401 Call of Duty: Black Ops III
402 The Walking Dead

I admit its a good game however it seems to get way more attention then really deserves for starters half the time your not directly controlling your character and your always given hard choices that carry weight which means no matter what you choose something bad always ends up happening. - egnomac

A video game that gained momentum from a successful comic book and T.V. series. On the bright side it's a great storytelling game! (duh)

403 Pokemon SoulSilver
404 Portal 2

This is not an overrated game. I gets all the praise it deserves. The people who put this on here probably just saw a walkthrough on YouTube. Playing Portal 2 is a totally different experience than watching it. When you play the ending it will drive you to tears. Play this game then come back here say say to my face that this masterpiece is overrated.

I love how both Portal games are nowhere near the top of the list.

I don't understand why this is on here. - PinataonSugar

405 Bubsy 3D

It's not overrated because of people's reaction, people hate it. It's overrated because it exists.

ACTUALLY this is the most underrated game of all time. It stands out of the group with amazing game, amazing story, amazing music, amazing gameplay, and amazing gray platforms. Bubsy is very great! 11//10 best game

Gag. It's not overrated, it's everywhere because it's the worst game. Who thought it was a good idea to take a squirrel, give it a bunch of drugs, then let it go do whatever it wants?

406 Banjo-Kazooie

Let's be honest, there is no way this game would be popular if it wasn't for the nostalgia behind it.

407 FIFA 14

Did you know all FIFA game is the same?
Well if don't that a shame since you 100 quid on these crappy games

408 Super Paper Mario

So what if it's childish, so what if it's not the same as the other paper mario games? This game is very unique and very fun. If anyone disagrees they will be thrown into the chokey!

It's not overrated. I never ever saw it on a top 10 Mario games, despite it's a good game. Not overrated.

its OK. not the greatest tho, but super mario is still awesome - Marcopwnzatdrums

Wow I can't belive this is rated E it should be rated T or at least E10+ the game is so dark it even has hell(underwhere) and heaven(overthere) wow the darkest mario game

409 Batman: Arkham City

Is not a god amongst video game men. That honor would go to battlefront 2.

410 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Can someone remove this game from this list?

411 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

How is this not number 1. Each Zelda game that followed improved on everything this game has done but you guys still think it is better than eny other game on the planet. It is the worst 3D Zelda game. Critics should look past Nostalgia, Influence and Age, if they do they will see this game is weak compared to Skyward Sword, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask. The fishing isn't that fun either. The music isn't that good. The Dungeons are fun but they could of been more interesting. The Bosses are Overrated, Navi's Annoying, The Running Man is Unbeatable and the story isn't a masterpiece either. I think people should just move on. Ocarina was great for its time but now it is nothing. So many games have came out after this that are both better and more fun than this game. But you guys are closeminded and refuse to change your opinion but you want to. This should definitely be Number One. No game has ever gotten WAY TOO MUCH PRAISE than it deserves. It should be a sin to ...more

Overrated? It's far from overrated. It might not be the best game on the face of the planet, but to call it overrated is a sin. The worst part of the game was Navi the fairy. The graphics were great for it's time, the levels were progressively challenging, and the weapons and items were amazing, AND you could time travel! Do this website a favour and take this game off the list. This list however shows the credibility of this website. Two Halo games on the list and Ocarina of Time, pathetic. - patrickmoore

It is overrated. you say its not the best game, but have you checked the best video games of all time list?

Ocarina of Time is undoubtedly a fantastic game. But there are SO many fanboys/girls that attack anyone and everyone who says this isn't their favorite Legend of Zelda game. You grew up with this game and have nostalgia for it? FINE! It's your favorite game of all time? FINE! You attack anyone who disagrees with you just because you like this game? ACCEPT SOMEONE ELSE'S OPINION!

In all honesty the Zelda series is really overrated I swear this series has a bigger fan base than Mario even though Mario is arguably the better series I mean seriously calling this game the greatest game of all time is quite a stretch no it's not a bad game however there really is no greatest game of all time because that is just an opinion. And this game isn't perfect either it too has flaws like bosses that don't have many attacks. You are free to like and enjoy this game if you want but you shouldn't call it the greatest game of all time.

412 Counter-Strike: Source

I keep hearing that global offensive is the best shooter ever. It's not. I can think if hundreds of other shooters that are way better than this piece of garbage

413 Final Fantasy VI

It's a great game, like final fantasy 7, but it is also heading down the same doomed path as 7. As they say, tall trees catch much wind and Final fantasy 6's reputation is definitely growing quite high. As with 7, it is probably to get chopped down by rabid fans and considered a pile of overrated garbage.

Possibly the greatest game ever made. The fact that it's on this list is a travesty.

414 Bubsy 2
415 Chrono Trigger

Oh, come on. This is a major contender for MOST OVERRATED GAME EVER in terms of gameplay. The gameplay's goal was basically to be unique, fast-paced, challenging and fun. However, it actually feels (overall) more like the exact opposite. I found the battle strategy to be generic, slow-paced, pitifully easy and boring (except for a few major boss fights). Absurdly overrated, though maybe not as much as the Final Fantasy series.

Yeah the gameplay really sucked to be honest. However it still looks gorgeous and has a compelling story with an epic soundtrack

Why does this game get considered the best game ever made? It's so boring!
