Call of Duty
Crud, at my school all I hear is call of duty is the best game ever, get it. So I first look at IGN reviews and it got a 9.4 out of 10 for bo2. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get the game so I borrowed it from my cousins. I beat up the campaign on veteran on the 1st try. I analyzed the game's multiplayer, zombies and campaign. Multiplayer gets a 3/10. Boring and repetitive. Campaign 1/10 Bad storyline and 6 hours is not worth a $60 game. Seriously! The guns seem all the same, like smgs, assault rifles, and light machine guns. There is no difference! Zombies 2/10, shoot, shoot shoot, reload. Gets old fast. But the worst part of it is the fanbase. Call of Duty fan:Ya Call of Duty IS TH best, GUNS AND****** DESTYRCTION MTLPYER IS the BRST AND POOKEMN IS***** FOR ****** DS BAYBYS.
Turns out 7 year olds play this game yelling cuss words through a mic.
Nothing interesting or classic about this game or franchise. Just the same crap EVERY year with updated graphics.
I used to be OK with Call of Duty, then it all happened. I found a rubbish channels named Codsvvag. By what I can tell, 7 year old are playing this darn game. Hell, even my dad plays it. Everyone that Call of Duty is horrible and it will always be since losers taken over the planet with Activison as a ally. It sold over 9000 copies in each game's first month. (no kidding)

2Halo
Not a bad game, just ridiculously overrated.

moose4life19

I mean halo is a pretty good game, probably one of the best xbox exclusives but way to overrated, too many people are like Halo rules and No game can beat halo
always seemed like such a big deal for such a simple concept, it works sure, but it has hardly be a revolutionary game.

3Angry Birds
How did this game get so popular? Sure its good technically, however it is so unoriginal it's a surprise people think more of this game than any other indie game out there.
This is one of the most repetitive games I have ever played. There are tons of games similar to angry birds that deserve more popularity. The games are also released more than once but yet people still buy them why?!

Logan_Wolbert

I was going to choose a call of duty game because of obvious reasons but when I saw this I knew immediately, mostly because of the MASSIVE boner people have literally rubbed numb on this stupid game. I've seen this form of game many times and many years before this particular version called angry birds came out. Its outdated and overrated.

4World of Warcraft
Way too overrated. Not fun at all. It feels and looks like a childish game. When I played the tutorial, I fell asleep at my computer. I tried to get into the game and just couldn't. I can't imagine dishing out tons of money for the constant expansions on top of the monthly fee. My friend's family lost their house due to paying for this game and in game items over their rent!

Lizardbitch

yes overrated and boring game

livinglegend

Awful customer service, and is becoming one of America's most rediculous addictions. I know exactly why it's so appealing to people, but I hope someday they'll realize it's mediocre at best.

5Minecraft
I am a true lover of Minecraft yet I can still recognize that it's overrated. The game really only appeals to those who participate in one of mankind's greatest abilities: building stuff. That's the basis of the game with some survival elements and unfortunately, more and more RPG elements. I stopped updating after 1.3.2 because I had enough of that bull.

The idiots below me are but simple haters who refuse to understand why someone could like this game. It's "a ripoff of legos", yet LEGO actually ripped off someone else, and they ripped off bricks. Anyways, Minecraft is similar to LEGOs in one way: you build. And that's not something you can rip off.

As for the graphics, I'm sure they were beta graphics but weren't updated because either A)Notch didn't care and/or B)they were reminiscent of the good ol' days. I personally like the 8-bit graphics and they're much quicker to load, the game couldn't handle more advanced graphics since EVERY THING IS INTRACTABLE.

One thing I love about this game is how it creates such predicaments for you, as if the game hates you and just wants you to die. But these situations often require quick thinking. Except nowadays, if you have armor, you just win.

All in all, I love this game and its awkward animation cycles and freedom. It is massively overrated as some people prefer to have a goal preset for them and aren't content with doing whatever they want.

