Anything that's given TOO much hype. The type of thing that, if you see it again, you're liable to check your self into a mental institution

4.
A term used to describe something that gets more hype and credit than it's actually worth.

So due to personal opinion and anyone who hates anything that's well known, No matter how brilliant something is, if it gets a lot of media attention then there's always someone who will think it's overrated.
Person A) "I'm gonna watch my TV..."
Person B) "TV is overrated"

Person A) "I want an Xbox..."
Person B) "Xbox is overrated"
Person A) "Jesus, shutup"
Person B) "Jesus is overrate-"
