Most Overrated Gaming Franchises

The Top Ten

1 Minecraft

This game isn't nearly as great as people say it is. The game is pretty boring. All you do is build.

Couldn't agree more. All you do is build. - DCfnaf

2 Madden

If you have one game you have them all - Randomator

It's...the same...thing...every...time. - DCfnaf

3 Undertale

A good game, but it's become the new FNaF in a sense. - DCfnaf

Aka the new FNAF - Randomator

4 Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

This series has just evolved into a mess. - Randomator

5 Five Nights at Freddy's

Seriously what's the appeal? - Randomator

Despite my username...yeah, this is overrated. - DCfnaf

6 Angry Birds

Yeah, every game is basically the same thing over and over. - DCfnaf

Way too many sequels, a movie and now damn theme parks - Randomator

7 Splatoon

Isn't the second game just the first one but it's the second game? - DCfnaf

Splatoon 2? More like Splatoon 1.5 - Randomator

8 Legend of Zelda

Amazing franchise, but overrated only because they give every game here a 10/10 - DCfnaf


Same as Madden. - DCfnaf

10 Sonic Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Uh...this is overHATED. Usually gets hate by Mario fans and just typical people of the internet who think Sonic is not a good series. We have Unleashed, Colors, Generations, Lost World, and the upcoming Mania and Forces, and this is a bad series...why? - DCfnaf

Sonic is not hated on by Mario fans, it's the other way around.

More overrated than porn

The Contenders

11 Call of Duty


You are the first person to not call Call of Duty overrated, Randomator. I'm surprised lol - DCfnaf

12 Metroid

Several of Super Metroid's ROM hacks outmatch the original game in a number of ways

The Metroid Prime Trilogy is overlong and tedious

Zero Mission is just plain too easy

Fusion is just plain too scripted

et cetera - xandermartin98

13 NBA 2K

See madden - Randomator

14 Fortnite
15 Wario Ware

Or anything with Wario really

Um...these barely come out and they aren't very popular. That doesn't really classify as "overrated". - DCfnaf

16 Roblox

Roblox is far more overrated than Minecraft

If Roblox is far more overrated than Minecraft then why do I keep hearing that Roblox sucks? - 50

17 Battlefield

All these games get ridiculous scores by IGN - B1ueNew

18 Earthbound
19 Super Mario Bros.
