Most Overrated Video Games of the 90s


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 Street Fighter II
3 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.

4 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

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

6 Sonic CD
7 Super Mario World

Yeah, the sequel was better to be honest. - xandermartin98

8 Mega Man X
9 Tekken 3
10 Tekken

The Contenders

11 Sonic the Hedgehog 2
12 Tekken 2
13 Earthbound

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

14 Pokemon Red
15 Dead or Alive
16 Resident Evil 2

The easiest and least scary of the old resident evil games but it still gets so much praise.

17 Actraiser
18 Dead or Alive 2
19 Dr. Mario
20 PaRappa The Rapper

Always was in the shadow of Um Jammer Lammy (ever since I found out about UJL)

And now it always kind of will be - xandermartin98
