Underrated games

Postby MERASMUS! » Tue Dec 17, 2013 6:16 pm

Does anyone else feel that they enjoy a certain game a lot but is rather more deserving of attention?

I think the marathon trilogy deserve's more credit for it's innovations in first person shooters.

The Legend of Dragoon. It's an old turn-based JRPG for the PSX. God, that game was fun, with a rarely used, well-thought-out combat system. The Addition system was used in place of the traditional "run up and smack 'em, run back" attacks that were in most RPGs at the time, requiring you to press the attack button at the right time to continue the attack until it's done. Some of the Additions later in the game are fun to watch, and satisfying when you pulled them off.

There are quite a few people hoping the game sees a remake or even a sequel. I don't see it happening, but if it did I'd probably buy it.

Lets see:

Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time.

Ar Tonelico 1 and 2.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven.

God Hand.

Shodai Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun.

Shadow Hearts.

Chrono Cross.

That's all I can think of right now.

More unheard of than under-rated. Among people who know of the series the games are very well received and I mean why the hell not when you get music like this on top of interesting world and story.

   Croix/Croah is best male MC, this is not debatable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Xk0bNMidCI   

Even the third game despite being far below the other two has good songs.

This was one of my favorite songs from Ar Tonelico 2:

I never got to play the third one. Although I've heard it mixed things about it review wise, I still really want to play it.

If we're going for non-hymnos then this is top tier.
