From the dawn of time, certain things have been overrated -- beef, ambititon, confidence, the sun. The sun is a great example. Whenever it's not sunny, people are always clamoring for the sun. But you know what? The sun gives you cancer. You know that if i gave people cancer, no one would like me. Sheesh, I DON'T give people cancer and still no one likes me. But the sun gets a free pass. Why? 'Cause people are stupid. Like the girfriend who clings to guy that beats her, people love the sun when it's just a jerk.
The Video Gaming community is no different. Every year certain games are fawned over while more deserving games are passed over. In the nearly one year post e3 2004, many such games have been released.
Half Life 2
Three first person shooters lapped up by the masses. I won't even get in to how terrible the first person perspective is. You don't know what boredom truly is until you are forced to play a round of Halo 2. Easily my worst gaming experience of the year, and I was forced to play the Fight Night game, too.
God of War - The newly overrated flavour of the DUM. Here's an idea, Make a game with ancient grecian elements that doesn't suck.
Riddick - Vin Diesel.
Metroid Prime 2 - As if the first did not suck enough, we get a second and with multilayer death match. HAYE GUSY THIS AINT NO FPS, ITS UN FPA!!!`11
Resident Evil 4 - Capbomb. Survival, maybe. Horror sucks. This series needed to die before it ever began. Thanks for ruining games, capcom. Now get back to ruining Mega man with the X series!
Gran Turismo 4 - Whee car drivin'!! Just go sit by the road 'neck. Hopefully you'll get run over. Honourable mention goes to all the other stupid car drivin' games; like driv3r, burnouts 3, S
TDRS, NSFU2, baggy pants and hat turned sideways 5.
Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas - No commentary needed. The dumest of the dum. It sucks so much, that my brother bought a PS2 solely for it. And he has poor taste.(His GF is blonde)
Metal Gear Solid 3: - Snake Eater Eats the big snake. The world would be a better place if Kojima had never been born. Stealth in video games is stupid. it nearly ruined Wind Waker. Also in this category, howevermany Splinter cell games released in the past 12 months
Super Mario 64 DS - The game that ruined Mario brought to the small screen. It still sucks today as much as ever. But it has improved in its packaging because there are now mini-games on the card. The Bad news? You have to play through the rest of the game to unlock all of them. And no one should want to do that.
Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
Mortal Kombat: Deception
Every sports sim from Sega and EA and whoever else
I'm sure I missed some. let me know and I'll tell you if you are right.
