Top 10 Infamously Overhated Video Games


The Top Ten

1 E.T.

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

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.

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

I love Neptunia. >.< - Gehenna

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

6 Super Mario Sunshine
7 Undertale
8 Halo 4

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

9 Gal*Gun: Double Peace

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Zelda 2: Adventure Of Link
12 Call Of Duty: Ghosts
13 Hotel Mario

This and every game on CD-I

14 Link: The Faces Of Evil
15 Superman 64
16 Tales of Zestiria
17 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.

18 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

19 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty
20 Tales of Graces F
21 Mega Man: Battle Chip Challenge
22 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
23 Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric
24 Final Fantasy X-2
25 Assassin's Creed 3

Why do people hate this and Unity? - RalphBob

26 Crazybus
27 Conker's Bad Fur Day
28 Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

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

29 Devil May Cry 2
30 Azure Striker Gunvolt Azure Striker Gunvolt

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

31 Final Fantasy X
32 Mega Man 7
33 Fallout 4
34 Earthworm Jim 3D
35 Shadow The Hedgehog
36 Kingdom Hearts
37 Metroid: Other M
38 Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie's Double Trouble!
39 Super Mario 64 DS

This never deserves hate. I think this is the best Mario game ever made.

40 Paper Mario: Sticker Star
41 Pokemon X/Y
42 Metroid 2: Return Of Samus
43 Custer's Revenge
44 Assassin's Creed Unity
45 Mighty No. 9

It deserves its hate. - PerfectImpulseX

46 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

47 Final Fantasy XV
48 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.

49 Cave Story 3D
50 Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
