What are some video game series that you guys think are overrated, and why?

Halo. Don't get me wrong I've enjoyed Halo up to Halo 4 but it seems the series can do no wrong. Halo 4 multiplayer was just not for me and I feel like they tried to appeal to a massive audience instead of focusing on what people love about Halo.

CoD, Zelda, Mario, and pretty much all those kinds of ''copy paste'' type games released every year.

I think the GTA series is overrated, specifically GTA 4. The combat mechanics feel so sluggish and I just could not get immersed in the world at all. I'm curios to see what people like about GTA though, because i can understand why people love it so much.

I wouldn't call it overrated but: Kingdom Hearts. I had KH2 for a while and I just never really got into it.

Probably the assassins creed series.  They are well produced and polished games, but I've always found the gameplay to be very uninteresting.

The Mario franchise.  Nearly every Mario game has the same plot line Princess Peach gets kidnapped by Bowser AGAIN!  And Mario is to save the dumb Princess Peach from getting kidnapped for like the 50th freakin time only Zelda ties that record for being kidnapped the most.

Cue the firestorm of hate

Metal Gear Solid

Could just never get into the series in general. Over the top acting, stories were meh and just wasn't interested. But I wont deny their inovation.

Uncharted. All I heard about before I got my ps3 was how amazing the series was. So since all 3 where out I got the series and played it first. I think the story was solid. The mechanics where pure crap as far as I am concerned. I would give the series a 6, maybe 7/10 because of how frustrating the controls and camera are.

Halo and CoD most overrated games for sure, they are fundamentally the exact same game every release with updated graphics and a couple new guns (cod) and armor (halo). Personally I won't buy any game that has a campaign if I won't play it at least once and both of their "stories" suck ass cause they're repetitive as hell and go nowhere. And I can see where most of you are coming from with most of the different games that have been mentioned except one... Metal Gear Solid!?!? Seriously!? Probably, no definitely one of the best franchises of all time. It's constantly evolving and innovating gaming and Phantom Pain will be no different.

I have to agree that COD has become very overrated and the genre of FPS altogether has become stale. Unless you give me incredible story like Bioshock, or remarkable villains like Vaas from Far Cry 3 or Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2, I don't feel like these games are worth GETTING HYPED for. COD for me was more about map design, and gameplay (meta to a degree), but the last few COD games have failed me in both. Still playable, don't get me wrong, but playable over a friends house, not something I'm foaming at the mouth to purchase anymore.

Probably Call of Duty if we're talking series. Don't understand all the praise behind GTA either.

 

Elder Scrolls as well, but mostly Skyrim..

Every Story and Graphic driven game...Uncharted Series comes to mind

 

When the best point that every player that defend the merit of this games comes to me and says...

Well the story and the graphics are SOOOOO nice...you should see the powdered snow, it is so beautiful when you run in it, it's AMAZING. No it's not, what is amazing is that you paid 50-60$ for good looking snow...move up in Quebec we have that shit all winter long and I hate it. Games are supposed to be played to have fun. I don't even understand people that love game with alot of realism, nice graphics and profond stories...go to the movies and leave my games alone you bastards.

99% of sports games, the ones that comes out every year...in NHL 2015 we are gonna be able to see the main coach chewing gum...amazing right, pay us 60$ please...., and updated roasters, unsignificant changes that do not affect the gameplay most of the time, for which you pay the total price.

COD, probably was good back in the days, before they went to made it into a sports game (meaning they release one every year).

Gran Turismo...realistic racing game you say...what car can withstand a 200 mph collision and still go in a straight line...or even still run.

Realism, graphics and story are the 3 things that ruin video games nowdays...back in the oldschool days, graphics were worse than shitty, story was inexistant and realism wasn't even part of the concept...Mario Bros. is the story of two Italian plumber who travel to a mushroom kingdom to save a princess from a Dragon...was I able to identify with the caracters, no, was I able to be amazed by the grahics, no, was I looking for realism, of course not, was I having fun playing...HELL YEAH !!! and bless those blissful days.
