10 Underrated Video Games That You’ll Love – These are games that often get a bad rap but we think you’ll love them once you play them!


Gamers are constantly bombarded with the latest and greatest releases, but there are so many amazing games out there that we overlook because of their bad reputation. Here are a few titles that you may have overlooked or heard bad things about, but are worth checking out!

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. It was released on December 4th, 2012 in the United States and Canada, on October 4th in Europe and Australia; and October 5th in Japan. It was also released that day for next-generation consoles as a launch title for PlayStation 4 (developed by Sony’s studio Sucker Punch Productions) as well as Xbox One (developed by Microsoft’s studio Turn 10 Studios).

Dragon Age: Origins


Dragon Age: Origins (DA:O) is an RPG game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. It is a standalone game that is set in the fictional world of Thedas. DA:O was released on October 3, 2009 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and OS X; it was also released on September 6th 2010 for iOS devices and Android devices on March 27th 2012, while the Nintendo Switch version was released on April 11th 2019.

The gameplay of DA:O mainly revolves around the protagonist completing quests or side quests to solve problems within their party members’ lives or throughout Ferelden’s civil war as they attempt to take back their homeland from Tevinter forces while also dealing with demons that plague Thedas.


This is a game that you’ll enjoy. It has a good story, lots of replayability, and lots to do. The music and graphics are great, too! It also has some good voice acting.

Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 is a first person shooter game that takes place in Africa. You play as a mercenary sent to kill the government, who has been threatening the rebels.

  • The gameplay is unlike most other games in this genre because you have to deal with the harsh conditions of the desert. You have to make sure that you don’t run out of food or water because if you do, it can be very difficult to survive in this environment.
  • As a result of having so much responsibility in an open world setting, it’s easy for players to lose track of where they are going or what they are doing while trying not to die from dehydration or starvation!

Super Mario Sunshine

One of the most underrated games in the Mario series, Super Mario Sunshine is a classic that you should definitely play! The story is about Mario and Peach going on a vacation to Isle Delfino. However, when they get there, they find that Bowser has taken over the island with his army of goop monsters (known as “Shine Sprites”). Now it’s up to our favorite plumber hero to clean up the island and defeat Bowser once again.

The gameplay is similar to other games in this series: run around large worlds collecting power-ups and coins while jumping on enemies’ heads. There’s also an interesting water pack that lets you spray water at your foes using various tools such as squirt guns and water skis.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is a Nintendo DS game that was released in 2009. It is the sixth game in the Legend of Zelda series. It is set in the land of New Hyrule, which has been taken over by an evil entity known as Malladus, who seeks to control all worlds. To prevent this from happening, Princess Zelda and Link travel to restore power to four Spirits: Anjean (a Lokomo), Alfonzo (a royal engineer), Byrne (a knight) and Chancellor Cole (the head adviser). As you progress through each dungeon, you will come across tracks that allow you to move quickly around New Hyrule by train.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is a great game. It’s got a solid story, an engaging battle system, great music and graphics, and some really fun characters to play with. But most people never played it because they thought the franchise was just for kids!

But even if you’ve never been interested in RPGs before (or are still not), give this one a try—it might change your mind about them. If nothing else, the music alone is worth playing through all of the game just to hear it again!

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures for the Nintendo DS is a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, which was released on the GameCube in 2002. It is a multiplayer Zelda game where you can team up with up to three other friends to play as one of four Links on different screens that make up the whole game together.

The plot follows Link and Princess Zelda’s adventure to find Hyrule Castle, which has been stolen from its rightful place by Vaati, the wind mage. Your goal is to restore it while battling enemies along the way with your comrades in arms against many foes such as Bokoblins and Stalfos skeletons who are out there destroying anything in their path!

Pokemon Heart Gold Version

If you’re looking for a classic Pokemon game, then this is the one for you! This game is a remake of Pokemon Gold and Silver. It’s got all the charm and fun that those games have along with new features like improved graphics and better sound quality.

It’s a great game to play with friends who are really into Pokemon too because it gives them something new to explore together while still keeping some classic elements from earlier versions of the series. As an added bonus, this version has been updated so that all players will be able to experience an entire region without having to trade back and forth between two different games like older versions did (though there are still some incense items which make wild pokemon appear nearby).

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

The Final Fantasy series is one of the most beloved video game franchises of all time. If you’ve ever played a Final Fantasy game, then you probably know that it’s known for its unique characters and stories, as well as its turn-based combat system.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is a spinoff of the main series and set in Ivalice (the same world as Final Fantasy XII). As such, there are some similarities between this game and that one—for instance, both games feature characters from familiar Final Fantasy games like Cait Sith from VII or Vayne Novus from XII. The biggest difference between these two titles though is that FFTA is a tactical RPG instead of an action RPG like FFXII was; this means that instead of controlling your character directly during battle sequences like an action title would allow you to do, players will control each individual unit (a “squadron”) within their army instead.
