Super Mario Brothers 2. My favorite of the three NES classics. Really liked the entire feel of the game and had some of the most unique environments and level design the Mario world has ever seen.

Interestingly enough, Super Mario Bros 2 is so thematically different from the other games because it's a rip off of a Japanese game called Doki Doki Panic. The real Super Mario Bros 2 was more of a direct sequel, but it did poorly enough that Nintendo decided to reskin Doki Doki and present it as SMB2 instead.

Howard Lincoln gets a lot of crap over saying it was too hard, but after having played each SMB2, I have to say the US got the better one. SMB2J was hard, sure, but it was kind of a mess too. The levels were all over the place in difficulty and pacing, unlike the smooth ramping up of SMB1. It didn't really add much except a powerdown and wind, both annoying and not really improvements to the game IMO. Essentially, it reminds me of those Doom episode 4. Unlike the ones prior that had a theme and a progression, these were just fan-quality levels in no particular order where each one kind of existed in a silo that didn't support any of the levels around it.

Besides, Doki Doki Panic was also a Miyamoto game, and in a 2011 interview said it was started as a prototype sequel to Super Mario Bros anyway. For my money, what we got in the west is the true heir to Super Mario Bros.

KOTOR 2, while not exactly hated, was nowhere near as well recieved as the first one. I think KOTOR 2 was almost as good, personally. The gameplay was a lot more fun, and the story was good too. Everyone, I'm sure, knows that it was pushed way ahead of schedule by execs looking for a holiday release, I can only dream about what they might have done if they had time to actually complete the game.

KOTOR 2 got a lot of shit for being unfinished from it's audience, but the critics seemed to enjoy it and look passed that. I think I might try to play through the games again. They don't age all that well, but whatever.

My biggest issue was the text based ending. Did they do anything to remedy this with the new content?

The Steam version was recently patched to add support for modern graphics and the workshop. The devs apparently worked with the Sith Lords Restored Content Mod people to make sure it was in there on day 1. It's easier than what I used to have to do to play it, although I don't know if they released a patch for the old disc versions. In any case, TSLRCM is a pretty good step up however you get it.

agree with KOTOR 2 being underrated. I personally enjoyed the game as much as the first one because it got you into the Jedi action faster. KOTOR 1 required a lengthy amount of time using melee weapons before ever reaching a lightsaber and force powers.

I prefer KOTOR II over the first. The story is so much better and the characters are better. Kreia might be my favorite star wars character outside the movies. It has such a cool view of the force and light vs dark in that revan might not have been bad or good but was doing what was best. Such a cool idea.

Final Fantasy IX is woefully underrated. I think that it came out when it did was it's biggest downfall. I seem to recall at the time people were so ready to move on to the Dreamcast / Playstation 2. That, and I think Final Fantasy VIII is the worst of the franchise so my personal theory is that Final Fantasy VII brought new fans, VIII scared a bunch away that never took chances with IX.

VIII the worst? Heck no I loved it. So ...whatever.

I loved IX as well. Maybe people were geting used to the emo "I'm so misunderstood" protagonist brought by VII and VIII that they couldn't handle an upbeat extrovert? VIII was the worst. And that sudden 180 turn his personality does at the end, ugh...

I liked VIII and I've played it a lot, but it's been a few years. I don't remember the personality change. Is it at the very end of the game?

Elder Scrolls Online, it's not great but it's not as bad as it's been portrayed. It got a lot of flak in the start due to being a subscription based MMO and it never recovered. Even after they changed the payment policy it suffered from it's originally mediocre reception.

It's not Skyrim, but Skyrim isn't an MMO.

Final Fantasy VIII. People give it a lot of crap for the plotholes and the junction system, but it had great characters, a fantastic setting, and I actually thought the junction system was really unique and interesting.

I loved it too, enjoyed the shit out of it when I was a kid and played through it again last year and probably had even more fun. (Minus grinding spells, geez..)

The original Deus Ex game is fucking fire. The new one feels too triple A to me personally. The old ones' got charm even if the graphics look silly.

The original Deus Ex is nowhere near underrated. It's considered by tons of people as the greatest game of all time. Doesn't really fit this thread. Now if you had said Invisible War or Project Snowblind (Deus Ex game that had the name changed after Invisible War's terrible reception), then that'd fit.

Zelda 2. People right it off as that terrible RPG zelda but it's actually a great complex game. It does have a lot of "how the hell was i supposed to know that" stuff though.

Mario & Luigi Partners in Time. The other Mario & Luigi games were admittedly better, but it's not exactly a bad game, and it gets a bit more criticism than it deserves.
