Half-life 2. That's not to say it's bad, because it isn't, it's pretty good, but it's a solid 6 or 7 out of 10, not the 9 or 10 out of 10, it seems to be considered.

Any game where you shoot things is a shooter.

Portal is a shooter.
Skyrim is a shooter.
Hearts is a shooter.

Destiny.
Although technically no one really likes destiny.
Still didn't stop it from being the most overhyped shit ever.

How is openness objectively better? Yeah Halo is more spacious in the single-player levels but if you break from the path there is fuckall to do, just the scenery. A cramped linear game at least can focus more on the atmosphere.

Yeah, I'd say Half-Life 2, too. Sure it was impressive back in the day due to all the innovative technologies it used. But it did not age well.

This is the correct answer. I'm sure it was a great game for 2004, but nowadays it's incredibly dull and doesn't really stand up to the first game.
>>
battlefields have always been overrated

I'm really glad people are finally starting to hate on HL1 and 2.
I played HL1 years ago, and remember thinking "that was it? I don't see what the big deal was."

It was so generic and boring, I didn't even bother with HL2.

Then I remembered:
/v/ has shit taste, and is pretty much wrong about 99% of games. Probably the only game they're right about is God Hand.
>>
Half life for sure

Don't get me wrong. It introduced a lot of innovative concepts to the genre. But were it released today instead of over a decade ago it would be generic shit. Valve knows this which is why they'll never make 3.

Shut up faggot. I'm 26. Games can be good in the context that they were released. The problem is there niggers that still hold the game as some high ground for how a shooter should play because muh soda can. The same people that would give their improbably first born for hl3. In the context of "this game is still fantastic and needs a sequel" the half life series is about as overrated as Eva and final fantasy vii.

Side note: my first game was original Mario x duck hunt combo cartridge on the NES.

why should I, when I played Castlevania 1 for the first time 2 years ago and it's one of my favorite games? same for Deus Ex, now Half Life... it's got tight controls, but that's it, the game gets repetitive really fast, there's nothing really outstanding about it

all that said, Halo is fucking garbage, I played it co-op with a friend a couple months ago, jesus christ it's bad
>>
>>322908704
It means that without those things being new, the game isn't anything special.
In other words, another iteration would need even newer concepts for anybody to give a shit.
The kind of fps that hl is, does not sell in the current market but people still clamor over it.
>>
>>322909384
Thats what makes it special you retard
>>
>>322909517
Special if you played it when it originally released.
For anybody that played it in the orange box, it was boring generic shit with features literally every new fps had taken and improved on dramatically.
The fact that you're so rabid and ready to defend against even the idea that "maybe it's not that great" shows how overrated the series is.

It was a 9 in 2004 when it was released and reviewed.
Nowadays sure, it doesn't really hold its ground with other more recent games. Doesn't change the fact it was great when it came out.
>>
>>322897967
Goldeneye. It's 100% undiluted nostalgia from kids that had nothing but a N64 to play back in mid-to-late 90's, so they didn't know any better.

Nothing else comes close to how overrated that game is even today.

It might be overrated. Just remember it doesn't mean it's bad by any means just that people praise way above what it actually deserves.

A 10/10 game can be overrated even if that doesn't apply to HL1/2.

Other than a small group of fans, this game is hardly ever mentioned let alone widely praised. It also isn't really shitposted about.

I am a fan, but I think most of us would agree the game is definitely flawed.

HL was excellent. HL2 was already outdated upon release, its only saving grace was the physics engine.

The Episodes were pretty great, in my opinion. They definitely felt less "bland" than HL2. Most of HL2 was forgettable.

Episode 2 though. Shit is fire. Easily the best Half Life since Half Life.

You can literally say that about anyone and everything.
What are the flaws of metro 2033?

Half Life, horrible gunplay and mediocre writing
CS GO, horrible everything
Overwatch, horrible everything
The meme status this shithole brought to the quake series. They're great games but not the best fps ever made and they don't require the most skill of any game ever either.

