What’s the general consensus for the most overrated classic game EVER? What widely considered classic game do you consider to be a total SHAM? Don’t keep those controversial opinions to yourself; vomit them here and we’ll fight to the death over them. TO YOUR DEATH, I SHOULD ADD. My own ill-conceived thoughts are: Ocarina of Time I’ve never got how this game is so widely considered as the greatest ever (see Metacritic, endless lists of the best games ever blah, blah, blah). The storyline and the gameplay just never grabbed me and I got pretty far before completely losing interest. It just lacked something to keep me hooked. To me, A Link to the Past is a much, much better game. Metroid Prime This game doesn't get the sheer CONTEMPT it deserves. Great game to start with and I carried on enjoying it as I built up my powers. Then, about just over half way through, my interest dropped off a cliff. Waaaaay too much backtracking for my tastes, especially combined with respawning enemies. The bosses were also annoying cockfests. Bioshock It's a very good game but one of the best ever, as indicated on stuff like metacritic? NO WAY. Not enough depth or consistency to be up there with the best. I suspect the massive hype and review scores were more than a little down to the hugely evocative setting and atmosphere rather than it being a truly classic game at heart.
