3 Undertale

Underrated? I've never seen a game that gets as much praise as this one. I really like Undertale, but it gets waay to much love. Like, does this game really need 1000+ shipping charts? - Dawscr

Uh that's debatable.

Undertale is dying, folks.
Please... Sans... MAKE MORE MEMES! More SAAANEEESS! The famous character should legit be doing something to help out...
I wish Undertale didn't surprisingly start dying 2 years later... ;(

GUYS.
(Breaths in deeply) YALL NEED SOME MALK.
THIS GAME BE DYING, FOLKS!
UNDERTALE NEEDS SOME MALK.
EVEN though THE FANDOM IS A WARGROUND WITH SANS AS THE TOP CHARACTER IN EVERY FANFIC, (they need some chocolate malk) THE GAME ITSELF IS DYING OFF ALONGSIDE FNAF AND (probably) TATTLETAIL. ;( MY favorite SERIES IS GOING DOWN! NOO!
My caps is not broke, by the way
Funny. people put Undertale on overrated and underrated.
Makes perfect SANS, huh?

4 Bastion

My personal favorite Indie game, still does'nt get enough attention! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

5 FTL: Faster Than Light

One of those strategy games for real men, with insane difficulty! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6 The Binding of Isaac

Do you like The Legend of Zelda? If your answer is yes, try this game. - Martinglez

9 Braid

The story is pretty mind blowing and the timeshifting gameplay is so much fun! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

10 Cave Story

I played the demo for this a lot for some reason. I have never gotten around to playing the actual game, though. I never see it talked about. I really enjoyed the demo. - Dawscr

I think Cave story should get this because it's a game made by scratch and it's really underrated I see allot of other like gaming videos of other games and they have more views than the Cave Story lets plays and stuff I don't know but I think cave story deserves this one <3 -Strange Koops

The Contenders

11 Stardew Valley

Jesus, this is an amazing game.

12 Dust: An Elysian Tale

Just a pretty nice game! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

13 Freedom Planet
14 Kerbal Space Program

So much fun to mess around with! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

15 Axiom Verge

This and AM2R have pretty much officially rendered Cave Story obsolete if you ask me - xandermartin98

16 Iji
17 Another Metroid 2 Remake
18 Starbound
19 Guacamelee!

Not that underrated anymore, but still one of my Indie favorites! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

20 Amnesia: Machine of Pigs
21 Megaman Sprite Game
22 Furi

I great bullet hell action game - Sibel

23 Mother Russia Bleeds

A fun beat em up - Sibel

24 Tattletail

Nobody appreciates this game to its full value ;( it's a unique game spinning off from the horror element with a slight pinch of... mystery..? Honestly, this is my #1 choice, 2 being Undertale and 3 being Hello Neighbor. Seriously, agree or not, this game is really underrated...

25 Hello Neighbor
26 Death Road to Canada

Oregon trail game, but you must make it to Canada through a zombie-infested USA. The graphics fit the silly feel of the game, and you can make your friends in the game with unike traits and abilities that can appear and you can recruit. There's tons of events, and the music is really catchy. Abilities and character customization is really big. There's abilities like recruiting dogs, loving anime, frantically whining, etc. There's also rare characters; they sometimes appear and are usually based off of something in pop culture or video games, such as L*nk. They have crazy abilities and weapons, which add onto how charming this game is. The game has really good humor, ending up in really memorable moments.
