Most Underrated Video Gameswalker820 Games you probably havent heard of -
and probably should check out.
The Top Ten
This list is one of the worst crafted lists that I had ever seen. I take it that most of the people that found this list don't get what the word UNDERRATED means. Since when had mario, pokemon, star wars, zelda, or call of duty ever been underrated? Those are all among the most OVERRATED things out there. Seeing any game from those franchises on this list is as stupid as seeing justin bieber and several other overrated singers on the list of most underrated singers. If this list were highly consistent to the title of this list, then Ristar, Alex Kidd, Tumblepop, and Beyond Good & Evil would at least be in the top 20 part of this list. It's nice to know that Kinetica is. As for Sonic 06, it's not that many people don't know about it. It's that many people want to pretend that abomination does not exist. Only the most die-hard sonic fans would like that game. If such glitches had been part of a non-sonic game, like Big Rigs, no one would want to know that game even exists.
Don't take these lists too seriously man. Most of the users on here are 11-14 year olds. - JamesNicholls
Played this game when I was younger, and still come back to it. The gameplay is tight, the story is pretty solid, the music is really good, the boss fights are pretty epic, and you get to run around Bikini bottom and the surrounding areas that you saw in the show. This game is criminally underrated. Go buy it, play it, and be happy.
I don't think the age of most of the users on this list is a good excuse for the problems of this list. A number of the games on this list were made before any 11, 14 or( in some cases)20 year olds existed. That big comment does make a point. For any mario game to be on this list is just dumb. A number of non-mario platformers are underrated compared to mario. I think the mario games on this list were placed by people of dumb favoritism. The mario hype should not make every non-mario platformer irrelevant. That series is just plain overrated.
I remember playing this game. it's actually very fun, and although it's not the best game ever, it has a very creative concept and design. Criminally underrated.V 17 Comments
Almost everyone with a Gamecube has this...
Ok listen if there was one game that is very underrated it's this one first of all great story line. Second, I always like playing with luigi and when I first beat the game I rebuilt a horrible mansion and I was like "well this stinks." So I started this whole game over to make an awesome one which I did. Third who didn't like the awesome boss battles and at the end with Bowser-King Boo, so much fun I think this should be in the top 3.
Aaah! Please don't remind me of DEPRESSED LUIGI! AY! - Chaofreaks1
Ahhh. I used to play this on my GameCube - SoloPotatoV 2 Comments
This game is so bad. It destroyed the sonic franchise.
I like Sonic the way it is. I'm sick of everyone bashing him for no reason. Spoiler alert: THINGS CHANGE. - DCfnaf
To the person that said "good, but a lot of people don't know about it", that is the definition of overlooked. This is underrated, which consists of games that get too much hate and games that get overlooked. Sonic 06 is well known, but it fits the over hated portion of underrated! It's a bad game, but way too many people call it unplayable (it is playable. Free Riders is unplayable! At least 06 can function properly when it's not glitchy, but Free Riders is almost completely unfunctional due to its unresponsive rate being way worse than 06's glitch rate! )
I think this game is underrated because I bought it and actually enjoyed it. I got really curious about it I'm a die-hard Sonic fan and whenever I hear this game get flag, the more and more I thought about it. Shadow The Hedgehog got flag, and I liked that game. I finally looked up some footage on Youtube and that's when I decided to buy it for my Xbox 360. I actually liked the game, my review of it is an 8.6/10.
It's not that bad of a gameV 29 Comments
Why Does Everyone Hate This Game? I Like It. It's A Very Underrated Game. It Deserves More Respect.
I remember playing this game when I was younger and recently found it and started playing it again. It's one of the best Mario games, if not the best. Mimi still terrifies me though...
Everything about this game is underrated, from the gameplay to the music. It is probably my favorite Mario game of all time.
God I love this game. My 2nd favorite mario gameV 5 Comments
I love this game!
