Games that do not get the value they deserve, but must be played

The game world is now getting faster, more exciting and harder to follow than ever before. For this reason, some new games may inevitably go unnoticed or be overshadowed by the very big games that come out at the same time. If you're ready, let's take a closer look at our list of games that don't get the value they deserve but should be played.

Games appear as tools that meet the needs of millions of people on a daily basis, to spend time, earn money or in many different fields. As such, the number of games released is increasing every year. Of course, some must- have games may be overlooked and they may not see the value they deserve.

But that doesn't mean that these games are bad. On the contrary, among these overlooked games, truly excellent productions can show up after a while. Although we do not see the value it deserves in this content , we take a close look at our list of must-play games.

Games that do not get the value they deserve when they come out, but must be played:

  • BioShock 2
  • Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice
  • Mirror's Edge
  • Spider-Man 2
  • Sleeping Dogs
  • Until Dawn
  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • Remothered: Tormented Fathers
  • The Saboteur
  • Binary Domain
  • Mad Max
  • Remember me
  • Echo
  • Pathologic 2

Pathologic 2

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Linux, macOS
  • Release year: 2019
  • Developer: Ice-Pick Lodge
  • Metascore: 69
Pathologic 2 welcomes us first in our list of games that cannot see the value it deserves and must be played . The first Pathologic game was released in 2005, and its subject, which deals with the dark secrets of a village where the epidemic prevails, was highly appreciated in terms of its gameplay.

The sequel Pathologic 2, which came out 14 years after the first game , could not get the attention it wanted. If you want to experience a different game, you can take a look at this strange game.


  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC
  • Release year: 2017
  • Developer: ULTRA ULTRA
  • Metascore: 72
Echo, which was released in 2017 and produced a very interesting work in terms of its subject, was one of the games that was not noticed among the chaos. This game developed by former Hitman producers together; It takes place in a palace that learns and adapts to everything you do, on the planetary scale.

In addition, the enemies you encounter in the game do whatever you do. For example, haven't you ever fired a gun in the game? In this way, your enemies cannot attack you with a gun. But as soon as you fire the gun, they learn this and use the same action against you. In this respect, Echooffers a rather strange and unprecedented gaming experience.

Remember me

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC
  • Release year: 2013
  • Developer: DONTNOD Entertainment
  • Metascore: 72
Standing out with its cyberpunk atmosphere and the same themed story, Remember Me takes place in Paris, 2084. In this dystopia, memories can now be digitized and sold. Nilin, the character we play in the game, appears as a "memory hunter" who is an expert in obtaining these memories.

Naturally, Nilin can use these memories to overcome the difficult obstacles she encounters. In this way, learning a new fighting technique or knowledge from each memory brings many new gameplay styles to the game and keeps the game fresh all the time.

Mad Max

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Linux, macOS
  • Release year: 2015
  • Developer: Avalanche Studios Group, Feral Interactive
  • Metascore: 73
Mad Max , which fans of the film series follow and know , unfortunately, did not reach actors other than his own fan base in 2015. Therefore, although it is a very successful game, it remained in its own shell. The same thing happened in the movie Mad Max: Fury Roads, which was released in the same year.

Although the Mad Max game is a successful and beautiful game, the most unfortunate point of this game is that Kojima's Metal Gear Solid V game was released on the same day. This is like a movie debuting on the same day as Avengers Endgame. For this reason, Mad Max was inevitably overshadowed by Metal Gear Solid V.

Binary Domain

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC
  • Release year: 2012
  • Developer: Devil's Details
  • Metascore: 74
Binary Domain, which was released in 2012, is actually similar to the Xbox's exclusive game Gears of War series in terms of atmosphere and gameplay . Even the game is inspired by the Halo series. But these similarities are not the bad thing. Binary Domain manages to be a very nice game thanks to these similarities.

The subject of the game is the kind we are used to seeing in many games with Cyberpunk-Science fiction theme. In the near future, machines are trying to take over the world, and a group of human insurgents are opposing these machines. Maybe Binary Domain's mistake was choosing such a simple topic, we don't know. But those who play this game really get caught up in its story and love the game.

The Saboteur

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Blackberry, iOS
  • Release year: 2009
  • Developer: Pandemic Studios
  • Metascore: 76
Another sidestepped game that is similar to other popular games is The Saboteur . The Saboteur, inspired by the GTA series, Assassin's Creed 3, Uncharted 2 and many more games; It takes us to the Paris of the 1940s and it really reflects that atmosphere successfully.

This game, which combines the theme of the Second World Warwith completely different things, also stands out with its open world. If you want to see some of the most worked themes from different angles and want to experience a different game experience, The Saboteur is for you.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PC
  • Release year: 2017
  • Developer: Stormind Games
  • Metascore: 77
The first names that come to mind when it comes to horror games are usually Outlast, Silent Hill and the like. Although these games are very successful, there are other productions in the game world that do well in the horror genre. One of the best of these productions is undoubtedly Remothered: Tormented Fathers . With its movie-like scenes, chilling atmosphere and soundtrack, Remothered: Tormented Fathers will be your new favorite horror game series.

