Most Overrated Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Call of Duty

Some games are innovative and provide gripping story's that make you care about the characters, but this is not Call of duty. With basically the same game just little mix ups on the multiplayer/story, as well as zombies which is tacked on as an afterthought to try to appeal to a larger audience. The only reason this game is successful is because the "Bro" crowd as I call them vote with their wallets and only buy this and madden every year, it almost kind of saddens me because these people/games give other games a bad rap, especially in the whole are games art argument, but the fact of the matter is as long as this and madden stay popular games will never be considered art among the general public

Okay I'll admit I'm terrible at online play but I'm a loner when it comes to gaming anyways which is why when the elder scrolls online was announced a small part of me died. I digress, the campaign is cookie cutter, copy and paste garbage, your AI teammates are just as good at helping you as monkeys are at running a banana stand. I enjoyed modern warfare 1 because it was a breath of fresh air from the World War series, it was something new. After that it got incredibly lazy... The storyline started following a pattern: Meet the new guy (you), New guy is a bada$$, new guy is needed for top secret mission and is given cool little gadgets to play with as if that's just a normal day for any spec ops personnel, Meet the bad guy, bad guy is illusive, hard to catch, and pretty sure was ripped off from a die hard movie, then there's a betrayal you can count on that. cliffhanger wannabe ending after a sad 2-3 hour gameplay and voila that is what Call of Duty feels like to me. I know people may ...more

After having to repeatedly watch the Ad for Uncharted on YouTube it reminded me of how sick I am of these Next Gen games. I miss the old days of gaming with games like sonic the hedgehog, super Mario, and super smash bros, now we're stuck in the stupid age of video games, why? Because they're all just stupid first person shooters now. I have no desire to buy an Xbox one, PlayStation 4 or any of the generic crappy games they have, this reason is why I've almost completely stopped playing video games. All next Gen games and consoles need to go die in a fire and we need to bring back the awesome old games

The thing that I hate about this game is the design. Why can't we have a well made, UNIQUE game that challenges us? Five nights at Freddy's has been hated on as well, but that's because the horror is a particular style. SL was a really refreshing change for the series, but people still hate on it for not having the ability to move around, maybe you should actually play the game! This game is so much worse. Why can't they change up the series?! Honestly I haven't played it, but watching my friends play it looks so repetitive! And the games don't change. We need different maps, different, weapons, and different mechanics! And maybe just a touch of creativity? I understand if you like this game, and this is totally my opinion, feel free to like what you want, but this is my opinion.

2 Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

I don't understand why anyone would like this game. First of all, nothing exciting ever happens. You dig around, fight the same 6 enemies, and then you build stuff. It consumes more time than almost any other video game, and it doesn't even have skills or levels besides making better armor and weapons. Even then, there isn't anything to do with all that stuff. You only need armor and weapons to fend off those same repetitive enemies. There isn't any goal within the game. All you do is build and add on to whatever you build, then build something else. There is no story, no characters to get attached to, not even a diversity in weapon choice. As for the graphics, I don't care about those. There are far better games with graphics like like, and they were all made 20 or more years ago. Yet even with all of this, people are still obsessed with this game. I wouldn't care except I can't escape this damn game. It's everywhere on YouTube, Xbox and people even talk about it all the time. I ...more

Now , people calm down , java edition I must say is very popular , and millions of people play it every day , and I can see how it could get boring , because many people don't have building ideas , but it is not overrated.

I am a true lover of Minecraft yet I can still recognize that it's overrated. The game really only appeals to those who participate in one of mankind's greatest abilities: building stuff. That's the basis of the game with some survival elements and unfortunately, more and more RPG elements. I stopped updating after 1.3.2 because I had enough of that bull.

The idiots below me are but simple haters who refuse to understand why someone could like this game. It's "a ripoff of legos", yet LEGO actually ripped off someone else, and they ripped off bricks. Anyways, Minecraft is similar to LEGOs in one way: you build. And that's not something you can rip off.

As for the graphics, I'm sure they were beta graphics but weren't updated because either A)Notch didn't care and/or B)they were reminiscent of the good ol' days. I personally like the 8-bit graphics and they're much quicker to load, the game couldn't handle more advanced graphics since EVERY THING IS INTRACTABLE.

One ...more

I honestly don't understand how this got so popular. I own the game on my laptop, but barely play it. I don't even understand how people make a profession out of it. I feel it's just boring, you can't do much. You get items to survive and fight monsters. It's pretty generic in my eyes. Then you fight the boss, which I've never actually done, so I can't say much. I've known people to complete this game in a few days. There aren't any side quests/missions either, so you're just back to square one after that. It lacks variation and has a terrible fanbase. There are still people in my class obsessing over it like twelve year olds' and singing parodies of songs. Makes me cringe.

