Top 5 Overrated Games/Top 5 Underrated Games

Some games receive a bit too much love, or they don't get enough. This is a list of games I think are worshiped WAY too much or don't receive enough recognition.
Now, keep in mind that this doesn't mean I HATE the overrated games. In fact, most of them I LIKE.
I'll be doing overrated and then underrated after.

5

Secret of Mana... ugh.
Like joshscorcher and the Autarch of Flame, I don't see why other people love it.
The first boss is officially in my opinion the worst designed first boss in a video game. (Look it up. I'm saving that for a different countdown.)
The plot's really... weird, and not in a good way.
And the worst part? YOU HAVE TO UNLOCK THE CO-OP!
WHAT THE HECK?!

Re: Top 5 Overrated Games/Top 5 Underrated Games

I have it, and while it's really fun, the game is astoundingly difficult before you get magic. Spiky Tiger...
Also, you keep getting revived if you keep dying against the 1st boss, so it's more of a training boss.

And I kinda like the plot. While yes, it is NOT as good as people say it is, it is not as BAD as people say it is. It's pretty good, though how it managed to get such critical acclaim is beyond me...

The plot is cliche. Like you said, it's not as good as people say.
Also, I know. That's why it's bad.

Half-Life 2 is awesome.
But... honestly, people should stop throwing it onto a pedestal and worshiping it.
Gordon Freeman... too silent. Silent characters are just overdone.
The music... the only thing that really stood out was Radio.
The Gravity Gun... just became a gimmick.
You get my point.

Tetris has been put on a top games list when it doesn't deserve that. That's all you need to know.

MEGA MAN 2.
This game does NOT deserve all the love it gets. Let's see...
Metal Man dies in one hit from his weakness, the Metal Blades are completely broken, and the dreaded trio of Wood Man, Heat Man, and Air Man.
And then... the BOOBEAM TRAP.
I really have nothing else to say.

I hate number 1.
It deserves to die in a fire.
It combines everything I hate about video games. (Well, most things.)
Number 1 is
http://www.mariowiki.com/images/thumb/a/a8/Flowercreature.jpg/200px-Flowercreature.jpg
King Croacus: Hold on just a minute!
Me: ... King Croacus? ... why are you here?
King Croacus: I know what your number 1 is. It's Super Mario Galaxy 2! Just like you did in Top 10 Most Disappointing Final Bosses!
Me: But I -
King Croacus: That game is SUPERB! And you insulted it! How dare you!
Me: Hey, LOOK.
King Croacus: You've ruined the gaming industry by insulting Super Mario Galaxy 2! And I swear, I am going to kill you, you wretched mother f-
Me: I DON'T HATE SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2!






In fact, I love it!
All my earlier anger was directed towards the game because I was mostly rushing through the game. I didn't take the time to enjoy it.
But recently, I decided to replay it, and I actually took the time to enjoy it. Sure, it reused plenty of things from Super Mario Galaxy 1, but that's not bad! I mean, by that logic, God of War II was horrible!
And a final boss doesn't ruin the entire game. While I prefer the first game, I recognize Super Mario Galaxy 2 as a great game.
... Also, one thing: Green Stars = fake difficulty.

King Croacus: ... Oh... Well, I'm sorry I bothered you. I didn't realize that. Now, next on my agenda is to go chew out joshscorcher.

So... there you have it.
I'll continue what number 1 ACTUALLY is in the next post.

Re: Top 5 Overrated Games/Top 5 Underrated Games

That thing you did right there reminds me of the thing The Autarch said about liking Ocarina of Time. I can see where you've gotten your inspiration. ;)

Yup. The Autarch and the Fiery Joker are like my role models for countdowns.

I'll have you know that Tetris was the best-selling game for the Game-Boy back when it first came out.

[Insert random and irrelevant comment here.]

However, on the new Tetris games, I agree entirely. Too many game-modes. It's all so confusing. :?

Re: Top 5 Overrated Games/Top 5 Underrated Games

Considering how simple Tetris is, no more remakes are really needed.

Exceptions can be made to those that change the physics, like Not Tetris or Hell Tetris.

I understand.
But honestly.

You're telling me... you would rather play... TETRIS... than Metal Gear Solid 3.
You would rather play... TETRIS... than Guitar Hero 3.
When was the last time you thought, "I don't want to play some Mega Man. I want to play some Tetris."
... Okay, that last part was just me. But seriously.

I present...
THE ORIGINAL SONIC THE HEDGEHOG GAME.

Ha! Did I fool you?
I actually mean the CDi version!
Here's some comments I got:
"This game's great! Its structure is quite different from the previous games, allowing for more freedom!"
My answer: No. The controls are COMPLETELY unchanged, and the levels aren't really that different from the original.
"The music's great!"
My answer: IT WAS REUSED FROM THE PREVIOUS SONIC GAME. OF COURSE IT'S GREAT.
Sonic CD-I is a game that does not deserve to be #1 on a top games list. Period.

In the next segment, I'll be counting down the games that I think deserve more love. This'll be much more unique than the previous list. Let's begin.

Actually, it's the opposite. Many people consider Sonic CD to be one of the only good games on the system. If I remember correctly, there are 3 others. One of them is another sonic game---Well, it's not about sonic, but it's about one of his friends.
Or was that on another system... [It's Knuckles Chaotix.]
