81Pixel 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

82Earthbound

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

83Mortal Kombat

No. The games are a lot of fun and are very easy to play. Besides, the characters (as well as their fatalities) are extremely memorable. There is more substance to this game beyond the fatalities than some may assume, especially in later games when the fighting system is a little more in depth. It may not be the most complicated fighting game, but it's one of the most fun and still holds up very nicely. - Mrveteran

Street fighter is always better than mortal kombat

I disagree, at least Mortal Kombat seems different from other fighting games, Street Fighter on the other hand is pretty generic and has been milked to death. - PinataonSugar

Always in the shadow of street fighter, Still is.

85Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Why is this here? I see more hype on the normal world, I don't see anyone saying this is best.

It is my top 1 favorite video game of all time. Re: the graphics, the music, etc...

86Cave Story

Overall, it's just way too easy. The Metroid and Zelda games often suffer from the exact same problem.

Most of the people I know have never heard of this game. I know not any fanbase for it, and it is a great game. I would call it underrated. Also, there is a 3DS version!?

Angry Birds Go... Away. And close the door behind you. And never come back.

91Batman Arkham Origins

Fun? Yeah I guess. Great game? NO! Arkum Origins is really not all that great at all. It's just Arkum City with new crap. Nothing really special about it. Oh and the story sucks. - Chaotixhero

92Temple Run

I like this game... but I'll agree it's overrated.

All it's about is you running from a bunch of monkeys that are hungry.

Yeah... I knew it would lose its "fad" eventually.

So popular, well it used to. It wasn't even really that good.

93Animal Crossing

Ok, I love animal crossing, but it's a bit overrated. In most of the games, it's the same thing over and over again. Like this: You move into a town, get a job, finish it, pay off your house, do favours for the animals, catch fish, bugs, Decorate your house, and it just goes over and over. There's no story, and you don't even know why the kid left their parents to go to a animal town. When you get all the animals, have a mansion, get all the golden tools, and do all the holidays, it gets boring. I'm a fan but they need to make it more interesting! I hope new leaf (3ds) doesn't go over and over. All the games are like that.

This is an awesome game, but I do agree that it isn't as good as a lot of people say it is.

IS NOT! It has different features per game. Animal Crossing, yeah, basic stuff. City Folk, I don't know. Wild World, uh… yeah, the same as the first one… but then, BAM! Enter 2013! New Leaf, the best Animal Crossing game, gives you the chance to become mayor, do unknown multiplayer (island) AND gives you more shopping choices. Next, 2015, OH, 2015! Happy Home Designer! Nintendo has thought of a totally new and creative game. Creating your houses, FOR FREE?! More clothes, FOR FREE?! Pro Designs, again, FOR FREE?!?!
Don't get me started on amiibo Festival, I know I'll be hated.

Good game but overrated - MiaoMiaoMiao

94Super Smash Bros.

I guess you should know, you're probably 4 yourself, and besides this game deserves the fame it gets, it's too good to be true when you first hear about it, bilut absolutely amazing.

I do agree if you're talking about the original game. - xandermartin98

That's right. I did it. Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 64 is garbage compared to Melee and Brawl. The graphics looks ugly, the character roaster is cheap, and the music is...forgettable. Melee, Brawl, and Wii U are so much better. Skip it. It's not worth it. - Chaotixhero

95The Walking Dead

I admit its a good game however it seems to get way more attention then really deserves for starters half the time your not directly controlling your character and your always given hard choices that carry weight which means no matter what you choose something bad always ends up happening. - egnomac

A video game that gained momentum from a successful comic book and T.V. series. On the bright side it's a great storytelling game! (duh)

96New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Do you like this game because Princess Peach is in it instead of Princess Daisy? I guess it's not about that. We don't.

Great game don't care how bad the story is. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Story doesn't matter gameplay does the gameplay is good

Cannot beat a classic. N64 version never needed a replacement.

97Metroid: Other M

I haven't played the game but most people who talk about this game talk about how it sucks so can it really be overrated - Gamer4life

This game was a disaster. Just everything about, the story, the game holding your hand to much by telling you exactly where to go and how to get there, etc. - GentleTrouter

This game should not be here it tells the story of samus and gameplay was great they went back to the basics.
Anyone who says otherwise sucks dick.

A lot of people hate it though... never played it - HeavyDonkeyKong

98Garry's Mod

I play Garrys mod, but I will admit it's YouTube
Fandom makes it into an overrated mess, I guess the person who is the worst out of all of them would have to be venturiantale due to the fact that he is annoying, not funny, loud, and he is cursed with the worst fandom ever.

It pisses me off that everybody has heard of this only because of YouTubers, FNaF, Undertale, or just because someone who played in 2011 or before told them about it.

This game is now very overrated ever since it didn't require HL2 to play.

99The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Zelda is plain boring. For combat games I prefer Souls and Bloodborne.

A great 2d game, but not nearly as good as oot, which is fantastic. There are many better 2d Zelda games

100Candyland

Isn't candyland just a board-game - lolingdog9000
