Top 10 Most Overrated Fourth Installments of Video Game Series (And Sub-Series)


The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

I really wish I could have just gone back and played Counter-Strike at the time when this game and its sequel hit their religious peaks of popularity, honestly - xandermartin98

2 Halo 4

To quote the Raconteurs: LOOKING FOR A SCAPEGOAT?! - xandermartin98

3 Metroid Fusion

PLEASE NOTE: Having tighter controls, shinier graphics, flashier cinematography and a WAY darker and more involved storyline than Super Metroid does NOT automatically make Fusion the better GAME of the two (still great in its own right, but not even remotely on Super's level as a Metroid game, nor is it anywhere near Zero Mission's for that matter)

Also, this game was VERY much the inspiration behind (shudders) Other M - xandermartin98

4 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Basically the Metroid Fusion of Metal Gear - xandermartin98

5 Undertale (Mother 3.5) Undertale (Mother 3.5)

I honestly feel the same way about this as I do about Chrono Trigger and the original Nintendo-developed Earthbound-M3 portion of the Mother series; there is a BIG difference between a 9/10 game and a 10/10 game, and these games DEFINITELY fall squarely into the former category (which is especially disappointing with this one because there are SO many ways it very legitimately COULD have been a damned near perfect-10 game if the dev had just been a TEENSY bit less lazy)

Also, the morality system is overdone as ALL hell, as are the anime clich├ęs - xandermartin98

6 Grand Theft Auto IV

Has already been rendered wholesalely obsolete by V, and for good reason - xandermartin98

7 Super Smash Bros. for 3ds and Wii U

Overall best game of the series by a landslide (even if Melee was by RIDICULOUSLY far the best single-player game of the bunch), but still - xandermartin98

8 Resident Evil 4

Excellent action game, not-quite-so-great horror game

(at least it's self-aware of its ridiculous cheesiness) - xandermartin98

9 Fallout 4

Took away nearly all of the overall depth and realism from FO3, enough said - xandermartin98

10 Super Castlevania IV

Seriously, the eight-directional whipping feature is WAY past game-breaking - xandermartin98

11 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
