21 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!

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

As much I love The Sims. The sims 4 was a HUGE step down from the other games.

Sims 1: Okay
Sims 2: Best one
Sims 3: Love it
Sims 4: You have the same abilities that you have in sims 1

As a 'simmer' (If that's what you call it) Since 2011, the series is a little bit overrated. And of course Sims 4. Through, I do enjoy playing Sims...

22 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...

An "8 bit" game made in the same year as games like Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5. So you're probably thinking "So what? ". Well, people actually believed that this should have been game of the year! People actually believe that this forced humor 2deep4me tumblr game should have beaten out actual video games. - Mai_sentry

It is not better than:
Super Mario 64
Fallout 3
Super Mario World

Ocarina of Time
Yet it beat them in a poll. Sure it was one poll. Sure, Ocarina of Time wins every damn poll so I guess whatever, but still... Undertale wasn't revolutionary like the other games I mentioned. It may be great, but putting it above games that changed the industry can only mean that it is at least slightly overrated.

Just google toriel. I dare you

23 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

Great main story. Great characters. Phenomenal soundtrack. But very, very boring if you're a completionist. Dodging lightning 200x to get a prize is something more fitting for Atari games.

24 Pokemon Go

15% of Pokemon Go players are actual fans, while the other 85% are just following the trend. - yungstirjoey666

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

Put this higher, it's super overrated... - BlueSheepYT

25 Five Nights at Freddy's 2

The worst game case picture I ever saw.

I hate any five nights at freddy's game

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

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

26 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

WHO PUT THIS HERE?! - bigredcat

27 Roblox

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

It IS targeted for children, yes, but, for example, Kirby is (mostly) targeted for children too, and it's great.

This game is just horrible. The community is basically a bunch of five year old retards. The admins and moderators don't care about there users. Also, you are forced to buy premium membership, in which lifetime membership costs over 300 USD.

The sad thing is that my two younger sisters are addicted to this glitchy mess... -_- - PerfectImpulseX

28 God of War

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.

Run forward, mash buttons, beat some guys up, watch blood fall all over the place. Repeat the process and you'll get God of War.

1&2 are the only good ones

29 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

30 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

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?

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

In terms of Call of Duty games, MW2 was one of the greatest. While it may not have the most balanced multiplayer, it still holds up today. Great campaign as well.

31 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

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!

Grand Theft Auto IV showed up one overrated list and now everyone parrots it as an overrated game, but the mindless love for San Andreas always baffled me. Everyone loves the big map but forgets how empty and pointless the environment was. Once you breathlessly explored the forest or the desert the first time you depressingly realize you're never going to come back again because there is nothing there. And that applies to all those little towns. Nothing to see. Nothing to do. About 75% of the map was simply dead space. Those same fans crap on IV, but IV has a denser and larger total city area. Also, SA has more than it's share of notoriously bad missions, and the gang war feature was so bad it required you to leave Los Santos just to avoid another repetitive and ridiculously easy to win battle. Vice City felt leaner and didn't need the silly mini-games or Hot Coffee mods. San Andreas feels bloated and overblown.

It is the most overrated game of all time.

32 Assassin's Creed

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.

Number 1 worst game in my list.

33 Plants vs Zombies

People need to stop putting underrated games in this list

No! This Game Is Awesome! Why Is It Here Again?

It is a time waster for a zen garden.

Best game ever. So much better than that overrated piece of garbage Clash of Cloons.

34 Shovel Knight

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

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

You people are all wrong, this game is such a terrible game

35 Overwatch

It's having way too much attention as if it was something new to the gaming industry. TF2's gameplay is similar and it's FREE. I only like the attitude of some characters of the game, like the gorilla and the girl with the british accent. But the gameplay is nothing new to people who have already played this type of game. However, it's on consoles so people who can't play or own a PC will just take advantage and buy it.

Nothing really new here. Inspires heavily from a F2P game, but it costs $40. This isn't a game you can sit down and play non stop, this is more like a game that you can go "I have a few hours to kill, I'll play Overwatch" This game shouldn't even be on console as it's a team based game, and no one wants to talk on console, compared to PC where you have game chat and mic built into computers.

Some of the characters are downright better than others, whereas other characters don't feel like they belong in the game.

This game only shines on PC, where the controls are great and the accessibility to team conversation is open.

Should be first am I right no it should not be here it should be banned

I think that this game is lacking in both maps and game modes. I also thinks that some heroes are far more exciting like others. There are some really fun heroes like: Tracer or Genji. But then there are heroes like D.va or Mercy... Boooring! I think this game is Very overrated.

36 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

37 Conker's Bad Fur Day

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.

Conker games are amazing!
Don't hate on it!

38 Final Fantasy VIII

Boring game, the characters are dull and the summons are boring to look at. The battle system also sucks. - Sephilin

39 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)

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

If you play a game that consist of a plastic guitar with 5 buttons, fine. Good for you. But if you think that playing a plastic guitar with 5 buttons makes you as talented as a guy who can play on a full, 22 fret 6 string guitar, then get the hell out of my sight.

40 Sonic the Hedgehog

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.

Someone said sonic revolutionize video games, no he didn't he was just made to rival nintendo's mario, and what happened, they lost, they always rush their games, so they make it look like nintendo stole there ideas

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

The most overrated platformer of all time
