Top Ten Video Games and Game Franchises that Get Too Much Attention by Fanbases

These are just the games that have fanbases that overhype them to the extreme, whether it's a new installment to series coming out or they just can't shut up about the game. Also i like some of these games and series. They just get more attention than needed from their fanbases

The Top Ten

1 Fortnite

It is honestly more overrated than Smash, I mean it's not like everyone talks about Smash in school every single day, in fact I only know one more guy other than me from my class that is a nintendo fan, almost everyone in my class plays Fortnite except for a minority - darthvadern

My school has people that like fortnite and mario kart 8 deluxe - B1ueNew

Guys, winning a game of solo is not a monumental achievement. So stop posting your wins on some social media platform. - MrCoolC

I seriously can't go through a whole day of school without hearing the title of this game - Pieclone

It's a good game, but yeah the fanbase is overrated. - Userguy44

2 Roblox

Full of corrupt admins, perverted and awfully disrespectful players who live in the most cruel and vile community you could think of, and the people who work at roblox don't do a thing about it. - Epikrika

Rubbish game, the character models all look like it was made by someone who has no taste in designing - darthvadern

I just don't see the appeal for this game, It's all just a lag fest. Tried it on my friend's computer. I wanted to quit playing after a minute, The microtransactions in this game are even worse than fortnite's vbuck system (which isn't even that bad in my opinion) - B1ueNew

Just as bad and meme-bait-y as Fortnite. - TheYoshiPyro64

3 Minecraft

This game is excellent in my opinion, it makes you somewhat creative and the soundtrack is even more excellent! - darthvadern

Minecraft is dead. - Drawbox

I still hate this game so overrated and overhyped - B1ueNew

The only reason people STILL care about Minecraft is because of mods and that's it, Every new Minecraft video is mainly mods which you can't get on PS4 or Xbox One, So console minecraft players like me are left with some mediocre decent minigames. Now Minecraft just gets boring. Like there's almost nothing to do without any world codes or mods - B1ueNew

4 Candy Crush

Thankfully it's almost forgotten by now - darthvadern

Candy Crush is awful.

One of the stupidest games to ever exist - Epikrika

Candy Crush is an awful game.

5 The Legend of Zelda

Mainly Nintendrones overrate this series. I put this at number 1 over Fortnite, Minecraft, Roblox and Overwatch because everyone this site thinks this series is the best ever, Every game from this series is 10/10, Now no, Not every game in this series is a masterpiece, I can say that because I have played The original first Legend Of Zelda, Twilight Princess (Wii), Wind Waker (Wii u), Ocarina of time (3DS), and Breath of the Wild (Wii U), so I have played pretty much enough games to judge this series, Now It's a good series, But the fans are terrible. It's not even the best Nintendo franchise Kirby and Mario are better to be honest. If you say one flaw about any Zelda game. Get ready for angry Nintendo fans because they're coming for you. - B1ueNew

I respect your opinion, but Kirby better than Zelda? I can agree with Mario, but Zelda is honestly better in my opinion. - Drawbox

Give it a rating lower than 10/10 and they'll send death threats to you. - Not_A_Weeaboo

NO!, It's not on number 1 anymore - B1ueNew

While I love this game series, the fans can go crazy. But then again, if you make any Nintendo game look bad, Nintendrones will kill you on social media. - Drawbox

6 Overwatch

I never saw the appeal, Other than just being a paid version of Team Fortress 2 with more anime styled characters. Now look I can see why people like it even though I don't, but best game of 2016? , Hell no, It's not better than Uncharted 4 or Dark Souls 3 by any means, Plus when this came out, Everyone attacked you if you didn't like it. I just could never get into this game - B1ueNew

I remember when it came out and I thought it had something to do with watches (you know those clocks you have on your arms) - darthvadern

Some like the game only because of Tracer - Mranonymously

Dat fanart - Drawbox

7 Super Smash Bros.

This whole series is pretty overrated, never saw the appeal of it, I might get this one though, but I'm more hyped about Super Mario Party, Yoshi's Crafted World and way many other upcoming nintendo games - darthvadern

I have never heard anyone say they are more excited for a Mario party game over a crossover between all nintendo characters, But eh. It's your opinion - B1ueNew

I honestly think that this is worse than Zelda's fanbase. At least Zelda fans don't scream their throats out whenever a new feature is announced. And E3 was more of a Smash fest than anything else. - Drawbox

People on the site about Fortnite being popular and talked about, But when ultimate comes out, It's considered the best game of 2018 already. (It's number 2 already on the list of best 2018 games and has more comments than God of War). But the fan base is just horrible. Waluigi sucks and is very ugly and is just made for filler. But the fans just make memes about Waluigi not being in the game. They also complain about Nintendo not nerfing certain characters. - B1ueNew

Can anyone tell me how Mario got higher? Or Zelda? - Drawbox

8 Five Nights at Freddy's

I remember when this was really popular back in 2015, But to be honest I just avoided it, Because the game just seemed very boring. Many youtubers make a big deal out of this franchise, It doesn't even look that scary in reality. It's just a mediocre idea with a very disgusting fanbase - B1ueNew

