1. Gears of War - Xbox 360
A game with absolutely no entertainment value. A piece of crap to be honest.
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 454  Average listal rating (236 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
2. Gears of War 2 - Xbox 360
A sequel to the worst game I have ever played, and yet somehow one of the greatest to so many. Need I say more?
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 559  Average listal rating (307 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
3. Mass Effect - Xbox 360
Are you kidding me? how can someone sit through even one minute of this game? Basically, you walk around, talk to some people, and occasionally shoot a very stupid looking weapon or two............????????
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 387  Average listal rating (211 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
4. Resident Evil 5 - Xbox 360
Horrible gameplay mechanics, just as general as every other third-person shooter currently on the market.
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 987  Average listal rating (642 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
5. Halo: Combat Evolved - Xbox
SOOOOOO corny! I can't even play it without feeling like I'm 12 years old.....
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 968  Average listal rating (622 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
6. Halo 2 - Xbox
Better than the first, but still too over-the top and completely stupid.

Seems to be only xbox games here :p
But i do agree.

Yeah, I only play Xbox 360 and the original Xbox. I still occasionally play N64 but enjoy all of the games for it.

Ok, if you insist

i couldn't disagree more with this list. the only games here that are overrated is Halo: Combat Evolved (though it was super fun to bash people with melee attacks) and Halo 3. Halo 3 is fun but not worthy of being called one of the best.

That's cool "spiderlaw". I am glad you love Halo like everyone else. I just find it to be boring. Same with Gears of war, that sucks even more.

Thanks for the comment

A little bit of unnecessary roughness on many of these, but everybody is entitled to their on opinion.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Oct 16 9:26
I will admit it is a bit harsh, at least for the Halo games, which are good enough to play for a short period of time. However, I feel very content with the comments I have given Gears of war 1 and 2.

We all are entitled to our opinion, yes :)

Well I agree with it all except RE5. That was actually decent. Maybe a disappointment, however its nowhere near as bad as Halo.
Posted: 2 years, 12 months ago at Sep 3 6:09
Can't really agree on RE5 or Mass Effect, though I didn't love either, I didn't mind them either. I agree on the rest though. Especially Gears of War. I just don't get the fascination with that series.
