Most Overhyped Video Game Franchises
The Top Ten
I like it though. - TriggerTrashKid
More like most overhated
I do play this game it's the best out of the Call of Duty fanchise in my opinion. I love the different exo mechanics. However saying it's my favorite doesn't make it under hyped. Everyone talked about this game at it's time of release Simply for the publicity it was getting. Again really fun game for me and I know not everyone loved it but it was still too over hyped
Black Ops 4 Has Battle Royale - WorldPuncher47592834V 12 Comments
BEST. GAME. EVER!
I think that people should stop talking about the franchise as if it was something new. Instead just treat it like a normal game, not one which the media posts articles about 24/7. Come on, it's been 6 years already! - Nayan2003
Simple as that. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
This isn't even a franchise, why is this here even if it is overhyped?V 7 Comments
Fortnite was good on launch but was taken over by children too young to play or adults who need to pick a better game and has such become overrated
It ain't even a franchise. - TriggerTrashKid
Game is overrated, just only that
Can you really call one game a franchise?V 15 Comments

Boooring! useless waste of time - Knoxx
Come on guys, the fastest selling game ever in Grand Theft Auto V, now that game is overrated and overhyped.
This franchise is not overhyped. Everyone finally realized that the game was using the same gameplay mechanics. - Nayan2003
At least it has storyline
There's more than one flappy bird 🐦 game?
All you do is tap a screen -
One word - PEWDIEPIE - Nayan2003
Flappy Bird, Flappy Bird Family... - noo7na7
I feel really intimidated by the fanbase and the huge timeline of games (what game is where, which Link is in the same time period? It's confusing...). There was a time when the whole format of the games was just being chucked up again until we got BoTW.
I think many fans put this series as "the best" probably due to nostalgia? I don't know. Also side quests in 3d Zelda games can be annoying sometimes.
But if the game used the same formula for multiple games, I hope the next game isn't some semi-carbon copy of BoTW.
Enough said. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
The whole series is very overrated with a horrible fanbase defending it. Ugghhh. OOT IS NOT THE BEST GAME EVER.
I actually agree, why is this on the list. - Nayan2003V 7 Comments
Call of Duty: *Changes setting, Story, Maps, Weapons, and graphics every new game*
People: SUCKS! THE SAME THING AS LAST YEAR!
Mario: *Same story and plot*
People: SO AWESOME! - B1ueNew
BotW was better than odyssey. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
All Mario RPGs that are older than Paper Mario: Sticker Star are phenomenal, especially Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story's predecessors, Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars and Paper Mario. How many times have I said that? Proof that Classic Nintendo is much better than Modern Nintendo, which is much less innovative.
Hopefully super Mario maker is Nintendo's last game. It's great, but they need to stop making Mario games. - Nayan2003V 2 Comments
Good game. Overrated, though. Still a less toxic fan base than 4tnite mobile. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
Worse than ice age villiage go play a real game like smash bros -
Now there are about 20 million games exactly like this on the app store, and people actually enjoy them?
This is actually a good game, the social aspects are integrated very well. - Nayan2003V 2 Comments
It’s so repetitive year in and year out. Almost as bad as FIFA - Randomator
I played Earthbound on the snes recently and I believe it is a little over praised. - Alapisboy
What the hell is EarthBound doing on this list? I am sure 90% of the users didn't even played it. - LaoShan
This is not over hyped it hasn't had a game in forever
I'm pissed we didn't get mother 3 still. Release it outside of JapanV 2 Comments
This was the game to me that may have ruined console games forever. It was the first game I personally bought in which it felt like I was intentionally only sold an intro to the game with the goal of the developer being for me to buy expensive add on content to just get a full game experience. Previous games like Borderlands had additional content for sale for it truly felt like "add-on" content, new scenarios only tangentially related to the story and fairly affordable. With Destiny, much like many mobile games, I feel like I got the demo version (for $60) and was expected to pay even more for the full version.
