Video games are a favorite pastime of millions of people from all over the world. These days, there is an almost endless supply of different games in different genres to choose from. While some games are showered with critical praise, have millions of fans and play amazingly well, other games are huge duds that seemingly no one likes to play.
However, there is another category of video games that fall into the camp of being underrated gems. These are ones that were either rated fairly low upon their release, or simply don’t get as much praise as they should. The following are 15 underrated games that we loved to play, despite them not receiving a ton of critical acclaim or praise.
15. Mega Man 7
Mega Man games have been going strong for decades now and Capcom’s Blue Bomber is one of the most recognizable characters in video gaming history. There have been some spin-offs, but most people would say the mainline series from Mega Man to Mega Man 10 are the definative Mega Man games. Despite all the love the series has gotten, fans seem to just hate Mega Man 7.
While it didn’t offer a lot in terms of new features or gameplay over its predecessors, Mega Man 7 is by no mean a terrible game. It also had a relatively short development cycle, which could be why people aren’t the biggest fans of it. Despite all this, it is still a fun game to play, offers the same platforming fun the series is known for and was one of the best games to hit the Super Nintendo during its later years.
