When thinking of the “top ten most overhyped games ever” list, I realized that one list alone was simply not going to cut the mustard. Basically there is a problem with lumping modern games in with older ones, due to the advent of the internet. Some almost mundane games seem to get a shedload of over-hype, which the most successful game “back in the day” would even hope to get. The internet has, in a way, made us far more susceptible to developer, fan, publisher, or media hype. Remember, just because a game is on this list does not mean it is a bad game or “over-rated” but that it was over-hyped to an unrealistic volume long before release. In many ways, this sheer overexposure to a game can ruin the game due to bad reviews, or unfair expectations, and in other cases, as you will see, some games were overhyped for no real reason alone.
