What... TF2 is extremely underrated...
Maybe it's a little bit overrated but it's still the best multiplayer FPS of all time.
This shouldn't be here its fun - ikerevievs
This game may be a tad bit overratedV 12 Comments
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
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.V 4 Comments
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 - Phillip873V 17 Comments
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, skystonesV 5 Comments
The game got so much hype before its release with its commercials, merchandise, in-game cinematics and pre-order bonuses. Also, the Taken King should've been the real Destiny game to be released in the beginning. Only then the hype would've been worth it.
I don't think enough people like Destiny for it to be overrated
This is a major contender for this list destiny was worse than halo 4 and was made by bungie too and everyone complians that halo 4 sucks because it wasn't made by bungie the game isn't bad like another game like five nights at freddys but the game is so boring without the taken king expansion pack the story what story all it is is gaurding the dumb bot to open the door and the characters that do stuff don't do anything we know nothing about them and what did bungie promise a good story even borderlands the pre sequal had a better story and now the first two expansion packs are pointless just like 6 levels 6! and its like 20 dollors if you want this game buy the taken king and it fixes all the issues in the original release this game was better off delayed like the witcher 3 not rushed - ikerevievs
Destiny was ahead of it's time. It had xb1 graphic quality on my 360. And isn't that popular anyway. Fun, high quality game! - EliHbkV 2 Comments
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...V 1 Comment
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.
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.V 4 Comments
Tetris is synedochal with videogames, the purest most abstract distillation of eye-darting, finger-twitching, button-mashing action and a game that could only ever have been realised in digital form. Its simplicity and its psychological basis probably make it the most timeless game in existence.
But it is not the "ultimate" or even the "perfect" game: it evokes no memories and pushes no boundaries.
Tetris is only "perfect" because its design is so unambitious that it is virtually impossible to screw up.
There are plenty of games out there with all the virtues of Tetris, that also bring something new to the table, and they deserve at least some of the attention that Tetris has hogged over the years.
And that's why Tetris is (one of) the most overrated game(s) of all time. -
This game is so overrated, it's crazy. What is there about this game that is even somewhat gratifying? It didn't revolutionize the gaming industry in any way, that's for sure. It's not addicting - in fact, I can barely play this game for 10 minutes before getting bored out of my skull.
It would be one thing if the Tetris "franchise" had actually evolved over the years, but that's not the case. I don't know if it can even be considered a video game anymore, with all its appearances on iPods, the Internet, and even cell phones.
And yet, reviewers give high praise to this abused game. It ranked in the top ten in G4's "Top 100 Video Games of All Time" list. Many gaming communities rank Tetris very high up on their lists as well. Why? What is so good about this game? It's not revolutionary. It's not addicting. I don't understand. There is absolutely no reason that the game is treated the way it is.
I can't see how this is the greatest game of all time and to those who do think that I would like you to sit in a room and you have a choice of three games ocarina of time, super Mario bros 3, the last of us, halo 3, Grand Theft Auto 5, or tetris I don't think any of those people would choose tetris and the last time you probably played it was in a line at a store
This should be in the top 10 at least it's a game where you flip blocks around and that's it - christangrantV 12 Comments
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
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.V 5 Comments
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. - PerfectImpulseXV 7 Comments
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? KINGDOM HEARTS WAS A GREAT GAME. HAD A GREAT STORY AND I don't GET HOW PEOPLE CAN HATE THIS
The amount of people who can't wrap their head around this is ridiculous. OVERRATED DOES NOT BAD. Most games that are overrated are good. That's why their so popular in the first place. Also, opinions. People are allowed to have them.
I played this on ps2 best game ever great storyline great graphics and epic characters
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. - Sephilin
I hate anime so much! I hated when anime had a crossover with Disney! - Daviddv0601V 20 Comments
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
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.V 3 Comments
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! - HeavyDonkeyKongV 2 Comments
Nintendo, instead of making more party games, make a game people actually want. Super Mario Galaxy 3 for example.
Same game over and over and over when Nintendo could be doing something constructive
Overrated crap in every game. - imacg4
ENOUGH OF THIS FRANCHISE! - VideoGamefan5
Without it their wouldn't be any Pokemon or Call of Duty or god of war or world of warcraft or any video games so cut it some slack.
Maybe this was amazing forty years ago, but I don't know if anyone, even someone alive back then, could play it for a super long time in today's world.
This should stay on, there are much older games out there, ones at least years before the atari era of gaming
