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 Minecraft Product Image

"B-b-but this isn't a franchise" - It is now thanks to Minecraft: Story Mode!

Anyways, are you really surprised that this is Number 1? Seriously, this is one of the most overrated things in existence. All you do is build stuff for whatever reason at all. This game has spawned so many channels solely dedicated to downloading stupid mods and skin packs then showcasing them. BAH. If I wanted to get a game just to buy mods, I'd get Garry's Mod, a game that has more advanced graphics and a game where you can actually INTERACT with the mod you are in as an actual game instead of just using it to mess around. This game has spawned several mods, skins, youtube channels who put no effort into their trash, way too much merchandise, a story mode spinoff that wasn't very good, and better yet, a MOVIE that will be coming in 1-2 years. Why? There's absolutely no story to this game at all so how can you possibly make a movie about this game? Even the FNaF Movie will be better because AT LEAST ...more

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.

Minecraft Story Mode Episode 5 (I forget the name of the Episode) was fanservice trash. All they did was grab semi-popular MC YouTubers and pay them to star in a cliche "Find the murderer" story. I feel like whoever played TorqueDawg paid his way into Minecraft Story Mode, because I have never heard of this guy before in my entire life.

How is this not number one? It's not only the most overrated video game franchise, but it is one of the most overrated things in the world, and do I even need to explain why?

2 Bendy and the Ink Machine Bendy and the Ink Machine Product Image
3 Fortnite Fortnite Product Image

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,

The most overrated game of 2018.

Not even a franchise but if this is here than overwatch and pubg can too

Most overrated game

4 Madden Madden Product Image

It's EA Sports and typically if you play one game, you've played them all. The only difference that each game offers is team roster changes and Better graphics. Don't give EA money if you have one of these games already because if you have one, you have all of them.

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

They are way overhyped and it's the same thing every frigging time

How many of these can they make?! I swear there's over 20...

5 Cuphead Cuphead

2017 is the worst years because of this!

Worst cuphead fandom out their!

How is this overstatuated?


6 FIFA FIFA Product Image

They make a FIFA game every year! I don't understand why so many people still buy these.

See Madden.

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.

7 Call of Duty Call of Duty Product Image

Pretty much the same thing over and over again in the most recent games. They even started to ditch the story mode and focused on multiplayer. They even released Call of Duty Warzone, a battle royal game...

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.

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

I haven't really tried the others, I've only play Modern Warfare 1 to 3 but I just don't like the other games much

8 Angry Birds Angry Birds Product Image

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!

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.

The original is good but then it evolves into 20 remakes of the same game,a movie,and a theme park? What the hell! At least Disney land and Disney World were based off of movies but this is a MOBILE APP!

Don’t get me wrong, I liked the original and the older version of seasons, but the rest are just bad. I haven’t played this in years, and for good reason. Angry Birds memorabilia are everywhere you look. They even made a movie, which was hot garbage. It is definitely over saturated.

9 Five Nights at Freddy's Five Nights at Freddy's Product Image

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.

How can such a simple and boring concept of a game spawn 3 sequels. The game isn't even scary besides the ridiculous looking animatronics that are more laughable than creepy. Scott Cawthon must have found that secret formular to an easy cash cow. I like to call this game "baby's first horror game" because it most likely is someone's first horror game.

The fist one was fine the second one was better but then it went downhill

It's just simply trying to survive a whole night avoiding jumpscares and getting killed by animatronics

10 Candy Crush Candy Crush Product Image

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.

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.

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.

Everyone keeps copying it and it got an AWFUL T.V. show that got like a 1.6 on IMDB and had to be cancelled after 9 episodes

The Contenders
11 Just Dance Just Dance Product Image

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

12 Grand Theft Auto

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.

Grand Theft Auto sucks.

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.

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.

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

14 Clash of Clans Clash of Clans Product Image

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.

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

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

Pretty much any mobile video game that takes off is oversaturated

15 Skylanders Skylanders Product Image

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!

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

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

It is not popular anymore

16 NBA 2K

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

Overrated - B1ueNew

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

17 Doki Doki Literature Club!
18 Assassin's Creed

There are a lot of Assassin's Creed games, but the most recent ones are really good. Only Unity and Syndicate sucked.


19 Battlefield

Battlefield 1 is super good. - TriggerTrashKid

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

20 Lego

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

Up next is Call of Lego: Brick Ops - TriggerTrashKid

21 Overwatch Overwatch Product Image

One game: One franchise. Wow.

22 Undertale

Love all the characters

23 Halo Halo Product Image

MCC was broken - TriggerTrashKid

24 Sonic the Hedgehog

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.

Great franchise, horrible fanbase

Sonic is awesome! Who added him to the list?

Worst franchise ever

25 Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. Product Image

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

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

At least it revolutionized gaming
