Most Overrated Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Call of Duty

After having to repeatedly watch the Ad for Uncharted on YouTube it reminded me of how sick I am of these Next Gen games. I miss the old days of gaming with games like sonic the hedgehog, super Mario, and super smash bros, now we're stuck in the stupid age of video games, why? Because they're all just stupid first person shooters now. I have no desire to buy an Xbox one, PlayStation 4 or any of the generic crappy games they have, this reason is why I've almost completely stopped playing video games. All next Gen games and consoles need to go die in a fire and we need to bring back the awesome old games

The thing that I hate about this game is the design. Why can't we have a well made, UNIQUE game that challenges us? Five nights at Freddy's has been hated on as well, but that's because the horror is a particular style. SL was a really refreshing change for the series, but people still hate on it for not having the ability to move around, maybe you should actually play the game! This game is so much worse. Why can't they change up the series?! Honestly I haven't played it, but watching my friends play it looks so repetitive! And the games don't change. We need different maps, different, weapons, and different mechanics! And maybe just a touch of creativity? I understand if you like this game, and this is totally my opinion, feel free to like what you want, but this is my opinion.

Call of Duty is basically an interactive movie. And for a movie, the gameplay is ok. But the most important thing is story. Most of Call of Duty games are just mindless popcorn blockbuster. Black Ops 1+2 were great, but the rest of the series are mediocre games. But, what bugs me is that how people say that 1st, 2nd and 4th games are better than others. They're not. Some people tell me, you should've played it when it came out. I did. I remember the time it came out, it was nothing special for me even then. Treyarch at least tries to do something different, darker and story-based, but all the IW games are awful.

Something is wrong with this list. Call of Duty should be third, but Super Mario Bros. Should surely be first, followed by The Legend of Zelda. Everyone likes Mario more than Call of Duty, and the Mario fanboys are crazy as anything. They will protect their precious Nintendo with their lives and will make lists about all the shortcomings of lesser games, but if Nintendo is attacked they will go insane. Example: the list Top Ten Reasons to Hate Nintendo. Then the same people go and complain about not being able to express their opinions.

2 Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

I used to be OBSESSED with Minecraft, I still kind of like it, but I definitely think it's overrated.
Survival mode gets a little boring after a while, and while, yes, creative mode is fun to get...well...creative! But, I'm not the best builder, and once you're done with it, what do you do except show it off to your friends, and just stare at it, endlessly using the features you might've happened to add into it.
And don't tell me "Dude, get mods, and you'll have more fun." I WISH I could do that. All the mods and maps and stuff I see YouTubers showing off is on PC, I play it on an Xbox, I don't even have a PC, I have a Laptop, with only dumb rip-offs in the App Store. I CAN buy and check out some maps and stuff in the MarketPlace, but still.
Minecraft is definitely fun, but it's really overrated.

I don't understand why anyone would like this game. First of all, nothing exciting ever happens. You dig around, fight the same 6 enemies, and then you build stuff. It consumes more time than almost any other video game, and it doesn't even have skills or levels besides making better armor and weapons. Even then, there isn't anything to do with all that stuff. You only need armor and weapons to fend off those same repetitive enemies. There isn't any goal within the game. All you do is build and add on to whatever you build, then build something else. There is no story, no characters to get attached to, not even a diversity in weapon choice. As for the graphics, I don't care about those. There are far better games with graphics like like, and they were all made 20 or more years ago. Yet even with all of this, people are still obsessed with this game. I wouldn't care except I can't escape this damn game. It's everywhere on YouTube, Xbox and people even talk about it all the time. I ...more

I honestly don't understand how this got so popular. I own the game on my laptop, but barely play it. I don't even understand how people make a profession out of it. I feel it's just boring, you can't do much. You get items to survive and fight monsters. It's pretty generic in my eyes. Then you fight the boss, which I've never actually done, so I can't say much. I've known people to complete this game in a few days. There aren't any side quests/missions either, so you're just back to square one after that. It lacks variation and has a terrible fanbase. There are still people in my class obsessing over it like twelve year olds' and singing parodies of songs. Makes me cringe.

This game is actually a great game. There are some things I like about the game but that was in the past. Before Minecraft started becoming more 'kid' friendly, I actually enjoyed the game. But time has passed now and there is nothing interesting anymore about this game. Think about it. With all the YouTube videos posted on the internet, you can say that 30% of these videos come from kids that aren't even past 18 year olds. Some videos are parodies which completely ruin the game for me. I've stopped playing the game now that people are now starting to build more and more and are focusing less on survival tactics. If this continues, Minecraft will begin to go away from survival and be more like a Sims game.

3 Fortnite Fortnite Product Image

I remember the hype of Fortnite's peak in 2018. Oh god... it was so annoying to having to listen about it everywhere, any time. I heard it every second in class, at lunch time, on the bus, on the internet, on YouTube, even in atoms. I tried the game once, and it was awful in my opinion. I don't see the hype back then. All you really do is, get guns, try to be the last man standing, and buy new characters. Not original, I am pretty sure there were games similar to this on Roblox made before, even outside of Roblox.

I was going to vote for Call of Duty, but then I saw this. This game is only famous for being famous. I asked a friend why he likes Fortnite so much, and he said it's so he can fit in. I have nothing against people who like Fortnite, but I seriously doubt anyone would like it this much if it wasn't considered cool. I tried to get into this, but I couldn't. I thought it was so boring. It's average at best, and the seasons are nothing more than cosmetics. I didn't like Mortal Kombat's Kombat Pack or Street Fighter V's seasons, but at least they added something important to the game. I can find fun in games like Cheetahmen, but I don't find Fortnite fun at all.

The game's not terrible by any means, it's just overrated. I have a blast shooting up dudes with the graphics and the fact it's that makes it so accessible. The fact it's free is also the reason people like it so much. You're not losing anything for playing it. But, by no stretch of the imagination is it as good as people say it is.

I can almost guarantee that it's only as popular as it is because it's free. If it wasn't it would just be another shoot 'em up. And don't even get me started on kids. I have ACTUALLY heard someone say that it is the best game EVER at school. What the Hell's Ocarina of Time? Fortnite's the best ever!

I just want to clarify that just because a game's overrated doesn't mean it's bad. Fortnite's not bad.

Trash nowadays, YouTubers basically praise Chapter Two S7 for being "the best season ever" how?!?! The only redeeming quality is the new weapons that were OP, and the UFO's are f- -king annoying! This game doesn't deserve the respect it gets

4 Angry Birds Angry Birds Product Image

Angry Birds was a fun, simple game at first... But then it happened... The Angry Birds movie came out. While the movie it's self was enjoyable, ever since then, the franchise has become over saturated. Every single type of mobile game has been given an Angry Birds coat of paint. Every time I use my phone, I am attacked with ads for one of the new Angry Birds games, (done in the post-movie art style of course) which are always crap. Why can't they just update the old games with new content and leave it at that, no one wants to buy their stupid toys. If someone were to go pull out the Master Sword to travel seven years into the future, I swear the first thing they will see is a huge sign advertising the sixth installment into the Angry Birds cinematic universe!

Ruined by one of the games on this list called Fortnite. Why? Well, at the end of the second movie based off this video game series, Chuck the fast yellow bird is seen doing the hype dance from Fortnite. Because of Fortnite ruining Angry Birds; one of my childhood favourite games, I have never played it ever again since. Fortnite is my least favourite game. Keep in mind that movie was made by the same company as the Emoji Movie, in which it also got indirectly ruined for me by Chuck hyping or made even worse for some other people since they hate both Emoji movie and Fortnite. Fortnite in fact ruins childhoods, nowhoods or entire lives.

I don't play Angry Birds that much anymore. I'm starting to realize that Rovio only makes Angry Birds. Yes, it's true that they made Juice Cubes, Amazing Alex, The Croods, Tiny Theif & Retry, but there's only one game in each franchise. Do you see what I'm talking about? I think it's time for Rovio to work for another company. They're showing an example of what would happen if Nintendo only worked on Mario. Speaking of Nintendo, I'm going to decide whether Rovio should be bought by Nintendo, or not. Although, I think they should.

I mean it's just really stupid there making a movie about it, that doesn't even make sense. As for the actual game I mean it's really just kinda stupid, nothing addicting, what did the pigs do to deserve to die, why are these birds angry. It's not even really addicting cause half the time you hit the structures in the only logical place that they SHOULD fall down but they don't even get phased.

5 Five Nights at Freddy's Five Nights at Freddy's Product Image

I am kind of a Fnaf fan, but it's mostly because I find the story behind it interesting, (come to think of it, the story is probably the reason it's so popular) and I read the books. But I really don't like the game itself. it's SO BORING! You just sit, in one spot, check the cameras, turn on the lights, close the doors, repeat. Fnaf 2 is just a brain-sweating glob of multitasking, Fnaf 3 is the just as brain - melting as its predecessor, and Fnaf 4 is, OK. The next two games are good.
This series is interesting, but very overrated, and with the announcement of a 7th game and the rumored movie, this franchise isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Although the new Security Breach rekindled my like for FNAF, I still think it's a bit overrated. No offense to ANY FNAF fangirl/fanboy! I just don't enjoy the lore as much as Salad Fingers (A fandom and show that should gain more attention). Plus, the first 2 games were...basic. Don't get me wrong, FNAF has come a long way and has developed, too, and for good reason. It's just that there are better horror stuff out there. There's Salad Fingers, IT, Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared, Creepypastas, SAW, Friday the 13th, Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street, and so much more.

Again, it's not a bad game at all, in fact, this was my favorite horror game when I was 10! And I do agree that some of the animatronics (especially in Security Breach) are pretty cool looking, my favorites being Springtrap, Sundrop, Moondrop, and Roxxane Wolf. I just, once again, don't like it as much as Salad Fingers when it comes to horror.

Fans of FNAF, if you absolutely love the game series, I understand, ...more

Five Nights at Freddy's. Five Nights at Freddy's. All I hear about is Five Nights at Freddy's! Yes the first game may be entertaining, but once that sequel came out...oh geez. And don't even get me started on the fandom. People use Five Nights at Freddy's. All you gotta do, is make something that has NOTHING to do with Five Nights at Freddy's, randomly copy and paste animatronics into the video, and boom. A ton of subscribers. And the ships, oh lord the ships. If they didn't exist, the world would be a much better place. Don't people know that it's kinda strange to ship ROBOTS? Guess not. Anyways, Five Nights at Freddy's is too popular, and quite frankly too rushed. Four games in one year? Now that my friend, is something called no effort. Five Nights at Freddy's is taking over our world. I won't be surprised if there is merchandise, a T.V. show, a movie, a book, an anime, and so on.

So, I have never been a fan of these games. Sure, they made for good jumpscares and freaky characters, but I HATE horror games. So, people might think I was an idiot for playing this if I don't like horror games, but the thing is, I didn't play these games. I didn't play any of them. Not 1, or 2, or 3 or 4, or even FNaF World. But the reason I find them overrated is because of how they took over the internet. Every single gaming channel I watch (And I watch a lot) did at least 5 videos on these games. And the lore, too. I am very, very, very well aware that this is supposed to be cryptic, and that it is fun to figure the story. But, when the fandom goes too far, that is where I find it overrated. And, even Scott Cawthon himself knew and probably still knows this! Just read his post on whether or not he thinks Silver Eyes is canon! Speaking of which, these games are SO overrated that they have a NOVEL and that there will be an upcoming MOVIE.

Yeah. And, also, the new game coming ...more

6 Halo: Combat Evolved Halo: Combat Evolved Product Image

When Halo first came out, it was without a doubt THE coolest video game I owned. The story was immersive, the firefights were exciting, the enemies were incredible and the first contact with the flood was horrifying. Halo Combat evolved had this sense of mystery about it that no other FPS game I had ever owned could emulate... The wide variety of weapons, vehicles, and characters was mind blowing to me and I also loved that there was a slight horror element to Halo: CE. Keep in mind I was 10 when I first played so it did not take much to scare me. Then Halo 2 Came out... It felt forced, the plot twist were confusing and to be honest not that much fun to be dragged through. The slight element of horror that I thoroughly enjoyed was replaced with aggravation and impatience trying to wade through the annoying wave after wave of flailing armed Flood. I'm pretty sure they must've realized the exploding flood looked like a scrotum... then three came out... lets just say I'm glad it had a ...more

In fact, I don't really think it's overrated. Halo 3 is my favourite game of all time and all the games are also great. You don't really get screaming little kids on multiplayer, the worst you get is someone putting a vacuum cleaner in their mic, which you can easily solve by muting the chat. Job done. Great offline and online multiplayer, amazing storyline and NOT a horrendous fanbase. I may not have gone deeper into the fanbase, but by actually playing the multiplayer for the last 3 games, the people are OK.

Halo 2 Anniversary and Halo 3 are some of my favorite games ever, but this first game just really doesn't shine much a torch. The only reason people in the Halo community call it a masterpiece is bacause it was really good for its time, but now? Its graphics have shown their age, the levels are repetitive and boring (mostly), the story is extremely simple, and the voice acting? meh, it's okay. I admire Bungie's 5 seconds of fun rule, and the gameplay is pretty solid (although 1/10 for multiplayer) against covies, but that does not warrant it as a great game, not by today's standards. I'd rather play Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare that this any day. All the Halos after, except maybe 5 (and spartan strike/assault) completely outdo it in every aspect.

Are people serious? How young are the people who are voting Halo 1 as overrated? It might feel to overrated to a gen Z who grew up playing newer shooters in 2010s, but when this game came out it deserved all the praise it got. Halo: Combat Evolved is one of the games that changed console gaming and it was still among the best shooters on PC when it was ported. Halo did to console shooters what Half-Life did to shooters in general.

7 Flappy Bird

When I first saw Flappy Bird I actually thought it was Super Mario Bros but with a bird. I actually thought it was by Nintendo just because it copied of Super Mario World. All you do is tap your phone screen and try to fly the bird in between pipes until you mess up. Back in 2013-2014 it was a trend but I'm glad this game is dead now.

I like how people were so angry about Nintendo seeing them for, oh I don't know, literally stealing backgrounds from them. The thing is it wouldn't have hurt them to be a little more unique with them instead of just being thieves. Nintendo had every right to sue they were stolen from.

This game is so stupid and overrated. The people that get angry at this game play it EVEN MORE! You might as well become an addict. Also this game ripped off all textures from Super Mario Bros. Hopefully there will be a lawsuit.

Here's my account of flappy bird. Flap, flap, flap, flap oops I died! Hold on I'm addicted to flapping now flap, flap, flap hold on gotta kill my brother for beating my high score flap, flap, flap my phone died and since I can't look away from it for 2 seconds so did I

8 Among Us

Among Us is fun if you get mature people in the lobbies you play in which is very rare. Most of the people that play the game are trolls. They always spam "(insert color) is SUS!" without any evidence and everyone votes them out. When you start a game at least 4 to 5 people leave instantly because they were not picked to be the imposter. People always constantly call in emergency meetings for no reason and don't vote when it is time to vote. Ever since September 2020 it is literally everywhere. The hype for Among Us is really SUS.

I agree. Among Us is very overrated. It's literally Fortnite all over again. I don't get the hype of this at all. The game was literally made in 2018 and now all of a sudden it's popular in 2020. The game only got so popular because of some YouTubers playing it when there's nothing that special about it at all. And plus the memes aren't even that funny and they are overrated and all over the place.

I played Among Us before it was popular and it was a fun and simple game at first, and back in the day, sus was never used and everyone in the lobby was nice. Then it happened. It quickly rose to fame out of nowhere and for that reason, I stopped playing it. The chat was even more toxic and they spammed "SUS" everywhere. I cannot go anywhere win YouTube without seeing the word "sus". This game went from an underrated masterpiece to a toxic wasteland in just one year.

Now I am truly sick of this game all people talk about is this game. In lobbies people make sex jokes and kids do annoying things and people who refuse to play the game. Every match unless you actually have friends usually people who are in random chats leave the match. People accuse you for no reason and kick you out. Also this game is ruining meme comps like covid. Also they make bad jokes related to this game in youtube comments. The fanbase yes even makes porn of among us. Also the mini crewmate meme are annoying not cute

9 World of Warcraft World of Warcraft Product Image

Everything you do in this game doesn't feel fun, it feels like a task, like when your teacher gives you a worksheet, this game makes you do the same thing, get mad and say "fine I'll do it" there is no enjoyment in doing quests, it feels like a job. Not even free roaming in this game is fun, everything in this game gets boring after 10 minutes, and once I got off I never had the urge to play it again, and it's been like 10 years since then

Way too overrated. Not fun at all. It feels and looks like a childish game. When I played the tutorial, I fell asleep at my computer. I tried to get into the game and just couldn't. I can't imagine dishing out tons of money for the constant expansions on top of the monthly fee. My friend's family lost their house due to paying for this game and in game items over their rent!

Awful customer service, and is becoming one of America's most rediculous addictions. I know exactly why it's so appealing to people, but I hope someday they'll realize it's mediocre at best.

Mediocre game in general and it's been nothing but an excuse for Blizzard to make money. I played Ragnarok Online too and it is just as boring.

10 Halo 3 Halo 3 Product Image

I take back what I said on my other account(potbellypup2)the game is awesome for machinimas and multiplayer, but single player never really lived up to it, I just felt like it was too overrated for my likings. But there again, that's my thought.

Best halo EVER MADE, how can this even be on this list. It has a beautiful storyline and fun multiplayer.

The single player of this game it's AWFUL, and the multiplayer got nothing special, so why this game is so popular?

I give this an 8.0/10
Not even close to a classic to me. Me and my cousin Justin just dominate this on the hardest setting its really easy

The Contenders
11 Grand Theft Auto V Grand Theft Auto V Product Image

Singleplayer has amazing actors and story. Everything on single player is such fun. Multiplayer, get killed for no reason, hackers, steals from you. Grand Theft Auto V is the worst ever game to play online. Also is it the best. NO! The greatest Grand Theft Auto game is Grand Theft Auto: SAN Andreas and people say that this is the best Grand Theft Auto of all time. But because of the multiplayer, this is the most overrated game of all time. Can't there be different types of servers you can choose from, basically let the sociopaths kill each other and let the normal people on a different, but that won't work either because of trollers.

Everything is too expensive and money is hard to get. Zero money from missions, you will only notice that you got money after the big score and final missions. Also, shark cards are overpriced, and hack detection is terrible. I found hackers even in good sport sessions!

The game is great. The single player is fun. The online section is not. Everything costs WAY to much, you get killed for no reason, originations will hunt you down, level 400 millionaires who hacked money in will repeatedly kill you in jets, tanks and cars. The online portion of this game is the definition of insanity.

Grand Theft Auto V is also bad with how money is always tight, cash flow is slow and the fun stuff is expensive, feels like they've designed it around pushing people to spend on buying in-game cash. This style of game doesn't mix with grinding. Sometimes it seems like all the microtransations and DLC stuff is a drag on the game industry these days.

12 Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy VII Product Image

It's an okay game, but it hardly deserves all the praise it's gotten. The storyline is somewhat interesting, but the graphics are terrible, the gameplay rather boring, the main character is very unlikable and the villain has no personality or motive. I can't say I actually cared when Aerith died either, she was a pretty annoying character, in my opinion. There are so many other Final Fantasy games that are better, but for some reason they're always overshadowed by this one. I've never understood why.

When I bought this game, I felt straight up duped. I actually liked the storyline, but the combat is ruined by the real time elements that were integrated for no reason and the insanely low difficulty. You don't have the time to formulate a strategy, so I just spammed my magic moves which did insane amounts of damage. The problem is that because of the low difficulty, the game doesn't punish you for this and you slaughter everything in your path without a second thought with the exception of some bosses. The graphics lack color and look like mud! I could knock the game for its character design which took me out of emotional scenes, but the main thing I hate about this game is the open world area. It completely ruins the pacing of the game and literally has NOTHING interesting on is except a few hidden materia that you can't even get until late in the game. Encounters can happen here as a bonus so that when you inevitably get lost on the giant map, you can pull your hair out to get ...more

Final Fantasy VII is a good game but it's too overrated. When people think of Final Fantasy they think of a guy with blonde spiky hair (Cloud) or a silver-haired man with a thin long sword (Sephiroth). They don't think of a blonde guy with a monkey tail (Zidane) or a guy with a scar on his face (Squall). Final Fantasy isn't just about VII it's about the entire franchise as a whole. In fact, Final Fantasy IX is easily the best Final Fantasy game. It's way better and more fun to play than VII.

I have never really been a fan of Final fantasy games. They're way too linear for me and the characters are usually brooding doofs and the game is an insufferable 50 plus hours. I never feel like I am playing a game, I feel like I am watching an interactive movie. I don't like ANY of the characters (except maybe one but they killed her) everything is so bland and drab and emo-y I just...oh my god this game is boring and lame. I will never understand the love for this game. I would rather play FNAF. at least that's only like 3 hours long and then I can have my life back.

13 Undertale Undertale Product Image

The game itself is pretty good, the mini-game combat mechanic is interesting, the writing is OK, the music is awesome (considering only one guy composed it) and in a gaming world full of FPS's and crappy "horror" indie games, it was refreshing to see a game that tried to be different, and had such a good story to tell, with multiple endings, too!. It was a good and refreshing game.

BUT the fanbase made it impossible for ANYONE to enjoy it. It was the most cancerous, immature, stupid fanbase I've ever seen, worse even than the Sonic fanbase, and comparable only to the MLP fanbase. They flooded the internet, it was Undertale and made people hate it. I am thankful that I got the chance to play it before the fanbase erupted, or else, I wouldn't have even touched it.

Only 33?! Come on! The graphics are so unimpressive, clearly the only reason why It is 2D is to cash in on the nostalgia of the older generation, the so called "nice guy monsters who you're supposed to give mercy to" make Porky Minch look like Tails, the dialog never made me laugh, just groan out of the sheer stupidity. And worst of all, despite being a huge ripoff of the Mother series, the only thing they "forgot" to copy is the love for your parents who always welcome you home. And by parents, I mean the real ones, who raised you, not just a bunch of strangers, who you've talked for, like, two seconds. The only two good things in this game are the music and the final boss!
This game should be burning in Hell, along with the people who created It!

These are the reasons why Undertale is not only the most overrated game ever, but why it is the WORST game ever.

1) Sans. Worst. Character. Ever. How can a skeleton be fat? And his puns are AWFUL! All the characters are pretty terrible though. Sans is just the worst.

2) Graphics. Looks like it was made in 1999. Hard to believe considering it was made recently.

3) The story. Are you kidding me? It's like the most uncreative, stupid story ever made. Just search it up.

4) It's boring. All of the things above make it boring.

Overall, Undertale is an overrated and terrible game. 0/10

I like the game fine like a lot of other people have but...yeah I can admit that it has gotten overrated. Mostly because how the fanbase has behaved for the past 2 years. Sure the look of the game isn't as good looking as big games like MGS 5 but do remember this was done on a small budget with a small development team. It's not like FNAF which doesn't really have a lot going for it and got old very quickly. But even then the fans can take an enjoyable game and turn it into a subject of annoyance.

I don't mind hearing these complaints. In fact I welcome it, but be sure you play it first before you come to your conclusions. So again is it overrated? Yes absolutely. Is it a bad game though? Not really but it's far from a masterpiece either.

14 Candy Crush Saga Candy Crush Saga

I never played Candy Crush but I think this game is like a drug. When people started to play this they could not stop playing it and even if they said that they would not spend real money for extra moves but they ended up spending real money for more moves and even just to play it longer.

Oh my god. This game should take the cake out of any of these. It displays everything wrong with the mobile industry today. You have to pay for everything, and the gameplay is so uninspired. King is a second biggest mobile developer today (niantic recently beat them to the top spot), but they really don't deserve it. How could this game be number 33?

I don't understand how people think this is a good game. It's terrible there are so many ads. If you run out of lives you have to wait for them to renew or some people pay for them. Why does a game like this have lives anyway?

Bejeweled is way better in my opinion. There are countless games that have this genre of gameplay, but everyone I know say Candy Crush is the best one. Hell, every friend of mine on facebook plays this game! It has brainwashed every people's mind and they even dare to buy with real money FOR EXTRA LIFES! *facepalm*

15 Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2 Product Image

Wait, hold on. This is here? The FPS of the century is on an overrated list? If anything, this game is underrated. Only true gamers agree with me. How can a 10/10 game be on this list? How can any Valve game be on this list? This is the game that improved on its predecessor which started a gaming revolution. This is the gaming version of the Last Supper painting. Whoever disagrees probably never had the chance to play it either because they were too into Barbie dolls or that their friends were having so much fun with the game and never gave them a chance to play.

Who the hell put this masterpiece here. This masterpiece is the best FPS ever. Show me a game that have better graphics for it's year, a better story, better main character (Gordon Freeman is so badass), better character personalities, a weapon like the Zero Point Energy Manipulator (Gravity Gun), a wide variety of enemies (Metro cops, Overwatch soldiers, Elite Overwatch, Zombies, Headcrabs, Striders, Hunters, Gunships, Antlions, Choppers and many more, a character like G-man... If you show me a game that have all of this I will... wait... that's impossible. You cannot find a better game! Half-Life 2 is the best game ever! This masterpiece should be ranked higher.

I played them when they were released and I dunno what world some of the people posting were living in but the first really wasn't that mind blowing at all. Doom and its sequel were better games level design, atmosphere and fun wise, and came out about 5 years before it. Hell they even ripped the story off from it and Doom barely even had one to begin with. That's what you're trying to say is impressive about it? They're both pretty generic in that regard Half-life just flushed it out a little more and gameplay wise was very boring and weak. But it was rendered in 3d so I guess it was the best fps ever made? It's presentation was nice but it was severely lacking in other areas in my opinion. Half-life 2 was just more of the same for me, gameplay just was not fun and the story was as generic as ever

The people that praise this game have no real argument for it being the "game of the decade". They say, you should have played it when it came out. Well first of all, the best game should be timeless and shouldn't ever feel boring or slow. Secondly, I thoroughly enjoyed the first game and it's counterparts, and I played that after the I played the second and expected it to be just as boring and dull, but it was actually really fun. The weapons were original and cool, they had more than 1 cool weapon unlike 2 with its "fantastic" weapon, the gravity gun which just ended up feeling like a gimmick. The game itself just felt as if it needed to show it's cool new engine rather than do anything else like make it not feel like a chore to play through where as the first actually had good gun play and decent story.

16 Friday Night Funkin'

It's a pleasure to see this in the top 21. I have been overexposed to this game not just from YouTubers, but also from my own siblings. I gave this game a shot and I did not enjoy it. It was hard for me to find the appeal for this game. It's hard to go on YouTube without finding some mod for this game. I would rather play Among Us tbh.

I can't go anywhere without seeing this game mentioned, This game is not good as people say, I think fortnite is better than this awful game.

I 100% agres with y'all with this one. I hate this game. The music, the character design, the gameplay, the purpose. Its all not my type. I love rhythm games but this one is the worst. They oversexualize the girlfriend everywhere and they protect this piece of poop like it's a sacred artifact. I give this a 0.2/10

I swear this game is to 2021 what FNAF was to 2014, Fortnite was to 2018, and Among Us was to 2020. It's EVERYWHERE. I mean, at least FNAF, Fortnite, and Among Us were good games. FNF is a DDR/StepMania clone, and it isn't even good at being that.

17 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

Its just empty. The only good thing about this game is the modding community that Bethesda is actively trying to kill at every turn.

Lazy uninspired quests, annoying amounts handholding, melee combat is just braindead mouseclicking, magic system is far to simple, crafting system is uninteresting, being a dragonborn just lets you use underwhelming shouts that have long cooldown times (really makes you feel special, huh? ). The whole time I played the game I just kept thinking about how it could have been better. People were surprised when Fallout 4 was terrible, but the game is essentially it's precursor. Everything wrong with Fallout 4 was in Skyrim first. This game just has no substance.

What makes this game special is nothing but a grand illusion. Hundreds of repetitive quests where 90% of the time it's you and you only killing an entire clan. And where most people do more than 85% of them. Because if you do, it is mostly an extremely unrewarding grind. As well as being high leveled means your character no longer resembles what you wanted them to be seeing skyrim is an RPG. You become the only character in the game who actually means something. No one else in the game does anything but walk around and talk, wearing the same ugly outfits, telling you to massacre a whole fort because they lost their pathetic iron sword. And it doesn't matter what armor or weapons you use, or what level, you will be no stronger or weaker than before, so there goes any challenge. Yet no one is a match compared to the mighty dragonborn: Talk about being overpowered feeling like an alien with strong armor on with strong weapons. Unlike anyone else having higher than steel. You're Leader of ...more

Damn we got so many graphics freaks coming in and crying about how sky rim has a minor glitch here and there. Now I would actually care if sky rim just refused to work, but it doesn't. It's like with Fallout 4 (except more people like Skyrim) we get it bugs look funny and can take you out of the immersion, but that doesn't make the game any worse.

18 Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Product Image

Why isn't this higher on the list? Pokemon Red is higher than this and it isn't anywhere near as hated as this game and series

Easily the most overrated FNaF Game. It's honestly my least favorite FNaF Game and it's almost always number one. (Yeah, I even think 3 is better)

The worst game case picture I ever saw.

A mediocre, luck based game.

