61Call of Duty: Black Ops

This game is so overrated, it makes Mario look underrated

Everyone somehow loves this game but I can't get into it. Every time I go in my family room somebody is playing it. This game makes me want to break my PS3.

Okami, Star Fox 64, Sonic Generations, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze are better and are my 4 favorite games of all time

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.

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.

Please god kill me now.

66The 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.

Can't believe this buggy piece of unplayable garbage is so praised

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.

70GoldenEye 007

I thought this game was really awesome when it came out, but give me a break I was like 6... all I know is "paintball Mode"

The thing that makes a game great is its core concept and how well it has stood in the face of time. Sadly, in Goldeneye's case the problem is that it hasn't aged all. As is the case with every other N64 game, the graphics are just awful. The controls? Despicable. Since the N64 only has 1 analog stick, it makes shooting and aiming loose and clunky. And since the aiming reticule always returns to the center, you cannot aim properly without having a subtle grip.
And moving around is even worse than in Doom or Wolfensten 3D. Again, another reason is because of the N64 controller.
As for its "groundbreaking" multiplayer, unless you prefer playing deathmatch all the time, you'd best just play a bit of Quake instead whcih at least had more variety.
Overall, "nostalgia" is the main word here.

Sure, Sure sure it was once revolutionary, Oh wait no it wasn't because Wolfenstein existed like 5 years before, Some very stupid people claim this game was the only good game on the N64, If you agree you really need a better taste in games. I highly recommend you watch JonTrons video on this game.

71Club Penguin

Overrated. It's not as good as it used to be! Disney is making all the club penguin players look like idiots by putting "shake it up" on there! It's becoming a childish game. I'm quitting for sure. Disney just wants money! Don't get membership!

I used to play Club Penguin, it got so boring. Definitely not as good as it was. The last decent thing in there was the Marvel Super Hero Takeover! Which was alright.

I played it from about 4-7 but it wouldn't accept it when I tried to log in, I agree completely that Disney ruined it, and I only joined because it was 2008 and it was great then, however now all these dumb events and stuff have ruined it, and it's just bad now.

Use to be good in 2006 and 2007

72The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I like this game more than Skyrim.

I've never heard of Oblivion. However, Skyrim is more than overrated. - TheRobertsFamily3

Any elder scrolls game is overrated

Objection! What about Arena? Nobody even talks about that anymore!

Great graphics, not enough voice actors, and gameplay was "dumbed"
Down from Morrowmind. Although Oblivion is not a bad game, it suffers from some very serious flaws. It's not that great as an RPG, nor as an action game. - Jake_Kane22

73The 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.

The Zelda series in general is overrated. I know I'm going to get downvoted by some diehard fans but I just had to say it. I tried playing some of the games including Ocarina of Time. I don't get what the big deal is. You jump around the place and hit things.

In my opinion this game deserves the praise it gets.

76Mega Man 2

Okay I will admit this game is good...but kinda overrated. I like the game don't get me wrong but compare it to Mega Man 3. MM2 feels so easy and buggy and it was kinda overloved. Maybe Mega Man 7 needs more love ya know. - Chaotixhero

Great game, most played megaman games and the soundtracks are great

77Pixel Gun 3D

The game wasn't so bad until the new update where it is so hard to level up and get coins

Pixel gun was good when it was in its early years. The old default skins where fantastic but now it's a total crappy wreck.

I used to play it but after buying the 'desert eagle' gun it's hard to get new ones unless your really skilled

78Metal 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.

Earthbound is a great game and it's so underrated. only a dummy thinks it's overrated

This game is great. It's not overrated at all. Anyone who thinks it's overrated probably are undertale fans

Well it has better gameplay than most of Chrono Trigger, but still not very good.

This is really more underrated than overrated

80Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Why did this get a 113% on gamerankings it can be up to 100% but giving it a higher score than Grand Theft Auto v ocarina of time Mario 64 and halo 1 is just pushing it - ikerevievs
