41 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Modern Warfare is great! But I can agree, it might be overrated... But the game is still awesome. This game, number 2 and 3 for it too, aren't overrated. Just purely and simply... Good and awesome. And this is coming from a girl. Most boys love this game. People who voted this are probably little sissy girls. I voted to say what I said.

Oh, When I clicked this I thought it was talking about Modern Warfare in general. They add absolutely nothing each game and try and pass them off as a brand new game. You play one, you've played them all.
P.S Why is Halo CE /Halo 3 on this list? Those games well deserved their popularity.

Some people has compared this to Uncharted 2! What?!
Uncharted is an amazing game by Naughty Dog, this is just in a line of copy paste sequels! And for WHATEVER reason, I see this game in a LOT of top ten lists. It just doesn't deserve it.

This Is When Call of Duty Started To Get Popular

42 Assassin's Creed 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.

43 Guitar Hero

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

Without Guitar Hero
I would only listen to bad pop Minecraft songs
And now I like better music
And it also made me try to play a real guitar
Almost one year and I can almost play the full song of Pour Some Sager On Me
On A Real Guitar

Play a real guitar

44 Shovel Knight

Seriously, I love this game and all, but why does everyone always talk about it like it's the next Cave Story? - xandermartin98

This is one of the best indie games on wii u how is it on here

Why is this on the list? It's one of the best new old-school platformers.

45 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

46 Mario Party Series 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

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

48 Sonic the Hedgehog 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

The most overrated platformer of all time

49 Destiny Destiny

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 is the only shooter I like.

50 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 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.

51 Super Smash Bros Melee Super Smash Bros Melee

I Like Smash Bros Melee And I Say That Smash Bros Brawl Is A Good Game - CuteGirlJigglypuff

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

Cancerous competitive fanbase.

People like Super Smash Bros Melee over all the other games because it's "more competitive" and "Nostalgic"

Also the man behind Smash regrets making Melee being as competitive as it is. That's why Brawl and Smash 4 are more targeted towards casuals instead of being centered around the competitive fans. - Rue

52 Counter Strike: Global Offensive 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.

53 Overwatch Overwatch

It's having way too much attention as if it was something new to the gaming industry. TF2's gameplay is similar and it's FREE. I only like the attitude of some characters of the game, like the gorilla and the girl with the british accent. But the gameplay is nothing new to people who have already played this type of game. However, it's on consoles so people who can't play or own a PC will just take advantage and buy it.

Nothing really new here. Inspires heavily from a F2P game, but it costs $40. This isn't a game you can sit down and play non stop, this is more like a game that you can go "I have a few hours to kill, I'll play Overwatch" This game shouldn't even be on console as it's a team based game, and no one wants to talk on console, compared to PC where you have game chat and mic built into computers.

Some of the characters are downright better than others, whereas other characters don't feel like they belong in the game.

This game only shines on PC, where the controls are great and the accessibility to team conversation is open.

54 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.

Jam packed full of indians

55 Battlefield 3 Battlefield 3

This game is continuously defended by fanboys that can't find better shooters. The multiplayer is good about 10 percent of the time. The other 90 percent is a nightmare. How do you heal a bullet wound with a health pack? Defibrillators revive people with bullets in their face? Leaving people on 2 or EVEN 0 percent health and still getting killed by them! Teleporting out of a burning tank that took 4 rockets to destroy and then killing you in a second, only for them to repair the destroyed tank with more fire. That's just a little bit of the game.

I actually preferred Bad Company 1 and 2.. otherwise boyfriend turned into another Call of Duty with better online mechanics

Who ever put this here should go hang them self. Battlefield is always amazing especially Battlefield 4. There's too much Call of Duty fans in the world. - DunnaNunnaBatman

Bad company 2 was the only good one

56 Super Mario Galaxy 2 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.

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 game sucks. Princess Peach got pissed, & during her kidnapping, she probably complained about having to go to the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

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

57 Team Fortress 2 Team Fortress 2

Maybe it's a little bit overrated but it's still the best multiplayer FPS of all time.

Good, but hard to not play if you want to do something else which bugs me!

Guy 2 before me is to right praise to you.

Sorry, team fortress Poo, you killed your now crap game.

I'll settle for pvz: Garden warfare any day.

What is wrong with you. Doom is not overrated. If anything, it's underrated!

Thanks to the Call of Duty kids, this is now underrated.

59 Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing 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...

60 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune 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.
