    Totally agree about Returnal and Deathloop – Wayyyyy overhyped for what because pretty average games.

  2. Jesse Woodyard on January 5, 2022 at 2:48 am

    Also Returnal was lit despite the difficulty, Scott’s just a little bitch that likes to complain about every little thing.

  3. Bryce Dabbs on January 5, 2022 at 2:57 am

    Control just wasn’t that good.

  4. Matt Blank on January 5, 2022 at 3:01 am

    This list is clearly to be controversial or Scott just has really strange taste. Deathloop, Returnal, Resident Evil Village and Forza were 3 of my favorite games of the year and I play literally hundreds of games. I guess it makes a bit of sense coming from someone that rants about Knockout City.

  5. Neil Davis on January 5, 2022 at 3:02 am

    I have to disagree with Scott as Hitman 3 is bloody brilliant! As is RE: Village

  6. balb93 on January 5, 2022 at 3:02 am

    Scott be like: "This game game is a masterpiece, fun gameplay, an engaging story and brilliant visuals make it a delight to play……. but that’s exactly what’s wrong with it"

  7. Thomas Rankin on January 5, 2022 at 3:02 am

    I’m sorry, guys, but you supported almost all of these games, repeatedly. You can’t turn around and lambast these games for the sake of another list that gets views. I get we all have to pay bills, but not at the expense of integrity.

  8. Brent Williams on January 5, 2022 at 3:06 am

    You lost me a village.

  9. D Turts on January 5, 2022 at 3:07 am

    yeah i too have to disagree about forza horizon 5, the barn finds alone are incredible. I am still playing it, love it. Wifey adores resi 8 too she got it cheap at xmas.

  10. Mike L. on January 5, 2022 at 3:08 am

    These kinds of discussions are stupid. Things aren’t "overrated", you just don’t agree with the average opinion. Respectfully, f*ck the concept of an overriding authority on how things should be rated. That idea stifles art. But I understand needing a short, attention grabbing title. Here’s your click.

  11. Dylan Riggs on January 5, 2022 at 3:08 am

    Deathloop is like a 3/10 game. I thought it was absolutely horrible

  12. 0ldport on January 5, 2022 at 3:09 am

    Respectfully gotta disagree with the list

  13. Literally Who on January 5, 2022 at 3:12 am

    Based video

  14. ExhumedXxXx on January 5, 2022 at 3:13 am

    Deathloop 100% most overrated, Far Cry 6 as well.

  15. NOT PRODUCTIVE PRODUCTIONS on January 5, 2022 at 3:15 am

    Imagine if the internet bandwagoned against Scott’s favorite game

  16. CCKaori [35P]「すこん部」 on January 5, 2022 at 3:15 am

    Pokemon is definitely anarchic. I played Sword this year and that’s enough for the next years. Except for better graphics it’s still the same as twenty years ago. They still haven’t even implemented voice acting.

  17. Matt Blank on January 5, 2022 at 3:16 am

    Forza is always what you expect going in and this one is absolutely amazing. I also never had wins right at the end almost ever. Also, how much can you change on a racing game? I guess it was one of the few he didn’t blame mostly on the story.

  18. Icd 9 on January 5, 2022 at 3:19 am

    The last pokemon game I’ve played was Moon. I’d never play the Ultra versions of that, cause the great story was just taken away. The games after are really just like any pokemon hack game with a nice twist mechanic.

  19. Carl Robinson on January 5, 2022 at 3:21 am

    Thanks for the spoiler warning for the entirety of the Hitman trilogy!!

  20. Lord Nuker on January 5, 2022 at 3:23 am

    Except the PlayStation exclusives on this list (don’t own a ps5, so haven’t tried them) the writer missed his marks on this one. And regarding MSFS, it’s a simulator, it’s in the name. If you really want to enjoy those, you buy the necessary equipment, or just plug a mouse and keyboard in your Xbox.

  21. jarren berry on January 5, 2022 at 3:24 am

    B4B is fun as hell in my opinion. Haven’t stopped playing

  22. Matt Blank on January 5, 2022 at 3:25 am

    I can’t get through Returnal but I still think it is amazing. It sounds like whining when the reason it is overrated is because you can’t get through it.

  23. skydaplaya6 on January 5, 2022 at 3:26 am

    A lot of really bad takes on this list. No surprise from this shitty channel at this point

  24. Michael Woody on January 5, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I’m salty about this list

  25. Colin Pickup on January 5, 2022 at 3:29 am

    I can’t believe that you put Returnal on here and not
    Battlefield 2042, Destruction All Stars, GTA Trilogy Remastered and others.

