Top 10 Most Overrated Things

The Top Ten
1 ‎TikTok

This definitely deserves to be here. TikTok just has a bunch of teenagers doing cringe and dangerous stuff just so the videos get lots of views. Why is sports on this list? In every school, almost half the kids hate sports!

This definitely deserved the Number 1 spot:

1. Your activity on it is being monitored by the Chinese Government.
2. It has stupid stuff, like kids dancing to inappropriate music, and the Tide Pod Challenge.
3. It looks stupid to go out in public and do the stupid dances you either made up or found on it.

2 Sports

I can understand why this is number one on this list. Now, I'm not saying that athletes don't deserve to be noticed, but there are people who have made some very good points about the fans. There are sports fans who go nuts over their favorite athlete or team. There are even fans who would get into brawls over the athlete or team they adore. That's mostly true among American Football fans.

Plus, there are people who wonder why athletes get far more money than doctors, construction workers, officers, firemen, scientists, or people in any other major occupational role. The same question is often raised about actors and reality stars, who are mostly actors themselves. Some sports fans claim that athletes work hard, have accomplished something good, are considered heroes, and are looked up to by many. But can't those things also be said about doctors, construction workers, scientists, or people in any major occupational role? What gives sports a far greater paycheck than being a doctor?

I guess athletes get paid more because of the audience, along with the fact that in most sports, you have to put a lot of physical effort into it. Still, it does seem a little off that a person can get paid more in sports than in occupations that try to make society better. Sure, there are athletes who donate to charity, but you don't have to be an athlete to do that. Plus, I heard that most athletes spend too much, even in relation to how much they make. That must be why most of them end up broke after retirement.

I don't think sports is the most overrated thing ever, but it is one of the most overrated things.

3 Fortnite: Battle Royale

I don't understand how people get addicted to this game. All my friends play it for like six hours, but when I play, I can't last for more than two matches.

The game is just so boring to me. It's the same thing each game: loot, walk around, then get killed by somebody. The game is almost all luck-based, too. I would much rather play a Mario game than this. At least Mario games have a story and aren't the same thing over and over.

Disney bought the rights to Fortnite. It appeared in the final Avengers movie, and it appeared in the game also, Wreck it Ralph 2, and there will be a TV show made by them. What's next? A Fortnite movie made by Walt Disney Animation or a live-action movie with an animated CGI loot llama, the bear guy, and more. Fortnite sucks! Worse than the Emoji Movie. #don't let Gene do the floss dance.

4 Airpods

I do like Apple, but you're better off with headphones (excluding the new headphones from Apple).

I have had AirPods, and they're not comfortable to wear. Even most headphones are cheaper than their earbuds and better in both battery life and sound quality. The AirPods Max are also ridiculously overpriced and have only 20 hours of battery life. Go for Bose or Sony instead.

Why would you ever spend $200 on a pair of earbuds that are slightly higher quality than ten-dollar ones? You can slap "Apple" on everything, and people will immediately buy it, no matter how expensive or bad it is.

5 Call of Duty

Call of Duty and Star Wars are hard to compare in terms of which franchise is more overrated. Both are involved in constant debates and often come up in discussions unrelated to them. They are highly praised by their fans, who consider them revolutionary, though this is debatable. For instance, Star Trek established the standard for futuristic science fiction a decade before Star Wars, without appealing as much to the typical Michael Bay audience.

Regarding Call of Duty, it's often argued that other war video games are mere rip-offs. However, games like Counter-Strike, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs, Medal of Honor, and Ace Combat were all released before Call of Duty, making its unique hype somewhat perplexing. What's more, fans often claim that each new Call of Duty game is significantly different from the previous ones, though this is not always the case. In contrast, the makers of Star Wars at least attempt to differentiate the sequels from earlier releases, despite The Force Awakens being quite similar to the original Star Wars film but with different characters. Considering these points, Call of Duty might indeed be the more overrated franchise of the two.

6 Baby Shark

I feel sorry for the people who grew up with this song (the Pinkfong version). The first time I sang this song was in kindergarten, and even then, it wasn't the Pinkfong version. It was a different version.

I'm so glad I grew up with Mario and not this.

Thankfully for everyone, this died off.

