421 Final Fantasy

This game in just plain rubbish garbage.

Uhh, which one are we talking about here?

422 The Simpsons Game

Funny Game with great comedy but the gameplay is crap with stiff controls horrible visuals and boring gameplay.

Based off a terrible AND OVERRATED cartoon (my opinion), I'm not surprised that this is so low. - KennyRulz244444

How is this overrated? iv'e only seen one person that plays this too. my brother, - lolingdog9000

423 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Why put the brawl

What? Brawl is a great game!

Remove this from this list, I'd call brawl underrated compared to melee.

I'm Glad This Is at The Bottom Of This List, And Melee And Wii U Are Higher Up, You Mad Wii U And Melee Fanboys? , Well That's Your Fault For Being Competitive And Rude - VideoGamefan5

424 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

I like this game but it is my least favorite Metal Gear game. I am a huge fan of the Metal Gear series and I don't know why people call this the best metal gear game. The enemies are cool and the boss fights are awesome, but some characters are annoying. Ever is really annoying constantly trying to seduce snake. The gameplay is good and it is fun sneaking around enemies, but Naked Snake is so overpowered and it is easier to go gun blazing! This is Metal Gear Solid, the game series that encourages you to crawl on the ground and hide in a cardboard box to avoid enemies. The story is good and what you'd expect from Metal Gear Solid. I am sick of people saying MGS3 is the best and MGS2 is overrated. I love MGS2 and it is my favorite Metal Gear. I like MGS3, but it does not live up to MGS2.

I love its design and story but not the gameplay. This game is fun actually but it's very annoying when you have to aim. It would be the best game of the year if its aiming system was not such bad. Most of its fans try to protect this game by saying "It's a stealth game, that's why. " I think that's a very bad excuse. Why a good stealth game can't have a good aiming system? What about the boss fight? Still stealth? No. What you can do in a boss fight is running and shooting repeatedly. That's quite annoying.

Snake doesn't even eat snakes in this game - JeremyIsSuperCool

425 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.

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.

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

It is the most overrated game of all time.

426 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.

427 ARK: Survival Evolved

Why isn't this here its very overrated - ikerevievs

428 Bubsy 2
429 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!

430 Star Fox Assault

That's not how you spell Star Fox 64!

431 Yoshi's Story
432 Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
433 NBA 2K14

Swag kids overrate it so much. NBA Live is better.

434 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I like this game more than Skyrim.

I've never heard of Oblivion. However, Skyrim is more than overrated. - TheRobertsFamily3

Any elder scrolls game is overrated

Objection! What about Arena? Nobody even talks about that anymore!

Great graphics, not enough voice actors, and gameplay was "dumbed"
Down from Morrowmind. Although Oblivion is not a bad game, it suffers from some very serious flaws. It's not that great as an RPG, nor as an action game. - Jake_Kane22

435 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

436 Sonic Lost World

Wrong. Its UNDERRATED. It IS better than Boom through, this is not a broken mess.

I can't believe people LEGITIMATELY say that Boom is better than this. This game was amazing! - DCfnaf

First Sonic game, and this is also way underrated. Sonic: people think this game's overrated?! Tails: um no it's not.

Good game, not better than super Mario galaxy. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Who the hell put this on the list? UNDERRATED! (As are most sonic games) - DCfnaf

437 Gears of War

The post-apocalyptic third person shooter ended up winning game of the year, but ultimately came off to me as feeling a bit lack luster and under done.Terrible multi- player, no Re-playability, and lacking in good plot and motivating bad guys. This game could have been the PS3 killer it was hyped to be with just a few adjustments, but sadly fell rather short of expectations. - Jake_Kane22

You won't realize it if you play G.O.W. But it is just another unnecessary and overrated game that is a clone of the Ghost Recon series. Sorry, but you gotta believe me.

No story, over exagerated buff guys, no replay value and boring multiplayer and it won a lot of game of the year awards. If that's not overrated then I don't know what is. Oh, and Ocarina of Time IS the best game of all time - metalmaiden

438 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

It's my favorite video game! I think it actually deserves its love. - DCfnaf

439 Super Mario 64

I'm surprised that this game is the low end of this list. I guess some fans that can't take criticism rigged the list so this game would not be in the top ten part of this list.

Well, I have to admit that in retrospect this game DOES control like a tank, especially by Mario standards... - xandermartin98

The only reason I hate this game is due to the fact that you save Peach... nobody wants to save that stupid princess anymore. - KennyRulz244444

I isn't the most overrated game, as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is considered BETTER than this game. - KennyRulz244444
