Most Overrated Video Games

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty

Crud, at my school all I hear is call of duty is the best game ever, get it. So I first look at IGN reviews and it got a 9.4 out of 10 for bo2. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get the game so I borrowed it from my cousins. I beat up the campaign on veteran on the 1st try. I analyzed the game's multiplayer, zombies and campaign. Multiplayer gets a 3/10. Boring and repetitive. Campaign 1/10 Bad storyline and 6 hours is not worth a $60 game. Seriously! The guns seem all the same, like smgs, assault rifles, and light machine guns. There is no difference! Zombies 2/10, shoot, shoot shoot, reload. Gets old fast. But the worst part of it is the fanbase. Call of Duty fan:Ya Call of Duty IS TH best, GUNS AND****** DESTYRCTION MTLPYER IS the BRST AND POOKEMN IS***** FOR ****** DS BAYBYS.
Turns out 7 year olds play this game yelling cuss words through a mic.

Nothing interesting or classic about this game or franchise. Just the same crap EVERY year with updated graphics.

I used to be OK with Call of Duty, then it all happened. I found a rubbish channels named Codsvvag. By what I can tell, 7 year old are playing this darn game. Hell, even my dad plays it. Everyone that Call of Duty is horrible and it will always be since losers taken over the planet with Activison as a ally. It sold over 9000 copies in each game's first month. (no kidding)

People say that halo copies call of duty, it is the other way around. Here are the top five examples of that:

#1: they copied noble 5
#2: they stole halo reach art
#3: they stole pelicans...PELICANS!
#4: they stole map design
#5: stole the halo 5 rocket launcher

2 Minecraft

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 ...more

I don't understand why there is so much videos on YouTube about Minecraft.

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 see your point, but you begin with "I don't understand why anyone would like this game." It is simple, yes, but that's why people like it. Some people aren't looking for a huge story or complex game mechanics. Some people just like something simple to play with friends for a while.

Why is Call of Duty above this? At least Call of Duty is fun. This game is painful to attempt to play, and it is just plain boring. - rocketrider2065

3 Angry Birds

How did this game get so popular? Sure its good technically, however it is so unoriginal it's a surprise people think more of this game than any other indie game out there.

This is one of the most repetitive games I have ever played. There are tons of games similar to angry birds that deserve more popularity. The games are also released more than once but yet people still buy them why?! - Logan_Wolbert

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 was going to choose a Call of Duty game because of obvious reasons but when I saw this I knew immediately, mostly because of the MASSIVE boner people have literally rubbed numb on this stupid game. I've seen this form of game many times and many years before this particular version called angry birds came out. Its outdated and overrated. - TheCamoGhost

4 Fortnite

I really don't care how much dislikes this post gets, but this game looks horrible. Honestly, I like my shooter games where my kit is in front of me and I can use it, but in Fortnite you have to find those, which is basically a race to be the best and also the mechanics in this game are just mediocre...also this dumb game is taking over YT so you can't say that this is NOT overrated. - tacoperson

You know that it's a battle royale game, right? But yeah, it does a miserable job at being what its genre is; it looks more like a more luck-based survival third-person Team Fortress 2 with some Minecraft-like gimmick that kind of had a deadly effect on the video game industry.

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.

It's pretty good in my opinion. It's dying now though. But it's still kind of alive as many popular streamers still play it. This game is overrated and overhated at the same time.

Please get this piece of crap to number 1. It is extremely overrated.

5 Five Nights at Freddy's

Ugh. Five Nights at Freddy's is taking over the world, and I hate it. Everyone talks about it. When I want to go a simple website, people are talking about that stupid Five Nights at Freddy's. I once went onto the YouTube community on Miiverse to see what's going on, but guess what? You guessed it. Five Night's at Freddy's. I shouldn't have voted for Minecraft. I should've voted for this. How is Five Nights at Freddy's only 57? Pokemon is above this, and it's not nearly talked about as much at this.

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

Not a fan. But every single friend I have is just addicted to it. - hoppingicon

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.

6 Halo: Combat Evolved

Not a bad game, just ridiculously overrated. - moose4life19

I couldn't agree more and I happen to play it for nostalgia, nothing more. - Sephilin

I'm a Halo fanboy and yes this game is overrated. Yet, I feel it is overrated because it is so amazing. The original trilogy is the best. Let's hope for Halo Infinite to bring the series back! - MasterBeef

The game that changed the way we play games today. If there was no halo. There wouldn't be any first person shooters.