3 Angry Birds Angry Birds Product Image

Ruined by crappy Angry Birds themed shovelware made after Angry Birds 2, especially the recent ones with the movie character designs (Dream Blast, Match 3, Action/Explore etc.). Also, the Hatchlings (including the blue birds from the originals) have been oversaturated to death to the point where they only exist to sell more merchandise.

Angry Birds was a fun, simple game at first... But then it happened... The Angry Birds movie came out. While the movie it's self was enjoyable, ever since then, the franchise has become over saturated. Every single type of mobile game has been given an Angry Birds coat of paint. Every time I use my phone, I am attacked with ads for one of the new Angry Birds games, (done in the post-movie art style of course) which are always crap. Why can't they just update the old games with new content and leave it at that, no one wants to buy their stupid toys. If someone were to go pull out the Master Sword to travel seven years into the future, I swear the first thing they will see is a huge sign advertising the sixth installment into the Angry Birds cinematic universe!

I'm probably gonna be hated for what I'm about to say? But, I HATE THIS GAME WITH A PASSION! This game is more repetitive as Call of Duty! It's the same thing almost every time! The pigs steal there eggs. Then the birds get angry and attack them. Then they have a new update where it's the same thing all over again! Can't the pigs just find something else to eat!?! They don't have to eat the grass! Can't they just go to McDonald's or something!?! And why the heck are they makeing these stupid crossovers!?! With Rio and StarWars!?! Can't they think of something more creative!?! Just please end this Franchise!

I don't play Angry Birds that much anymore. I'm starting to realize that Rovio only makes Angry Birds. Yes, it's true that they made Juice Cubes, Amazing Alex, The Croods, Tiny Theif & Retry, but there's only one game in each franchise. Do you see what I'm talking about? I think it's time for Rovio to work for another company. They're showing an example of what would happen if Nintendo only worked on Mario. Speaking of Nintendo, I'm going to decide whether Rovio should be bought by Nintendo, or not. Although, I think they should.

4 Fortnite Fortnite Product Image

THIS GAME WAS SO OVERRATED. People at school don't talk about anything but Fortnite. I used to play Fortnite. My cousin and my classmates told me to play this game and praised it highly, so I did. It was okay, but it wasn't as good as my cousin and classmates were saying it was. I don't get how people are so addicted with this game. Kids at my school are downloading it on their phones and secretly playing it in their classes. This game took over Twitch, YouTube, and was even part of that horrible YouTube Rewind from 2018.The reason I said "WAS OVERRATED" is because to be honest, this game is dying. I only played about 1-2 seasons and then got bored of it. I stopped playing, and even my cousins and friends stopped playing Fortnite. I don't think this game will be overrated by the end of 2019 and 2020, because the last Fortnite game I played had 36 players instead of 100. Yes, you heard that right. 36 PLAYERS.

I was going to vote for Call of Duty, but then I saw this. This game is only famous for being famous. I asked a friend why he likes Fortnite so much, and he said it's so he can fit in. I have nothing against people who like Fortnite, but I seriously doubt anyone would like it this much if it wasn't considered cool. I tried to get into this, but I couldn't. I thought it was so boring. It's average at best, and the seasons are nothing more than cosmetics. I didn't like Mortal Kombat's Kombat Pack or Street Fighter V's seasons, but at least they added something important to the game. I can find fun in games like Cheetahmen, but I don't find Fortnite fun at all.

This should be number one! It's just a game about shooting people to be the last one standing and then doing some stupid dance afterwards. Last year, every boy at my school was talking about how awesome it was, and it got on my nerves so hard! It got so crazy, my english teacher even made us read a reading passage about Fortnite and answer questions on the back! Really? This game got a Monopoly version. Wow, just wow. Now, let's stop talking about Fortnite and how "awesome" it is, and let's go play an actual good game that can help us sweat and have fun. Who's up for Just Dance?

I have heard so much about Fortnite from kids at my school. So, because of that, I played it. I will admit, it wasn't horrible, but even still, this game is ridiculously overrated. I don't see how people are so addicted to this game. If I had to give this game a star rating, I'd give it a 6/10, and that's being generous. If I wanted to factor the fan base into the star rating, it would be a 3/10. I don't find it as fun as everyone else, nor do I find it addicting. In fact, if this game were to close, I wouldn't care. Enough is enough about this game, there's better games out there.

5 Five Nights at Freddy's Five Nights at Freddy's Product Image

Five Nights at Freddy's. Five Nights at Freddy's. All I hear about is Five Nights at Freddy's! Yes the first game may be entertaining, but once that sequel came out...oh geez. And don't even get me started on the fandom. People use Five Nights at Freddy's. All you gotta do, is make something that has NOTHING to do with Five Nights at Freddy's, randomly copy and paste animatronics into the video, and boom. A ton of subscribers. And the ships, oh lord the ships. If they didn't exist, the world would be a much better place. Don't people know that it's kinda strange to ship ROBOTS? Guess not. Anyways, Five Nights at Freddy's is too popular, and quite frankly too rushed. Four games in one year? Now that my friend, is something called no effort. Five Nights at Freddy's is taking over our world. I won't be surprised if there is merchandise, a T.V. show, a movie, a book, an anime, and so on.

