Who is the most overrated big bad in Vidya?
Undead humans in general. What is it about dying that just makes people bad?

Overrated or overused? Because the ones you listed were overused.
Overrated would probably be Sephiroth or Handsome Jack. Sephiroth was a neat villain, but with poor translation his motivations were very unclear at times. And then you've got an eldritch alien thing which serves as a much more terrifying force. As for Handsome Jack I will never understand why people obsessed over him for a time. He had the occasional good line, but most of the time he just rants about how your so trash and how awesome he is. That can be done well, but when a villain is in constant communication they feel a lot less imposing and, as a player, you have to almost wonder why they're spending so much time talking to you rather than killing you. Besides that he suffers from Gearbox's trashy lolsorandumb humor.
As for overused definitely corruption, by far. So many games pose the villain as this nebulous force that can seemingly take over tons of shit but never has any set rules. It's a cheap way to make something seem imposing, but not write or give the player much reason to fear it. Look at WoW for one of the worst uses.
Because they sided against us in the Korean war and have been extremely quiet on what they do. It's the isolation that lets writers go haywire with China. They could do the same with North Korea in theory but everyone just finds that place hilarious.
China literally stole our jobs. I meet not the Chinese, but the china goberment. With the agreement of the US goberment (Ronald Reagan). then they blamed it all on the immigrants.
I once got a nigger mad at me on Xbox Live because of that (back in 2008)
nuclear apocalypse desu. it wouldn't turn everyone into a bunch of retard cavemen eventually the world would recover. it'd take a few decades to start seeing the effects but it'd happen.
also Ayy Lmaos though mabye i just play too many space games and shit.
Zombies aren't shit and are overrated as fuck really but don't you even begin to act like Lich's are properly represented in vidya. Lich power levels are through the roof and they have thousands of years of knowledge and experience in magic under their belt. They should be near unkillable literal God-like status. I cant really think of a game that properly depicts how powerful a Lich should really be. they're pushovers in pretty much every work they appear in.
Vampires are also a close second but they vary greatly between different franchises from being just slightly stronger than human level like WoD vampires, to a lot stronger than average but not even close to the top of the food chain like in elder scrolls, then borderline unkillable just below demon tier in D&D lore. i dont' think they're represented in more than two D&D games that i've played though and you only fight one in one game if i remember right.
I'm not even going to touch spectral beings like ghosts, shadows, and wraiths because i don't really consider them undead. they're sort of their own sub category.
"Real"-world settings: Russia still being the big bad and superpower long after collapse of USSR is the most annoying crap in writing.
Sci-fi: Aliens who want to destroy everything for the sake of it and are super-duper-turbo powerful, getting all that power from their ass
Fantasy: I'm sick and tired of undead manace
>tfw when the undead character is a total bro
Divinity:OS depicts a lich properly. She's turned an entire forest into an undead hellscape that requires extensive preparation just to enter without dying to toxic gasses. She's also entirely invulnerable until you find her skeleton and fuck with it.
And on top of having to defile her skeleton just to hurt her, getting to the skeleton requires you to kill off and ressurect a PC because only corpses are allowed into her crypt.