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

7 World of Warcraft

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! - Lizardbitch

Mario Kart 8 Is Childish And People Like It, And I Don't Even Like World Of Warcraft - VideoGamefan5

Takes way to much time to actually start being fun super overrated

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

yes overrated and boring game - livinglegend

8 Flappy Bird

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. - metaldude8

Everyone plays this stupid FREE game, they don't know what true gaming is.

This game is a boring slalom through Mario pipes, please add it.

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 Halo 3

First let me just say that this website and all its petty lists are completely arbitrary. Second I am only writing this to defend what I believe to be one of the greatest games of the 7th console generation. This is going to be BIASED but I will try to add as many facts as I can.

Halo 3 came out in 2007, a year of fairly good games such as Bioshock 1, Portal 1 and Call of Duty 4. This was a time when consoles ruled the gaming world and PC was still fairly far behind in terms of player count (at least in North America) so I am only going to compare Halo 3 mostly to other console games of the time.

The first thing we will take into account is gameplay. Gun play was solid with lots of little details to master, movement was very basic but did bring back some classic things like grenade jumping, vehicles were extremely refined for the time although basic and lastly the inclusion of power-ups and tons of grenades added another layer of gameplay to master. This game had a ...more

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

Bub, overrated does NOT mean the same thing as bad, dumb, stupid, horrific, etc. - Money1208

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. - PotBellyPup

Its all right, but way to overrated, I hate to see modern warfare, I mean half of the games on this list are not overrated, all right halo is halo 3 is, but that is it, everything else in the top 10 list are not overrated

10 Grand Theft Auto V

Does not deserve the title of most critically acclaimed game due to its insane level of violence and other content that is considered offensive. Even the Mario Galaxy series and Zelda Breath of the Wild are more worthy of that position.

The single player mode is somewhat decent but multiplayer is terrible because people hack to get money and kill you nonstop

I understand why the game is overrated, but I do personally enjoy this game. - SamHalls2015

The whole series is overrated, and Disney just had to dignify its existence and undeserved popularity in one of their recent movies.

The Newcomers

? Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
? Thief

The Contenders

11 Candy Crush Saga

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?

This game is terrible, I used to play this back in 2015 and stopped at around Dec 2015 or Jan 2016.

And Windows 10 has the audacity to come with it preinstalled... disappointing.

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?

The stupid ads keep trying to blow up my ipad - Harri666

12 Roblox

Not to be that guy, but this is technically, a video game engine or game platform, not an actual video game. - UL

Everyone here seems to hate this video game. How is this game even overrated? - UL

What are you fools talking about? Roblox is severely under rated and barely anyone knows it, and it's not just about the community (Which, to be honest, SUCKS! ) it's about the gameplay, and best of all the VERY easy to make game design. 10 year olds can make masterpieces on this game, if they know what they're doing.

There's lots and lots of players on this game. Including me. There's over 4 MILLION players there, if I remember. Which is a lot. - iiKyodaiKickz

Ok I play it but I feel like quitting because the staff are so stupid - Tyoshi

13 Grand Theft Auto IV

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

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 - Mrveteran

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.

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.

14 Final Fantasy VII

Why everyone runs head over heels over a this RPG with a rather plain story, all the while criticizing western RPGs for just that is beyond me. How can this mediocre game compare to Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, KOTOR, Mass Effect or Dragon Age? It's plain nonsense. - afpabon

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.

So horrible they needed to remake it from the ground up to fix all of the flaws in it

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.

15 Kingdom Hearts

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? KINGDOM HEARTS WAS A GREAT GAME. HAD A GREAT STORY AND I don't GET HOW PEOPLE CAN HATE THIS

The amount of people who can't wrap their head around this is ridiculous. OVERRATED DOES NOT BAD. Most games that are overrated are good. That's why their so popular in the first place. Also, opinions. People are allowed to have them.

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.

