Top 10 Underrated Video Games from Overrated Series


The Top Ten

1 Earthbound Zero

True, but Earthbound is more overrated compared to Earthbound Zero & Mother 3.

Great game, but Earthbound is not overrated

It's Mother, and Earthbound is awesome. - KingofHoundooms

*Earthbound Beginnings. - LarkwingFlight

2 Tales From The Borderlands

Whoever made this list deserves to get sense smacked into them. If anything, the FIRST game is underrated. Though the second was received too well in my opinion, as it ruined what was good about the first. - TwillyFSniper

Do people even know what overrated means anymore - ONHOLIDAY

THIS GAME IS AWESOME! - lukemcnamara72

3 Halo 3: ODST

Great game, it is often overshadowed by halo 3.

4 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

I don't liked storyline like in grand theft auto: san andreas, this is more worse than Grand Theft Auto san andreas

It goes like this, I look up Mystery Dungeon, and people usually just go EXPLORERS OF SKY for the win! I feel like Red after that.

This game is terrible! And Pokemon Mystery Dungeon isn't overrated! - Frouze

Underrated series, actually. - TwillyFSniper

5 UmJammer Lammy

Easily the best game of the Parappa series - xandermartin98

6 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

What... How is this underrated? Not saying it's overrated but really?

I don't really think it is underrated. It gets the right amount of praise. - Dawscr

How is this underrated?

7 The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Why does nobody talks about this?

One of my first Zelda games. - shawnmccaul22

8 Super Mario Sunshine

But Mario's Popularity Is A Good Thing

Mario's popularity isn't, it kinda is due to all of the Call of Duty and Sonic hate on this website. - DCfnaf

Unless it's the best game of all time in your opinion, it should probably not be here. - TwillyFSniper

This game is loved by the fan base! It doesn't belong here!

9 Sonic Unleashed

How is Sonic overrated when 9/10 of the fan base hate his games! Anyways, this game is definitely overhated!

What? Everyone hates Sonic now! Mario fans hate Sonic and even his own fans hate him. But I love him and this game. - DCfnaf

One Of The More Rare (Along With Colors And Generations)Actually Good Sonic Games
Ever Since Sonic 06 Came Out

How about the Classic Sonic (platformer) games?

Although I, Kieran Stark agree that Sonic Unleashed is truly underrated. STOP HATING THE WEREHOG BUSINESS, PLEASE! EXTRA VARIETY for the win!

10 Mega Man 7

Mega Man 7 is one of the most underrated video games ever.

Mega Man 7's latest predecessors could be for the SNES!

And you are right in my opinion. Classic Mega Man is really underrated, especially Mega Man 5 and Mega Man 8's successors! These games make me feel like a badass!

The Contenders

11 Sonic Shuffle
12 Max Payne 3
13 The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
14 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
15 Final Fantasy V

This game is overrated...

How is this underrated? AFTER I PLAYED IT FOR AN HOUR, I NEVER PLAYED IT AGAIN. It was so awful. - TwillyFSniper

16 Pokemon Platinum
17 Call of Duty: Ghosts

Nah this game sucks

18 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Why do so many people hate this game!? Sure, there are some mechanics that are annoying, but the game isn't bad in any sense!

Yet another OVERRATED game on this list. Read the dictionary once in a while. - TwillyFSniper

19 Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

I found the game really good. - TwillyFSniper

20 Half-Life
21 Call of Duty 3

This game was super fun. I loved it.

22 Super Smash Bros. 64

I like how you have to UPVOTE to comment. That needs to be fixxed. Anyways, SSB64 is actually an OVERRATED game honestly. - TwillyFSniper

23 Luigi's Mansion
24 Halo Reach

Huh, is it? Well, I love Reach. It's a great game.

25 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
26 Metal Gear Solid 2
27 Resident Evil 5

Great co-op

28 Mario Kart 7
29 Resident Evil 6

Everyone please vote it. It’s really awesome. - Undistinguished

30 Mario Kart 8

No it's loved by many. - DCfnaf

31 Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
32 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
33 Star Fox Assault

I only hope the next Star Fox game is based off this one and not another 64 rehash.

34 Hotel Mario

This is not underrated. Because they made lotsa spaghetti.

35 Super Paper Mario
36 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

San Andreas and V are overrated, and IV is just boring. - Dominicmgm

37 Halo 4
38 Pokemon Black/White
39 Bioshock 2
40 Sonic Advance
41 Sonic Heroes

This game isn't hated anymore! It is the only Dreamcast era game to age well to today's standards! It doesn't belong on this list anymore!

42 Sonic 3 & Knuckles

The only Classic Sonic game on this list. >:(

43 Undertale

1. It's not a series
2. It's not underrated no matter how much you like it

It's from the Earthbound series and is actually pretty underrated compared to Earthbound and Mother 3, so I'd say it counts. - xandermartin98


even the 0.000000000000001% of the world which doesn't know this game knows its overrated!

44 Xenoblade Chronicles
45 Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival
46 Am2r: Return of Samus

Easily the best 2D Metroid game, not counting Super Metroid hacks. - xandermartin98

47 Halo 5: Guardians
48 Chrono Cross

YES. - TwillyFSniper

49 Castlevania: Bloodlines
50 Wario Ware: Smooth Moves!