I used to play this all the time when I was a kid - XtremeNerdz12
Reply to the person who claimed Mario games have no story: Mario games didn't focus on the story, they were more focused on the level design and buildup of level difficulty. And why are they still good? Because the Mario series does a good job at giving the player a challenge as they progress throughout the games levels. Another example of a misjudgment of a game. Because a game's plot doesn't always matter.
This game is really fun! So what if it was Doki Doki Panic? Do you think the USA wants a near duplicate version of Super Mario Bros. For Super Mario Bros. 2? I got Super Mario Bros. 2 Japan from the virtual console and I made it to the THIRD level.
This was one of my first games and I'll always have a special spot for it, I thought it was a good game that, stepped away from traditional Mario and succeeded, why vegetables, no Bowser, stop complaining and play you'll like it. Don't get how it is one of the worst.
Almost voted for majora's mak, but I thought it at least had some respect in the game world.
, this is so underrated, people say it's bad just because it's not a Mario game but there are good games that aren't mario like the lego gamesV 8 Comments
This was the only reason I had a SNES. Don't get me wrong, it had great games, but I liked the genesis better. However, nothing compares to earthbound. This was in my opinion the best game of the fourth generation. I had it when I was nine, and still play it to this day. If you haven't played it yet, I strongly suggest you do. If you're into RPG's, you'll automatically like it.
Alright, this game is downright awesome. I only discovered it recently, but I'm glad I did. EarthBound is my favourite video game because of it's quirky characters, interesting plot, and the enemies. Oh, the enemies. I can only hope you'll give this gem of a game a play.
How is this game underrated? By all accounts the game is a masterpiece. People don't know what they're even voting for anymore. - Xean45
One of my first role playing gamesV 18 Comments
Starfox is really underrated, this game was my childhood. The only reason some people know it is because of Super Smash Brothers. I love this game and if you haven't checked it out you really should.
This is what Zero should've been based off of.
I loved the multiplayer on this I would play it over and over and over just to unlock everything definitely underrated
I never really saw this game as underrated really, but I guess you're not wrong. - TwillyFSniperV 3 Comments
I can't believe this: we're on a list of the most underrated and overlooked games ever, and Mario and Zelda STILL get the top spots. Why? Because they're so huge that I'm willing to bet Super Mario Bros. 2, Luigi's Mansion, and Majora's Mask are the ONLY "underrated" games many of the people have played. Pac Man World 2 is among the epitome of underrated - it starred a well-known figure, was adored by fans and critics, and nobody knew it existed, and wouldn't often give it a chance anyway. Don't be one of those guys: Pac Man World 2 was easily one of the best platformers in its generation, with fun graphics, an amazing soundtrack, brilliant design, and six unlockable previous Pac Man Games. It may not be as good as games like Disgaea and Beyond Good and Evil, but it's so little-known that it's not even featured on lists of good little-known games! Don't pass this one up.
No other game on this list has truly stuck out to me as much as Pac-Man World 2. I love this game to death, and it saddens me that many people overlook this game. Great Graphics, Phenomenal Music, Stellar Level Design, Cool Levels, Epic Boss Fights, an Aracde; seriously! How is this game so overlooked? Buy this game this instant. It's truly fantastic.
This game was my childhood. But in the internet when I mention it people go "Huh. I never knew that game existed." - BigTree
Okay, this was one of the first games I've ever played. It could have had a decent sequel and be throned as Mario's newest strongest rival yet, but then pacman world 3 happened. - VeryPissedOffCinnabonV 5 Comments
I love this game! The music is beautiful, and the landscape and characters look breath-taking! Kirby may have lost this copy-abilities, but with how great this game's story was, I almost forgot about it. Some parts (such as the Meta Knight boss fight, that lovable little turd), were decently difficult. I'll come back to this game with fond memories.
Shut up, you other person.
