FFD: What’s the most overrated game or series?

1 min read


Opinions are like assholes. Darryn’s an asshole. Those statements aren’t in any way related, but it’s a good lead-in for todays inflammatory debate; people disagree about things – there might be a mass public consensus as to how good or not something is – but there’s always that one fella who disagrees.

What critically acclaimed game (or hell, even series) do you think is a load of overrated codswallop? Off the top of my head…I’d have to go with  GTAV (oh, and Farm Simulator 2012). The amount of critical acclaim that game got soon after its release was inversely proportional to how good it actually was. Annoying virtual buddies simulator getting swatches of 10/10’s? Get knotted.

So tell us; what games do you just not understand the fuss about?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
