We’ve all seem them: The games that fill the $5 bin at GameStop or receive an exponential number of negative reviews on Steam. What most people don’t realize is that these unknown, B-rated, and ‘scorched earth’ reviewed games are frequently a game someone falls deeply in love with or at least enjoyed way more than they thought they would.
Do you have one? What is it?
For myself a few mentions are Two Worlds/Two Worlds II, Cold Winter, and Mass Effect 1. Now, I know Mass Effect is easily one of the most recognizable and critically acclaimed game series in the gaming community, but the first title does receive a tremendous amount of flak for various reasons such inventory micromanaging, asshole Mako driving, and skills. So due to it’s negative reception compared to 2 and 3 I am including it in my list of “Unknown and Poorly Reviewed” games.