Now, first, I can understand why people like the first game. There are times when the suspense and unpredictability mixed with a sudden jump-scare can be scary. The idea of killer animatronics is original and is done decently. But now, it just feels like most sequels are just cash-grab rehashes of the original. The animatronics are always the same, just with slight design alterations. Same goes for the concept. Oh, and there is always one small alteration in mechanics, so people will immediately attack you if you even DARE to say that the games are repetitive. But by God, the worst aspect of FNAF is the fandom. It seems that everything even slightly horror-related will immediately have a horde of rabid fangirls attacking it and raping it with atrocious fan art that erases ANY scare factor whatsoever. It's not the worst game, by far, but PLEASE. THERE IS BETTER STUFF OUT THERE. THERE ARE BETTER MODERN HORROR GAMES OUT THERE. STOP BEATING A LONG-DEAD HORSE.

This game has so many plot holes and yet so much hype, where do I begin.. A problem I have with this game is that it gives you little to no motivation on why you should continue going to that same job. There's always another job you can go to earn money, The characters are lazily made, you can clearly see Bonnie is just a recolor of Freddy, just with bigger ears and he's purple. And the fandom, SWEET JESUS THE FANDOM. Everybody just bows down to their lord and savior Smike, and half of the people who make unoriginal animations for it are only famous because of the hype. So they just jump on the band wagon and whaddya know? 1 million views! I'm not going to say any names, but some of you know who the people that I'm speaking of, ugh. I really hope the third is his last, and I honestly have no idea how this isn't at least in the top 30.

Looking for the most overrated game ever? Look no further. This game oozes overratedness. Think of Night Trap, without the traps. All you do is look at cameras and prey the power holds off for more that five seconds. There have been FOUR games in the past year PLUS a new spin off series by the same developer (not even discussing the fan made games). The game is boring and the plot is too confusing to understand. The game has no redeeming factors. This game makes ET and Sonic 06 look good. The graphics are OK but graphics aren't everything. To make stuff worse, there is DLC, a new movie, and a book. First off, DLC for this poop. Second off, all movies up to this point suck and this game sucks so how will the movie be good. Finally, the only good game with a book series on it is Halo and no one really cares about the books (as good as they are). Five Nights has terrible game play, terrible plot, and everyone loves it. I hate this game with the passion of a thousand suns. I know if the ...more

6 Halo: Combat Evolved Halo: Combat Evolved Product Image

When Halo first came out, it was without a doubt THE coolest video game I owned. The story was immersive, the firefights were exciting, the enemies were incredible and the first contact with the flood was horrifying. Halo Combat evolved had this sense of mystery about it that no other FPS game I had ever owned could emulate... The wide variety of weapons, vehicles, and characters was mind blowing to me and I also loved that there was a slight horror element to Halo: CE. Keep in mind I was 10 when I first played so it did not take much to scare me. Then Halo 2 Came out... It felt forced, the plot twist were confusing and to be honest not that much fun to be dragged through. The slight element of horror that I thoroughly enjoyed was replaced with aggravation and impatience trying to wade through the annoying wave after wave of flailing armed Flood. I'm pretty sure they must've realized the exploding flood looked like a scrotum... then three came out... lets just say I'm glad it had a ...more

Let's make a quick recap:
Halo introduced the regenerating health bar trend (even if it's a regenerating shield, but you get the point), it introduced the whole "carry only 2 weapons crap", its story was unoriginal and pretentious, its main character is a lifeless shell, it's heavily unbalanced, the gameplay is mundane and slow-paced, the music is nothing special and overall, for a game whose tagline is "Combat Evolved", Halo did the exact opposite. How ironic, huh? So yes, Halo "Conbat (D) evolved" is not just massively overrated, it's also partially responsible for the downfall of shooters as we know it nowadays.

Halo 2 Anniversary and Halo 3 are some of my favorite games ever, but this first game just really doesn't shine much a torch. The only reason people in the Halo community call it a masterpiece is bacause it was really good for its time, but now? Its graphics have shown their age, the levels are repetitive and boring (mostly), the story is extremely simple, and the voice acting? meh, it's okay. I admire Bungie's 5 seconds of fun rule, and the gameplay is pretty solid (although 1/10 for multiplayer) against covies, but that does not warrant it as a great game, not by today's standards. I'd rather play Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare that this any day. All the Halos after, except maybe 5 (and spartan strike/assault) completely outdo it in every aspect.

Are people serious? How young are the people who are voting Halo 1 as overrated? It might feel to overrated to a gen Z who grew up playing newer shooters in 2010s, but when this game came out it deserved all the praise it got. Halo: Combat Evolved is one of the games that changed console gaming and it was still among the best shooters on PC when it was ported. Halo did to console shooters what Half-Life did to shooters in general.

