My #1 underrated game of 2010: 3D Dot Game Heroes. It was smashed in reviews (averaging 7/10 on Metacritic), but I loved every minute of it. I can't expect someoen who cut their teeth on Call of Duty or Halo to understand, but for those who grew up on Zelda, Dragon Warrior, and Final Fantasy, 3D Dot Game Heroes is a love letter to those gamers.

Grew up on all those games and loved them, and I didn't like 3d Dot Heroes one bit. Just felt like a cheap rip off and I thought it was stupid how big your sword got.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

This survival-horror game deserved much more attention than anything else. Story was fairly well written, graphics was excellent, and holy sh*t was it scary as hell. I bet Satan himself would jizz his pants if he were to play Amnesia.

I would consider Amnesia one of the best games of 2010...period.

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor is an 87 on Metacritic so I wouldn't call it underrated. Just undersold.

Just Cause 2 defintely deserved more recognition.

Much better than GTA IV.
