Most Underrated Video Games

21Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3
22Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty

This is a really great list, but I feel that everyone hated MGS 2 because of Raiden but they didn't understand why Kojima did this ON PURPOSE. He meant for you to hate him so you can see him grow up from being an annoying brat to someone nearly comparable to Snake. Here you have a fantastic character development and new intuitive gameplay mechanics such as first-person aiming, not to mention stunning visuals. Also, Raiden helps people see just how epic Snake is. Maybe the story was really complex, but overall this game deserved way more love than all the ignorant hate it gets, but this is only my opinion. - Zeebs

The problem that absolutely killed this game for most MGS fans is that you play as Raiden most of the game, and because of that most people decide that they don't like it before they've even really given it a chance - ChickenKing

Hideo knew that if he included raiden on the cover it wouldn't sell as good

23The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

People may worship this game now, but it deserves as much acclaim as Ocarina of Time, aged better, and would have changed the outcome of the franchise for the better if it wasn't met with so much rage at the time for its graphics.

It was underrated back then, now it's just rated. - Keb

24Super Princess Peach
25The Itchy and Scratchy Game
26Kirby Air Ride

I'm pretty sure Conner The Waffle on YouTube said this is the most underrated game ever

A fun racing game that really lets you play to your fullest potential. COME ON Nintendo. MAKE A SSB STYLE GAME. EXCEPT WITH RACING.

27Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Wonderful game! Greatest Mario Game of all time! Too bad that the Nintendo 64 and Super Mario 64 overshadowed it, so it only sold about 1. 4 million copies worldwide. If you find it though, like on eBay, a yard sale, or used game store, then get it!

I don't understand why people harp at this game so often. It's very engaging for an RPG, has the best graphics on a SNES games, a story so compelling you'd actually care about Mario, a lot of depth, plenty of sidequests, many characters with their own stories, and for once; THE WHOLE GAME ISN'T ABOUT SAVING PRINCESS PEACH! This is a game that people definitely need to take a bit more seriously.

Sweetest RPG on SNES. Not the best, as they're overshadowed by Chrono Trigger, FFVI and some more, but still it's the sweetest. How's that? Lovely graphics, great music, many jokes that will make you laugh out loud all the time, nice combat system, and more. - Igurusama
