Top 10 Things That Made Undertale As Overrated As It is Todayxandermartin98
The Top Ten
Undertale's good. The fandom's unhealthy obsession over Sans and Papyrus? Not good. They don't even play that big of a role in the game (except Genocide, but that excludes Papyrus), and according to the fanbase the whole game revolves around them. I like Sans as a character but with the fandom's obsession I just can't as much with the fandom's, ahem, *cough*rule 34 stuff. They're good characters, but the fandom pretty much dwelled and destroyed the best parts of the game. I'm not a big fan of Undertale, but acknowledge that it's a well-developed. The fandom, however, ouch. - Emberflight_of_StormClan
Also, if the fanbase finds out you hate either one of them, they'll flame you and say "You're gonna have a bad time, LOL! "
*huge disappointing sigh* These characters are part of Undertale's fame- and for a good reason too. They're both well developed characters but the fandom...they destroyed it like the Titans destroyed the wall.
This. This is the best comment on this list in my opinion. Yes, they did a good job developing them and all but the fandoms TOTALLY ruined them. Personally, I do like Sans but I hate the fandoms Sans. - TheGoldenRifle
The fandom is OBSESSED with these characters. The whole fanbase thinks undertale revolves around sans and papyrus (mostly sans)! Ugh, I hate all those sans fangirls! Some AUs have only sans (dreamtale even has an extra sans! )! Honestly, I like sans, but he's so overrated that I don't like him as much. Also, I prefer Mettaton. OH YESS!V 6 Comments
How did that happen? How do they force you? - Martinglez
Undertale is overrated. Seriously, the characters are creepy, the fan base will give you nightmares, and overall it's just not a good game
The toxicity that's shown to even mildly negative reviews is quite disappointing.
They Do? What? Also,I Agree That UT Characters Are Kinda Creepy,But I Don't Think Paps Can Be Taken Seriously.V 5 Comments
I'm sorry, but have you ever tried to beat Sans during the Genocide route? Haven't played the game myself yet, which I'm planning to, but that fight took most YouTubers literally HOURS! - Alpha101
Yeah openly admit not having a game with a harder difficulty is kind of a let down. I want to replay the game with much harder enemies to provide an interesting challenge. I know the game kind of does have a hard mode but it doesn't really last long does it?
Someone hasn't reached the end of any route. - ArchVoice14
Hey. They have a hard mode. Enter your name as Frisk. Have fun with that. - SpyroZap99V 1 Comment
It's not that "revolutionary" that they say.
This is really mean. I have autism and this just... Grinds my gears.
This is one of the most idiotic additions to a list ever. I hope that it gets deleted. - Alpha101
I know the fanbase is annoying and basically ruined the game but please do not call anyone autistic if they are not it is really rude and offensive to some people

Mark my words. Sans is not cute. He's ugly
They Are Not Cute LOOK AT THE SANS FANGIRLS SANS IS UGLY!
How does it being better mean it's overrated. Wouldn't if it's highly rated for a resin make it aptly rated?
You're right. That is pretty funny humor that you think Undertale has humor. If you're looking for a humor game play either Sonic Boom games.
Undertale was a good game. Keyword: was. The fandom, of course, ruined it. They started shipping characters that didn't belong and even wanted to meet Sans. THEN, they made horrible games like DUNDER-TALE or ABOVE-TALE. Undertale slowly got worse and worse. Now, it lies in hell.
Fandom whispers: (just like frisk-)
I don't think they're overrated just miss judges because most of people have never had gotten to play the games to me way better than undertale to you it could be overrated it's not overrated it's just people wanting to do what they can't do like you wanting to crap on a game people praise I rest my case
The entire MOTHER franchise is better than Undertale
At said time it was more underrated than overrated - Tyoshi
Mother is not overrated._.
You already have a damn skeleton inside yourselves, numbnuts
Pretty much this fam
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
Hold on, what? Xenoblade blows Undertale out of the water.
Just saying, but indie games can be good, you know. Well, some are bad, but really, most of them are good. - Catameow
Indie games aren't classics they can be fun but classics are way different
IGN gave this a 10... It's no where near that great. So many better games came out in 2015 from AAA developers such as MGS V and Witcher 3. Plus Outlast is a better indie game.
Indie =/= Automatically good. I've played Indies with better Graphics than this MSPaint Garbage. I wouldn't have minded it if people wern't being complete Nuisances about it. I don't judge Indies differently from AAAs because I don't think they're any different (I.E. Kickstarter Scams and Pay to Win Microtransactions)
That being said, The Premise is preachy. The gameplay is a snoozefeast. And the Characters look Hideous and goofy not to mention trying too hard to make you feel so sorry for Asriel along with the rest. The soundtrack is cool the first few times though but overexposure to it kinda makes me hate it.
And seeing everybody wouldn't shut up about it makes me almost Misanthropic.
They talked SO MUCH about it!
