    I'd have to say FF7. It's a good game, don't get me wrong. It just isn't this legendary piece of work like a huge amount of people say.

    For example, in the context of this thread, FF7 and D3 aren't overrated, because everyone that's commented on them has expressed dislike in one way or another. And I think that's the opinion of most users on this forum that have an opinion on those subjects. There's very few people here that will call D3 good, and from the various Final Fantasy threads I've seen, 7 rarely makes it into the top 3 for most people.

    Final Fantasy 6 is overrated. I don't believe it's as good as most people tell me it is.
    The thing is there is not nearly enough people on this forum to reflect the entire gaming community. Also, people on these forums tend to complain a lot, and I mean A LOT. Doesn't really it a reliable source for this kind of statement.

    What people? I'm really curious, because on every forum I've ever been on most people have shared your opinion. And your opinion makes no sense to me if most people share your opinion. It would only make sense if your opinion was in the minority.

    Edit:To give you an example, I watched a marathon on twitch.tv called Awesome Games Done Quickly. During the marathon, people would donate for various things. And I believe it was at the previous AGDQ, (not the one from a couple weeks ago, but the one before that) where they had a part where they let the viewers decide which Final Fantasy would get ran via donations. They said, "vote for the best Final Fantasy!" and 6 won by a landslide. And there was like 70k people watching this stream.

    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    Exactly. Overrated means a game that achieved undeserved fame and popularity. This is why i picked Minecraft (everyone and their mother recorded themselves on youtube playing it) and Skyrim (memes, sketches, videos, costumes for a barely okay game???)

    Personally I'd say
    Borderlands: I though this game was just awful. Crappy graphics/visuals. Lame combat. Wasn't fun at all (though I hear it's much better on multiplayer)
    Bioshock: Repetitive combat. Poor pacing. Idk I just wasn't a fan. Everyone was raving about it and I thought it was just a gneeric shooter with clunky controls.
    And finally
    GTA IV: I like to think that I don't suffer from "gaming ADD" I can enjoy a slow paced game if it's done well. GTA looked great and all, but after over an hour of playing I was still chaffeuring my cousing and taking girls to bowling alleys... I always thought the point of GTA was fast paced action and doing crazy shit, not boring, mundane, everyday activites.

    Oh ya and
    Fable: I remember when it first came out and everyone was going crazy about it. People were calling it the best RPG ever but I had just finished playing KOTOR which was a million times better than Fable. It was extremely dumbed down and way too linear for my liking.

    I've seen quite some people on forums that say other wise. Anyway, like I said posts on a forum are not a reliable source to go by if you want to make that kind of statement, as the majority of people only come to forums to complain. Almost every single person I ever spoke to who played FF7 is nuts about it, it sold good, recieved numerous awards, and it scores really high on game reviews. That's enough for me to say it's overrated.

    It's the worst 'source' I have, but it's from personal experience. It happend to me that my high-school was full of those anime loving emo kids (not trying to flame or hate, it's what they were) who were all having this.. Expressive love for FF7. I never got interested in ANY Final Fantasy game. But they were all talking about it as it was God's Gift to the game-library.
    Then I got to my college.. Same. Thing.. I guess the love for FF7 fits in with a certain sub-culture. As most of the 'emo kids' are also quite in love with everything that's Asian.

    I am not trying to flame anyone or put them in a bad light, just putting it as it is.

    For me it is probably Half Life. The other game that got hyped and didn't get into was Unreal. Doom 3 has to be on the list too. (I love Quake and Quake 2 however)

    Diablo 3, no idea. Bought the CE, but didn't play for long. I wouldn't even say I disliked it, I just still spend too much damned time in WoW, there is no room for any other game. Is it overhyped and overrated? The verdict will be the sales figures of the x-pac. But mind: It seesm EVERYONE loved D2. Yet while the game sold 4.5 million copies, the x-pac LOD only sold 1.5 million. Now what does that tell us?

    So, in short: the internet.

    I loved FF7. Couldn't even bring myself to finish 8,9, and whatever others I've tried. So apparently here's atleast one person who overrates it _o/

    Anyway, games I feel were overrated... dunno, Bioshock maybe. Good, but nothing spectacular. Really it'd be much easier to name underrated games. I feel there are more games out there that get undeserved amounts of criticism, than mediocre or poor games that get undue credit.

    That when the game was released gaming was still considered to be done among the nerds/geeks. Gaming these days is very.. 'Mainstream'.

    All I can think about for the meantime is Swtor,gw2,d3 and wow cata. Cata because it was too overrated/hyped at start leading to the worst ending ever... as for d3 I believe its obvious, I think it was overrated due to people waiting for it since a very long time but afterall, its just the same thing x4(though ill give it a try once the pvp patch comes out). As for the other 2, we all saw those threads where one of them would be the "wow killer" ending up with many people not liking it.

    Final Fantasy 7 and many other games of the franchise.

    Borderlands was "okay - ish" but way too hyped for me, especially the 2nd part.

    Skyrim kinda.. its fun still today but again the hype and stuff around it not so much.
    "Why do we fight? To protect home and family, to preserve balance and bring harmony. For my kind the true question is, what is worth fighting for?"

    Half-Life and all console games.

    Which I personally find sort of revolting, since I think 8 was the worst game in the entire FF series, and I HHAAAAAAATE 10. Everybody has their own tastes.

    1. Diablo 3
    2. Duke Nukem Forever (overhyped, that is)
    3. Call of Duty series

    And for the love of all that is holy OP, it is SWTOR. Not SWToR. That 'o' is for 'OLD', not 'OF'. Sorry, that drives me batshit crazy ><

    That's more the whole overhyped thing about it. The stories about GW2 and SWTOR being the WoW-killer was before it was even released. Same goes for D3. People seemed to be more interested in the game when it wasn't released yet. Once it was released a lot of people seemed disapointed (due to the hype) and now throw all their poo-filled toilets at them.

    All I see in the game is "every game that has been successful that the cool kids play and I don't"

    But for the hell of it, D3 was crap.

    Don't know what you are talking about looting in D3. RNG is RNG. There are many flaws in D3 but what your problem is simply your bad luck...

    Overrated game for me

    Half-Life...

    There are a few candidates:

    Ocarina of Time - It only stood out because it was the first Zelda in 3D graphics. Link to the Past was much better.

    FF7 - Definitely one of my favorite games ever, but the way people revere it over any other FF seems silly. I liked FF8 better.

    Counter Strike series - Mostly overrated from a competitive standpoint. Its long lasting legacy is all that keeps it around.

    The entire CoD series - They can provide mild amusement, but I will never understand how it is more popular than Halo.

    The entire DOTA genre - It sucks. The popularity of this genre, in particular LoL, is a complete mystery to me.

    WoW - A fine game, of course, but I feel other MMOs are never given a true chance by the stubborn WoW fanbase.
