Top 5 Underrated Games of 2011

Invigilator - We all have games we love and hate, though some hate more than others. There are a few games out there that don’t get the coverage they deserve, so I thought I would share some of the games I’ve played and enjoyed, yet others have hated and ignored. Though there are some amazing titles out there, there are also a lot of under rated games which never get any discussion or recognition for how good they are. (Bulletstorm, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, Hunted: The Demon's Forge, PC, PS3, Shadows of the Damned, Wii, Xbox 360)

shadow of the damned is a crappy game, crap story, crap gameplay, repetitive as hell with those dark area's that u have to shoot the goats and stuff, the humor was lame. i couldn't finish it.
Merchant  +   1012d ago
Everyone have their own taste but i think shadow of the demned is innovative game and it deserve better sales , sad thing causal gamer only like games like call of duty or Battlefield 3 which is same game like previous but still sell like hot cakes.
kevnb  +   1012d ago
it was a misfire though, but atleast the werent afraid try something different.
MariaHelFutura  +   1011d ago
Don't drag BF3 into this, BF3 is a great game.

"but i think shadow of the demned is innovative game"?

Innovative? Do tell.
Buuhan1  +   1011d ago
You're wrong, so wrong.

Shadows of the DAMNED was my favorite game for 2011. It was time we got a truly FUN and FRESH game. I consider it right there next to Portal 2 as best of 2011.

I want to try Shadows of the Damned, but I've so many games to finish in my list. From those, I played El Shaddai demo only and couldn't get interested in the game.
Merchant  +   1012d ago
I will recomamded you to try Shadow of the Damned,its innovative and great game :)
Baddo_Ekkusuchi  +   1012d ago
im actually replaying it for the third time, goin for the platinum. this game is so entertaining, unless your one of them conservative types. i bet lollipop chainsaw will be fun as well
rhap  +   1012d ago
That's what I was thinking. I really liked the concept of Shadows of the Damned, I'll eventually play it, and I can say the same about Lollipop Chainsaw, seems to be a fun game. Won't buy at release, but maybe when the price drops a bit.
Merchant  +   1012d ago
Glad someone like me enjoy the game its sad games like this sales like shit and this thing also de-motivate the developer to make innovative games like that . I dont blame them because if ganes like Just Dannce sold 7 million copies so this is not their fault.

What a crappy article, so poorly written. Who approves crap like this?
kevnb  +   1012d ago
4 of those games sucked ass, the other Ive never heard of.
SolidGear3  +   1012d ago
I'm afraid to ask what you do like then .. GTA? ::pukes::
Xandet  +   1012d ago
Decent list, despite the fact that it looks to have been written by a 7 year-old.
j-blaze  +   1012d ago
totally agree with this list! i played and loved every game listed except for Hunted....i would add White Knight Chronicles 2 and Yakuza 4 great games but very underrated
SolidGear3  +   1012d ago
Day 1 purchases consist of Bulletstorm, Catherine, Shadows of the Damned, Red Faction: Armageddon, Rage, Duke Nukem Forever, Portal 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, F.E.A.R. 3, Homefront, Resistance 3 and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine amongst many others this past year...

Games I have not or will not purchase are Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Batman: Arkham City and InFamous 2.
MariaHelFutura  +   1011d ago
Wow, I feel sorry for you. Asides from COD, you're missing some gems there. Plus, Duke Nukem??? Are you just trying to be edgy?

Oh look a hipster gamer, only likes games that aren't popular, none of that mainstream stuff for him oh no.

He only buys games that sell under a million copies or were panned for being a mediocre copycat like Homefront.

Actually Fallout 3 is my favorite game this gem and Bethesda is one of my top favorite developers. That's why I wrote 'have not bought'. Skyrim and MW3 are both in that category. I plan on getting those 2. I also got Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2, MGS HD Collection, L.A. Noire, Killzone 3, Dragon Age II on Day 1 as well in 2011.
dinkeldinkse  +   1011d ago
I can respect that.
AusRogo  +   1011d ago
All those games but mw3 are awesome man! Go get em!
Venjense  +   1012d ago
Bulletstorm was way overrated IMO
SilentNegotiator  +   1011d ago
It got a free pass for being something "different" (though I would argue, "not the good kind of different") and a game published by EPIC.

The game was low on content and not all that interesting.

Hunted: Demon's Forge was just crap, but the rest I would agree with as being underrated to an extent.
Lord_Sloth  +   1011d ago
I'm offended that you put Hunted: The Demon's Forge made this list. Just hope my brother doesn't see that. He'll flip out!
Buuhan1  +   1011d ago
Play Shadows of the DAMNED.

That is all.
Lord_Sloth  +   1011d ago
No.
Zephol  +   1011d ago
Uncharted 3, And Modern Warfare 3 and RAGE
