Top 10 Underrated Video Game Exclusives that are Also Absolute Must-Plays for Their Systemsxandermartin98
The Top Ten
As far as standard role-playing games go, this might officially be THE deepest storyline of the genre.
The art style and animation are absolutely jaw-droppingly executed for the time as well, and Xenoblade would not have existed without this - xandermartin98
Classic Resident Evil meets Classic Silent Hill, and in the absolute best (albeit clunkiest) way possible - xandermartin98
Mario meets Devil May Cry meets Tetris Attack, with a hearty swig of Professor Layton - xandermartin98
If you ever wanted a game that proves that the Wiimote-and-Nunchuk control scheme actually CAN work for first-person shooters, this is it.
Also, Hypermode makes you feel like such a badass - xandermartin98
Parappa The Rapper meets Guitar Hero meets Rocko's Modern Life (unlike PTR, by the way, this game was one of the ACTUAL inventors and precursors of Guitar Hero)
Also, it's a better game than PTR 1 and 2 in nearly every single way possible and has one of the most absolutely hilarious storylines to ever grace video games, so there's that too - xandermartin98
I will never understand why this game got hated on so much for using the "dark world" cliche when Zelda gets so much praise for it.
Case in point, this is a MUCH more challenging and fleshed-out (albeit often annoyingly artificially so) game than its predecessor, even if the story isn't as memorable and the save point placement isn't as convenient - xandermartin98
Kirby meets Mega Man X meets Gurren Lagann
Enough said - xandermartin98
And now for a game that actually CAN be described as having a story as deep as multiple Mariana Trenches stacked on top of each other; Undertale, eat your little red heart out - xandermartin98
What Parappa 2 should have been, honestly.
I haven't played it myself, but if the fact that this game is basically Um Jammer Lammy IN SPACE ARMOR and with massively improved gameplay mechanics doesn't immediately scream "awesome" to you, you've clearly never played or even seen UJL yourself, and I feel bad for you - xandermartin98
Personally, I've played far better examples of this genre in terms of gameplay myself (Metroidvania and Cave Story immediately come to mind), but this is yet another game on this list that is easily worth playing for the story alone, which is especially shocking coming from a Mario game of all things - xandermartin98
Yes. - MarioBros11