7 World of Warcraft World of Warcraft Product Image

Everything you do in this game doesn't feel fun, it feels like a task, like when your teacher gives you a worksheet, this game makes you do the same thing, get mad and say "fine I'll do it" there is no enjoyment in doing quests, it feels like a job. Not even free roaming in this game is fun, everything in this game gets boring after 10 minutes, and once I got off I never had the urge to play it again, and it's been like 10 years since then

Way too overrated. Not fun at all. It feels and looks like a childish game. When I played the tutorial, I fell asleep at my computer. I tried to get into the game and just couldn't. I can't imagine dishing out tons of money for the constant expansions on top of the monthly fee. My friend's family lost their house due to paying for this game and in game items over their rent!

My friend sometimes plays it and he said that his guild was reforming so he decided to play again for the first time in months to get to max level and when he got on he was HACKED and everything he had was gone. I've never played it but I'm happy with Wii and DS.

Awful customer service, and is becoming one of America's most rediculous addictions. I know exactly why it's so appealing to people, but I hope someday they'll realize it's mediocre at best.

8 Flappy Bird

Floppy Bird Forgotten Description

WARNING: There is a high risk of you smashing up your device while playing! Can you handle the frustration?

I like how people were so angry about Nintendo seeing them for, oh I don't know, literally stealing backgrounds from them. The thing is it wouldn't have hurt them to be a little more unique with them instead of just being thieves. Nintendo had every right to sue they were stolen from.

You know what, half of this games are creativity you may hate this games graphic or whatever, don't matter these games qre just to good to play, but you what games are overrated? Those games like distiny because tgey just made to much trailers they did nothing, so yeah also please don't say naughty dog games are overrated because I saw some people said that

This game is so stupid and overrated. The people that get angry at this game play it EVEN MORE! You might as well become an addict. Also this game ripped off all textures from Super Mario Bros. Hopefully there will be a lawsuit.

9 Halo 3 Halo 3 Product Image

I take back what I said on my other account(potbellypup2)the game is awesome for machinimas and multiplayer, but single player never really lived up to it, I just felt like it was too overrated for my likings. But there again, that's my thought.

I give this an 8.0/10
Not even close to a classic to me. Me and my cousin Justin just dominate this on the hardest setting its really easy

Best halo EVER MADE, how can this even be on this list. It has a beautiful storyline and fun multiplayer.

The single player of this game it's AWFUL, and the multiplayer got nothing special, so why this game is so popular?

10 Roblox

I don't know if Roblox is really a game. It’s more of a platform with tons of different games on it. Roblox is a platform for creators to create their own games of any genre and for players to play games made by creators. Every game on Roblox is created by creators who use Roblox and not from the Roblox company itself.

This game is actually pretty okay. There are many mini-games on Roblox that should be a whole game on it's own, but then there are these scams and crappy click bait games that ruin the reputation of this game.

I used to love roblox , but its laggy , a lot of hackers , and it makes stupid 3 yo steal there moms credit card . Its kinda hopeless at this point.

I'm actually getting annoyed of the retarded 5 year old Minecraft players saying roblox is a copy of minecraft when first of all it came before minecraft and second of all the only reason they are alike is still a very weak reason to call them alike I mean just because one has bricks and building doesn't make them the same. This is usually how a conversation between a 5 yr old mincrafter and me goes: there are not guns in minecraft "UH IF U have MODZ" that is not what I'm saying "BUT U SED MINECRAFT NOT VANILLA MINECRAFT" Did I need to specify? "... YES" Okay in "vanilla" Minecraft there aren't guns "BUT U KAN AD MODZ" *facepalm* Are there circles in minecraft? "I THINK THER Is A MOD 4 that? ". See most minecraft players are retards who just need to realize that Roblox and Minecraft are different games and that roblox came before minecraft.

11 Grand Theft Auto V Grand Theft Auto V Product Image

Everything is too expensive and money is hard to get. Zero money from missions, you will only notice that you got money after the big score and final missions. Also, shark cards are overpriced, and hack detection is terrible. I found hackers even in good sport sessions!

This game has way too much junk in it, like over the top language sexuality and multiple others that really get in the way of any redeeming factors like the vast array of weapons and vehicles.

Singleplayer has amazing actors and story. Everything on single player is such fun. Multiplayer, get killed for no reason, hackers, steals from you. Grand Theft Auto V is the worst ever game to play online. Also is it the best. NO! The greatest Grand Theft Auto game is Grand Theft Auto: SAN Andreas and people say that this is the best Grand Theft Auto of all time. But because of the multiplayer, this is the most overrated game of all time. Can't there be different types of servers you can choose from, basically let the sociopaths kill each other and let the normal people on a different, but that won't work either because of trollers.

