Most Overrated Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Call of Duty

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.

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 worst thing about Call of Duty is it's haters. Their obviously more annoying than the fanboys. All they do is talk about how it sucks and Battlefield or Halo are better. There is a reason Call of Duty is in the top ten best selling video game franchises. Everybody views the fans as five year olds when in reality its 12-20 year olds. The campaigns are amazing ( The Modern Warfare series for example ). The multiplayer is mostly people without mics so you do not need to worry about the so called "ten year olds" that scream into their mics. The zombies/spec ops are unique features of the franchise that not a lot of other fps games have. So overall a good game. Not one of the best, but it is definitely good. And NO I do not hate Pokemon.

Call of Duty is basically an interactive movie. And for a movie, the gameplay is ok. But the most important thing is story. Most of Call of Duty games are just mindless popcorn blockbuster. Black Ops 1+2 were great, but the rest of the series are mediocre games. But, what bugs me is that how people say that 1st, 2nd and 4th games are better than others. They're not. Some people tell me, you should've played it when it came out. I did. I remember the time it came out, it was nothing special for me even then. Treyarch at least tries to do something different, darker and story-based, but all the IW games are awful.

2 Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

I used to be OBSESSED with Minecraft, I still kind of like it, but I definitely think it's overrated.
Survival mode gets a little boring after a while, and while, yes, creative mode is fun to get...well...creative! But, I'm not the best builder, and once you're done with it, what do you do except show it off to your friends, and just stare at it, endlessly using the features you might've happened to add into it.
And don't tell me "Dude, get mods, and you'll have more fun." I WISH I could do that. All the mods and maps and stuff I see YouTubers showing off is on PC, I play it on an Xbox, I don't even have a PC, I have a Laptop, with only dumb rip-offs in the App Store. I CAN buy and check out some maps and stuff in the MarketPlace, but still.
Minecraft is definitely fun, but it's really overrated.

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

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.

It's a good game, but excessively overrated. I prefer fall guys, but I also like this game. But the problem is that there are too many videos on it. 6.1/10

3 Fortnite Fortnite Product Image

IT SUCKS! I normally do quick 1 line comments but I feel like now is the time to do a big rant on Fortnite. It started in 2017 when it was released and people played it like CRAZY! It was the first thing mentioned by Will Smith in Youtube Rewind 2018 ( Which is the official most garbage video on youtube. Which is where Fortnite belongs. IN THE TRASH!) Anyway, in 2019 I could not go anywhere without somebody yelling do a Fortnite dance or do you play fortnite or even: when are you on fortnite tonight? I don't even play Fortnite! In 2020 it just stopped. I moved school and I know that the school was sick of Fortnite so they banned pretend Fortnite in the playground and also banned Fortnite merch like lunchboxes nand backpacks. people still play it but it is less popular now and I play Among Us and it should stay that way. They say that they made an Among Us version of Fortnite. THE COPYCATS!

Way too popular, literally every id this day only likes this game and thinks every other game sucks, when in reality, their are much better games out their like the Final Fantasy, Halo, Ratchet & Clank, Fable, Grand Theft Auto, God of War, and of course Mario. Fortnite sucks and this deserves to be number 1, it's so bad it makes the entire Fire Emblem series look like Super Mario Galaxy 2.

I played fortnite a few times, and The biggest problem I have with this game is it's constant amount of updates it keeps getting, every season brings a lot of unnecessary new features, and most of the cosmetics in this game are overpriced, and the guns in this game are completely unbalanced, fortnite is decent, but not an amazing game.

Fartnite is just another boring, pointless shooting video-game where all you do is, you guessed it, kill people, wow! How crearive! We have never seen THAT before, (Call of Duty, Overwatch, TF2). I don't understand why people get so excited about this game, is it because it'a free? Are you that poor that you can't buy a decent game? GTA V for example, offer a much better playing experience because it has a ton of stuff to do so it's rarely gets boring. to think that this is what the human race has evolved to praise, it's a shame.

4 Angry Birds Angry Birds Product Image

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!

Ruined by one of the games on this list called Fortnite. Why? Well, at the end of the second movie based off this video game series, Chuck the fast yellow bird is seen doing the hype dance from Fortnite. Because of Fortnite ruining Angry Birds; one of my childhood favourite games, I have never played it ever again since. Fortnite is my least favourite game. Keep in mind that movie was made by the same company as the Emoji Movie, in which it also got indirectly ruined for me by Chuck hyping or made even worse for some other people since they hate both Emoji movie and Fortnite. Fortnite in fact ruins childhoods, nowhoods or entire lives.

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.

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.

