Top 10 Immediate Signs of a Video Game Being Overrated

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 Blatantly overshadows vastly better games from the same series (prime examples: Ocarina Of Time, Final Fantasy VII, Parappa The Rapper, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Metroid, Kirby Super Star, Symphony Of The Night)
2 Is considered "underrated" but has at least 300 if not 3,000 critic reviews that all average out to five stars (prime examples: Psychonauts, Metroid Prime Trilogy)
3 Has an absolutely ludicrous amount of Rule 34 (prime examples: Sonic, FNAF, Undertale, Metroid, Pokemon, Mario, Zelda, Tomb Raider, Um Jammer Lammy)
4 Is almost unanimously considered the best game of its entire genre despite actually having very little to back the statement up with (prime examples: Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Street Fighter, Metroid, Tekken, Call Of Duty, Phoenix Wright)
5 Every other game that even remotely resembles it is automatically deemed a "clone" of it (prime examples: Mario, God Of War, Doom, Phoenix Wright, Street Fighter)
6 Is basically the only game from its series that anyone ever talks about (prime examples: Super Metroid, Half-Life 2, Final Fantasy VI/VII, Metroid Prime, Parappa The Rapper, Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal, Bioshock)
7 Has a story that is nowhere even near as deep or as interesting as people claim it to be (prime examples: Chrono Trigger, Undertale, Final Fantasy VI/VII, Ocarina Of Time, Cave Story, Fallout, Mother 3, Earthbound, The Last Of Us)
8 Is considered a definitive system-seller for its console (prime examples: Mario, Metroid, Zelda, Uncharted, God Of War, Halo, Crash Bandicoot Trilogy, Classic Sonic)
9 Is hailed by its fans as the saddest game ever created (prime examples: Mother 3, Undertale, The Last Of Us, Cave Story)
10 Is considered a lot funnier than it actually is (prime examples: Kid Icarus Uprising, Mario & Luigi, Team Fortress 2, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Borderlands 2, Ratchet & Clank)
