THIS is the #1 reason to buy a DS, I remember how addicted I was to that game... A sequel would be nice, somewhere I read a rumour that the Switch might get a TWEWY title, but it definitely isn't fact, so we will have to wait an official statement.Dart wrote:I find The World Ends With You to be rather underrated...
I also liked the FF XIII trilogy, though it was already mentioned.
As for Metroid, Other M is definitely underrated, however more people consider it to be garbage than it being a hidden gem... Actually I liked it. The Prime series gonna get a huge player base imo, since the hype is already pretty big around Prime 4. As for the side-scrollers, I pretty much loved them, but it's the type of game, that you either enjoy playing, or don't.
Also the old Fire Emblem games are not well known (Blazing Sword, Sacred Stone...), but they are far from being underrated.
Ys Chronicles is underrated though, at least in the West, I think with the PC release of Lacrimosa of Dana it might get a boost in player base. I liked I and II the most, for their fun combat-system.
Tenchu series are also kind of forgotten (I don't blame people for it, we haven't seen a worthy sequel in a long-long time), but it wasn't underrated in it's time.
Oh, and FF Type-0, it has pretty good mechanics, so the people who don't like JRPGs might also like this one... Not sure if underrated, but definitely not the one with the biggest hype.
That's all what comes to my mind right now, might post about some other games later.
(Edit: The formatting of this post is pretty shit, I just wanted to make the titles stand out, so people who just rush trough the post will notice which ones are mentioned...)
