Overrated/Underestimated RPG Games/franchises

13 posts in this topic

Hello fellow Soldiers,

I just wanted to ask you if there is a game or a fracnhise which you think didn't earnthe attention that it should or a hidden gem lost in the maelstorm of games. Or an franchise Hyped up to the heavens but turned out to be totally crap?

For me E.V.O. (for the SNES) was such a gem though it's more an adventure than an RPG. Also  Valkyrie profile Lenneth (PSP)
Tales of the World radiant Mythologie (PSP)  are awesome games that no one really cared about. For the PS1 there  were many games that were beautiful like Vagrant Story, Jade Cocoon (I think first game synchornized on ps1???), Legend of Legaia and Tomby (Adventure!)

Well overrated RPG are hard to find but if we speak generally well yeah CoD series.

Xenogears is underrated I think. In germany nobody knows about the game. (Turkish: Burda Türkler bulcami hic sanmasdim^^)

The World ends with you on the ds, again i don´t know anyone who played that game next to me.

AH I knew forgot about something, I may add that the RPG's on the Wii are also great games  but no one gave attention like Sky Arcadia etc.

And of Course The .//hack: G.U. series for the PS2 were Great definitly  a must have if you ask me :)

Even though it was a succesful new IP for Capcom, I feel Dragon's Dogma was pretty underrated. The story may have not been the best, but the game was pretty solid. I also feel Golden Sun is pretty much underrated.

I always thought the Lufia games (SNES) were underated. Maybe they got more attention than I think but I never heard much about them.

I think kotor 2 is pretty underrated, I always thought Obsidian did a great job with going more in depth with the force and how far your descions carry.

And i also think dark souls is overrated for what it is. can't stand that game. (ill stop here cause i've already ranted about it else were.)

I would say Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. Not because they don't get played (though before Dark Souls I think Demon's Souls was definitely way underrated), but because people really overlook the lore, which there is a ton of really, just requires a lot of piecing together and at times speculation.

 

As for overrated, I might get hate for this but I have to say I found Skyrim highly overrated for all the hype that was given to it. Really I didn't enjoy Skyrim at all, besides the modding community on PC I felt it was really overrated.

xenosaga, apparently the series took a dive after the second game, thus making the planned hexology into a trilogy, sucks =( I really love the third game

Skyrim is really overrated. I couldn´t get into it. I don´t know why. Worth mentioning is also the Gothic trilogy especially the first two games. XD

I love them so much. But I agree to Dragons Dogma. It´s so epic. The music and all the boss battles. I just think that the game has not many enemy types.

You had overall 3-4 boss archetypes and they all had the same pattern which is sad because the game is so good. I would also recommend Risen and Tales of Xillia which is the only Tales game i ever finished and I enjoyed it much. I am already exited about Tales of Xillia 2 which also comes next year for PS3

Gothic 1 and 2 are really underrated, probably because its hard to get into and will take some hours to learn the mechanics and after that you will love it forever.

I see some saying that skyrim was overrated but for me it wasnt because i have played morrowind and oblivion and love those games so i pretty much knew what would come in skyrim and knew there really wasnt to be something really epic and unique. It was just advertised a lot more than usual and it payed off for bethesda.

This, I really loved the Dragon´s Dogma combat and character customisation systems. I really want Capcom to make another, more polished part of this game, with the game´s "infinite universes" world, the possibilities are endless.

I would buy it without a second thought.
