Most Overrated Video Games


The Contenders: Page 9XW

161Twisted Metal

I rarely hear people mentioning it

162Blast Corps

Though I love the original Starcraft, I thought that Starcraft 2 was a huge disappointment and definitely not worth the long wait. It looks nice, but nothing new about the gameplay. Worst of all, it is bloated and pretentious.

Sure its a great game and fun. But it gets old. Once a unit fires it can't miss the target. Very annoying. - Celidor

165World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

This game (along with the original) is an average at best Mario 64 clone with boring environments and mediocre level design I hate how people worship this game like it's the holy grail of gaming

168Slender Man

Yes very very overrated. It used to be cool but is so over done now I don't get slight chills playing it, Thank you Pewdiepie for ruining a great game

169Super Mario Sunshine

Nope. Loads if people hate it. So it's underrated - Harri666

First "real" Mario game with voice acting? What were you thinking Nintendo?!

Love this game, highly underrated

Not to be a rage kid but... THIS IS UNDERRATED - lolingdog9000

172System Shock 2
173Perfect Dark

Many people think that PD was better than Goldeneye. After playing the game, that is just something I will never agree with. - Jake_Kane22


I got a chance to play this "cult classic" about 6 years after it's release. Since I played it's predecessor masterpiece Shadow of the Colossus before this game, It may be why I was not overly impressed. Quoting a
Review I read, this game is "Silent
Beauty", but is plagued lacking depth. (can be completed in around 5 hours) - Jake_Kane22

Whoever voted here obviously has NO emotion whatsoever.

175Final Fantasy XIII

This game sucks, this is my 3rd least favorite game and I've played HUNDREDS of games across ALL Mainstream Consoles. This game makes me real sick, it is a barely interactive movie, a BAD movie. The sequel doesn't improve either, it's JUST as bad, if not worse because SOMEHOW they justified making it.

It's not a game. It's just a button mashing movie. Good graphics, but really really poor game. Just push X on the PS3 until you win. If that doesn't work, paradigm shift to heal.

Overrated? Come on, I don't know anyone who likes this game.

176Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
177The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

A tad overrated, but an amazing game none the less. Combat fell short, my only complaint. "roll, attack, roll, attack"

The most overrated piece of entertainment in the last decade. Holy crap, that was disappointing.

178Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Let's be honest, the #1 reason this game is so popular is because people can make small fortunes off of different looking knives.

179Happy Wheels
180Rocket League

Good game, yes best indie game of 2015 HECK NO

Really, overrated? I would say that overrated is overstating it. Undertale is better but you can easily tell that people who prefer gameplay over story will prefer Rocket League.

Won the award for Best Indie Game Of 2015...over both Undertale AND Axiom Verge.

Honestly, I don't even know how to feel about this, but I will say that I somewhat worry for the future of humanity, just for the record - xandermartin98
