Top 10 Most Overrated Third Installments of Video Game Series (And Sub-Series)

Feel free to leave all of the obvious scapegoats here.

The Top Ten

1 Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario 64 and Sunshine just had so much more going for them overall when it came to being actual games, Galaxy's spectacular graphics and (occasionally) breathtakingly orchestrated and epic soundtrack notwithstanding - xandermartin98

Yep absolutely, I felt it was much easier compared to the past two installments. - htoutlaws2012

2 Super Metroid

I really love you, Super Metroid, you're probably THE single most memorable video game of all time, and I'm going to let you finish for the 17 bazillionth time...

but honestly, Fusion, Zero Mission and especially the Metroid 2 remakes (AM2R and Samus Returns) were EASILY just as good of a game as you were, without even mentioning the Prime trilogy (face it, fanboys; Prime 2 is also just about as good as the first Prime) - xandermartin98

3 Mother 3

Again, a much better (and also darker) game than Earthbound, but not by nearly as much as people claim - xandermartin98

4 Final Fantasy III (USA Version of Final Fantasy VI)

Still way better than Final Fantasy VII and Chrono Trigger overall, but definitely not by THAT much (as in the amount that people claim it to be) - xandermartin98

5 Halo 3

At least it isn't Destiny (admit it, HT, that game was largely Bungie's fault and you know it) - xandermartin98

Well... Destiny was just an utter disappointment just by the way it played compared to this classic. - htoutlaws2012

6 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Not overrated, this game is a masterpiece.

10/10, best game, BEST GAME

Basically the Breath Of The Wild of Witcher - xandermartin98

7 Fallout 3

Better than Fallout 4

That's pretty much the only thing worth saying about it - xandermartin98

8 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Sorry, but "best of the Mario & Luigi games" is NOT the same thing as "best Mario RPG period"; if anything, THAT would have to be either Super Mario RPG or the original Paper Mario (Thousand-Year Door is extremely high up there too)

That, and this game is also HORRIBLY unbalanced in terms of its overall difficulty level; don't believe me? Just try using the Challenge Badge during the Energy Hold segment in the Tower Of Yikk - xandermartin98

9 Super Mario Bros. 3
10 Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Great single-player campaign but not quite as good overall as Going Commando's, which it COMPLETELY overshadows - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
12 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The best SSB in my opinion - Not_A_Weeaboo

13 Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

Speaking in terms of their N-Sane trilogy remakes, I honestly think Crash 2 is a better game overall than this was (hell, even Crash 1 was) - xandermartin98

14 Mega Man 3 Mega Man 3
15 Saints Row: The Third

Horrible in my opinion, compared to the others at least - EliHbk

16 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
17 Dark Souls 3
18 Grand Theft Auto III
19 Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony
20 God of War 3
21 Sonic 3 & Knuckles
22 Sonic CD
23 XenoBlade Chronicles
24 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
25 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
26 Wario Land 3
27 Super Paper Mario
28 Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
29 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

What best game ever - Legolego

30 Rock Band 3
31 Dark Souls II

what? - EliHbk

If you count the original Demon's Souls as the first Dark Souls game, then this is the third - xandermartin98

32 BioShock Infinite
33 Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse
34 F-Zero GX
35 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
