They aren't worthless in my views. I make sure that all my pages have meta tags like description, keywords and others. These types of meta tags rank me better in Google and attract more users towards my website through search-engine. Some meta-tags are useless while some are compulsory. Depends on your usage. For me, they are important.

Search engines do use them, but only if they are in context with the content on the page.
Meta Tag keyword stuffing no longer has the results in SEO that it once had, and that's a good thing in my book.

Meta KEYWORDS are ignored by Google, however, meta DESCRIPTION is very important, not just from an SEO standpoint, but also from a usability standpoint. If the description in the search results is something very relevant, people will click on that over a text that's generated from the first paragraph of text of a competitor.

Meta title is still very important and that needs to match with your H1. Meta description holds no SEO weight, but is critical to helping click throughs. Meta keywords no longer carry any SEO weight, but they won't hurt either as long as they match content of that page and aren't overstuffed. If you test Google queries, you'll notice that titles and descriptions are truncated on SERPS. Try to stay within the parameters Google recommends.

If you over stuff the keywords, your website will be penalized. It is important to use keyword variations for getting best results.

Rather than thinking more about stuffing and meta tags, it is better think more on how you can keep your page natural. Now over stuffing can kill your rankings and at a same time too many tags can add more spam to the page. Keep it natural and simple for visitors, the same will be considered by Google.

Meta keywords are useless but also harmless if you still add them.

Meta descriptions on the other hand are still very valid for SEO.

I don't think anything is worthless. You just need to change as per the latest updates from Google and I think following this you can find some results. Meta Tags, keywords, meta tag description are important and need to be mentioned properly.

Most are worthless. However, I still include Title/Description/Keywords/Author included in all of my posts. You can say they are outdated all you want, I still see SE's using the information!
