The Five Most Criminally Underrated Video Games

All too often, the ever-changing taste of the gaming masses has led to plenty of truly amazing games being passed over. Games of flavor and unique charm have long had an unfortunate track record of being passed over; regardless of critical reception.

Mystical Ninja, good old couch coop.....I HATE this game it tarnished my childhood. That one level we couldn't beat after playing for what felt like hours.

MightyNoX3605d ago

Which level, if I may ask?

I still have the 'Impact Transformation' song on my Ipod.

I was referring to the old SNES game not the N64 version. I honestly didn't know until now they made a 64 version. I think it was the chapter after the 2nd boss. It's been years maybe 20 years now.

Interesting list. One game, I don't know if it's "underrated", that I would like to see come back in some modern form is 'Silent Service'. I think an action/sim submarine game on new hardware could be fun.

Gameplay video:

Iplayed the crap out of this game on the NES. And it was good strategic fun. Of course it's dated now, but I could imagine a new version. People play mech games and flight simulators, but sub sims are missing from current games. I'm sure there's probably some obscure PC game out there, but I want to see a multi-plat game made by a decent sized development team, with some real funding.

An open map MMO with people playing against each other like War Thunder would be cool. Subs and ships... now I'm getting excited just thinking about it. I need a life.

Isn't the new Silent Hunter kinda sorta like that?

Nice... I'll have to download it when I get home from work.

Mystical ninja and Quest 64 just liked to tease us that N64 did not have a proper RPG. Loved the system, Nintendo has never been the same since.

I thought Resistance 3 and inFamous 2 were way too underappreciated

The Capcom Series Most in Need of Revival

Capcom recently revealed interest in reviving their dormant IPs, so it's time to look at which Capcom series would make sense to return.

Breath of Fire, Knights of the Round, Saturday Night Slam Masters, a proper Bionic Commando game, Ghosts and Goblins. I am all down for Dino Crisis loved 1 and 2 one thing I like about Capcom is their massive library of games that need to be brought back to life. Next to Konami, Namco, Sega, old Squaresoft, Capcom was and is another one of my favorite developers. I would like it if Disney would just let Capcom make a Marvel game or two or Disney should let Capcom handle some Disney games. Capcom pulled of some great games with both Disney characters and Marvel characters.

All those plus Rival Schools, Powerstone, Darkstalkers, Dungeons and Dragons and Aliens vs Predator.

Rival Schools, Darkstalkers, Captain Commando, Dino Crisis and Breath of Fire.

I feel like Darkstalkers will get SJWd, but I still want it

RyanShutup479d ago

The Japanese seem to be immune to that bullshit... so far at least anyway.

shinoff2183478d ago

Breath of fire would be number one choice.

Glad to see it getting some love in the comments. I loved these games 1 through 4.
Not dragon quarter

Dark Stalkers, any fighting game - or side scroller - really, just not with SF's current art direction.
