Top Ten Most Oversaturated Video Game Franchises

This list contains video game franchises that get way more than they deserve.

The Top Ten

1 Minecraft

Ever since Notch left... quality control slumped - Maddox121

Bang it. - TriggerTrashKid

The game is actually really fun to play, until you have to deal with the fanbase. If you say one thing you don't like about Minecraft, they will say, "HOW DARE U SAY THAT MINECRAFT IS THE BEST GAME EVER! ", it's just rude. Everything is not perfect and everything has their flaws. Minecraft is a good game, but its does not mean it's perfect. - MissRWBY202

Game for creativity and survival, this game is severely over liked. - MrCoolC

2 Fortnite

There is only one game that's multiplatform how is this oversaturated? - Tyoshi

How is this oversaturated exactly? , it's only one game with 2 modes with 1 is a campaign and the other is co-op battle royale, it doesn't have any merchandise except online they have shirts, - B1ueNew

Most overrated game - Dvafan2

Overrated trash - Dvafan2

3 Call of Duty

I like this franchise. - TriggerTrashKid

I haven't played much of it but from what I have heard this game used to be good until Black Ops 3 and now Infinite Warfare got horrible ratings while Call of Duty:WW2 got mixed ratings.-DarkBoi-X

This series gets a lot of hate on here. While I don't hate it COMPLETELY, it's still pretty much the same game over and over again. Infinite Warfare was an exception. - DCfnaf

I used to love Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops but eventually I grew tired of the game. Although Call of Duty WWII has my eye on it. - cjWriter1997

4 Madden

At least Call of Duty is different in some ways. - Tyoshi

There's "mad" in the title. - TriggerTrashKid

Thank god it's not popular in my country, I can't say the same for FIFA though. - DaisyandRosalina

All sports games should be at the top honestly. - cjWriter1997

Even after EA switched to the amazing Battlefield engine, it still has bugs that haunted the series for decades, and EA never bothers to iron them out. - Dominicmgm

See Madden. - DCfnaf

6 Five Nights at Freddy's

This franchise is dead - ElSherlock

4 games in one year - Dvafan2

Obviously it's oversaturated, every game is pretty much the exact same thing. The first game was good and had the creative aspect, but 2, 3, and 4 just repeated the same formula three more times. FNaF World was a joke. Sister Location was the only sequel to actually be halfway decent. This also got loads of atrocious-looking merchandise and it got a book series as well as an upcoming movie. However, I can't hate this franchise because the developer is such a great person and I legitimately liked the first game and Sister Location. - DCfnaf

I honestly think this has been way more oversaturated. Most other games are either never really spoken about near me or are facebook games, and since I don't use facebook... well... - mattstat716

7 Bendy and the Ink Machine

Yes, the fandom is terrible, but if you actually SEE the insanely huge amount of hate it gets on here, you might have to see the game itself. - IceFoxPlayz

Overhated. - TriggerTrashKid

How is this oversturated? It only has 2 games and a few ports. - Tyoshi

8 Angry Birds

I like it. - TriggerTrashKid

I liked the first game, but I think we all agree that this didn't deserve to become this incredibly popular and well-known franchise. They made 13 sequels of this that are all essentially the exact same game as the first and were all forgettable. Also, why did this franchise get tons of physical games, a movie, and THEME PARK ATTRACTIONS? It's not THAT amazing guys! - DCfnaf

Hey! Now colossus exists at Thorpe park that is an amazing ride.

I liked the original game but they ruined it by making Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Transformers and even more crappy angry birds games! What's next, Angry Birds: The Last Airbender? Eh, at least the Stella game was good. - TwilightKitsune

I guess Angry Birds was THAT addicting if it even got its own theme park. - EpicJake

9 Cuphead Cuphead

Worst cuphead fandom out their! - sonicsonic039

2017 is the worst years because of this! - sonicsonic039

How the f is Cuphead oversaturated there is only one game on Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Mac - Tyoshi

How is this overstatuated?

