    totally agree with you on the PoS3 games in youre list, but strongly disagree about the games that are on xbox360 their. dissepointed that you’d think the CoD is overated as its the most sucseffel game of the genertation and i guess bitter PoS3 fanboys just like to hate on it cuz xbox360 smashed all records last gen when PoS3 came in 3rd behind Wii LOL

    Totally disagree with everything said here. I am still playing Skyrim to this day because of all the potential gameplay options available. Also let’s be honest… MW2 was one of the funnest games ever.

    Hates bad writers.

    Do a top 20, plenty more turds that earned the overrated title.

      We have the list of underrated games up for tomorrow..

    You…uh… you don’t really know what you’re talking about, do you?

    I glanced over some other “articles” of yours and I don’t believe you really know much about video games at all.

    When you wrote about GTA V potentially flopping (yeah, how’d that work out?), you said, “GTA IV hit the storeshelves in 2008, and was an instant success despite mixed reviews.”
    98 out of 100 on Metacritic doesn’t seem very mixed.

    Now, lists like this are generally subjective, but they don’t really hold much weight as valid opinions when the one writing them is obviously inexperienced on the subject.

    Your Top 5 Underrated list has Demon’s Soul, 89 out of 100 on Metacritic. Does that sound underrated? Alan wake at 83?

    Or are you talking about consumer popularity? With Demon’s Soul selling 1.6 million globally, which is quite good for an out-of-no-where exclusive. Same goes for Alan Wake. While 1.3 million isn’t huge, it’s definitely not undersold and has a decent following.

    How about going with games that make sense to list, yeah?
    I mean, if you want good game thats undersold, how about:

    The Darkness
    Condemned: Criminal Origins
    Eternal Sonata
    Spec Ops: The Line
    Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

    All undersold, but well received by critics.

    The ones you listed were “meh” both in sells and reviews for good reason. They were all painfully mediocre, with the exception of Demon’s Soul and Alan Wake. The only one I’d give you is Alan Wake, but there’s so much love for it among critics and players that it’s difficult to give.

    This “Overrated” list holds a little more water, but GTA IV and Skyrim deserve most of their praise, and listing franchises as singular games in an overrated list is just lazy.
    If you make an “Overrated Series” list, sure, go for it, but Assassin’s Creed and Modern Warfare 2 have no place on this list if you’re going to bash them for franchise fatigue. The first AC was brilliant and something we didn’t have before and Modern Warfare 2, as much as I really dislike what the series has become, was a solid game as well. I prefer CoD4:MW’s multiplayer over MW2, but I wouldn’t call it overrated just because it gathered a HUGE following and really pushed yearly releases (which was happening anyway started with the first Modern Warfare in 2007, World at War in ’08, then MW2 in ’09).

    thatnaijablog, please get some better writers who know what they’re talking about.

      Hello Talidan,

      We appreciate your comments and criticism but that doesn’t mean their validity is without error. However, it’s glad you know that the author has 10-years experience following the gaming industry, while gaming articles looks to be on the low here, it can be attributed to other factors and not necessarily the lack of expertise. However, that would change once the migration from thatnaijablog to TechRez is completed. More gaming and tech articles will dominate. On the issue of getting better writers. Be rest assured that the author has his bragging rights but that doesn’t mean we won’t hire dedicated gaming writers.

      Thanks for visiting and do enjoy the rest of the day.

        It’s not a lack of gaming articles that’s the issue, it’s the clear lack of knowledge on the subject. If the facts aren’t straight, that’s not a technical issue, that’s a lack of expertise and, at the very least, research. A quick internet search is more than enough to make sure you’re providing accurate information.

        I understand there is a language issue here, so I can forgive difficulties discussing the matter. I wouldn’t even begin to know how to translate exactly what I’m saying to avoid any misunderstanding (so many languages in your area), but, even so, it does not make up for articles making false statements, and neither does site migration.

        Just get your facts straight and do a little research. There’s no reason not to on articles like these, you’re not pressed for serious time when making lists.

        I’ve been a gaming journalist, I know there’s a lot to soak in sometimes and there can be some stressful deadlines. I’ve been there, but you have to make sure your articles are of quality.

          Hello Talidan,

          Do you think if the list you mentioned in your earlier comments were to replace this one, it would be free of subjectivity?

    I think COD, Gears of War, Halo and Assassins Creed franchises as a whole deserve to be on here.
