61 Grand Theft Auto

Grand Theft Auto Vice City should be in this list. I hate that game.

The whole series or Grand Theft Auto 1? - POWERStarz2004

This, overrated? "F" NO! - Interrogator

62 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

Overrated crap in every game. - imacg4

ENOUGH OF THIS FRANCHISE! - VideoGamefan5

63 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

64 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

65 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.

66 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

67 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

68 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!

69 Fallout

Horror fanboys love this one too

LEAVE FALLOUT ALONE! -Chris crocker

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.

Cool Ego-Shooter! - Strobo

71 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

72 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

73 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

74 Pokemon Gold
75 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

76 Cave Story

You didn't go there dawg. How can cave story even be underrated with such a small fanbase and little to no attention? - DensestPotato

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.

77 Soulcalibur
78 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.

79 Batman Arkham Origins

Fun? Yeah I guess. Great game? NO! Arkum Origins is really not all that great at all. It's just Arkum City with new crap. Nothing really special about it. Oh and the story sucks. - Chaotixhero

80 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.