10 Candy Crush

Like Flappy Bird, I can't stand that this got immensely popular despite being the least creative game ever. It's a ripoff of Bejeweled (a game that is way better), the micro-transactions are dumb, and the insane number of levels is ridiculous. There are also so many spinoffs and ripoffs of this like Cookie Jam and Candy Crush Soda Saga which also take your money. - DCfnaf

It’s just so basic, - PackFan2005

Guess what? It got a GAME SHOW. I watched the first episode and it sucked. They basically played the same game except added something that forces you to use your muscles. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I don't understand what's so good about this game. I mean, there have been MUCH better games. In fact, almost every game I've played is better than Candy Crush. - EpicJake

The Contenders

11 Grand Theft Auto

There is only like 9 over I think 20 years so is this over saturated? - Tyoshi

Grand Theft Auto sucks. - TriggerTrashKid

More like "Overhyped Crime Simulator made just so it could garner controversy" because that sums up this series in a nutshell
Rockstar needs to stop making games for this series. Grand Theft Auto is the Family Guy of video games. - PerfectImpulseX

12 Just Dance

To me, the only good thing to come out in later installments of the Just Dance franchise is motivating people to exercise by dancing. Otherwise, it's the same rehashed formula every year! All they do in every installment of Just Dance is get the latest songs put into the game to dance to! It's nothing special, really. But what pains me the most is how it ALWAYS steals the award for best video game of the year at the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards. It makes me wonder if Ubisoft only continues to make these Just Dance games solely to keep earning those orange blimps annually. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Just as bad as Madden - Randomator

13 Flappy Bird Flappy Bird

I cannot STAND Flappy Bird! It is easily one of the worst games of all time and it only got popular because Pewdiepie played the game! There are so many stolen assets from the Mario games, the hit detection is anger-inducing, and it legitimately makes people insane if they don't constantly play it. Why is it on the list? All of the stupid spinoff games like Trump Dump make it cancerous. - DCfnaf

I'll admit I found it addictive back in the day, though I cannot deny that it's pretty terrible. It did not deserve to become this popular; it should have just been left in obscurity like with Dong Nguyen's other games.

In flappy Bird, you do nothing but tap to jump on the piles... This got so many clones. Both this game and the clones suck. - Fullwalking2

Didn't Flappy Bird get removed from the App store? - EpicJake

It actually was removed on February 9, 2014, shortly after the game became a phenomenon. - allamassal

14 Clash of Clans

Clash of Clans, Clash of Kings, Clash Royale, this series just won't die. Please get rid of it, it's just another cash cow series that relies on micro transactions to steal your money. - DCfnaf

Clash of Clans isn't very good to be honest. And don't even get me started on how much Clash Royale is overrated. - EpicJake

Someone finally agrees with me. I've been thinking Clash Royale is overrated ever since it came out. - TheReviewer20

Clash of Clans was decent at first but after awhile I got bored with it and then Clash Royale came out and it went downhill - Randomator

Pretty much any mobile video game that takes off is oversaturated - NuMetalManiak

15 NBA 2K

Overrated - B1ueNew

It’s somehow lower than a game which isn’t a franchise. - MrCoolC

My stupid friends are all in this series now. It's irritating & forceing me to get a PS4 just for 2k17! Thankfully, I got the switch, so I can play 2K18. Yay...

See madden - Randomator

16 Doki Doki Literature Club!
17 Assassin's Creed

No. - TriggerTrashKid

18 Mass Effect

No. - TriggerTrashKid

19 Overwatch

One game: One franchise. Wow. - TriggerTrashKid

20 Battlefield

Battlefield 1 is super good. - TriggerTrashKid

People be like "call of duty sucks for being an fps, yet they praise this trash" - B1ueNew

21 Skylanders

Skylanders is terrible. It's so stupid. The only people who play these cash cow "games" are 6-12 year old nerds. - Frodomar49

6? 6? 6?! Their are 6 games in this series! More so than transformers!

It is not popular anymore

This is basically the Transformers of the video game world. I used to be obsessed with this series, but I'm never buying another one of these. They release these games YEARLY and completionists end up buying EVERY single skylander! - DCfnaf

22 Undertale

Love all the characters

oversaturate: to saturate to an excessive degree
sarurate:supply (a market) beyond the point at which the demand for a product is satisfied.
how is this oversaturated - Tyoshi

23 Halo

MCC was broken - TriggerTrashKid

24 Lego

Up next is Call of Lego: Brick Ops - TriggerTrashKid

This franchise Sucks and they release the same game but with different pop culture characters every time, Like we got Lego Marvel, Lego Star Wars Lego batman and even Lego Incredibles!, what's next? , Lego Fortnite game? - B1ueNew

25 Puzzle Saga
26 Roblox Roblox
27 Club Penguin

It's dead now...except for that new Club Penguin 3D Island Game or whatever. - DCfnaf

28 Mario Tennis
29 Sonic the Hedgehog

Worst franchise ever

Honestly I think that this isn't too oversaturated. For the last three years we have not got one and this year we're getting two games that look really promising to me, especially Sonic Forces. Maybe I'm just saying this because I really love Sonic, but I'm not sure. - DCfnaf

Sonic is awesome! Who added him to the list?

