Overrated -  Kingdom Hearts, anything Bethesda makes, Heavy Rain/Beyond: Two Souls, Assassin's Creed (all of them) and generic FPS/Sports games (CoD/Fifa and the like).

Underrated - Hitman series, Tales of series, Okami

 

Don't get me wrong, I love Bethesda's stuff even if they're crap as PS3 ports and I enjoyed Heavy Rain and Assassin's Creed but I think they get way more hype than they should.

However I will never understand the love kingdom Hearts gets, the controls are stiff and the camera is awful.

 

Totally agree on everything except the Heavy Rain part :P
I consider it to be one of the rare gems for PS3.

My title that I personally think is overrated is Call of Duty! Copy and paste every year...I used to play it a lot but now I hate it so much! lo

My title that I think is underrated is a JRPG called NIER... If any one on these forums has played it they'll know what I mean :) The story in that game is just amazing and it is so full of emotions!

See it's funny how even after you complete Uncharted 2, you go on to buy Uncharted 3. 

 

Also, 37/50 GTAV trophies clearly shows your HATE towards the game...

What does any of that even matter? I have games on my psn and 360 profile that I absolutely hated and still have half the trophies for.

Ohh... There's a lot of games I consider underrated... I'll just try picking one.

 

Overrated: Sports sims (Madden, FIFA, NHL, NFL...)

Underrated: Killer is Dead

 

Other underrated candidates: Anarchy Reigns, Bayonetta, Vanquish, Catherine.

funny how these threads derail quickly, people don't agree with each other, deal with it, it's opinion, there is no wrong or right ...

That's not the point. It's the fact that he said kind of dumb things like "Uncharted is basically COD in third-person", and "Is Journey even a game. It's awful" while putting the lowest rated games of all time as underrated. Might as well have added Aliens: Colonial Marines to the list of underrated games and that would be the icing on the cake. And it's obvious trolling by the way he said "metric system" and all that so you're all making a huge deal out of it lol.

 

Might as well add another one.

 

Overrated: GTA V. Don't get me wrong I love the game but it's far from 10/10.

 

Underrated: Dead Space 3. I love this game. It might be because I haven't played the other 2 yet.

I hate to act as the big guy because i'm still new here, but isn't the point of a forum to discuss, debate and argue? surely we must be able to discuss our opinions in that form.

Overrated: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Underrated: Max Payne 3.

I wouldn't call Spec Ops underrated. Brilliant meta narrative, best since MGS2, but the actual gameplay itself was less than exemplary tbh. I can agree on Sly Cooper, though. 

Call of Duty and GTA IV get as much hate as much as hey get love, really. 

 

Underrated: MGS2, since we're at it.

Overrated: MGS4 and MGS3. Incredibly.

I also thought Journey was incredibly overrated. Honestly I wouldn't rate it above a 5/10. Reviewers saying the game made them feel a wide range of emotions, and how great it is. Only thing I really liked about the game was how it looked.

The thing about video games isn't necessarily the actual interaction, rather how the interaction is used. Something like Heavy Rain/Beyond falls flat for me because it ignores the potential of video games to let out the frustrations of a movie director, David Cage. Journey uses it's simplistic gameplay to make you feel different things, along with brilliant atmosphere and design.
