Top 10 Most Overrated Nintendo 64 Games

Garfieldtop10s
The game makers are not blamed for making games overrated, it's the fanboys who do.

The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

You know, almost all Nintendo 64 games could be considered overrated. People say they're the best because that's what they grew up with. Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are both great games, but they are NOT the best games of all time. Neither is Goldeneye or Banjo-Kazooie. Sure some games are better than others, but at the end of the day, it's all opinion based. Just because a lot of people like a game and you don't doesn't mean you have to like it. Ocarina of Time may be my favorite Zelda game, but it's only because it's the only one I beat. And it is not my favorite game of all time, that goes to Super Mario Bros 3 because that is what made me get into video games in the first place. A game being overrated does not mean it is bad or good, it just means that people like to talk about it a lot, positively or negatively, and it becomes annoying.

Garbage

Hey, I am entitled to my own opinion, just because I don't like Zelda doesn't mean you have to kill me. And I am a Nintendo fan, but I see this game SO much it annoys me and it can't be anywhere but #1. - Garfieldtop10s

Mario Kart is awesome and you Zelda fans should respect his opinion. - DaisyandRosalina

This needs to be top 1. Seriously, people think this game is the best N64 game ever. So why does Mario Kart 64 have to be top 1?! Only 4/5 of people like this game. At least all N64 games are perfect.

2 GoldenEye 007

Oh my gosh this game. So frustrating in single player, over-competitive in multiplayer, extremely poor graphics when they could have taken advantage, and weird controls. - Garfieldtop10s

Horrible controls, just as most of the FPS games released on console systems back then. To call it one of the best N64 games speaks very bad of the system itself.

This game had some stupid ai and bad controls

This game is worse than the wii version.

3 Mario Kart 64

Here is how I would rate these N64 games.

Mario Kart 64 gets a 97/100 score.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time gets an 81/100 score.

Super Mario 64 gets a 100+/100 score.

Mario Party gets a 79/100 score.

Mario Tennis gets an 82/100.

Goldeneye 007 gets a 78/100 score.

Diddy Kong Racing gets an 86/100 score.

Mario Golf gets a 77/100 score.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask gets an 84/100 score.

Paper Mario gets a 78/100 score.

Mario Party 3 gets a 72/100 score.

Conker's Bad Fur Day gets a 65/100 score.

Perfect Dark gets a 77/100 score.

Banjo-Kazooie gets an 82/100 score.

Banjo Tooie gets an 80/100 score.

Gauntlet Legends gets a 67/100 score.

Mega Man Legends gets a 34/100 score.

Mega Man Legends 2 gets a 39/100 score.

The game just handled really badly. I much preferred Diddy Kong Racing over this one!

THis game is overrated Double dash is better

This game gets repetitive once you finish 50cc. And people only like it for: toads turnpike, wario stadium, royal raceway, yoshi valley, and rainbow road. I also personally enjoyed Mario raceway, Choco mountain, banshee boardwalk, and kalimari desert. - Garfieldtop10s

4 Super Mario 64

This game is underrated as heck! More than 1 person gives this game a 0/100 (but very little people pan this game that much score), and I think the game's aggregate score is a 9.5. I would give this game 100+/100 score.

You have got to be kidding. Back then, it was a masterpiece but people still treat it as the best game ever even though there is more new and great stuff. So it's got to be overrated, but why underrated?

This game is hard, sure, but it is amazing, and a great game for what they did as the first 3d mario game!

This game is extremely infuriating and difficult. But it is worthy of the SMW sequel. Just overrated, and it gets boring. (Spoilers: the top 3 will most likely make you mad and want to hate me. This is my opinion. So if you don't agree leave your own top 10 overrated n64 games response. Thank you. ) - Garfieldtop10s

People shove this game down my throat it seems like! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Mario Party

Even Mario Party 8 was better

In my opinion mp2 improved upon this game, so it's pointless to play this one unless it's the only one you have. Then it's ok. - Garfieldtop10s

6 Mario Tennis

Just like Mario golf excluding the bonus modes. - Garfieldtop10s

Worse than ultra smash

7 Diddy Kong Racing

I really think this game is inferior to Mario kart 64. I don't like the missions, and I don't like the difficulty. - Garfieldtop10s

I did not like this game. It was like Mario kart but stupider and it was so competitive towards the end. I don't know why this game was so fun to so many people

8 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

You guys are haters.

OVErrated

Now wait. Before the hate comment, listen. The timer is stupid and pointless and takes away from the gameplay. And like all Zelda games (except wind waker), you don't know what to do unless you watch a tutorial. - Garfieldtop10s

9 Mario Golf

It's just normal golf with Mario characters thrown in. Need I say any more? - Garfieldtop10s

You are right.

10 Star Fox 64

The 64 elitists won't shut up about this one. We get it already. You're too close minded to play the other games in the series because every entry in the franchise is different when they should all be the same.
I've got three words for you guys...
GET
OVER
IT!

Barrel roll jokes need to die. They weren't funny in 1997 and they're not funny now.

The GameCube games in the series are criminally underrated.

Zero and Assault were better

The Contenders

11 Paper Mario

That's the sticker star cover, jackass

This Isn't Even A Nintendo 64 Game. Are You An Idiot?

This Game Is Not Overrated. Everyone Hated It.

It is the one on the n64, not sticker star.

12 Banjo-Kazooie

Not a bad game, but I think the plot is a little overused (subject a is stolen by subject B. subject c must rescue subject a) and it can get boring at times. - Garfieldtop10s

An AVERAGE PLATFORMER

13 Conker's Bad Fur Day

I legitimately like the humor in this game. Not that it's always funny, but that it's shocking to see this stuff in a Nintendo game. I would recommend someone watch the cutscenes and such. What I cannot recommend is playing this game. This game is beyond tedious to play, and the controls are unresponsive and stiff throughout. Some parts are genius designs or ideas, but it's just brought down by how low this game's low points are.

This game is crude, disgusting, and has bad language. Why do 13 year olds like it so much? - Garfieldtop10s

Then why do 8 year olds worship Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto - ikerevievs

This game is fantastic. A pure classic.

Wow! This Is Possibly One Of The Most Disgusting Nintendo 64 Games Of All Time. I Mean, I've Never Played It Before, But Even Just By Looking A The Title Of This Game I'm Not Sure If I Want Too.
