Eh, I'll go as far as to say FF7 is the best story in the series, but certainly not the best game (as in gameplay wise). Hell, the story is still debated to this day - that alone says something. I think it deserves some credit for bringing storytelling to a new level of depth and complexity in the video game world. "Save the world" maybe cookie cutter, but anything else in the story line in it hardly is. Keep in mind the industry this game was released in. It is overrated, and it's fanboys tend to overzealous, but I beleive it deserves the attention and praise it gets - related to the story and affect on the industry. The combat system was really meh, the new 3D rpg format was rather revolutionary based on what I've seen (not sure if anything beat it to it).

Halo is obscenely overrated. Too many FPS have doen what Halo did, not only better, but far earlier. The only thing Halo had going for it is how well it played on the Xbox.

Tekken - I've never been able to figure out the bid deal about Tekken. Virtua Fighter is superior on the technical level, Soulblade/calibur is superior on the button masher level. That's beaten twice in my book.

I haven't played Gears of War, but I suspect it's one of the few decent games on the 360 which makes it look alot better than it actually is.

Oh man, how I've always wanted to say this:

The entire fricken Halo franchise. Halo, by far, is one of the worst FPS ever. I hate it so bad. Give me Half-Life 1 for god's sakes over Halo any day. Hell, Wolfenstein 3D had better multiplayer than Halo, and Wolfenstein didn't even have multiplayer. Needless to say, you all understand my point that I really hate Halo.

final fantasy 7... YAY PEOPLE AGREE!!!... i mean its the typical someone is trying to destroy the world lets go save it type of game... and the battle system was just like all the other final fantasy battle systems at that time

CHRONO TRIGGER IS AWESOME completely deserves its over ratedness



When wrong, will object (im not really saying that your wrong or anything.. but counter argument be commin, lil' missy!)

FF7, though overrated, was good in it's own right.... You don't know what you are talking about...

The story was somewhat original, the character had inner conflicts and even though he was strong outside, he was weak at heart. Betrayal here is a bigger thing, unlike ff2, leonheart returned to the party without really being evil or anything..

the only other FF At the time was FF Tactics, this was not a turn based RPG, this also had something unique, there was a charge time.

The battle system and Ability growth were different from 6 and 8 yet similar to some extent to 5.

8 only used AP for the guardian force.

ATB was introduced in ff5 and stuck with the series until ten where it was more deppending on the speed of the character and how taxing the battles were.

The concept of materia and materia slots were , for me, better than the junction system in 8.

Chrono cross has too much hype, first off, it's story pales in comparison to Chrono trigger, this sequel however shed a darker light on the game, for this alone, im thankful for it's creation, but it's kinda disappointing when it came to the destruction of all the progress of chrono trigger.

Too many unneeded characters, i found myself bored to death by the lack of indepth story regarding all the other characters., this element was good for FF6, but not the chrono series (dispite the bad sequel, i want to hear more from the series)

YOU FAIL (Not really, Let's be buddies! KThnxBAI!!)

FF7 was a good game, but it is over blown by fan boys and girls

If they were ever to remake FF7, i pray that the only changes would be in the Graphics, Sound track, And good voice acting.


Yeh it is kinda overrated. still a great game imo.
a remake would be a fanservice but still, it would be great.!
Great graphics, i wouldn't mind the original soundtrack only they redid it a bit. Instead of lameass MIDI music. Like from the movie

HALO and HALO 2, Gears of War, Dead or Alive 4, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and pretty much every online roleplaying game.

How is Marvel vs. Capcom 2 overrated exactly....
You don't even hear much about that game really....
So please explain that to me.

I was at a tournament where we played VF4 and Tekken 4 and everyone was talking about their favorite fighting games and not once was Marvel vs Capcom 1 or 2 mentioned at all.....
I heard Mortal Kombat, Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Soul Blade/Soul Calibur, DoA and some other obscure ones I forgot.....


Maybe where you live it's not overrated, but over here that's the only fighting game everyone ever talks about. They don't shut up about it. The system is BEYOND busted and the characters are really messed up when it comes to strength. Everyone uses the same teams over and over and over. Magneto, Sentinel, Cable, Storm, Psylocke, Iron Man. That's all I ever see.

Overall I think the Mortal Kombat series past 3 (when they went 3 dimensional) are overrated...I haven't played the new one though (armageddon?) so hopefully it lives up to its name...

Both Halo games were just pure shit and that's all they were. Nothing entertaining about that unless you have a fetish for that sort of stuff....

I agree that the MK series is insanely overrated. Never liked playing the game and the same thing goes for this series as the game previously stated.
I was and am still into playing Killer Instinct and Gold which were awesome fighting games.

They only talk about Marvel vs Capcom 2 in California? That's pretty sad since I had a hard time finding that game in the store....
I went to KBToys, Gamestop, EBgames and damn near every other store not worth mentioning.

I find it hard to believe that they would only talk about it, I think you're lying and I'm just not going to believe or respond to any of your posts anymore.


You're a funny, funny man. I never said JUST California.

And if you can't find it anywhere it's because it's out of print.
You want proof that it's still famous, go here:
