61 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

62 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.

63 Borderlands 2

This game actually has quite a bit of replay value, Easter eggs as far as the eye can see and not to mention guns guns and guns. I mean yeah I will agree some parts of the story were kinda forgettable but come on Call of Duty's campaign is just the same thing every year. As for multiplayer its actually quite fun. Overall I love this game but I would give it an 8/10 it really shouldn't be here

This game was an amazing game all together and for those of you who hate on this game maybe you should play all the borderlands it's a very interesting game I beat it with all characters and maxed 2 of them out it's a great game overall easy to say one of my favorite game series of all time and it relly isn't overrated because I didn't even know about it until my uncle showed me it it shouldn't even be here at all

Hated everything about it.

BL2 isn't overrated! It's a pretty expansive, fun, and memorable game. And the DLCs Triple the content! - EliHbk

64 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

65 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.

Cool Ego-Shooter! - Strobo

66 Fallout

Horror fanboys love this one too

LEAVE FALLOUT ALONE! -Chris crocker

67 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.

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.

I never hear anyone talk about this...
while...
OCARINA OF TIME IS LIKE 1,00,000,000,000,000 TIMES OVERRATED THAN THIS!

68 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

By itself, it's good. But, it SUCKS compared to the masterpiece that is Brawl!

I hate the game! It's not even fun for me any longer thanks to the lack of Story/Adventure Mode...

Really Overrated, But Still a Good Game - VideoGamefan5

Good But Too Much Hype

69 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.

70 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Why is this here? I see more hype on the normal world, I don't see anyone saying this is best.

YEAH! I NEVER REGRET STRONGLY PREFERRING THE SUPER MARIO WORLD DUOLOGY OVER YOSHI'S NEW (OR SHOULD I SAY DATED) ISLAND! - The Ultimate Daredevil

71 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

72 Pokemon Gold
73 Cave Story

Most of the people I know have never heard of this game. I know not any fanbase for it, and it is a great game. I would call it underrated. Also, there is a 3DS version!?

Overall, it's just way too easy. The Metroid and Zelda games often suffer from the exact same problem.

74 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

How many NES game have you played, 10? But I'll take your word on Zero Mission, I'll have to check that out. - LarryLarrington

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

75 Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time V 4 Comments
76 Soulcalibur
77 Animal Crossing

Ok, I love animal crossing, but it's a bit overrated. In most of the games, it's the same thing over and over again. Like this: You move into a town, get a job, finish it, pay off your house, do favours for the animals, catch fish, bugs, Decorate your house, and it just goes over and over. There's no story, and you don't even know why the kid left their parents to go to a animal town. When you get all the animals, have a mansion, get all the golden tools, and do all the holidays, it gets boring. I'm a fan but they need to make it more interesting! I hope new leaf (3ds) doesn't go over and over. All the games are like that.

This is an awesome game, but I do agree that it isn't as good as a lot of people say it is.

I am literally confused about how to play this game. I didn't expect much from Animal Crossing.

This is the best game in the world all of you people are crazy

78 Mario Kart 8

Classic Sonic characters > Princess Peach's alternative selves (yeah, I said it).

This Game Is So Bad, It's So Overrated It Makes Call Of Duty Look Underrated, But At Least Call Of Duty Doesn't Have A Stupid Pink Gold Princess Waste And Baby Space Peach, - VideoGamefan5

I know! Because you don't even talk about the gameplay, graphics, controls, Grand Prix, battle mode, items, tracks, etc. You just talk about the character roster. Why is that completely stupid? Well, your favorite characters are in the roster, so WHY DO YOU CARE? - DCfnaf

Call of Penis

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 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

Worst game rareware every produced well technically Microsoft but Microsoft bought rareware and this is a rareware franchise so yea bad game
