Top Ten Most Over-Hated Video Games/FranchisesGarythesnail
The Top Ten
Now, before the flamewarriors come, hear me out: Call of Duty was, once upon a time, an IMMENSELY overrated game series. And the fans? Yeah, they could be annoying. However, nowadays, if you so much as compliment these games, you're labelled a fanboy and are given 1,000 reasons why the series isn't good. I don't even LIKE the Call of Duty games much, but it's just become such an overhated franchise that it deserves top spot. - Garythesnail
To be honest, I'm okay with this franchise. The reason why people are hating on this because of the fandom. By the way, every fandom gives the franchise a bad name. - Delgia2k
The franchise was good, but Call of Duty went bad when ghosts came out and the last good Call of Duty game was BO2
Activision is to blame for milking the franchise, pretty much ever game from COD1 to Ghosts is goodV 6 Comments
Yes, anything by Rare as part of Microsoft will be hated by dumb fans for dumb reasons. Nuts and Bolts was a good Banjo game despite not being like it's predecessors, and people still need to get over the fact that Rare is no longer owned by Nintendo (and never will be again).
I really don't see where all the hate for this one comes from. It's a good game, really. It's not what you'd expect, but if nothing else, it's pretty good if you give it a chance. - Garythesnail
I'm not a fan for this game because it was nothing like the original Banjo Kazooie. - nintendofan126
Kirby's Epic Yarn wasn't like original Kirby. Mario Kart isn't like original Mario. Yet both are highly acclaimed games. - Garythesnail
This Game Deserves It's Hate, It's The Spawn Of Satan - VideoGamefan5
It's not perfect, but honestly, it does actually get a lot right. I'd like to see another Sonic game try some of the same ideas again in the future. With improvements, of course.
This game was awesome. So many people hate it because it's a better game than Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto.
Should be number 1. It is one of, if not MY FAVORITE Sonic Game and gets hate for dumb reasons. How do I know? Watch IGN's review of it. - DCfnaf
It isn't as bad as some of the other sonic games. Not sure how this became Number 3.V 5 Comments
This is hated because of the Melee fans. - DCfnaf
Who hates Smash? Call of Duty fans?
I think this is hated because of Dantems list reasons why smash bros is better then mortal kombat,I like them both the same,but the reasons on that list were dumb - Nateawesomeness
When you really get down to it, most if not all of the hate that Sticker Star gets comes from things that other Paper Mario games have done before. Change the gameplay? Super Paper Mario did it, too. Barebones story? That's the first game in a nutshell. No real reward for regular battles? Due to how the Paper Mario games (and for that matter, the Mario & Luigi games) are set up, you can actually skip most battles in the game and still beat the final boss. It's hard, but not impossible. Bosses that require a specific method to defeat? I dare you to beat the Armored Harriers without using the Yoshi kid. Go on, try it. I can wait...What? You couldn't do it? Shocking. Too much backtracking? I've got two words for you: General White. With all that said, why does Sticker Star, and only Sticker Star, get hate for all of this?
I think it gets hate because of the fact you don't get experience for battling. I don't think that's a valid reason to hate it, though. - Solacress
It's the worst of the Paper Mario games, but you could still have SOME fun with it. If they fixed the experience issue, it would be an okay experience. - DCfnaf
I Really Didn't Like This Game, I Mean, I Used To Like It But It Gets Boring Really Fast.
This Game Is Very Mediocre, Color Splash Is Bad - VideoGamefan5
I think Color Splash was actually better than Sticker Star due to the environments and battle system being better. - DCfnafV 4 Comments
It was a new thing but now it's is just like a boring game and I think that stealth games are better
Infinitely better than Command.
Not as great as the other Star Fox games but still good. Is not worth hating.
Wait, isn't this widely considered the best Mario Kart game and one of the best Mario games ever? Why is it on this list?
This is considered the best one. Why is it here? - DCfnaf
Shouldn't even be on this list. This game deserves all the hate it gets.
This game gets so much hate just because of the story and multiple endings (although I wish it had a true ending), but it is still a solid title with good gameplay and such.
It's not the worst game ever and it doesn't deserve the hate it gets.
No Doubt way better than Wand Of Gamelon
Best game ever.
Who in their right mind would hate Pokemon? It has explicitly stated so many reasons why you can't compare it to trapping animals and making they follow your bidding, it is very developed, even more developed than Mario, and it's just overall a fun franchise. - Solacress
So sick of Pokemon haters, they're one of the worst haters and they don't realize how much a success the franchise has been, whether it's the games, show or comics.
I honestly love this game.
*sigh* When will the world realize that Terraria is nothing like Minecraft? Terraria is 2D, Minecraft is 3D. Terraria has humans, Minecraft does not. Terraria uses character customization, Minecraft uses skins. Terraria has 100+ Weapons, Minecraft only has 6. Go hate on a Minecraft clone that legit clones Minecraft!
Enough with the Minecraft fanboyism, this game is better. - DCfnaf
Why is this in this list? Minecraft fanboys?
I love it
The game itself is good, but the fanbase is arguably the most toxic behind Call Of Duty. - MKBeast
No Minecraft is overrated. - DCfnaf
It is messed up game in the world
The creator is a Brony.V 1 Comment
Yes! I'm so sick of Sonic 2006 being claimed as the worst when it's far from the worst. It may not be perfect, but it still has it's likable points.
