The Top Ten

1 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

Deserved bigger publicity. Great konquest mode and interesting story - Magnolia

2 The X-Files: Resist or Serve The X-Files: Resist or Serve

Not just fans of The X-Files would like it. Everyone must check on this game. Yes, it's a bit hard - Magnolia

3 Xena: Warrior Princess Xena: Warrior Princess

Surprisingly great game. Its first release was in 1999 but then it was made for Game Boy Color in 2001 and PlayStation 2 in 2006 - Magnolia

4 Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

Nice 3rd person shooter. Many great characters are in (except for Leon) - Magnolia

5 Metro 2033 Metro 2033

Criminally underrated and overlooked! Love this game so much! - Magnolia

I still can't forget its atmosphere. Fantastic experience! - Magnolia

My favourite survival horror game ever

It is honestly the scariest game I've played to this day

9 Mission: Impossible – Operation Surma Mission: Impossible – Operation Surma

It had some "flaws", I don't deny that but I like it! - Magnolia

10 Metro: Last Light Metro: Last Light

One of my fave games of 2013. Should've been a hit! - Magnolia

The Contenders

11 Dust 514

This 1st person shooter was decent, not superb but entertaining enough - Magnolia

12 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead

I know this is reasonably popular, but I still think that it's underrated

13 Spec Ops: The Line Spec Ops: The Line

This is the saddest and most devastating game ever. It really broke me emotionally. I wish more people played it, it was really good!