7 Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar (born October 11, 1992), known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper. Born and raised in New York City, she became an Internet celebrity by achieving popularity on Vine and Instagram. From 2015 to 2017, she appeared as a regular cast member on the VH1 reality television... read more

I find her music absolutely soulless and unattractive. And her fans are stupid too because there's just so much out there that feels so much smarter and brighter to the heart, while the people who like her music just become feminine gangster-like people who don't care about quality at all. This is just my thought about her. She's the daughter of evil.

Words are unable to describe how overrated I think she is.

8 Netflix Netflix is an American entertainment company founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph on August 29, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California.

Netflix has some good shows, but a lot of bad ones. Disney is better, in my opinion, because it actually has good-quality shows, and you don't see Instagram posts saying, "me and my hubby are going to watch Disney the entire night."

Everyone at school never shuts up about Netflix. They make it out to be the best thing ever. It's not even that good. Around 85% of its shows and movies are trash.

I'm sick of seeing "YASSS! Me and hubby are gonna Netflix and chill tonight" everywhere on the internet, especially seeing that there aren't many shows or movies on there, and most of what is there is trash.

9 McDonald's

Disgusting trash for people who like to eat cardboard. This is an embarrassment to the food industry!

10 Social Media

What is so great about it? You know that you can actually talk with people in person.

Obviously. Everyone nowadays is on social media, trying to get attention.

Most overrated thing ever! No need to explain.

11 Minecraft

I don't understand what the point of the game is. The only thing you are supposed to do is "survive." There aren't proper obstacles like in a normal game. Honestly, I just don't understand the point of it.

This is the worst game ever. All you do is survive and build. How is this even popular?

This is my opinion every year on how commonly kids talked about Minecraft:

2009 - 2010: Nope, never heard of it yet.

2011 - 2014: Kids talked about it rarely, only older teens and young adults talked about it frequently and at that time the majority never knew what Minecraft was. One said, "What is Minecraft?" This was a time Minecraft was not ruined yet.

2015 - 2016: Kids talked about it a little, older teens and young adults talked about it pretty frequently.

2017 - 2019: Kids talked about it frequently, older teens and young adults talked about it many times, kids didn't talk about it in the annoying way kids said since 2020 and beyond.

2020 - 2021: Kids talked about it many times, got annoying to me a little. I got kind of tired of hearing about it.

2021 - 2024: THE MOST ANNOYING VIDEO GAME EVER. Every time I met 2020s kids from North America or Europe they had to talk about it. They said, "Look, this is Steve! There are zombies in Minecraft too. Do you know Herobrine? You can mine all the way to dripstone! That is a ghast!"

These things that kids said had been going on since 2019/2020. I noticed it became annoying to me in 2020. Minecraft wasn't a buggy thing to me during the 2010s. 2010s kids talk about Minecraft rarely, WHY? Because kids who were born from 2012 onward have to talk about it everywhere I meet them. Minecraft came out in 2009, I was 11, then it came out in the early 2010s in Asia, when I was in my early teen years I got to hear about it from my cousin while I was visiting America. So Minecraft is a 2020s thing, Generation Alpha has to talk about it everywhere.

12 Pop Music

Pop music sounds cheap. The majority of singers use autotune way too much, and the music itself is just a bunch of repetitive beats that were designed to be catchy and make cash. There are a few good pop songs out there, but the more time passes, the harder it seems to find one. Older pop songs are already way better.

A lot of pop music not only seems to cover just one topic but also sounds very generic. Pop music can be good when done right, but we see too much of this generic love song stuff in pop music.

13 Anime

Most boys, including my friends at school, love anime. I didn't say I hate anime (due to its really good animation and design), but I don't really watch it. I prefer other cartoons and TV shows. The only anime movie I have watched is The Castle of Cagliostro on Netflix.

The worst reason why people watch it is because of "hot" girls, even though I don't like the style of "hot" girls in anime. I may be a boy, but I am against the way girls are portrayed with zero percent character. It makes sexual abuse seem like "true love".

I don't like anime. No, not because I'm jealous, but because I never understood the appeal of annoying voice acting, terrible frame rate, bad character designs, cheesy or repetitive plots, having to read subtitles to understand what they're saying, the absolute horrid fanbase, and sometimes (I said sometimes) porn. Not everyone is going to like it, so go open a dictionary and find the word 'opinion' or get off the internet.

14 Nostalgia

This should be in the top 10 of this list, given the hype and attention that has been given to so many things that were based on things made before the 2000s. This has been going on constantly in the last several years.

