Lord Gumbos Top 5 underappreciated games
This was just your standard puzzle/platformer, but it had charm. You really start to appreciate the characters, art style, and unique humor that I just don’t see in games anymore.
Vigilante 8 may look at first glance to be your standard shoot-em-up, but with cars. I assure you, this is not the case. Vigilante 8 may be a shoot-em-up, but it’s certainly not standard. Driving around the map, desperately looking for that one weapon you need. Not much can compare to that nowadays.
Yeah, I can hear you now. “Pokémon channel? That game sucked. Why is it on this list?” While you may have a valid argument, you need to look deeper. This game is wonderfully simple. I played this as a kid, and had a great time. Flipping through channels and playing the little minigames, may seem tedious and boring now, but as a kid that shizz was off the hook! It was tubular, groovy even. (Okay, I’ll stop with the 70′s lingo now.) You just have to look at it through the eyes of a child.
This game is notable for being the only Yu-gi-oh game to be featured on the GameCube. The game is an oddity in the Yu-gi-oh universe since it’s not just playing the card game. Falsebound kingdom is a mix between and RTS and an RPG. You make units of 3 monsters and have final fantasy battles. It was a good game, and I’ll always have good memories of it.
And the number 1 most underappreciated video game is…
This game holds the unique titles of being both the first ever hand-held Resident Evil game, but also the only addition to the series to be rated ‘T’. The game had a unique way to fight your enemies, and one of the best battle themes from its time.