People in my class say that this is the best game ever and every game sucks besides this one. It is ok I guess but trust me it is missing a lot and I mean a lot of stuff compared to San Andreas such as:

The jetpack (which is being found right now)
Fast Food restaurants and hunger.
Crouching (even Vice City had this one)
Vigilante Mode!?
Turf wars
Radio Stations were much better in San Andreas.
So Grand Theft Auto V is not the only good Grand Theft Auto game out there and remember that too!

12 Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy VII Product Image

It's an okay game, but it hardly deserves all the praise it's gotten. The storyline is somewhat interesting, but the graphics are terrible, the gameplay rather boring, the main character is very unlikable and the villain has no personality or motive. I can't say I actually cared when Aerith died either, she was a pretty annoying character, in my opinion. There are so many other Final Fantasy games that are better, but for some reason they're always overshadowed by this one. I've never understood why.

This game has a special place in some people's hearts and I understand that. For most it was the first game they put 100+ hours into and so, understandibly there is a lot of nostalgia surrounding this game. And it's because of that nostalgia that this game is so grossly overrated and here are the reasons why. A: The story is only okay. It isn't bad but it certainly is far from a master piece. Many characters linger to long in 2 dimensional mediocrity and certain plot points move far too slow B: The gameplay only allows 3 people party set ups and the materia system makes some party members useless altogether. It isn't bad per say but it's FAR from being the best JRPGS have to offer. C: visually it has aged very poorly. Some sequences or rooms look downright ugly to todays standards. Games both older and younger hold up better. D: other ff games do it all better *cough ff6 cough*

Final Fantasy VII is a good game but it's too overrated. When people think of Final Fantasy they think of a guy with blonde spiky hair (Cloud) or a silver-haired man with a thin long sword (Sephiroth). They don't think of a blonde guy with a monkey tail (Zidane) or a guy with a scar on his face (Squall). Final Fantasy isn't just about VII it's about the entire franchise as a whole. In fact, Final Fantasy IX is easily the best Final Fantasy game. It's way better and more fun to play than VII.

I have never really been a fan of Final fantasy games. They're way too linear for me and the characters are usually brooding doofs and the game is an insufferable 50 plus hours. I never feel like I am playing a game, I feel like I am watching an interactive movie. I don't like ANY of the characters (except maybe one but they killed her) everything is so bland and drab and emo-y I just...oh my god this game is boring and lame. I will never understand the love for this game. I would rather play FNAF. at least that's only like 3 hours long and then I can have my life back.

13 Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV Product Image

Ok, I'll admit that the graphics, story, characters, and other things in the game are really great, but some of the things I felt where lacking were controls, gameplay, and the fun factor, rockstar made a bold move by striving for realism and although most people enjoyed this game because of that, I think it was a mistake, when looking around the city, it can be really nice, but one you've seen what there is needed to be seen, it doesn't really matter anymore and I think rockstar focused more on the visuals and story rather than the core mechanic of a video game, the gameplay, if I wanted a great story or beautiful graphics, I could always watch it on youtube, I always thought when creating a video game, it should always be gameplay as first priority and then story and graphics that revolve around that, not the other way around.

Incredibly overrated. The style is utterly unappealing with muted colours and character models that look like they've been converted from the PS2 era. The story is a crock with characters I don't care for and no emotional attachment as a result. But mainly it's the gameplay that stinks the most. Loose driving controls that make you feel like you're on an ice rink, a mission structure which restarts the mission every time you lose (which can be particularly annoying when those missions are long), repetitive tasks, a dull open world environment that doesn't reward exploration, areas that are so dark it is hard to see and even worse, the gameplay has worsened from previous installments. Gone are the multiple creative weapons, the fun open world and everything else and in its place is a game which is a hollow shell of previous installments. The only reason this was rated so highly was because of brand name only. Thankfully Chinatown Wars (my favourite Grand Theft Auto game) and V came ...more

I like this game. I really do. There is some fun in it. But it still has plenty of flaws. The ridiculously violent pedestrians that can mob and kill you very quickly. The dull, overly gray, and monotonous-looking city. The surprisingly slow cars that turn the road into butter. The repetitive missions. The epilepsy-inducing camera that spins whenever you make even the slightest turn. Is it an enjoyable game? For the most part. Is it worthy of being the #1 most sold Xbox-360 game of all time? Definitely not, especially with standards rising highly these days.

Is it a good game? Of course... Is it a 10/10 rated game? Absolutely not.

The game got an amazing graphics upgrade since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but San Andreas overcomes Grand Theft Auto 4 in everything else.

What you got first in Grand Theft Auto 4 is a lack of gameplay, the controls are bad and also when you drive car you feel like driving over ice. Most of missions are fun at first, but then they're all the same: You drive a car, get some guns, and shoot to kill people. While Grand Theft Auto San Andreas has a lot of dynamism in its missions eg: Swim underwater, get a boat, hope a board a ferry, get some guns, kill people with guns, and then run away from heli shooting you missiles.

