Oh god... how could I forget Far Cry.

Couldn't even stand playing past the first few levels. Tried getting into it 3 different times and just got irritated and bored.

I thought FarCry was very well done, though I'll agree with you about FEAR, Doom3, and Quake4.

I liked Quake 4. Overall, I thought it was better than the other 3.

the entire halo series

3 seals the deal by improving nothing and making it last only 6 hours long though.. Xo

Agreed, i enjoyed Q4 a ton more. Because the environment was not as dark, you could actually look and appreciate the graphics more IMO. The vehicles were fun too.

Also, never got into tetris. Quite overrated.

I have to agree with CaptNKill about how Doom 3 got such good reviews despite being a very average game and Quake IV got worse reviews despite being an overall better game (Still not that great though).

wwhhhhaaaatttt?

Guitar Hero is so fun. Oblivion was overrated, it's like they had to scrap the depth of the series for the graphics. I didn't really like Stalker, either, but that wasn't really THAT popular to begin with.

Easily half-life 2. That was one of the worst, most over-hyped and over rated poorly coded, piles of steaming, maggot infested dung I've ever played.
