This Game Is So Bad, It's So Overrated It Makes Call Of Duty Look Underrated, But At Least Call Of Duty Doesn't Have A Stupid Pink Gold Princess Waste And Baby Space Peach, - VideoGamefan5

42Call 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.

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.

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.

This Is When Call of Duty Started To Get Popular

43Plants 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!

44Metal 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.

45Shovel 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.

Really Overrated, But Still a Good Game - VideoGamefan5

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

48Tomb Raider

cool game? yes. best game ever? no. - AymanKabir

The 1996 game? It was pretty good, it marked a new style of gameplay, though the sequels were better. The 2013 reboot? It's like a mixture of Uncharted and Far Cry but with Lara Croft, doesn't deserve the amount of credit it has.

This should be first! Worst game.. - paasadani

49Street Fighter II

To me, the Street Fighter series is just generic, and Capcom has been milking the series to death. It makes almost everyone of the games seem like the same. - PinataonSugar

Seriously, People think this is overrated? Sorry that title belongs to Alpha 3.

The game is a frustrating overrated mess that deserves to be called the worst fighting game in existence. Sorry but smash bros is better

Sorry I spelled that wrong

50Uncharted 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.

Its quality rivals that of Nintendo exclusives.

51Destiny

The game got so much hype before its release with its commercials, merchandise, in-game cinematics and pre-order bonuses. Also, the Taken King should've been the real Destiny game to be released in the beginning. Only then the hype would've been worth it.

I don't think enough people like Destiny for it to be overrated

This is a major contender for this list destiny was worse than halo 4 and was made by bungie too and everyone complians that halo 4 sucks because it wasn't made by bungie the game isn't bad like another game like five nights at freddys but the game is so boring without the taken king expansion pack the story what story all it is is gaurding the dumb bot to open the door and the characters that do stuff don't do anything we know nothing about them and what did bungie promise a good story even borderlands the pre sequal had a better story and now the first two expansion packs are pointless just like 6 levels 6! and its like 20 dollors if you want this game buy the taken king and it fixes all the issues in the original release this game was better off delayed like the witcher 3 not rushed - ikerevievs

Destiny is the only shooter I like.

52Sonic 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.

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

Where to start. Frustrating level design, annoying characters, no incentive to go fast, no sort of story whatsoever, horrible controls, and not really doing anything to progress the game industry. Not to mention the same rehashed sequels. It has an ok soundtrack though. - l12345h

I hate sonic! Should be 1

54Clash 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

55The 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.

56Skylanders

See those little plastic creatures that they sell at the video game stores? Yeah, those are the "characters" you have to buy to play them in this game. Jesus Christ they're everywhere! Also, Skylanders destroyed Spyro.

Spyro is dead, and from what I can gather from this advert I watched, Crash is dead too. Rest in peace, childhood.

People are really blind nowadays...

Haters. Haters everywhere.

57Five Nights at Freddy's

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

58Super Mario Galaxy 2

Game isn't overrated, it's easily an instant classic, it took everything from the first entry, and made it ten times better, and much longer.

This Game Is So Underrated. Well... Only On This List.

This should be top 1!

Seriously, people are fussy about rescuing Princess Peach & listening to her aggressive, overrated voice. And guess what? This game is the highest-rated video game ever!

This is my lest favourite game. It absolutely sucks compared to the first one.

59Team Fortress 2

Maybe it's a little bit overrated but it's still the best multiplayer FPS of all time.

Good, but hard to not play if you want to do something else which bugs me!

Guy 2 before me is to right praise to you.

All I hear from my friends as this terrible game. I gave it a go. 3/10 in my opinion

60Mario 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.