Also, in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas there are lot of things you can explore, since forest to nowhere desert, Grand Theft Auto 4 is just a city, nothing more, nothing less.

In Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, you felt like you can do almost everything, and you do... ...more

14 Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2 Product Image

The people that praise this game have no real argument for it being the "game of the decade". They say, you should have played it when it came out. Well first of all, the best game should be timeless and shouldn't ever feel boring or slow. Secondly, I thoroughly enjoyed the first game and it's counterparts, and I played that after the I played the second and expected it to be just as boring and dull, but it was actually really fun. The weapons were original and cool, they had more than 1 cool weapon unlike 2 with its "fantastic" weapon, the gravity gun which just ended up feeling like a gimmick. The game itself just felt as if it needed to show it's cool new engine rather than do anything else like make it not feel like a chore to play through where as the first actually had good gun play and decent story.

I didn't see how this game is overrated, because I enjoy every single minute of it, who say the story is the best? No one, who say the soundtrack is the best? No one too, then this stupid peoples commented how boring the game is and how overrated the game is. Half-Life 2 was just a regular game, gives us what is in game, there is no reason why game can be called "overrated", there could only be "good" or "bad", and the reviewer which is very talented in game says it is good, then it is good, you can't change their mind, but if you say the game is bad, the game is bad for you, and no one can change your mind, but for me, Half-Life 2 is perfect game not because of its story or songs, but any others more

Wait, hold on. This is here? The FPS of the century is on an overrated list? If anything, this game is underrated. Only true gamers agree with me. How can a 10/10 game be on this list? How can any Valve game be on this list? This is the game that improved on its predecessor which started a gaming revolution. This is the gaming version of the Last Supper painting. Whoever disagrees probably never had the chance to play it either because they were too into Barbie dolls or that their friends were having so much fun with the game and never gave them a chance to play.

I played them when they were released and I dunno what world some of the people posting were living in but the first really wasn't that mind blowing at all. Doom and its sequel were better games level design, atmosphere and fun wise, and came out about 5 years before it. Hell they even ripped the story off from it and Doom barely even had one to begin with. That's what you're trying to say is impressive about it? They're both pretty generic in that regard Half-life just flushed it out a little more and gameplay wise was very boring and weak. But it was rendered in 3d so I guess it was the best fps ever made? It's presentation was nice but it was severely lacking in other areas in my opinion. Half-life 2 was just more of the same for me, gameplay just was not fun and the story was as generic as ever

15 Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Product Image

Easily the most overrated FNaF Game. It's honestly my least favorite FNaF Game and it's almost always number one. (Yeah, I even think 3 is better)

Why isn't this higher on the list? Pokemon Red is higher than this and it isn't anywhere near as hated as this game and series

I hate any five nights at freddy's game

The worst game case picture I ever saw.

Well, this was unexpected. I thought this game was pretty much unknown, I guess not. Personally I liked the game. Sure in terms of story line and roster, the game isn't to great, but I just feel it had a more genuine wrestling feel to it (and by genuine I mean the way the wrestlers interact with their opponents, allies, and the audience). But that's just my opinion. Both TNA and WWE suck nowadays, but I pop this game in every once in a while and it still makes me smile.

WWE games are better than TNA because they got better control skills and better storylines! Plus, I hate TNA Impact Wrestling!

If it's so overrated, then how come I've never heard of it?

God damn this game. Was terrible. Why is Grand Theft Auto sa. On here

17 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

Honestly one of the most overrated rpg games. Boring characters, lackluster gameplay, a bland story, repetitive sidequests. It's just super generic in general, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and The Witcher 3 are infinitely better RPGs

Lazy uninspired quests, annoying amounts handholding, melee combat is just braindead mouseclicking, magic system is far to simple, crafting system is uninteresting, being a dragonborn just lets you use underwhelming shouts that have long cooldown times (really makes you feel special, huh? ). The whole time I played the game I just kept thinking about how it could have been better. People were surprised when Fallout 4 was terrible, but the game is essentially it's precursor. Everything wrong with Fallout 4 was in Skyrim first. This game just has no substance.

What makes this game special is nothing but a grand illusion. Hundreds of repetitive quests where 90% of the time it's you and you only killing an entire clan. And where most people do more than 85% of them. Because if you do, it is mostly an extremely unrewarding grind. As well as being high leveled means your character no longer resembles what you wanted them to be seeing skyrim is an RPG. You become the only character in the game who actually means something. No one else in the game does anything but walk around and talk, wearing the same ugly outfits, telling you to massacre a whole fort because they lost their pathetic iron sword. And it doesn't matter what armor or weapons you use, or what level, you will be no stronger or weaker than before, so there goes any challenge. Yet no one is a match compared to the mighty dragonborn: Talk about being overpowered feeling like an alien with strong armor on with strong weapons. Unlike anyone else having higher than steel. You're Leader of ...more

Damn we got so many graphics freaks coming in and crying about how sky rim has a minor glitch here and there. Now I would actually care if sky rim just refused to work, but it doesn't. It's like with Fallout 4 (except more people like Skyrim) we get it bugs look funny and can take you out of the immersion, but that doesn't make the game any worse.

