Top 10 Most Overrated First Person Shooters (FPS) Games

FPS games generally involving lots of shooting. Some of them are okay and some of them get really old. Not calling any of these games terrible. So please don't assume that. Just saying they get more attention than needed at all. Also I'm not a fan of FPS games so take this with a grain of salt.

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

As far as the post-Modern Warfare games are concerned, this one is the best of them in my opinion. Other than that, I seriously hate this series. - Mcgillacuddy

It's okay I don't really see the hype behind it. I get bored of it like in two minutes but that's for general FPS games. - CaptainMowzker

All of the Call of Duty Black Ops games are overrated. - PhoenixAura81

It plain sucks, I watched my friend play this once or twice, it's just so boring - darthvadern

2 Battlefield 4

It's certainly better than terrible cop drama Battlefield game that I forget the name of. But in general gets severely way too much hype and praise. - CaptainMowzker

I've loved this game because of the multiplayer mainly, but I agree that the campaign is a disappointment by all means. - Mcgillacuddy

Multiplayer is phenomenal, but campaign is meh. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Good game but yeah it's overrated.Also the cop game is Battlefield Hardline(I think)-DarkBoi-X

3 Halo 4

I think this is pretty overhated but eh. - CaptainMowzker

4 Destiny

While it has a huge fanbase I wouldn't say it's overrated because it gets way too much hate.-DarkBoi-X

5 BioShock Infinite

It completely ditches the concept of the first two games and the story at times felt absolutely ridiculous. Not the worst FPS game out there but does it really deserve all of it's hype? - CaptainMowzker

I just beat the remastered version of this was good but I enjoyed my time in Rapture more than Columbia. And why did they ditch the ability to save anytime?

6 Far Cry 5

Not really that overrated, compared to Far Cry 4 which is a lot more overrated. - CaptainMowzker

7 Halo 2

While generally being considered the best Halo game I kind of disagree. Sure it's playable and is fairly okay but I thought that 3 and 4 were a lot better unpopular opinion I know... - CaptainMowzker

8 Half Life 2

Gordon Freeman is not a real character


Gordon Freeman is not a real character - xandermartin98

The amount of praise it gets is kind of ridiculous. - CaptainMowzker


It's not underrated when it's praised as "One of the best FPS games ever." - CaptainMowzker

9 Titanfall
10 Half Life

It's not a terrible game but like HL2 it gets more attention and praise than needed. - CaptainMowzker

The Contenders

11 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
12 Borderlands 2

Phenomenal story and gameplay, But overrated - B1ueNew

13 GoldenEye 007

Might've been influential for the genre but it's still overrated to me. From the cartoony looking models, to the bland gameplay and subpar story. - CaptainMowzker

I don't think it's too bad of an N64 game perhaps it's one of the best video games of all time Although I haven't played it instead I watched it on YouTube which it doesn't bother me that the gameplay is too "outdated" and wonder what is the fanbase of this game like? - Kevinsidis

Oh my god guys stop begging for this game on the n64 classic, it's not going to happen, microsoft bought rare.

It has not aged well at all. But luckily, its not as cancerous as Call of Duty or Overwatch. - OnyxDash

14 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
15 Overwatch

Well, in my opinion, Overwatch is one of the best things in the entire universe! But, I respect your opinion. - saturatedsunrise

I still don't get why Overwatch is number 1 on best games of 2016 list. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Decent but gets more attention than needed in my book. - CaptainMowzker

16 Medal of Honor
17 Destiny 2
18 Star Wars: Battlefront (2015)

Overhated is more like it. - CaptainMowzker

19 Left 4 Dead 2
20 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
21 Metroid Prime
22 Call of Duty: WWII

Why is this better than black ops 3 again? - B1ueNew

23 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

More of a Battle royal so eh... - CaptainMowzker

24 Call of Duty: Black Ops

Gameplay's kind of repetitive and the online isn't much better considering how annoying the damn 12-10 year old squeakers are. - CaptainMowzker

25 Team Fortress 2

Again not necessarily terrible but gets way too much attention and hype... - CaptainMowzker

26 Fortnite

Come and watch my fortnite lets plays

More of a battle royal than a FPS so it doesn't count... - CaptainMowzker

Someone didn't read the full title... - SpectralOwl

Not a Fps at all - B1ueNew
