OMG. I'm starting a serious topic. =O

He's got his opinions. I'd just like to know why. =O

Here's one for me...

Soul Calibur: I just thought it was Soul Edge with souped-up graphics. Sure, it's a deep game but I'd still rather play Street Fighter II Turbo. =O

Final Fantasy 8 on up through the present. Squaresoft is still losing its touch with me.. FF6 was its best work, IMO. But ah well. People must like it, it's popular.

May I add DDR to the list.. okay, I shall. ^___^ *holds up trashcan lid to deflect projectiles*

Panzer Dragoon Saga.

So many people said it was the greatest and most amazing game ever (only RPG in the PD series). It is super rare and therefore insanely expensive, so if you haven't played it, chances are you never will. Although I was a mild fan of the other PDs (everyone should play Orta, I expect good things from it), I was really disappointed by this game. Every review I read said "this is the greatest RPG ever!!" and yet when I played it, it was decidedly not the greatest RPG ever. ^^

a lot of the expansions for The Sims. All they really accomplish is slowing down your system to molasses-mode.

Ha ha. I have Panzer Dragoon Saga.

Never finished it, though. But it IS good. Greatest RPG? Nah.

One more overrated game.

Mario Kart. More on 64, though.

me? o.o

well... first off.. I'm a she. ^^;

second...

Final Fantasy games are good, yes, but I don't think they're the end-all of RPGS, like so many people make them out to be. I didn't play FF7 until a good 2 years after it came out, because my friend FREAKED OUT when I told them I'd never played it. they all exploded and acted as if God himself was going to come and strike me down for not playing this game. o_O; and I wasn't that impressed. for it's time, I'm sure it was great, but personally... I just didn't like it all that much... clones and world domination. whee. *shrug* so after that, I played FF8, and hated it ~ I thought it the plot was really stupid, and didn't care for the battle system. FF9 just didn't interest me at all.. FF10 I really enjoyed, but it should have been longer, and they should have just given it a decent ending instead of a sequel.

so yeah. my $2. =P

OMG GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN HIVEMIND!
Over-rated games:
MGS2- Great soundtrack, horrid story, cookie cutter MGS.
MK Mythologies-Overhyped trash. Only redeemable quality was the bloopers.
Wild Arms 3- Boring, boring story, unrealistic characters. OK gameplay.
Any Final Fantasy after 6(except Tactics)- Do I REALLY have to say why? Let's [strike]play some games[/strike] watch some movies!
-_-
Metroid Prime - It's good, but...not THAT good.
Mortal Kombat 4- Good reviews all around, but it is THE glitchiest MK of all.
Street Fighter Alpha 3- Pales in comparison to Alpha 2.
Phantasy Star Online- YAY MULTIPLATFORM MADNESS = Resubscription issues! Gay.
Grand Theft Auto 3- -_-

yeah i was pissed at MGS2, i wanted to play as Snake..wtf was with Raiden?

and i didn't like FF 8, i thought it was rushed, the story was thrown together and changed every 5 secounds. "oh we all grew up in a orphanage but we can't remember becuase when we use GF's they drain our memory...WTF?!" The characters i felt were lame to.
