What I said in the title. Mine would be some of the highest ranking games on here, Rift for example, or Oblivion.
Spore, Resident Evil 5, and Darksiders.
P.S. I love Oblivion =p
Vault-Tec analysts have concluded that the odds of worldwide nuclear armaggeddon this decade are 17,143,762... to 1.
its like you took the words out of my mouth- Spore was dull, Resident Evil 5, I got a phonecall after 5 minutes, died and never went back. It had the two kind of characters I hate, the overly-macho guy who is so far in the closet he must sleep with Aslan, and the blow-up doll woman.
DA:O and ME2
Plants Vs Zombies
So many awesome Indie games, and this one seemed to get so much praise...

Oblivion. Civ 5 was pretty disappointing as well.
I always wonder if paying advertisement dollars really does influence reviewers. I have to say that I have seen gamespot trash some games in reviews even while their ads are plastered all over their site.

Good publications can separate advertisement from criticism. It's generally completely different people who handle those two departments, I suspect. Besides Gamespot, PCGamer and IGN are my favorites.
Blink, awful game, but a fortune spent on advertising- like a mug a bought it.
Red Dead Redemption. Couldn't stand that game. Thankfully i got such a good deal on it, resold it and only lost like $5. Wasn't a big fan of Dragon Age origins either.
I loved the second DA tho
Dragon Age II. It got good reviews but I thought it was crap. Don't even care about finishing it now.
So you miss the part where the Archmage gets trampled by a herd of rampant wildebeast? Your missing out.
Both Dragon Age games, Darksiders and Oblivion. Just could not for the life of me get into them/
Whoever mentioned Spore before, that was really massively massively over hyped. So dull and ultimately pointless. And Civilisation 5, exactly the same as 4 but with very slightly enhanced graphics.

I enjoyed Civ 5, but it was much more shallow than any of its predecessors, in my opinion.
GW1, WOW, with GW1 thought PVP was fun but other than that, bleh.

GW1, I know its an opinion, but there is such a thing as a wrong opinion
There's an interesting article on metacritic about games that scored high with critics but low with users, and vice-versa.
It kind of makes you wonder which games had a little 'extra' marketing money go to 'marketing' toward reviewers.

Oblivion is by far >GW1 IMO of course :P/
life would be dull if none of us had them.
wasn't entirely serious Jimmy.
Dungeon Siege 3 by far the worst game I have played in some time. It got mixed reviews and it doesn't even come close to resembling a DS game. I'll never buy another Obsidian developed game.
Thanks, I came close to buying it, won't now.
