Some of the best underrated games you've probably never even heard of. Part 1.
didnt read the article but that is Seaman! and i have this game! great great great!
Haha, yes it is. I'm surprised anyone knew.
I love those games. never played the robot one and only own MANHUNT.
I had this game too. It was fun until you actually realized that the communication was totally random and had no real motivation behing it. Kind of like the virtua pet games of today except less feedback. My Seamonkey tank had about as much fun in it. Except I didn't have to clean out the tank when Seaman died... the Seamonkeys must have been having an internal battle and knocked each other off every day.
You didn't have squat liar.
That picture alone makes me not want to play it.
Bezerker - Guts Rage or whatever it was called on the Dreamcast was pretty good and what, no Chu Chu Rocket??? Illbleed was fun as well.
There's only room for 8 games, so not everything can fit...If I got enough suggestions, I may extend the list. Part 2 is still largely unwritten too. But I'd need some suggestions and comments on you guys' picks and why they should get some attention (i.e. why you like them)
I was just ranting. There's so many killer games that have been overlooked because the graphics weren't good or whatever the case may be. Take COLD FEAR for instance on the PS2/Xbox. Completely unknown to most gamers but it was fun and had a pretty good story with bonus unlocks as well.
I'll always have a soft spot for Brutal Legend. Would have gone from great to fantastic if it wasn't for the weird RTS spin towards the end. Really wanted a sequel though, and was disappointed to hear that they're not planning one.
Same. I always said to my friends, "If it only wasn't an RTS and just stayed as a Heavy Metal Zelda-esque game, it could have been considered amazing." In the mean time, enjoy a small tribue from Metalocalypse.
... How did I miss that episode?!
I'm sure alot of people played Manhunt, so it shouldn't be in the list.
It is the most popular game on the list, I will agree with you there.
Seaman actually would probable work really well with Kinect.
No More Heroes needs to be on this list. Hell, every Suda51 game needs to be on this list. It is sad that his games are never big sellers because they are some of the most ingenious I've played.
i like the sound of semen wish i had played it
seaman lol i remember when my brother bought this game.. came with a mic lol it was just fun to play very emotional and touching software..lol
I would have to put Sega Saturn game Mr. Bones on the list. It had a great story and 22 levels that had you basically doing a different gameplay style each time. The Guitar riff alone is worth the buy. Having to create a solo that is great enough to get the crowd of dead skeletons to flip out their lighters and salute you is just great! And even a level where you have to tell a funny joke to get by. And a soundtrack that was composed and performed by guitarist Ronnie Montrose, with Jim Hedges! Cult Classic game that was underated.
wow that sounds bloody amazing! lists like this make me wish i was more of a collector and had kept older consoles... as for under-rated games there are three but i'm not sure they were underated just ancient like me and those are: Damocles for the amiga....and midwinter 1 and 2 also for the amiga .. these three games are all massive open world sandbox action adventure games with 3d graphics too, which was pretty cool considering how long ago it was.
okay am i think only slow one? my list finishes at 5 and i can't see the first 4.. and cant find a link.. anyone? also from comments I agree with Buuhan1, NO MORE HEROS was so fun and such a under rated game.. it was so meant for the WII.. but wish it came to XBOX with standard controls just so i can replay it for achievements..
I've actually just written up the second one and will have it linked to this article in less than an hour...I had no idea this would be even half as popular, so I actually had not written the second half at this time.
