Underrated games of 2011

Even though 2012 is here and gamers are moving on, there are still plenty of games from 2011 which might have gone unnoticed for whatever reason. The best part is a lot of these underrated games are less then $20 currently. The list includes Bulletstorm, Shadows of the Damned, Red Faction Armageddon, Driver San Francisco, El Shaddai, and many more. (Bulletstorm, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Driver: San Francisco, Outland, PC, PS3, Red Faction: Armageddon, Shadows of the Damned, Xbox 360)

Meh, the only 2 that are worth playing imo are Resistance 3 and Crysis 2. The others are very passable, especially considering all the really good ones that came out in 2011.

Broaden thy horizons good sir

I've literally played all those games and those are the only 2. Maybe you need to accept that people have differing opinions. I'll play anything, just don't care for those others.

Catherine is the most underrated game of 2011 IMO. That game was so fun and the story was great

It sold pretty well considering it's a puzzle game. But still underrated, for sure. (Proud collector's edition owner)

I might have given Catherine a try...
... if it would have had an option for the original voices.

It doesn't, so I never bothered with it.

@ Yi

Actually the voice acting in English is surprisingly solid. It never really feels forced or stupid or anything. They all do a really good job so I think you should reconsider since it's a very good game.

You must not have much experience with ATLUS games. Though I'd have enjoyed the Japanese cast in their games, the English ones have been consistently top-notch.

Catherine is one of the best games ever created, hard as hell, challenging, great story and brings true adult themes to games.

Hell yeah. Catherine is my GOTY for 2011 as well. Though I admit I used the Very Easy code which mode all the puzzle sections passable in under 30 seconds. Very Easy mode might has well been a God mode equivalent.

El Shaddai is a great game that more people need to try......

All the underrated games of 2011 were the best. Catherine, Bulletstorm, Shadows of the Damned and Deus Ex: Human Revolution amongst others.

These games aren't underrated.

A true underrated game of 2011 would have to be DCUO. Its really not the turd people made it out to be.

El Shaddai was such an amazing sensory experience...
I'm a better person for having played it.

I forgot about Catherine has it hit $25 yet?
