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


The Top Ten

1 Pokémon Red

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

2 Final Fantasy VII V 1 Comment
3 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.

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

8 Dumb and Dumber
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!

10 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world more.

Nostalgia makes no sense I loved this show when I was young and I watched it again this year and still love it because it is actually a good show

This is overrated because of the memes - shawnmccaul22

The Contenders

11 Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable more.

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

18 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
19 Star Fox Assault Star Fox Assault

No one thought this was good. Oh wait that was Adventure...

20 The Lion King

It gave spotted hyenas a bad rap!

I watched it recently. It still holds up. - BeatlesFan1964

Better than The Black Cauldron. - TruthProphet

It is a terrible film and I would never accept that people like it.
