Most Overrated Arcade Classic?

IMHO that would be Frogger.

Could never get on with it and just seemed a frustrating waste of time.

Any other opinions you'd like to share?

Actually , with the benefit of hinddsight , it has to be the original Outrun.
SP shows just how broken the original was , we just never realised at the time

Im not saying that Outrun is a BAD game , just that the accolades that it stiill receives from many are over the top and unjustified in many ways .

Having played SP , I realise now just how bad the handlling and the dificulty curve was in the original , although the graphics and sound are still outstanding

I too am a little puzzled by the suggestiion of Frogger - the game has great playabililty and a almost perfect learning curve. each to their own though

Final Fight.

I'm guessing everyone who's saying Street Fighter means SF2? I would hardly call the first one overrated.
