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)

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

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.

This and fornite are so boring and people actual want steve in smash weird right

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

This game wasn't even good in the first place! - Peppapigsucks

4 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

Eh, I don't find this game overrated. Even by today's standards, this game is more fun than most of the fps games out today. It makes it hard to believe this came out in 2001. That's just what I think, though. - Mcgillacuddy

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

This should be halo 3

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

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.

FNAF is now underrated its sad at this point

6 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

Merely a groupie session for virgins who never see sunlight or the workplace.

The Fortnite of the 2000s.

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

7 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. - TheYoshiPyro64

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.

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

Okay, I just want to get this off my chest. Now, do I really think Fortnite is the worst game ever? No, I do not think so. Now, do I think Fortnite is really all that GREAT? I'm just going to say: HELL TO THE NO! Look, I may not have played Fortnite myself, and while it isn't really a bad game, I really don't get why everyone is all hyped up about it. It's bad enough some of my interns are obsessed with this and PUBG, but ugh, it shows up everywhere on YouTube! Do you realize how hard it is for me to keep clicking and saying that I'm not interested in some bland dank meme version of Gun Gale Online that only exists just to use clickbait for gullible pre-teens to click on for views?! That said, the game itself doesn't even look that appealing to me. I mean, the graphics are mediocre, the gameplay looks mediocre, and the premise looks mediocre too. In other words, it just looks like a typical FPS shooter in the form of a battle royale. I'm pretty sure this whole battle royale premise ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

9 Halo 3

Best Halo - TriggerTrashKid

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

10 Grand Theft Auto V

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

Actually it's the whole franchise, not just this one.

ALL Grand Theft Autos, really

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

The Contenders

11 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. -

Yes, it is overrated, but it is one of the best games released ever. - TriggerTrashKid

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

12 Final Fantasy VII

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.

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

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 is one of my favorite games ever! What's it doing on this list?

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?

15 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 loved this one, it is better than the overrated Grand Theft Auto V. - TriggerTrashKid

16 Slender: The Eight Pages

One word, PewDiePie.



Are they three? - TriggerTrashKid

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.

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

19 Super Mario Galaxy

This game is actually terrible, Super Mario 64, Sunshine and Odyssey are way better.

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.

This game sounds like it's underrated to me, because I don't hear about it that much. I have that game, but I don't play it much. - PhilTheCorgi

If I could describe this "series" I will say things like copy n paste, unoriginal, cash grab.

28 Pokemon Red

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.

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!

Outdated visuals, mechanics, character archetypes, and strategies. It's not that Red/Blue were bad games back in their prime, far from it, it's just that the franchise has evolved so far from this, that once you've experienced Gen 4 and beyond you will never want to play through Red/Blue again. - Lucabratz

It's a great game - neehawgamer

I think just by knowing the amount of positive comments on this candidate, you can definitely tell

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

30 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 feel like this is either overrated or underrated. You got those who love it to death, and say it's the best game ever, and then there's the people who act like Sonic 06 and Superman 64 had a baby.

I think it's a decent game for the money you pay. - Jawsome274

Extremely cliche characters and linear plot with an eye-rolling "fRiEnDsHiP Is maGiC" morale.

Very overrated - ElSherlock

31 Super Smash Bros Melee

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.

Sonic 06: loads of glitches and gets universally hated
Super Smash Bros Melee: loads of glitches and gets universally praised

Yup. Ultimate is so much better. - neehawgamer

Smash ultimate is better than Melee. The only people who would say otherwise are the Melee eliteists who always do no items fox only final destination

32 Final Fantasy X

Garbage,... - TriggerTrashKid

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

33 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

34 Sonic the Hedgehog

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

True

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

35 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

36 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

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

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

The only reason why this game is overrated is because of Ben Drowned - BubblePops

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

37 Skylanders

Not a great game.

See those little plastic creatures that they sell at the video game stores? Yeah, those are the "characters" you have to buy to play them in this game. Jesus Christ they're everywhere! Also, Skylanders destroyed Spyro.

Spyro is dead, and from what I can gather from this advert I watched, Crash is dead too. Rest in peace, childhood.

Haters. Haters everywhere.

38 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Never understood the hype

The ultimate masturbation fest for Nintendo fanboys.

Meh, just another Mario game

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

39 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The number one spot pretty much covers the whole franchise. Also this was good. - codgtamk34

It. Is. Good. - TriggerTrashKid

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

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?

40 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

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

What has happened to you all? - TriggerTrashKid

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

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.

42 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.

Come on, I actually love this game. Excited for the sequel as well - codgtamk34

Xbox fanboy ignores all the issues Xbox has that shouldn't be big deals. - codgtamk34

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.

Overrated pile of...a great adventure! - TriggerTrashKid

The first 6 or 7 were great, but after that the series started to suck. I wish Nintendo could just give us remasters of the first few games instead of making new trashy ones. - MasterCreepy

44 Assassin's Creed

Shouldn't be even in the top 100. If anything, it's underrated

Only played 2 but the game itself isn't bad but I don't think its a stealth based game now comparing this to deus ex if you play the stealth version of deus ex (human revolution ) if you don't use stealth you will die A LOT. But assassins creed is also kinda repetitive every game pretty much looks the same but ooh boats I don't hate this game but people adore this game like a child come on my friends says this is the BEVT GAVE EZAR ;3

Yeah sure it was fun, and there's nothing else like it, but it got boring and repetitive after awhile. - walker820

It has had some good installments, yes, but overall an average franchise.