19 Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV Product Image

Incredibly overrated. The style is utterly unappealing with muted colours and character models that look like they've been converted from the PS2 era. The story is a crock with characters I don't care for and no emotional attachment as a result. But mainly it's the gameplay that stinks the most. Loose driving controls that make you feel like you're on an ice rink, a mission structure which restarts the mission every time you lose (which can be particularly annoying when those missions are long), repetitive tasks, a dull open world environment that doesn't reward exploration, areas that are so dark it is hard to see and even worse, the gameplay has worsened from previous installments. Gone are the multiple creative weapons, the fun open world and everything else and in its place is a game which is a hollow shell of previous installments. The only reason this was rated so highly was because of brand name only. Thankfully Chinatown Wars (my favourite Grand Theft Auto game) and V came ...more

Is it a good game? Of course... Is it a 10/10 rated game? Absolutely not.

The game got an amazing graphics upgrade since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but San Andreas overcomes Grand Theft Auto 4 in everything else.

What you got first in Grand Theft Auto 4 is a lack of gameplay, the controls are bad and also when you drive car you feel like driving over ice. Most of missions are fun at first, but then they're all the same: You drive a car, get some guns, and shoot to kill people. While Grand Theft Auto San Andreas has a lot of dynamism in its missions eg: Swim underwater, get a boat, hope a board a ferry, get some guns, kill people with guns, and then run away from heli shooting you missiles.

Also, in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas there are lot of things you can explore, since forest to nowhere desert, Grand Theft Auto 4 is just a city, nothing more, nothing less.

In Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, you felt like you can do almost everything, and you do... ...more

I like this game. I really do. There is some fun in it. But it still has plenty of flaws. The ridiculously violent pedestrians that can mob and kill you very quickly. The dull, overly gray, and monotonous-looking city. The surprisingly slow cars that turn the road into butter. The repetitive missions. The epilepsy-inducing camera that spins whenever you make even the slightest turn. Is it an enjoyable game? For the most part. Is it worthy of being the #1 most sold Xbox-360 game of all time? Definitely not, especially with standards rising highly these days.

I would say the series as a whole is very overrated. Very fun games that have no value outside of that. I would argue V is more overrated than IV. 5 is a fine game but is praised HEAVILY because of sales figures and large map. Outside of that, its worse than 4. The story for 4 did get repetitive at times and the handling isn't great, the the story is really good.

20 Candy Crush

That's why there are a lot of girls in the world.

21 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

Yeah, I know Super Mario 64 was 'the best game ver and the collets and blah blah blah', but that game is seriously more overrated than this. 64 did bring Mario to 3D, had decent music, and revolutionized, and it's nostalgic, but Super Mario Galaxy's graphics were ahead for a Wii game, not to mention a 2007 Wii game. It also had some of the best musical scores to any video game- instead of beeps, it was orchestrated symphonies. It also was such a unique game among other Mario games because it had depth, story, and atmosphere. I truly believe this game deserves as much praise as it gets.

Lots of people adore this game including myself but it honestly deserves the praise. People that hate this game can't even think of good reasons on why they think it's bad and just say they hate it because Rosalina and Peach are in it, it is overrated, or it does not have blood and shooting.

I grew up with this game and I really like it, but I think that sometime this game has really good ideas and instead of expanding upon it in the entire level, they for example introduce you to the bomboos at the start of the level and never use this cool enemy until the boss at the end, where they could have made an entire level based around bomboos. That's why I like Galaxy 2, 3d World, and Odyssey more: their level-design have a better focus.

To the fans defending this game, just because y'all don't think that it's overrated, don't mean that it isn't. Kardashian fans don't think that the kardashians are overrated. That don't mean that they aren't. People that aren't blind fanboys nor blind fangirls would know that they are overrated. It's called common sense.

22 Kingdom Hearts Kingdom Hearts Product Image

Kingdom Hearts is mediocre and the fanbase sucks worse than the game itself (most of you fans that I talked to can go fly a kite). Great characters? It's easy to assume that generic characters like in KH are awesome when you know so little characters from other games and Sora is a goofball, not to mention the other characters are stagnant throughout the game. Great story? More like boring. What also makes this game dull is the technical problems and gummi ship mini-game garbage. The side quests are hardly things that would make this game worthy of my time. All in all, it's nothing but a generic action rpg series that's meant to make Square (the worst game developer so far) money.

I used to love kingdom hearts, but looking back it wasn't very good at all. I liked the second one, but the rest were kinda crap, and don't get me started on kingdom hearts 3. I actually had a feeling it might be pretty good, but it was a complete disappointment, and one of the worst games I ever played. And just to make it clear, I am a massive fan of jrpgs. I love final fantasy and Dragon quest, I love in Japan and my wife is Japanese, but kingdom hearts, I honestly thought sucked. The only thing I liked about the series was the soundtracks by hikaru utada.

This series is the complete opposite to the Disney classics it is based off. Varied gameplay, inventive puzzle solving and non-linear exploration has been sacrificed for an overambitious storyline and over-dramatic combat.

How is this overrated? This is the second best game I've ever played. The only game that beats it is Kingdom Hearts II. It has a fantastic story, lots of days of play, and the gameplay, while a little repetitive at some points, is still great.

