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

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

I guess it's decent. But really people only play this game because it's free. This game would have been dead AGES ago if it wasn't free. It's just Minecraft Hunger Games with guns and realistic graphics, how is it game of the year? It's super repetitive, the fan base is TERRIBLE, Ninja is a horrible influence on children, it's insanely rng based, it's unbalanced, you have to pay in order to get good skins, and overall it's just a broken mess.

Now, I don't think Fortnite is terrible, but it's far from the amazing game people make it out to be.

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

2 Battlefield V

You know it's going to be an authentic WWII experience when there's female British soldiers with prosthetics on the front line. And add some crippled black lesbian Soviet soldier into the mix perhaps. Battlefield 1 was good and there's no way I'm going to buy this. - Bolshoy_Brat

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 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

No geno, ain’t cool

4 FIFA 19

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

Another installment was never needed, due to the hight amounts of microtransactions, payments and DLCs released in the past few years. However, since EA and their businessmen obviously want more money, we'll have to suffer until they break down to dreg.

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

I don’t know about you guys, but this is probably the 3rd WORST game in Fifa’s history. I was really hyped about the Journey Champions (which is a piece of trash) and Fifa 19’s career mode including the Champions League, Europa League etc. When it came out, I was absolutely disappointed. The passing is just as bad as the goalkeepers in this game, bicycle and scissor kicks are overpowered in career mode and you can score more goals from corners than a one on one. I will get Fifa 20 ONLY to see what would happen after the Journey. Fifa 19 is by far one of the worst games of 2018. - AnLSUQB

5 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Ya this came out last year, I think - VeganTurtle

Not exactly 2018, but stil,
luvd it - TheBookworm

This isn’t even 2018. - Not_A_Weeaboo

6 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Another battle royale game with the name "Call of Duty" slapped on it. I swear, if the next DOOM game or the long awaited Half-Life 3 is going to be a battle royale game then I'm going to pull the trigger. - Bolshoy_Brat

I bet all game companies are going to say "Hey let's take out the single player campaign and replace it for a BATTLE ROYALE" - B1ueNew

I hate that games like call of duty and battleground are stealing battle royale from Fortnite I am so tired of it too

All my friends play this crap now. I have nothing to do but to jump into the wagon. - B1ueNew

Let's be real, all Call of Duty games are overhyped. - MrCoolC

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

Yea me to Jack plays a lot of cool sfuff

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

It's a good game but...

The Newcomers

? Spyro Reignited Trilogy
? Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker

The Contenders

11 Mario Tennis Aces

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

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

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

No, this is underhyped if anything, one of the best mario games on the switch so far - darthvadern

12 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

13 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

Forgot this game even existed - P8ge

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

14 A Way Out
15 Far Cry 5
16 Red Dead Redemption 2
17 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

18 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

19 Roblox Roblox



I think it’s a good game

20 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

21 Cyberpunk 2077
22 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

Why can't they make a racing lego game? , or a fighting lego game? , all the games are just stupid crappy open worlds that don't have features, For example all the bosses in lego games are so annoying and not hard at all - B1ueNew

23 Halo Infinite
24 WWE 2K19
BAdd New Item
