most of you will probably disagree with me but i feel like dark souls is : /
I'd also like to add Journey as the most overrated game. Played the full thing after hearing it won so many awards, but it was a complete boredom. How did this game deserve any awards??
The game was apparently meant to touch your emotions or something, thats pretty hard to accomplish when I'm falling asleep by how boring the game was. Should've given The Walking Dead these awards instead, atleast that game made me cry manly tears.
I think allot of people here need to learn the difference between games that were over rated and games that were a huge disappointment.
But on topic i think the first games that come to mind are the modern CoD games and many of the nintendo games like zelda , mario etc etc. I know people grew up on them but seriously , people hold any of those games which are just clones to such a high reguard its beyond me.
No, it isn't, and using Caps Lock, calling me dumb and raging in your posts won't change reality. Seeya.except it IS one of the best action rpgs in the world.
+1 to many of the above, especially Skyrim... worst combat in an RPG ever.
But the original StarCraft can't be overrated, it IS that great.
SWTOR: So much promise, so much of a letdown. That this game won any "game of the year" awards, even by nonenties in the mainstream press who are utterly clueless is one of the biggest jokes of all time. They spent 99% of their time and money on developing the single player aspects of this game, and maybe 1% on the MMO aspects. Other than the thrill of having a lightsaber and being in the Star Wars universe, and the accomplishments of completing any instance, raid or winning a battleground, there was hardly any "fun" to be found in this game. Zones and questing hubs were poorly designed; in-game travel was a slog and a bore. BW and EA made many promises, which were never kept. Repetitive cutscenes got waaaay boring with alts.
The guy with many Avatar: The Last Airbender names.
Pong! Sure, it's fun... if you got nothing else... it's pretty fun considering it's age though... but then again, the idea is based on tennis, which is older... but still, it isn't half-bad... if you got nothing else!
I don't play many games these days though, so I don't know about which have disappointed me compared to their general estimation... haven't really played many different games. I liked most of the games I have played or forgotten about them. There's something to be said about the generation that the games find themselves in, though, but I don't really know. I can't remember the ones that have disappointed me!

Every zelda game ever.
Final fantasy games.
Assassins Creed games.
GW2, especially within the mmo-champion community.
The Diablo games.
BioShock: It wasn't a bad game, but I never did see why so many people thought it was so awesome. It had an interesting 'twist' to it, but that was about it.
Most Overated games:
Call of Duty
League of Legends
I know these are oldish games but they should be releasing new ones because of how good these were.
It's time to level up and quit your newbie ways

Madden for sure. 2K Sports made a better football game, and then EA bought out the NFL so no other company can make an NFL game. Pathetic, and I will never buy another madden game again.
Mario 64, I didnt get it then and I dont get it now, in fact anything to do with mario even mario kart which is decent but short term only. GW2 was a close second. I despise the mario character and I found the meachanics to be equally dull. I was a bit of a sonic fanboy though.
CoD 4 onwards
Madden games. They're fucking abysmal. I tried to get my wife into them since she's a football nut and I figured it'd be another thing we could play together. No go. She will, however, play NHL with me, and at least they kind of try each year. Win-win.
Anything Elder Scrolls. I haven't even finished Oblivion or Skyrim fully because I just don't care. They're the exact same game with the same fruity controls and weird graphics, especially when you go third-person view just to see what your character looks like. Spoiler alert: he looks like a G.I. Joe being played with by an autistic kid's invisible hands.
The Diablo/Starcraft series. All of them. They're terrible. I actually really enjoy the Warcraft games, but the rest of them just fall flat. There's no magic or anything interesting to me in them, so they just become another strategy game that gets boring quickly.
Anything Pokemon beyond the first two games. The rest are just the exact same, except with worse characters, worse creatures, and amazingly almost the exact same graphics over a decade later. I bought Black and White a while ago, got about halfway through, and my DS is still sitting on my dresser unplayed for over a year now.
Dead Island. Oh my god, what a piece of crap. It's like The Walking Dead if it were a video game instead of a lousy TV series.
Zelda beyond the N64. Mario Party 28 through 60. Crysis 1 & 2. The Mass Effect series. Call of Duty: The Treyarch Years. Anything Fallout. The list goes on.
