81 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.

82 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

83 Bioshock

This game definitely deserves the praise. The atmosphere and story are absolutely spectacular. I would not call BioShock overrated whatsoever.

This game is incredibly overrated the story isn't great the quotes are overused and the game play is repetitive if you are looking for a good game play bioshock infinite instead

84 Pokemon Gold
85 Dragonball Xenoverse V 1 Comment
86 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.

87 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.

88 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

89 Soulcalibur
90 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

91 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.

92 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.

How many times did I see spin-off after spin-off that overshadowed the better Persona 3 and 5? - YourWaifuSucks

93 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

94 Disney Epic Mickey
95 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

Cannot beat a classic. N64 version never needed a replacement.

96 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.

A lot of people hate it though... never played it - HeavyDonkeyKong

97 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.

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.

98 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"?

99 Animal Jam
100 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
