Most Overrated Video GamesJake_Kane22
The Contenders: Page 3
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
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
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.V 8 Comments
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.V 12 Comments
Good game yes best rpg ever no! -
This game is great. It's not overrated at all. Anyone who thinks it's overrated probably are undertale fans
Earthbound is a great game and it's so underrated. only a dummy thinks it's overrated
This game has become a holy cow. Even people who hate Nintendo as a whole don't dare touching this game because disliking it is just that controversial of an opinion.
I think this game just doesn't deserve this status.
It suffers from balancing issues (instead of being progressivly harder as the game nears its end, there are many difficulty spikes like the haunted mall, the first sanctuary boss and the slime-monster headquarter; the final dungeon and final boss are actually the easiest parts of the game since the scrolling health bar makes you immortal as long as you play fast enough)
The humour is uninteresting
The game uses palletswaps to a ridiculous degree
The status effects are annoying, especially homesickness and sunburn
The story, while trying to subvert RPG cliches, is still cliched. The whole thing about aliens invading the earth is very cliched and the game uses minor cliches like "a guy from a bad future travels back in time to stop it", "magic ...more
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
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.
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.
This game is an awful stain on RT strategy games.
Stronghold HD > This piece of garbage
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
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 timeV 9 Comments
Overrated. It's not as good as it used to be! Disney is making all the club penguin players look like idiots by putting "shake it up" on there! It's becoming a childish game. I'm quitting for sure. Disney just wants money! Don't get membership!
I used to play Club Penguin, it got so boring. Definitely not as good as it was. The last decent thing in there was the Marvel Super Hero Takeover! Which was alright.
I played it from about 4-7 but it wouldn't accept it when I tried to log in, I agree completely that Disney ruined it, and I only joined because it was 2008 and it was great then, however now all these dumb events and stuff have ruined it, and it's just bad now.
Thank land that they shut it down. - PerfectImpulseXV 13 Comments
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
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
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
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.
I really loved MKWii as a kid, but after playing MK8D, I just can’t get used to the awkward Motion controls. The rubberbanding AI is absolutely atrocious and the Battle Mode is very limited. It’s definitely overrated because it’s #1 on the list of “Best Mario Kart Games” on TheTopTens. Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Double Dash, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are miles better. - thunderstar1124V 5 Comments
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.
Honestly I've seen more hate than love for gen 3, probably from classicists but whatever, the gen 1 remakes were far cooler. - DensestPotato
I beat ruby with just 1 Mudkip
It's not overrated, it's just too good for you :-P
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
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
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
