Most overrated ever...

In each of these categories, what is your opinion on the most overrated one:

Band/Artist: Toss between Nirvana and Metallica

Movie: Titanic

Video game (any platform): WoW

Console: Xbox (not the 360!)

TV Series: 24

As always, keep it civil, these are just opinions...

Band/Artist: Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul, 50 Cent, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit... the list goes on and on.

Movie: The Matrix series - nothing more than a Ghost in the Shell rip-off. A close second would be the Spider-man series, because I hate comic-to-movie films.

Video game (any platform): Dunno, really.

Console: Xbox (seriously.)

TV Series: Don't watch much TV, but it has to be Lost, regardless.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I've seen Zelda mentioned a few times, are you guys talking about the whole series, or just one of the games?

Cause it's not fair to judge a whole franchise on just the one game now is it

Band/Artist: Anything emo. Screaming is a way to hide their lack of musical skill.
Movie: Napoleon Dynamite. I wasted four bucks and two hours of my life on that. I just want to smack people who wear vote for pedro shirts.
Video Game: Final Fantasy 8+. I know I'll get heat for this, but 12 sequels or 13 now? It's all the same. That, and World Of Warcrack.
Console: Ps3. I played on one, the games sucked, it's slow, it's too expensive, screw it. You couldn't pay me to get one.
TV Series: King of the Hill and Simpsons. Seriously, it's the same jokes over and over again. As for the Simpsons, they haven't been funny for a few seasons now.
Cars: American Cars. Yay patriotism and all, but american cars are too big, too slow, too heavy, can't turn, and nearly all automatic. All our cars are good at is number of cupholders and straight line acceleration.
Book: Great Expectations. Worst Book Ever.
