The neverhood..... 95% of gaming population doesnt even know it exists.
The Neverhood received positive reviews, but was not a commercial success. Its release coincided with the mid-1990s decline of adventure games that also caused the failure of other critically acclaimed games such as Grim Fandango, which were composed in the three-dimensional animation that was mainstream at the time.
Oh and renegade.....there is a mod for it now http://www.moddb.com/mods/renegade-x

Jet Force Gemini (N64)
Operation: WinBack (N64)
Sierra's Space Quest series
Dragon's Dogma (underrated in terms of a sales stand point)
Lawnmower Man (SNES/Genesis)
There are tons! Literally TONS of games, but the ones I recall at this moment are:
Earthbound (mother 2)
the Grandia series
Legend f Legaia
Beyond Good and Evil (though its gained a cult following)
Kingdoms Of Amalur
Like I said that are tons I could list but these are the ones freshest in my memory.
So many great RPG's from SNES and even more so from PS1.
Secret of Evermore - SNES
Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen - SNES
Earthbound (depending on who you ask and before Ness was on Super Smash Bros - SNES
Secret of Mana (this also depends on who you ask) - SNES
Super Mario RPG (this also depends on who you ask) - SNES
Breath of Fire 1 and 2 - SNES
Vagrant Story - PS1
SaGA Frontier - PS1
Brave Fencer Musashi - PS1
Legend of Dragoon - PS1
Intelligent Qube - PS1
Parappa the Rapper - PS1
It was hard for me to list Final Fantasy Tactics since it reached the greatest hits collection on ps1.
Heroes of might and magic 2/3. They tend to make good game lists, but never at the top where they belong. I hate 3DO for giving up on it. Also Star Wars Rebellion. Super cool fun times!
That's way too many tbh
The Yakuza series
Driver San Francisco
Several Adventure games like :The Cat Lady, The Book of Unwritten Tales, Resonance, To the Moon , A New Beginning, Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving. I can go on and on.
Seiken Densetsu 3 or Secret of Mana 2 if you will
Dark Cloud 1 and 2
Star Wars Republic Commando, first time i've ever seen an AI act in a good way when it comes to FPS
Forgot to mention Metroid: Other M, i can understand why some people hate it, but i loved it. Best Metroid game since Metroid Prime 1

A wise man once said: "Does it matter what religion you are?

The myth series of games from Bungie, before Bungie got bought by Microsoft, when they were making Halo. Now that was a balanced game with no focus on resource management and focusing on unit management. Each unit had a point value that you could trade a lot of units for fewer powerful and the other way around.
I'd say Zone of the enders 2, well it's not underrated per say but it's one of the best game I've ever played (and I played a LOT ) yet it's rarely even mention.
As a person above said:
Parasite Eve, Vagrant Story - two awesome games I still have on the PS1.
I would personally throw Dino Crisis into the mix, I had a lot of fun playing that too.

jackal for NES
Harvester for PC
I'd say Legenda of Zelda: Ocarina of time! It's highly regarded but I doubt people really "love" it as much as they say. It's a much better game than just rnning around chopping grass
People mentioned Vagrant Story. I miss that game a lot, might be nostalgia but it felt pretty fresh.
Did that ever get a follow-up?
I think a lot of you don't know the difference between overrated and underrated. Should be games in this thread that flew under the radar and didn't get the attention they deserved/hidden gems.
The guy above me who just said LoZ: Ocarina of Time. The game isn't underrated. It's considered the best game of all time. Or serveral posts up where he listed the best rpgs from SNES/PS1. Those aren't underrated.
