Most Overrated Video Games of 2013

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty in general is overrated. I'm going to be honest, Call of Duty is just a terrible game. Its just point and shoot. I mean come on. At least try people. Call of Duty is the most overrated game of all time. It's so generic an I think most indie games would top it.

Gonna be junk like the previous 3-4 Call of Duty titles... The developers are completely milking this series way to hard. It wont be long before even the 12-13 y/o's playing realize all it is is a copy-paste of the same game each time

They do try to make this game differnt every installment but I feel that it does get old once and a while but they get to add new guns and maps and maybe killstreaks or equipment besides not everything is perfect.

So Call Of Duty series are overrated. But most Call of Duty fans hate Call of Duty Ghosts. - David39

2 Grand Theft Auto V

Haters Gonna Hate. Grand Theft Auto 5 was an Amazing game, but was incredibly over hyped and quite disappointing. This Game had Such High Expectations and was incredibly anticipated. The Trailers looked amazing. The Radios Seemed Amazing (NWA, Kendrick Lamar. What more could you ask for... ) and the Graphics looked incredible for a Current Gen Console.

When the Game Came through the Post on September 17th I was very Excited. The Install was Surprisingly fast for Gigabytes and I was so Excited. I Managed to Complete the Game In 4 Days and was content with my experience so far, but much had to come. Grand Theft Auto Online had 1004 (figure of speech) problems for the first 3 months and there were many overrated aspects of the Games which I feel is necessary to address...

1. Graphics: Although the Graphics of the Game were Fantastic they looked like an incredible downgrade to the Screenshots, or the Screenshots were edited. Textures looked much worse, there are jaggies ...more

Just saying although this game is absolutely epic it's incredibly overrated.

How is Grand Theft Auto 5 overrated it way better then saints row it more realistic, better graphics, way bigger world, more stuff to do, and saints row it to foolish. Also in 3 days Grand Theft Auto 5 billion dollars and you say Grand Theft Auto 5 is overrated retard

Admit is overrated. The storyline is mediocre, the handling and shooting mechanics is too easy, the missions are too easy, the cops and AI are horribe, and the multiplayer consist of 12 year old trying to kill you every minute or blow you up. - keontesampson76

3 The Last of Us

Great game! You get emotionally attached to Ellie and The last confrontation nearly caused me to rip my controller in half because I felt helpless and thought it was all over...

Good story but very poor gameplay.

After Call of Duty, this is the most overrated game of all time.

Last of Us sucked. Deal with it.

4 SimCity

Feels like a Facebook game..

Buggy like VW Buggy.. Or so.

5 Minecraft

This is just way to overrated. Would you like to know how many videos of Minecraft are on YouTube? 500 VIDEOS! Every time I go to YouTube, BOOM there are lots of Minecraft videos. People who love Minecraft so much should move to fun and underrated SimCity 4. - TopTenJackson

It isn't even funny how overrated Minecraft is. It's just a game where you place square bricks. I never liked Minecraft (despite my friends trying to get me to play it). Everywhere I go it's Minecraft this and Minecraft that.

Minecraft is one of the best games ever, but it's one of those games after about 45 minutes of playing you just get bored. It isn't overrated

I love mincraft its stupidly awesome

6 Tomb Raider

Best game

Drowning in silly, infuriating QTEs, gives no respect to L. Croft, super boring, awkward in a dozen ways.

This just spits on the old TR as much as possible. None of this crap happened, according to the old games. I thought Tomb Raider was too good for the latest fads. (The latest fad is origin/survivor stories) According to TR:LR, NONE OF THIS HAPPEND. If you want a good TR game, get legend, 3, 2,4, and Anniversary.

Gratuitous and Cliche, also Origin Stories are retarded.

7 BioShock Infinite

It was a good game with some of the best twists I've ever seen but the ending confused me - shfydgi

Not overrated. If anything its underrated

What?!? If anything, this game is underrated! Awesome game in every way!

I liked this one - DatRabidSlushie

8 God of War: Ascension
9 Destiny

It's underrated

10 Pokemon X

This game is a bit like gta5 of the last of us. Its incredible, but very overrated. - coolguy101

This is too hated to be overrated. - KingofHoundooms

Y is better than X

The Contenders

11 Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

When Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Amy Rose and Blaze the Cat are together in a Mario & Sonic crossover instead of all Mario/Sonic characters of each gender, the game get automatically lauded even though it does not make the game. Plus Knuckles the Echidna seems to be looking as Princess Peach because she is the only competitor whom he is behind. There are way better aspects in the M&SatOG series for sure, such as how elite all the athletes are.

12 Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

Game was way over hyped for a seemingly never ending circle of running around and sailing ships very disappointing for a game as popular as AC is.

Nah it deserves its praise - christangrant

YOU KNOW WHAT I don't WANT TO GO ON FOR EVER BUT THIS GAME IS BOSS

It has very bad story the worst story in gaming history

13 The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
14 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

No this game deservves its rating because it's awesome slasher

It's like playing a game on the PS1.

