I...don't even know what to say.
For me the story is what sets GTA so far from other games. But I don't know if it's me but when I start playing a GTA I get half way into it and start wishing I could just watch the cutscenes instead of doing the missions.


it just gets boring after 7 hours of gameplay.

then i just kill erryyone which is cool for awhile then that gets boring.

GTA4 is mad overrated. It was coll and all being the 1st on the next gen systems but It kinda failed to deliver. It got really boring fast and I was expecting them to bring back all of the elements that made San Andreas so great but they failed.

I don't even play the shit anymore but they have 12 million subscribers because it does everything right. I just burn through content too fast and I hate planning my life around raid times.

But yeah, all MMO's are boring, it's part of their charm I guess.

I think Nintendo as a whole is overrated. If Sega could have ran a better company I think the console market would be radically different now. Seriously, the dreamcast was a decade before it's time.

MGS4 was not the game I wanted, but to say it was overrated is a bit of a stretch. If you wanted MGS3 again, you're going to be disappointed, but once you put that aside, game was piff.

GTAIV is pretty much the same as the above. If you wanted SA again, you bummed, get over that and you'll see GTAIV was going for realism, and not in the Tamagatchi style where you have to feed your character and shit, but in look and feel. It was a good game, not a 10/10 game, but not far enough back to be labeled as overrated.

RE5, all the above works for this one too. It was a good game in its own right, but it was not what I wanted in an RE game.

As for overrated games, I'm gonna say RDR for sure. Lots of cool shit in this game, especially the hunting/skinning, but I never really felt compelled to finish the story missions outside of opening areas / unlocking weapons.

Agree 100%, Dreamcast had some classic fucking games.

MGS4 is a fucken movie with some parts where you actually play and the controls are so fucked even then. I even have the MGS4 edition PS3 coz I was fan of the previous games. Did anyone try to play it online? fuck it was terrible, the whole Konami registration and the cheating and everything. Everything about it sucks.

GTAIV I played way less than San Andreas, just not as addictive or epic as SA.

you and me both

overrated? hmm...

Dead Space ...finished it and wasn't satisfied. RE in space?
Madden? ...probably just not a football fan.
Halo 3 ...unanimous vote?
WoW ...in a top 200 guild = no social life. came to the conclusion that you kill shit to earn gear to kill more powerful shit and so on.
Virtua Fighter & Dead or Alive ...flame on

I though IV was far more epic. It was just so story oriented that I found no reason to play it again.
