Top 10 Underrated Video Games Of The 90s

the house that produces the most spice will control doom welcome to watch mojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 underrated 90s games [Applause] [Music] for this list we’ll be going over the games from the 1990s that were overlooked upon initial release and in retrospective examination to be clear none of these games are more underrated than the others they all deserve more attention the order is just our preference if there’s an underrated 90s game that we overlooked please let us know your favorite hidden gems in the comments [Music] number 10 beetle adventure racing racing games tend to be more serious like need for speed or involve exaggerated characters on carts using special items to win races or in arena battles beetle adventure racing may have been made by the team behind the former but it’s somewhere between that and the latter [Music] record featuring all vw new beatles the game also had longer race tracks a few special items and a battle mode although overshadowed by several other racing games on the nintendo 64 beetle adventure racing is still the most fun you can have involving beetles without hitting your friend on the arm you’re the champion number nine blast course made by rare blast cores is totally different from the company’s usual famed platforming games rather it’s an action puzzle game to stop a runaway truck carrying a nuclear missile the player must use a variety of vehicles and mechs to clear debris and create pathways to ensure it doesn’t explode i hope this works while it did well critically and financially blast cores remains much less well known compared to some of rare’s other titles on the system also its unique premise and somewhat technical controls have ensured that it’s not as accessible as other games you’re just trying to impress me number eight tenchu stealth assassins sorry i stopped for some refreshment you have done well you would think it’d be impossible for any game where you play as a ninja to be underrated but it is the game features two playable ninjas as well as a ton of weapon variety and different storylines though the missions remain the same [Music] the mice come out to play although tenchu stealth assassins did well at the time of its release it was quickly overshadowed by other contemporary stealth games that came out soon afterwards like metal gear solid and sure the voice acting is kind of corny but it was still the 90s man besides any game with a grappling hook gets a pass on almost anything it’s just you and me now number 7 body harvest [Music] it’s amazing that body harvest has flown under the radar as long as it has particularly since the developers behind it eventually became rockstar games a lot of ideas present in body harvest would later become staples of open world games like the grand theft auto series large maps full of civilians non-linear gameplay as well as tons of vehicles and weapons you can use are all present here they just happen to be in a game in which you travel through time fighting aliens although not as expansive as later titles it’s still a fun and unique experience number six dino crisis gail you’re still alive good timing what is it another lizard that’s no lizard it’s a dinosaur what if the guys behind resident evil made a jurassic park game that’s essentially what dino crisis is and it’s as awesome as it sounds its survival horror elements rely on a few more jump scares but the familiar locked door areas and limited inventory and ammo should be familiar to fans of capcom’s zombie franchise dino crisis proved successful initially and spawned a few sequels but it has been overshadowed heavily by resident evil and the franchise is essentially dead it’s due for a comeback and frankly dinosaurs are way cooler than zombies [Music] number five parasite eve parasite eve is a survival horror themed action rpg despite being said in new york the game never really caught on among western gamers probably because it’s the sequel to a novel still regardless of whether you read the source material parasite eve is a fantastic game with dynamic combat customizable weapons and a fantastic soundtrack for those who love square games parasite eve is a more mature and grounded game than their usual fantasy rpgs mostly but still has all the polish and quality fans expect from the company if you can find a copy it’s worth checking out number four dune two the building of a dynasty the house that produces the most spice will control doom dune is one of the most influential sci-fi books ever written and it’s only fitting that a video game based on it or rather its first film adaptation is similarly impactful arguably the most important real-time strategy game ever made doom 2 didn’t invent features like fog of war resource gathering or managing units with a mouse but it did bring all these elements together for the first time 2 paves the way for franchises like command and conquer and warcraft to hit it big sadly it has been largely forgotten when compared with those big names yes sir moving out number three jet force gemini space shooters are everywhere and back in the late 90s even rare tried their hand at one jet force gemini feels like a hybrid between third-person shooters and the adventure platformers the company is known for making for an unusual blend of gameplay elements with three characters with unique abilities to play as and over a dozen worlds to explore there’s plenty to experience while there are some clunky things about it such as the controls and some backtracking the overall package is still great and it deserves more attention number two power stone [Music] you really don’t see many games like power stone a 3d arena battler power stone features a colorful cast of fighters pitted against each other to win you must collect power-ups and items to defeat your foes it makes for a fantastic if hectic game to play with friends honestly the only reason we feel like it didn’t catch on more is that it came out on the dreamcast the system’s poor sales ensured that powerstone never saw the kind of play other contemporary fighting or party games had at the time still if you can get your hands on a copy this is one hidden gem that will power up any party are you ready before we continue be sure to subscribe to our channel and ring the bell to get notified

mischief makers [Music] the nintendo 64 was a console that most gamers looked to for 3d games so many particularly in the west probably didn’t know what to make of mischief makers a 2.5 d side scroller with anime influences and that’s too bad because it’s a great platformer with simple yet challenging gameplay based around a central shaking mechanic that wouldn’t be out of place even on today’s nintendo consoles [Music] it also features a bright and distinctive visual style entertaining characters and a catchy soundtrack mischief makers is definitely a game you should give a shaker to [Music] in the mood for more awesome gaming content be sure to check out this video here on mojo plays and don’t forget to subscribe and ring the bell to be notified about our latest videos