There is only 1 problem with the game. Kirby can't die - LeetHaterz
My childhood right here.V 3 Comments
Not as good as the first one but still a great game. - nic1997ps3
Story is actually very sad and is a sequel that is worth playing (not as good as the first though)
great graphics and a great storyline - anthonybecerra831
To be honest it's overrated. - Extractinator04V 3 Comments
The game sold terrible when it first came out, but it slowly gaining popularity, being called one of the most underrated games of all time, with its uniqueness in almost every aspect of the game. - Jammer196
this is not just a great overlooked game, it should be considered one of the greatest games ever. The most entertaining level design I have ever played. - lethaldose
A fun, surreal game with extremely entertaining writing that will make you want to keep going through it. - kempokid
This isn't really underrated anymore because this can be easily be buyed now on xbla and psn and a lot of people like this and the sequel was croudfunded on kickstarter even though most kickstarter games sucked - ikerevievsV 5 Comments
This was one of the best open world games. Chaos, chaos everywhere
I don't think it's underrated, I think it's amazing, they should rename it "go blow stuff up"
I don't understand how this is underrated. It was getting love from everyone.
Its underrated because it's better than Grand Theft AutoV 2 Comments
This Game Is Complete Garbage
Bought it for my 3DS because I loved paper Mario and the thousand year Door, picked up this hot mess and returned it within an hour. If you thought paper Mario for the wii was hot garbage wait till you play this total stinker. Buy it. Throw it in the trash. Better gaming for humanity.
My opinion I only hate 2 mario games this one and hotel mario
I'm sorry but this is trash. I only played 5 minutes of it and then felt like chucking my 3ds at a wall.V 5 Comments
I've heard some people say it ruined the franchise. I'll look into it though
No - DensestPotato
This is truly the most underrated video game ever. It got very mediocre reviews and didn't sell well at all. I thought it was a great game, in fact it's honestly the best Sonic game I've played. This game had loads of different endings and stories, which gave it excellent replay value. It had a great thought provoking story, Shadow was so cool and badass, and the multiplayer was good as well.
The gameplay is still good to this day. I feel if more people knew about this game and the fanbase for this site was a bit more mature than this game would be 1st or 2nd on this list. - JamesNicholls
"IT HAS GUNS AND SWEARING! " Shadow is...an antihero. It's not a bad game. Shadow was badass in this. - DCfnaf
Somehow I feel the people that hate this game are either A) hating solely for the edginess, or B) making the game boring without even realizing it!
DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN - a summary of this game's script. But jokes aside this game is overhated. It puts the loose ends of SA2 and ties them up in a somewhat edgy manner. - VeryPissedOffCinnabonV 5 Comments
What Are You Talking About? This Game Wasn't Hard At All!
Everybody who thinks this game is hard never played Mario games.
How is this game overrated in any way? I'm pretty sure that it's much more popular than you think. - TwillyFSniper
I played this game before. Camera is irritating.V 7 Comments
This game is criminally underrated.
This game is not part of an overrated franchise, unlike several games on this list.
Amazing sci-fi racer for the PS2
Oh my god... I had this game and it was so fun to play with, the number of cars is great as hell and the modes are amazing - yamionthetrap
I'm pretty sure Conner The Waffle on YouTube said this is the most underrated game ever
A fun racing game that really lets you play to your fullest potential. COME ON Nintendo. MAKE A SSB STYLE GAME. EXCEPT WITH RACING.
I love that game. I got a gun that had like 1000000 ammo, no joke - ZeRater
Amazing story, amazing gameplay, amazing characters, stellar graphics, didn't get very popular
It's a real shame. This game had a wonderful story and really fun gameplay, among all of its other pros, but it NEVER had a chance. Just looking at the box, it looks like one of those generic DS games made by that company you've never heard of. Too bad it couldn't take off. - PeterG99
I just read the info about it, and this game looks pretty nice. I'll try to find it at my nearby used game store and give it a go. (PS. People probably overlooked it because it's one of those typical unpopular DS games that aren't by nintendo) - Mathyfox441
Ok, 2 things. 1- This game is tied with Super Mystery Dungeon for my 2nd favorite game of all time (1st is Spyro Dawn of the Dragon by the way, just wanted to point that out). 2- You say this game is underrated, yet it gets universal love. Even some who say it's overrated admit they like it. I feel that either Gates to Infinity (even though it's one of my biggest disappointments) or Super Mystery Dungeon should take its place since they're considered the worst by people.
