Top 10 Things That Made Undertale As Overrated As It is Today

The Top TenXW

1Steam literally forcing people to give the game positive reviews

How did that happen? How do they force you? - Martinglez

Undertale is overrated. Seriously, the characters are creepy, the fan base will give you nightmares, and overall it's just not a good game

The toxicity that's shown to even mildly negative reviews is quite disappointing.

Not true but this made me laugh.

2Sans and Papyrus

Also, if the fanbase finds out you hate either one of them, they'll flame you and say "You're gonna have a bad time, LOL! "

*huge disappointing sigh* These characters are part of Undertale's fame- and for a good reason too. They're both well developed characters but the fandom...they destroyed it like the Titans destroyed the wall.

Honestly, they're both great characters with great development, but it's just sad how the fandom has ruined them. Sans is a funny and nice dude, Papyrus is a sweetheart. It's saddening to see the fandom has literally destroyed them with overrated "memes" and porn. Toby even Tweeted himself "Papyrus doesn't know what things [sex] like that are and Sans is too lazy to do anything with anyone." Of course, people won't listen to that. Poor skelebros though.

3The game being way too easy and in desperate need of a Hard Mode, which is luckily planned to come out later

I'm sorry, but have you ever tried to beat Sans during the Genocide route? Haven't played the game myself yet, which I'm planning to, but that fight took most YouTubers literally HOURS! - Alpha101

Yeah openly admit not having a game with a harder difficulty is kind of a let down. I want to replay the game with much harder enemies to provide an interesting challenge. I know the game kind of does have a hard mode but it doesn't really last long does it?

Someone hasn't reached the end of any route. - ArchVoice14

Hey. They have a hard mode. Enter your name as Frisk. Have fun with that. - SpyroZap99

4The battle system

It's not that "revolutionary" that they say.

5Cute characters
6Highly autistic fanbase

This is one of the most idiotic additions to a list ever. I hope that it gets deleted. - Alpha101

This is really mean. I have autism and this just... Grinds my gears.

I know the fanbase is annoying and basically ruined the game but please do not call anyone autistic if they are not it is really rude and offensive to some people

I have autism but I try by best to avoid getting entangled with the fanbase...or any fanbase in general...

7Better humor than what you would find in most games

How does it being better mean it's overrated. Wouldn't if it's highly rated for a resin make it aptly rated?

You're right. That is pretty funny humor that you think Undertale has humor. If you're looking for a humor game play either Sonic Boom games.

8Inspiration from Earthbound and Mother 3, which are both also insanely overrated games

I don't think they're overrated just miss judges because most of people have never had gotten to play the games to me way better than undertale to you it could be overrated it's not overrated it's just people wanting to do what they can't do like you wanting to crap on a game people praise I rest my case

The entire MOTHER franchise is better than Undertale

10Sympathy for the fact that it is an indie game

Just saying, but indie games can be good, you know. Well, some are bad, but really, most of them are good. - Catameow

Indie games aren't classics they can be fun but classics are way different

IGN gave this a 10... It's no where near that great. So many better games came out in 2015 from AAA developers such as MGS V and Witcher 3. Plus Outlast is a better indie game.

11The fact that it even got better reviews than Xenoblade Chronicles
12Megalovania

First time is nice, but after awhile and hearing other tracks it does get tiring fast.

This "music" is so much overrated.

Honestly, it's a good track, but there are WAY better tracks in the game i.e Hopes And Dreams, Spider Dance, Bonetrousle, Dummy, Death By Glamour...

They say it's the only route, and they force you to do it.

15Incredibly massive exposure on the Internet

For some reason, every famous YouTuber there is decided to play it. As such, it was brought to the attention of the cancerous little kids that follow them.
I have absolutely no idea why it became so popular. Games like Undertale are usually niché and appreciated by the few people who know about them (case in point: Earthbound.), but not this one. It's honestly saddening, thinking about how different the fandom would have been if only its exposure wouldn't have been so devastatingly quick. - ArchVoice14

16The fact that it literally beat Ocarina Of Time in a GameFAQs poll deciding what the best game ever was

It beat Ocarina of Time?!?! I have no faith in my generation. I am crying right now.

Seriously, go back and play OOT nowadays, and you'll see that the main reason that game holds up at all in the first place is pretty much entirely due to nostalgia. Trust me on this one - xandermartin98

The old, but good games are shadowed by the trash "new" games with "cool graphics"

Actually, trolls are voting to "Undertale" in the Gamefaqs poll

What is wrong with you people?

17Undyne X Alphys
18The "geeeettttt dunked on!!!" meme

This thing only appears ONCE in the game, yet, it is the most sick and repeated bunch of words together.

19MettatonMettaton is a character in the popular 2015 RPG game, Undertale. He is a robot with a soul built by Dr. Alphys, and is the sole television star of the underground. Mettaton is a popular character in the fanbase. His notable features include his legs, and his catchphrase "OH YESSSS!"

Okay this I have to admit on. Everyone thinks he's so fabulous. When really, he looks kinda girly. - lolololololol

Mettaton overrated? Ha no... Even though he is my probably favorite character he is marked 10th on best undertale characters. If you want overrated try Sans but I still love Sans

Oh yes mettaton is awesome both forms just look at that fabulous robot he is fabulous