This became very overrated during the 2010s, especially in the movie industry.

The past isn't as nice or as good as you remember it to be.

15 Sex

Where do I even begin? I know it's a way to show love, but if you take the porn, the songs, and the people who make fun of you for being a virgin, it just makes it so much worse. I never had love interests, which means I'll stay a virgin and never have sex.

Also, consider overpopulation. If you really want a kid, don't just have fun with your husband or wife. Adopt a child instead. Millions of children are orphans, waiting to be adopted. Sorry if that was out of the blue, just use a condom.

Why does everybody like this so much? It's gross and inappropriate, and people like to do it for amusement! You should only do it when you want to have a baby!

Also, people should start paying more attention to personality instead of what other people's bodies look like. Intelligence, kindness, generosity. All wonderful things you can find in a romantic partner other than inappropriate garbage.

16 Beyoncé Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from... read more

I'll admit some of her songs are decent, but it'd be nice if her 11-year-old fangirls weren't constantly shoving her down our throats, talking about how she's their queen and how she supposedly "slays," which is easily one of the dumbest slang words I've ever heard, even over words like "swag" and "yolo." There are going to be people who don't like her. Get over it or get off the internet.

SUPER overrated, easily the most overrated music artist. She's definitely talented, but I'm sick of everyone bowing down to "Queen Bey" and calling her the greatest.

17 Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

The Walt Disney Company should now just be called The Nostalgia Company, since just about any big thing they have produced in the last several years is only famous because of nostalgia. DreamWorks has thought of more new things than Disney has. Disney's biggest recent movies that did not become famous because of nostalgia are Zootopia and the Frozen films.

Frozen is based on a children's book made before the 2000s, but did most people know that before the first Frozen movie?

18 The Word "Overrated"

If the people who voted on 'the word overrated' do not understand by now what overrated means, then they're either very dumb or are just blind fanboys or fangirls. I'll state some examples of things that are way overrated. Eminem is the most overrated rapper. Racism is a big reason for that. He's so worshipped by racists, he has songs that get played on rock stations. Do you think that would still happen if Eminem were black? Elvis, Adele, and Taylor Swift are other singers that are overrated because of racism.

19 Selfies

Who wants to make bets that at least 70% of kids, teens, and young adults' photo galleries are mostly taken up by "selfies"? What a stupid term. What's kind of funny about it is that the vast majority of them are iPhone users.

This is too overrated by egomaniacs.

20 PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24, 1989), better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is best known for his Let's Play commentaries and Vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website... read more

PewDiePie is everywhere... I can't stand it. More like Poodiepie. I know that people will give this a thumbs down because they love PewDiePie, but guess what? That proves even more that PewDiePie is overrated.

If you think being a PewDiePie fan makes you edgy, I have some news for you: you're not. You're basic. You're sticking up for the most subscribed person on the platform. He doesn't care about you.

His content sucks too.

Go into the internet section of TheTopTens, and onto YouTubers, and you'll see he'll be number one on almost every list.

21 Star Wars

Just because you don't think it's overrated, doesn't mean that it isn't. Fans of Twilight and Nicki Minaj don't think they're overrated, but that doesn't mean they aren't. Like Twilight and Nicki Minaj, Star Wars became very famous because of dumb, obsessed people.

Plus, the credit that Star Wars gets was done by Star Trek several years before Star Wars came out. The major difference between the two is that Star Trek is not a heavy case of style over substance.

I was never really a fan of Star Wars, mainly because it had one-dimensional characters, repetitive plots, and too many movies. But my god, people are so blinded by nostalgia. I respect what it did for fiction, but I'm so sick and tired of hearing about this flick everywhere I go.

I hear about it so much that I don't ever want to see it again. There have been better movies and epics over the years. I seriously think we need to move on in life because I'm completely done with this film. Hopefully, the next big thing will be a lot better, if it ever happens.

22 Spider-Man: Far from Home

24 Franklin D. Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events... read more
25 Snapchat Snapchat is an American multimedia instant messaging app and service developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc. One of the principal features of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are usually only available for a short time before they become inaccessible to their recipients. The app has evolved... read more

I mean, is it sad this has become the go-to for communicating now? Everyone basically texts on Snapchat nowadays.

It's too confusing to use. I just don't understand it.
