41 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

42 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.

43 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

44 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.

45 Club Penguin

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. - PerfectImpulseX

47 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

48 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...

49 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.

50 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.

51 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

52 Tetris

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 - christangrant

53 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.

54 Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Let's be honest, the #1 reason this game is so popular is because people can make small fortunes off of different looking knives.

Just another overhyped fps game everyone thinks they're so cool for playing.

55 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.

56 Kingdom Hearts

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! - Daviddv0601

57 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.

58 Grand Theft Auto

Grand Theft Auto Vice City should be in this list. I hate that game.

The whole series or Grand Theft Auto 1? - POWERStarz2004

This, overrated? "F" NO! - Interrogator

59 Mario Party Series

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

60 Pong

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

A 70s kid or teen that played on computers he/she "This was the first game that existed you brats"
