    Indeed! I got the first in the series and just couldn't accept that some puzzles are so poorly presented that the only chance of "solving" them is guessing the answer. I'll give Puzzle Agent a try instead since I trust Telltale more.

    Its not like I said they suck, I just said that they are highly overrated. They are put on a pedestal & in many people's minds they are put on it so high that it is to the point that everything sucks by comparison to them... which is both untrue & unfair.

    ALSO....

    It is called an opinion.

    I am going on MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES. I offered you an opportunity to give yours as well... so if you disagree, give your own example instead of just saying that I'm wrong.

    I want to know your opinions on the subjects. That is the point of the thread.

    I thought of that one too... I just didn't feel like finding more pics at the time LOL
  • Another one I wanted to do but was too lazy to bother with at the time

    Action RPG Franchise

    Over- Kingdom Hearts

    Under- The Tales Series

    EDIT: Seriously though, I don't see much of a point in this thread other than to troll and/or be pretentious for the sake of being pretentious. I would like to hear why you think Street Fighter is overrated and King of Fighters is underrated, though. I like both series, although in terms of latest inputs, SSFIV is definitely faaar better than KoF12.

    EDIT2: And I wouldn't really consider the Tales games Action RPGs either, at least not to the same extent that Kingdom Hearts is.
  • I can't do anything on this damn forum without being called a troll...
    People wonder why I'm so angry all the time... well look at DoctorCello's post. I mean how is this any different from the countless other threads where people talk about underrated things? I just combined them all into a thread that I thought might be fun for people.

    I'm truly sorry if you are offended by my posts, but at the same time I 'm willing to bet that YOU aren't sorry for starting this thread

    You would realise that I don't think that Street Fighter sucks... in fact it is my favorite fighting series. All I'm saying is that it is put on a pedestal as the greatest fighting series ever made & alot of fighting fans believe that nothing can come close to touching it. Which results in amazing games like King of Fighters often being overlooked.... which is just ridiculous.

    The Tales Series are not action RPGs? Well that is honestly the first time I have ever heard that... reviewers call them action RPGs, fans call them action RPGs, The company itself even calls them action RPGs.

    I would like to stress that this thread was in no way meant as an insult to any of these games (Minus ET & Sonic '06) or any fans of them... so if any of you took offense to my opinions, then I don't know what to say but I am TRULY sorry.