I played this on ps2 best game ever great storyline great graphics and epic characters

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. - Sephilin

16 Half-Life 2

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. -

Its good, very good, but it isn't jesus's own video game, hell, half life 1 was better. - dotexe

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

Unreal to see this in the "Overrated" list, seeing this in here is like putting the original Deus Ex in here... This game changed story driven fps's forward in style with the insanely beautiful Source engine in 2004! This engine was absolutely incredible in 2004 and to this day this engine is still the most moddable and friendly engine around, it's been upgraded countless times and it's still a great looking engine. Regardless this game built off the 90s classic Half-Life and improved everything about it from the gameplay, graphics and music. Half-Life 2 and Valve's Source Engine paved the way for hundreds of the most popular games today and people put it on the list of "overrated" games? Give me a break. Most of you wouldn't know a good game if it bit you in the ass. These modern games will never stack up to the classics that paved the way for most of these games today.

Classics that influenced future games:

Half-Life 2 and the Source Engine -> Counter Strike Global ...more

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.

17 Slender: The Eight Pages

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.

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.

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.

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.

18 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

What makes this game special is nothing but a grand illusion. Hundreds of repetitive quests where 90% of the time its 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 there 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

I appreciate you for extremely calmly stating your opinion towards the game. - Sprightly

Honestly one of my favorite games no idea how it's on this list. Took me a year to get truly bored with nothing to do

The characters are so bland the game gets boring. The only good thing is story, but a story Leeds interesting characters to work.

The game obviously isn't perfect but no game is. The fact that this game is even on here shows how bull this list is. I mean the author is pretty much trying to say that every popular game is overrated.

19 TNA Impact!

If it's so overrated, then how come I've never heard of it? - TheRobertsFamily3

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

Yeah, TNA is mostly trashy WWE rejects and ex-Superstars. WWE games are much better. - EliHbk

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

Never heard of it. Still too overrated.

20 Super Mario Galaxy

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. - Eclipsmon

How the heck is this overrated? It's one of the best games ever.

No, he knows what's it means. I don't think it's overrated either because it deserves the love it gets. - DCfnaf

Only a mario fanatic would say this game deserves much its praise. Of course, a mario fanatic would say that about any mario game.

Would you please explain what's wrong with the game instead of accusing everyone who likes it of being "Mario fanatics"? I love the game, and am not a Mario fanatic at all. In fact, I dislike him as a character. - Treacle

21 Pokemon Go

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 as hell, everyone is walking around playing it, getting themselves killed due to hackers, and people are dumb enough to go into employees only rooms just to get a pokemon. - DCfnaf

People have died because of their stupidity with this game and looking at their damn phone screens,

This game is brainwashing people to roam around outdoors and catch some virtual Pokemon.

But that's a good thing it encourages grown ups and kids get some fresh air and exercise rather than sitting on their ass all day playing Call of Duty. - JThrill

22 Tetris

Tetris is synedochal with videogames, the purest most abstract distillation of eye-darting, finger-twitching, button-mashing action and a game that could only ever have been realised in digital form. Its simplicity and its psychological basis probably make it the most timeless game in existence.

But it is not the "ultimate" or even the "perfect" game: it evokes no memories and pushes no boundaries.

Tetris is only "perfect" because its design is so unambitious that it is virtually impossible to screw up.

There are plenty of games out there with all the virtues of Tetris, that also bring something new to the table, and they deserve at least some of the attention that Tetris has hogged over the years.

And that's why Tetris is (one of) the most overrated game(s) of all time. -

This game is so overrated, it's crazy. What is there about this game that is even somewhat gratifying? It didn't revolutionize the gaming industry in any way, that's for sure. It's not addicting - in fact, I can barely play this game for 10 minutes before getting bored out of my skull.

It would be one thing if the Tetris "franchise" had actually evolved over the years, but that's not the case. I don't know if it can even be considered a video game anymore, with all its appearances on iPods, the Internet, and even cell phones.

And yet, reviewers give high praise to this abused game. It ranked in the top ten in G4's "Top 100 Video Games of All Time" list. Many gaming communities rank Tetris very high up on their lists as well. Why? What is so good about this game? It's not revolutionary. It's not addicting. I don't understand. There is absolutely no reason that the game is treated the way it is.

I can't see how this is the greatest game of all time and to those who do think that I would like you to sit in a room and you have a choice of three games ocarina of time, super Mario bros 3, the last of us, halo 3, Grand Theft Auto 5, or tetris I don't think any of those people would choose tetris and the last time you probably played it was in a line at a store

Extremely overrated and boring

23 Madden NFL 25

Both NFL 2K and NFL Blitz were better than anything Madden offered.

EA is the trashiest video game company and one of the trashiest companies in general.

