Okay, there’s no denying that the likes of Call of Duty and Halo 3 are amazing video games. However, there are a ton of smaller indie games that are completely glossed over by the mainstream. Or there are games from yesteryear that are just as great – if not better – than some of the games we’re seeing coming out now.
It makes me sad that people are only about games if there’s sufficient enough hype around them to make them interesting. But honestly, there are plenty of games that are amazing that are super underrated.
In this article, I’ll try my best to correct this injustice. Here are the most amazing underrated games of all time:
- 1. Alice the Madness ReturnsWhen it comes to horror games, I usually find most of them impossible to play. I personally hate being scared shitless by a video game, I’d prefer watching a horror movie, to be honest. But when it comes to spooky games, Alice is on a whole different level.
Sure, the content of the game may give you nightmares or require some amount of brain bleach after gameplay, but it’s a super fun game when it comes down to it. Personally, I love this property and I think that it’s super underrated in the long run.
2. Dead Head Fred
You may have figured out that while I hate games with jump scares that I still love a little spooky stuff! This game is super original while being super dark. I mean come on, you’re a decapitated detective looking for their stolen head all while being mentored by a mad scientist.
There’s nothing I hate more than a game that has no originality. This game is the complete opposite and it’s heartbreaking to the extent to which it was overlooked. I highly recommend this game.
No, I’m not referencing the comedian! I’m talking about the barbarian. If you love brutish force and bloody combat then this game is definitely something you should give a try. The combat requires skill and the game feels just as pulpy as the original franchize… just with a little more realistic blood and gore.
I love this game for the same reason I love slasher films and cult movies. I recommend this game to anyone who likes quest games and convoluted hero’s journies.
