Top Ten Most Overhyped Video Games of 2018

These games got too much attention in 2018 than they deserve.

Keep in mind, these games don't have to necessarily come out in 2018, they just have to be very overhyped and they receive a lot more attention than they actually deserve. So let us proceed with the list.

The Top Ten

1 Fortnite

It is a good game for the dank memes and all but yeah it's really overrated and also people calling it the worst game ever haven't played paper mario sticker star or superman 64 - B1ueNew

Why are people saying that Sticker Star is a horrible game? If it wasn't to be compared with other games in the series, I'd say it's pretty good. - Marxcute19

This game isn't actually that bad, but it isn't as good as everyone makes it out to be. I play it from time to time but there a plenty of other games I'd rather play - zombefied115

This one is the most obvious option - despite coming out in 2017, Fortnite hit its prime time in 2018 and dominated all the social media platforms...and it was the worst thing ever. - DapperPickle

I hate this super overhyped game

2 Battlefield V

This and black ops 4 are only overhyped because of the battle royale mode even though this is just infinite warfare all over again everyone is disliking the trailer and hating on it - B1ueNew

This game lost it's touch, man.
It's not that bad, but still, really EA? A battle royale mode included for $60 with extra DLC? Yum, yum, yum! - InTuRmIsHuN

Female soldiers in the frontlines! FANTASTIC! - Not_A_Weeaboo

3 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

This isn’t even 2018. - Not_A_Weeaboo

4 Super Smash Bros Ultimate

People just don't shut up about this game.

Every Youtube video or website or forum I go to there's always a group of people or a single person talking about this game.

I've seen less people talking about Fortnite and Battlefield V.

Maybe it's just that I find Smash to be an overrated video game series, but what makes Daisy worthy being in Smash and Waluigi not? - darthvadern

Probably because Daisy appeared in Super Mario Land and Super Mario Run? I mean, come on. Just give Waluigi some time while Nintendo should come up with some plans for Wario Land 6, Wario World 2 or a Waluigi game, then he'll be playable in the series. - TheYoshiPyro64

Everybody is talking about Waluigi while I'm just wanting King K.Rool - DapperPickle

This is the greatest

5 FIFA 19

Fifa is by far my least favourite video game series. - DapperPickle

It isn’t necessary bad, it’s just not different from the previous games. - Not_A_Weeaboo

6 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Teens think this is the only game that exists - B1ueNew

Only 14 year olds care about this game now - B1ueNew

7 NBA 2K19

I don't understand the hype honestly for these sports games - B1ueNew

8 Detroit: Become Human

This game is anything but overhyped. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I agree with NotAWeaboo, the only reason I know about this game is from when Jacksepticeye played it. I've never heard anything about it since. - TheInsomniac

9 Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 just seems like another open world sandbox to me...and even then the sandbox itself isn't that interesting by the looks of it. - DapperPickle

10 The Crew 2

The Contenders

11 Metal Gear Survive

How can something we expect to be terrible be overhype in anyway? - htoutlaws2012

It's Metal Gear Survive, I don't think I have to say anything else - DapperPickle

This game isn't even 'overhyped'. - InTuRmIsHuN

12 Far Cry 5
13 A Way Out
14 Mario Tennis Aces

From watching gameplay, I don't really think there's a lot to it. I wouldn't spend 60 bucks on it. - TheInsomniac

It seems like it will be good but then again this is what Ultra Smash should have been - Randomator

What's the hype about the Tennis exclusive again? - htoutlaws2012

15 Dragon Ball FighterZ

It's more or less another fighting game in my eyes and I'm not too interested in Dragon Ball - I'm not sure what everybody is buzzing about. - DapperPickle

Seeing its Anime you are somebody who is a fan of fighting games, or your not it cannot be in between in this case. - htoutlaws2012

16 Super Mario Party

Everyone one are going like "IT SAVED MARIO PARTY", No it didn't, it's called improved, and I'm sure the fans will find ways to bash this game too later on, don't believe me? Four words, Mario Party: Star Rush, a game trying to please fans because they weren't happy with 9 and 10, but it got hate, because? - darthvadern

I would love to have this game, It our family had a Nintendo Switch. - DinoLover4242

17 Marvel's Spider-Man

Really good, But missed a lot of things, There were a lot of Easter eggs that were good, but the villains weren't that great, I never knew why Doc Ock was so mad - B1ueNew

18 Roblox Roblox


I think it’s a good game

19 Agony

Never heard of it... can't see how this is overhype, but could make for a good Halloween episode based on the terrible scores given. - htoutlaws2012

This was a horror game that had everyone waiting for it’s brutal satanic atmosphere. Unfortunately the game was so bad that IGN’s 4/10 was viewed as correct. - Not_A_Weeaboo

20 Lego DC Super Villains

All these lego games are the same controls and gameplay and story for 59.99, I just don't get why people would spend 60 dollars on a lego game instead of god of war or red dead 2 - B1ueNew