    Returnal never had a great amount of marketing fanfair or hype. Many of the games I mentioned above had serious hype. Dev promises like "GTA 5 controls", fan expectations like "First Party Rocket League", and so on. People really didn’t know what to expect with Returnal, other than "it could be good". Returnal was hard, but it was good. I don’t think that’s overhyped at all.

  26. Gobzer on January 5, 2022 at 3:30 am

    I feel like Deathloop is the only game on this list that is actually overrated. Forza Horizon 5 is easily the pinnacle of the series so far, it perfected nearly everything introduced from 3 and 4 and has the best designed map. Hitman 3 RE Village and Returnal are "appropriately-rated," I don’t think anyone particularly gushed about any of them upon release… Just another instance of ‘Scott doesn’t like it because it’s popular.’

  27. Derkil on January 5, 2022 at 3:30 am

    This list is complete and utter BS

  28. Vallaurian V on January 5, 2022 at 3:30 am

    Well said on Deathloop. I didn’t get on with it at all. Just very bland.

  29. Arleneim on January 5, 2022 at 3:32 am

    I got more salty than i’d like to admit when i saw Forza Horizon 5 on this list.

  30. ExhumedXxXx on January 5, 2022 at 3:32 am

    You leave RE Village alone.

  31. Torque n' Beans on January 5, 2022 at 3:34 am

    On most of these, when you’ve been fed slop for the past year, a balony and cheese sandwich seems like a treat

  32. SammaLoo on January 5, 2022 at 3:36 am

    Except the best part of RE Village wasn’t even Lady D…

  33. Mehrdad Ahmadzadeh on January 5, 2022 at 3:36 am

    It takes two is overpriced and overrated pice of hot garbage!

  34. jordan Embleton on January 5, 2022 at 3:37 am

    I like Scott but this is a terrible list and he sounds forced tying to pick apart the best games of the year

  35. Lucas Moreira on January 5, 2022 at 3:40 am

    I get not liking (or not liking as much) games that many other people have, but calling these games "overrated" is a completely different matter. I’ve had my reservations about some highly acclaimed games before, but didn’t necessarely consider them to be "overrated", they just didn’t fall into my own preferences. And seriously – RE Village, Forza Horizon 5, Returnal, Deathloop… Not even saying that these games are perfect, but I don’t think anyone has claimed them to be, most people praise these games for being good while still admitting they have their own flaws. Scott, are you sure you understand the meaning of "overrated"?

  36. Captain Rick on January 5, 2022 at 3:40 am

    There’s no such thing as a perfect game. That being said most of the games on this list come pretty close in their respective genres. The title of this list is lazy and click baity, and almost entirely based on personal opinion rather than actual criticism… Do better

  37. smase09 on January 5, 2022 at 3:40 am

    The reach of this video is sad….
    Your just looking for something to make people comment

  38. Matt Blank on January 5, 2022 at 3:41 am

    The bad thing about Microsoft Flight Simulator was how bad it really did making the ground look good. I live in a mountainous area and it felt very flat and if you zoom in even slightly close many things are out of place and look weird in placed you actually know.

  39. Tom Naval on January 5, 2022 at 3:41 am

    Scott looks like a Poor Man’s Chino Moreno

  40. angbald on January 5, 2022 at 3:42 am

    Let’s see……negative clickbait list? Must be Mr. Edgelord himself. I can faintly hear the strains of Alter Bridge in the background.

  41. It’s Shu on January 5, 2022 at 3:43 am

    Of all the games on this list, how was COD Vanguard name called but wasn’t actually on the list? The only decent thing about Vanguard is the multiplayer, but even then it’s just a reskin of Cold War and Modern Warfare with old weapons.

  42. Joey Clemenza on January 5, 2022 at 3:43 am

    I have to absolutely disagree with Returnal. Call it what you will, I love video games like this.

  43. Jeremy on January 5, 2022 at 3:44 am

    WC: "Go buy Game X!!"
    Me: "Okay, I bought Game X."
    WC: "Oh, yeah; I meant to tell you: Game X sucks."

  44. Gretschory on January 5, 2022 at 3:44 am

    Editor: "How much do we want to piss off fans?"
    WCG: "Yes!"

  45. Bryce Dabbs on January 5, 2022 at 3:44 am

    This channel is nothing but the same games and click bait over and over and over. 9/10 I can predict the top 5 on all of your lists, poor and predictable

  46. Green Bow on January 5, 2022 at 3:46 am

    RE8 wasn’t over-rated.

    I accept the plot point you made, and there was another related to that.

    However the gameplay was way off the charts. The story good if you do just go with it. Graphics were spellbinding in places. RE8 took my head off.

    My impression was rated at having paid £21 for RE8.
