81 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

82 Rolling Sky
83 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

I can't give all the other Mario RPGs a chance yet. I only have some Mario & Luigi games. Never give Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story a chance unless you want to be tormented with anti-feminism. But the first two Paper Mario games are overwhelmingly phenomenal.

I Can't Believe This Game Is All The Way At The Bottom - VideoGamefan5

This Game Should Have A Much Higher Spot - VideoGamefan5

Mario fans stop saying it's the the best Mario RPG ever. It's not. Give all the other 8 RPGs a chance.

84 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.

85 Soulcalibur
86 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.

87 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

88 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

89 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

90 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.

91 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

92 New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Do you like this game because Princess Peach is in it instead of Princess Daisy? I guess it's not about that. We don't.

Great game don't care how bad the story is. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Story doesn't matter gameplay does the gameplay is good

Really? This is overrated? People constantly call the nsmb series a cashcow, I have infact never seen someone rank it higher than sunshine or such. - DensestPotato

93 Metroid: Other M

I haven't played the game but most people who talk about this game talk about how it sucks so can it really be overrated - Gamer4life

This game was a disaster. Just everything about, the story, the game holding your hand to much by telling you exactly where to go and how to get there, etc. - GentleTrouter

This game should not be here it tells the story of samus and gameplay was great they went back to the basics.
Anyone who says otherwise sucks dick.

No, everyone hates this, NOBODY in this world likes other M and for good reason. - DensestPotato

94 Garry's Mod

I play Garrys mod, but I will admit it's YouTube
Fandom makes it into an overrated mess, I guess the person who is the worst out of all of them would have to be venturiantale due to the fact that he is annoying, not funny, loud, and he is cursed with the worst fandom ever.

This isn't a Game, this is a mod for TF2... - noo7na7

It pisses me off that everybody has heard of this only because of YouTubers, FNaF, Undertale, or just because someone who played in 2011 or before told them about it.

This game is now very overrated ever since it didn't require HL2 to play.

95 Bayonetta 2

What does this and its predecessor really offer besides being over-the-top (beyond over-the-top, actually, thanks to this series I know that is indeed possible) in every possible way?

So the main character's a woman, big whoop. Those who want to act like this is all revolutionary and stuff, Lara Croft, Jade, Aya Brea, Joanna Dark, and Samus Aran would like a word with you.

What's so great about a game where the protagonist curses like a sailor and flashes her vayjayjay, and that's *all* the separates this game from "Devil May Cry"?

96 World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
97 Splatoon

This game isn't really overrated. - Rue

I don't enjoy this game but its not over rated

Not overrated.

At least it's low on the list... - mattstat716

It is a good game yes.
But it has so many problems that nobody notices.
We where all hyped for a shooter that would made by Nintendo, since they mainly do puzzle games like Zelda, JRPG's like Pokemon and platform games like Mario it was rather surprising to see them making a game of another genre.
And we centarily where happy of them finally making an original I.P. after so many years.
But with that many hype, it was kinda disappointing.
The singleplayer was kinda...boring.
The shooting was kinda dull, the levels where repetitive, the enemies weren't the most intelligent and the bosses where just dull "Shoot the spot and he dies."
And the platforming sections just didn't fit.
The multiplayer was quite repetitive, there where no game modes, it was just "Fill the whole place with paint and you win." Yes it is original and fun but it wasn't the best of ideas to make it the single game mode now was it?
And there is absolutely no weapon variety, ...more

98 Rock Band
99 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

Its probably the reason games are allowed to be enjoyed by adults (and obviously edgy teens). - DensestPotato

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

Street fighter V and Killer Instinct are well better, but Armageddon was amAzing
