Overrated Things (Post Your Own!)

Postby Markster » March 15th, 2012, 10:54 am

I decided I would do a overrated things too.
----------
McDonald's (Restaurant) :
McDonald's really sucks, it makes you really fat, it is made of silly putty and poisonous crap, it has too much MSG, etc., one bite of McDonald's and your dead. (Well maybe not that.)
----------
Caviar (Food) :
It is fish eggs, and it is very overrated, not much to say here.
----------
Legend Of Zelda OOT (N64 Game) :
Zelda OOT is a great game, I would give it a 8.0 out of 10, but 99% of ratings say 9.5 or 10, it is a bit overrated.

Amusingly, I think these type of topics are overrated -- they're generally very opinionated and biased with very little merit. They also tend to cause conflict when people disagree with each other :)

Topics about overrated things are overrated? I must say Cody, I like your logic! (No sarcasm intended.)

ROM hacking website forums. Basically they work like this:

The moderators order you to do all of his/her ASM work for him/her. You ask for documentation on the game that you've been ordered to ROM hack. They don't give you any required documentation because "documentation is exclusively for the staff members." So your stuck figuring every f---ing thing out for yourself, and if you ever accomplish anything at all, the moderators take all the credit for all your hard earned work.

Wow, ROM hacking forums must suck, but ROM hacking itself is awesome!

The idea of ROM hacking is awsome, but too many of them are run by the same group of 10 or so moderators, that all hold a flipping grudge against me. That's why I do homebrewing instead. They didn't let me have access all their documentation of how these game engines work, I had to start coding from scratch.

Oh God!!! That's another reason why I hate ROM hacking sites. That group of 10 or so people that run 90% of ROM hacking sites, love posting Pony Porn on all of their sites.

Back on the topic about ROM hacking documentation. Atleast I'm generous about giving documentation about homebrewing, that I even started an open source SNES engine so people don't have to struggle with it like I did, when I first started homebrewing.

Did it have "blast prosessing"? :lol: By the way, does anyone else think Family Guy is overrated? I do like the Simson's though.

Oh Lord, Family Guy is SO annoying...

Also every movie with big red text in the poster and movies beginning with "The (Insert Something Here)". You know what movies I'm talking about.

Having an older brother is totally overrated (Quote from Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules). I don't have an older brother actually...

What's overrated is Family Guy. I have to agree on that one.

Ugh. I HATE Family Guy. It isn't funny, at all. I do like American Dad, though. I think it's a totally different kind of comedy and much more than stupid "flashback" jokes and bathroom jokes.

If you got banned from a Mario hacking website, just for stating that the SNES is capable of handling action games, then you know something is really effed up. :shock:

EDIT: I love this website's automatic swear censoring feature.

Wow, that's insane, one time I got banned from a forum for having a avatar that was not related to the forum, like having a mario avatar on DKC-Atlas for an example, I was banned and they erased my account for it.

Yup, My Little Pony is freakin' overrated. I mean, I liked them when I was little. The first generation is still sweet but these so-called 'bronies' seem to regard the newest show as if it is the best thing since sliced bread.

Hnnf... the worst part is that there are so few Donkey Kong-fans compared to MLP fans, thus, I feel very alone sometimes, and I'm happy for forums like this. Kong-fans need to stick together, man! D:

Sorry, rant...

Any 8-bit or 16-bit platformer that scrolls the player character 1 pixel per frame, and uses a 4fps walking animation is overrated. I could never understand why developers kept using that as their standard, even by the end of the 2d gaming era.

Here is a rant I made, just to get this off my chess. I wrote this when I was angry, and I want to keep this as civil as possible, so I put it under spoiler tags.

Spoiler!
...and the person who banned me was smkdan, and yes, he is the same person who has been stalking me for the last 4 (almost 5 now) years. He is the moderater at smwcentral. Basically what happened is, when I joined smwcentral (under the user name "dragonboy"), I was currently being harrassed by the people on Sega-16, and I made a thread asking for help. Smkdan, in his own sick little sense of humor, thought it was hilarious to kick me when I was already down, by posting old threads from Sega-16, and taking crap that I said out of context.

Fast forward to today, and the idiots at smwcentral keep making "dragonboy jokes" dispite the fact that I haven't been there IN ALMOST HALF A DECADE. They all stalk me from website to website, posting the same crap over and over again. They never realize how much of a hypocrate they're being. They all think everything that smkdan says is full of logic and reasoning, when nothing he says is. Giving out random insults like "your an idiot," "your a troll," "your retarded" is NOT LOGIC. If you want to see what logic is, read this thread. It is full of valid complaints about stuff that actually took place, not crap that happened in "imagination land" that their own inflated ego whipped up.

There, that's my rant for today. I've been waiting to get that off my chess for a long time.

Oh, you know... borderline sexism and racism... sexual references, drug references, coarse language, adult themes...

Well gosh, I sound like one of those "the following program contains..." warnings on TV. :lol:

Seriously though, this is a family-friendly forum; please do avoid being so motherflippin' sassy! ;)

The website "girlsaskguys.com"

For those who never heard of it, it is a website filled with "dating advice" that is total nonsense.

What I think is over-rated

Postby Termingamer2-JD » October 15th, 2015, 11:09 pm

1. FNAF and Minecraft. Durr
2. All CODs post-Black Ops 1. They started really making them bad since MW3.
3. McDonalds for the same reasons as the first post says
4. Project64 (come on, choppy sound, cheat input system broken and malware during installation... use Mupen64++)
5. YouTube. I already wrote why I hate that site on my blog, I prefer using dailymotion to upload stuff.

I agree with FnaF. I have some overrated things in my country:
- facebook ("you don't have it - you don't exist/you're not social"),
- let's play videos on YouTube,
- smartphones,
- get drunk,
- football and volleball,
- talking about politics,
- talking about being in love relationship,
- talking about starting family,
- Playstation 4,
- Counter Strike (seriously),

On deviantart:
- furries,
- big belly, ponies, tied up (sometimes permanently :shock: ), eating someone and having him in stomach, shadow and shrek in relationship, feet and other weird fetishes.

1. Same with youtube/xbox live in our school: you know, there are far better video sites (dailymotion)
2. AGREED 100%. I like longplays but I hate commentary, I would love to burn all commentary which is irritating.
3. Yes. AND iPads. Why get an iPad? Laptops and netbooks do the same thing, don't forget.
4. And the things you say about deviantart are another thing I agree on.
