Most Overrated Video Games

61 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.

Just overhyped.

62 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.

63 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

64 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

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.

65 Super Smash Bros Melee

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

Cancerous competitive fanbase.

This game is my childhood, however I think it's overrated

The most overrated fighting game of all time. The fanboys of this game made me like the SSB franchise less than I used to. Besides, SSB4 and Brawl are better. - PerfectImpulseX

66 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.

67 Call of Duty: Black Ops

This game is so overrated, it makes Mario look underrated

Everyone somehow loves this game but I can't get into it. Every time I go in my family room somebody is playing it. This game makes me want to break my PS3.

Okami, Star Fox 64, Sonic Generations, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze are better and are my 4 favorite games of all time

I'm usually a Call of Duty fan ( not the mean ones) but honestly I never seemed to enjoy bo1

68 GoldenEye 007

I thought this game was really awesome when it came out, but give me a break I was like 6... all I know is "paintball Mode"

The thing that makes a game great is its core concept and how well it has stood in the face of time. Sadly, in Goldeneye's case the problem is that it hasn't aged well...at all. As is the case with every other N64 game, the graphics are just awful. The controls? Despicable. Since the N64 only has 1 analog stick, it makes shooting and aiming loose and clunky. And since the aiming reticule always returns to the center, you cannot aim properly without having a subtle grip.
And moving around is even worse than in Doom or Wolfensten 3D. Again, another reason is because of the N64 controller.
As for its "groundbreaking" multiplayer, unless you prefer playing deathmatch all the time, you'd best just play a bit of Quake instead whcih at least had more variety.
Overall, "nostalgia" is the main word here.

BY A MILLION MILES THE MOST OVERRATED PIECE OF MEDIA TO EVER EXIST!
Sure, Sure sure it was once revolutionary, Oh wait no it wasn't because Wolfenstein existed like 5 years before, Some very stupid people claim this game was the only good game on the N64, If you agree you really need a better taste in games. I highly recommend you watch JonTrons video on this game.

Completely agree. I heard a lot of people saying this is the best Nintendo 64 game ever, and one of the best video games of all time. So I got it, and I honestly thought it was just okay. The controls are very clunky and choppy. Moving left or right requires the analog stick, and up and down requires the C buttons. What the heck? I know that this is a 1997 Nintendo 64 game and 3D graphics were just starting, but these graphics look like someone smeared vasoline all over the characters. The game got a little boring after the 2nd level, so I stopped.

definitely an overrated game, but not as overrated as FNAF, Pokémon Go, or Undertale.

69 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The game got so unfair reviews and the only fair one I think is from Jim Sterling who gave it a 7/10. It is flawed beyond belief for a Zelda game. Weaponry is bad because it breaks every 3 - 10 hits which wastes your time and resources. - YourWaifuSucks

This game is like a drug addiction - TeamRocket747

I hate zealots who overrate this game too much. Even willing to DDoS a critic for it - YourWaifuSucks

70 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.

71 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

72 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

73 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

74 Jet Set Radio

Wait, why is this even on the list? - POWERStarz2004

75 Mega Man 2

Great game, most played megaman games and the soundtracks are great

Okay I will admit this game is good...but kinda overrated. I like the game don't get me wrong but compare it to Mega Man 3. MM2 feels so easy and buggy and it was kinda overloved. Maybe Mega Man 7 needs more love ya know. - Chaotixhero

Two words: METAL. BLADES. - xandermartin98

People only like this one because it is the only one they have beaten. enough' said.

76 Fallout

Horror fanboys love this one too

LEAVE FALLOUT ALONE! -Chris crocker

77 Pixel Gun 3D

The game wasn't so bad until the new update where it is so hard to level up and get coins

Pixel gun was good when it was in its early years. The old default skins where fantastic but now it's a total crappy wreck.

I used to play it but after buying the 'desert eagle' gun it's hard to get new ones unless your really skilled

78 Earthbound

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

79 Temple Run

I like this game... but I'll agree it's overrated.

All it's about is you running from a bunch of monkeys that are hungry.

Yeah... I knew it would lose its "fad" eventually.

So popular, well it used to. It wasn't even really that good.

80 League of Legends

Well, it IS overrated.

This game has the most toxic community in the history of video games - YourWaifuSucks

Its overrated

Boring MOBA done better in Dota 2 which still isn't that great. Snooze
But at least it's better than Hearthstone
