We’ve written before about some of our favorite video games, the kind you always fall back on when you’re looking for something solid to play. Most of the time when we choose to fall back on classic video games, it’s because we’ve recently been let down by something else we’ve chosen to invest our time in; with that in mind, we here at Goliath are taking a look at 10 of the most overrated video games of all time, and letting our readers in on why we just don’t like the titles we’ve gone and listed below.
10. God of War (Sony Computer Entertainment)
We’ve never understood all the fuss regarding God of War, the third person action adventure game that allows players to control Kratos, a Spartan warrior who does the work of Gods, on a quest to find Pandora’s Box, so as to stop Ares (The God of War) from conquering Athens. The title, which makes use of Greek mythology as its base, never really satisfied our desire for a complex narrative and intriguing game play; rather, God of War is content to build its reputation on button mashing mechanics and crass or explicit dialogue and plot points. We’ve just never been on board, despite our best attempts at the contrary.
