6 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


This game is so hard :/ - peyman_eun

8 Lisa: The Painful RPG

10 Dust: An Elysian Tale

Just a pretty nice game! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Contenders

11 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

12 Kerbal Space Program

So much fun to mess around with! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

13 Freedom Planet
14 Stardew Valley

Jesus, this is an amazing game.

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 Guacamelee!

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