Most Overrated Video Game Franchises


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Assassin's Creed

This should be WAAY at top 10

"10/10 Would sweat again..."

Lewis Peart

This game is doesn't have any stealth mechanics and say himself *ASSassin*'s Creed
where is the assassin's I can't find it anywhere
i see only 1 guy with a cap and he is killing 1 billion people only himself.
and game mechanics are just same... all games are use same mechanics its really bad because technology is growed up but in this game only graphics can be growing up.
i need to say story is pretty good but this game is not a visual novel

42 Uncharted
43 Xenoblade
44 Crash Bandicoot

Pretty obscure nowadays - purpleyoshi98

45 The Last of Us

Amazing game but I wouldn't say that this is Naughty Dog's best work I don't know I just think that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is better. That is all. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Sony fanboys use this to defend their precious PS3/4 consoles from what they call "Xbots" and "WiiTards", but this was nothing special to me. - noo7na7

46 Borderlands
47 Ratchet & Clank
48 Super Meat Boy
49 Splatoon


50 Xeno
51 Street Fighter
52 Team Fortress
53 Mario Party

A Overhyped Cash Train - VideoGamefan5

God awful franchise, even call of duty is less overrated - VideoGamefan5

54 Fallout
55 Super Mario Bros.

Really I think these games get all the love they deserve

Um, yeah Mario games don't give a crap about story, so, yeah go on with your day, dinosaur.

Man, this franchise gets way too much defense from Nintendo fans. This game franchise does little to add variety, and while sticking with something that really works is nice and all, it can get boring when you stay with the same formula with almost no effort to change things up. Well sure Mario Galaxy added something fresh and exciting, but Galaxy 2 did almost nothing to bring something fresh and exciting.

The only thing that's overrated is "Rosalina steals Daisy's spot." "Rosalina is a peach clone" "Daisy is ugly" "Daisy is a waste of a character slot."

56 Animal Crossing

This should be top 1! Seriously, I don't know how it's played!

57 Tetris

Tetris is one game, not a franchise... - noo7na7

No one plays it really, nor praises it :p

It was good at it's time

58 PacMan

The only overrated Pac-Man games are the Pac-Man World games for the GBA (because of how they are edited compared to their home console versions), Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures duology (because of the Modern Pac-Man/Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures fanbase), Pac-Man Party (because it's a Modern Pac-Man clone of Mario Party) and the Pac-Attack demake. I do not like these games. Pac-Man (before his 30th anniversary/before the fourth decade of its existence) is severely underrated.

59 Gran Turismo
60 Metroid
