41 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.

42 Super Mario Galaxy 2

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.

Why is this game lower than the first one? It's just its 1.5 version and it got more praise especially by critics. - DaisyandRosalina

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!

This is my lest favourite game. It absolutely sucks compared to the first one.

43 Final Fantasy VIII

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

Way too much popularity

More like underrated.

44 Tomb Raider

cool game? yes. best game ever? no. - AymanKabir

The 1996 game? It was pretty good, it marked a new style of gameplay, though the sequels were better. The 2013 reboot? It's like a mixture of Uncharted and Far Cry but with Lara Croft, doesn't deserve the amount of credit it has.

This should be first! Worst game.. - paasadani

Man I hate it

45 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

46 Clash of Clans

I'm so mad at my friends, they just sit on their tablets and play this all day - Harri666

I'm glad this was on the list. All my friends at one point all played this, even one that didn't even like video games. I played it for about 10 minutes and nearly died of boredom

Every kid I know who own tablets or android phones plays or played this game. I've tried it once and got bored real quickly. Android games are just boring in general, just like Angry Birds.

What was the deal with this game, I remember when I was in middle school my friends played this nonstop, as well as most of the school. I remember trying it and I thought it was boring. It wasn't very special - Phillip873

47 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.

This game is a system seller because of it's story alone. you have seen most of the gameplay before, and if you only play games SOLELY for gameplay, then you might think it is overrated. If not, play it and be prepared for an immersive story.

49 Skylanders

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.

Giants has the best minigame in 7 gen, skystones

50 Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

If Sonic can run insanely fast, why is he in a car? I'm not a high sonic fan, but doesn't he run at fast speeds?

How is this on here, for a game to be overrated, a lot of people have to like it...

I'm pretty sure everyone knows this is a Mario kart ripoff.

Know what I hate about you people...there is plenty of racing games that came before mario kart and since its popular everything that came out of it, it must be a mario kart ripoff? - spodermanfan1000

Just not that fun...

51 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

Its basically the same as every other third person shooter. Run around, take cover, pop off a few shots and duck back into cover when the AI's impeccable aim nails you in the face.

This game really sucks its stupid

Shoot, shoot, shoot, QUIT. This SERIES is complete garbage.

52 Mario Kart Wii

Apparently, this game was "so revolutionary" everyone forgot that there were Mario kart games before, I remember when Mario kart 7 came out, people at school were like "why are they going from Mario kart 1 to 7? It doesn't make sense" because I couldn't stand it, I decided to step in and explain the history of Mario kart, but still, it's just another Mario kart game, I also don't get much enjoyment out of Mario kart, or racing games in general. - Sanicball

This game is alright, but it just didn't do what other entries did. It ruined what the series was known for by making it way too luck based and when you win a race, it was luck. When will people talk about Mario Kart: Super Circuit?

Why people are saying that these childish Mario spin-offs like Sticker Star and modern Mario Party should be more praised than Mario RPG, most Super Mario games and etc is beyond me.

The only reason my friends will come round to my house is to play MK. And since I only have 2 Wii motes, and there's 3 of us, they're just driving away, laughing and smiling, and I just play Pokemon SoulSilver and look out of a window for 2-3 hours.

53 Mortal Kombat

No. The games are a lot of fun and are very easy to play. Besides, the characters (as well as their fatalities) are extremely memorable. There is more substance to this game beyond the fatalities than some may assume, especially in later games when the fighting system is a little more in depth. It may not be the most complicated fighting game, but it's one of the most fun and still holds up very nicely. - Mrveteran

Street fighter is always better than mortal kombat

I disagree, at least Mortal Kombat seems different from other fighting games, Street Fighter on the other hand is pretty generic and has been milked to death. - PinataonSugar

Always in the shadow of street fighter, Still is.

Street fighter V and Killer Instinct are well better, but Armageddon was amAzing

54 Mother 3

Overrated my butt. This game is just good. Who the heck thought this was an overrated game.

