Most Overrated Video Games

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 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

43 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.

44 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

45 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.

46 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

47 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.

Just. No.

Hentai + TF2 = Profit

48 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.

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 Doom

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.

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 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

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 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

Who post dis they will die dis no overrated it fun and addicting

55 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.

56 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.

57 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.

58 Mortal Kombat

No. The games are a lot of fun and are very easy to play. Besides, the characters (as well as their fatalities) are extremely memorable. There is more substance to this game beyond the fatalities than some may assume, especially in later games when the fighting system is a little more in depth. It may not be the most complicated fighting game, but it's one of the most fun and still holds up very nicely. - Mrveteran

Street fighter is always better than mortal kombat

I disagree, at least Mortal Kombat seems different from other fighting games, Street Fighter on the other hand is pretty generic and has been milked to death. - PinataonSugar

Always in the shadow of street fighter, Still is.

59 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

60 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.