Also, that person below me might as well said "this game isn't bad, but the most basic games of all time are infinitely times better"
I don't understand why there is so much videos on YouTube about minecraft.
I don't understand why anyone would like this game. First of all, nothing exciting ever happens. You dig around, fight the same 6 enemies, and then you build stuff. It consumes more time than almost any other video game, and it doesn't even have skills or levels besides making better armor and weapons. Even then, there isn't anything to do with all that stuff. You only need armor and weapons to fend off those same repetitive enemies. There isn't any goal within the game. All you do is build and add on to whatever you build, then build something else. There is no story, no characters to get attached to, not even a diversity in weapon choice. As for the graphics, I don't care about those. There are far better games with graphics like like, and they were all made 20 or more years ago. Yet even with all of this, people are still obsessed with this game. I wouldn't care except I can't escape this damn game. It's everywhere on YouTube, Xbox and people even talk about it all the time. I think it's time that everyone stops caring about this game. Life would be a lot less annoying if they did.

7Halo 3
I take back what I said on my other account(potbellypup2)the game is awesome for machinimas and multiplayer, but single player never really lived up to it, I just felt like it was too overrated for my likings. But there again, that's my thought.

PotBellyPup

Definitely overrated. It was a good game but nothing special compared to it's predecessors

nonam

The single player of this game it's AWFUL, and the multiplayer got nothing special, so why this game is so popular?

8Half-Life 2
The people that praise this game have no real argument for it being the "game of the decade". They say, you should have played it when it came out. Well first of all, the best game should be timeless and shouldn't ever feel boring or slow. Secondly, I thoroughly enjoyed the first game and it's counterparts, and I played that after the I played the second and expected it to be just as boring and dull, but it was actually really fun. The weapons were original and cool, they had more than 1 cool weapon unlike 2 with its "fantastic" weapon, the gravity gun which just ended up feeling like a gimic. The game itself just felt as if it needed to show it's cool new engine rather than do anything else like make it not feel like a chore to play through where as the first actually had good gunplay and decent story.
I played them when they were released and I dunno what world some of the people posting were living in but the first really wasn't that mind blowing at all. Doom and its sequel were better games level design, atmosphere and fun wise, and came out about 5 years before it. Hell they even ripped the story off from it and Doom barely even had one to begin with. That's what you're trying to say is impressive about it? They're both pretty generic in that regard Half-life just flushed it out a little more and gameplay wise was very boring and weak. But it was rendered in 3d so I guess it was the best fps ever made? It's presentation was nice but it was severely lacking in other areas in my opinion. Half-life 2 was just more of the same for me, gameplay just was not fun and the story was as generic as ever
Who the hell put this masterpiece here. This masterpiece is the best FPS ever. Show me a game that have better graphics for it's year, a better story, better main character (Gordon Freeman is so badass), better character personalities, a weapon like the Zero Point Energy Manipulator (Gravity Gun), a wide variety of enemies (Metro cops, Overwatch soldiers, Elite Overwatch, Zombies, Headcrabs, Striders, Hunters, Gunships, Antlions, Choppers and many more, a character like G-man... If you show me a game that have all of this I will... wait... that's impossible. You cannot find a better game! Half-Life 2 is the best game ever! This masterpiece should be ranked higher.

This game is so stupid and overrated. The people that get angry at this game play it EVEN MORE! You might as well become an addict. Also this game ripped off all textures from Super Mario Bros. Hopefully there will be a lawsuit.

Everyone plays this stupid FREE game, they don't know what true gaming is.
This game is a boring slalom through Mario pipes, please add it.

10Grand Theft Auto IV
Is it a good game? Of course... Is it a 10/10 rated game? Absolutely not.

The game got an amazing graphics upgrade since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but San Andreas overcomes Grand Theft Auto 4 in everything else.

What you got first in Grand Theft Auto 4 is a lack of gameplay, the controls are bad and also when you drive car you feel like driving over ice. Most of missions are fun at first, but then they're all the same: You drive a car, get some guns, and shoot to kill people. While Grand Theft Auto San Andreas has a lot of dynamism in its missions eg: Swim underwater, get a boat, hope a board a ferry, get some guns, kill people with guns, and then run away from heli shooting you missiles.

Also, in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas there are lot of things you can explore, since forest to nowhere desert, Grand Theft Auto 4 is just a city, nothing more, nothing less.

In Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, you felt like you can do almost everything, and you do... Meanwhile in Grand Theft Auto 4 you get that feeling too, but you simply can't. Some people wondered in Grand Theft Auto SA, "Why the hell would I want to ride a mountain bike downhill racing against the AI? " but when you realize that after completing all the missions you get a feeling of more, you can have it, and you say "Hell yes! I'm riding a mountain bike downhill! " meanwhile in Grand Theft Auto 4 is like, "Ok? What should I do now? Kill people? "

Whether a game is a sequel or another part of the game, it must include more or better content that its predecessor and in the case of Grand Theft Auto SA and Grand Theft Auto 4, well I said once, now I say it twice. Grand Theft Auto 4 is just a graphical upgrade in terms of content, it has LOT OF LESS things to do in comparison to Grand Theft Auto SA

I'd give Grand Theft Auto 4 a 8/10 but 10/10? NO WAY
Ok, I'll admit that the graphics, story, characters, and other things in the game are really great, but some of the things I felt where lacking were controls, gameplay, and the fun factor, rockstar made a bold move by striving for realism and although most people enjoyed this game because of that, I think it was a mistake, when looking around the city, it can be really nice, but one you've seen what there is needed to be seen, it doesn't really matter anymore and I think rockstar focused more on the visuals and story rather than the core mechanic of a video game, the gameplay, if I wanted a great story or beautiful graphics, I could always watch it on youtube, I always thought when creating a video game, it should always be gameplay as first priority and then story and graphics that revolve around that, not the other way around.
No disrespect to Nikko fans out there, but I think releasing gta4 after a masterpiece like San Andreas was an insult.

12Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Modern Warfare is great! But I can agree, it might be overrated... But the game is still awesome. This game, number 2 and 3 for it too, aren't overrated. Just purely and simply... Good and awesome. And this is coming from a girl. Most boys love this game. People who voted this are probably little sissy girls. I voted to say what I said.
Some people has compared this to Uncharted 2! What?!
Uncharted is an amazing game by Naughty Dog, this is just in a line of copy paste sequels! And for WHATEVER reason, I see this game in a LOT of top ten lists. It just doesn't deserve it.
Oh, When I clicked this I thought it was talking about Modern Warfare in general. They add absolutely nothing each game and try and pass them off as a brand new game. You play one, you've played them all.
P.S Why is Halo CE /Halo 3 on this list? Those games well deserved their popularity.

13Final Fantasy X
I like the game, but The main character is SO annoying. Also the enemies do cheap moves getting everyone killed. Good game but flawed.
If I hear this is the best game ever, one more time, I'm screamin then stabbing the nearest person.

The only cool guy in the game dies rather early, I'm talking about Auron, and the character we watch has nothing to do with the story

14Final Fantasy VII
Over-complicated, over-angsty, characters that are dull behind their contrived backstories. Really monotonous gameplay once you leave Midgar, and everything just feels like a desperate attempt to seem bad-ass. Materia is lame as hell - by the time you acquire any decent magic, you're using limits and summons to do the real damage.

The music is nice, though.
Considering that I am barely playing the game, this game is very over-hyped because it was the first 3-D Final Fantasy game, limit breaks were added, 3-D cut scenes, 3-D games were a huge deal in the 90's, and that's all I have to say. I strongly disagree that this is the best game of all time. I played many rpgs and the rpgs I enjoy more are Kingdom Hearts, Chrono Trigger, and Phantasy star 4.
Mediocre main character.
Over complicated story that is hard to follow.
A villain who plays as a pawn and is really a lackey. That's not all either:Sephiroth never does anything evil either and don't say aeris death or nibelheim, cause that was jenova.

An overrated soundtrack that is way too melodramatic.

Mediocre good guys with a terrible plan.
I mean seriously:Barret was boring tifa was ok yuffie I liked cait sith I couldn't stand him vincent I couldn't stand him.

Lastly:melodrama:I hate japanese melodrama.

16Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Waay overrated. God, in my fave games ever list, this wouldn't be in the top 100. There are just way more better games that haven't been given enough credit. Jak and daxter, Modnation racers, infamous... Things like this are LOADS better than Call of Duty because they're different. Oh, the new Call of Duty! Oh. Online, same crud. Campaign, same crud. Ideas, old, same crud. Yawn. Will it ever die?
if it werent for everyone else playing and unlockables, no one would play it. And people say halo hasnt changed? look at the transition between cod4 to black ops. Same game with different guns
2nd best game ever! The person who put it on this list either has never played it before or has no clue about awesome games. COD4 isn't that bad either!

