Well, halo 3 of course, and I hate massively multiplayer games and all of the attn they're getting.

half-life 2 was rather overrated.

Honestly I thought stalker was pretty overrated, also Halo of course. I could never get into any Halo game.

HL2 definately. the print media folks, who seem to be hell bent on "pushing video games as an artform" really went too far with their praise.

Wow, a lot of Halo haters

The first one pretty much defined a whole slew of new developments in SP and MP and was WAY ahead of it's time. The 2nd one was the weakest of the 3, but the MP improvements were great and the story was extended and expanded nicely, not in a ridiculous OTP way like the Matrix or Star Wars series.

That and the outside levels (and some inside levels) are pretty open and the game can be completed using different weapons to suit different styles. Plus, the vehicles friggin ROCK

Half Life 2 again just brought so many cool things to the table. I haven't played any game as much as I have replayed HL2, except maybe Deus Ex.

D3, F.E.A.R. and Quake 4 top my list of absolute crap tbh.

Doom3, Halo 1-3, Q4.....all got more hype than they deserved. But IMO, by far, the most over hyped (recent)game was Supreme Commander...and I was a huge fan of Total Annihalation too....Sup Comm was such a let down ...not fun, crap UI and wth was with that zoom?? yea, and add total crap performance to boot....but all I ever read was how Sup Comm was the be all, end all of RTSs'.. I suspect and Microsoft\Media conspiracy hhehe

....these games made the correct adjustments and made the fps gaming development in the right tracks.
For me, Far Cry and CoD are extremely overrated. I don't really remember how much hype they had before release, but I played both of them about a year after they were released and found them average at best.

Far Cry had nice water and lots of trees. Other than that, the graphics were pretty average, and the gameplay seemed thrown together. Like they just stuck enemies in the levels in the most irritating places and shipped the game without play testing it.

CoD was very bland looking and the level design seemed pretty crappy compared to Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (which came out a year or two earlier). It just felt like a mish-mash of flat walls and enemies, with some cinematic moments thrown in so there were some things for the reviews to talk about.

There are only a hand full of recent (past 4 years) first person shooters that really stand out for me... Star Trek Elite Force 2, Half-Life 2, HL2 Episode 1, Call of Cthulhu and Chronicles of Riddick.

EDIT: Wow, I just realized two of those games are Xbox ports.
