I said it. Girls don´t play videogames. I´m an expert with some fancy diploma hanging on my wall, so trust me. It is also highly debatable, if Women use the Internet at all...still looking into that.

Since I hate most first person games I'll go with Doom 64 and Turok for the N64.

I've read the board, followed the topic, and didn't plan to post. The obvious choices are now out of the way.

Final Fantasy VII is a cinch, and for a while, this might as well had become a FF message board; it says it right on the back of the box: "Quite possibly the greatest game ever made." How could it not be overrated?

Halo 2 & 3 are locks too... Shooters have evolved less than JRPG's in my opinion, and most of the one's that are highly regarded since Doom got high marks on their graphics, story, or multiplayer.

WoW is a take-it-or-leave-it proposal; MMO's generally are, and just because this one got recognized by South Park doesn't make it special or great, just popular. I've played it and others. It doesn't do anything special. It just does what it does better than the rest.

Metal Gear Solid 2 was overrated by the gaming press, and I think even those who exalted it when it came out would deride it now.

Only one person mentioned Fable, and I agree. However, it was more a victim of hype than most of the others. Molyneux promised more than he could deliver, and more than any forseeable generation of consoles can deliver. It's rating's as I remember weren't great, but they were generous.

No one has mentioned The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. So I'm going to put it out there. It's the Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull of that series to this point. And I liked the graphics and stylistic direction of the game. The storybook/waterpaint motif worked. I don't think that it was a victim of hype, because once the screenshots were released, everyone ignored every aspect of the game to bitch about the new look. Don't get me wrong, Wind Waker is way better than a slew of games out there. The mechanics put in place by Ocarina of Time set the series up for success in the third dimension. But the pacing, the plot, the bosses, the adventure, and so on and so forth were just "meh" compared to what Nintendo Power, IGN, GamePro, EGM, and most other reviews I read made it out to be.

Okay, this one's a bit too obvious, but one game hasn't been mentioned yet (as far as I've seen) that deserves it's place in this thread: Crysis. Why the fuck is this game getting scores in the 90's on so many major gaming sites?
Okay, the graphics are good. Got that. But it's also the most hardware hungry programm ever to be seen on PC, so I would actually count that AGAINST the games score, since even on my PC, which is pretty damn good actually, I couldn't run it on medium quality without the frame rate frequently slowing down. Blech.
And the game itself is only mediocre. Fighting against the Koreans using your abilities is pretty fun, sure, but as soon as you see have to fight the aliens the game turns into a boring piece of shit, meaning the last 3 hours or so just plain suck. Anything higher than a rating in the 70's is too high, and even that's generous.

I'll do my homework and find the scores on TLOZ:TWW; I remember it getting great ratings from the gaming press, though, which to me weren't entirely deserved. I just felt that it never made it over the cusp of being a good game to being a great one.

edit:
9.6 IGN
5.0/5 GamePro
9.3/10 Game Spot
9.83/10 EGM

(I found the ratings on Wikipedia, so they could be completely fucking wrong)

Are you fucking kidding me? How the hell could you not liked CoD 4? Sure, it was all scripted, but that didn't stop the fights from being nothing short of amazing. And it looks nice too!

I have never had fun playing a match in COD4. The only redeeming feature is the story.

There are a lot better shooters for the 360. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Halo 3 are examples.
