If you thought that Titanic was a disgrace to the Titanic, wait until you see the animated Titanic trilogy.
This film doesn't relate to the book that much
More overrated than Frozen. More overrated than Avatar if that is even possible. - 445956
No, this movie is a masterpiece. - PeeledBananaV 1 Comment
What, one of the best games - PeeledBanana
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
Very little replay value. Also, Charizard isn't that powerful. - TruthProphet
A perfect example of how nostalgia clouds judgement - Frouze
Pokemon red is extremely adorable and great!
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.
Brawl is better because of Project M.
I 100% agree. Melee fans will insult SSBB and SSB4 because it was made afer them. The fans are the kind of people who leave ranting bad reviews at the day of release that are basically there to say that Melee is better. Yes, Brawl wouldn't exist without Melee, but that does not automatically mean it is better. Besides, SSBM was secret (hence the 'Project M' a visitor put), so Nintendo didn't know what fans wanted, unlike later SSB titles. Any time I see a crazy Melee fan I just want to leave. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
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.
I didn't even know this game existed until I started watching video game YouTubers years back. I thought, "Why does this always have the best gameplay, the best graphics, or the best storyline? " I think people are blinded by nostalgia. Kinda like a food/drink you used to love as a kid, but when you try it as a teen it's okay or you maybe even hate it. The people who worship this game do not have that thought process, it is only good because they grew up with it. The first Zelda game isn't even as popular as this one! I have sadly never played a Zelda game, but even I know this is overrated.
Get The Legend Of Zelda: Overrated Of All Time to #1! - BlueTopazIceVanilla
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
There's tons of much better games than it (Megaman X4, Azure Striker Gunvolt 1 & 2, etc.) in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseXV 2 Comments
More overrated than Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseX
"Space opera." How do those two words make any sense when you put them side by side? - TruthProphet
The most overrated franchise in existence but I still respect it's special place in history. - PerfectImpulseX
Yes. But I can't say the same for Empire Strikes Back. - BeatlesFan1964
Star Wars? More like ‘Large Bore’. -_-V 2 Comments
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
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!
How did this get here?
This is stealing, A lot of stealing!
What a boring, teen-pandering rip-off of Arthur. - PerfectImpulseX
If you take your nostalgia goggles off, you'll find out it's pretty unfunny and offensive to gay people. - PerfectImpulseX
What is that - PeeledBanana
The first four books were excellent, don't get me wrong, but good luck finding anyone who will admit that the latter half of the series was even one iota less good.
Nope I read them for the first time this year at age 12 and finished at age 13 and still loved them
It gave spotted hyenas a bad rap!
Better than The Black Cauldron. - TruthProphet
I watched it recently. It still holds up. - BeatlesFan1964
Boring,too long,i can"t tell the battle scenes in two towers and ROTK apart honestly feels like the same movie, it's a good trilogy but people really think it's the best franchise ever made even more than the iconic SW? What is wrong with you people?V 1 Comment
My little sisters are obsessed over this show along with its sequel Fuller House even though they weren't born in the 1980's-1990's. - PerfectImpulseX
Nostalgia for the first three or four games and the two animated series are the only reason this very much product of the '90s hasn't faded away like puka shells and Giga Pets.
Modern Amy Rose is one of the main reasons why Sonic the Hedgehog is loved too much. I actually do not hate the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise like the so-called Sonic fanbase, but there are more than ten characters that make me ill by the fact that they are so one-dimensional from Omochao to Hope Kintobar to Antoine D'Coolette. >:(
Overhated, with Teletubbies, Dora, Boohbahs.
Loved that game - conroy85
No one thought this was good. Oh wait that was Adventure...
Seriously, this movie is overrated by every teenage girl/young woman on Tumblr who grew up in the 2000's! What a mean-spirited movie! - PerfectImpulseX
Why would you vote for Earthbound it is actually amazing still to this day and it is really good - TheThomasThomasV 1 Comment
I've never played this video game before and all but how the hell is it nostalgia? Hasn't it been out for less than a year? Or no? - HeavyDonkeyKong
Should be WAY higher than Pokemon. At least Pokemon doesn't have constant reformation to the point of boredom.
For the record, this only applies to the original arc. And mabye also, GX. But 5ds, Zexal, and Arc-5, those are modern. And Zexal and Arc-5 are actually underrated.
I bet ten years from now people will be saying this was the golden age of Cartoon Network, even if there would be better shows in the future. Nostalgia.
This series used to be light-hearted, but eventually became a narrative about liberalism. Also, the fanbase is psychotic beyond all recognition. - TruthProphet
Seriously, THIS is the best Cartoon Network show of all time? Courage the Cowardly Dog, The Powerpuff Girls (1998), Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, etc. were much better shows than this and the other modern CN shows. - PerfectImpulseX
A crappy SJW T.V. show. However, I have to agree it hasn't been out long enough for there to be a nostalgia factor. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
