What games of any generation do you think flew under the radar?
Great vid. I need to play 3D Dot Game Heroes myself if I have the chance.
They actually have a lot of overlooked, underrated, and just plain ignored games in their videos actually. There are a fair number of shmups and racing games but that's just due to their preferences. It's a great series.
"3D Dot Game Heroes is better then most Zelda games" Wow it takes some balls to say that ...i agree 100%
I know! I saw his review shortly after posting this comment and I was so happy ! Also my comment was meant to read "In australia no one has heard..."
I've played a shitload of Pocket Fighter back in the day, great game! Another overlooked gem is Alundra for PSone, very classic 2D-rpg with insane dungeons.
i really enjoyed this video. this subject has been done to DEATH and back, but you guys found a way to make it seem fresh. and the fact it was great AND longer than the typical video was awesome, i wanted it to keep going. really look forward to more.
I though Pac-Man World 2 on the Gamecube was a decent to great game. It took the basic Pac-Man elements and integrated them into a 3D platformer (it played very similar to the PS1 Crash Bandicoot games in my opinion), and it worked out perfectly. It even satisfied the classic Pac-Man fans by creating new mazes based off the game's levels, and unlockable ports of notable Pac-Man arcade games (I never unlocked Ms. Pac-Man though). It's a bit on the short side, but I'd recommend it to any Pac-Man or platformer fan.
I haven't played it, but I just saw Professional Jared make a review for the game, and from what I can gather, it looks and doesn't look like a conventional shoot 'em up game.
Skullmonkeys looked awesome. I have Predator 2 for my Mega Drive but never played it before. I really like the Illusion games on Mega Drive but I guess its not that overlooked since it got a "kinda" sequel on 3DS ... A lame constant backtrack the same levels sequel ... urgghhh
Pocky and Rocky on Super Nintendo in Autralia. I love that game yet no one even knows it existed. Has anyone else played/heard of the game? I would really love to know what other people thought of it
Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, Arcana Heart 3, and the original Shantae come to mind.
Great video. It's nice to see footage of some stuff I've never seen.
Most overlooked game I know is Dragonforce on the Saturn. I know three people that played my copy, and then went out and bought a Saturn on the strength of that game alone. And this was back when it was current gen and full price.
I played Klonoa Empire of Dreams for the Gameboy if it's any consolidation
In terms of great underlooked games, their is no better JRPG than Grandia II
I always wanted to play Skullmonkeys but I could never find a copy where I lived...
