    And the winner is..... HALO 1! (in my opiniton, of course..HALO 2 is better)

    I simply don't understand what people see in this game... that i don't.

    I'll list the things that turns that game into a huge ****, cause these points are very critical in a game:

    - Same enemies all the time. The only thing that changes is their body's color (like yellow, red, black...)

    - Story sucks (yeah you should disagree but i found it very generic)

    - Repetitive places. That's the point that i hate the most.






    So.... What's the most overrated PC game you've ever played?

    That's easy...

    BIOSHOCK

    :rolleyes::finger:


    In all seriousness, it is simply NOT that great. It's NOT the 10/10 "masterpiece" that reviews make it out to be. It's a decent game, but damn...why is it SO overrated??

    Daikatana... it was so bad that anything that you could possibly say about it would make it over-rated :)

    Oblivion and Doom3.

    They were all over the reviews, yet the gameplay was incredibly repetitive. And dumb.

    Halo 1 is better then Halo 2. The franchise sucks anyways, though.

    I would say World of Warcraft. I would rather play Diablo 2 online.

    Bah it is a great game. 'Decent' does not do it justice. How many games last more than a few nights? This game has so much to do, so many areas, secrets and has a great story. Bioshock is immersive as hell with a very believable environment. The hacking is a little repetitive and it would have been nice to have like 3 different styles of hacking but hey, again it's a huge game...Everyone is entitled to their opinions naturally, but lets wait for Crysis and see what bloated reviews that will get.

    Bioshock is a huge game and pretty bug free (for me anyhow). For the price and entertainment value I have to agree with the high ratings. I think it gives encouragement to developers to continue along the path because it says they are having success. I think Bioshock is the best game to have graced PC's in the last bunch of years and they have me sold on the followup. I hate buying games I finish in a nite or two.

    Doom 3, Halo 2 PC

    Halo 1 was good for the multiplayer (I say that, because I was very good at it) but when Halo 2came out for Vista, most of the maps were already being played on the CE. No real reason to get it

    Bioshock. Good game, but certainly not 10/10.

    And a game being bug-free isn't a pre-requisite for a high review score. It should just be a ****ing standard.

    I'd say CS. I can't stand it while thousands of people play it all the time. It may not be overrated for them, but for me it is.

    Installed it, started playing, and just didnt get the hype.
    Sure , there are a million units on screen, a sh1tload of units to choose from, but all in all, I expected so much more after reading up on it.

    Doom3 was also VERY disappointing.How come imps always pop up from behind? I swear to god i played a whole level in reverse, and it was much easier.

    I'd have to say Halo. I have it on Xbox and really, I don't see anything godlike and great about it. There's apparently tons of material about Halo but in all honesty...when you play it for the first time you don't see any of it.

    I beat it, left it alone.

    Half-Life 2, what a linear piece of trash. The game has absolutely no replay value, the AI is stupid, the weapons lack power, the lack of ambient sound derails the initially good atmosphere, and the majority of levels are boring. "Best fps ever"? Yeah, right...

    I second and third this comment. Stalker was the biggest pile of $hit that I've ever played. That fact that it took them that long to make is the saddest part of it all. What a waste of man hours, time, and resources. Complete garbage game all around.

    That and oblivion. This game was SOOOOOO hyped and it really fell totally flat. I got to a point in the game where I just got so tired of the same repetitive junk that I just stopped playing it. I literally stopped my character, turned off the game, and uninstalled it without a bat of an eyelash.

    I can only hope that Crysis won't be one of those hugely overhyped and underperforming games that happen every once in awhile. I wish that it didn't get as much hype because now it has to live up to it.. and I have a feeling it just won't at this point.
