Top 10 Infamously Overhated Video Games


The Top Ten

1 E.T.

This is the most overhated game. There are way worse than this game.

It's certainly a bad game, but is is THE worst game? Nope.

Someone has made a homebrew version that fixes most of the bugs, especially the pit falling. I think Superman 64 is the actual worst game of all time. It's ET times 46. - Dominicmgm

For those who think this game is the worst ever made, have you even read the manual? Reading the manual actually makes the game better.
It's still bad but there's much worse games than it (Crazy Bus, the ZX Spectrum version of SQIJ!, Hong Kong 97, that one obscure Java mobile game adaptation of Mobile Fighter G Gundam, the version of Sonic Jam, every girls doctor/surgery flash game on the internet, the GBA version of Winx Club, Mighty No.9, Tales of the Tempest, etc.) in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseX

2 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

I have nothing against this game but those people hate it just because it's too futuristic in appearance. Look at the trailer on YouTube, you'll see the number of dislikes it got. - Neonco31

Black Ops 3 was worse - christangrant

3 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

It’s like second one best game of all time list - VeganTurtle

4 Sonic 2006

It might be bad but it isn't as bad as the version of Sonic Jam in my humble opinion. - PerfectImpulseX

5 Hyperdimension Neptunia

This should be considered the Kill la Kill of video games because people tend to hate this franchise because they claim it's sexist. No, it isn't. It is actually one of the most feminist video game franchises to date. The Hyperdimension Neptunia games show that women are just as capable of men and it is okay to be a lesbian. It also helps that the series is made by a group of women who really like video games. - PerfectImpulseX

I love Neptunia. >.< - Gehenna

6 Halo 4

It was ok, Halo 5 was worse to be honest - HaloFanboy

7 Super Mario Sunshine
8 Undertale
9 Gal*Gun: Double Peace

Lots of fanservice doesn't always equal bad. - PerfectImpulseX

10 Call Of Duty: Ghosts

The Contenders

11 Superman 64
12 Zelda 2: Adventure Of Link
13 Tales of Zestiria
14 Hotel Mario

This and every game on CD-I

15 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty
16 Minecraft

Some of the hate Minecraft gets is a tad bit out of hand, considering there are many other games out there that are terrible to the point of being unplayable. Downright shoddy titles like Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, Crazybus, Superman 64 and Ninjabread Man deserve much less respect than this. - Entranced98

17 Link: The Faces Of Evil
18 Tales of Graces F
19 Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing

Big Rigs deserves the hate it gets. It was in the alpha stage of development when it was released, there is poor collision detection, the graphics and music suck and you can't even lose.

20 Mega Man: Battle Chip Challenge
21 Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8 is great. Other than the questionable battle mode, I don't see why it gets so much hate.

Apart from not being nearly as fun to watch on YouTube (and in many cases not quite as much fun to play) as Mario Kart Wii due to the severely nerfed items and lack of proper shortcuts, tricks or glitches like the ones in MKW...

And aside from having by far the worst character roster in all of Nintendo spin-off history...

I'd really love to hear what you guys think is so bad about MK8, as it's objectively the best game in the series by a landslide.

The ungodly amount of hate that this one particular MK game (as well as Smash 4) is constantly bombarded with by fans of the respective franchise is starting to make me think that we've been genuinely spoiled way too much by Nintendo over the years. - xandermartin98

22 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
23 Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric
24 Final Fantasy X-2
25 Crazybus
26 Conker's Bad Fur Day
27 Assassin's Creed 3

Why do people hate this and Unity? - RalphBob

28 Devil May Cry 2
29 Final Fantasy X
30 Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

This game is a lot better than super mystery dungeon - Himalayansalt

31 Mega Man 7
32 Metroid: Other M
33 Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie's Double Trouble!
34 Custer's Revenge
35 Assassin's Creed Unity
36 Azure Striker Gunvolt Azure Striker Gunvolt

Whoever thought that this game had bland level design needs a "plug for their socket". - PerfectImpulseX

37 Final Fantasy XV
38 Fallout 4
39 Shadow The Hedgehog
40 Paper Mario: Sticker Star
41 Pokemon X/Y
42 Metroid 2: Return Of Samus
43 Mighty No. 9

It deserves its hate. - PerfectImpulseX

44 Sonic Forces

I actually like this game. I love how you can create your own character in this.

Everything Modern Sonic-related gets a bad rep - PerfectImpulseX

45 Five Nights At Freddy's

The first 4 games were okay, Sister Location was what got me into the games, it was such a great game.

46 Cave Story 3D
47 Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
48 Earthworm Jim 3D
49 Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2
50 Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels
