There are some games that while you might like it or even love it most of the public will not share that same sentiment, but is not about polarazing or niche either you could call them "underrated". So I´ll start with Brütal Legend that still today is one of the most imaginative games I´ve played ever and I felt some that people misinterpreted , sure it was marketed as some kind of hack n' slash action game (wich kinda was) but because there was no metion of the part where the game turns into a light RTS game people felt somewhat cheated and didn´t care for the unexpected gameplay change.
I thought all parts of Brutal Legend were great and everything fit into the crazy atmosphere of the world, the sountrack was amazing even for someone who dosn´t necesarelly appreciate the history of everything arround it was a nice tribute to the Heavy metal/Rock genre, all the characters were great specially Jack Black as Eddie he really comitted to his role , and I just can´t stop prasing the atmosphere and the design of everything in that world from the creatures that roam the land to the landmarks is really different from everything that´s out there even 2 years later. I guess the argument about it´s gameplay it´s what draws some criticism but to me the hybrid nature of the gameplay it´s what makes it appealing at least to me in the first place. I could sit here and talk about how much I like that game but I really want to know what are some of your underappreciated games that you feel need more love.
PD : oh and excuse the possible grammatical errors.