I liked the first one and Sister Location, the rest though? Not so much, the fourth one in particular was pretty bad - darthvadern

9 Super Mario Bros.

Now Mario is amazing and all. Great fun and colorful visuals. Fun gameplay, But Every main game has the same story. Yet they all get praise!, The main story is just peach gets kidnapped then mario goes into a bunch of different worlds then saves her!. At least Sonic tries to be more creative with the plot - B1ueNew

Mario games are not about the story, it's about the adventure, also, have you tested Super Paper Mario? The story is completely different from other games - darthvadern

Disagree, on the internet it may be very popular but in real life I rarely hear people talk about it, and even then it deserves the attention in my opinion - darthvadern

Amazing, but I don't like how people praise a bit too much. - Drawbox

I agree with iliekpiez - B1ueNew

10 Cuphead

Personally, I love this game. But I am not going to defend at every turn. It is in my opinion a great game, with a phenomenal animation style and good bosses. I would recommend it to someone personally. - iliekpiez

Horrible Fandom!

Boring Fanbase I ever seen and a waste of time!

How about Cuphead NO!

The Contenders

11 Call of Duty

I like Call of Duty more the battlefield, Fight me, Mainly because of the zombies, and the campaigns are more fun, But yes Call of Duty gets too much attention. Mainly the sequels are the same every year, For example. Black ops 4 is the same as Black ops 3. But what did they do that was different? , Take out the main story, Like why would you take out the story? , The Story is mostly what takes to have a good game. So what they replace it with? , A flipping First person only version of PUBG!, Activision is just greedy, Not as much as EA though - B1ueNew

I wish they'd spend more time developing the game instead of releasing sequels annually. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Violent war game with no real purpose other than shooting people, enough' said, what's even fun about killling people? - darthvadern

True, but at least they don't show off a bunch of blood and gore when you stomp on a goomba, and the koopa just hides in his shell when you stomp him - darthvadern

12 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.

The anime is more overrated but yeah the video game series is too, I have Alpha Sapphire, it's great but I don't think I will get another pokemon game after that (except for Let's Go Eevee maybe) - darthvadern

Most of the fandom are just elementary school children who trade Pokemon cards and treat the anime like the best thing ever. - Drawbox

Pokemon is good but WAY too overrated, The fanbase complains too much about certain pokemon, Oh and have you seen the backlash for Pokemon let's go Pikachu and Eeeve? - B1ueNew

13 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
14 Undertale Undertale

I like it a little but it's definitely overrated - darthvadern

15 Earthbound

It may get too much attention from its fans, but it still deserves more from the public. - TheYoshiPyro64

16 Sonic the Hedgehog

Are you kidding? The Sonic fanbase is so disrespectful to the games, that Sega made a whole episode of Sonic Boom that made fun of the fans. Really only the Classic fans fall into this category. - Drawbox

I have never been a fan of Sonic, I stick to the Mario franchise - darthvadern

Yeah sonic is dead, And his fanbase is some of the worst I have seen - B1ueNew

Sonic was never good - iliekpiez

I strongly disagree on that but I can see why you don't like sonic - B1ueNew

17 Lego Series

I love LEGO City Undercover and Lego Indiana Jones though, especially LEGO City Undercover, that was a ton of fun. - iliekpiez

I never saw the appeal for it - darthvadern

I hate most lego games - B1ueNew

18 Grand Theft Auto V

Thanks to spoiled brat kids who cuss on the mic - B1ueNew

19 NBA 2K14

God I hate this series. The same thing every year, just some better graphics. - iliekpiez

Why was this posted five times - iliekpiez

20 Need for Speed
21 God of War
22 Battlefield

Battlefield 1 was great but other than that, There really isn't much battlefiels games that are still fun today - B1ueNew

23 The Last of Us

It's not the best Naughty Dog game to be honest - B1ueNew

24 Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning

It was an enjoyable game and all but people overhype it for no reason, sometimes I feel like all you need to do to get popular is to be as lazy as possible - darthvadern

I think this is a... don't know - Epikrika

25 Final Fantasy

Okay, I added this and should have clarified upon doing so. This refers to the series, not just the first game. The problem I have here is that most of the "Final Fantasy" games are the same thing: long and boring, like practically all RPGs are. However, the games are somehow near-universally acclaimed-the seventh one being particularly notorious-and I am sick of it. It gets attention it does not need or deserve at all. The hilariously/atrociously bad translations found in most JRPGs are simply icing on the cake.

26 Portal

I really like it personally - iliekpiez

It seems nice - Epikrika

27 Superman 64

Overrated because of all the hate it gets, Its not even the worst game, I would rather the play the whole thing than 30 seconds of Infinite Warfare if I'm being honest - B1ueNew

28 Team Fortress 2
29 Animal Soccer World Animal Soccer World

Who added this here? - TheYoshiPyro64