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

I am kind of a Fnaf fan, but it's mostly because I find the story behind it interesting, (come to think of it, the story is probably the reason it's so popular) and I read the books. But I really don't like the game itself. it's SO BORING! You just sit, in one spot, check the cameras, turn on the lights, close the doors, repeat. Fnaf 2 is just a brain-sweating glob of multitasking, Fnaf 3 is the just as brain - melting as its predecessor, and Fnaf 4 is, OK. The next two games are good.
This series is interesting, but very overrated, and with the announcement of a 7th game and the rumored movie, this franchise isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

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.

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

So, the other day, I went to my friend's house. We are huge video game fans, but I hate horror games and he likes them. So, as I've done before, I say, "Let's go play Mario Kart! " or, "Let's go play Minecraft! " or, "Let's go play Undertale! " Etc. But, instead, he says, "No, let's play FNaF! It'll be fun! " And guess what? It wasn't fun. At all. It was terrifying at first, but things got very old very quickly. I was bored and tired of it. And so, when I went home, I looked on YouTube to watch some gaming videos. And, what do you know, ALL of my favorite gaming channels were overrun by this game! I texted to my friends that this game was extremely overrated, and they got very mad very fast. There were so, so, so many people who posted things on YouTube saying how amazing, scary and deep this game was. So, I slammed my laptop shut.

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

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.

In fact, I don't really think it's overrated. Halo 3 is my favourite game of all time and all the games are also great. You don't really get screaming little kids on multiplayer, the worst you get is someone putting a vacuum cleaner in their mic, which you can easily solve by muting the chat. Job done. Great offline and online multiplayer, amazing storyline and NOT a horrendous fanbase. I may not have gone deeper into the fanbase, but by actually playing the multiplayer for the last 3 games, the people are OK.

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!

World Of Warcraft - Tearing Familys apart sense November 23, 2004.

Don, t bereave me?
All you have to do is look it up on you tube such as:
* "The Greatist freakout ever" (That Freakout Kid looks like Justen Beber! )
* "Wow Mom tells kid no more World of Warcraft Gold Guide"
Just a few examples...

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

When I first saw Flappy Bird I actually thought it was Super Mario Bros but with a bird. I actually thought it was by Nintendo just because it copied of Super Mario World. All you do is tap your phone screen and try to fly the bird in between pipes until you mess up. Back in 2013-2014 it was a trend but I'm glad this game is dead now.

The reason why people are addicted to this game, is because you'll mostly rage at the cheap deaths in this game and try again afterwards.

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.

9 Among Us

I played Among Us before it was popular and it was a fun and simple game at first, and back in the day, sus was never used and everyone in the lobby was nice. Then it happened. It quickly rose to fame out of nowhere and for that reason, I stopped playing it. The chat was even more toxic and they spammed "SUS" everywhere. I cannot go anywhere win YouTube without seeing the word "sus". This game went from an underrated masterpiece to a toxic wasteland in just one year.

Among Us is fun if you get mature people in the lobbies you play in which is very rare. Most of the people that play the game are trolls. They always spam "(insert color) is SUS!" without any evidence and everyone votes them out. When you start a game at least 4 to 5 people leave instantly because they were not picked to be the imposter. People always constantly call in emergency meetings for no reason and don't vote when it is time to vote. Ever since September 2020 it is literally everywhere. The hype for Among Us is really SUS.

I agree. Among Us is very overrated. It's literally Fortnite all over again. I don't get the hype of this at all. The game was literally made in 2018 and now all of a sudden it's popular in 2020. The game only got so popular because of some YouTubers playing it when there's nothing that special about it at all. And plus the memes aren't even that funny and they are overrated and all over the place.

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

10 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.

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?

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

The Newcomers

? Mario's Mystery Meat
The Contenders
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!

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.

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.

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.
Pool
Casino
Dating
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

When I bought this game, I felt straight up duped. I actually liked the storyline, but the combat is ruined by the real time elements that were integrated for no reason and the insanely low difficulty. You don't have the time to formulate a strategy, so I just spammed my magic moves which did insane amounts of damage. The problem is that because of the low difficulty, the game doesn't punish you for this and you slaughter everything in your path without a second thought with the exception of some bosses. The graphics lack color and look like mud! I could knock the game for its character design which took me out of emotional scenes, but the main thing I hate about this game is the open world area. It completely ruins the pacing of the game and literally has NOTHING interesting on is except a few hidden materia that you can't even get until late in the game. Encounters can happen here as a bonus so that when you inevitably get lost on the giant map, you can pull your hair out to get ...more

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.

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 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

I kind of think that Undertale deserves the attention it gets. Sure, go ahead and hate me for it, I don't care. People like different things, ya know? Personally, I really like Undertale. I liked the plot, I liked the characters, I liked the soundtrack... and so on and so forth. I can understand why people would dislike, however. I know that some people don't like the graphics and stuff, or the fandom ruins it for them. And yes, the fandom is pretty... strange. But just because a lot of people like it doesn't mean you should automatically think it's bad. Maybe you should give it a chance? At first, I thought that it was extremely overrated, and I thought it would be really bad. But I gave it a try, and well, I liked it. So yeah, you might not like it right away, or you might not like it at all, but hey, at least you tried!

