Most Overrated Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Call of Duty

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

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

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

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

2 Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

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

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

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

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

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

3 Fortnite Fortnite Product Image

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

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

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

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

4 Angry Birds Angry Birds Product Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6 Halo: Combat Evolved Halo: Combat Evolved Product Image

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

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

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

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

7 World of Warcraft World of Warcraft Product Image

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

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

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

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

8 Flappy Bird

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

Floppy Bird Forgotten Description

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

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

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

9 Halo 3 Halo 3 Product Image

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

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

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

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

10 Grand Theft Auto V Grand Theft Auto V Product Image

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

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

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

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

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

The Contenders
11 Among Us

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

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

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

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

12 Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy VII Product Image

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

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

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

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

13 Undertale Undertale Product Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

14 Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV Product Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

15 Candy Crush Saga

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

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

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

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

16 Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2 Product Image

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

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

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

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

17 Kingdom Hearts Kingdom Hearts Product Image

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

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

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

This game was my first ps2 game and I loved it and I still love it becaues it has great graphic, unforgettable character, one of the best storyline ever, great combat gameplay and most of all what make this game one of the best game ever is that it has one of the best video game music ever

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

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

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

The worst game case picture I ever saw.

I hate any five nights at freddy's game

19 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

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

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

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

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

20 TNA Impact! TNA Impact! Product Image

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

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

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

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

21 Friday Night Funkin'

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

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

Stupid little children think that Madness Combat characters like Tricky and Hank, Pico from Pico's School, Tankmen, etc are from this trash game with crappy mods

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

22 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

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

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

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

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.

23 Candy Crush

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

24 Pokemon Go

I do know that Pokemon Go is a good game, I believe the next mobile Pokemon game hype would probably go to Pokemon Unite, an upcoming Pokemon MOBA made by Tencent of all people. Yikes.

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

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

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

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

Otherwise Pokemon Go, GREAT GAME.

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

25 Call of Duty: Black Ops Call of Duty: Black Ops Product Image

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