ALL, and I mean ALL Madden games are the same, play football, nothing changes in these games as the years go on, just barely updated graphics.

I won't disagree, but Madden 13 was the first to run on the infinity engine, and going back you your point, no, nothing has really changed. - DH5435

If I could describe this "series" I will say things like copy n paste, unoriginal, cash grab. I mean seriously are we really stupid enough to drive to the nearest GameStop spend $60 for the same game play it and then find out that "aww you wanna play as this team. Well pay us $15 and you can download it" I mean come on you could just go outside and play football. Alas EA is the antichrist of the gaming industry

24 Five Nights at Freddy's 2

I hate any five nights at freddy's game

The worst game case picture I ever saw.

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 don't like this one

25 Undertale

This game is ridiculously overrated. I tried really hard to like it, but it was just impossible for me. I just couldn't get into the characters and I didn't like the game. Not to mention the cancerous fanbase that took over the internet and made me hate the game even more than I already did...

I think Undertale is a very special game, that people either get or don't get. That's why some people dislike this game (that and let's be honest, if this game wasn't popular, you wouldn't care about it). As for me Iove this game. And I will talk about it for a more special occasion. Don't hesitate to reply me if you get a true reason why undertale is overrated. - Eclipsmon

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! - TheDancingGhost

Why oh why did Sans have to appear as Smash Ultimate DLC (even if it was just a Mii costume)!

26 Call of Duty: Black Ops

This game is so overrated, it makes Mario look underrated

Everyone somehow loves this game but I can't get into it. Every time I go in my family room somebody is playing it. This game makes me want to break my PS3.

Okami, Star Fox 64, Sonic Generations, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze are better and are my 4 favorite games of all time

I'm usually a Call of Duty fan ( not the mean ones) but honestly I never seemed to enjoy bo1

27 Super Smash Bros Melee

I like playing this game once in a while, but I would argue that besides brawl with subspace Emissary, there are no games that has a considerable thing that makes it better than Ultimate. The only thing Melee has over ultimate are break the target, and Adventure mode, which are pretty small things, and not enough to beat ultimate. Sure Melee has wavedash but it's one of the reasons why competitive Melee is so hard to get into, and you are basically praising a game for a glitch that wasn't planned by developpers. - Eclipsmon

Honestly this game is nothing THAT special. Sure, it reinvented Smash and made it what it is today but it has cons. For example, this game introduced many clone fighters (ganondorf, Falco etc.) and some of the trophies are downright ugly (looking at you pit and Evee! ) so yeah most people only like it for its fast gameplay but once ultimate comes out, it will overcome Melee in nearly every single way possible. You're right. Ultimate is not Melee. It's better than Melee.

Really good game but a bad fanbase of nostalgiafreaks ruins it.

Cancerous competitive fanbase.

28 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. - Eclipsmon

I wouldn't exactly say Super Mario Bros. Is overrated, it's just one of the most popular game series, and it's really known well.

Why is this overrated? It gets some decent love, and decent love for a decent game. Mario Bros is something I can get onto, but Super? - Jawsome274

Who Saved the video gaming world... This game, I don't like it that much but come on! Cut it some slack

29 Overwatch

Incredibly boring game, one crappy teammate could ruin your whole game.

I remember this game when it was overrated. I think Fortnite killed it. - shadomatrix

Nah it was the awful balancing and overpowered and unfair new characters that did. - Dvafan2

Incredible game, deserved GOTY, one of the best games of all time, in my opinion.

The fact that I still consider it to be overrated is incredible. - Jawsome274

Most overrated game ever, a team fortress 2 rip off, the guns make you feel like your shooting a nerf in a video game and there are a bunch of games in 2016 that are way way wayy better and this crap still gets goty

30 The Sims

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 4...is 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!

Just because someone says something is overrated doesn't mean they think it's bad - BubblePops

It's a life simulator. It can't get better.

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. - PinataonSugar

How can you understand what they say

31 Candy Crush

So overrated it's on here twice

Isn't that a proof that it's actually not a game that is that popular? - Eclipsmon

It is overrated as hell and is on here twice. - TriggerTrashKid

JUST STOP REPEATING STUFF!

PEoPLe sTiLL tALk aBoUt ThiS siLLy LiTTLe gAmE? - xXbfdi_bhabieXx

32 Pokemon Red

These people need to learn to tell nostalgia from reality. Pokemon Red is not a good game. Physic types are so overpowered, the stats are terrible, the sprites look bad.