Why you people just don't get that this series and this game is a bunch of mediocre rpgs but final fantasy 7 higher than this stupid game that tries to be colorful but the boss battles were lackluster the gameplay is just tapping the botton in a rhythm its like dks final smash but the combos are not needed the complete the game the enemies are generic animals dinosaurs zombies ghoshts there's not much humor its should have been cancelled this should have been treated like duke nukem forever because of its delays but there's still more the game is too sad it's a fad the poplaity will just go and this game has a very cliche story very bland characters like we seen them all before unorginal soundtrack but still better than that earthbound #lamestgameever this game gets a 6/10 not a 10/10 - dinosaur

55 Goat Simulator

It's always funny

It's meant to be glitchy, dammit

Well,this game was meant to be a joke you know.

Ok... So I got a glitch when I was switching between the normal goat and the whale, and the whale ended up with the goats texture. It was disturbing.

56 Metroid

I think you're talking about Zero Mission or Super Metroid - xandermartin98

It sucks! Aged like milk.

The first Metroid game on the NES is probably the worst NES game ever. The music is ear rape, the graphics are weird, and the bosses sucks. If you wanna play the first game, play Zero Mission. It's a remake of the first game. And it rocks. - Chaotixhero

How many NES game have you played, 10? But I'll take your word on Zero Mission, I'll have to check that out. - LarryLarrington

Psh. Without this we wouldn't have your precious, more like idiotic, call of dooty or grand theft auto. Shut your mouths haters. :l

57 Super Smash Bros Melee

Really good game but a bad fanbase of nostalgiafreaks ruins it.

Cancerous competitive fanbase.

This game is my childhood, however I think it's overrated

The most overrated fighting game of all time. The fanboys of this game made me like the SSB franchise less than I used to. Besides, SSB4 and Brawl are better. - PerfectImpulseX

58 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

A tad overrated, but an amazing game none the less. Combat fell short, my only complaint. "roll, attack, roll, attack"

The most overrated piece of entertainment in the last decade. Holy crap, that was disappointing.

I agree. It's pretty overrated but it is still a good game. - IcetailofWishClan

Just overhyped.

59 Moshi Monsters

Moshi monsters is overrated. They have a limo, bus, and moshi jet! The millionaire who runs it is a idiot. It's such a boring game! It's not as safe as they claim it to be! Liars! People do all kinds of adult stuff. They are liars.

You pay 32 pounds for dustbin beaver and this stupid game is a ripoff of club penguin. - Harri666

When you log in you think what the heck is this junk?

It's just another Monsters In My Pocket/Pokemon/Digimon/Yu-Gi-Oh/Monster Rancher.

60 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

No possible way is this the best of the series, I'll give you 3 reasons why
1) Terrible Habit of making too many Symbolism (cooking eggs? Why? )
2 Action-Cutscenes are more interesting than the gameplay. (It's cool watching, but why am I not playing Raiden? Why should I wait for Metal Gear Raising? )
3) Every single time when you face any of the bosses like Laughing Octopus, Raging Raven, Crying Wolf, & Screaming Mantis you have to PAINFULLY watch them bitch and whine over their emo-suffering, they get out of suit when they're almost dead (making the fight more boring) and when you defeat them, Drebin unnecessarily messages you about their back story. Why do I really need to know about these crazy bitches? It ruins the story. I dare you not to skip any of them as say with a straight face that "it was awesome" in a matter of fact it NOT!

"Only Sony fanboys say this game is great because they don't want to admit that 360 has a much better game library."

Seriously the one who wrote this an EXTREME Xbox fanboy

Seriously what does Xbox has to do with this game

Whoever wrote must have not played a single MGS game

Nobody likes Metal Gear because of its story. Yet for some reason, Hideo Kojima decided to make Metal Gear Solid 4 the most story heavy game of all time... what.

This game is amazing. Best PS3 game EVER in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
