381Grand Theft AutoV1 Comment

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

383Gears of War

The post-apocalyptic third person shooter ended up winning game of the year, but ultimately came off to me as feeling a bit lack luster and under done.Terrible multi- player, no Re-playability, and lacking in good plot and motivating bad guys. This game could have been the PS3 killer it was hyped to be with just a few adjustments, but sadly fell rather short of expectations. - Jake_Kane22

You won't realize it if you play G.O.W. But it is just another unnecessary and overrated game that is a clone of the Ghost Recon series. Sorry, but you gotta believe me.

No story, over exagerated buff guys, no replay value and boring multiplayer and it won a lot of game of the year awards. If that's not overrated then I don't know what is. Oh, and Ocarina of Time IS the best game of all time - metalmaiden

That's not how you spell Star Fox 64!

387Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Mario fans stop saying it's the the best Mario RPG ever. It's not. Give all the other 8 RPGs a chance.

Swag kids overrate it so much. NBA Live is better.

389Spyro the Dragon

I like Spyro, but the first game was very tedious. I had no incentive to get 100% the game is repetitive, the dialogue is annoying and the bosses are just plain awful

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.

390The Simpsons Game

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

Based off a terrible AND OVERRATED cartoon (my opinion), I'm not surprised that this is so low. - KennyRulz244444

How is this overrated? iv'e only seen one person that plays this too. my brother, - lolingdog9000

391The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Overrated? It's far from overrated. It might not be the best game on the face of the planet, but to call it overrated is a sin. The worst part of the game was Navi the fairy. The graphics were great for it's time, the levels were progressively challenging, and the weapons and items were amazing, AND you could time travel! Do this website a favour and take this game off the list. This list however shows the credibility of this website. Two Halo games on the list and Ocarina of Time, pathetic. - patrickmoore

It is overrated. you say its not the best game, but have you checked the best video games of all time list?

How is this not number 1. Each Zelda game that followed improved on everything this game has done but you guys still think it is better than eny other game on the planet. It is the worst 3D Zelda game. Critics should look past Nostalgia, Influence and Age, if they do they will see this game is weak compared to Skyward Sword, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask. The fishing isn't that fun either. The music isn't that good. The Dungeons are fun but they could of been more interesting. The Bosses are Overrated, Navi's Annoying, The Running Man is Unbeatable and the story isn't a masterpiece either. I think people should just move on. Ocarina was great for its time but now it is nothing. So many games have came out after this that are both better and more fun than this game. But you guys are closeminded and refuse to change your opinion but you want to. This should definitely be Number One. No game has ever gotten WAY TOO MUCH PRAISE than it deserves. It should be a sin to ...more

Ocarina of Time is undoubtedly a fantastic game. But there are SO many fanboys/girls that attack anyone and everyone who says this isn't their favorite Legend of Zelda game. You grew up with this game and have nostalgia for it? FINE! It's your favorite game of all time? FINE! You attack anyone who disagrees with you just because you like this game? ACCEPT SOMEONE ELSE'S OPINION!

It is very overrated. I don't get why fangirls are so obsessed with this game. It wasn't even that good. I don't know what fans see in it. I certainly didn't see any genius in it when I played it. I'll even go far enough to say that it is a bad gam

392Super Mario 64

I'm surprised that this game is the low end of this list. I guess some fans that can't take criticism rigged the list so this game would not be in the top ten part of this list.

Well, I have to admit that in retrospect this game DOES control like a tank, especially by Mario standards... - xandermartin98

The only reason I hate this game is due to the fact that you save Peach... nobody wants to save that stupid princess anymore. - KennyRulz244444

I isn't the most overrated game, as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is considered BETTER than this game. - KennyRulz244444