Yes, this was a great game. In fact I think all the installments in this spin off series are excellent. - PageEmperor
I think I'm going to not look at the rest of this list with that on there. - TwillyFSniper
People may worship this game now, but it deserves as much acclaim as Ocarina of Time, aged better, and would have changed the outcome of the franchise for the better if it wasn't met with so much rage at the time for its graphics.
Also in no way underrated. Do you know what the word "underrated" means? - TwillyFSniper
It was underrated back then, now it's just rated. - Keb
How is this underratedV 3 Comments
One of the best Simpsons games.
Overrated by its fanbase, but deserves vastly more respect from the general public. Pretty much the same hype situation that happened with Rocko's Modern Life before it. - xandermartin98
Depends on who you are talking to, I'm guessing the general outcry is that it is pretty awful, because of the fanbase, who say it's amazing. I love this game, but have pushed away the fanbase. In that context, yes. It is underrated.
Is this an underrated or an overrated list?

Wonderful game! Greatest Mario Game of all time! Too bad that the Nintendo 64 and Super Mario 64 overshadowed it, so it only sold about 1. 4 million copies worldwide. If you find it though, like on eBay, a yard sale, or used game store, then get it!
I don't understand why people harp at this game so often. It's very engaging for an RPG, has the best graphics on a SNES games, a story so compelling you'd actually care about Mario, a lot of depth, plenty of sidequests, many characters with their own stories, and for once; THE WHOLE GAME ISN'T ABOUT SAVING PRINCESS PEACH! This is a game that people definitely need to take a bit more seriously.
Sweetest RPG on SNES. Not the best, as they're overshadowed by Chrono Trigger, FFVI and some more, but still it's the sweetest. How's that? Lovely graphics, great music, many jokes that will make you laugh out loud all the time, nice combat system, and more. - Igurusama
Definitely agree. This was #42 on the worst video games list. - BlueSheepYTV 1 Comment
I'd say the world, customization, soundtrack, and story are pretty damn good.
I adore this game! Probably the one game that needs a sequel more than any other game - HollyRolo
Nothing comes near!
Wish they would make something like this for next gen. Sadly that wont happen :( - JonermanV 1 Comment
So what if it's a crazy taxi ripoff? Its fun
This game was so fun. I don't think it is underrated I just think people sold they;re playstations when the new console game out
While not a perfect game, it's not as bad as most people claim it is (and I can guarantee, those people either never played it, only watched Jontron's review, or are 64 Elitist scum).
This game gets way too much hate.
This game was insanely good If you actually gave it a try. I think I might play it again sometime soon.
Good game, but I just have to say that a whole lot of older games like on ps2, Original XBox, and GameCube were all amazing!
Actually a fun game with some interesting gameplay. Part of me wishes I was joking.
Shrek is love, Shrek is life - Keb
Nice game no doubt
Best game ever by far.
Ratchet and Clank existed back then?! - SeeU
The single greatest storyline in the history of video games.
many RE fans loved RE 4 but hated RE 5. Why? RE 5 is true masterpiece with superb graphics, awesome story, characters and just gaming. Don't be so harsh to this game! - Magnolia
I know I'm going to get a lot of dislikes on this but I don't like Mario party
I LOVE MARIO PARTY 8! Me and my sibling would play it all the time! It's so fun! Why is it underrated!? - SeeU
Definitely better than 9 and 10 - DCfnaf
We hate it because we suck at it
It's hard but can be very fun - Keb