Star Wars Battlefront II

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PC
  • Release year: 2017
  • Developer: DICE, Electronic Arts
  • Metascore: 78
Star Wars Battlefront II is the game in which Electronic Arts experienced perhaps one of the most unsuccessful promotional projects in its history. EA, which stalled at the introduction of the game, became the center of criticism at that time with the debate about the injustice of the loot boxes in the online mode of the game.

But when we look back at the game now, we can see that most of the criticisms that were criticized in the first time it was released were corrected. Also, Star Wars Battlefront II can be played even for the single player mode only, as the game takes us to the most iconic locations in the movie franchise and brings us against many popular characters from the Star Wars universe. For this reason, Battlefront II is entitled to enter the list of must-play games that cannot see the value it deserves.

Until Dawn

  • Platformlar: PlayStation 4
  • Çıkış yılı: 2015
  • Geliştirici: Supermassive Games
  • Metascore: 79
Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls ekolünden gelen Until Dawn, aslında PlayStation 4’ün en güvendiği özel oyunlarından bir tanesiydi. Fakat Until Dawn, hem ülkemizde hem de dünya çapında beklediği ilgiyi pek yakalayamadı ve unutulup gitti. Aslında kült bir oyun olma potansiyeli taşıyan oyunda neyin yanlış gittiğini kesin olarak söyleyebilmek ise çok zor.

Fakat oyunun hak ettiği değeri görememesindeki en büyük etkenlerden birisi, oyunda verdiğimiz kararları değiştirmek için belirli bir bölüme geri dönemiyor oluşumuz. Bu sebeple oyuncular yaptıkları seçimleri değiştirmek için tekrar oyunu baştan oynamak zorundakalıyor. Fakat yine de Until Dawn, en kendine has PS4 özel oyunlarından biri ve kesinlikle daha büyük bir ilgiyi hak ediyor.

Sleeping Dogs

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, macOS
  • Release year: 2012
  • Developer: United Front Games
  • Metascore: 80
Sleeping Dogs , which we can describe as the GTA series adorned with Chinese street themes , has a good story and an unobtrusive gameplay. Still, the game, which is well below the radar, is spoken from time to time, but it is immediately forgotten.

In Sleeping Dogs, where we witness the story of the secret police named Wei Shen on the streets of China, we personally experience the difficulty of making choices between street life and policing. These gangs who rule the streets of China, known as the Triad, are really no joke.

Spider-Man 2

  • Platforms: PlayStation 2, Xbox, PC, macOS, Nintendo DS
  • Release year: 2004
  • Developer: Treyarch, VIcarious Visions, The Fizz Factor and others.
  • Metascore: 80
Spider-Man was one of the superheroes who did not smile much in the game world until 2018, unfortunately. Especially with the network, which is very difficult to accomplish mechanically, it could not be done properly. For this reason, Spider-Man lovers in general were staying cold against the games of the series.

However, the Spider-Man 2 game , released in 2004, can be considered a complete success. That's why Spider-Man 2 now manages to be on our list of must-play games. Spider-Man 2, which is way ahead of the year it was released in terms of gameplay mechanics and story, offers a very successful networking mechanic as well as an open world. Although it has been 16 years since its release, you can still play Spider-Man 2 and have fun for a few hours.

Mirror's Edge

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, iOS
  • Release year: 2008
  • Developer: DICE, Electronic Arts
  • Metascore: 81
Mirror's Edge , one of the most innovative games of its time , is a production that has been overshadowed by the games inspired by it. This becomes more understandable, especially when one of these productions is Dying Light. The FPS parkour gameplay that leaves our mouth open in the Dying Light game is actually first seen in the Mirror's Edge game.

Thanks to the flawless camera movements, the tracks in Mirror's Edge become more realistic, dangerous and naturally enjoyable to play. Although Mirror's Edge is criticized for the designs and shortness of the episodes, it offers you a parkour game experience you have never experienced before.

Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC
  • Release year: 2017
  • Developer: Ninja Theory
  • Metascore: 83
If you're into Norse mythology , your first stop after 2018 God of War should be Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice. Home to a story where you will dive into the dark sides of mythology, Hellblade also touches on themes such as the human mind and mental illness through mythological subjects. Hellblade, which has a quite different structure than the classic third-person action games, takes us on a dark journey towards the hell of Norse mythology.

BioShock 2

  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, PC, macOS
  • Release year: 2010
  • Developer: 2K Games
  • Metascore: 88
When the first game of the BioShock series was released in 2007, it had a big impact in the game world. BioShock's sequel BioShock 2, which brings a new breath to the game world with its steampunk atmosphere, story told and fluid FPS gameplay, was an excellent game, but it never got the attention of the first game.

BioShock 2, which adds detail to the story of the first game and surpasses the first game with its new weapons, graphics and gameplay, was not played for some reason. The reason for this was that BioShock 2 was very similar to the first game in general, although there were some changes and improvements. Critics who did not see this as a problem gave the game very high marks. But these points were not enough for the players, and BioShock 2 was the most uninteresting game of the series.

We have reached the end of our list of games that do not see the value they deserve but must be played. What do you think about the games on the list? In addition, you can share the games that you think do not see the value they deserve, in the comments section.
