61 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.

62 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

63 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.

64 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.

65 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

66 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.

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

This, and all other Call of Duty games, should be at the top.

68 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.

Talking about this in general, I rented a Club Penguin game on the Wii and it was so easy I beat it in just a day.

And I don't beat very many games.

69 Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

I love the Megami Tensei franchise, and Persona 4 is no exception. But when Persona 4 is the only game that people talk about out of the whole franchise, then wouldn't you say it's overrated? Persona 4 has great gameplay, but the problem is that there isn't enough. Half of the game is dialogue, which is incredibly tedious unless you like visual novels. When the characters are not advancing the plot (which doesn't seem to go anywhere in the first place) they're doing things that are completely unrelated and unnecessary. There are plenty of other MegaTen games out there that I believe are much better than Persona 4.

70 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

73 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

74 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I like this game more than Skyrim.

I've never heard of Oblivion. However, Skyrim is more than overrated. - TheRobertsFamily3

Any elder scrolls game is overrated

Objection! What about Arena? Nobody even talks about that anymore!

Great graphics, not enough voice actors, and gameplay was "dumbed"
Down from Morrowmind. Although Oblivion is not a bad game, it suffers from some very serious flaws. It's not that great as an RPG, nor as an action game. - Jake_Kane22

75 League of Legends

Well, it IS overrated.

Its overrated

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

Overrated. also incredibly toxic.

76 Brütal Legend
77 Pokemon Gold
78 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Zelda is plain boring. For combat games I prefer Souls and Bloodborne.

A great 2d game, but not nearly as good as oot, which is fantastic. There are many better 2d Zelda games

The Oracle games on Game Boy (along with Link's Awakening) easily crush this game.

I'm done here - xandermartin98

79 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.

80 Skylanders

See those little plastic creatures that they sell at the video game stores? Yeah, those are the "characters" you have to buy to play them in this game. Jesus Christ they're everywhere! Also, Skylanders destroyed Spyro.

Spyro is dead, and from what I can gather from this advert I watched, Crash is dead too. Rest in peace, childhood.

Haters. Haters everywhere.

Giants has the best minigame in 7 gen, skystones
