Top 10 Underrated Video Games of 2011

2011 was a banner year for video games. It saw the release of Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, and a dozen other indistinguishable shooters, all of them selling millions of copies.

And then there were these games. Their sales ranged from “okay” to “embarrassing,” but each took creative risks that paid off. For that, they deserve recognition. (Catherine, Child of Eden, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, Outland, PC, PS3, Radiant Historia, Shadows of the Damned, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, Wii, Xbox 360)

If you stay on the website long enough, it will turn into a Crackle page and play the first episode of Jackie Chan Adventures. I have NO idea why, but that's what it did to me.

I love the internet.

OT: I'm not sure any of these were underrated. They just didn't sell as well as they should have. I, for one, think Stacking was the best downloadable game last year. It was absolutely brilliant! Child of Eden was good, but it wasn't great. Without getting into which version was better (Kinect or Move), I'd say it was an enjoyable experience for anyone who had it. Just didn't last very long.

shadow of the damned was a horrible and repetitive game. story wise it was so bad, it tried to be funny but was just annoying instead, gameplay as UGGGGHHHH, those rooms with the darkness and having to shoot the goat head were so repetitive yet so plentiful i couldnt stand it anymore and got rid of the game.

to think he made resident evil -_-

and yes i dislike COD so plz no comments on that lol
