What is overrated is the 4x4 Eyes they put on Minecraft skins

You know I thought the first game was alright, despite the very basic game play as well as interesting difficulty. How ever once it got turned into a full blown series did all the little respect earned disappear. Sequels were rushed out far to quickly and reduced some gameplay features rather then add to it. Oh yeah and the animatronics were not really scary, in fact they looked pretty stupid.
At first I thought it was a unique spin on the horror genre until the fanbase and repetitive milking told me otherwise.
I really hate this game. What's so good about staying five nights at a pizza place and checking the cameras? It's not even scary and I see it everywhere.
This game is so obviously bad. Pretty sure it was made for babies and people with autismV 6 Comments
Lets face games like this can become overrated and points are made here. Though frankly that's on its fanbase. But unlike Five Night's at Freddy's fanbase which seems to think the games are good, Undertale is a good game which gave fans every reason to happy with it
Personally, as crazy as the fanbase can be, I sincerely believe that this game's critical reception was well-deserved (well, aside from it taking over the entire Internet and getting perfect 10/10 review scores from both Zero Punctation AND Jim Sterling, that is.) - xandermartin98
The fandom bad or good is irrelevant here. Although it does get on my nerves when people go "Goat mom is best mom" or "Undertale is a Masterpiece of a game" when to be honest, the game is quite shallow and easy if you play it right (In other words Pacifist route) Which brings me to the other point. How Preachy the narrative is (Like let's be friends with everybody) and tries too hard to deconstruct the JRPG trope which is grinding While following the tired Indie Horror game trope another one called "eversion" defines at the very beginning. The characters are also pretty annoying and it's too easy to justify the Genocide route of the game sense the random encounter system and also the Monsters are trying to kill you still makes the message fall flat on it's face.
People think Undertale is such a sacred cow, Enough to give it to the Pope in hopes to change the world. I know the Pope receives all sorts of gifts. But god damn, that moment is when I ...more
A bad copy of a rather mediocre RPG: Mother/ EarthboundV 11 Comments
As much as I adore this game, here are four reasons why it is ridiculously overrated:
1. It is an indie game.
2. It is arguably more fetch quest than game.
3. The hard mode sucks.
4. What would it have really been without its cute, cuddly, adorable little bunnies? - xandermartin98
Overrated? Yeah right... it's the most underrated indie to be honest. - VeryPissedOffCinnabon
I like it, but I don't see anything too special on it.
This game is one of the best I have played
No its not... Undertale is WAAYYY more overrated then this masterpiece - PistolTiger
This game is not scary it's just asses like Pewdiepie and Markiplier overreacting for money.
Rotten game, really don't see what the fuss is about. Dust: An Elysian Tail is a far better game in the genre.
From the floaty controls to the lacking visuals, environments, progression and depth it's not a bad game but far from great by my standards.
That's no indie game
Roblox isn't an indie game...
This is Indie? - shawnmccaul22
Definitely underrated. The whole reason this is on here is because some 5 years old kid is mad that Terraria "copied" Minecraft.
Nah it is UNDERRATED and better than Minecraft when you get used to it.3. - PugLlama
How is Terraria overrated?
It IS overrated, though it is still one of my favorite games. Every time there is a Terraria vs. Minecraft video, the fanbases duke it out. I'm only giving Minecraft the pass because it's mainly kids involved in those fanbase wars. Terraria, on the other hand, has ADULTS complaining against children about which is better. - Extractinator04V 1 Comment
For everything I love about this game, there's at least one other thing that I can't stand about it. For example:
1. The game is trying WAY too hard to invoke that retro 8-bit feel. If you thought that Cave Story felt a bit stuck-in-the-past at times, you've seen nothing.
2. Extremely cheap and unfair level design at several points.
3. The goddamned boss rush on Second Quest mode.
4. The game is slightly too short for a lot of various reasons.
5. Generally unbalanced difficulty curve.
6. Incredibly easy final boss.
7. Far too much borrowing from classic NES games like Megaman and Ducktales, to the point where hardly anything ever feels original. It makes Cave Story's similarities to Metroid look subtle by comparison.
I could go on, but we'll be here all night if I do. - xandermartin98
As much as I love this game, it IS overrated!
