Most Overrated Video Games of the 90s

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Final Fantasy VII

I decided to create my own version of this list just to seal the last nail in the coffin. This game NEEDS to be #1. - xandermartin98

Why is Ocarina of Time on this list?

This game should automaticly be #1 infamously overrated in every way - htoutlaws2012

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

This isn't exactly bad just overrated. I'm only twelve and n64 and PlayStation are my favorite consoles. Last year I got this game after hearing about how good it was and was a little disappointed. At many points In the game I felt like all I was doing was walking around. It was kinda boring. (spyro the dragon still my faforite! )

This game IS the best game of all time, but since everyone says that I see how it could be overrated.

Not Even Good, Majora's Mask for the win

In my opinion:
OoT N64 < MM N64 < OoT 3D = MM 3D
All of them are great games though.

3 Street Fighter II
4 Pokemon Red

Yes those annoying genwunners - Dvafan2

Back in the 90's having a portable game system was awesome

5 Earthworm Jim

Because, actually, the only thing that made this game good (even in the Special Edition) was actually the graphics and soundtrack (and sound effects). The gameplay is mediocre and overrated and in retrospect EWJ was actually just your average "product of the 90s" that tried way too hard to be cool and edgy. I hate to admit this (as I used to be a huge EWJ fan) but it's true. However, the soundtrack of the first game is still absolutely awesome.

Why is this here?

6 Earthbound

Take Earthbound off because Nobody Talks about Earthbound Anymore, they all moved to Undertale.

7 Chrono Trigger

Aged badly, not much point in playing it today.

Seriously, this game is amazing in every department EXCEPT gameplay. The gameplay sucked major d#%^

I loved this game so much as a child, but while Final Fantasy VI is still fun for me... I get bored playing this nowadays. tragic how one of my favorite games ever aged so terribly. il;l always remember playing it at a young age though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Sonic CD
9 Tekken 3
10 Sonic the Hedgehog
