The Top 10 Games Metacritic says are rubbish - but are actually good.

Metacritic's 'Yellow Zone' hides some of gaming's greatest hidden gems. You just have to look hard enough - and ignore the scores. (Culture)

Wholeheartedly agree with Nier, I really loved this game, brilliant soundtrack as well.

Picked Nier up for £4 new and it's brilliant, flawed in some places yea but it has heart and soul driven by a great story and addictive game play. The best £4/$6 i've spent all gen.
Hicken  +   928d ago
I might argue for the best soundtrack this gen. Brilliant story, to boot. DEFINITELY underrated.

... kinda makes me wanna play it now.

The only other game I've played on the list is Arcana Heart, and I've only played the first one. Love the game, but I sucked at fighting games at the time, so it completely destroyed me. After extensive experience with BlazBlue, I think I could do much better, but I don't have it on hand anymore.

... AH3 is downloadable, isn't it? Might have to buy that.

Both Nier and Lost Odyssey are the best RPG's of the century, not simply this 'Gen' imo.

This list is awesome. Nier, Arcana Heart, Project Sypheed - all fantastic games that so many people will miss out on.

Havent played 3 but 2 was somewhat fun, didnt exactly understand its mechanics but looked good nevertheless.

I plan on buying NIER real soon and checking that out. Tenchu Z was a 70% at best. Ok but not that great.
Patashnik  +   928d ago
Wartech: Zenko no Ronde and Arcana Heart are my favourites on this one. I also really enjoyed Project Sypheed - even the story, which I didn't think was that bad!

Resident Evil 6 is not good

Come on

I haven't played the game, so I can't really make an input as to the final game. But if it is anything like the demo then I would have to say that the Metacritic rating is too high.

Since when did getting average scores in the late 60's make a game rubbish?
Patashnik  +   928d ago
I think the issue is, if you're honest, and objective - the game isn't as bad as people say.
wishingW3L  +   928d ago
what you just said makes absolutely no sense.
DaveyB  +   928d ago
Makes sense to me. He says Resi isn't a 'bad game'. I think that's a perfectly reasonable assessment...
DaveyB  +   928d ago
I know people say 50-60% is an 'average' - but the fact is, when you get scores like that people automatically think that the game is flawed or not worth their time. I don't think this is the case - so I think the games on that list are pretty spot on...

I didn't like Resi6 myself so much, but I recognise that it's not really a 'bad' game.
Hydralysk  +   928d ago
I personally gotta disagree with Sylpheed. It wasn't bad, but it was a much more arcadey game than the flight sims of old like Tie Fighter/Wing Commander/FreeSpace etc...

It was a much more Japanese version of the space sim genre, and it lost a lost of the 'sim' parts. Not necessarily bad, but more of a space shooter than space sim. Unfortunately most attempts at space sims fall into this category (looking at you SOL:Exodus and Strike Suit Zero!).

Resident evil 6 is definitely over rated IMO.

Especially compared to one of my favorite games of all time Resident Evil 4.
Vladplaya  +   928d ago
Don't know a about lot of those game, and the ones I do know about, I agree with metacritic...
nirwanda  +   928d ago
Loved vandel hearts on the ps1 didn't even realise there were more.
WiredRevolution  +   928d ago
Awesome list! I'm glad to see there are some people out there with a good taste in games still!

TENCHU Z!!!