They say it's the only route, and they force you to do it.
Pacifist is my fave run (never. killing. METTATON! )
I could never kill toriel :3 she is to sweet and adorable and nice and... *rambles on for hours
I like Genocide better
I dunno why they hate Genocide
This goes for the OST as a whole, coming from a huge Undertale fan myself. Undertale has a very good OST. There are songs in it that are downright beautiful. But, first of all, Megalovania isn't even the best track in the OST. I guarantee you it's the most popular due to it being attached to sans. Second of all, it isn't even the best OST of 2015. Hotline Miami 2 holds that throne, if you were to ask me. You might often hear comparisons drawn between Undertale and Touhou. Far better songs have come out of that series as well. Both Hotline Miami and Touhou are indie games, mind you.
First time is nice, but after awhile and hearing other tracks it does get tiring fast.
Honestly, it's a good track, but there are WAY better tracks in the game i.e Hopes And Dreams, Spider Dance, Bonetrousle, Dummy, Death By Glamour...
I don't get the feel of the song the other 2 final boss themes are better - TyoshiV 3 Comments
For some reason, every famous YouTuber there is decided to play it. As such, it was brought to the attention of the cancerous little kids that follow them.
I have absolutely no idea why it became so popular. Games like Undertale are usually niché and appreciated by the few people who know about them (case in point: Earthbound.), but not this one. It's honestly saddening, thinking about how different the fandom would have been if only its exposure wouldn't have been so devastatingly quick. - ArchVoice14
But... this is talking about undertale. Your statement confuses me, archvoice. Please explain.
OK now 50 and below is just joking.
It beat Ocarina of Time?!?! I have no faith in my generation. I am crying right now.
Seriously, go back and play OOT nowadays, and you'll see that the main reason that game holds up at all in the first place is pretty much entirely due to nostalgia. Trust me on this one - xandermartin98
The old, but good games are shadowed by the trash "new" games with "cool graphics"
ARE YOU SERIOUS? (I haven't played it but I know about it) - TheGoldenRifle

Internet rating's major problem...12 years old that screw up the ratings.
I mean what the internet ruins the whole damn game I mean what? Fanbase just makes you want to kill yourself, there's try not laughs that aren't funny and surprise surprise they're undertale based! Every kid "enjoys" this game because they haven't played a decent RPG/indie game in their young, long lives RPG/indie games are great but Undertale is just a bad a example of what a "good game is" plus there's even porn of Undertale! Just type Undertale on rule #34 and you instantly hate the game.
Brain fetishism, enough said - xandermartin98
I could have made better graphics in Microsoft Paint. to be honest, the budget has nothing to do with this, but the tools you use, and your basic skill of moving a mouse and clicking on some places to put down a few pixels. Cave Story, made in 2004, had NO budget whatsoever, and the graphics look great.
It's supposed to have cruddy graphics...? It's made in Game Maker, what do you expect?
It's an indie game made on a tight budget what did you expect?
Undertale fans cannot understand that a theory is a theory, and bash on people when they don’t believe the theories and go on to tell everybody that their theory is ‘canon’. I am looking at the Chara is good theory. I don’t believe she is evil(just abused), but I don’t shove it down people’s throats. And Chara was not a saint. Like every other undertale character, she has flaws!
This thing only appears ONCE in the game, yet, it is the most sick and repeated bunch of words together.
Okay this I have to admit on. Everyone thinks he's so fabulous. When really, he looks kinda girly. - lolololololol
Mettaton overrated? Ha no... Even though he is my probably favorite character he is marked 10th on best undertale characters. If you want overrated try Sans but I still love Sans
Lol I thought he was a girl 0-0
His legs thoughV 2 Comments
I dunno, a lot of people keep talking about how amazing the soundtrack is, but to me it's just always been great, but kinda average. There are a lot of games with just as good, possibly better soundtracks out there. - Emberflight_of_StormClan
'Scuse you, the soundtrack is REALLY GOOD.
Tru I never saw a bit of personality in chara. I hate when stuff like this happens
...simply yes, is there really any competition to the Mother Trilogy? The Game that Undertale was inspired from, along with Cave Story, just listening to a few parts of its soundtrack I can already hear the Mother, and some of the dialogue...
Good thing I bought the game for 6.99 when it was on sale. It was so worth the $3 saved
Only time will tell if this game can stand the test of time. If it still is received well by the end of the decade then maybe...
Incorrect. It was a highly great game. Not the BEST.
If anything chose Mass Effect 2 - shawnmccaul22
They make it look like.V 1 Comment
How does that make that bad? - lolololololol
Steam is a place for good or average games, not for Undertale.
*Only appears in ONE place!.
*People overuses they to make jokes.
Not interesting, and don't look like an skeleton.
Not really in the game?
The story line is amazing! Don't be dumb! - lolololololol
It doesn't have one, it's just you walking around a place full of weird.
