So c’mon, we all know what the big MMOs are right now, the ones that always come up in conversation. You know, the ones with titles like Elder Guild Warcrafts XIV of the Old Republic. Thus, when we go hunting for titles beyond the obvious, it’s important to keep one’s eyes open for key words — one of which is “underrated.”
“Underrated” always catches my attention because it suggests a solid game that I might have already dismissed for superficial reasons or premature judgment. Maybe it’s a game that looked too goofy for me to like it, too complex to learn, or too out of the norm for my atrophied mind to comprehend. And once in a while, those underrated recommendations result in a fun personal discovery of titles like Fallen Earth, Project Gorgon, and Dungeons and Dragons Online.
I think many of us champion an underrated title or two, so today I’d like us to sound off for the benefit of the whole class. New or old, which underrated MMO should others give an honest try?
