Top 10 Most Underrated Video Games of the 21st Century


The Top Ten

1 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

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

2 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

3 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

4 Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

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

5 Metro 2033

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

One thing makes it amazing "the atmosphere"

6 Cave Story
7 Alien: Isolation

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

8 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

Creepy! Awesome game! Check on it! - Magnolia

9 Mission: Impossible – Operation Surma

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

10 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

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

13 Undertale

If you think this is underrated you haven't used the Internet in a while...

14 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!

15 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

I agree, the music is nice and Silver is pretty awesome, although is boss fight is kinda annoying.

Not a good game but WAY too overhated. Give it a rest people, it's getting old.

16 XenoBlade Chronicles
17 Luigi's Mansion
18 Xenosaga
19 Xenogears
20 Arcana Hearts 3
21 Okami
22 Shadow Hearts: Covenant
23 Sin & Punishment: Star Successor
24 Valdis Story: Abyssal City
25 Timesplitters: Future Perfect
26 Star Ocean: The Last Hope
27 Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria
28 Grandia III
29 Star Fox Assault

Hated only because of the on-foot missions by picky fans.
Honestly this is my favourite Star Fox game after Lylat Wars.