18 Candy Crush Saga

Play the better Bejeweled made by Popcap, who also made the amazing Plants vs Zombies! Not swipe the candy with microtransactions.

Oh my god. This game should take the cake out of any of these. It displays everything wrong with the mobile industry today. You have to pay for everything, and the gameplay is so uninspired. King is a second biggest mobile developer today (niantic recently beat them to the top spot), but they really don't deserve it. How could this game be number 33?

Bejeweled is way better in my opinion. There are countless games that have this genre of gameplay, but everyone I know say Candy Crush is the best one. Hell, every friend of mine on facebook plays this game! It has brainwashed every people's mind and they even dare to buy with real money FOR EXTRA LIFES! *facepalm*

I don't understand how people think this is a good game. It's terrible there are so many ads. If you run out of lives you have to wait for them to renew or some people pay for them. Why does a game like this have lives anyway?

19 Undertale Undertale Product Image

It is a good game, but it's so overrated, even when excluding the atrocious fanbase. It focuses a lot on story (which is great), but the gameplay is not. Basically the opposite of Nintendo. While the graphics are charming, they're also way too simplistic in many areas and it takes away immersiveness, especially for a game made in 2015. Did I mention the gameplay? This is a game that's only that great the first time you play it through, after that it becomes repetitive as heck. Monsters come from nowhere, it's littered with unnecessary dialouge (again it's only good the first time), and it's all just way too easy! The only not-easy parts are a few boss battles, but come on, I want challenging puzzles! Overall, Undertale is good thanks to the story which is very versatile, but the gameplay ruins replays for me

Only 33?! Come on! The graphics are so unimpressive, clearly the only reason why It is 2D is to cash in on the nostalgia of the older generation, the so called "nice guy monsters who you're supposed to give mercy to" make Porky Minch look like Tails, the dialog never made me laugh, just groan out of the sheer stupidity. And worst of all, despite being a huge ripoff of the Mother series, the only thing they "forgot" to copy is the love for your parents who always welcome you home. And by parents, I mean the real ones, who raised you, not just a bunch of strangers, who you've talked for, like, two seconds. The only two good things in this game are the music and the final boss!
This game should be burning in Hell, along with the people who created It!

These are the reasons why Undertale is not only the most overrated game ever, but why it is the WORST game ever.

1) Sans. Worst. Character. Ever. How can a skeleton be fat? And his puns are AWFUL! All the characters are pretty terrible though. Sans is just the worst.

2) Graphics. Looks like it was made in 1999. Hard to believe considering it was made recently.

3) The story. Are you kidding me? It's like the most uncreative, stupid story ever made. Just search it up.

4) It's boring. All of the things above make it boring.

Overall, Undertale is an overrated and terrible game. 0/10

The infamously horrible fanbase is one problem, but I don't get WHY this game got so popular! Boring, tedious sparing nonsense in Pacifist, Genocide trying way too hard to make you regret PLAYING THE GAME and Neutral, the least boring route having a crappy ending makes it a nuisance to play no matter what you do! Music? Good, yes, but many other RPGs (Mario and Luigi, Bravely Default etc.) have much more enjoyable music. Story? Confusing FNAF-ish nonsense designed to drag in crazy theories just like FNAF did. Characters? A creepy little kid with no personality at all, an overprotective goat lady and a pun addicted skeleton are just a few "awesome, interesting" characters. To end it off, play something else, folks. Time better spent.

20 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

Yeah, I know Super Mario 64 was 'the best game ver and the collets and blah blah blah', but that game is seriously more overrated than this. 64 did bring Mario to 3D, had decent music, and revolutionized, and it's nostalgic, but Super Mario Galaxy's graphics were ahead for a Wii game, not to mention a 2007 Wii game. It also had some of the best musical scores to any video game- instead of beeps, it was orchestrated symphonies. It also was such a unique game among other Mario games because it had depth, story, and atmosphere. I truly believe this game deserves as much praise as it gets.

I grew up with this game and I really like it, but I think that sometime this game has really good ideas and instead of expanding upon it in the entire level, they for example introduce you to the bomboos at the start of the level and never use this cool enemy until the boss at the end, where they could have made an entire level based around bomboos. That's why I like Galaxy 2, 3d World, and Odyssey more: their level-design have a better focus.

...I don't know how anyone can find this game overrated. This game is absolute magic - hell just listening to the soundtrack brings me tears of joy. Whereas The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time IS dated nowadays and gets way too much praise - far more than it deserves - this game DOES deserve the praise it gets because doesn't look a day old and is far more fun to play than OOT's overlong dungeon slogs.

