Top Ten Most Over-Hated Video Games/Franchises


The Top TenXW

1Call of Duty (Franchise)

Now, before the flamewarriors come, hear me out: Call of Duty was, once upon a time, an IMMENSELY overrated game series. And the fans? Yeah, they could be annoying. However, nowadays, if you so much as compliment these games, you're labelled a fanboy and are given 1,000 reasons why the series isn't good. I don't even LIKE the Call of Duty games much, but it's just become such an overhated franchise that it deserves top spot. - Garythesnail

To be honest, I'm okay with this franchise. The reason why people are hating on this because of the fandom. By the way, every fandom gives the franchise a bad name. - Delgia2k

Bubsy deserve 10 times more hate than Call Duty - RevolNiartRuasonid

I had a lot of fun with modern warfare.

2Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts

Yes, anything by Rare as part of Microsoft will be hated by dumb fans for dumb reasons. Nuts and Bolts was a good Banjo game despite not being like it's predecessors, and people still need to get over the fact that Rare is no longer owned by Nintendo (and never will be again).

I really don't see where all the hate for this one comes from. It's a good game, really. It's not what you'd expect, but if nothing else, it's pretty good if you give it a chance. - Garythesnail

I'm not a fan for this game because it was nothing like the original Banjo Kazooie. - nintendofan126

Kirby's Epic Yarn wasn't like original Kirby. Mario Kart isn't like original Mario. Yet both are highly acclaimed games. - Garythesnail

3Sonic Lost World

This game was awesome. So many people hate it because it's a better game than Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto.

I simply don't see why this one gets so much criticism when it's a pretty solid title. - Garythesnail

Easily one of the best "modern" Sonic games... Does not deserve the hate it gets.

4Paper Mario: Sticker Star

When you really get down to it, most if not all of the hate that Sticker Star gets comes from things that other Paper Mario games have done before. Change the gameplay? Super Paper Mario did it, too. Barebones story? That's the first game in a nutshell. No real reward for regular battles? Due to how the Paper Mario games (and for that matter, the Mario & Luigi games) are set up, you can actually skip most battles in the game and still beat the final boss. It's hard, but not impossible. Bosses that require a specific method to defeat? I dare you to beat the Armored Harriers without using the Yoshi kid. Go on, try it. I can wait...What? You couldn't do it? Shocking. Too much backtracking? I've got two words for you: General White. With all that said, why does Sticker Star, and only Sticker Star, get hate for all of this?

I Really Didn't Like This Game, I Mean, I Used To Like It But It Gets Boring Really Fast.

It was honestly pretty fun. Different, but fun. - Garythesnail

Nope! This Game Deserves The Hate It Gets.

5Super Smash Bros. Brawl

I think this is hated because of Dantems list reasons why smash bros is better then mortal kombat,I like them both the same,but the reasons on that list were dumb - Nateawesomeness

6Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
7Mario Kart Double Dash

Wait, isn't this widely considered the best Mario Kart game and one of the best Mario games ever? Why is it on this list?

8Star Fox Command

Shouldn't even be on this list. This game deserves all the hate it gets.

This game gets so much hate just because of the story and multiple endings (although I wish it had a true ending), but it is still a solid title with good gameplay and such.

9Hotel Mario

I honestly don't see how it's so bad. Strange and hilariously bad cutscenes help make up for the dull gameplay. - Garythesnail

10Star Fox Assault

Not as great as the other Star Fox games but still good. Is not worth hating.

Infinitely better than Command.

The Contenders


*sigh* When will the world realize that Terraria is nothing like Minecraft? Terraria is 2D, Minecraft is 3D. Terraria has humans, Minecraft does not. Terraria uses character customization, Minecraft uses skins. Terraria has 100+ Weapons, Minecraft only has 6. Go hate on a Minecraft clone that legit clones Minecraft!

12Metroid Prime: Federation Force

It seems like people are hating it because of lack of the main characters. Sometimes things can be different.

The game itself is fine, but the main reason it's getting so much hate at the moment is because Nintendo decided to issue a copyright strike on Another Metroid 2 Remake, easily one of the greatest games in the franchise and possibly the best video game remake of all time besides Super Metroid...

and then spotlight this pretty much average-tier spin-off game instead. - xandermartin98

13Lollipop Chainsaw
14Pokemon (Franchise)

So sick of Pokemon haters, they're one of the worst haters and they don't realize how much a success the franchise has been, whether it's the games, show or comics.

15Mario Teaches Typing

The game is obviously meant for people who need to learn how to type. - Garythesnail

16Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Let's face facts, if this game wasn't Sonic the Hedgehog it wouldn't get nearly the amount of hate that it gets. It would be considered bad, sure, but wouldn't get the reputation as one of the worst games ever.

Yes! I'm so sick of Sonic 2006 being claimed as the worst when it's far from the worst. It may not be perfect, but it still has it's likable points.

18Bubsy (Franchise)

I'm sick of Bubsy haters...


It is messed up game in the world

Minecraft really doesn't have a series, besides "The Technic Launcher" which is another way to play modded Minecraft. - BadBoiDrummer

It's bad, but not THAT bad. Not worse than Over the Road Racing, at the very least. - Garythesnail
