Most Overrated Nintendo Games of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Wii Sports

Is Wii sports overrated? Most people that owns a Wii has the game but I don't see people speaking good about it Wii sports resort was better

Ocarina of Time is NOT overrated.

NO NO NO DEAR GOD NO. NOO. This game was amazing and practically helped me get more into sport. I have the origanal version and the controls are perfect and my favorite is the boxing. Not overrated. AT ALL.

2 Super Mario Galaxy

I got all 121 stars with Mario and Spoiler Alert: Luigi.

3 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Nope, just because this game or any game is criticized does not mean that it's not overrated. I am a proud owner of not this game but most Nintendo consoles and I can see how overrated this game is. People always say that Ocarina of Time is the best game of all time but there is a lot that they hate about it too. Changing boots in the Water Temple, Navi, etc. It's a good game, don't get me wrong, but the fans need to realize that it's not the best game anymore.

I love the legend of zelda and all but this game gets too much credit. The series offers much more and greater games than this. Personally Majoras mask is the best game of all time.

Some people don't understand that this is the greatest game of all time!

In no way overrated. though not the best Zelda that would be Twilight Princess.

4 Earthbound

Too boring. I got to happy town or whatever after about 7 hours and the plot really didn't progress yet. It's not well made.

It doesn't matter what boss it has, that has nothing to do with being overrated. It is factually not overrated because it sold poorly.

Why does everybody like earthbound it's so boring - ikerevievs

It's a good game, but I personally prefer it's sequel, Mother 3.

5 Super Smash Bros. Melee

By far the most overrated game in the series. Can we PLEASE stop complaining about how Fox is no longer the top-tier character that you don't even have to try in order to be good with? Or how you can't wavedash or wave-shine anymore, for that matter? - xandermartin98

Ssbm is the most overrated game ever all the fans do is complain about the newer games - ikerevievs

How the hell is 64 higher than this?

Brawl is better but yet people keep.on making ludacris claims as to why this game is better when brawl is a bigger and better game than this game is - christangrant

6 Super Mario 64

This game isn't criticized nearly enough because it's Mario. But let's remember that not all highly acclaimed games aren't without flaws. Archaic camera control, the most basic and bland level designs, and let's not forget the N64 controller's clunky and stiff movements. Also, am I the only person who thinks this is the weakest performance of the Koopa king?

The ds verison was better it had more yoshi and mutiplayer - ikerevievs

7 Wii Play

I hate this game, controls are weak and unbalanced. Game ideas are stupid COME ON A POSE GAME?!?!? A POSE GAME COME ON Nintendo! EVEN HOTEL Mario WAS BETTER!

8 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
9 Super Smash Bros N64

It's the most underrated smash bros.

The original 12 stuff make it overrated - ikerevievs

10 Bayonetta 2

Why this should be overrated? - DaisyandRosalina

Why this should be overrated? Let's see...

It's just "Devil May Cry" with an overly-sexy Sarah Palin lookalike instead of Dante
The story makes no sense
Too many cutscenes
Repetitive boss fights
Annoying soundtrack
Characters that "boring" is the best thing you can say about them

The Contenders

11 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
12 Mario Kart Wii
13 Super Smash Bros. 4

Why the heck isn't this higher

Get this higher - VideoGamefan5

14 Mother 3
15 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This game honestly doesn't get enough attention, it's definitely not operated and is an outstanding game.

16 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
17 Star Fox 64

Dear Star Fox 64 elitists,
signed, the sane part of the fandom

This list is literally crap, yeah. That was my one reason to comment

18 Mario Kart 8
19 Yoshi's Woolly World
20 The Legend of Zelda

Nah. You just can't beat the game so you're mad at it.