How THIS game is considered one of the best Hack n slashes of all time BAFFLES me

No this game deservves its rating because it's an awesome slasher

15 Watch Dogs

Wouldn't say its overrated, just a letdown for all the hype given.

This was released in 2014

You are joking this game is awesome

Not overrated. - EliHbk

16 Super Mario 3D World

How is this and tomb raider overrated? - Harri666

This game isn't OVERRATED! People keep saying super Mario 64 is the best, which is not, so this is actually underrated! I'm not aaying it's the best game ever, don't worry. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Actually, I believe that Super Mario 3D World is generally superior to Super Mario 64.

I give Super Mario 64 an 8/10 (7/10 for the DS/Virtual Console version and 9.5/10 for the N64/iQue Player version). They were way too positive and innovative to not like.

I give Super Mario 3D world a 9/10 stars. It was innovative, powerfuly moving and its presentation is extremely sharp like its gameplay. I will never use some specific Mario characters (they are Princess Peach, the Sprixie Princesses and Plessie) as an excuse to hate this Modern Mario masterpiece.

Hey, HeavyDonkeyKong. Super Mario 64 is much better than Super Mario 3D World.

17 Battlefield 4

I thought the level design on this was awesome and the campaign had THE BEST graphics at the time. The problem is I couldn't play the damn thing until they mostly fixed the bugs a year later!

How is this not. #1?! This game isn't even finished! It's the most disappointing game I have ever played

"Call of Duty is overrated, it sucks! "wow, real original guys

No this game is awesome minus the crashes

18 Pikmin 3

I respect your opinion. I'm not that big into Pikmin, but seriously, that was a powerful move for Nintendo to create Pikmin!

How is it overrated, it is one of the best Wii u games but not overrated

19 Temple Run 2
20 Earthbound Wii U

The people who think this is overrated haven't played the original earthbound

This game is a remaster of a game from 1994. And graphics don't make a game bad.

Why is it a best seller it is not that good like mega man 6 -

It has the worst graphics for a game in 2013 flappy bird looked better than earthbound -

21 Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

Overrated? Okay, Right! So Do You Have Any Proof Of That. Yeah! I Didn't Think So.

22 Flappy Bird

It's pewdiepie's fault it's popular

Pewdiepie released his Flappy Bird video in 2014, so yeah.

Should Be Number One - VideoGamefan5

23 Sonic Lost World

Everything Sonic Nowadays Sometimes Sucks And Is Overhyped

This is the most underrated game along with Pokemon mystery dungeon series both got the same scores - ikerevievs

Mario is better but still great game

If anything its more underrated than overrated - christangrant

24 FIFA '14

EA just spits out the same game every year, but with slightly improved graphics. There's also roster changes, but they're kind of pointless in a game like this. Once, EA just copied the exact same FIFA for the next FIFA!

Still soccer. Still FIFA. Just like Call of Duty, it's not different from the rest.

Same as all the others

25 Saints Row IV

I'd say its underrated

It sucks sorry GET A LIFE GO Mario

26 Madden NFL 25

All it is is football it gets boring after 10 minutes - ikerevievs

27 Mario Party: Island Tour

I AM SORRY I STRONGLY PREFER THE ORIGINAL Mario PARTY TRILOGY FOR THE N64, MOST SUPER Mario GAMES (LIKE THE ORIGINAL SUPER Mario BROS. TRILOGY, SUPER Mario 64, SUPER Mario GALAXY, SUPER SMASH BROS., SUPER Mario WORLD, NEW SUPER Mario BROS., THE SUPER Mario LAND TRILOGY, SUPER Mario 3D WORLD AND MOST OTHER Mario RPGS) OVER Mario SPINOFFS RELEASED IN THE 2010S SUCH AS HOTEL Mario, THE EDUCATIONAL Mario GAMES, THE RECENT Mario PARTY GAMES SUCH AS ISLAND TOUR, THE MODERN Mario TENNIS GAMES AND Mario GOLF: WORLD TOUR (PLEASE NOTE THE SARCASM)! - The Ultimate Daredevil, who scorns the hate he used to get for his taste in Mario games although he proudly fixed some of it

28 Pokemon Y

Great Pokemon, but really bad gameplay.

Literally, "Pokemon X and Y". Does anyone else find that to be kind of amusing? - xandermartin98

29 Dead Trigger 2
30 NBA 2K14

I know this is a great NBA game BUT WHO GIVES A CRAP THIS GAME IS TOO OVERRATED THE CONTROLS ARE AWFUL THE GAME PLAY DOS'NT EVEN HAVE A STORY ITS JUST DESPRIT YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING GO BY Call of Duty OR SOMETHING IT HELPS YOU GET BETTER AND HELP YOU SURVIVE THAN THIS KINDS OF STUFF WHAT MADDEN NFL CAME UP WITH THIS GEASE GOD I'M TIRED.