45 Super Mario Galaxy 2

One of my favorite game of all time as it has great level design, controls are amazing, Yoshi is a great new feature 240 stars instead of 120 it's just an amazing experience all around and is definitely not overrated. - Tyoshi

Why does everyone think this is the best Mario game? Its just Galaxy 1, just with Yoshi, that's the only change. No exaggeration. People who praise this game are probably the same people complaining about Call of Duty's Copy-Paste sequels. Newsflash, Mario did it too, in this game. Also, the final boss sucks

This should be top 1!

Seriously, people are fussy about rescuing Princess Peach & listening to her aggressive, overrated voice. And guess what? This game is the highest-rated video game ever!

Dude, he didn't even mention Call Of Duty. You are yet another example of how toxic Nintendo's fanbase can be. As soon as another gamer criticizes one of your beloved games, you start wining like a baby and try to look / sound superior. Pathetic. - RogerMcBaloney

Game isn't overrated, it's easily an instant classic, it took everything from the first entry, and made it ten times better, and much longer.

46 Conker's Bad Fur Day

Is it a Crash Bandicoot ripoff? - TriggerTrashKid

I will admit that Conkers Bad Fur Day isn't as fun to play as Banjo Kazooie but I still enjoyed playing it. The gameplay itself was only challenging at some stages of the game but it is a funny game. - TheGrammarPolice

A game needs more than humor to be good. Fun is the most important thing to me.

Not nearly as good as Banjo-Kazooie yet IGN gave it 9.9, this game focused to much on being funny.

47 Guitar Hero

I'm a 14 year old, and I have to say, I'm better with an electric guitar than something like. This only has 5 buttons and it makes the easy songs SO HARD (I've played thunderstruck and it murdered me) while a REAL electric guitar has 6 strings and 22 frets (I played thunderstruck on my electric guitar and I perfected it), I only play this game when I'm bored and being good at Guitar Hero doesn't make you a REAL GUITARIST, I'm good with an electric guitar (I'm serious, my guitar is an Vintage Sunburst Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro)

Come on now this game is awesome one of my all time favorite games

I'm tired of kids who act like being badass at guitar hero makes them a good guitarist.

In third grade I had to always be asked, "What level are you on in guitar hero? " "I don't play that game." "Oh." It's much more fun and beneficial to get a real guitar and actually learn to play a real instrument. - therootbeer

I have to agree with you on that, whats the point of showing of in guitar hero if you can't play a real guitar

I'm tired of these guitar elitists that are always like "Play a real guitar hurr durr." So because someone is good at A VIDEO GAME, it is null and void because they don't play a real instrument. If someone wants to play a game because it is fun, then let them. Stop being that guy who just hates on these things for no reason other than the fact that it isn't a real instrument. Same thing for the other instruments like drums. - HiBye

48 Destiny

It ruined my "Destiny". - TriggerTrashKid

This game is just boring, watered down Halo. What's so great about it?

The game got so much hype before its release with its commercials, merchandise, in-game cinematics and pre-order bonuses. Also, the Taken King should've been the real Destiny game to be released in the beginning. Only then the hype would've been worth it.

I don't think enough people like Destiny for it to be overrated

49 God of War

If we talk about God of War 2018, it's great. - TriggerTrashKid

People saying that you have to walk forward and press a button are just broadly explaining almost all games, if you want a challenge, play it on hard mode. - kempokid

After playing the game and its sequels and comparing it to all other games, I can safely say that this game has the most overblown fan base for such a bad game. I can tell you this about the campaign, I never died, and people whine about Halo games being easy, the puzzle part is mind numbingly easy, and I never could like Kratos, He is the biggest Asshole I have ever seen, watch the game and you'll see there is a reason why I felt sorry for Zeus and the Gods. Unlike most Video game characters which are noble, Kratos is the poorest excuse for a good character and constantly reminds me of Hope from Final Fantasy 13.

It's a bit boring. For what I know, you've gotta walk straight and press the attack button. Bam, game finished.

50 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Don't listen to this, the Uncharted series is one of the best series of all time. Anyone who voted for this is just jealous that this fabulous game series could not come to their console of choice, because this is PlayStation exclusive.

It's not that people were jealous of this not coming to their console of choice. This game was absolutely incredible, I'll admit, but there are MANY exclusives for other platforms that are way better than this game. Uncharted 2 was absolutely incredible, but it is a tad overrated. - TheMusicNerd

For 2009 this game was revolutionary so to the idiot XBOX people who vote for this play the game. It's graphics and gameplay are amazing even for the year I'm posting this 2016 so you are an idiot if you say it is overrated.

I prefer Uncharted 3 for multiplayer. But Uncharted 2 had the best story in my opinion.

Who cares about multiplayer? It shouldn't of been in these games in the first place. - RogerMcBaloney

Is it a good game yes however I personally liked uncharted 3 more - Gamer4life
