When many people call something "overrated", they are more often than not misusing the term. See, many people are under the impression that calling something "overrated" is the same thing as calling it "bad", when that isn't true. Rather, calling a book, movie, video game, or whatever "overrated" simply means that you think it gets more praise than it really deserves. For example, you may think that, say, The Legend of Zelda on NES is a good game, but you may also think it's overly praised. In that case, you would say that the Legend of Zelda is overrated.

You can still enjoy something even if you think it is overrated. Saying something is overrated does not instantly mean you think that something is poor quality. Simple as that. However, it is possible to be both overrated and bad. It all just depends on your opinion.