Let's face facts, if this game wasn't Sonic the Hedgehog it wouldn't get nearly the amount of hate that it gets. It would be considered bad, sure, but wouldn't get the reputation as one of the worst games ever.
I like this game, I thought the game play was bad but not terrible, and the characters were likable in a way, does not deserve to be the downfall of the Sonic franchise
It's a bad game with a great soundtrack, some good ideas, what with three mechanically different characters, and a somewhat acceptable story, even if the fanfiction inspiring moments were extremely cringe worthy. - MKBeastV 1 Comment
It seems like people are hating it because of lack of the main characters. Sometimes things can be different.
The game itself is fine, but the main reason it's getting so much hate at the moment is because Nintendo decided to issue a copyright strike on Another Metroid 2 Remake, easily one of the greatest games in the franchise and possibly the best video game remake of all time besides Super Metroid...
and then spotlight this pretty much average-tier spin-off game instead. - xandermartin98
I have to disagree, this game was horrible. - DCfnaf
I honestly don't see how it's so bad. Strange and hilariously bad cutscenes help make up for the dull gameplay. - Garythesnail
The game is obviously meant for people who need to learn how to type. - Garythesnail
The hate this game gets is so stupid: The fanbase doesn't kill the game. "BUT IT IS AN EARTHBOUND RIPOFF" the creator loved Earthbound as a kid and got inspired off of it! If every game was original, there would only be three games. - DCfnaf
Literally 90% of this game's hate is directed towards it's (admittedly horrible) fanbase and not the game itself. Guys, hate on bad games for being bad games. Not because they're popular or their fans or annoying.
Something that people who hate on Call of Duty, Final Fantasy 7, Five Nights at Freddy's and a few others should take into account. - Virtualman
It gets so much hate - SansTheComic
The fanbase of this game are annoying - LuckyDashy
This game gets so much unwarranted, undeserved and unfair hatred. Yes, 3 is much better, but half the complaints for this game are either harsh, stupid or hypocritical.
Everyone is bashing the franchise over Unity's buggy launch. - Therandom
I hate when people call sonic "overrated" when I doubt they even played his games to begin with.
And besides, how can it be "overrated" when it gets too much undeserved hate to begin with?
Most of the people who just hate on sonic are just trying to find a scapegoat to make fun of or are just trolls who don't have anything better to do than to hate on a great franchise. It's simply not funny.
yes - DCfnaf
Everyone is hating on this game, but I can't figure exactly why. I've been playing this game for a while now and it's kinda fun, sure, nothing special, but it has a lot of mini games so that you don't get bored easily. And before you ask, no, I'm not 10, I'm 15, but Roblox isn't a game only for kids or too boring or really stupid. Everywhere I go I can hear all kind of insults towards it: 'Roblox is stupid' ; 'Roblox is boring' ; 'You are playing Roblox?! What are you? 9? ' and I bet most of these people didn't even play the game once. I get the fact that not everybody can enjoy a game, but at least don't insult it without even playing. Did you watch somebody else playing and you think it's boring? Try it yourself first! You don't like it? It's fine, alright! But don't insult people that are playing it and enjoying it, that is really rude. And everybody is throwing all kind of insults towards this game without having any reason. This is a truly overheated game.
The worst game ever why isn't this number 1? It has the worst fanbase besides undertale
Both parts overrated and overhated. The first game was a welcome change to the horror genre, but the fanbase was extremely toxic, the second game was good, and both 3 and 4 sucked. Not sure about Sister Location, but I've heard it was the best FN game in some time. - MKBeast
This game franchise is fantastic, it has an in-depth story (it's not just about jumpscares) and doesn't deserve what people give it. The creator, Scott Cawthon doesn't care about the money he earns from the games, he donates most of it to charity. A fanbase doesn't kill the official franchise, look at Sonic, they're still going to this day even AFTER Sonic Boom.
It's a stupid game in the world I hate this game
Fnaf is good, I pretty enjoying the story. But there are so many people hate it because its not a scary horror game. I don't even know why they care. And also, the fanbase sucksV 1 Comment
I thought this game is overrated don’t get me wrong it is a cute racer but there are so many better racing games out there.
It's bad, but not THAT bad. Not worse than Over the Road Racing, at the very least. - Garythesnail
Bad But Still Underrated.
I don't get the hate this game gets. People just hate on it because it's different from most of the other Battle Network games. - PerfectImpulseX
Halo 4 and Halo 5 do not deserve the hate. Sure, both had weak stories, and 5 needed split screen, but 4 had a good multiplayer and I took a liking to Spartan Ops, while 5 had phenomenal multiplayer, and I greatly appreciated Warzone firefight and its inclusion of a custom games browser. - MKBeast
Halo is overrated. - DCfnaf
I don't think this game is as bad as everyone thinks it is. - Thifer20
Psychic Specters is great.
CRAP GAME! MINECRAFT IS WAY BETTER!
I'm sick of Bubsy haters...
No - MKBeast
People hate this game because of the enemy design. YOU'RE GONNA KILL 'EM ANYWAY, WHY DOES IT MATTER!?
This game was awful - ikerevievs
I know this game is flawed, but it's far from the worst game ever. I feel that the internet just over exaggerates hate about a game at least 90% of haters (sonic haters/non-fans) haven't even played. And that hate gets doubled just because it's a SONIC game. It's a flawed but decent game if you have low expectations, but try telling that to all the sonic haters out there who think this game is worse than cancer. 😡
