Most Overrated Video Games

81 Skylanders Skylanders

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.

This game will forever be overrated for countless reasons, too many to count...
Here's the biggest reason: horrible story

People are really blind nowadays...

82 Cave Story Cave Story

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!?

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

83 Soulcalibur
84 Metroid Metroid V 3 Comments
85 Temple 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.

86 Animal Crossing Animal 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

87 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past The 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

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.

90 Metroid: Other M Metroid: 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

91 Garry'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.

92 Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil 4

Why do so many people like I this piece of crap? - Interrogator

93 Dumb Ways to Die
94 Candy Crush V 2 Comments
95 Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
96 Resident Evil Resident Evil
97 Killzone 3 Killzone 3

The entire Killzone franchise is overrated. Sorry PlayStation fanboys, but I never liked your crappy Dutch Halo/Medal of Honor clone.

98 Destiny Destiny

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.