Great franchise, horrible fanbase

30 The Walking Dead

No. - TriggerTrashKid

NO, I barely hear about this.
Maybe I’m a little biased because Season 2 is my favorite video game of all time, but eh, whatever,

31 Super Mario Bros.

It was something unique. But now it's just Nintendo's way of making money. - TriggerTrashKid

At least it revolutionized gaming - Tyoshi

The franchise is already getting stale. Every "new" Super Mario Bros is either based on SM64 or the original sidescrolling one. And even if Nintendo spices things up, people will dislike it for changing the formula - YourWaifuSucks

Honestly, "Super Mario Odyssey" is bursting with creativity so let's just see what happens. - DCfnaf

32 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

Let's Go shouldn't have been made, I want Generation 8 already!

Just another excuse for Genwunner pandering - KalloFox34

Just watch let's go trailer it really shows - Dvafan2

Pokemon Go ruined it - Randomator

GO GO GO - TriggerTrashKid

33 Rabbids

Now these aholes are in For Honor. - TriggerTrashKid

So these guys get a crossover RPG with Mario but not Sonic. Come on think of the possibilities of a Mario and Sonic crossover RPG. But nope we get left with Rabbids and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. - cjWriter1997

They even had their own show on Nickelodeon, and are getting a crossover game with Mario (no, really)

The leaked images of the crossover made me realize, what ha Ubisoft come to?

34 Super Smash Bros.

SSBU is overrated. - TriggerTrashKid

Seriously did you watched the Smash 4 developement? Every new character got a trailer and tons of screaming fans, they wanted to make this game like the game of god in this way, way that increased the hype like crazy but at the end it was just like the others. - DaisyandRosalina

There's only 3 to 4 games and everyone likes it. - mattstat716

35 The Legend of Zelda

I meant all zelda games but this one popped up first

BotW was fine. - TriggerTrashKid

36 Crossy Road

Not bad - ElSherlock

This is good. - TriggerTrashKid

If you hate this then play Disney Crossy Road instead. It is 1,000x better. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

37 Destiny

Destiny 2 is good. - TriggerTrashKid

See halo. - Fullwalking2

38 Guitar Hero

8 game in one year no joke
Guitar Hero 5 (2009)
Guitar Hero: Smash Hits (2009)
Band Hero (2009)
Guitar Hero: Metallica (2009)
Guitar Hero: Van Halen (2009)
Guitar Hero III Backstage Pass (2009)
Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits (2009)
Guitar Hero Arcade (2009) - Tyoshi

Why not just use a real guitar?

39 Mario Party

I remember first getting into this spin-off series back when me and my sister would watch these Mario Party 9 videos by AnimeBroMii (whom, I really am not into anymore). Both of us thought it was the greatest game we could ever play. We were practically begging our dad to buy it, though we had to exchange it with our New Super Mario Bros. Wii game (man, I should have never traded in that game! ). I loved playing it a lot when I first got it. But nowadays, Mario Party 9 is mediocre to me. Though, compared to Mario Party 10, it's better by a significant margin. You'd think with 10 installments already that they'd at least put it to rest and try to think up something else original and innovative. While I got to appreciate their attempts to keep the Mario Party franchise alive, I think it's safe to say it's outstayed its welcome for far too long. Sure, graphics are much more smoothly rendered with each newer installment, but it seems to me they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Same thing every year - VideoGamefan5

40 Star Wars Battlefront
41 Sonic Boom
42 The Wolf Among Us

This game is awesome. - TriggerTrashKid

43 Steamworld Dig
44 Batman Arkham
45 Battlefield 1

This is one game - Dvafan2

Battlefield is Overrated - ThOfficialDFC

46 Osu
47 Wario

Waluigi sucks. Kill me. - TriggerTrashKid

The less the better

48 Kirby Kirby
49 Mario Kart
50 Mortal Kombat

SO much hype. It's good but blood and gore doesn't make it the best. - TriggerTrashKid