2004 is widely recognized as an awesome year in video game history, and plenty of titles more than hold their own.

I'd rather play Far Cry than HL2.

Stalker. I bought it during the winter sale because /v/ can't stop jerking over it and guess what? It's fucking dogshit.

>>322915803

The stealth system is horrific at times. The enemy AI all instantly knowing where you are and firing with aimbot accuracy when you're discovered is problematic. Certain enemies are complete bullet sponges, and the game offers basically no good way to conserve ammo for these encounters due to the awful stealth mechanics.

Is that good enough?
>>
So mario 64 and overrated of zelda Ocarina are not overrated?

The only good parts in HL2 are the coast and return to City 17 chapters. the rest is either shit (canals, airboat, citadel) or just passable (ravenholm, nova prospekt)

i'd still say HL2 is still great though just because of the modding community, but i've never understood the love for the game itself.

>>322917137

>Assault on the Control Room

There are several wide open arenas that offer multiple approaches throughout Halo CE's campaign. They are connected by hallways, true, and some of the outdoor areas are just like you described, but it never claimed to be an open world sandbox either.

People always complain about the stealth, and though it's not a stealth game I never found much issue with it. In fact I cleared out the whole bridge without getting detected using knives and the hellsing and it was pretty east.
The only enemy I can think of that can really be considered a bullet sponge are the librarians and they have a clear mechanic to avoid confrontation with them.
There are heavily armored enemies sure and of course they'll be tankier than the rest but they're still not bullet sponge level, not if you use the right ammo and know where to aim.

Stealth in metro is a matter of knowing which way to go, there's nothing really nuanced about it, it's just following the path of shadows
>>
Half-Life 2
>>
>>322918456
>>322918485
I think it's trying to say in Halo there's a big open space, but you don't have to go to it and it's empty, so you just go to the end by the quickest route. Whereas Half Life makes you go to all parts of the map to get things which will allow to progress or complete all objectives.
>>
Why the fuck is the half-life series some sacred cow that you can't even say one bad thing about without fanboys coming out of the woodwork to defend it?
>>
>>322918641
I know, all of the stealth sections also had enemies conveniently placed with their backs turned to the entrance. They weren't trying to make a nuanced stealth game.
Technically it is a flaw, and like I said literally everything is flawed. But holding that against the game would be like holding shitty stealth mechanics over San Andreas.
In the end I didn't feel like the stealth segments detracted from metro 2033 at all, I actually enjoyed them contrary to SA.

More recently, Bioshock and Borderlands. They're like monuments to mediocrity but people still love the fuck out of them for some reason.
>>
>>322919261
Because it is one of the most overhated games out there.

Not Undertale magnitude because there are no dedicated barneyfags reposting shitty pastas, but still gets more undeserved hate than anything from OoT to Starcraft.

I think shooters themselves are an overrated genre, most of them are the same shit over and over. I don't understand why mediocre shooters saturate the market so much.

That said, my favourite is probably Timesplitters 2

>>322920893
Borderlands is the epitome of "fun with friends" or more correctly "unbearably boring without friends".
It would need to have something good about it to be good. It doesn't have a single redeeming factor - it's all mediocre or worse.

>>322919625
>>322919779
I enjoyed it, never liked the gunplay, so I went melee+plasmids. Story is nothing impressive with the only highlight of the "twist", I wonder who told you that it was great

>>322920893
First Borderlands just has the average mediocre humour, my problem was that its far too repetitive and boring even playing coop
>>
>>322920496
most people that enjoy borderlands can admit its not a masterpiece though, I certainly had a blast playing with a classmate but I'm not gonna go on the internet and call it the citizen kane of gaming or some equally stupid shit

Butcher Bay is damn good. Dark Athena didn't really measure up imo but a third title would be nice, I agree.
