Top 10 Video Games With the Most Overrated Storyline


The Top Ten

1 Final Fantasy VII
2 Cave Story

Same here as with Mother 3. - xandermartin98

3 Five Nights at Freddy's

How the hell is this not number 1? Theories are everywhere for this crap.i bet scott made the story impossible to connect

The theories though. Toy Chica is the dead kid's mom, The Marionette is the dead kid, the father is Scott, Scott is Purple Man, the brother who everyone hates is Bonnie, people quit making idiotic theories!

There's like a million theory's every where and everyday people come out with new ones. The bad thing is is that some of them don't even relate which gets me really annoyed

With so much lore around this one game, I just put it aside to keep my mind from blowing up - Mcgillacuddy

4 Final Fantasy VI
5 Halo 4
6 Mother 3

This is my favorite game. The story is sad (its literally around a kid's mom dying), the game is fun, the soundtrack is great, and the characters are great. Please don't judge me for this claim. - shawnmccaul22

I love this game and all, but it it is just so pretentious and is almost completely lacking in any sense of subtlety whatsoever. - xandermartin98

Lol what is Mother 3 doing on this list, it has arguably the greatest story ever, in any video game - CloudStrife

7 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
8 Super Mario Galaxy

The story is great and all but it's definitely not good enough to make the game better than Galaxy 2

9 The Last of Us

How can you even say that? This is like the perfect game and the storyline is perfect. - EJ0602

10 Portal 2

WHO PUT THIS ON HERE! - Ilikegames

The Contenders

11 Earthbound
12 Fallout 3

The player character has barely any effect on the world. He/she is merely a pawn of the game's NPCs who really drive the plot.

13 Undertale Undertale

I'm not denying that this game has a wonderfully charming and beautifully written storyline with amazing twists and turns galore...

but people seriously need to stop treating it like the type of deep, serious and philosophical plot you would see in a game like Xenogears. - xandermartin98

The game was okay, but overrated as hell. And the fandom? ABSOLUTELY CANCER. They scream into your ears "UNDERTALE IS THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD WHOEVER HATES IT DESERVES TO DIE" Like seriously? They need to die just because they have a different opinion from you? I swear, Underrale fans are the worst.

If I hear "papyrus is bae" or "I want to marry sans" I will flip a table. I'm sick and tired of all my friends liking this "best game of all time." The characters are idiots.

14 Minecraft

Minecraft has no story, all while it has one. Why did you vote for it? YOU make the story yourself. Are you a pirate? Are you a warrior? Are you a god? It's your decision.

U mean the story mode - ikerevievs

Sucks - spodermanfan1000

There is a storyline...
the 12 year old rage :D

15 God of War
16 Metroid Fusion
17 Metal Gear Solid 4

The whole storyline of this game is very incoherent and just plain fan service. The only Metal Gear game with a really great story is MGS3.

18 Suikoden II
19 Borderlands 2
20 Sonic Adventure 2

Number one, that's sonic adventure 2 battle, number 2, this game isn't overrated, it's like that because it's literally THE best Sonic game. The plot was amazing. Mario lover and Sonic hater alert :l.

Also, I'm the guy from below, go back to kindergarten who ever put the picture up. You can clearly see the word 'battle' RIGHT UNDERNEATH THE 2

21 Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

As an avid fan of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story's predecessors, I am aware that this game does have some flaws (such as the fact that some characters are in love with Princess Peach's overly girly voice which is what the first half of this game's story is about besides many other stuff that is heavily/so much more crucial). - The Ultimate Daredevil

22 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Who added this? - DCfnaf

23 Kingdom Hearts
24 Bioshock Infinite
25 BioShock
26 Half-Life 2

Who put this? - doodie

27 The Walking Dead Game

This is a fake list - Ilikegames

28 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

It was really confusing and it started off too slow, focusing solely on the bland interactions between Link and Zelda when they have nothing to do with the main story of the game and their interactions tend to go on too long. - Pinkarray
