Most Underrated Video Games


The Contenders: Page 9XW

162Mini Ninjas
163Pac-Man World

Not only that, but one of the most underrated games period.

Why can't people love this story? Pac-Man's family gets kidnapped by Toc-Man. How cool is that? (Sorry, I do not want to sound like a jerk. ) Pac-Man rescues his friends and family! How creative! This game is very creative for real. And the characters! How can you hate them?! They're all perfect!

GRAPHICS: 25/10.
This video game has the best graphics of all time. It's no bore at all. Best graphics in a video game! Oh my god... it is such a revolution and the cousin of Super Mario 64 (for the N64), the best video game of all time. There's nothing I don't like about these marvellous level backgrounds that remind us of what's outside of Mall of America.

MUSIC: 25/10.
I especially love the World 3 music. No flaw at all in the classic music. Come to think of it, this game is the best video game of all time besides Super Mario 64.

CONTROLS: 10+/10.
Ah, the unbroken PS1. It ...more

164Super Mario Galaxy 2

Whoever put Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the list is a pissant.

169Syphon Filter 2

seriously, syphon filter games are really under-rated - Razor79

Syphon filter is pretty overlooked.


Holy crap. I just have to say that this game is way to underrated. - Yebet321

Underrated like CRAZY! It is almost better than Minecraft and the graphics
are the BEST! It is sad that many people dosen't even know about this
awesome game. IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!

172System Shock 2

Revolutionary graphics for it's time, and I don't know anyone who's played it except me. Awesome storyline, Foreboding Atmosphere, lots of action, 100% badass. Everything a sci-fi fan could hope for. PLAY IT.


Great, Involving RTS. Totally rare and underrated. - Celidor

174Need for Speed: Undercover
175Mortal Kombat Deception

amazing but very underrated mk game. It was the first mk game where all characters had their own voices. PLUS superb creative fatalities, wonderful konquest mode, Hara-Kiri etc - Magnolia

This game blew just about every other fighter away at the time of it's release. The Mortal Kombat series showed that fighting games could be so much more than just fighting games during the early and mid 2000's, and dragged the rest of the gerne kicking and screaming with it into new heights. The MK dev team have always thought outside of the box and have rarely ever gotten the credit (and respect) they deserve. So yeah, the 3D Mortal Kombat games are criminally underrated and more than half of the reasons given for why they're "bad" don't even make sense.

176Shadow The Hedgehog

Somehow I feel the people that hate this game are either A) hating solely for the edginess, or B) making the game boring without even realizing it!

Shadow the hedgehog is overrated

To those of you that say this game sucks, face it people! This game has aged rather well! Even youtuber Cobanermani456 admits he doesn't like the game, yet he agrees that this game gets way too much hate!

177Radiation's Halloween Hack

As much as I love Undertale, I REALLY want to see an Undertale VERSION of this game, starring Alphys as Dr. Andonuts. In fact, I even wrote a fanfiction for this idea. - xandermartin98


Overrated by its fanbase, but deserves vastly more respect from the general public. Pretty much the same hype situation that happened with Rocko's Modern Life before it. - xandermartin98

Is this an underrated or an overrated list?
