Top 10 Underrated Video Games Overshadowed by Highly Overrated Ones


The Top Ten

1 Chrono Cross (Chrono Trigger)

I wouldn't call Chrono Trigger overrated, at least in my eyes, but Chrono Cross is totally underrated, that I agree 100%! - cjWriter1997

Oh Look Another List From Xandermartin98 That Has Overrated In The Name, (Yawn) - VideoGamefan5

2 Halo: ODST (Halo 4)

Halo 3: ODST was much better - EliHbk

3 Super Mario Sunshine (Super Mario Galaxy)

Neither Of Them Are Underrated Or Overrated! - VideoGamefan5

THis is a joke right

4 Crash Nitro Kart (Super Mario Kart)
5 Xenogears (Final Fantasy VII and Xenoblade Chronicles)
6 Dead or Alive 2 (Tekken 3)
7 Umjammer Lammy (Parappa the Rapper)
8 Crash Bandicoot 2 (Crash Bandicoot 3)

I wouldn't call Crash 2 underrated. Crash Twinsanity deserves that title - purpleyoshi98

9 Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (Superstar Saga and Bowser's Inside Story)

Partners in Time had its issues and I wouldn't call BIS overrated, that game is amazing. - DCfnaf

10 Grand Theft Auto III (Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V)

IV had barely anything to do in it. V improved on it a ton, but it still feels lacking when compared to the 3D era games. - Dominicmgm

The Contenders

11 Kaiser Knuckle (Street Fighter II)
12 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina 0f Time)

In my opinion, it's not as good as Ocarina of Time, but it was certainly overshadowed by it.

How is Ocarina of Time overrated?

31 Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity (Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky)

Please no more "Explorers of Sky is the best"

Um conker's bad fur day isn't underrated, people love this game

33 Half-Life (Half-Life 2)
34 Sonic 3 & Knuckles (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
