Top 10 Infamously Overrated Video Games


The Top TenXW

1Final Fantasy VIIV1 Comment

Minecraft is a game that is mostly designed for kids or people that want to sit back and relax while enjoying something. But to be honest the game is boring. - LegendaryDj23

Okay, Minecraft is pretty good, but it gets boring after a while.

3Pokemon Red/Blue

Pokemon is the best games that came out so what are you talking about? - hcps-jeffersba

Actually this game is loved just because of nostalgia...

4Call of Duty

Annoying fan base, and honestly not that great of a game.

It's Game Good I Like Game Call of Duty


I hear good things about the game, so I might play it sometime. BUT THE FANS. Ugh... - RiverClanRocks

The game was pretty good, but overrated as hell. And the fandom? Oh my god, the fandom. I CANNOT take a single step without hearing "Papyrus is bae".

Another good game with an absolute toxic fan base.

Great game but it's getting overrated

6Super Smash Bros. Melee

I'd argue that the game is deserving of its reception. The physics and controls of the game are simple and make for a very rewardingly fun experience. Nintendo was made to give us great games like this. - BKAllmighty

It's only overrated because of nostalgia. Apart from that it isn't that overrated. I haven't played it in years. - nintendofan126

7The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Ocarina of Time is Overrated because Of all the Nostalgia and Whining Other than that there is nothing wrong with it other than A few bugs and glitches here and there. - Aguythatpeopleignores

Why would you hate Zelda. This game is definitely not overrated. Ignorant kids.

The point of this list is that it is a compilation of games that are extremely overrated and thus have a bad reputation for it.

This game is one of those. - xandermartin98

Any Zelda game is overrated, I hate Zelda. - Therandom

Give me 3 reasons why Zelda is bad. And there are games more overrated than it. - nintendofan126

10Five Nights At Freddy's

You can't make 4 games that are nearly identical and have them be even slightly good. A game like this is supported only by immature kids.

First game: Okay, Pretty good. Second game: Meh. Third game: Okay scott I think that's enough... Fourth game: IT'S TIME TO STOP, OKAY?!?!? Honestly though, If you're into repetitive, boring gameplay, this thing is for you. What I don't understand, is how the HECK this game got such a cult following.

Scared me to death the first few times but later it's like meh like most horror games. The thing that made it overrated was its unique gameplay, use of creepy animatronics, which is something a lot of people could've been scared of in their childhood (like my sister), and its incredibly complicated storyline and lore. In basic terms, it's not a bad game, but it's not a godsend or anything. - Mcgillacuddy

Worse fan base ever. Enough said.

11Super Mario Galaxy

It's great. But it's not the best Mario game. - nintendofan126

12The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
13The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
14Fallout 3
15The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

I, myself, couldn't come to enjoy the game simply because the controls are horrible. I cannot handle having to use both joysticks to make the character walk properly. - BKAllmighty

18The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
