    In terms of graphics sure, but in terms of everything else, no. To get from the SNES/genesis generation to N64/PS1 gen there was a lot of trial and error like I mentioned about Sega CD, 3D0, etc. It was a big leap when Sony and Nintendo got it right.


    Good point, I'm out.

    That's the same feeling I'm having.

    hey now, Tetris IS one of the best games of all time!

    And I read Joseph Campell's work, it's why wrote this.

    I mean, of course Ocarina of Time is not the first to be like that, but that's not really the point in the end.

    I'd have to say Outfoxies for me. It's just a game I could pick up and still play.

    Why? So I can agree? I thought it was fairly well known that the game was awful, despite a somewhat enjoyable multiplayer. I sold it for $20

    To be fair most of the Uncharted games are overrated, I think people like them because they are huge action romps.

    Uncharted 2 was good. How does being an action romp automatically make you overrated?

    That's not what he said. The games are basically playable movies, even though the playable parts in UC3 ruin the game.

    Pretty much, yeah. I didn't say it was bad, hell my playable movies I like include Mass Effect and a few Call of Duties.

    Uncharted however was always...well I am surprised it was so popular personally.

    I always found it funny that other games filled with nothing but giant setpieces and cutscenes are the ones people complain about, yet somehow Uncharted is the exception.

    It's a platformer with QTE fights, lol.

    The difference is that it's good. I like the characters, I like the somewhat ridiculous stories and the tongue-in-cheek comments. It doesn't hurt that it's a pretty seamless transition between those cutscenes and the gameplay.

    I don't have a hard-on for the series, but I'm pretty sure it deserves any good comments that it gets while not trying to ignore its shortcomings.

    I actually never liked Uncharted, first impression was dude raider, and I was never able to shake that

    same with the god of war and devil may cry games, I just couldn't get into that style of gameplay

    I can see where the appeal is, it just doesn't tickle my wedding vegetables

    Red Dead Redemption.................................



    That was to piss off Dan


    I guess when saying overrated I think we're really just answering what games everyone liked that we didn't. When I first saw the topic I was expecting a flood of COD answers and was surprised to see it barely mentioned. SKyrim I honestly don't think is overrated, I loved it but then again I barely played Oblivion so maybe that's why.

    For me Deus Ex Human Revolution, everyone here was praising it and when I got my hands on the game I couldn't get into it. That being said I was trying to get all the achievements while playing it and that can ruin a game (possibly deserving a second try).

    I agree that DXHR was mediocre.

    I like that bar fight scene in Uncharted 3 in the beginning... And that's it...

    I hope Uncharted will stay the way it. Any more game and it'll just be an embarrassment to be honest.
