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 Cuphead

This video game seems extremely unappealing to me. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Many character are Disgusting! - sonicsonic039

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

Game: Mind blowing and Spectacular
Fanbase: *facepalm* - TriggerTrashKid

2 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

Yes this is a list that gets it right - Dvafan2

Best example of good games with bad fanbases. - TriggerTrashKid

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

3 Roblox

Community is more toxic than poison ivy. - TriggerTrashKid

Roblox in a nutshell:

1. Incompetent admin

2. Perverts

3. Little kids

4. Obbys - SplatoonKing56

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

4 Minecraft

Don't worry in a few years there will be a baby boomer so all these games will have good fanbases - FallenBlaze

Ridiculously overrated, me and my buddies asked some kindergarten students what their favorite game is
Their reply: MINECRAFT YOU DUMMIES! - TriggerTrashKid

Minecraft is dead. - Drawbox

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

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

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

It's not very overrated because it's not a bad game

Just because something's good doesn't make it not overrated kid - B1ueNew

6 Super Smash Bros.

They treat as if it is the most Legendary and Godlike series. - TriggerTrashKid

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

Mediocre game franchise. I don't know way people like this? Only the music is good.

7 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

How the hell did it get Game Of The Year?!? One of the worst decisions ever! - TriggerTrashKid

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

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 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

10 Candy Crush

If they gave us real candies as rewards...I would spend my life on it. - TriggerTrashKid

Thankfully it's almost forgotten by now - darthvadern

Candy Crush is awful.

Candy Crush is an awful game.

The Contenders

11 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

The fanbase is so much of an abomination that I want to Hulk SMASH it it! - TriggerTrashKid

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

12 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.

(cough) VI, VII and X (cough) - xandermartin98

13 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

14 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.

In my dream, the pokemon devs came running towards me and pleaded, SAVE US FROM THE FANBASE!
I was the supreme god in the dream. - TriggerTrashKid

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

15 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

16 Undertale Undertale

Most overrated game in history of mankind. - Userguy44

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

17 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

A PUBG Mobile player beat me up because I said it is bad.
What has happened to the world? - TriggerTrashKid

18 Team Fortress 2

At least, it's better than Overwatch. - TriggerTrashKid

Don't hate me on that, I am just portraying my opinion, I don't like Overwatch, that's all. - TriggerTrashKid

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 Earthbound

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

21 Grand Theft Auto V

The whole series is trash.

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

It. Is. Trash. - TriggerTrashKid

22 Battlefield

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

23 Super Metroid

You'd think that its ROM hacks would have improved its combat by now - xandermartin98

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

25 Lego Series

LEGO blocks are better. - TriggerTrashKid

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

26 Need for Speed
27 God of War

Every fanbase is attracted to the game. And the fanbase of GoW isn't crazy. - TriggerTrashKid

28 The Last of Us

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

29 Portal

I really like it personally - iliekpiez
