Top 10 Most Overrated Nintendo 64 Games

The game makers are not blamed for making games overrated, it's the fanboys who do.

The Top TenXW

1The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

You know, almost all Nintendo 64 games could be considered overrated. People say they're the best because that's what they grew up with. Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are both great games, but they are NOT the best games of all time. Neither is Goldeneye or Banjo-Kazooie. Sure some games are better than others, but at the end of the day, it's all opinion based. Just because a lot of people like a game and you don't doesn't mean you have to like it. Ocarina of Time may be my favorite Zelda game, but it's only because it's the only one I beat. And it is not my favorite game of all time, that goes to Super Mario Bros 3 because that is what made me get into video games in the first place. A game being overrated does not mean it is bad or good, it just means that people like to talk about it a lot, positively or negatively, and it becomes annoying.

Hey, I am entitled to my own opinion, just because I don't like Zelda doesn't mean you have to kill me. And I am a Nintendo fan, but I see this game SO much it annoys me and it can't be anywhere but #1. - Garfieldtop10s

Navi IS pretty annoying, but overall it was a pretty much a good game for me. Ohh yeah, you guys are haters and have no taste for Nintendo... That's all I have to say.

It's a fabulous almost perfect game but it is very overrated - Retroman64

2GoldenEye 007

Oh my gosh this game. So frustrating in single player, over-competitive in multiplayer, extremely poor graphics when they could have taken advantage, and weird controls. - Garfieldtop10s

Horrible controls, just as most of the FPS games released on console systems back then. To call it one of the best N64 games speaks very bad of the system itself.

This game had some stupid ai and bad controls

This game is worse than the wii version.

3Mario Kart 64

Here is how I would rate these N64 games.

Mario Kart 64 gets a 97/100 score.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time gets an 81/100 score.

Super Mario 64 gets a 100+/100 score.

Mario Party gets a 79/100 score.

Mario Tennis gets an 82/100.

Goldeneye 007 gets a 78/100 score.

Diddy Kong Racing gets an 86/100 score.

Mario Golf gets a 77/100 score.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask gets an 84/100 score.

Paper Mario gets a 78/100 score.

Mario Party 3 gets a 72/100 score.

Conker's Bad Fur Day gets a 65/100 score.

Perfect Dark gets a 77/100 score.

Banjo-Kazooie gets an 82/100 score.

Banjo Tooie gets an 80/100 score.

Gauntlet Legends gets a 67/100 score.

Mega Man Legends gets a 34/100 score.

Mega Man Legends 2 gets a 39/100 score.

The game just handled really badly. I much preferred Diddy Kong Racing over this one!

THis game is overrated Double dash is better

4Super Mario 64

This game is underrated as heck! More than 1 person gives this game a 0/100 (but very little people pan this game that much score), and I think the game's aggregate score is a 9.5. I would give this game 100+/100 score.

You have got to be kidding. Back then, it was a masterpiece but people still treat it as the best game ever even though there is more new and great stuff. So it's got to be overrated, but why underrated?

This game is extremely infuriating and difficult. But it is worthy of the SMW sequel. Just overrated, and it gets boring. (Spoilers: the top 3 will most likely make you mad and want to hate me. This is my opinion. So if you don't agree leave your own top 10 overrated n64 games response. Thank you. ) - Garfieldtop10s

People shove this game down my throat it seems like! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5Mario Party

In my opinion mp2 improved upon this game, so it's pointless to play this one unless it's the only one you have. Then it's ok. - Garfieldtop10s

6Mario Tennis

Just like Mario golf excluding the bonus modes. - Garfieldtop10s

7The Legend of Zelda: Majora's MaskV3 Comments
8Diddy Kong Racing

I really think this game is inferior to Mario kart 64. I don't like the missions, and I don't like the difficulty. - Garfieldtop10s

I did not like this game. It was like Mario kart but stupider and it was so competitive towards the end. I don't know why this game was so fun to so many people

9Mario Golf

It's just normal golf with Mario characters thrown in. Need I say any more? - Garfieldtop10s

10Star Fox 64

The 64 elitists won't shut up about this one. We get it already. You're too close minded to play the other games in the series because every entry in the franchise is different when they should all be the same.
I've got three words for you guys...
GET
OVER
IT!

Barrel roll jokes need to die. They weren't funny in 1997 and they're not funny now.

The GameCube games in the series are criminally underrated.

This Game Is Not Overrated. Everyone Hated It.

Not a bad game, but I think the plot is a little overused (subject a is stolen by subject B. subject c must rescue subject a) and it can get boring at times. - Garfieldtop10s

13Conker's Bad Fur Day

I legitimately like the humor in this game. Not that it's always funny, but that it's shocking to see this stuff in a Nintendo game. I would recommend someone watch the cutscenes and such. What I cannot recommend is playing this game. This game is beyond tedious to play, and the controls are unresponsive and stiff throughout. Some parts are genius designs or ideas, but it's just brought down by how low this game's low points are.

This game is crude, disgusting, and has bad language. Why do 13 year olds like it so much? - Garfieldtop10s

Then why do 8 year olds worship Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto - ikerevievs

Wow! This Is Possibly One Of The Most Disgusting Nintendo 64 Games Of All Time. I Mean, I've Never Played It Before, But Even Just By Looking A The Title Of This Game I'm Not Sure If I Want Too.

This game is fantastic. A pure classic.
