Top 10 Actually Underrated Things About Overrated Video Games

The Top Ten

1 Its overall potential as a competitive fighter (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

My first fighting game, I spent hours a day for months learning how to truly play

2 The Character Roster (Mario Kart 8)

But actually, the roster was pretty much crap. I mean seriously? Pink Gold Peach? Baby Rosalina?

The roster? Half the roster is filler. Mostly the people you need to have in the roster and clones of them. What's next, Silver Green Luigi?

3 The Sailing Mechanic (Zelda: The Wind Waker)
4 Alphys' Backstory Regarding The Amalgamates (Undertale)
5 The Characters (Cave Story)
6 The Mask Transformations (Zelda: Majora's Mask)
7 The Try-Hard, Overly Edgy Art Style (Zelda: Twilight Princess)
8 The Storyline (Xenoblade Chronicles)
9 Robin (Super Smash Bros. 4)

Worst character in the game my eye! I successfully brought down an arrogant online Bayonetta (the alleged "best" character in the game) player with Robin. Granted, it wasn't "for glory" and there were two other people, but I-Robin still placed first and Psychonetta was FOURTH! Lucky for that player they couldn't hear me gleefully singing "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead", though they did hear Robin say "Ha! Checkmate! "

Anyone who wants to argue this, play the Miiverse stage as Robin. I dare you.

The "Best Playable Characters In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS" list doesn't even acknowledge his/her existence!

10 Adam Howden's Voice Acting Performance As Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles)

The Contenders

11 The Soundtrack (Earthbound)
12 The Soundtrack (Xenoblade Chronicles)

The soundtrack of the game is undeniably the best soundtrack - of any game - I've ever heard. And yes, it is painfully underrated.

13 Shoe Power-Up (Super Mario Bros. 3)

This was actually a prototype for Yoshi.

14 Dark Pit (Kid Icarus: Uprising) Dark Pit (Kid Icarus: Uprising)
15 The "Anju & Kafei" Sidequest (Zelda: Majora's Mask)
16 Pink Gold Peach (Mario Kart 8)

Agreed - ThatOneRacer

17 Otacon (Metal Gear Solid)
18 The Online Play (Mario Kart 8)

I love it so much!

19 The Iron Mettagiant (Undertale)
20 The Us Soundtrack (Sonic CD)
21 The Fanbase (Undertale)

You're kidding, right? The fanbase is what outs people off of this game.

22 Mega Man (Super Smash Bros. 4)

The best third party character and the one that makes the most sense (yes, even over Sonic). Too bad everyone's too busy worshiping Bayonetta and Cloud, not only among the third party characters but over the entire rest of the roster.

23 The Character Roster (F-Zero)
24 The Soundtrack (Sonic 2006)
25 The Soundtrack (Cave Story)
26 Every Weapon That Isn't Metal Blade (Mega Man 2)
27 The Level Editor (Little Big Planet)
28 Custom Tracks (Mario Kart Wii)
29 The Dr. Andonuts Mind-Entry Segment (Radiation's Halloween Hack)
30 The Fanbase (Sonic)

Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. ...read more.