AND THIS GAME IS THE REASON WHY THERE ARE SO MANY CHARIZARD FANBOYS THAT NEVER SHUT UP!

Charizard is cool. Don't hate him, don't love him. Many people hate the treatment of him but what did you expect? He was a Gen 1 starter, was in every game, and is just designed really well. Gardevoir I would say is overrated. Don't google her. - MasterBeef

This game is proof that gamers today think that nostalgia and innovation are the only important things in a game. And for a game that is constantly referred to as the best Pokemon game ever made, it's Nithing special. However, this game isn't entirely bad. It kickstarted one of the most famous franchises in history (along with Pokemon Blue), its soundtrack is catchy and is still being remixed today, and it can be fun to find glitches like the level 100 mew glitch. But is it that good? Not really. It's about as fun as mashing the A button. THERE IS NO STRATEGY WHATSOEVER. Nothing to make your Pokemon unique, and no way to change its stats (other than the expensive vitamins). IT'S THE SAME THING EVERY TIME! I'd rather stick my head up a Garbodor's ass than hear one more word about Charizard or Mewtwo.

Unlike everyone else, I think gen 1 of pokemon's biggest flaw is the fact that your bag has a limited amount of space yet it can contains a bicycle and 99 times the same item, meaning that if you have 20 different items in your bag you have to either store them in the pc box or throw away that items. Gen 2 solve that problem by only limitting the items that are not important or are not TMs. There are also other really stupid flaws like having to switch pokemon boxes at the pokemon center to be able to transfer new pokemon in the pokemon center. - Eclipsmon

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.

33 Shovel Knight

Can someone tell me why it's overrated, because I don't see any comment about it. - Eclipsmon

Why is this on the list? It's one of the best new old-school platformers.

This is one of the best indie games on wii u how is it on here

Seriously, I love this game and all, but why does everyone always talk about it like it's the next Cave Story? - xandermartin98

34 Apex Legends

The original launch was great. Each season that has been introduced just makes the game worse and worse. I did like the zombie match though, even though it was short lived.

As long as it knocks Fortnite out of competition I’m fine with it

Another boring battle royale - Dvafan2

35 Final Fantasy X

I like the game, but The main character is SO annoying. Also the enemies do cheap moves getting everyone killed. Good game but flawed.

If I hear this is the best game ever, one more time, I'm screamin then stabbing the nearest person. - walker820

No way would say this game is that great. It's story is just as broken as the gameplay. - Sephilin

The only cool guy in the game dies rather early, I'm talking about Auron, and the character we watch has nothing to do with the story

Bad game its so overrated only good thing abotu it is auron and jecht - rockisgood132

36 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Waay overrated. God, in my fave games ever list, this wouldn't be in the top 100. There are just way more better games that haven't been given enough credit. Jak and daxter, Modnation racers, infamous... Things like this are LOADS better than Call of Duty because they're different. Oh, the new Call of Duty! Oh. Online, same crud. Campaign, same crud. Ideas, old, same crud. Yawn. Will it ever die?

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's awful, because I still find it a lot of fun and I like all the added features, particularly the Spec Ops mode. However, it isn't as good as its predecessor, mainly because it doesn't feel as fresh gameplay wise. Meanwhile, it is a little cheaper in its difficulty and the online play is not as fun as the original, but still good. Great game, but maybe a little overrated. - Mrveteran

if it werent for everyone else playing and unlockables, no one would play it. And people say halo hasnt changed? look at the transition between cod4 to black ops. Same game with different guns

2nd best game ever! The person who put it on this list either has never played it before or has no clue about awesome games. COD4 isn't that bad either! - Alpha101

37 Clash of Clans

I'm so mad at my friends, they just sit on their tablets and play this all day - Harri666

I'm glad this was on the list. All my friends at one point all played this, even one that didn't even like video games. I played it for about 10 minutes and nearly died of boredom

Every kid I know who own tablets or android phones plays or played this game. I've tried it once and got bored real quickly. Android games are just boring in general, just like Angry Birds.

I Agree, This Is Possibly The Most Overrated iPad Game To Ever Hit The Face Of The Earth! I Mean, Seriously There Is Nothing To Be Obsessed About This! NOTHING!

