Games you feel were/are underrated
« on: April 30, 2015, 08:36:31 AM »
Simple enough, really. What games do you feel were underrated / didn't get enough exposure?

Here's some off the top of my head:
Giants Citizen Kabuto for the PC: Pretty great game with three entirely different races (Not just different weapons -literally entirely different-) and a pretty sweet campaign mode. It got good reviews, but alas, faired poorly, and what should have been a classic like HL is something nobody has heard of. One of the lead devs is working on a spiritual successor (First Wonder), which is cool.

Armed & Dangerous for the PC: Sequel to above game. No multiplayer, but a hilarious game with guns that shoot Land Sharks, tea drinking gladiator robots, and generally a ton of humor. Was hilarious and one of the games I grew up with. Got good ratings IIRC but, again, suffered from a lack of exposure. Was the last (and second) PC game the company made before moving to PSP and console games.

Caster: Amazing 3$ indie game with a sweet trance soundtrack and some of the best controls I've seen in a game. Once you upgrade your jump to max you can almost fly and it is probably the most fun I've ever had jumping. The terrain deformation and ability to run on water is pretty cool as well.

Renegade Ops: Pretty sweet top-down shooter released a few years back. Has cool-as-hell graphics and is pretty fun (though admittedly I haven't played too much of it), yet it seems mostly unheard of. Edit: Yeah this game is effing sweet. Vehicle controls are fluid and graphics are gr9. I don't even -like- top down shooters that much.

Monster Tale
Some NES/SNES single games (like Ice Climbers)
F-Zero in a way
Golden Sun
Advance Wars
EarthBound/Mother in a way

Mario Party 9 and 10, and you already know why.
Also, I haven't really seen people talk about Kirby's Epic Yarn, so i guess that game's underrated too.

How is Mega Man and Crash Bandicoot underrated? Both series haven't had a new game in years, and yet, people are still talking about them.
Meh.

That's the point, they haven't had a new game in years, I guess I should've said sorta but I knew some one would say something |:T

Well, yeah, but they're still pretty much one of the 'classics' in gaming. There were so many Megaman games on the DS...

I guess compared to other big series they haven't done as much recently, though.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
I think I've already stated my love for you many times but I can't express it enough.

On that note, Medievil and several arcade games I can think of right off the bat (liiiiiike Libble Rabble, Tower of Druaga, Toypop, Yokai Dochuuki) hardly get enough attention imo.

This list will probably be bad. This is also based on the games I personally own and played.
