181ICO

I got a chance to play this "cult classic" about 6 years after it's release. Since I played it's predecessor masterpiece Shadow of the Colossus before this game, It may be why I was not overly impressed. Quoting a
Review I read, this game is "Silent
Beauty", but is plagued lacking depth. (can be completed in around 5 hours) - Jake_Kane22

Whoever voted here obviously has NO emotion whatsoever.

182Final Fantasy XIII

This game sucks, this is my 3rd least favorite game and I've played HUNDREDS of games across ALL Mainstream Consoles. This game makes me real sick, it is a barely interactive movie, a BAD movie. The sequel doesn't improve either, it's JUST as bad, if not worse because SOMEHOW they justified making it.

It's not a game. It's just a button mashing movie. Good graphics, but really really poor game. Just push X on the PS3 until you win. If that doesn't work, paradigm shift to heal.

Overrated? Come on, I don't know anyone who likes this game.

183Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
184Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Not a terrible game but lots of dumb kids think this is the greatest thing ever made

186Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Why did this get a 113% on gamerankings it can be up to 100% but giving it a higher score than Grand Theft Auto v ocarina of time Mario 64 and halo 1 is just pushing it - ikerevievs

187The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

A tad overrated, but an amazing game none the less. Combat fell short, my only complaint. "roll, attack, roll, attack"

The most overrated piece of entertainment in the last decade. Holy crap, that was disappointing.

189Rocket League

Good game, yes best indie game of 2015 HECK NO

Really, overrated? I would say that overrated is overstating it. Undertale is better but you can easily tell that people who prefer gameplay over story will prefer Rocket League.

Won the award for Best Indie Game Of 2015...over both Undertale AND Axiom Verge.

Honestly, I don't even know how to feel about this, but I will say that I somewhat worry for the future of humanity, just for the record - xandermartin98

190Final Fantasy 10-2
191Final Fantasy VI

It's a great game, like final fantasy 7, but it is also heading down the same doomed path as 7. As they say, tall trees catch much wind and Final fantasy 6's reputation is definitely growing quite high. As with 7, it is probably to get chopped down by rabid fans and considered a pile of overrated garbage.

Possibly the greatest game ever made. The fact that it's on this list is a travesty.

192God of War III

Repetitive and easy. Basically this is food for lesser gamers who seek gore, not story and challenge.

193Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

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!

The entire FRANCHISE is overrated. The first game was off to a good start until all they did was make more characters. It's just the same plot over and over again.

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?

What This is underrated

194Wii Sports

There's a reason the game was free: nobody would have bought it otherwise. Yet there are people who seem to think it's the game that defined the Wii.

It was! What better game could have shown off the motion controls? Answer me!

Very overrated, Do yourself a favour never play it

It's good, but Sports resorts is better to me. - Skullkid755

195The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Overrated Zelda game? Well, yes, but not as much as Wind Waker is.

196Super Mario 3D World

It's a good game, but this site believes it's the best game to get if you want a Wii U...no, we have Smash Bros 4, Mario Kart 8, and Splatoon... - DCfnaf

197BrĂ¼tal Legend
198Life is Strange

Overhyped. It's a good game, but it was somdwhat predictable and had many moments of "Wait, why didn't she just ___". Chloe was the main motivation but she was an awful friend, and Warren is neglected most of the game and would have probably been more useful as an ally. Not to mention the endings...

199Counter-Strike: Source

I keep hearing that global offensive is the best shooter ever. It's not. I can think if hundreds of other shooters that are way better than this piece of garbage

200Super Mario Bros. 3

How is this game only at #217? This needs to be in the Top 20 because almost everyone puts this game as their #1 NES game. And people say it's the best Mario and even (I crap you not! ) the greatest video game ever made. Now I think Mario 3 is a great game to play on the Super Mario All Stars. I don't hate Mario 3, but it is the Call of Duty for the NES.

This game is overrated for many reasons, but nonetheless, SMB3 is a perfect game.

I love this game, but I'll just say it's a little too hard.

Smb3 is so frequently annoying that its impossible to enjoy very much
