81Pokemon Gold
82Super 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...

83Cave Story

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

84Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About TimeV4 Comments
86Sonic Lost World

Wrong. Its UNDERRATED. It IS better than Boom through, this is not a broken mess.

First Sonic game, and this is also way underrated. Sonic: people think this game's overrated?! Tails: um no it's not.

Good game, not better than super Mario galaxy. - HeavyDonkeyKong

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

88Batman 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

90Temple 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.

91Animal 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

92Super 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

93Disney Epic Mickey
94The 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)

95New 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.

96Metroid: 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

97Garry'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.

98The 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


Isn't candyland just a board-game - lolingdog9000

100Pokemon Go

15% of Pokemon Go players are actual fans, while the other 85% are just following the trend. - yungstirjoey666

Honestly those people playing that don't know about Pokemon, THERE's NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

Nothing wrong with everyday people actually getting exercise having loads of fun and meeting people and socializing at the same time to distract from how bad life is.

I LOVE Pokemon, always have, but these entitled snobs making fun of people hopping on the trend getting mad because OTHER PEOPLE like this game, these guys all need to shut up.

Otherwise Pokemon Go, GREAT GAME.

I don't like Pokemon Go but I don't Make Fun of people who play it, so stop calling people "Snobs" - IHateDonaldTrump

This game is brainwashing people to roam around outdoors and catch some virtual Pokemon.

But that's a good thing it encourages grown ups and kids get some fresh air and exercise rather than sitting on their ass all day playing Call of Duty. - JThrill

Way to overrated to go unnoticed.
