Most Overhyped Video Games of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Undertale Undertale

To be honest I don't get why half these games are on this list to begin with

Their's many better video game things out there, why is this so hype?

The game shows that even everything doesn't need be solved with violence - Retarded_Goat_Teen

Uh huh - Not_A_Weeaboo

2 Destiny

My favorite Xbox game I still haven't finished kings fall - BulgingBubble

IĀ've been playing since year 1 and 1/2, and just quite Destiny 2 (pretty much) a few weeks or so ago. to be completely honest, despite being a fan, it is most definitely overhyped. why? well, the main reason is itĀ's lack of actual content. iron banner, the dawning, and that crimson days event only brings people in for a week or 2 before they leave. games like Fortnite, Paladins, Overwatch, and Call of Duty are really doing way better, and several streamers are leaving and most likely moving to Fortnite. it is really sad for any hardcore fan to see the playerbase count drop, but it is just not what it once was.

3 Halo 4

ninja

4 Minecraft
5 No Man's Sky

I believe this game was too overhyped to begin with. However, it's getting better now that they are adding what they've promised through new and better updates.

6 Five Nights at Freddy's
7 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
8 Watch Dogs
9 Portal 2
10 Mighty No. 9

The Contenders

11 Star Wars: Battlefront (2015)
12 Call of Duty: Ghosts
13 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
14 Overwatch
15 Super Smash Bros Melee

Despite being absolutely worshipped by the fanbase, it's a rather weak installment of the series-Smash didn't truly kick off until Brawl. Third out of all the games, only beating 64 and counting 3DS/Wii U as one game-will likely fall to fourth after Ultimate's release.

16 Dragon Ball Xenoverse
17 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
18 Call of Duty: Black Ops III
19 Resident Evil 6
20 Grand Theft Auto V

Yeah but is a wonderful game

21 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
22 Assassin's Creed Unity
23 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

'Revolutionary'? You know that the past two games in the series had everything that makes Skyrim 'revolutionary', and did it better? Skyrim is extremely 'overhyped'. - Aeterna

24 Cave Story

Is it just me or was this game literally programmed with the perfect recipe to be as overrated as humanly possible?

Ingredients:

Cute, cuddly, stupidly adorable widdle bunnie wunnies - CHECK!
Ridiculously cute characters in general - CHECK!
Nostalgic retro style - CHECK!
Decently written storyline with shock value laden plot twists to make it seem considerably deeper and smarter than it actually is in reality - CHECK!
Made by one guy and distributed for free, gathering endless amounts of sympathy from the players - CHECK!
Character shaped like SpongeBob - CHECK!
Canon shipping between the main character duo - CHECK!
Badass soundtrack that hugely enhances the otherwise rather mediocre gameplay to make it seem better and more enjoyable than it actually is - CHECKAROO!

This is a great game and all, but seriously, Jesus Christ. - xandermartin98

25 Metroid: Other M
26 Star Wars Battlefront 2

Hey guys do you remember the game we made in 2015 star wars battlefront and how it was very short of things to do how about we create a new one and make it a full game but hide that full game until the players pay us ridiculous amounts of money - TheGamingLad

This is the most overhyped game of all time it wasn't just bad you also only got half of the game when you bought it

27 EarthBound

It's a good JRPG, though I agree with you.

28 Paper Mario: Color Splash
29 The Last of Us
30 Super Smash Bros. 4
31 Mario Kart Wii
32 New Super Mario Bros DS
33 Xenoblade Chronicles
34 Super Metroid

At least its Brinstar music lived up to the hype - xandermartin98

35 Daikatana
36 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Same as all of them. Mashups of computer game characters trying to kill each other!

37 Portal
38 Final Fantasy VII
39 Mother 3
40 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
41 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
42 Splatoon
43 Metroid Fusion
44 Half-Life 2
45 Mega Man X8
46 Bubsy
47 L.A. Noire
48 Call of Duty: Black Ops
49 Shovel Knight
50 Super Mario Galaxy