To the fans defending this game, just because y'all don't think that it's overrated, don't mean that it isn't. Kardashian fans don't think that the kardashians are overrated. That don't mean that they aren't. People that aren't blind fanboys nor blind fangirls would know that they are overrated. It's called common sense.

21 Candy Crush

That's why there are a lot of girls in the world.

It is overrated as hell and is on here twice.

So overrated it's on here twice

22 Among Us

Now I am truly sick of this game all people talk about is this game. In lobbies people make sex jokes and kids do annoying things and people who refuse to play the game. Every match unless you actually have friends usually people who are in random chats leave the match. People accuse you for no reason and kick you out. Also this game is ruining meme comps like covid. Also they make bad jokes related to this game in youtube comments. The fanbase yes even makes porn of among us. Also the mini crewmate meme are annoying not cute

Like fall guys I'm sick of hearing about the game the game is very basic you walk around fixing stuff until a couple people die do a meeting to find who is the bad one and then kick em out rinse and repeat until you win.
Edit the game isn't that boring I played it and there is more depth this is than I realized.

It's a good game 8/10 for me. the only problem is a bunch of people voted my cousin and he said they cheated. It's better than fortnite

I genuinely like this game. It's fun but no where near one of the best video games ever made. What I hate the most is the fanbase made up of annoying 11-17 year olds and the memes are garbage.

23 Pokemon Go

People were literally putting their lives in danger over this game. But the concept is pretty cool, you get to be a trainer in real life.

Honestly those people playing that don't know about Pokemon, THERE's NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

Nothing wrong with everyday people actually getting exercise having loads of fun and meeting people and socializing at the same time to distract from how bad life is.

I LOVE Pokemon, always have, but these entitled snobs making fun of people hopping on the trend getting mad because OTHER PEOPLE like this game, these guys all need to shut up.

Otherwise Pokemon Go, GREAT GAME.

Overrated game! My classmates talks about this game everyday even though they didn't even know much about Pokemon. As a Pokemon fan, I'm really dissapointed at this game for killing many innocent peoples, glad I'm stayed away from it.

While I do admit that I'm not the biggest Pokémon fan (the idea is still cool, but the games don't interest me), I got this game to see how good it was, and it's actually pretty fun. Not the best, but still fun. I don't go everywhere all the time to get Pokémon. I just play it casually. I see it as overrated, but I understand personal opinion. People just need to pay attention on the roads. PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE WHILE YOU DRIVE OR CROSS THE STREET! THIS IS THE REASON MANY ACCIDENTS AND INCIDENTS ARE HAPPENING IS BECAUSE OF THIS GAME! I like the game, but just uggh! It makes me mad to hear people being robbed, stalked, or hit by cars over this game. If it keeps happening, then I wonder if Nintendo would just remove the game from the app store.

Good game, but people need to pay attention while they walk or drive.

24 Slender: The Eight Pages

As everything indie and in the "horror" category, this game spawned a plethora of youtubers faking their emotions and exagerating the "spookyness" (I'm looking at that cancerous trio of weirdos with dyed hair). And as always, their fanbase wanted to play what they were playing, and the internet got flooded with that "game" for as long as the hype lasted. Dull gameplay, lame story. Without these people, we wouldn't even know about this game.

This game got the recognition it has because of the millions of videos that people put on youtube when playing this game. And when PewDiePie posted such videos, almost everyone started playing it. To be honest, I did try it myself to see if it was scary as many claimed to be. I was dissapointed. At least the sequel has more scary parts than this one.

It's not scary and very predicted and dull. Shame on players. You can only have fear for first and ONLY FIRST time playing game. Also, even if you get all pages, you'll still die.

It's a half assed game at best and an advanced screamer at worst. There's one poorly constructed level that you can only win through repetition and memorization rather than actual skill.

25 The Sims The Sims Product Image

Why is this on here this series is amazing. Sims 1 is great, Sims 2 was a huge step up, Sims 3 is the best of the series, and Sims a huge step DOWN. But the rest (especially TS3)? AMAZING! There are no goals to the gameplay, the game doesn't end, and it's not about shooting enemies (that gets boring really fast). Sims for the win!

On my opinion,this is one of the best games of all time.True,i don't know what they are saying.But at least that way,they won't be able to say anything not for kids.And for everyone who is complaining about it's too realistic like when they shower,well,they censored it and they DON'T have nudity in it! Check the rating! It says rated teen! Not Mature! And none of the deaths are gory or scary! I think it's educating! But not on stuff like school! Sorry if I'm mean or anything

This game is incredibly boring and repetitive, social interactions are so meaningless, the nonsensical gibberish gets on my nerves, and taking care of the characters seems no different to me than taking care of a baby, for me this is the most overrated game ever.

There's just one thing I have against, and it's a big one. YOU CAN LITERALLY CAN DO THE THINGS YOUR DOING ON THE SIMS IN REAL LIFE! How did this series get so popular? It can't be let's players because this was way before that. Please, someone tell me.
