I kind of think that Undertale deserves the attention it gets. Sure, go ahead and hate me for it, I don't care. People like different things, ya know? Personally, I really like Undertale. I liked the plot, I liked the characters, I liked the soundtrack... and so on and so forth. I can understand why people would dislike, however. I know that some people don't like the graphics and stuff, or the fandom ruins it for them. And yes, the fandom is pretty... strange. But just because a lot of people like it doesn't mean you should automatically think it's bad. Maybe you should give it a chance? At first, I thought that it was extremely overrated, and I thought it would be really bad. But I gave it a try, and well, I liked it. So yeah, you might not like it right away, or you might not like it at all, but hey, at least you tried!
Great game with a decent concept that is well executed...HOWEVER, I stopped being a fan after a month after it released because the fanbase got so disgustingly horrendous that I could not get myself to appreciate the game anymore. Worst fanbase in existence for me and a fanbase never drove me away from a series I enjoyed until I came across this one. - Rue
Undertale has to be the most overrated thing I have seen in a while. I can't see why people like it, either. I've played the game and It was horrible. How about you switch to Earthbound, which this rips off
One day somebody is going to throw out another game that everyone starts overhyping and overrating and then Undertale will get thrown into the "crappy games" pile along with Minecraft and FNaF. You just watch. - DCfnaf
Too overrated. Should be number 1 on this list. Almost everyone loves it but the haters get hated on because they hate it. I love the game, but it's just too overrated man...
Well, most of the "haters" are just salty trolls to begin with, so they kind of deserve it. - xandermartin98
Undertale is far from perfect, I'll admit that. But people seem to despise it because it's popular or they hate the fandom. The ones who hate the gameplay itself are actually very civil and I can see where they come from.
I get that the fandom's usually obnoxious as crap, but some of us are normal enough.
Why hate a game for it's fandom?
I'm going to be honest here, Undertale is not a good game. - Mai_sentry
Gamers logic in 2015:
8/10 indie game: it's the best game ever!
8/10 game made by a big name: this game is so overrated!
Why is this a thing?
Am I the only one who honestly thinks that (by and large) Cave Story, despite lacking Undertale's exposure, was actually vastly more overrated than Undertale? Like seriously, what's so surprising about a role-playing game being overrated? - xandermartin98
Wow. An 8-bit game with awful and forced humour with the most childish, stupid characters with the most poorly written story ever made released in 2015. This should've been game of the year?
I like this game but I agree that it's overrated.
This game is just flat-out stupid. Nobody who isn't an idiot likes it. I've tried to like it but all that went into my head was, "RIPOFF OF THE EARTHBOUND SERIES." You know what I mean if you watch The Game Theorists on YouTube.
Considered to be the best game ever made, despite simply being an average indie game.
Son, you are going to eat those words, believe me.
It may be the most overrated RPG since Final Fantasy VII and Xenogears, but it is still by far one of the greatest games of all time for its amazingly heartfelt storytelling experience alone. Trust me. - xandermartin98
Fanbase Overrates it, it's a good game just not as good as the fans are saying
It's not overrated. It deserves its popularity.
On the other hand, the fandom is incline to be a little... excited about it. In other words, they bring a lot of Undertale everywhere and I can see why people are getting sick of it. But if you play the game, you'll see why it's the center of attention right now.
I hate Undertale so much. Everyone In my school talks about it. It ruined everything to. It ruined Steven Universe, Vocaloid, Anime and history. I TRULY hate Undertale so much.
It is NOT the best indie game, there are several others that could compete for that title. Undertale doesn't even come close.
WHY is this so low? Undertale is a good game itself, but the fanbase is terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE
The infamously horrible fanbase is one problem, but I don't get WHY this game got so popular! Boring, tedious sparing nonsense in Pacifist, Genocide trying way too hard to make you regret PLAYING THE GAME and Neutral, the least boring route having a crappy ending makes it a nuisance to play no matter what you do! Music? Good, yes, but many other RPGs (Mario and Luigi, Bravely Default etc.) have much more enjoyable music. Story? Confusing FNAF-ish nonsense designed to drag in crazy theories just like FNAF did. Characters? A creepy little kid with no personality at all, an overprotective goat lady and a pun addicted skeleton are just a few "awesome, interesting" characters. To end it off, play something else, folks. Time better spent.
It gained the title of the best game ever in a poll. Ended up being nominated in a game of the year list. It's the highest rated PC game on Metacritic. And game theory gave it as a gift to the pope. And... despite all this, people keep saying that it's not overrated. This got to be a joke lol, what a bunch of retards. I think we can all agree that this game makes Call of Duty itself look underrated.
The game is pretty good but the fandom make it an overrated game I liked the game but I hated the fandom
I hate it how people say how great Undertale is and how sad and funny it is and how good the graphics are, then I tell them the graphics are comparable to Bubsy 3D's. It's only sad how overrated it is. What did it revolutionize? People thinking twice about gaming's good fanbases. "But TrueBlue, Undertale is a creative masterpiece! What did it ever do to you? " Oh, it only ruined my friends online. Thanks Undertale. - TrueBlueHeroes
As a huge fan of this game, I can say it IS pretty overrated. (even though it's my 2nd favorite game).Wherever you go in minecraft servers you see Sans and Papyrus skins EVERYWHERE! And everyone just likes it for humor,but I like it for its deep story to be honest.
It won the title of the best game ever in a poll. It was nominated in a Game Of The Year award list. It's the highest rated PC game on Metacritic. And Game Theory thought it was worthy of being given as a gift to the pope. And... despite all of this, people still say that it's not overrated at all. This got to be a joke, right? I mean, this game literally makes Call of Duty itself look underrated...
Bad game and the fans don't help, they act like it invented puns and skeletons. It's a Earthbound/Mother rip off
