Most underrated game of all time.

Even though it was an Xbox 1 exclusive I think Phantom Dust. Such a great game that deserved more praise than the cult hit it is.

I've never heard of it and I will probably never again.. so it's not rated at all in my case, I don't even remember the name of it.. forgot while typeing my own comment, it's a speck of dust.

ALL TIME?

Probably E.T. for the Atari 2600. It's actually one of the smartest 2600 game designs. Yes, it lost the company money, but they made 2.5x as many E.T. cartridges as there were 2600 consoles in existence. So of COURSE they were going to wind up with a bunch of wasted cash and waste carts. Bottom line: Anyone who read the manual (which was mandatory in those days) pretty much liked it, and it was sure better than the crappy Raiders game...

You must be joking. I STILL remember my extreme disappointment when my friend and I booted up E.T. on my 2600. One of the worst games of all time.

That is an excellent game, but I gotta go with Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter.

E.T. is a bad game, but it is still nowhere near as bad as people say. They literally call it the worst, when I can think of a handful of worse games off the top of my head like Riddle of the Sphinx (2600), SwordQuest: EarthWorld (2600), and Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing (PC).

I think it's got the "Plan 9" syndrome. Lots of people say that's the worst film ever made, but it's actually more like...the film the most famous for being bad in history, than the worst film ever. Sure, it's really, really awful, but there are actually worse out there--just probably people haven't heard of 'em.

So it could very well be the most underrated?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Timestalkers. It's a little Dreamcast game, for those who don't know, that had a "monster-raising" mechanic a bit like Ni No Kuni, had a somewhat odd leveling system, and had some awesome characters, both new ones and previously used in other games.

It's not like "one of the best games ever made," but it's one of those that I really liked that I don't think many people talked about.

I also liked the Record of Lodoss War game they had for Dreamcast, but I've seen at least two other people mention that at some point. So, I'll throw this one out there.

Plan 9 is easily the worst movie I've seen. But Wood had no illusions of it being a good movie.

ET is not the worst game I've ever played. That would probably go to Final Fantasy 3(DS) or Two Worlds. Or any number of crappy shareware games from the 90s.
