    What is one thing you think is overrated?

    It can be anything you'd like.

    I find that a lot of what is popular in "mainstream" tends to be overrated to me. From fast food places like Taco Bell, to cringe worth music by Drake, then all those movies that just promote being a moron... lol I am quite the party pooper.

    I'd say for me, mainstream music is highly overrated. You can find far better music browsing on Youtube or looking at underground publications. Even self-producing artists make some beautiful music these days.

    Kanye West is overrated by leaps and bounds. IMO, his music is okay at best and it doesn't help that he thinks he's God's gift to humanity to boot. His exploits are well documented so just google if you been living under a rock for the last 15 years.

    Online reviewers, especially the ones you see on Channel Awesome.

    Ever since the Angry Video Game nerd became big, there were folks coming out that tried to copy his schtick. When they go into a review, they don't even give it a fair shake a lot of the time. It's either nitpicking or bashing for the sake of bashing. Spoony is especially bad about this because, well, we know what his opinion on something is going to be %98 of the time; it's shit, it's dumb, it's retarded blah blah blah. Certain reviewers would even try to include skits into their reviews that are more cringey than funny. The only online reviewers I turn to these days is Red Letter Media, specifically Half in The Bag. Yes, they do skits too but at least they don't do nothing but bash the movie and gives credit where credit is due and, while I wont always agree with them, they at least give fair reviews or I can see where they are coming from.

    Marvel Movies. Lol. To be fair, they are well put-together movies, but the majority of them feel like extended stories from a Saturday morning cartoon, rather than a feature picture. My personal favorites are Iron Man 1, Dr. Strange, and GotG. But even then, thay have a lot of flaws, and as a general rule, I don't see why they command so much hype. Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age.
    Life is demanding, without understanding.

    I can think of a few anime I'd consider overrated, one of them being Trigun. Many people say the tone shift was when it jumped the shark and stopped being fun, but for me that's when the show actually became watchable in the first place and started living up to the hype. The first half was full of really lame and cringeworthy attempts at humour, with the same jokes which weren't that funny the first time being repeated every episode. Had it continued like that through to the end I probably would have ended up hating it and deemed it overrated puerile nonsense, but the second half was really cool with its deep themes and moral complexity, and when you finally understand Vash's motivations it retroactively makes the first half much better.

    Haruhi has to be the most overrated anime ever made. One funny episode (the one where they're filming the home-made movie for the culture festival) among 13 really bad and unfunny ones.

    A non-anime example would be Pulp Fiction. I watched that movie the other day and I don't see what's so great about it. A few of the scenes with Jackson and Travolta are cool/funny, and I liked the one with Bruce Willis saving that other guy from the hillbilly rapists, but besides that I thought it was really boring and mediocre.

    As for games, The Last of Us. Nothing else comes close.

    BLASPHEMY!!! Hahahaha it's your opinion. I can't argue with your opinion

    Animes they are as follows: Bleach, One Piece, and Inuyasha. Mainly because they have so many god damn episodes and drag on. I hate filler episodes, either make a meaningful series that is short but every episode is important and well thought out, or do nothing at all.

    Games: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Final Fantasy X, Fallout Games, Elder Scrolls Series, and World Of Warcraft. Minus Fallout, I have played all of these games and can not see what the bid deal is for the hype and praise these games get. I got bored within the first hour of playing WoW and the Elder Scrolls games. Final Fantasy X inhibited so much exploration that I feel this is where FFXIII got its corridor story mechanics from.

    And god help me with Skyward Sword. That game is a friggin' train wreck.

    I'm just not a fan of wasting time or padding of a game if the time wasted isn't fun. I'm all for exploration and doing quests, as long as they are fun to do. Otherwise I feel that they elongated the game just to get you to feel that this is a long game or that it has a lot of options of things to do even if those things are repetitious and weren't thought through entirely.

    Most Moe "cute-little-girls-doing-nothing" anime. Yup, I said it. And juuuuust to show I'm not completely bashing an entire aesthetic or genre, I actually quite enjoyed Azumanga Daioh. I like slice-of-life now and then, but so much of popular Moe out there within the last ohhhh 10+ years (give or take) is just too pandering for me to stomach (among other cringe-worthy things, which is territory I don't want to wander into right now lol,we all know what I'm talkin' about).

    I mean, I don't mean to sound judgmental, but I see some stuff in bits and pieces as .gifs or memes or screencaps and think "Who is this for?" Seriously. Isn't there only so much banality a person can tolerate?

    So yeah haha, all imo obviously. And not trying to bash, juuuuust sayin...it's been "overrated" for a while now in the anime-viewing realm, to say the least.

    Here's a clue...

    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    So you think Outlaw Star is overrated? I kid, I kid.

    Example:

    I hear you there about the Last of Us. I haven't played it myself, but I've seen gameplay footage of it and it doesn't offer anything different from all the other zombie survival horror games that have come...speaking of zombies, that's another thing I find overrated. Sure, Resident Evil is fine and dandy and I like Romero's Dead trilogy but no one can shut the hell up about zombies. What especially annoys me are the ones who take it deadly seriously and actually come up with plans in case a zombie apocalypse happen which will occur...never. I even remember a friend of mine tried to convince that a zombie apocalypse can happen. You have no idea how hard it was to resist the urge to punch him.