23 Pokemon Red Pokemon Red Product Image

Nothing really wrong with these games on their own, but if it weren't for the newer games Pokemon would probably be the shallow, boring thing people think it is. Newer gens had better graphics, more Pokemon species so you get more of a choice, aspects like breeding, EV training, held items and new moves to give the game an insanely deep meta...and all you see is people complaining about how the new designs are bad. Each generation has well liked Pokemon and less popular ones, we get it, you don't have to love them all but they're all there no matter what and it can't be changed.

Unlike everyone else, I think gen 1 of pokemon's biggest flaw is the fact that your bag has a limited amount of space yet it can contains a bicycle and 99 times the same item, meaning that if you have 20 different items in your bag you have to either store them in the pc box or throw away that items. Gen 2 solve that problem by only limitting the items that are not important or are not TMs. There are also other really stupid flaws like having to switch pokemon boxes at the pokemon center to be able to transfer new pokemon in the pokemon center.

Terrible fanbase aside, what is wrong with game?
1. Graphics are bad. Do I need to explain?
2. Battle mechanics are broken. This gets worse when you learn that this game was in development for 3 years. Some great examples include focus energy doing the opposite of what is was programmed, Ghost types being ineffective against psychic types even though that was supposed to be the opposite, and everything missing 1/256 of the time.
3. Glitches. Just look up the Bulbapedia article on this. That's all I need to say.
4. Story. Compared to other games in this series, this seems the most lacking. Your rival (by the way has the default name of Blue which is incredibly lazy) is nothing but a big arrogant jerk. That wouldn't be bad, but he gets no character development at all. So why is everybody saving he's the best rival? Team Rocket's plans seem weaker than other teams in the series. It's just a poor story.
P.S. Fire Red fixed most of these problems, and I recommened it.

I would say all of Gen 1 is OVEREXPOSED! Game Freak are obssesed with Gen 1 pandering, but it got worse in Gen 6, yet even WORSE in Gen 7!

24 Super Smash Bros Melee Super Smash Bros Melee Product Image

I like playing this game once in a while, but I would argue that besides brawl with subspace Emissary, there are no games that has a considerable thing that makes it better than Ultimate. The only thing Melee has over ultimate are break the target, and Adventure mode, which are pretty small things, and not enough to beat ultimate. Sure Melee has wavedash but it's one of the reasons why competitive Melee is so hard to get into, and you are basically praising a game for a glitch that wasn't planned by developpers.

Honestly this game is nothing THAT special. Sure, it reinvented Smash and made it what it is today but it has cons. For example, this game introduced many clone fighters (ganondorf, Falco etc.) and some of the trophies are downright ugly (looking at you pit and Evee! ) so yeah most people only like it for its fast gameplay but once ultimate comes out, it will overcome Melee in nearly every single way possible. You're right. Ultimate is not Melee. It's better than Melee.

Can we get this one a little higher? Maybe like top 50? First of all, I love Super Smash Bros., but my favorites are SSB4 and Brawl. Melee, however, all I hear and see in Melee tournaments on YouTube is "Fox is best! Shine! Shine! Shine! Wombo Combo! Kirby is for losers and so is Pichu! "

First of all, I understand personal opinion. I like to play as Fox in Smash, but do we have to hear about him in every Melee video? God! I get it!

Second, I think the Wombo combo video and scream is pretty funny, but how did it get so popular? How? I'm not mad at that, but how?

Third, these fanboys literally will hate on Brawl for "Being too slow." Really. That's why PM was made. For example, Mango will not try any new Smash game. He just sticks with Fox and Melee.

In conclusion, Melee is an insanely overrated game that needs to calm down about Fox and respect other better characters (my opinion) such as Dr Mario, Mario, Ness, and Kirby.

People like Super Smash Bros Melee over all the other games because it's "more competitive" and "Nostalgic"

Also the man behind Smash regrets making Melee being as competitive as it is. That's why Brawl and Smash 4 are more targeted towards casuals instead of being centered around the competitive fans.

25 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Product Image

Grand Theft Auto IV showed up one overrated list and now everyone parrots it as an overrated game, but the mindless love for San Andreas always baffled me. Everyone loves the big map but forgets how empty and pointless the environment was. Once you breathlessly explored the forest or the desert the first time you depressingly realize you're never going to come back again because there is nothing there. And that applies to all those little towns. Nothing to see. Nothing to do. About 75% of the map was simply dead space. Those same fans crap on IV, but IV has a denser and larger total city area. Also, SA has more than it's share of notoriously bad missions, and the gang war feature was so bad it required you to leave Los Santos just to avoid another repetitive and ridiculously easy to win battle. Vice City felt leaner and didn't need the silly mini-games or Hot Coffee mods. San Andreas feels bloated and overblown.

This game is not a good game. Other than having the most unlikable main character in the Grand Theft Auto universe it focuses way to much on realism it forces you to work out in a game I am tired of being asked to do it in real life so why force you to do it in a game. And to top it all of they added a whole hair dresser idea to the game. Listen it didn't work in vice city it didn't work here

I disagree with the comments. It's a very good game but I do agree it's way too overrated, though Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V are far more overrated than Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

Everyone thinks this game was great because the map was so huge. I actually think that worked against the game. Grand Theft Auto IV's map is much smaller but still huge and much more workable.
