81 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.

82 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

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

83 Soulcalibur
84 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

85 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.

86 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

It seems everyone is forgetting what made Big Rigs so amazing. That infinite backwards acceleration.

I thought this was the worst - ikerevievs

No one likes this game though. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Overrated? MORE LIKE UNDERRATED

87 Disney Epic Mickey
88 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.

89 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

90 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.

91 Resident Evil 4

Why do so many people like I this piece of crap? - Interrogator

92 Jet Set Radio

Wait, why is this even on the list? - POWERStarz2004

93 Candy Crush V 2 Comments
94 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

95 Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
96 Resident Evil
97 Killzone 3

The entire Killzone franchise is overrated. Sorry PlayStation fanboys, but I never liked your crappy Dutch Halo/Medal of Honor clone.

98 Destiny

The game got so much hype before its release with its commercials, merchandise, in-game cinematics and pre-order bonuses. Also, the Taken King should've been the real Destiny game to be released in the beginning. Only then the hype would've been worth it.

I don't think enough people like Destiny for it to be overrated

This is a major contender for this list destiny was worse than halo 4 and was made by bungie too and everyone complians that halo 4 sucks because it wasn't made by bungie the game isn't bad like another game like five nights at freddys but the game is so boring without the taken king expansion pack the story what story all it is is gaurding the dumb bot to open the door and the characters that do stuff don't do anything we know nothing about them and what did bungie promise a good story even borderlands the pre sequal had a better story and now the first two expansion packs are pointless just like 6 levels 6! and its like 20 dollors if you want this game buy the taken king and it fixes all the issues in the original release this game was better off delayed like the witcher 3 not rushed - ikerevievs

Destiny is the only shooter I like.

99 Star Fox 64

The 64 Elitists need to shut up!

This here is why Star Fox Zero didn't have an original storyline. I miss when there was newer stuff to Star Fox but only if they did them right, like Star Fox Assault. But no, Nintendo had to pander to the 64 fanboys and created a flimsy rehash of Star Fox 64. - Rue

DEATH TO 64 ELITISM!

Lots of people say it was a great game. I'll tell you I didn't really enjoy it. - HALOOOOOOOO

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
