Most Underrated Video Game Franchises


The Top Ten

1 Lego

The first game franchise I ever played

Kinda boring though. You just build stuff and if you die you respawn where you were killed - Ilikegames

I Guess - VideoGamefan5

2 Azure Striker Gunvolt

The fact that this franchise is from the same guys who brought you Mighty No. 9, the most disappointing game ever made doesn't mean it's bad. - PerfectImpulseX

3 Bomberman

Yeah - VideoGamefan5

4 Chibi-Robo
5 Klonoa
6 Viva Pinata
7 Virtual On
8 Resident Evil

Not Really Underrated As Many People Like It But I Would Say The 5th Installment In The Main series Is Underrated - VideoGamefan5

9 Driver
10 Tekken

The Contenders

11 Pokemon

Should be in the top 5. - PageEmperor

12 Golden Sun
13 Pac-Man World
14 Gundam Battle Assault
15 Mother
16 Gran Turismo
17 Gundam Vs.
18 Choro Q
19 Kirby

People hate kirby because it's so easy. I say, true arena without stone. This series is really overshadowed by the milkers: Mario and Pokemon. I feel bad. Why should pikachu get a macy's balloon when kirby makes more sense? Plus, it would make so much money for Nintendo; Pokemon already has enough. Oh kirby, how not unloved, but unfortunately underrated you are.

It’s a good game - Ilikegames

How the heck is pokémon higher than kirby? Heck, how is pokémon even on this list? If anything pokémon is overrated. Though I'm not sure if "underrated" is the right word to put kirby. The franchise doesn't really receive a lot of hate. Only a few people criticize kirby. The series is also one of Nintendo's most popular franchises. A lot of people seem to like it too. However, the series is often overshadowed by others such as Mario or pokémon. Mario isn't overrated though. Mario's the best video game franchise ever, it deserves all of the popularity it gets. I don't really think kirby's "underrated" per se, but it does deserve more popularity.

20 Sakura Wars
21 The Getaway
22 SpongeBob Games

I would not call these games as a whole "underrated", but somewhat more underappreciated.

23 Burnout
24 Colin McRae
25 Pikmin

It's kinda insulting how many people ignore this video game. I grew up with this game. My brother thinks it's overrated. He plays Smash.

26 Metroid
27 Tales Of Series
28 Just Cause
29 PaRappa the Rapper
30 Phoenix Wright

A great franchise, unfortunately VERY underrated. Need more love and recognition - AzkaNesia

31 Portal
32 Fire Emblem
33 Splinter Cell
34 F-Zero

Easily the most badass racing game ever. - xandermartin98

35 Castlevania
36 Sly Cooper
37 Star Wars Battlefront
39 Silent Hill
40 Oddworld
41 Super Smash Bros.

Whoever Says Smash Is Underrated Is Dumb - VideoGamefan5

43 Bubsy
44 Animal Crossing
45 Team Fortress Classic
46 Destiny
47 Grandia
48 Arcana Heart