18Pokemon Red
This game is proof that gamers today think that nostalgia and innovation are the only important things in a game. And for a game that is constantly referred to as the best Pokemon game ever made, it's Nithing special. However, this game isn't entirely bad. It kickstarted one of the most famous franchises in history (along with Pokemon Blue), its soundtrack is catchy and is still being remixed today, and it can be fun to find glitches like the level 100 mew glitch. But is it that good? Not really. It's about as fun as mashing the A button. THERE IS NO STRATEGY WHATSOEVER. Nothing to make your Pokemon unique, and no way to change its stats (other than the expensive vitamins). IT'S THE SAME THING EVERY TIME! I'd rather stick my head up a Garbodor's ass than hear one more word about Charizard or Mewtwo.
These people need to learn to tell nostalgia from reality. Pokemon Red is not a good game. Physic types are so overpowered, the stats are terrible, the sprites look bad.

AND THIS GAME IS THE REASON WHY THERE ARE SO MANY CHARIZARD FANBOYS THAT NEVER SHUT UP!
People say this is the best pokemon game ever. After playing it I have to disagree with that statement. Doesn't anyone give a crap about Pokemon Heartgold or SoulSilver?! No they don't. HG and SS are in my opinion the best pokemon game ever. I mean, Could you rematch gym leaders in Red? No. Can you walk with pokemon in Red? No. Can you explore Kanto and Johto in Red? No.

19Tetris
Tetris is synedochal with videogames, the purest most abstract distillation of eye-darting, finger-twitching, button-mashing action and a game that could only ever have been realised in digital form. Its simplicity and its psychological basis probably make it the most timeless game in existence.

But it is not the "ultimate" or even the "perfect" game: it evokes no memories and pushes no boundaries.

Tetris is only "perfect" because its design is so unambitious that it is virtually impossible to screw up.

There are plenty of games out there with all the virtues of Tetris, that also bring something new to the table, and they deserve at least some of the attention that Tetris has hogged over the years.

And that's why Tetris is (one of) the most overrated game(s) of all time.

This game is so overrated, it's crazy. What is there about this game that is even somewhat gratifying? It didn't revolutionize the gaming industry in any way, that's for sure. It's not addicting - in fact, I can barely play this game for 10 minutes before getting bored out of my skull.

It would be one thing if the Tetris "franchise" had actually evolved over the years, but that's not the case. I don't know if it can even be considered a video game anymore, with all its appearances on iPods, the Internet, and even cell phones.

And yet, reviewers give high praise to this abused game. It ranked in the top ten in G4's "Top 100 Video Games of All Time" list. Many gaming communities rank Tetris very high up on their lists as well. Why? What is so good about this game? It's not revolutionary. It's not addicting. I don't understand. There is absolutely no reason that the game is treated the way it is.
Extremely overrated and boring