38 Devil May Cry

I know that this THE game that influenced most hack and slashes of today... But that does not mean that it the most "perfect" hack n slash to ever exist... I think I would understand if the people like this franchise because the people like the gameplay and the coolness and style that the characters provide... But I don't understand why there are people who are emotionally attached to the game's story. I am sorry to say, but this is one of the laziest writing I have ever seen in my entire life! They did put effort on the gameplay but not the story! Not the characters! I don't care, if the game is supposed to be "cool" and "stylish" at least make the effort to write a good story and create well written characters! My first and most important complaint are the characters! Dante for an example! Why are there people emotionally attached to this guy? He isn't well written! Yes he is indeed a badass and cool but coolness does not even define a well written ...more

The way you can save anytime but still have have to start from the mission's beginning is counter-productive and a total waste of time. Also it spontaneously becomes hard out of nowhere. You must run around randomly to re-collect thing(such as the lion-stone thing) every time you die. Also how sometimes there is enemies to fight that sometimes respawn when you come back and sometimes they don't. The camera controls are horrible because there are NONE! Therefore when you try to come up behind an enemy all of a sudden the camera rotates and all you see is a wall and you get hit. I am happy I only paid $3.00 for the game so when I snapp it in half out of frustration I won't feel bad for throwing away money. PS to the smarty pants out there that think whenever someone has trouble with a game they're stupid-not the case! Games should be challenging and fun not repetitive and lame.

It's a pretty cool game, I never seen anyone call it the best hack and slash ever, DMC 3 is superior in my opinion

It's a pretty cool game, I never seen anyone call it the best hack and slash ever, but DMC 3 is superior in my opinion

39 Bendy and the Ink Machine

Stupid fanbase

The song I am Alive is horrible, boring, shoved down your throat, overrated, trashy, edgy, itchy, painful, Justin Bieber wannabe, to me. - TeamRocket747

This game is not scary, it's garbage, enough said.

Stay away of them they are rude fanbase. - Shadoww

40 Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic 1 is overrated, because yes it did revolutionnize gaming, but today it didn't aged well. I would go as far as saying that even for the time it wasn't that good since it was a game with limited continue created in 1991! A year where games like Megaman and Super Mario Bros 3 had unlimited continues. Not only that but some zones are not good for Sonic in this game. Especially Marble Zone, which is extremely slow paced, and ask you to make precise plateforming on small platforms with controls that are not adapted to controls like these (at least the IOS remake resolve the limited continues issues. At the end of the day Sonic 1 is still a good game, but far from flawless. - Eclipsmon

Sonic 1 is trash.

There, I said it. Happy? This game has no sense of speed. The developers must've thought that it was impossible to make a difficult level without being slow. Sonic 2-3 and even Crash Bandicoot proved them wrong. - Jawsome274

Sonic 2 and 3 were definitely better. It improved every flaw that Sonic 1 had and gave much more sense of speed. I still don't understand why people say the first Sonic is the best one. Sure it debuted one of the most iconic images on video game industry, but it doesn't mean it's the best one of the franchise.

Whoever said they hate Sonic and it should be no. 1, this is for overrated games, not horrible games. And I'm willing to bet money your just another Mario lover and Sonic hater or a Call of Duty/ Grand Theft Auto fanboy. So shut up :l

Pointless insult, pulling the 'if you dislike this then you are that' card, providing no insight, copying something at least 100 people have said. This shouldn't have any likes because it is not only a bad post but it doesn't even add anything. - HiBye

41 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Graphics blows...that was not my current impression. That was my first impression in 2009

I disagree with the comments. It's a very good game but I do agree it's way too overrated, though Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V are far more overrated than Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

What? How is this overrated? This deserves all the praise it gets!

There's a serious amount of people backlashing other Grand Theft Auto games because of san andreas, especially Grand Theft Auto 5, I love san andreas but you simply cannot like any other Grand Theft Auto game more than san andreas, even your sucessors improved san andreas flaws don't matter how other Grand Theft Auto's improved due the technology, people always say how san andreas is perfect despite outdated features, no game is perfect. - IgorCarbex

42 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Nobody plays this anymore maybe because they never completed the game - Dvafan2

Yes its trash bad servers and bad everything - Dvafan2

More overrated than fortnite on this site, I don't know one person who hates this - B1ueNew

I'm tired of these "edgy" PUBG fans disrespecting the opinions on Fortnite fans. - B1ueNew

43 League of Legends

You hit 4 keys and do summoners rift over and over. Absolutely blows my mind how popular it is. Only because it's free.

