Sometimes the best games aren't in the public eye. A lot of the times you never know what you're missing. This week, 411's Derek Robbins breaks down what he feels are the 10 most under-appreciated games ever.
Ico and Earthbound really do deserve recognition those 2 games are phenomenally well done and fun.
I agree with many of those. Beyond Good & Evil, Psychonauts, Ico... all games I own, all amazing titles. I wish gamers would notice these gems and give them the sales and respect they deserve. Instead, its Madden Madden MADDEN!!!
Well i only just found out about Shadow and ico...so i drove an hour and a half to purchase shadow and bought ico from england ahha...(im in AU)
Vagrant Story should be in this list.
vagrant story sold quite well. at least some people had some good taste. now if you ask about killer7,could not understand a thing about it. 2 hardcore capcom games.
I so gotta pick up some of these titles. Infact i think im going to pick up god hand.
Hah I have all of those except Earthbound.
When you bought it it actually came with the strategy guide, and it came in really handy. The layout and flow of the game made it work and everything just clicked. I've never been into those cute little character games, but Ness is a badass and this is in my top 5 games of all time. In my opinion it's quite possibly the best SNES game aside from A Link to the Past, but many will argue that.
Just download it off the internet. EMULATORS FTW!
kill.switch should also definitely be on the list
kill switch? really? that game sucked. the control lay out was a disaster, the level design was a joke, enemy AI must have been programmed to be on par w/ Downs Syndrome, and the plot was horrible. easily one the worst 3rd person shooters on the ps2.
I tell everyone this, but Psychonauts and Godhand are two of the few most influential games, in my opinion. Both of these games made me get back onto track with 3D modeling and animation. I wish they weren't overlooked =(
solid, lots of fun, well worth the time
How many "under appreciated" or "best games nobody played" or "top 10 games you never heard of", ect ect do we need? Do they change anything? Do people rush out and buy the games listed? Ico, Beyond Good and Evil, and Psychonauts appear on these lists frequently but how many people look at these lists and then went out to buy these games?
I did....i bought ico and shadow of the colossus 2 weeks ago... :)... I might look into beyond good and evil aswell now sounds good. There are so many classics that just own nething on my ps3 at the moment. im happy to go back and play the things i missed.
dont the beyond good and evil girl look like the girl from half-life 2?
Yeah, I thought that too.
in the last weeks we have seen lot's of this kind of articles... top 10 games no one play, top 9182390283 games no one cares. and in all of them we find games that we consider the best. on this one i found rocket knight adventures. one of the best platformers ever made, i still own the original mega drive (genesis for you NA ppl) cartdrige.
has prevented this site from opening 11 pop-up windows. Fail.
That's what I said.
Beyond Good and Evil and Ico for me is every gamers dream.. They are so beautifull.... And everyone that has finsihed these two games to the end will know the felling that you are left with is just wow and WOWW.
I love God Hand, it's the only game that I've played, finished, sold, regretted selling and re-bought.
One day, people will begin to recognize The Legend of Dragoon as being an underappreciated masterpiece. That day has not come with this article. Expectations killed it just like the original Killzone. Stupid Sony and their "killer" hype methods.
legend of the dragoon is a great game. a masterpiece for me. and i dont like J rpgs.
