What's the Most Burnt-Out Video Game of the Decade?
"Grand Theft Auto"
"Grand Theft Auto"
Beginning in 1997 as a British video game, "Grand Theft Auto" currently has five major versions in its series. And as you can assume from the title, it's all about crime, theft and violence.
A first-person shooter game, "Modern Warfare" is the fourth installment in the "Call of Duty" video game series and is all about executions, civil war and politics. Pretty heavy, even for a video game.
Not into interstellar wars between humanity and a bunch of theocratic aliens? Well then, you wouldn't like "Halo" too much...because that's exactly what the sci-fi franchise is about.
Perhaps the most interactive of all the video games mentioned, "Rock Band" is a musical game that comes with a set of two guitars, drums and a microphone. We bet you can all imagine what happens after that.
"Madden NFL" has been in the sports video game business since 1988 and currently has 12 versions. And though popular among its fans, the game is also known among critics' circles as super lame.
Don't get us wrong: we love video games. Video games are awesome and fun and a nice little break from reality. But is it just us or are some of the most popular games out there getting a little old? With countless different versions of the same old thing, there are a good amount of video games out there that we feel have been burnt-out to the core.
From the criminal-infested "Grand Theft Auto" to the alien-obsessed "Halo" and even the limitless versions of a simple sports video game like "Madden NFL," we've tried to come up with some of the most popular, overplayed and overhyped video games still out there.
We've narrowed it down to these five winners (or losers) and we'd love for you to have a say in the final vote. What do you think is the most burnt-out video game franchise?