I would like to say this game is not overrated. It is 302 on top tens list. It is also really fun, and saying the community is toxic is like criticizing around 75 million players, who may be nice. If you tried this game out, you would see how it is actually not overrated, but deserves the attention it gets - wren6

Well, it IS overrated.

This game has the most toxic community in the history of video games - YourWaifuSucks

44 Street Fighter II

Mortal Kombat 1 should be in the top 5, not Street Fighter II, a perfect balanced, and a still fun with good graphics game

To me, the Street Fighter series is just generic, and Capcom has been milking the series to death. It makes almost everyone of the games seem like the same. - PinataonSugar

Seriously, People think this is overrated? Sorry that title belongs to Alpha 3.

A good fighter, but for me not as intuitive or easy to pick up and play as others like Mortal Kombat, Tekken or Marvel Vs. Capcom. Not bad, but the way people can overhype this thing is a little extreme. - Mrveteran

45 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
46 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

It is not that good

Not a terrible game but lots of dumb kids think this is the greatest thing ever made

Isn't it in the list already? - POWERStarz2004

This is my favoritie Call of Duty game

47 Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Why is this only at #51? It is the most overrated game of the franchise, and the worst one too. - SamHalls2015

48 The Last of Us

I swear everyone who calls this a zombie game and compares it to Dying Light or Dead Island should be popped upside the head, because this game doesn't focus on zombies. (They aren't zombies in the first place) No, this game focuses on how people react to this outbreak, and how one spark of hope for humanity is lost just because of human greed and emotion. This game is about the the relationship between two people. This game is about how brutal and sick people can get just for survival, and soon you realize that the enemies in this game are not the Infected... The enemies in this game is the greed and stupidity of man, and yourself. So anyone who calls this a generic zombie game has either not played the game at all, or is too stupid to even realize what this game is about.

The Last of Us is a good game, but it isn't the BEST GAME OF ALL TIMES. I'm sorry to say that, but The Last Of Us is not a game, is an interactive movie. The gameplay is just boring and sometimes even annoying. The graphics are good and the soundtrack is okay. The Story is the only really good thing about this game, but stills a cliche zombie story. This game is overrated, you can't deny it, but it isn't a bad game either. I've seen some people saying that the real focus of the game isn't the infected, but how the humans react to an outbreak, saying that this makes this game special, but that's basically what almost all the zombie movies, books and games says, so there is nothing special about this message.

Was supposed to be one of the most "realistic" games ever but forgot to include friendly fire, causing me to actually DIE at one point late in the game when I decided to make an attempt to actually play fair and not blatantly exploit the game's UN-realism by shooting my flipping FLAMETHROWER right through Ellie in order to dislodge a Clicker from her, enough said - xandermartin98

Is it a good games, yes, pretty good, but TLOU was the not the best thing since sliced bread, it was the same old post-apocalypse plot, predictable as hell, it wasn't "sad" or "emotional", as well as some of the game mechanics like ladders and platforms were just stupid and annoying, nothing revolutionary and new at all. Game of the year-hell no, most overrated game of the year- yes.

49 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Heck, I can make a game in MUGEN (a free fighting game engine) just downloading random characters and stages that I find on the internet and it still would be a better game than this $60 garbage. - PerfectImpulseX

Unpopular opinion: This game was a disappointment and a huge step down compared to SSB4. - PerfectImpulseX

So overrated! It's basically the same old crap that Nintendo puts out there every time. And I am so tired of the Nintendo fanboys saying stuff like: "SSBU honors the history of video games! " This game doesn't represent anything but the masturbation fest that is Nintendo. - RogerMcBaloney

Incredibly overhyped. There was barely any newcomers, and that ones they were added were not wanted by the fans. The only thing exciting so far isJoker from Persona 5, who won't be in the game for like a year because it takes too long to make one character. - Smash64

50 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Well. I don't know if this game is overrated or not, since the reputation of this game is extremely mixed. - Eclipsmon

I think this game is VERY overrated because people think it's the darkest video game to be created.

Dark ≠ good. Least favorite 3D Zelda. Still great though, but not the best like everyone says.

There's a possessed copy of this, it is even overrated among spirits.
No offense to people resting in peace. - TriggerTrashKid
