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

3 Halo 3: ODST

Great game, it is often overshadowed by halo 3.

4 UmJammer Lammy

Easily the best game of the Parappa series - xandermartin98

5 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?

6 The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

One of my first Zelda games. - shawnmccaul22

Why does nobody talks about this?

7 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

... why is this here again? - BigTree

8 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!

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

10 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

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

This is about number 1 of WM's list of the best underrated video game of all time?! this game is very quickly.

The Contenders
