Oh boy, flameshield engaged.
1. Borderlands (1 & 2)
2. Skyrim
3. Fallout New Vegas
4. Far Cry 3

Also in response to gaiages, I'm a huge fan of the Kingdom Hearts series, and I f*cking hate Kingdom Hearts 1.

Crushing Flame walls engaged.

For me in no particular order,
1. Call of Duty past 4
2. Skyrim
... I can't really think of any others. Even then, those two are entirely preference based as I preferred Morrowind more than Skyrim, and I lost taste in the Call of Duty franchise, though understand that others like it and why.
I really enjoyed Kingdom Hearts 1 and did everything in it. I bought 2 when it had been out for a year or two, and never got past the first 2 hours.

My lack of experience with the whole series is why I stay hands off with it, and don't worry about how it's rated. It's really special to a certain age group, and I can't relate to their excitement for it, but I understand it.
1: Final Fantasy VII: I am a huge FF fan but this is FAR from the BEST GAME EVER. It has some major flaws but it is a fun game. I just hate the mindless fanboys/fangirls.
2: Call of Duty series: I have seen much better FPS in my life. Especially BO2 and MW3 are overrated as heck.
3: God of War series: First game was good but after that... The second was fun to play but repetitive and the third game was GoW in HD. Fun games but nowhere near the best hack 'n slash series. Also Castlevania LOI was BEFORE GOW so how are the PS2 Castlevanias GOW clones?
4: Castlevania 4 aka Super Castlevania: It is a GOOD game but not the best. The reason is the same reason why Egoraptor doesn't think Super Castlevania isn't the best. Because of the "multi-way" whip attack the use of subweapons become more or less unimportant.
5: New Super Mario Bros series: Fun games to play but why are the NSMB games looking like clones. Look at SMB, SMB2 (US version) SMB3. They are all different games. Then you got SMW and SMW2:YI which are also 2 completely different games. And most of the 3D Mario games doesn't play/look the same... so why the New Super Mario Bros games?

I just found this and felt like adjusting my list now that I've expanded my gaming library substantially and become far less of a stupid internet hipster teenage man guy. Also of note, at the time (I think probably maybe???), nobody would shut up about Far Cry 3 and my PC could barely play it, and what I could play felt really generic. Plus, I just wanted you guys to think I was cool man :(

Anyways, in no particular order.
5. Borderlands, yeah agreeing with SERIOUSLY's points on this one, it's just a genericy shooter where you shoot the same ten enemies. Plus, nobody shuts up, ever. Want to open a gate to go shoot some more guys or maybe get an incrementally better gun? WAIT A SEC PARTNER! WE HAVE TO INTRODUCE THIS QUIRKY VIDEOGAME CHARACTER AND YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO HIS "HILARIOUS" DIALOGUE WHILE CLAPTRAP MAKES ROBOT JOKE #13-6! I know the multiplayer can make it more enjoyable, but that's true about any crummy game. Pryzm the Dark Unicorn is a shit game, but trying to play it while goofing off with friends is fun, that doesn't make the game not-shit.

4.5 Minecraft. First of all, I love Minecraft. I've spent far too many hours goofting off with and making friends on my custom server and it was the first pc game I got really into (Runescape nonwithstanding), but it's so overblown at this point, I kinda-have to put it on here. Great game, crap fanbase and oh god the videos are in my sidebar go away someone send help my adress is 1511 Hor---

4. 2007 Runescape. Most of you probably won't understand the grievance here, but I gotta say it. 2007 Runescape was shit. A lot of people on the internet hate modern Runescape for being shit, which, to be fair, it is, but many of those same people have the hardest nostalgia boners I've ever seen. It's a baby's first MMO that nobody wants to admit was never really that engaging. Speaking as a previous ten year old who ran to play at the library every day when he didn't have a computer, it really just was never a very good game.

3. Bastion. Cool aesthetic, generic gameplay. Nothing kills a game for me like generic gameplay or pages of unskippable dialogue. I sorta liked Bastion, I certainly didn't hate it, but it was just a prettier version of the 2003 Bionicle™ browser game, and that one wasn't great either.

