Most Overrated Nintendo Games of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Wii Sports

Is Wii sports overrated? Most people that owns a Wii has the game but I don't see people speaking good about it Wii sports resort was better

2The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Nope, just because this game or any game is criticized does not mean that it's not overrated. I am a proud owner of not this game but most Nintendo consoles and I can see how overrated this game is. People always say that Ocarina of Time is the best game of all time but there is a lot that they hate about it too. Changing boots in the Water Temple, Navi, etc. It's a good game, don't get me wrong, but the fans need to realize that it's not the best game anymore.

Some people don't understand that this is the greatest game of all time!

I love the legend of zelda and all but this game gets too much credit. The series offers much more and greater games than this. Personally Majoras mask is the best game of all time.

This is not overrated

It doesn't matter what boss it has, that has nothing to do with being overrated. It is factually not overrated because it sold poorly.

Too boring. I got to happy town or whatever after about 7 hours and the plot really didn't progress yet. It's not well made.

Why does everybody like earthbound it's so boring - ikerevievs

It's a good game, but I personally prefer it's sequel, Mother 3.

4Super Smash Bros N64

It's the most underrated smash bros.

The original 12 stuff make it overrated - ikerevievs

5Super Mario 64

This game isn't criticized nearly enough because it's Mario. But let's remember that not all highly acclaimed games aren't without flaws. Archaic camera control, the most basic and bland level designs, and let's not forget the N64 controller's clunky and stiff movements. Also, am I the only person who thinks this is the weakest performance of the Koopa king?

9The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This game honestly doesn't get enough attention, it's definitely not operated and is an outstanding game.

10Super Smash Bros. Melee

By far the most overrated game in the series. Can we PLEASE stop complaining about how Fox is no longer the top-tier character that you don't even have to try in order to be good with? Or how you can't wavedash or wave-shine anymore, for that matter? - xandermartin98

Big whoop, everyone loves melee

Ssbm is the most overrated game ever all the fans do is complain about the newer games - ikerevievs

The Newcomers

?Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Everyone acts like it's the BEST Mario game, it's only because it's an rpg

The Contenders

11The Legend of Zelda

Nah. You just can't beat the game so you're mad at it.

12Super Mario Sunshine
13Star Fox 64

Dear Star Fox 64 elitists,

This list is literally crap, yeah. That was my one reason to comment

20Mega Man 2

Great game, but not the best and not the hardest one not even on expert mode! I think the first Mega Man was harder than this one.
