41 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Uncharted 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.

It's not that people were jealous of this not coming to their console of choice. This game was absolutely incredible, I'll admit, but there are MANY exclusives for other platforms that are way better than this game. Uncharted 2 was absolutely incredible, but it is a tad overrated. - TheMusicNerd

For 2009 this game was revolutionary so to the idiot XBOX people who vote for this play the game. It's graphics and gameplay are amazing even for the year I'm posting this 2016 so you are an idiot if you say it is overrated.

I prefer Uncharted 3 for multiplayer. But Uncharted 2 had the best story in my opinion.

This game is a system seller because of it's story alone. you have seen most of the gameplay before, and if you only play games SOLELY for gameplay, then you might think it is overrated. If not, play it and be prepared for an immersive story.

42 Plants vs Zombies Plants vs Zombies

People need to stop putting underrated games in this list

No! This Game Is Awesome! Why Is It Here Again?

It is a time waster for a zen garden.

The sequel is better but still, THIS IS UNDERRATED!

43 Undertale

This game is ridiculously overrated. I tried really hard to like it, but it was just impossible for me. I just couldn't get into the characters and I didn't like the game. Not to mention the cancerous fanbase that took over the internet and made me hate the game even more than I already did...

An "8 bit" game made in the same year as games like Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5. So you're probably thinking "So what? ". Well, people actually believed that this should have been game of the year! People actually believe that this forced humor 2deep4me tumblr game should have beaten out actual video games. - Mai_sentry

It is not better than:
Super Mario 64
Fallout 3
Super Mario World

Ocarina of Time
Yet it beat them in a poll. Sure it was one poll. Sure, Ocarina of Time wins every damn poll so I guess whatever, but still... Undertale wasn't revolutionary like the other games I mentioned. It may be great, but putting it above games that changed the industry can only mean that it is at least slightly overrated.

Oh mother of Jesus the fanbase is so damn cancerous! "ZOMG SANSU SENPU BONE ME! 1111! " They fangirl over skeletons, write fanfictions about skeletons having dicks, sexualize a sweet motherly character, and shove UT in everyone's face! Oh god, I didn't hate the game but the fandom made me! - SenpaiNoticeMe

44 Conker's Bad Fur Day Conker's Bad Fur Day

I will admit that Conkers Bad Fur Day isn't as fun to play as Banjo Kazooie but I still enjoyed playing it. The gameplay itself was only challenging at some stages of the game but it is a funny game. - TheGrammarPolice

A game needs more than humor to be good. Fun is the most important thing to me.

Not nearly as good as Banjo-Kazooie yet IGN gave it 9.9, this game focused to much on being funny.

Boring game, the characters are dull and the summons are boring to look at. The battle system also sucks. - Sephilin

46 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic 2 and 3 were definitely better. It improved every flaw that Sonic 1 had and gave much more sense of speed. I still don't understand why people say the first Sonic is the best one. Sure it debuted one of the most iconic images on video game industry, but it doesn't mean it's the best one of the franchise.

Someone said sonic revolutionize video games, no he didn't he was just made to rival nintendo's mario, and what happened, they lost, they always rush their games, so they make it look like nintendo stole there ideas

Whoever said they hate Sonic and it should be no. 1, this is for overrated games, not horrible games. And I'm willing to bet money your just another Mario lover and Sonic hater or a Call of Duty/ Grand Theft Auto fanboy. So shut up :l

So...everyone hates this game because Sonic. Everyone is pissed that Super Mario Bros is on the list because Mario. I smell Nintendo fanboys. - DCfnaf

47 Five Nights at Freddy's Five Nights at Freddy's

This item should be removed.It is already in the top ten on the list.

48 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Metal 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."

Seriously the one who wrote this an EXTREME Xbox fanboy

Seriously what does Xbox has to do with this game

Whoever wrote must have not played a single MGS game

Nobody likes Metal Gear because of its story. Yet for some reason, Hideo Kojima decided to make Metal Gear Solid 4 the most story heavy game of all time... what.

