Top Ten Most Overrated Sega Franchises
The Top Ten
I like Sonic, but it's overrated as heck! Any Sega franchise that isn't Sonic usually never gets any attention or love they should be getting, Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS, Panzer Dragoon, etc. - TheDelBel
Absolute garbage. - iliekpiez
I can't express how terribly overrated this franchise is. Okay, the first couple of games are pretty good, I'll give them that. And Sonic Heroes is decent. But Miyamoto have mercy, every time Sega tries to make me connect with these flat, one-dimensional characters, or take the dumbest, most boring villain of all time seriously, or have fun with gameplay that ranged from broken to stiff and boring, or listen to another brooding, angsty monologue from the "complex" and "tortured" Shadow the Hedgehog, I want to beat myself in the head with a Sega Genesis until I'm coughing up gold rings. Plus, a lot of Sonic fans are hostile to anyone who doesn't like the games. I can put up with the fandom's horrific, freakishly fetish-filled fanart if they weren't so closed-minded about it, refusing to acknowledge that the Sonic franchise has ANY problems. I'm not saying that anyone who likes Sonic is a weirdo, but I personally don't like it, nor do I see why anyone would. - Phenenas
Do not listen to Nateawfulness, he is just jealous. Your comment is excellent. We must never have to like the one-dimensional characters from Chris Thorndyke to the original Team Rose to some Archie Sonic characters to especially Princess Elise II. Shadow the Hedgehog was certainly not as great as he used to be in the Dreamcast Era at all, despite having the same epic powers. I actually have a mixed opinion towards the Sonic franchise. The original/main Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy was phenomenal, especially Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (& Knuckles). And the main Sonic games for the SEGA Dreamcast are overall decent, yup. There is a reason why Modern Sonic the Hedgehog is top 1, but classic Super Monkey Ball is too underrated for words like Pac-Man (before its 30th Anniversary). - The Ultimate Daredevil to Phenenas
Did not deserve that much attention - iliekpiez
Never thought this game was that good.
The soundtrack was the only thing I liked.
Jet Set Radio isn't even remotely overrated. It's VERY underrated, and I wish it would get more love. - TheDelBel
Excuse me? How is this franchise overrated? There's only 3 games in the entire franchise, and not many people know about it. - nintendofan126
How's this overrated, I didn't know it existed til now. - Skullkid755
Wha wha people hate this series? It only had 2 games and there great - spodermanfan1000
THE ORIGINAL NIGHTS INTO DREAMS IS MUCH BETTER THAN NIGHTS: JOURNEY INTO DREAMS AND YOU KNOW IT! >8(
How did these games get famous enough to have a T.V. series and a comic series?!
Deserves 100% of the praise - iliekpiez
The Yakuza Series should be in top 5 respectively!.. Vote if you agree
Pretty much. For me, it would be either #2 or #3 next to Sonic and (probably) Bayonetta. - TheDelBel
