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:

It is true: I too live in California, and whenever a MVC2 arcade machine appears somewhere, people seem to think it's a godsend. That isn't to say however that it is considered to be the best fighting game ever. Most people I know who play the game are well aware of its horrible flaws as well (most notably the complete lack of any character balance). I think it may be overrated in some circles, but real live players are generally more realistic. There are many games which are (rightly) considered to be far better--most notably the Guilty Gear series.
(That isn't to say, of course, that any one of my friends wouldn't immediately purchase the game if they saw a copy on the shelf!)

Also, Xrn, I can't really follow your logic--just because a game isn't available in a mass retailer, that doesn't mean it's not popular. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms series are quite a bitch to find in stores, but they are fantastic games. In fact, by my logic, the lack of MVC2 on store shelves actually speaks for its value; the people who like the game bought every available copy, and the people who own the game are holding on to it.

FF7 is pretty overrated...played back then...AWESOME!! now...oh...yay....more random battles....great...

I can't really think up of much....
gears of war I guess?
and maybe the Halo and Halo 2 series...
I really don't think WoW is overrated I mean, people only play if they like mmorpg and if they have the money and time..which I don't have and I usually get bored of mmorpg easily..

Generally, all first person shooter games are over-rated and over played now...they are all so repetitive, and the only difference is the skin of the monsters you kill and the amount of increased polygons to make the enemies look "realistic"

I really hope game designer become more original now and stop using same program engines and slap in a new skin, come up with some sort of story and say its a "new" game.

Sorry if i offended 1st person shooter fans but honestly, i just dont feel that im getting my money's worth if im spending 50 bucks on a new game thats just a the same, Eg. Halo, Doom, Fear, Half Life, etc etc.

Pong. Pong is severely overrated. Come on, the whole "it was the firstest and badassiest game ever to come to the face of the planet" thing is a little old and frankly, a little tiring. Give me Barbie's Magical Horse Adventure anyday.

any game based on a movie or tv show seems to have massive expectations for coolness but in the end is one of those onnce played gamez that has disappointing fights, story, or overall length. in short of u make a game based on a movie put more thought into it.

The whole Final Fantasy series?
There are only two games that I consider as overrated from that series and that's VII and X.


Yeah, I would go as far as to say the whole series, the series is always highly praised by critics and fans alike and I've yet to play one that is half as fun as they're made out to be

No, actually it just happens to still be the worst.