I Like Smash Bros Melee And I Say That Smash Bros Brawl Is A Good Game - CuteGirlJigglypuff

Really good game but a bad fanbase of nostalgiafreaks ruins it.

Cancerous competitive fanbase.

50 Borderlands 2 Borderlands 2

This game actually has quite a bit of replay value, Easter eggs as far as the eye can see and not to mention guns guns and guns. I mean yeah I will agree some parts of the story were kinda forgettable but come on Call of Duty's campaign is just the same thing every year. As for multiplayer its actually quite fun. Overall I love this game but I would give it an 8/10 it really shouldn't be here

This game was an amazing game all together and for those of you who hate on this game maybe you should play all the borderlands it's a very interesting game I beat it with all characters and maxed 2 of them out it's a great game overall easy to say one of my favorite game series of all time and it relly isn't overrated because I didn't even know about it until my uncle showed me it it shouldn't even be here at all

That makes no sense. Its coop how is it unbalanced. Mr torgue for the win

Hated everything about it.

51 Shovel Knight

Seriously, I love this game and all, but why does everyone always talk about it like it's the next Cave Story? - xandermartin98

This is one of the best indie games on wii u how is it on here

Why is this on the list? It's one of the best new old-school platformers.

52 Clash of Clans

I'm so mad at my friends, they just sit on their tablets and play this all day - Harri666

I'm glad this was on the list. All my friends at one point all played this, even one that didn't even like video games. I played it for about 10 minutes and nearly died of boredom

Every kid I know who own tablets or android phones plays or played this game. I've tried it once and got bored real quickly. Android games are just boring in general, just like Angry Birds.

Jam packed full of indians

53 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Some of the options on this list are incredibly strange.

I Think Ocarina Of Time Is More Overrated Than This Game.

Most overrated Zelda game ever. People always talk about how this game has a gorgeus and beautiful art style and how it didn't really age, and because of that, the game is the best Zelda game of all time, and they forget how the gameplay in this game is awful, bland and boring! This game deserves to be in top 10 most overrated games ever.

In my opinion this game deserves the praise it gets.

What is wrong with you. Doom is not overrated. If anything, it's underrated!

Thanks to the Call of Duty kids, this is now underrated.

56 Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

If Sonic can run insanely fast, why is he in a car? I'm not a high sonic fan, but doesn't he run at fast speeds?

How is this on here, for a game to be overrated, a lot of people have to like it...

I'm pretty sure everyone knows this is a Mario kart ripoff.

Know what I hate about you people...there is plenty of racing games that came before mario kart and since its popular everything that came out of it, it must be a mario kart ripoff? - spodermanfan1000

Just not that fun...

57 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Uncharted: 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.

58 Mario Kart Wii Mario Kart Wii

This game is alright, but it just didn't do what other entries did. It ruined what the series was known for by making it way too luck based and when you win a race, it was luck. When will people talk about Mario Kart: Super Circuit?

The only reason my friends will come round to my house is to play MK. And since I only have 2 Wii motes, and there's 3 of us, they're just driving away, laughing and smiling, and I just play Pokemon SoulSilver and look out of a window for 2-3 hours.

This game is amazing. Why is this on here?

I don't like this game. Kirby Air Ride is way better.

59 Goat Simulator Goat Simulator

Ok... So I got a glitch when I was switching between the normal goat and the whale, and the whale ended up with the goats texture. It was disturbing.

The game is funny but overrated. Almost every youtuber plays this, that's why it got popular.

OK... this is outrageous... Goat simulator is glitchy, and it's not funny anymore, just boring, repetitive and your head gets stuck in the wall every grueling play, after play... after play.

60 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

I think this game is VERY overrated because people think it's the darkest video game to be created.

Dark ≠ good. Least favorite 3D Zelda. Still great though, but not the best like everyone says.

What? Skyward Sword should be on this list.-.

Overrated, no. Underrated, yes. I don't claim it to be the darkest game ever, like dimwit below me. But it's the darkest Zelda game ever, which is a nice highlight in the franchise.
