Most Underrated Video Games of 2013


The Top Ten

1 Metro Last Light

This game was just mediocre in my opinion. After about half of the game trying to be as stealthy as I could, I suddenly realized that the stealth was just optional. Literally. You could go through most of the game just throwing pipe bombs and spraying bullets. Graphics I don't even care about. PlayStation plus put this on their free games list, and you know almost every game on that list has at least one fatal flaw.

Amazing game! Very underrated, must play for the sheer experience and quality of FPS.

The most immersive game I have played and experienced. A very moving story about loss and hopelessness told from a unique perspective. Highly underrated game!

Although many people hated this game, I loved it so much. - dabiel

2 Saints Row IV

No, this sucked horribly! Unless you like superpowers, but this game is way worse than Metro Last Light. - EliHbk

Eh it was ok definitely no where near as good as Grand Theft Auto 5

Ignored because Theft Auto V come's out

3 Pokemon X

The Last Of us Is awesome but this is just as good. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Gen 6 got just the right love it deserves. Period. - Epicsauce45

Not the best game ever, but it's an awesome game!

Even though its not my fave gen, it's still good.the other games this year ar leaving this game in a shadow...

4 Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

Why isn't this game number 1? This game is VERY underrated.

I like stealth. I like platformers. I think this should be higher on the list, great new entry in classic series.


5 Aliens: Colonial Marines

This is the best game ever on the wii!

6 Crysis 3

This game wasn't all about the graphics. It actually had a fair story line and pretty cool gameplay mechanics. But not in my top 10 by far.

This is the most underrated game in history. This game won best graphics award and its gameplay is astonishing. Vote for it guys

Direct x 11 wasnt a good idea

Aliens sucked horribly but Crysis 3 was amazing in so many ways the graphics, the fact that its AI isn't compete and total garbage mixed in with poop.

7 Sonic Lost World

Most underrated game what is the complaint sonic is too slow well ign thinks they need to rush through the levels yes it doesn't need to be a million miles per hour -

This game recieves WAY too much hate. People hate on this game for stupid reasons such as Sonic being slower. Um... no... Sonic's speed matches the speed in Sonic Adventure. Also, the boost formula was removed. I am actually glad. The boost was getting REALLY old.

It's not the best sonic game, or even the best 3d sonic game, it deserves love - PPPPPPINGAS

This is my 5th favorite sonic game - Hiiii

8 BEYOND: Two Souls

A hit or miss game for many but is a hell of an experience and should be at least appreciated

This game has a beautiful story and it should be on the top ten video games of 2013 list.

I give this game 9/10

Love you jodie...

Although a PS3 only title, it still has one of the best experiences you can find in a video game.

9 Batman: Arkham Origins

People like to pick it apart for it's similarities to the pervious game 'Arkham City', as well as the technical problems the game suffers from, but it still was a good game, especially compared to what happened with Arkham Knight.

Not only the most underrated of 2013, Maybe of all time, I mean come on, 6.5 on gamespot? Why arkham asylum and city are so praised and this are so forgotten?

10 Super Mario 3D World

I recommend this more than Call of Duty. This game is very magical, the levels are so detailed, and it has my favorite level in all of the Mario games. I give this game 9.9/10. The only bad thing is the camera but that doesn't matter. - recaller

I don't really think this is underrated but it's a great game! recommended go and buy it it's the best mario game! - Ace8

This is underrated. Everyone hates wii you Mario games just because they have lower graphics. I don't care about the graphics,

I love Super Mario 3D World for the same reasons you said you do, recaller.

11 Injustice: Gods Among Us

Love the game.. - lm10sd10

I played the demo of Injustice: Gods Among Us, and it was awesome! The game plays similar to Mortal Kombat (a game that I also love), the game was made by NetherRealm Studios so it's no wonder. My mind was blown after seeing their special moves. As a DC fan, this is definitely a game you must buy if you are DC fan.

This game was awesome it has so much awesome things to do and unlock.

This isn't really overrated but it is AWESOME

12 StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm
13 Dead Island: Riptide

This has Improved on the first game and still is a lot of fun to play.

Cheesy game, don't buy this... please! - EliHbk

14 Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus
15 Remember Me

The game shows a lot of potential. Although, it could have been a lot better if DONTNOD made the game open world, better camera angles, and fighting mechanics...

16 Fire Emblem Awakening

It should be on the top 20 games ever, at LEAST.

Why isn't this game even in the top 10 most underrated games of 2013, let alone not in the top 10 games of 2013. Gameplay is great, story is fascinating, and cutscenes are amazing. The only problem is that there are so few of them.

The Whole series is underrated

This game is actually amazing! I bought it on a whim thinking that it will be another crappy strategy game I don't even like strategy! But as soon as I started playing I was instantly hooked the graphics cutscenes and gameplay is outstanding and so well thought out! Definitely the best 3ds title out there or possibly beyond!

17 Dust 514
18 Tomb Raider
19 Pro Evolution Soccer 2014
20 DeadPool
21 Grand Theft Auto V

How on earth is this underrated. A score above 9 is not considered underrated. This game was also overhyped.



22 SimCity
23 The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
24 Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3

I think this is the most underrated video game ever actually. - RalphBob

25 Call of Duty: Ghosts

If a game is widely considered overrated, then it would be underrated.

Underrated. B*tch please. This game is not underrated at all.though it can be called the second most underrated and overrated Call of Duty after Call of Duty 3 but underrated no sir definitely not

26 The Stanley Parable


27 Outlast
28 Quantum Break

The game just looks so awesome and it's from Remedy! And Remedy if someone knows how to make awesome games!

29 Wargame: Airland Battle
30 Battlefield 4
31 WWE 2K14

Why is Grand Theft Auto 5 on here.

32 The Wonderful 101

This game is criminally underrated it's so much god damn fun it's funny and very epic with its amazing soundtrack play this game

Better than OoT

33 Lego City Undercover


34 Rayman Legends
35 Sonic Dash
