Besides what was up there from pages 1 - 3 (too lazy to read pages 4 - 9),

The World Ends With You
Super Mario RPG


How the HELL are either of those overrated?


Honestly, they just are that bad to me.

The World End With You is a great JRPG, it does a lot but not enough.
Sure they added a new way of play, but even that get repetitive starting from about 25% through the game.
Everything else about the game was average-RPG format: average plot, crappy dialogue, (usually) teenage protagonists, an equipment section, inventory with food, and all the other stuff that I cannot think of right now. By the time I actually finished the game, I threw it away into the deepest reaches of my closet, hoping to never ever see it again, unless I am really really bored.

Super Mario RPG just wasn't fun for me. Sure it had a great plot, and I was happy that Bowser was actually one of the protagonists this time, but that just wasn't enough. The battle system had the action commands thingy where you had to time to counterattack or block, but that was it. Overall, it was still just turn based combat.


And don't get me started on graphics. I could play a really crappy looking game and give a great review and rating, as long as it is fun.

Wth? It sounds like you don't even like JRPG's, in which case, why are you playing these games? TWEWY has a great new action battle system, that once you get the hang of is very fun, if you say it gets repetitive then don't play a FPS because all you do is shoot things for the whole game, or a action game because all you will be doing is cutting stuff up through the game. Also, just because a protagonist is a teenager doesn't mean you write them off automatically. Honestly, I hate when people say that, its like they want all there characters to be 25 year old men or some crap, in which it would not fit at all for this story. Not only that, Neku isn't your typical main character. For one, Neku isn't some badass, nor is he that awesome guy, or just the average joe they try to get you to releate to. Neku is a person, his own person, he hates other people for the most part, has a idol, and wants to live. Every character is different and unique. The dialouge written for the game is good, I even laughed my ass off at some parts, and the story isn't just like every other RPG. Tell me all these RPG's that follow this ones story? It follows a general outline of presenting characters and having them develop, but if that honestly makes you mad, then wtf? For Super Mario RPG, your complaining about turn based combat, how can you call a game overrated if you don't even like turn based combat? Don't play the damn game if you don't like turn based combat, thats like a person calling Bioshock overrated because they hate shooting guns. Honestly from your complaints all you want is something that isn't a RPG at all, in which case, STOP PLAYING RPG'S!

The graphics for TWEWY are good, the game has a nice visual style with the backgrounds and the people populating Shibuya, if you don't like games that focus on style over pixels, go pay 4000 bucks on the best PC evar and play Crysis, and Super Mario RPG is a SNES game, stop bitching.

How can people even say that the FF series is overrated?

Each are so different, and many in that series have not garnered as much attention as others. Honestly, from the majority of the current FF fans, probably only 30% or less has played FFI-V.

Other than thaaaaaaaaaaaaat. FFVII is overrated; just simply because Squeenix won't let it go and some people don't care for the quality of the game but just because it's FFVII. Not to say that it's bad, no, not bad at all, but it's just... Yeah.

Anyway.

Uhm, CoD and Halo, also.

GTA, too.


Because people always blab about how its the best RPG series ever, and its not even close. The first games really focus on your basic story of light vs dark, chosen guys blablablaba, 7 is bleh, 8 is good 9 is meh 10 is BLEH, 11 is not to be spoken of and 12 is good. A series that is said to be the greatest of all time really should have a better track record then something like that...


Is it really called 'the greatest RPG of all time' enough to be considered overrated?

(That's a sincere question. Coz honestly, I've never heard anyone call it that.)

And you can't call that a legit 'track record' because everyone's opinion differs. Your's is just one in the millions. Famitsu called VII and X the best FF games respectively; just to show how it's all a matter of taste.

Halo - GTA - FF (any of the final fantasy series really) - Warcraft (mmo & rts versions)

Being overrated doesn't mean its a bad game in any way, its usually just people get tired of hearing about it when they don't agree with your opinion of the game. There really isn't any one BEST game nor will they ever be since each person has a different opinion/playstyle than everyone else.

Those two are the most overhyped, all they both were were very pretty movies, 10 more then 7. But yes, people do often say that it is the greatest RPG series of all time ever, and little time have they played some of the other greatest series.

Final Fantasy 7 wasn't that over-rated, it was an excellent game for its time, and it still is. It just needs a big graphical update, and maybe good voiceovers :D.

Worse can't describe how fans fap over that series. You hold a gun and blow stuff up... oh wait, just like EVERY other FPS out there.


Halo is overrated, but it doesn't sound like you even played it enough to deem it so. You are saying that every FPS is overrated, because you hold a gun in all of them and you blow stuff up in all of them. Great logic there.


Uh... har har?

Unfortunately for you, YOUR logic is wrong on this one. I agreed on a previous poster's opinion of Halo. Which I found, after 4 hours of it, lacked any decent gameplay that set it apart from other games of that genre.

"You hold a gun and blow stuff up... oh wait, just like EVERY other FPS out there."

Read it carefully. You blow stuff up. Just like every other FPS out there. Hmm... nope. I didn't mention that every one of them was overrated.

Great logic you have there. :B

No, you said you hold a gun and blow stuff up and you said Halo was overrated, saying its overrated because you do the basic thing of shooting and blowing stuff up, is also saying every game that is holding a gun and blowing stuff up is overrated, and give me a FPS where you don't hold a gun and blow stuff up.

The argument could be that in Halo, you hold a gun and blow stuff up, but it is more polished then other FPS, or it could be that its less polished, or the way in which you blow things up could be different, but you, you just say its overrated because you hold a gun and blow stuff up like every other game. Therefore, every game in which you hold a game and blow stuff up, like in another game, is overrated, by that logic at least.