2. Braid. Braid is a pretentious platformer with floaty, generic gameplay elements. I don't know if the circlejerkinist' game is "cool to hate" or whatever if I'm still considered a massive hipster for hating it, but god dammit I just read a bunch of people praise it as a work of true art and it made me come revive an ancient thread. If you're going to spend years of your life designing a game that questions the tropes of platformers, maybe make the platforming feel ok, or like you've played a platformer before? Maybe? No? Ok. Doesn't help that the developer is a pretentious fanny bag of a man. I remember seeing him watching people actually have fun with his game (somehow) and he got all mopey and said "they just don't understand." WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE ARE ENJOYING YOUR GAME AND INTERPRETING IT THROUGH THEIR OWN METHODS JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY. Oh and my favorite quote of his that confirms my suspicions of Blow being a 13 year old philosopher. "‘One day I’m looking at my bank account and there’s not much money, and the next day there’s a large number in there and I’m rich. In both cases, it’s a fictional number on the computer screen, and the only reason that I’m rich is because somebody typed a number into my bank account.’”


1.5 Quick nod to Far Cry Blood Dragon, otherwise known as OVERUSED 80'S JOKES WITH NERF GUNS DUCKTAPED OVER ITS VHS COVER UHHH BAYWATCH AND GI JOE OR SOMETHING for having some of the worst gun feel of any game I have ever played. Reminds me of the defense for The Last of Us's poor gunplay, where diehard fans just say that it's "supposed to feel that way". While that kinda sorta not really makes a bit of sense for the shady, depressing tone of an apocolypse tale, why would they make shooting giant laser beams feel so unimpactful? Seriously, go replay it sometime, it feels like a PS1 game, and not in a good way. 

1. Shovel Knight. It's Duck Tales. People praise the devs like it's a masterful revival of retro platforming, when in reality they repackaged a few old ideas and are being heralded as divine figures. All the while other platformers are introducing fresh ideas and receiving far less attention. I had a whole spheal written up, but the forum decided to eat my final paragraph, thus confirming my suspisions of Shovel Knight's coming omnipotence, so let me leave you with this. There's a level, where there's lightning, and the stage goes black, SO  YOU HAVE TO SEE WHERE TO GO WHILE IT FLASHES1!!!!!!OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH

Lazy level design elements like this blew chunks in Megaman and they still Blow here. 
Wait, people still play Runescape?

Kinda, the devs went full retard and killed Ace of Spades, then released the old runescape client for free to cover their butts. My complaint was more about all of the dummies who pretend that the old version was some fantastic achievement in vidja. 
Remember when I said earlier on this thread that Angry Birds is the most overrated game out there? Well, it still is but it has some serious competition now. The Last of Us. I still can't wrap my head around how people think it's the perfect game and how pretty much every game after it has been a "copy" of it or how every game after it should take example of it. A game where you have a supporting character who doesn't really do much aside from follow you around? Blatant copy. A game with sneaking mechanics and shooting? Wow, Last of Us did it first. A game with zombies? Why would you when there's TLoU? A game with graphics and gameplay? I dunno, I guess My Summer Car is now a Last of Us copy.

Just so you know, a Finnish rye bread used Joel's character first.

Oh boy The Last of Us. Personally I like it, but I'll agree with you it is overrated and not as great as people make it out to be. Multiplayer is pretty fucking great though, it's actually quite interesting and unique.

But the game is farrrrrrrr from perfect. You should see my replays I took with the share button from when I played the remastered version on Grounded. I had the most retarded shit happen to me and ONLY ME. Everyone else calls my game bugged or just "wow that didn't happen to me"

I finished Grounded and saved around 20 gameplay videos of retarded shit involving AI being stupid, cheating, animations fucking up and stupid shit in general.

Anyhow, enough with my Last of Us dribble.

These are in no order.

Dark Souls 1/2
Borderlands 1/2
Bioshock: Infinite
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Oh, wow. Let's see...... just 5? But there are so, so many bad ones...
Think... think... think...

Okay, okay. I got it -

5. Kylie Jenner's Lip Challenge
4. any game Jigsaw wants to play
3. Russian Roulette
2. Hunger Games
1. HOUSE - you know, that game you played as kids where you and another kid were the mom and dad, the other kids were your children and everything was carefree and innocent and. That was the biggest, most overrated freakin' game you could ever play.

Its so beautiful!
I was wondering when this was gonna come back. I gave it some thought before posting the games, and here they are. From 5 to 1. Be warned, there is criticism about these games here. 

5. Final Fantasy 7- Honestly, this one makes the cut because it made me feel bittersweet. It was one of the first RPG games my older brother introduced to me to the genre of the RPG. But after beating it and finding out what later happened in the game. It just made me feel questioned why I even liked this. Hell, 'the simple plot of final fantasy 7' from Starbomb sums it up how complex the story is. Sure, some of the characters are great, but it really needs to be given a break once in awhile. Honestly. There are other great RPG games that are not from Square, can you at least mention any of those on those 'top ten best lists' please? Besides. The series itself needs to be put to an end since Square really has nothing to do with the series anymore.