20Devil May Cry
I know that this THE game that influenced most hack and slashes of today... But that does not mean that it the most "perfect" hack n slash to ever exist... I think I would understand if the people like this franchise because the people like the gameplay and the coolness and style that the characters provide... But I don't understand why there are people who are emotionally attached to the game's story. I am sorry to say, but this is one of the laziest writing I have ever seen in my entire life! They did put effort on the gameplay but not the story! Not the characters! I don't care, if the game is supposed to be "cool" and "stylish" at least make the effort to write a good story and create well written characters! My first and most important complaint are the characters! Dante for an example! Why are there people emotionally attached to this guy? He isn't well written! Yes he is indeed a badass and cool but coolness does not even define a well written character! I barely know who this is! I have serious questions like "what was his relationship with his mother and brother? " "what was his childhood/teenage life like before he became a demon hunter? " "how and where the hell did he learn how to fight? " these things were never answered! Not even the Anime! All Dante does is just act cool! What's worse is that this guy never develops ( except in DMC2, I don't why he turned serious all the sudden! )if you want people to care about the goals of your characters, you must at least give them time to interact with other characters, explain their story to them or make them have time for themselves and reflect, flashbacks are good! DMC3 Dante for an example has this dilemma with his brother Vergil because Vergil wants to activate Temen ni gru just so that he can release demons and become stronger, now does Dante reflect or talk about the good times he had with his bro? Of course NOT! He just acts cool while wandering around Temen ni gru, again I don't care if Dante is supposed to be cool! Give me a reason why I should care about Vergil! Heck I didn't even care if Dante looses Vergil by the end of the game! Nero for another example is the worst! By the time he went back to the base, his girlfriend Kyrie gets kidnapped and the villains always call their bond the "power of love", F THIS, why should I care if Nero saves Kyrie, I barely know these people! DMC 4 never showed a strong reason why the hell are Nero and Kyrie are romantically involved! What's even worse is that Kyrie serves no purpose in the overall story! She is just some damsel in distress! Heck not even Nero contributed much in the story! He is just a new "cool" character that Capcom came up with! The second bad thing about the franchise is that they too also make use of cliches that was already done a million times and they still don't explain much! Like in DMC 4 where there is this organized religion that is similar to Christianity and they will a divine power (Sparda's power to be specific! ) to take over the world! As if that wasn't even cliche! This was used loads of times in Assassin's Creed( it came out before DMC4 and they have done it better) in Xenogears! Final Fantasy tactics and that god forsaken game Final Fantasy X! The only difference between those games is that they never tell us how the religion works! What their beliefs are! Why they wanted to take over the world!, nothing is explained! That's not even the half of the flaws that exists in the DMC franchise! The story and characters are so convoluted, I frequently go to the DMC wiki and not even the wiki explains much! I know you might say I am overreacting but I can't believe that so many people got attached to the bad writing! They are even willing to beat you/criticize you/even make fun of you if you ever say something bad about their precious DMC! But for now, I wrote this because I want to raise awareness that their game isn't perfect! It has flaws! And it so convoluted that even aliens will kill themselves from the horrible writing this game provides! Before you give me a thumbs down, READ A BOOK! This game really does not follow the fundamental aspects of story telling!
The way you can save anytime but still have have to start from the mission's beginning is counter-productive and a total waste of time. Also it spontaneously becomes hard out of nowhere. You must run around randomly to re-collect thing(such as the lion-stone thing) every time you die. Also how sometimes there is enemies to fight that sometimes respawn when you come back and sometimes they don't. The camera controls are horrible because there are NONE! Therefore when you try to come up behind an enemy all of a sudden the camera rotates and all you see is a wall and you get hit. I am happy I only paid $3.00 for the game so when I snapp it in half out of frustration I won't feel bad for throwing away money. PS to the smarty pants out there that think whenever someone has trouble with a game they're stupid-not the case! Games should be challenging and fun not repetitive and lame.

21Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Honestly one of my favorite games no idea how it's on this list. Took me a year to get truly bored with nothing to do
Had it not been for the many glitches in this game, it would have definitely deserved all of the hype that had built upon it. It's a great game, but it's the glitches that keep it from being perfect.
The game obviously isn't perfect but no game is. The fact that this game is even on here shows how bull this list is. I mean the author is pretty much trying to say that every popular game is overrated.

This isn't the scariest game ever. There are good survival games which give fresh scares to those who first play it, and then there's this, walking around a forest collecting pages having to watch the same jumpscare. Please, play Fatal Frame or Amnesia instead of this mediocre "horror" game.

28The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
I've never heard of Oblivion. However, Skyrim is more than overrated.

TheRobertsFamily3

Any elder scrolls game is overrated
Great graphics, not enough voice actors, and gameplay was "dumbed"
Down from Morrowmind. Although Oblivion is not a bad game, it suffers from some very serious flaws. It's not that great as an RPG, nor as an action game.

29Borderlands 2
That makes no sense. Its coop how is it unbalanced. Mr torgue for the win
The characters are forgettable, the story isn't that interesting and the multiplayer isn't balanced although it has some funny dialogue and it's cheap it's still not worth it.

30GoldenEye 007
The thing that makes a game great is its core concept and how well it has stood in the face of time. Sadly, in Goldeneye's case the problem is that it hasn't aged well...at all. As is the case with every other N64 game, the graphics are just awful. The controls? Despicable. Since the N64 only has 1 analog stick, it makes shooting and aiming loose and clunky. And since the aiming reticule always returns to the center, you cannot aim properly without having a subtle grip.
And moving around is even worse than in Doom or Wolfensten 3D. Again, another reason is because of the N64 controller.
As for its "groundbreaking" multiplayer, unless you prefer playing deathmatch all the time, you'd best just play a bit of Quake instead whcih at least had more variety.
Overall, "nostalgia" is the main word here.
BY A MILLION MILES THE MOST OVERRATED PIECE OF MEDIA TO EVER EXIST!
Sure, Sure sure it was once revolutionary, Oh wait no it wasn't because Wolfenstein existed like 5 years before, Some very stupid people claim this game was the only good game on the N64, If you agree you really need a better taste in games. I highly recommend you watch JonTrons video on this game.

31Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
Whoever came up with the idea of this game should really pull a gun up to their head. This is what Activision does to make more money just for themselves. And most importantly... Why the hell is Spyro in the game?
FOR WHAT REASON IS SPYRO THE DRAGON ABOVE THIS GAME! THAT WAS THE BEST GAME EVER! This game made me lose all hope for the little purple dragon. An I thought Enter the Dragonfly was bad!
Ah, Skylanders. The REBOOT OF THAT CLASSIC KNOWN AS SPYRO.

If you want a figure-based game, then get Disney Infinity.

Sure the originals where good for the time but modern mario games are terible yeah there well built and don't rip off other games (except mario galaxy) but that's only because they are THE EXSACT SAME GAME its not even the best in anyway there are way better platformers out there like mirrors edge and much better kids games like sonic colours there are tons of games that beat them in every way price, gameplay, graphics, story but its treated like the most amazing briliant and revelotinizing game ever.

36God of War
After playing the game and its sequels and comparing it to all other games, I can safely say that this game has the most overblown fan base for such a bad game. I can tell you this about the campaign, I never died, and people whine about Halo games being easy, the puzzle part is mind numbingly easy, and I never could like Kratos, He is the biggest Asshole I have ever seen, watch the game and you'll see there is a reason why I felt sorry for Zeus and the Gods. Unlike most Video game characters which are noble, Kratos is the poorest excuse for a good character and constantly reminds me of Hope from Final Fantasy 13.
Kratos is the one of the top ten video game character ever, this game has won many awards, from its first release to the last one. Story is meaningful and good and game carries all type of features. Game has won many Game of the Year awards, At 2005, it won the Best Action Game award and its designer won the Designer of the Year award, and Best Performance by Human Male award, and the Best Origninal Score award. In 2006, it won many awars, some of them are Overall game of the Year award, Console Game of the Year, Action and Adventure game of the year and many other. In 2009, it became the 7th best videogame of ps2 of all time. There are many other awards like best baddass and several more. God of War game is really one of the best games.
It's a bit boring. For what I know, you've gotta walk straight and press the attack button. Bam, game finished.

37Halo 4
Really? Another Halo game, really getting uncreative. Certain games needs to just die. It should of just ended with Halo 3, though given Money$oft likes to milk franchises, I don't see this game coming to a end till they close down their gaming department, or just go bankrupt. Either Way Halo 4 was beyond overhyped and is much worse than ODST.

39Moshi Monsters
Moshi monsters is overrated. They have a limo, bus, and moshi jet! The millionaire who runs it is a idiot. It's such a boring game! It's not as safe as they claim it to be! Liars! People do all kinds of adult stuff. They are liars.
You pay 32 pounds for dustbin beaver and this stupid game is a ripoff of club penguin.

Laugh out loud I was just playing this it is addicting!

40Sonic Adventure 2
A very linear game that gets way too much praise among the Sonic Fanbase. It does have a few good qualities, and one of it's first levels, City Escape, was well remade in Sonic Generations. However, most of the levels are very linear (with the exception of Knuckles'/Rouge's), and don't seem to have what made the series great. It's how the "press and hold B to win" joke came into being. The music is also overpraised, but then again everyone has different tastes.

41Pokemon
It's not that it isn't fun, it's just pretty damn overrated. Pokemon Gen 1 came out in 1996 and turn-based RPG's were already well established and it didn't really add that much to the formula. To put it in perspective Chrono Trigger came out in 1995 and Final Fantasy came out in 1987.

I think the reason Pokemon gained it's immense popular was not because it changed any of the mechanics of the genre but because it was the first portable version of the genre (which worked really well on the go because the fact that you can pause mid fight) and because it had a really fun universe.
I like Pokemon but gen 1 is really overrated.
Please tell me this is the Pokemon that Microsoft made...

42Conker's Bad Fur Day
Not nearly as good as Banjo-Kazooie yet IGN gave it 9.9, this game focused to much on being funny.

43Battlefield 3
This game is continuously defended by fanboys that can't find better shooters. The multiplayer is good about 10 percent of the time. The other 90 percent is a nightmare. How do you heal a bullet wound with a health pack? Defibrillators revive people with bullets in their face? Leaving people on 2 or EVEN 0 percent health and still getting killed by them! Teleporting out of a burning tank that took 4 rockets to destroy and then killing you in a second, only for them to repair the destroyed tank with more fire. That's just a little bit of the game.
Who ever put this here should go hang them self. Battlefield is always amazing especially Battlefield 4. There's too much Call of Duty fans in the world.

