81 Earthbound Earthbound

Good game yes best rpg ever no! -

Earthbound is a great game and it's so underrated. only a dummy thinks it's overrated

This game is great. It's not overrated at all. Anyone who thinks it's overrated probably are undertale fans

I loved it but,
-Stupid Teleportation mechanics
-Slightly repetitive
-Bland Combat

82 Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Why put the brawl

What? Brawl is a great game!

Remove this from this list, I'd call brawl underrated compared to melee.

I'm Glad This Is at The Bottom Of This List, And Melee And Wii U Are Higher Up, You Mad Wii U And Melee Fanboys? , Well That's Your Fault For Being Competitive And Rude - VideoGamefan5

83 League of Legends League of Legends

Well, it IS 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.

84 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Overrated? It's far from overrated. It might not be the best game on the face of the planet, but to call it overrated is a sin. The worst part of the game was Navi the fairy. The graphics were great for it's time, the levels were progressively challenging, and the weapons and items were amazing, AND you could time travel! Do this website a favour and take this game off the list. This list however shows the credibility of this website. Two Halo games on the list and Ocarina of Time, pathetic. - patrickmoore

It is overrated. you say its not the best game, but have you checked the best video games of all time list?

How is this not number 1. Each Zelda game that followed improved on everything this game has done but you guys still think it is better than eny other game on the planet. It is the worst 3D Zelda game. Critics should look past Nostalgia, Influence and Age, if they do they will see this game is weak compared to Skyward Sword, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask. The fishing isn't that fun either. The music isn't that good. The Dungeons are fun but they could of been more interesting. The Bosses are Overrated, Navi's Annoying, The Running Man is Unbeatable and the story isn't a masterpiece either. I think people should just move on. Ocarina was great for its time but now it is nothing. So many games have came out after this that are both better and more fun than this game. But you guys are closeminded and refuse to change your opinion but you want to. This should definitely be Number One. No game has ever gotten WAY TOO MUCH PRAISE than it deserves. It should be a sin to ...more

Ocarina of Time is undoubtedly a fantastic game. But there are SO many fanboys/girls that attack anyone and everyone who says this isn't their favorite Legend of Zelda game. You grew up with this game and have nostalgia for it? FINE! It's your favorite game of all time? FINE! You attack anyone who disagrees with you just because you like this game? ACCEPT SOMEONE ELSE'S OPINION!

The fact that Wind Waker is higher than this game on an overrated list makes me feel like I'm dissociating and what I'm seeing is not real. - Rue

87 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island 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.

88 Skylanders 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

89 Cave Story 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.

90 Soulcalibur
91 Angry Birds Go Angry Birds Go

Angry Birds Go... Away. And close the door behind you. And never come back.

92 Batman Arkham Origins 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

93 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.

94 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Really Overrated, But Still a Good Game - VideoGamefan5

95 Animal Crossing 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.

IS NOT! It has different features per game. Animal Crossing, yeah, basic stuff. City Folk, I don't know. Wild World, uh… yeah, the same as the first one… but then, BAM! Enter 2013! New Leaf, the best Animal Crossing game, gives you the chance to become mayor, do unknown multiplayer (island) AND gives you more shopping choices. Next, 2015, OH, 2015! Happy Home Designer! Nintendo has thought of a totally new and creative game. Creating your houses, FOR FREE?! More clothes, FOR FREE?! Pro Designs, again, FOR FREE?!?!
Don't get me started on amiibo Festival, I know I'll be hated.

Good game but overrated - MiaoMiaoMiao

96 Super Smash Bros.

I guess you should know, you're probably 4 yourself, and besides this game deserves the fame it gets, it's too good to be true when you first hear about it, bilut absolutely amazing.

I do agree if you're talking about the original game. - xandermartin98

That's right. I did it. Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 64 is garbage compared to Melee and Brawl. The graphics looks ugly, the character roaster is cheap, and the music is...forgettable. Melee, Brawl, and Wii U are so much better. Skip it. It's not worth it. - Chaotixhero

97 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing 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

98 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 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

99 New Super Mario Bros. Wii 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.

100 Metroid: Other M 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
