Halo 3. That doesn't mean it's a bad game, of course. It's actually ok. But the hype and acclaim it's receiving doesn't come close to matching the in game reality of actually playing it. UT2004 on a console, only three years late to the party. BUT YOU CAN RECORD UR SHOOTINGS OMG

Baldurs Gate 1+2. Again, it's ok. But damn, what's all the fuss about? Hahah, he talks to his hamster, I CHANGED MY MIND ITS GENIUS.

World Of Warcraft. I don't raid, so maybe this is my fault and I'm missing out on something epically sweetsome. But the 1-60 content plays out like every level you've already played. i feel no more powerful as a lvl 60 than I did when i was lvl 1. It's like walking on a travelator without actually going forward. It probably doesn't help that the game is littered with collect 10 quests, players that insist on jumping everywhere they go for no reason whatsoever and "hay dude cn u lend me sum gold lol??????"""

Easily the Half-Life series.

The Halo series easily trucks along in the same vein. Decent games, made stupidly popular by their multi-player components. Halo having the distinction of being the only decent multi-player game to come out on the xbox and it's ease of playing. Similar, somewhat to Counter Strike and the hajillion other HL based Multi-player derivatives..

I'm gonna agree with Halo 3. Don't get me wrong. It's a great FPS, it looks and sounds amazing, but the gameplay... It just feels a little old and clunky. After playing GoW (I know it's not a FPS) Halo 3 just doesn't have the same energy. So yeah, whiles it's a very good FPS for consoles, it's not what it's made out to be.

BTW Painkiller overrated? You are insane SOAD! It was a hell of a blast!

You mean butcher's bay? Actually i played that one (and finished it) and i thought it was awesome: top notch graphics, awesome acting, the story is good and the gameplay was great too. Probably one of the best titles of that year (if not the best imho). My vote would go to Bioshock, don't get me wrong, it is good, but not as good as i expected.

Halo3 and BioShock, both great games for sure but not 10/10 scores they're getting.

When a game gets 10/10, to me that says it's perfect in every aspect; don't think ANY game can ever say that. Well maybe chess or tetris could be perfect I suppose....

Yep. I love Butchers Bay. An amazing game. It was better than the movie, looked better than Doom 3 released around the same time and had a great cast.
