Projects that took off on a pedestal, while not providing gamers with real content. These titles maintain their status through old merit or lack of competition.
Why do some projects bring millions of dollars to their creators, and some fall through with a bang, it is difficult to predict. Of course, there are stable, time-tested titles that the community rarely complains about, but there are also many projects that took off on Olympus almost by accident. Share TOP 5 most overrated games.
The Sims Series
It’s foolish to argue that the first The Sims revolutionized the gaming industry. It was first sandbox game without any restrictions other than purely technical ones. Players received the first detailed life simulator with a huge amount of gameplay features and incredible content.
Each subsequent part of the Sims series was more elaborate in terms of game design and new game features, but there was no more “furore”. Now the society expects The Sims 5, but it does not cause any enthusiasm in the community. It will come out – and well, it will not work – everyone will continue to play in part 4, using hundreds of mods. This the title has long ceased to amaze and now it is simply taking advantage of the absence of a worthy competitor.
Top 10 Sims 4 Challenges
FIFA is a football simulator, which already raises questions for many gamers who do not perceive this genre in principle. However, if we discard all stereotypes and look at FIFU, then optimism is still not added. Project does not change from year to year, but manages to rise in price.
Yes, the graphics change somewhere, the composition of the teams, perhaps 1 or 2 new chips appear, but there is simply no need to create a new game for this. It would be enough to update the project every few years, and all the necessary updates add via DLC… However, greedy EA have other plans with which they have turned their title into mediocrity.
Metal gear solid 5
Kojima is a genius! Gamers love to shout, force a meme, and not thinking about what actually lies under this phrase. Yes, this Japanese developer once made a breakthrough in the gaming industry with his Metal Gear Solid series. adding a cinematic feel to gaming, however, he personally ruined his own gold ruler with his own hands.
In the fifth part there is nothing: no plot, no action, no competent gameplay. The story is as flat as possible and boring, even Easter eggs and sending it off do not save her. The passage is deliberately stretched out with boring missions and, of course, grind. Here you have to grind like in a korean MMO, while paying a lot of money for the game. Everything got to the point that a donate store was introduced into the game, where game currency can be bought for real money – why not Perfect Wotld?
Nier: Automata burst into the market on a wave of love for anime, but in practice the game turned out to be completely unviable. She was raised to the top because of defiant character design and a huge amount of fan content around them. However, the main characters are just a dummy, and even the creator of the project confirmed this. He personally stated that he created the characters that way, because “he likes girls“. There was no more plot or lore explanation.
If you step aside from the girls in short dresses, then the game turned out to be very protracted and boring… Dialogues are poorly spelled out, heroes absolutely not remembered… The characters simply do not have characters, and only a few stand out for their appearance. The game pretends to have a philosophy, but in fact it is served too roughly, like in publics with quotes on social networks.
The incredible monotony of Among Us was a little erased by those days when all the inhabitants of the Earth were at home and could not meet in real life, in clubs or restaurants. However, as soon as the restrictions slept a bit, everyone cons of the project immediately climbed out. And the developers sat quietly for a long time, trying to pretend that their project is viable without new content, however the outflow of players showed the opposite.
As a result, the Airship map was added to the title, and then new modes and cosmetic improvements were announced. However, no matter how hard the developers try, Among Us will still remain a game for kidswho like to swear and cheat.
Is it better to be an impostor or a crew member in Among Us?
Overpriced games are not uncommon in the market. Some projects are incredibly infuriating for gamers, but they continue to be played. Why this is happening is difficult to understand, but this phenomenon has haunted the industry for more than one year.
