Demon Souls, Dark Souls etc...maybe it's because it's too difficult for me but those games are no fun at all.

Overrated RPGs? (Or, in other words, didn't lived up to the hype behind them)
Hmm.

Dragon Age 2
Final Fantasy 13
Destiny (Still play it, though)

Final Fantasy 7.

I get that it was one of, if not the most influential RPG of its time, but its overrated.

Its like Halo CE, great game that people will go to bat for, but its just an overrated game now because its time has past. FF7 is the same way. Its time is passed.

FF7 has definitely shown its age. However when it came out it was so far ahead of anything ever done before. Outside of say a 30 sec intro CGI was non-existant back then.

Most of them, they rarely live up to the hype. Stat min maxing and other all too familiar mechanics with a story I probably don't care about.
Games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 are only tolerable cause the amount of stuff to do and find, the story is garbage IMO. As a genre it's just gotten progressive more stale.

Every Japanese title and especially Dark Souls and Bloodborne. The only RPG worth your time to come out recently is Witcher 3. Good thing it was awarded GOTY 2015 aswell, proves to show that at least some of the best titles get the appreciation they so well deserve.

Pretty much every MMORPG I ever played has the same problem of becoming boring after the first few levels.

*looks at topic*

Final Fantasy VII? Check. Figured there'd be multiple mentions of that.

And I used to joke that the entire middle tier of JRPGs was made up of Tales games, but some are better than others. (If only the PS3 version of Vesperia had been localized!)

I feel like I should say Persona 4. I mean, I love the game (and especially its characters), and I even like the various spin-offs, but I feel like it's starting to wear out its welcome. That, and its popularity means other games in the same franchise get overshadowed, even the more accessible ones like Devil Survivor 2. ... The less accessible ones are where the neat stuff really is, IMO. Trust me. Play Nocturne or Strange Journey if you want a really crunchy story (... and high difficulty).

*raises hand*

It has its fans, and those of us who are left are very devoted. Hell, I got my PS1 back in '99 because of that game. Not only that, but I met the young lady who ended up becoming my wife because we were both big fans of the game. ... So I'm a little biased, haha. The game itself hasn't aged too well in several regards, but it's still fun (if you know the right ways to Junction; otherwise, it's a pain in the ass).

You
I like you
ToV is my favorite game of all time
I bought an xbox solely for Vesperia

Fallout 4 for me.
So much hype and it was such a letdown imo
New Vegas was better than that POS. Fingers crossed for a Obsidian Fallout game after Fallout 4

We couldn't get that lucky, Bethesda completely stiffed them on a big bonus over 1 point in the Metacritic score for New Vegas.