4. Minecraft- If there was one game that literally made me say wtf its this game. The game itself just looks like an unfinished beta game from the 90s. All you do is build stuff. The only thing good that came out of it was that South Park episode that made fun of this game. I never really understood the hype of this game. I tried playing it once, but it really didn't catch my interest on going beyond the game itself.

3. Bioshock infinite- I am a fan of Bioshock(but I cannot comment on the second one) the third one has been praised, but after playing it. It just left me with mixed emotions. Its a good game, but it feels like something was out of place when they were making this game. Like they wanted to do something completely different with an original title, but it got reworked into a Bioshock game. Not to mention the fact that the ending of this game just leaves me with so many unanswered questions. Those aren't likely gonna get answered. Unless if the questions are answered in Burial at Sea.

2. Call of Duty, Halo, Gears of War, and any FPS that is too realisitic- These games have all the same things in common. The same gameplay, same story, and a ton of crazy people defending them since they are the 'best game ever'. Honestly. I'm not that big into first person shooter games because there's barely any story to them. The only one I managed to enjoy out of the FFP genre was Bioshock because it was trying something different with the genre. And it gave you a choice of being good or evil. Unlike most shooters where it just had you going from point A to point B just shooting the living hell out of everything. Its games like these that make me wish that FPS games would take a different route with the genre. Pulling a bioshock and having a story for the game. 

1. Five Nights At Freddy's- I'm probably going to get a ton of backlash for this. I am not big onto this game. This game wasn't made for me, it was just made for those who love jumpscares to the point where they can stomach it down on a daily basic for a meal. I would have enjoyed this game if it was more on the lines of Resident evil/Silent hill. With the backstory along with the never ending speculations, that kind of a thing would work so much with a survival horror like Resident and Silent instead of it being a point and click game where you just stand around in one room trying not to get killed by the anamtronics. 
My top five Overrated games that I completely hate:

5)The Last of Us - I just really don't like how much hype the game has when it's pretty mediocre. Bland story that tries to make you feel bad in the first five seconds, bland characters, I just can't stand it.

4)Final Fantasy VII - I've never played it, and while I'm planning on trying it soon, I just can't stand all of the hype people give it.

3)CoD: MW2 - People always say that this game is really the best game in the series, but I see that it's really just tacked on to the story of the original Modern warfare. (Also tacked on villain).

2)Pokemon (Gen 1) - I really don't get how people say that this is the best gen, when it's completely riddled with glitches and completely unoriginal designs. Because obviously a Pokemon that is an Ice cream cone, or a garbage bag is Unoriginal, while the gen 1 games had such original Pokemon such as, but not limited to; A pokeball, A magnet, an upside down pokeball, 3 magnets, a bull, a pile of sludge, a slightly larger pile of sludge, a kangaroo, a rock, a slightly larger rock, an even larger rock with little rocks surrounding it, A bat with no eyes, a bat with eyes, and much more.

1) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - I don't really have much of an explanation for this one except that the game is pretty bland and boring, while people say that it's the best thing since sliced bread.

(As a little drinking game, go back through and take a drink every time I said; "I really, I think, I don't really, I just, and I")
Street Fighter IV
Devil May Cry 1
Assassin's Creed II
Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past/Ocarina of Time
Spider-Man 2

Well, about 90% of the playerbase don't care for the story so it doesn't matter if it was good or bad, and I can vouch for MW2 since the mulitplayer was actually pretty damn fun.

The best way to describe it would be that "it was so broken it made it fun" there was something about how everything was unbalanced on one sided maps to the point that you could actually turn around a game that you were losing that make the game incredibly fun to play. People think it's great because it never really got boring, the maps were great sans Estate and Derail, you could use all the weapons to your advantage, nothing was overpowered or underpowered and if it was they usually patched it. Playing the game by yourself was just as fun as playing it with your friends. Plus, all the glitches the game could have were hilarious, the care package glitch could turn an average game into a hectic clusterfuck of everyone rushing for crates while AC130's, Harriers and Chopper Gunners rain down fire onto everyone.

Seriously dude, you don't know the fun of winning countless games of Search and Destroy with a riot shielding team, especially against tryhards, quickscopers, all the dregs of the CoD community.

The later CoD's try to balance the game and this never works, Advance Warfare has interesting gameplay and stuff, but there are only several maps that are good and I only ever use about 2 weapons out of the 40 or so they have to give you.

There's a reason there is demand for a HD edition for the PS4/Xbox One.