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!

The game itself is pretty good, the mini-game combat mechanic is interesting, the writing is OK, the music is awesome (considering only one guy composed it) and in a gaming world full of FPS's and crappy "horror" indie games, it was refreshing to see a game that tried to be different, and had such a good story to tell, with multiple endings, too!. It was a good and refreshing game.

BUT the fanbase made it impossible for ANYONE to enjoy it. It was the most cancerous, immature, stupid fanbase I've ever seen, worse even than the Sonic fanbase, and comparable only to the MLP fanbase. They flooded the internet, it was Undertale and made people hate it. I am thankful that I got the chance to play it before the fanbase erupted, or else, I wouldn't have even touched it.

14 Friday Night Funkin'

It's a pleasure to see this in the top 21. I have been overexposed to this game not just from YouTubers, but also from my own siblings. I gave this game a shot and I did not enjoy it. It was hard for me to find the appeal for this game. It's hard to go on YouTube without finding some mod for this game. I would rather play Among Us tbh.

I 100% agres with y'all with this one. I hate this game. The music, the character design, the gameplay, the purpose. Its all not my type. I love rhythm games but this one is the worst. They oversexualize the girlfriend everywhere and they protect this piece of poop like it's a sacred artifact. I give this a 0.2/10

I can't go anywhere without seeing this game mentioned, This game is not good as people say, I think fortnite is better than this awful game.

I swear this game is to 2021 what FNAF was to 2014, Fortnite was to 2018, and Among Us was to 2020. It's EVERYWHERE. I mean, at least FNAF, Fortnite, and Among Us were good games. FNF is a DDR/StepMania clone, and it isn't even good at being that.

15 Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV Product Image

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

I would say the series as a whole is very overrated. Very fun games that have no value outside of that. I would argue V is more overrated than IV. 5 is a fine game but is praised HEAVILY because of sales figures and large map. Outside of that, its worse than 4. The story for 4 did get repetitive at times and the handling isn't great, the the story is really good.

16 Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2 Product Image

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

Half-Life 2? Wait what? Seriously people Half-Life 2? Wow guys! You guys are calling the best PC game overrated and it's not even funny. If you say it's overrated, repetitive, boring, weak story, etc, then you have no taste in FPS games. People say it's the multiplayer that makes the game good or it's the action that makes it good. Calling this game overrated is like calling an awesome YouTuber like NigaHiga (for example) overrated. I think this game should be rated higher in my opinion. I enjoyed every moment of it including the the parts people call 'overrated'. If you can't stand playing this game then you can't stand playing FPS games.

Who the hell put this masterpiece here. This masterpiece is the best FPS ever. Show me a game that have better graphics for it's year, a better story, better main character (Gordon Freeman is so badass), better character personalities, a weapon like the Zero Point Energy Manipulator (Gravity Gun), a wide variety of enemies (Metro cops, Overwatch soldiers, Elite Overwatch, Zombies, Headcrabs, Striders, Hunters, Gunships, Antlions, Choppers and many more, a character like G-man... If you show me a game that have all of this I will... wait... that's impossible. You cannot find a better game! Half-Life 2 is the best game ever! This masterpiece should be ranked higher.

17 Candy Crush Saga

I never played Candy Crush but I think this game is like a drug. When people started to play this they could not stop playing it and even if they said that they would not spend real money for extra moves but they ended up spending real money for more moves and even just to play it longer.

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?

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?

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*

18 Kingdom Hearts Kingdom Hearts Product Image

Kingdom Hearts is mediocre and the fanbase sucks worse than the game itself (most of you fans that I talked to can go fly a kite). Great characters? It's easy to assume that generic characters like in KH are awesome when you know so little characters from other games and Sora is a goofball, not to mention the other characters are stagnant throughout the game. Great story? More like boring. What also makes this game dull is the technical problems and gummi ship mini-game garbage. The side quests are hardly things that would make this game worthy of my time. All in all, it's nothing but a generic action rpg series that's meant to make Square (the worst game developer so far) money.

I used to love kingdom hearts, but looking back it wasn't very good at all. I liked the second one, but the rest were kinda crap, and don't get me started on kingdom hearts 3. I actually had a feeling it might be pretty good, but it was a complete disappointment, and one of the worst games I ever played. And just to make it clear, I am a massive fan of jrpgs. I love final fantasy and Dragon quest, I love in Japan and my wife is Japanese, but kingdom hearts, I honestly thought sucked. The only thing I liked about the series was the soundtracks by hikaru utada.