Oh, and it was really boring.
I know this will be controversial but I think that Mario Party was never good, not even on the N64. - myusernameisthis
2018: Mario Party 11 is released.
2020 somewhere: Mario Party 12 will rock the series. - WorldPuncher47592834
Gosh, This Series Is Overpraised, It's THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN! - VideoGamefan5
Ultimate, just stop. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
It's a great series, but It's incredibly overhyped.
If a new game comes out, there's probably going to be at least one video of a grown man crying while reacting to the reveal trailer. - Marxcute19
I’ll just be playing my 100% complete brawl and melee. Yes, both are 100% complete. I do have a girlfriend. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
Because it's awesome! A lot of us are already deciding which characters we think should be in the next game!V 2 Comments
Halo 3 god *nostalgic seizure* that hype
Halo 5 very much deserves to be on this list. The lack of splitscreen coop was simply too egregious an oversight to be forgiven and I won't forgive. You had one good game halo. Then three mediocre sequels and then you made me angry.
Actually the picture is correct I know people don't like 5, but 4 is really what started it for me you don't believe that look at where this is among disappointing games ever list. - htoutlaws2012
Halo was cool in its early days but now the new games suck. - Sage_Naruto
It sucks nobody liked this exepht hardcore shooter fans -V 1 Comment
WHAT THIS IS AN OUTRAGE
Um no comments? - Aey
Stupid to the max
Dumb - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
So Ovehyped, Just A Repetitive Pile Of Junk - VideoGamefan5
Just stop it Pokemon! Please just stop it! There is one point of time where a franchise is supposed to stop. And that probably should be now - Nayan2003
This problem has been fixed in later games, but in earlier games, get a pshycic type or dragon type, and your unbeatable. But now their are so many Pokemon that's no problem. - HeavyDonkeyKong
I am just talking about the first games red blue and yellow where phychic types were overpowered -
Very broken get a spychic type and you win -
That was just the first generation, Psychic is a pretty poor type nowadays. - KalloFox34V 2 Comments
The two games are quite decent. But the FANBASE? Noipe (that typo was intended).
It's great but overrated - Pokemonfan10
This game is garbage. - KalloFox34
Crappy overrated pile of garbage.V 2 Comments
Whoever put this on here will die a slow painful death.
THIS GAME IS UNDERHYPED! What is this list? Cave Story is general is underrated.
What is this game? - Nayan2003
The fanbase is filled with perverts and 8-year-olds. And the game itself is incredibly boring. - KalloFox34
Horrid pile of garbage. The only thing worse than the game is the fan base. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
Yeah,no kidding.I hate the fan-base.Freddy is not ready.And it is horrid,next to the bronies. - bendyfazjazz234
Way to many people like this its took over the worldV 1 Comment
I'm a furry, and the only reason that I like this game is because of the furry characters, besides that well, at least star fox 64, I'm not suer of the other titles he's in, but star fox 64 WAS HORRID. I mean... flying a plane around? You don't even get to really use the BA characters, maybe if there is a game where you can play as the characters I might like it but from what I've played isn't too good.
He's a BA smash Bros character though. - MoldySock
Not the best in the series -
Sonic is my favorite video game franchise because he is fast and the best games
The franchise is decreasing slowly, so this shouldn't even be on the list. - MasterCreepy
Which game though
He's a blue spiky thing.
We need less of him and more of Lammy, honestly - xandermartin98
Its actualy underrated - vela-nova
Okay, why the hell is this on the list? There are 3 games, and it was a cult classic the first game. People who love these games will be excited. Not everyone loves these games. How is this overhyped?
Terraria is one of the best games that I have ever played. REALLY fun. One of the best adventures I have had on my console. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
What... WHY IS THIS ON THE LIST!?
Terraria is very hidden! Really great game. - MasterCreepy
This game shouldn't be on here, this isn't too hyped because of being exclusive to one console - Nayan2003
The series is epic but... how many pepole play this?
