Top 10 Video Games, Movies, TV Shows and Music Artists that Are Great But Not "Greatest Of The Entire Genre" Like Everyone Says

The Top Ten Video Games, Movies, TV Shows and Music Artists that Are Great But Not "Greatest Of The Entire Genre" Like Everyone Says

Shrek (Animated Comedy Movies)

PLEASE tell me that the people saying this aren't serious - xandermartin98

Classic Star Wars (Sci-Fi Movies)

Good but extremely generic film series that is basically just an old-school samurai film but set in outer space; when it comes to the intellectually stimulating and interesting side of science fiction, there are literally countless INFINITELY better films out there for achieving that - xandermartin98

Spongebob Squarepants (All-Ages Surrealist Political Satire Cartoons) SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. more.

(HACK, COUGH) Rocko's Modern Life (SPUTTER, WHEEZE) - xandermartin98

Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings (Book-Adaptation Movies)

Is actually quite plainly laughable compared to the original books (much like Harry Potter) and also has Shawshank Redemption and the like to compete with in terms of its overall quality level; if you actually go and watch Peter Jackson's documentary on the series, he even personally admits that he had no idea what he was doing - xandermartin98

Radiohead (Psychedelic Alternative Rock) Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

For anyone who ISN'T ridiculously into this band:

Name ONE album from them that you actually LIKE unironically besides OK Computer and The Bends (and, stretching, MAYBE Kid A and IN_RAINBOWS)
That, and also, they are nowhere even near the most experimental band to ever exist (seriously, Velvet Underground and the like are a thing too, you know, and also existed LONG before this band ever did); much of their so-called work, in fact, sounds as if it was directly plagiarized from other bands, and in quite a few cases, it actually kind of WAS

Their Pablo Honey, Bends and Computer albums are respectively blatant ripoffs of the general music styles for Nirvana/StoneTemplePilots, R-E-M and Pink Floyd
The song Karma Police is heavily based off of Sexy Sadie from The Beatlles, and its usage of the phrase "I lost myself" was probably a direct rip from R-E-M's Pop Song 89 as well
The background melody for No Surprises is basically just the intro to Smashing ...more - xandermartin98

Street Fighter (Fighting Games)

As far as depth is concerned, this and Mortal Kombat alike are both complete trash compared to Tekken and Soul Calibur - xandermartin98

Spirited Away (Anime Movies)

Even among Miyazaki works themselves, Princess Mononoke and Floating Castle are pretty huge competitors to this movie to say the least; don't even get me STARTED on how much Akira COMPLETELY blows this one out of the water either - xandermartin98

I disagree xandermartib98

Chrono Trigger (Japanese Role-Playing Games)

Great game for its time but arguably not even as good as Final Fantasy VI in my opinion
(for the record, both are absurdly overrated and completely broken games) - xandermartin98

Super Metroid (Metroidvania Games)

Don't get me wrong; the graphics, sound and especially atmosphere for this game are all UNBELIEVABLY top-notch...however, its absolutely amazing ROM hacks aside, it's quite frankly a ridiculously short game that relies far too heavily ON its graphics and really hasn't aged very well in terms of level and ESPECIALLY game design when compared to most of its genre's newer offerings - xandermartin98

Undertale (Indie Games)

Easily one of THE most memorable cinematic experiences I've EVER had with a game, don't get me wrong, but as an actual GAME and not a movie (NOTE: Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI also kind of suffer from the exact same problem), it's merely good and not actually great

In terms of what the best OVERALL indie game is, Shovel Knight and Axiom Verge (for one thing) would REALLY like to have a word with this one
And even in Undertale's "quirky parody RPG" genre alone, Lisa and OFF are both extremely underrated AND independently developed gems that got completely overshadowed by it - xandermartin98

Sorry, Minecraft, Castle Crashers, Cuphead and PUBG, a game whose music is the best part is surely the best Indie game!

The Newcomers

? Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped (Best 3-d Platformer)

The Contenders

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Mecha Anime)
The Beatles (Rock Bands)

Mixture of rock and pop.
Yellow submarine?

Queen’s better - Weirdest-thing

Of course it’s The Beatles that get this shade. If y’all like your music, you have John, Paul, George and Ringo to thank. They’re the ones that changed music from short simple love tunes to inventive introspective masterpieces in the span of only 8 years. Queen’s great but their early hits are definitely homages to what The Beatles layed out in the late 60’s. And whereas Queen got watered down as they got more famous, The Beatles got more technical and inventive as they became more famous. Queen went from March of the Black Queen to Invisible Man. The Beatles went from Love Me Do to A Day In The Life.

Sailor Moon (Magical Girl Anime)

It's good from the clips I've seen (and the manga chapters I've read) of it but the first three seasons of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, ViVid Strike!, Cardcaptor Sakura, and HeartCatch Precure all are better shows than it in my opinion. - PerfectImpulseX

Rocko's Modern Life (Classic Nicktoons) Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Metroidvania Games)

SOTN (bigger) vs Super Metroid (better); take your pick - xandermartin98

Resident Evil 4 (Survival Horror)
The Big Bang Theory (Comedy) The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.
Peter Gabriel (Genesis Front Man)

Phil Collins is better - Weirdest-thing

Metallica (Best Metal Bands) Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". more.