DunnaNunnaBatman

Unoriginal campaign in almost every aspect, overhyped multiplayer maps, tacky aesthetic, too much focus on quicktime events, and as much as they RAVE about the Frostbite 2 engine being so ' GREAT, it's actually rather mediocre.

44Pong
I'm sure no ones played this game in a very very long time, the only reason pong was addictive was because there was nothing else available people didn't really have a choice.

egnomac

I seriously can't imagine spending more than five minutes on this game.

45Roblox
This game is just horrible. The community is basically a bunch of five year old retards. The admins and moderators don't care about there users. Also, you are forced to buy premium membership, in which lifetime membership costs over 300 USD.
MOST OVERRATED GAME EVER AND WORST COMMUNITY EVER
I HATE THIS GAME THIS IS WAY TOO OVERRATED!

46Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

47Guitar Hero
Apparently there is a rumour that the guitar hero series and the brütal legend sequel was cancelled to make way more Call of Duty games.

Not terrible but overrated.
me neither, it's more expensive than a real guitar!

I'm so mad at my friends, they just sit on their tablets and play this all day

Harri666

All of my pals say "Clash of Clans, come on (me) come in my clan, it's called ItalyClanFTW, it's strong, come in it! " It doesn't look fun. I just looks like it causes addiction.
Very boring and overrated

I don't understand how people think this is a good game. It's terrible there are so many ads. If you run out of lives you have to wait for them to renew or some people pay for them. Why does a game like this have lives anyway?
The stupid ads keep trying to blow up my ipad

Um... this shouldn't be here its not a VIDEO GAME it's a computer game

53Final Fantasy

54Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville

55Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
No possible way is this the best of the series, I'll give you 3 reasons why
1) Terrible Habit of making too many Symbolism (cooking eggs? Why? )
2 Action-Cutscenes are more interesting than the gameplay. (It's cool watching, but why am I not playing Raiden? Why should I wait for Metal Gear Raising? )
3) Every single time when you face any of the bosses like Laughing Octopus, Raging Raven, Crying Wolf, & Screaming Mantis you have to PAINFULLY watch them bitch and whine over their emo-suffering, they get out of suit when they're almost dead (making the fight more boring) and when you defeat them, Drebin unnecessarily messages you about their back story. Why do I really need to know about these crazy bitches? It ruins the story. I dare you not to skip any of them as say with a straight face that "it was awesome" in a matter of fact it NOT!
Only Sony fanboys say this game is great because they don't want to admit that 360 has a much better game library.

56Club Penguin
Overrated. It's not as good as it used to be! Disney is making all the club penguin players look like idiots by putting "shake it up" on there! It's becoming a childish game. I'm quitting for sure. Disney just wants money! Don't get membership!
I used to play Club Penguin, it got so boring. Definitely not as good as it was. The last decent thing in there was the Marvel Super Hero Takeover! Which was alright.
Hmm... According to old players 2008 was great. That was when it was owned by Disney. So if it isn't disney's fault then who is it? Meh maybe spike hike I've seen loads of complaints on the wiki. Anyway, club penguin is extremely underrated. Everyone hates it because something new was added. I guess that is was slightly overrated at some point. Maybe 2011?

57Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Don't listen to this, the Uncharted series is one of the best series of all time. Anyone who voted for this is just jealous that this fabulous game series could not come to their console of choice, because this is PlayStation exclusive.
Just because it's the best Uncharted game doesn't mean it's good. LISTEN to the people who say this game is stale. Nowhere near masterpiece status.

58Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
The Crash Franchise Is A fantastic franchise like cortex strikes back, ctr and twinsanity and titans and mutants were very good game. However wrath of cortex wasnt. With tOO MANY VIECHLE LEVELS LONG LOAD TIMES BORING P, LATFORMING AND BAD GRAPHICS WITH TERRIBLE CONTROLS YET TITAN GET HATE WHEN CRASH OF THE TITANS IS A GOOD GAME. WRATH IS CRAP.

59Starcraft
Though I love the original Starcraft, I thought that Starcraft 2 was a huge disappointment and definitely not worth the long wait. It looks nice, but nothing new about the gameplay. Worst of all, it is bloated and pretentious.
Sure its a great game and fun. But it gets old. Once a unit fires it can't miss the target. Very annoying.

