Most Overrated Video Games

41 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

42 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.

43 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.

Absolutely dreadful game. No fun gameplay elements, boring goal and addictive for my 'friends'.

This stupid pile of crap literally took my best friend, chewed him up and kept him in its stomach until dies a slow and painful death.

I have never wanted to gauge someone's eyes out any more.

All I hear is:
"Oh, join my clan it's called (INSERT DUMB NAME HERE)"
"You don't play Clash of Clans? Go die in a hole"
"What did you do last night on Clash of Clans? "
And if I say:
"Clash of Clans sucks"
They play the '**** you card' by saying:
"Oh...well uh...you play Tuber Simulator! "
"But I don't anymore"
"Yes you do"
"I don't"
"It still sucks."
"So does Clash of Clans"
"So does... Your face! OHH! "
"That is the worst insult ever."
"Your face is the worst insult ever! ...more

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 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

I think this game is VERY overrated because people think it's the darkest video game to be created.

Dark ≠ good. Least favorite 3D Zelda. Still great though, but not the best like everyone says.

Pretty much every Zelda game except the cdi games are overrated

Overrated, no. Underrated, yes. I don't claim it to be the darkest game ever, like dimwit below me. But it's the darkest Zelda game ever, which is a nice highlight in the franchise.

46 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Some of the options on this list are incredibly strange.

I Think Ocarina Of Time Is More Overrated Than This Game.

Most overrated Zelda game ever. People always talk about how this game has a gorgeus and beautiful art style and how it didn't really age, and because of that, the game is the best Zelda game of all time, and they forget how the gameplay in this game is awful, bland and boring! This game deserves to be in top 10 most overrated games ever.

The Zelda series in general is overrated. I know I'm going to get downvoted by some diehard fans but I just had to say it. I tried playing some of the games including Ocarina of Time. I don't get what the big deal is. You jump around the place and hit things.

47 Team Fortress 2

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 overrated

48 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.

49 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

Boring combat with a cringe worthy story. Fun if you like Disney but gosh I hate Sora.

50 SpongeBob SquarePants: Diner Dash

Never heard of this...

Yes, very overrated... - LOTP

51 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.

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 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...

54 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.

55 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 is this on here!

Because it's the only entry people still talk about and play every day?

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.

56 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

57 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.

58 Frozen Free Fall

Oh god I knew Disney couldn't resist spreading frozen into everything they make. Seriously this movie was so hilariously bad that even Atlantis Squarepantis was a better musical. The game isn't necessarily overrated just the movie

Take this off. I don't think it's that good a game, but it's very obvious it was only put here so somebody could make another dig at the movie Frozen- something irrelevant to this list.

It's Something Frozen Related
So... IT'S OVERRATED!

An even worse version of candy crush...

actually, it is...
FROZEN VERSION!

59 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

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

60 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?

I had a moshi when I was six. I haven't been on for five years now, so it's probably dead, considering it isn't capable of going to the shops by itself.
