Most Overrated Video Games

181Final 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.

182God of War III

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

183Skylanders: 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

184Wii 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

185The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

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

187Life 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...

188Counter-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

189Super 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

190Need for Speed

It's good but overrated and some of the nfs games are the same things just different title like most wanted is like undercover

191Final Fantasy IV

This one isn't too overrated, But fails to compare to FFVI and why has this game been re-made a thousand times. Seriously square just re-make FFVI would ya!

192New Super Mario Bros 2

Princess Peach was the lost princess once again, which is very infantile & graceless of her nowadays!

Same as the original with a stupid gimmick

The coins made for some interesting level design

193Mother 3

Overrated my butt. This game is just good. Who the heck thought this was an overrated game.

Why you people just don't get that this series and this game is a bunch of mediocre rpgs but final fantasy 7 higher than this stupid game that tries to be colorful but the boss battles were lackluster the gameplay is just tapping the botton in a rhythm its like dks final smash but the combos are not needed the complete the game the enemies are generic animals dinosaurs zombies ghoshts there's not much humor its should have been cancelled this should have been treated like duke nukem forever because of its delays but there's still more the game is too sad it's a fad the poplaity will just go and this game has a very cliche story very bland characters like we seen them all before unorginal soundtrack but still better than that earthbound #lamestgameever this game gets a 6/10 not a 10/10 - dinosaur

194Crysis 3
195Gone Home

This "game" is ridiculously short, has basically no plot, and minimal game play. The only thing good is the voice acting from the letters you find.

The over rated politically correct game ever made.
IF you like generic teenage love stories while walking around a house picking up items, You will love this.

196Pokemon Ranger

This game was amazing, but underrated. One of the best Pokemon spin-offs.

Why is Pokemon Ranger on this list?

A great game? Yes. But I am sick and tired of seeing this game on so many people's lists! The graphics and music is great, but the game can be really boring and there is NO replay battle besides time attack modes, which do NOT function well with levels so confusing. Buy a different indie game.

199Watch Dogs

I absolutely HATED this game. Gameplay was so sluggish.

200Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

It seems everyone is forgetting what made Big Rigs so amazing. That infinite backwards acceleration.
