TNB: It is thanks to all the developers and publishers who made these games a reality, though you didn't get what you deserve, your hard-work and zeal to do things outside the box will never be forgotten.
Demon Souls underrated ? I don't think so. 1.7 copies sold (VG Chartz) and often considered as one of the greatest RPGs of this gen. I think the game has the recognition it deserves and has nothing to do on that kind of list, in my opinion.
vgtards is for tards. Please don`t refer to them ever again. It`s run by hypocrites who are fanboys. Which company doesn`t matter. On topic: Demon`s Soul`s does not have extremely high scores in reviews, thus underrated.
1. Metro Last light 2. Folklore 3. Vanquish 4. Infamous 2 6. Warhawk
I will agree that alan Wake is a bit underrated. For anyone looking to play this game, check out Steam's weekend deal. They've got Alan Wake and Alan Wake: American Nightmare together for a total of $4.00 USD (90% off).
@Kos - I disagreed until I read the last sentence. Technically, you're correct; "underrated" games are games that were given lower scores than they deserved.
@BattleAxe Alan Wake underrated? 80+ at metacritic (here: http://www.metacritic.com/g... ) is overrated if you ask me. I don't have (although I did have one sometime ago, not at Alan Wake's time) a X360 then I was glad when they released it for PC, since I'm firstly an Adventure(/story-driven/tellin g) gamer. It lasted the 1-2 hours I played the game. Maybe I was mistaken when I trusted this was a more story-centered game - with that I mean the most enjoyable part is the story, not how to unveil it - but as soon as I started it I felt its action nature. And immature story, at least near other games where it (tried to?) fits. Put it near (for example sake) a Quantic Dream game and it's just a boring and repetitive action game with somewhat elaborated-but-generic story that doesn't make me want to continue to play.
Demon's Souls got decent enough reviews (sitting at 89% on metacritic). It isn't criminally underrated by the critics and certainly isn't by the gamers. I don't think it is worthy enough to put on a list like this. All in all I would say DeS did very well. Oh, it also won Gamespots GOTY award.
im gonna make a top 50 of top 5s
89 meta average for a new ip, especially one that took chances like demons souls, isn't under-rated. I followed it diligently. It only dropped to 89 with its last review. And it sold great for an exclusive.
more like underappreciated or undiscovered
alan wake has done so well also and achieved critical praise how is it underrated
from what i remember, its sales numbers weren't that great. that's probably why it's underrated.
the guy in the picture looks like kaz hirai.
Waiting for someone to put the Xbox One caption above the masked man
"This Summer, Chow Yun Fat as Kaz Hirai in the new blockbuster hit, "It Only Does Everything" coming soon to theaters.
You forgot the last quotation mark :)
I'd watch it. On topic, Demon's Souls is far from Underrated. The game caused quite a stir, got loads of attention, spawned a sequel, and even won GotY! How is that underrated? My underrated games this gen... Alpha Protocol Folklore Warhawk MAG Tenchu Z
Demons Souls definitely shouldnt be on the list, fantastic game, I kinda prefer it to Dark Souls, although I prefer Dark Souls for other reasons, both SUPERB games Singularity was pretty good and underrated, and Warhammer 40k: SM, its really fun online
I agree with you. Demon's Souls should not be on that list. Initially it was an underground title, but after alot of word of mouth, it's become very popular. On that note, I agree with you in the fact that Demon's Souls is vastly superior to Dark Souls. But cool, another person who enjoyed Singularity! I thought the game was incredible, unique and very well done. Multiplayer was even pretty fun, though it suffered heavily from lag. Servers were complete ****
Dark Sector was very underrated
A cool game that got forgotten easily. The fact that a majority of Xbox fans have preferential treatment for FPS might also be a deciding factor.
IS "preferential treatment for FPS" Why games like Gears of War and Assasins Creed are the two top selling franchises coming out this generation?
i agree with dark sector
el shaddai has to be one of the most underrated games nobody talks about same goes for asuras wrath.
El Shaddai was overlooked. Shame.
Nier, Shadows of the Damned, Fragile Dreams, RE6 and Resonance of Fate
In respect to RE6, I think gamers have lost faith on the franchise since every attempt to "transform" the games take it further away from the original vision of Resident Evil.
RE6 deserved those scores from what ive seen. It wasn't near as good as 5, which of course wasn't near as good as 4.
Just play up to 4 and walk away.
Nier was an amazing game.
Resident Evil 6, underrated? Haha. and you wonder why no-one takes you seriously.
^ I agree w/j blaze. Nier, Folklore, Resonance of Fate, & Warhawk
I agree with MOST of his list, anyway. RE6 wasn't underrated, nor was Shadows of the Damned. But Nier, Fragile Dreams, and Resonance of Fate all definitely were.
