Most Overrated Video Games

41Call 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

42Uncharted: 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.

43Final Fantasy VIII

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

44Madden NFL 25

ALL, and I mean ALL Madden games are the same, play football, nothing changes in these games as the years go on, just barely updated graphics.

If I could describe this "series" I will say things like copy n paste, unoriginal, cash grab. I mean seriously are we really stupid enough to drive to the nearest GameStop spend $60 for the same game play it and then find out that "aww you wanna play as this team. Well pay us $15 and you can download it" I mean come on you could just go outside and play football. Alas EA is the antichrist of the gaming industry

45Plants vs Zombies

People need to stop putting underrated games in this list

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

The sequel is better but still, THIS IS UNDERRATED!

It is a time waster for a zen garden.

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.

47Sonic 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

48Uncharted 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.

49Super 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.

50Team 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

51Mario 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.

52Clash 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

It's having way too much attention as if it was something new to the gaming industry. TF2's gameplay is similar and it's FREE. I only like the attitude of some characters of the game, like the gorilla and the girl with the british accent. But the gameplay is nothing new to people who have already played this type of game. However, it's on consoles so people who can't play or own a PC will just take advantage and buy it.

Nothing really new here. Inspires heavily from a F2P game, but it costs $40. This isn't a game you can sit down and play non stop, this is more like a game that you can go "I have a few hours to kill, I'll play Overwatch" This game shouldn't even be on console as it's a team based game, and no one wants to talk on console, compared to PC where you have game chat and mic built into computers.

Some of the characters are downright better than others, whereas other characters don't feel like they belong in the game.

This game only shines on PC, where the controls are great and the accessibility to team conversation is open.

54Battlefield 3

This game is continuously defended by fanboys that can't find better shooters. The multiplayer is good about 10 percent of the time. The other 90 percent is a nightmare. How do you heal a bullet wound with a health pack? Defibrillators revive people with bullets in their face? Leaving people on 2 or EVEN 0 percent health and still getting killed by them! Teleporting out of a burning tank that took 4 rockets to destroy and then killing you in a second, only for them to repair the destroyed tank with more fire. That's just a little bit of the game.

I actually preferred Bad Company 1 and 2.. otherwise boyfriend turned into another Call of Duty with better online mechanics

Who ever put this here should go hang them self. Battlefield is always amazing especially Battlefield 4. There's too much Call of Duty fans in the world. - DunnaNunnaBatman

Bad company 2 was the only good one

55Sonic & 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...

56Goat 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.

57Frozen Free Fall

Oh god I knew Disney couldn't resist spreading frozen into everything they make. Seriously this movie was so hilariously bad that even Atlantis Squarepantis was a better musical. The game isn't necessarily overrated just the movie

Take this off. I don't think it's that good a game, but it's very obvious it was only put here so somebody could make another dig at the movie Frozen- something irrelevant to this list.

59Moshi Monsters

Moshi monsters is overrated. They have a limo, bus, and moshi jet! The millionaire who runs it is a idiot. It's such a boring game! It's not as safe as they claim it to be! Liars! People do all kinds of adult stuff. They are liars.

You pay 32 pounds for dustbin beaver and this stupid game is a ripoff of club penguin. - Harri666

When you log in you think what the heck is this junk?

I like this game, but it's overrated. - funnyuser

Without it their wouldn't be any Pokemon or Call of Duty or god of war or world of warcraft or any video games so cut it some slack.

Maybe this was amazing forty years ago, but I don't know if anyone, even someone alive back then, could play it for a super long time in today's world.

This should stay on, there are much older games out there, ones at least years before the atari era of gaming

A trendsetter, an innovator & still a very fun game to play. Not overrated at all. - Mrveteran