This series is the complete opposite to the Disney classics it is based off. Varied gameplay, inventive puzzle solving and non-linear exploration has been sacrificed for an overambitious storyline and over-dramatic combat.

How is this overrated? This is the second best game I've ever played. The only game that beats it is Kingdom Hearts II. It has a fantastic story, lots of days of play, and the gameplay, while a little repetitive at some points, is still great.

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

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

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)

No. BEST Five Five night's at Freddy's seires.
Better animatronics than 3 or 4. I can have my opnion.
But I admit this is overrated.

The worst game case picture I ever saw.

20 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

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

The story is weak and kills the Elder Scrolls lore.
Randomly generated dragons just become a chore after a while.
None of you're choices matter, no matter what side you pick nothing changes.
Stats and Attributes are gone, so no more acrobatics or magic scaling with INT so destruction is useless on highest difficulty.
Every side quest is some crappy fetch mission or go to this cave and kill the zombies.
Mages Guild/Thieves Guild quest lines are terrible.
This game doesn't deserve the praise it gets.

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

21 TNA Impact! TNA Impact! Product Image

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?

Wait, hold on. Did this exist or just an illusion?

22 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

Lots of people adore this game including myself but it honestly deserves the praise. People that hate this game can't even think of good reasons on why they think it's bad and just say they hate it because Rosalina and Peach are in it, it is overrated, or it does not have blood and shooting.

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.

23 Candy Crush

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

24 Pokemon Red Pokemon Red Product Image

PROS

+ Hey the classic is back
+ Childhood Memories, Fairly for kids that don't play mobile games or modern games
+ Good Story
+ Good Gameplay, You can create your team for challenge
+ Good Music
+ Good Graphics, Not so eyebleeding
+ No Intensionally Bad Words.

CONS

- Pokemon are not balanced like using HMs but the other latest modern Pokemon games still unbalanced.
- Not Recommended For Emulators & Modern Consoles

Terrible fanbase aside, what is wrong with game?
1. Graphics are bad. Do I need to explain?
2. Battle mechanics are broken. This gets worse when you learn that this game was in development for 3 years. Some great examples include focus energy doing the opposite of what is was programmed, Ghost types being ineffective against psychic types even though that was supposed to be the opposite, and everything missing 1/256 of the time.
3. Glitches. Just look up the Bulbapedia article on this. That's all I need to say.
4. Story. Compared to other games in this series, this seems the most lacking. Your rival (by the way has the default name of Blue which is incredibly lazy) is nothing but a big arrogant jerk. That wouldn't be bad, but he gets no character development at all. So why is everybody saving he's the best rival? Team Rocket's plans seem weaker than other teams in the series. It's just a poor story.
P.S. Fire Red fixed most of these problems, and I recommened it.

I would say all of Gen 1 is OVEREXPOSED! Game Freak are obssesed with Gen 1 pandering, but it got worse in Gen 6, yet even WORSE in Gen 7!

Nothing really wrong with these games on their own, but if it weren't for the newer games Pokemon would probably be the shallow, boring thing people think it is. Newer gens had better graphics, more Pokemon species so you get more of a choice, aspects like breeding, EV training, held items and new moves to give the game an insanely deep meta...and all you see is people complaining about how the new designs are bad. Each generation has well liked Pokemon and less popular ones, we get it, you don't have to love them all but they're all there no matter what and it can't be changed.

25 Super Mario Bros.

I'm not sure to call this game overrated or not. On one hand, there are zero "true fans" of Mario that say this game is the best in the series because admit it, since bros 3 (and I would argue lost levels but this is a very unpopular opinions) every games in the series did better in every way. I mean tell me ONE argument to why this game is the best in the series other than it's more original. On the other hand, there will always be nostalgia blinded people that stopped playing the series (and therefore are not "true fans") because they will never feel the same joy as when they play the first game. There is also the guys that never played video games except this one during it's 1985 glory.

The only reason this game is really popular is because it saved video games. True, but not just that can make it a good game. It's a good game, I think. Fun gameplay, great level design, and a memorable soundtrack. Just like Pokémon Red, it kickstarted one of the most beloved video game franchises, Super Mario. I'm a die hard Mario fan, but this game? It's good and fun, but there are better Mario games out there. Like Super Mario World, Mario Maker, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario 64.

The only excuse people have for that game is "it saved the video game industry" or "it was innovative". Sure its fun to play but its not good as games we have today. Its like saying that the 1890 Ford Quadricycle is still a great car to use today because it was innovative and kinda kicked off the whole automobile craze. Sure it was but it would be ridiculous to use one on daily basis

There are many Mario games that are way better than this one. The main reason why this game overshadows most games of this franchise is because it's the first one. Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World are far superior.
