Top 10 Moments When Certain Video Games, Movies and TV Shows Became Seriously Overrated

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 When it started gaining literal immunity to criticism due to a combination of ridiculously obsessive nostalgic sentiment and how utterly awful the prequel trilogy was compared to it - Original Star Wars Trilogy

This entry is a little fake. Most people hate the Prequels. They drone on and on about how bad they are. I actually like the Prequels. I think they are a little overhated. Though they aren't better than the originals. But come on, you have to admit that The Revenge of the Sith was pretty good. I'ts actually my second favorite Star Wars movie, next to The Empire Strikes Back. - LordDovahkiin

2 When people started completely hating on (or at the very least, belittling) every new Zelda game that came out after it just because they weren't as "innovative" - Ocarina Of Time

I've never even played Ocarina and I find it vastly overrated because every single reviewer says it's the best game on earth - DarkShadows

3 When it was made out by its fanbase to be literally the biggest Nintendo RPG since Xenoblade Chronicles - Undertale

Undertale is not a Nintendo game. Get your facts straight - DarkShadows

4 When 4chan Accidentally Invented Bronies - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Yeah, blame 4Chan for creating MLP's cancerous fanbase. - PerfectImpulseX

5 When people (yes, even so-called professional critics) ignorantly slandered the vastly smarter and better-written Rocko's Modern Life for being a "witless ripoff" of it when the two shows were really only marginally similar - Ren & Stimpy
6 When they became literally the only rhythm games anyone ever talked about - Guitar Hero and Rock Band
7 When people actually started claiming that they were better than the original books that they were based off of - Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter
8 When People Became Sexually Attracted to Literally Everything in the Entire Game - Undertale

Kind of weird if you ask me.

9 When it got 10/10 scores from literally almost every major reviewer on Earth - Breath Of The Wild

I just KNOW that it's gonna end up like OOT because of all the reviews and nostalgia. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

10 When people started hating on Undertale for being a "ripoff" of it when it was actually intended as a wholehearted tribute - Earthbound

The Contenders

11 When people started treating literally every platforming game that wasn't in the franchise as being "lesser" and "inferior" - Mario Franchise

This is a very stupid issue among mario fans.

12 When they became basically the only Cartoon Network shows anyone would ever talk about - Adventure Time and Regular Show
13 When It Surpassed Even Gundam Seed and Gundam 00 in Gundam Series Popularity Polls - Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
14 When its fanbase still thought that it was the best rhythm game even after Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Gitaroo Man, and Um Jammer Lammy (which even literally came from the exact same series, no less) - Parappa the Rapper
15 When Otakus Started to Claim that It Was the Best Magical Girl Anime - Puella Magi Madoka Magica

I actually respect Sailor Moon as the best, because it set the standard. So don't bash random otakus because they like Madoka a lot; they may be respectful otakus like me.
-KyubeyFuel

16 When they became literally the only Mega Man games anyone ever talked about besides 9 - Mega Man 2 and X
17 When people pretty much completely forgot that Tomb Raider and the Prince Of Persia Sands Of Time trilogy existed because of it - Uncharted
18 When a disturbingly huge portion of TheTopTens' and Deviantart's entire populations simply would not shut up about it - The Loud House
19 When It Was Made Out by Tokusatsu Fans as the Best Kamen Rider Series Ever Made - Kamen Rider Gaim
20 When people became sexually attracted to the animatronics - Five Nights at Freddy's

This should be closer to the top, and Madoka Magica should be closer to the bottom. Who says otakus can't be reasonable? I respect Sailor Moon as the best because it's the first, but fnaf pervs? That's ridiculous!

21 When people seriously thought it was better than Street Fighter just because it was more violent - Mortal Kombat

In the Sega Genesis version, It has a lot of cussing, blood, violence, sexual content and
a lot of bad things that may not be suitable for children.

In the SNES version, The cussing has been muted, It has sweat, less violence, no sexual content and unviolence stuff like that.

22 When it became the only incarnation of Batman and the Joker that its fans would acknowledge - The Dark Knight

And that's sad. The Joker from Suicide Squad is good too. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

23 When Skylanders Was Released - Spyro the Dragon.

Geez Louise, if I hear 1 more "It ruined spyro" load of bullpoop.

24 When People Started to Claim that It is the Best Mecha Anime of All Time - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
25 When Lammy got over six solid pages of Rule 34 made about her, as well as brain-fetish fanfiction - Um Jammer Lammy

WHY IS BRAIN FETISH A THING - xandermartin98

26 When all of the Gir/Zim fangirls became a thing - Invader Zim
27 When people became sexually attracted to the minions - Despicable Me
28 When people completely forgot about the existence of Rocko's Modern Life because of it - Spongebob Squarepants

33 When people seriously thought it was better than Devil May Cry just because it was more violent - God Of War
34 When people became sexually attracted to the block characters - Minecraft
35 When people started to literally kill each other left and right in vicious theory wars about them - Undertale and Five Nights at Freddy's
36 When Kirby was officially permanently labeled as the cutest thing ever - Kirby Series

Kirby AND Toad are cute. I think they're both adorable. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

37 When people started thinking that it literally invented anime - Dragon Ball Z
38 When it was officially permanently labeled as the funniest game ever made - Conker's Bad Fur Day
39 When people started hating on Futurama for being not quite as good as it - The Simpsons

I like The Simpsons and Futurama. - LordDovahkiin

40 When almost everyone started hating on Family Guy for being a bit of a knockoff of it - The Simpsons
41 When Cartoon Network made it take up nearly their entire daily schedule - Teen Titans Go!