OH MY GOD it made no sense it was just one pointless mission after another starring a some washed up rapper.

64Temple Run
I like this game... but I'll agree it's overrated.

All it's about is you running from a bunch of monkeys that are hungry.

65Far Cry
At school there's a kid that talks only and always about this piece of Junk.

66The Last of Us
Is it a good games, yes, pretty good, but TLOU was the not the best thing since sliced bread, it was the same old post-apocalypse plot, predictable as hell, it wasn't "sad" or "emotional", as well as some of the game mechanics like ladders and platforms were just stupid and annoying, nothing revolutionary and new at all. Game of the year-hell no, most overrated game of the year- yes.
It's just a cinema. Interactive cinema. You can play it on Youtube and know everything about plot.
Another game horror fanboys don't shut up about

67Plants vs Zombies

68Mario and Sonic
Really bad sub-series that devaules both Mario & Sonic
MOST OVERRATED GAME
Mario=SAME THING
SONIC=PRESS 1 BUTTON TO WIN
CRAP AND OVER RATED GAME MOST OVER RATED

69Assassins Creed IV Black Flag

70Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Its basically the same as every other third person shooter. Run around, take cover, pop off a few shots and duck back into cover when the AI's impeccable aim nails you in the face.
This game really sucks its stupid
Shoot, shoot, shoot, QUIT. This SERIES is complete garbage.

71FIFA Soccer 13
OH MY GOD! What is this doing in 66? It should be at number 1 all my friends talk about it and it's so annoying!

72Super Mario World
Are you kidding? This shouldn't be even anywhere near this list!

73Soulcalibur

74Animal Crossing
Ok, I love animal crossing, but it's a bit overrated. In most of the games, its the same thing over and over again. Like this: You move into a town, get a job, finish it, pay off your house, do favours for the animals, catch fish, bugs, Decorate your house, and it just goes over and over. There's no story, and you don't even know why the kid left their parents to go to a animal town. When you get all the animals, have a mansion, get all the golden tools, and do all the holidays, it gets boring. I'm a fan but they need to make it more interesting! I hope new leaf (3ds) doesn't go over and over. All the games are like that.

75Mario Kart Wii
Why is this on here!

76Runescape

77F.E.A.R.

78Resident Evil
This should be lower, Stupid horro fanboys never shut up about iy

79New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Cannot beat a classic. N64 version never needed a replacement.

80Sonic CD
Good sonic game but is it really the best sonic game? I think not.

81Darksiders

82Metroid: Other M
This game should not be here it tells the story of samus and gameplay was great they went back to the basics.
Anyone who says otherwise sucks dick.
I haven't played the game but most people who talk about this game talk about how it sucks so can it really be overrated

Gamer4life

Overrated? I say underrated.

83Bioshock Infinite
BioShock Infinite does get a large amount of praise, but I think that (for the most part) it is completely deserved. Few games can create an atmosphere as immersive and spectacular as the city of Columbia. The world feels so authentic yet surreal. This game easily lives up to it's BioShock name.

84Pokémon Y

85Garry's Mod

86Spyro the Dragon
It's ment to be kid friendly. It's a game made for kids. When I was 5 I played these games so much, so much fun, and made for anyone to be able to play. If I still had this game I would just say f@&$ every other game I had and play this game for the rest of my life.
It is too kid friendly ratchet and clank is way better.

87Super Paper Mario
So what if it's childish, so what if it's not the same as the other paper mario games? This game is very unique and very fun. If anyone disagrees they will be thrown into the chokey!
its OK. not the greatest tho, but super mario is still awesome

Marcopwnzatdrums

It's not overrated. I never ever saw it on a top 10 Mario games, despite it's a good game. Not overrated.

90League of Legends

91Banjo-Kazooie
Let's be honest, there is no way this game would be popular if it wasn't for the nostalgia behind it.

92Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

93Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

94Rock Band

95Super Mario Galaxy 2
This game is basically the same as the original with a worse hub world (come on, did you run out of ideas, Nintendo? ) and not a lot of 'galaxy' involved.

96Medal of Honor

97Grand Theft Auto

98Sonic Adventure

99The Simpsons Game
Funny Game with great comedy but the gameplay is crap with stiff controls horrible visuals and boring gameplay.
