearly the repackaging isn't doing the series the kind of harm that it would to other gaming series so it must be pretty good.

    I dont own COD just played a cousins copy of the game ,but no doubt about it, this is the most overappreciated game of the century. Most people who play it don't have experience of any other game so have nothing better to compare to.

    GTA IV I have played, was disappointed with this game. Really missed being able to unlock weapons by collecting items such as in GTA 3. Also thought the game was repetitive and the shooting a bit clunky. Wasn't impressed with it.

    Fable 2, not as good as the first one. Don't believe by making the game more accessible (so piss easy a hamster could play it) does it any favours. I really enjoyed the first one but unfortunately cos I was so let down by the 2nd I didn't get the 3rd game as molyneux implied it was going to be even more accessible. Wish he would release another black and White like the original.

    Halo. I keep trying them, I'm still yet to finish one. I'm now 0 from 4. Don't get it.

    Ah, ok.

    As a Fallout fan, I was slightly disappointed by 3 and New Vegas. Felt the same about Oblivion.

    Actually, I'll add Oblivion to Half Life 2 as my nominations for the topic. I do not understand the love for them at all.

    The Final Fantasy game formula:

    Walk a bit, random battle ensues. Repeat x 1,000,000,000.
