Top 10 Video Games, Movies and Shows That Are Greatly Overrated Due to Their Nostalgia Factors

The Top Ten

1 Titanic (Film)

This film doesn't relate to the book that much

I don't care about "Jack" and "Rose", I don't care about their romance or romance in general, I don't care if a character dies, I don't care about its awards, I don't care about this movie at all.

The reason? It was just an insult to the real life tragedy.

2 Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy VII is overrated across the board, and a colossal spit in the face to RPG fans. It shed the quintessential elements that made is predecessors great in favor of neurotic melodrama that doesn't work well by any standard, anime tropes, and character types presented as if to appeal to weeaboos and aspies. The overall plot had potential, but basically turned into an emo kid's "emotional struggle." The characters can easily be defined: edgy kid protagonist, black guy replete with stereotypes, pretty boy supervillain to appease the fangirls, and chick we're supposed to care about later because she dies. The sci-fi concepts presented are a joke, and don't hold a candle to that of Chrono Trigger. The battle system is a let down, and the cutscenes make The Joy of Painting seem entertaining. There's also some political crap later on, but it's not
particularly captivating because somebody at Square back in the day forgot to write a script. It's practically West Side Story with an ...more - TruthProphet

3 Pokémon Red

Very little replay value. Also, Charizard isn't that powerful. - TruthProphet

Regular Charizard sucks. I can defeat him with Stone Edge in one hit and then Charizard dies bye bye.

Seriously though, this game is boring now. Why would you play this when there are tons of other Pokemon Games.

4 The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

Compared to Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, as well as other fantasy games like Final Fantasy XII, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Xenoblade Chronicles, this game just doesn't hold up anymore.

Heck, in retrospect, I would say that Undertale actually kind of deserved to beat Ocarina Of Time in that stupid GameFaqs poll.

Or maybe that stupid poll shouldn't have even existed in the first place because there is really no such thing as THE best game ever, regardless of Undertale being a goddamned phenomenal and beautiful storytelling experience of a game.

I guess what I'm really trying to say here is that it really doesn't take much of a game to beat Ocarina Of Time by today's standards, you know? :/ - xandermartin98

This game gets 10/10, 100%, etc by everybody simply because of its nostalgia factor, I'm sorry but this game is just boring, bland and stupid.

I criticised this game for a few facts and the fandom took this as an offense and brought out their "Beserk Guns" and fired the "F***" bullets at me.

5 Spongebob Squarepants
6 Super Smash Bros. Melee

Brawl is better because of Project M.

7 Street Fighter II
8 Pokémon Gold/Silver
9 Shrek

A really dumb, gross movie about butts, poop, as farts. Older people say ALL T.V. shows have toilet humor, but this is the worst kind. The plot was generic, I guessed who the love interest was the second Fiona was introduced, and the meme is not even funny. AT ALL.
Then they spam this garbage to no end, and they're on their what, FOURTH Shrek?!?!?! This movie series is milked more than Ice Age and Alpha and Omega COMBINED!

The battles are too drawn out and the plot is contrived. On top of that, it seems like Akira Toriyama needs to give every character a power that will enable them to blow up the universe 50 times. - TruthProphet

This is my favorite show and I've only really watched it for a year and a half. It's not nostalgia, it's just a flat out amazing show. - TheEvilNuggetCookie
