Top 10 Most Overrated Indie Games


The Top Ten

1 Minecraft

Oh please. This game is drastically overhated, not vice versa

This game is actually a tiny bit fun for five minutes - purpleyoshi98

Do I REALLY need to explain? - shawnmccaul22

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

2 Cuphead

Now getting a Mii outfit and song in Smash Ultimate. I hate the world.

I Hate cuphead so mush

Should be 1 for all it wanted to steal the spotlight. - sonicsonic039

This Fandom hurt the the old school completely - warclanw

3 Five Nights At Freddy's

The start of the Autistic Fanbases...

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.

4 Undertale

Didn't deserve *any* presence in Smash Ultimate, not even the Mii outfit and song it got!

Still Better then Cuphead and BATIM - sonicsonic039

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

5 Cave Story

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

6 Guacamelee!

Rotten game, really don't see what the fuss is about. Dust: An Elysian Tail is a far better game in the genre.

7 Roblox

Roblox isn't an indie game...

This is Indie? - shawnmccaul22

8 Flappy Bird
9 Slender

This game is not scary it's just asses like Pewdiepie and Markiplier overreacting for money.

10 The Binding of Isaac

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.

The Contenders

11 Life is Strange

That's no indie game

12 Shovel Knight

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

13 Bendy and the Ink Machine
14 Terraria

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. - Extractinator04

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?

15 Super Meat Boy

As much as I love this game, it IS overrated!

16 Happy Wheels
17 Rogue Legacy
18 Hotline Miami
19 Hotline Miami 2
20 Temple Run
21 Fortnite

...this was an indie?

Why is this not number one it is overrated to the max I cannot have a conversation without it being mentioned

22 I Wanna Be The Guy
23 Clash of Clans

This isn't an indie game.

24 Steamworld Dig
25 Braid
26 Yandere Simulator
27 Broforce
28 Axiom Verge

Not even a metroidvania but rather an uninspired and badly designed metroid clone
