Top 10 Infamously Overrated Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Final Fantasy VII

It's only "the best ff game" because of nostalgia. Without that, it hasn't aged well in any way, and Square at one point seemed to be milking it just like Disney does with Frozen.

Yet this was the best ff game.

2 Minecraft

Aw man 2011-2013 Minecraft was great and was nostalgic but now...

Minecraft is a game that is mostly designed for kids or people that want to sit back and relax while enjoying something. But to be honest the game is boring. - LegendaryDj23

Okay, Minecraft is pretty good, but it gets boring after a while.

Used to like it when I was like, 10 - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

3 Pokemon Red/Blue

Pokemon is the best games that came out so what are you talking about? - hcps-jeffersba

Actually this game is loved just because of nostalgia...

4 Call of Duty

Annoying fan base, and honestly not that great of a game.

It's Game Good I Like Game Call of Duty

5 Super Smash Bros. Melee

I'd argue that the game is deserving of its reception. The physics and controls of the game are simple and make for a very rewardingly fun experience. Nintendo was made to give us great games like this. - BKAllmighty

It's only overrated because of nostalgia. Apart from that it isn't that overrated. I haven't played it in years. - nintendofan126

6 Undertale

I hear good things about the game, so I might play it sometime. BUT THE FANS. Ugh... - RiverClanRocks

The game was pretty good, but overrated as hell. And the fandom? Oh my god, the fandom. I CANNOT take a single step without hearing "Papyrus is bae".

Another good game with an absolute toxic fan base.

Great game but it's getting overrated

7 Halo
8 Five Nights At Freddy's

Scared me to death the first few times but later it's like meh like most horror games. The thing that made it overrated was its unique gameplay, use of creepy animatronics, which is something a lot of people could've been scared of in their childhood (like my sister), and its incredibly complicated storyline and lore. In basic terms, it's not a bad game, but it's not a godsend or anything. - Mcgillacuddy

You can't make 4 games that are nearly identical and have them be even slightly good. A game like this is supported only by immature kids.

First game: Okay, Pretty good. Second game: Meh. Third game: Okay scott I think that's enough... Fourth game: IT'S TIME TO STOP, OKAY?!?!? Honestly though, If you're into repetitive, boring gameplay, this thing is for you. What I don't understand, is how the HECK this game got such a cult following.

Worse fan base ever. Enough said.

9 Halo 4

IGN gave it a 9.8 enough said. - htoutlaws2012

10 Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U

The Contenders

11 Flappy Bird
12 Super Mario Galaxy

It's great. But it's not the best Mario game. - nintendofan126

13 Grand Theft Auto IV
14 Temple Run
15 Fallout 3
16 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
17 Mario Kart 8
18 Skyrim

I, myself, couldn't come to enjoy the game simply because the controls are horrible. I cannot handle having to use both joysticks to make the character walk properly. - BKAllmighty

19 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Ocarina of Time is Overrated because Of all the Nostalgia and Whining Other than that there is nothing wrong with it other than A few bugs and glitches here and there. - Aguythatpeopleignores

Why would you hate Zelda. This game is definitely not overrated. Ignorant kids.

The point of this list is that it is a compilation of games that are extremely overrated and thus have a bad reputation for it.

This game is one of those. - xandermartin98

Any Zelda game is overrated, I hate Zelda. - Therandom

Give me 3 reasons why Zelda is bad. And there are games more overrated than it. - nintendofan126

20 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
21 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

This is not one of the best zelda games. The sailing is slow and tedious, although the HD remake helped. The dungeon design is sub par. And the game feels like it is missing dungeons.

22 The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
23 The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
24 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
25 Overwatch
26 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
27 Metal Gear Solid 4
28 Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
29 Bioshock Infinite
30 Grand Theft Auto V
31 Fallout 4

Definitely disappointing compared to how amazing Skyrim was to Oblivion. Fallout 4 compared to Fallout: New Vegas is sad, many things have been removed like having to eat,drink, and sleep in survival. Also the conversation barely have any variety by picking different options. However I can say this, this is the game I played the most this year.

32 Mother 3
33 Life is Strange
34 Mario Party
35 Mega Man Legends
36 Conker's Bad Fur Day

Talk about false advertising. In diddy kong racing, Conker is in the game. But later kids find out how foul he really is in this crap
