Very kind of you to put together such a nice list.  But I do wonder how games that are not even released yet....can be "underrated." At this stage in most of their development timelines....they shouldn't be rated at all. I think sometimes we do the genre a huge disservice when we review, hype, or dis games that haven't even made it out of the starting gate yet.

 

But there are definitely some cool looking games here...for the future.

I seriously have no idea what you're talking about. Only Mytheon, Dark Solstice and Craft of Gods are unavailable to the public and all have small followings even being in closed beta. 

That makes 3 out of a list of 25 (double-checked) that aren't available to the public and one that's not released (Face of Mankind is in open beta and was previously released with a small following). The reason of this post is to expose you to games you've never heard of that have been in the background. Just because you haven't heard of it doesn't mean it's not released

Look at the games, you may find one you like.

Oh, forgot to thank Cecropia and Rauten. Good luck finding one you like. =]

Also, adding a description for Puppet Guardian and marking P2P games and what phase of release they're in. - Done

Went through list today and here's what i have: Ace online, WWll, cities XL, dragonica, fasaria world, gatheryn, rakion, pirates of the burning sea, luminary, istaria, mabinogi, regnum [debatable but ye] and lastly spellborn.

--Those are some i actually respect and found fairly fun to suggest to others.

As for review on ghostX: Why its unique? Ever remember going to the arcade and playing games till your pocket money was gone? Well this time you can play for free. The game has a very arcade style gameplay, its really an action MMO. Besides combat there's some fairly fun quests to do but there not out of the ordinary and can get repetive. The game is a grind based game as many others of its kind, but if you want to just log in smash some things around and go to your daily routine its an excellent game.

Also i kinda feel sorry i can't help you out with more descriptions, when i saw this thread i was thinking of going full out but time is too tight right now. Hate the before Christmas pressure =(

WWll - agreed

dragonica - not even close to the games I made this thread for lol

fasaria world - waiting to see if it ever gets re-released before I add it

gatheryn - agreed

rakion - nope. it was and probably still is pretty popular

pirates of the burning sea - up for debate. once again, the terrible balance between pirates and the British could make it not so much what I was going for. it's more just a terribly unbalanced game than underrated. opinions?

luminary - again, up for debate. I'm not sure if it's underrated or just a poorly done game. if someone with more experience with it could confirm, that would be great.

istaria - agreed

mabinogi - not really

regnum [debatable but ye] - nope haha

spellborn - nope. since it went F2P, it's nowhere close to underrated. it's fully realized it's player base.

It's all good Gabby. I'll get to work adding all of those that I accepted in and hope that people can give me confirmation on whether or not the ones up for debate belong on such a list.

I'm looking for good/innovative games that are underplayed or simply games that offer a play style that requires a drastically  that require a different style of thinking that are again underplayed.

It's also for games that just simply never got publicized and people just don't know about.

It's about games that never really hit the spotlight and/or never really realized the player base they could have had with a bit more publicity. That's why I rejected so many of those. ;)

Remember, just because something's underplayed doesn't mean it's underrated! There could always be a good reason it's not played, lol. 

Also remember, you can always debate to have a game removed, too! Just tell me why you don't think it deserves to be here!

Hmm, i don't believe there's any other action space shooters and its the most suggested game for its type.

 

WWll - agreed

cities XL - agreed

dragonica - not even close to the games I made this thread for lol

--Meh, the combat system hasnt been done before unless you count maplestory and its a fairly good casual game but i guess its too popular.

fasaria world - waiting to see if it ever gets re-released before I add it

gatheryn - agreed

rakion - nope. it was and probably still is pretty popular

--Really? whenever i played there were no more than 200 people on the server

pirates of the burning sea - up for debate. once again, the terrible balance between pirates and the British could make it not so much what I was going for. it's more just a terribly unbalanced game than underrated. opinions?

--Well i think this game was just killed by people expecting too much, ye huge changes happened but its still a unique game.

luminary - again, up for debate. I'm not sure if it's underrated or just a poorly done game. if someone with more experience with it could confirm, that would be great.

--I don't believe its a poorly done game, alot of the reviews have been more than positive but the game still has around 500 players.

istaria - agreed

mabinogi - not really

--Hmm im not sure why, it has a classless system and many great sandbox elemtens

regnum [debatable but ye] - nope haha

--Yeh i only put it up because many daoc vets play it and it has half decent RVR.

spellborn - nope. since it went F2P, it's nowhere close to underrated. it's fully realized it's player base.

--I would disagree, the main reason spellborn couldnt get good sub numbers was due to the lack of advertizing and people knowign about the game. I still see threads of people saying how they couldve missed such a wonderful game

--Don't take my posts as attacks, i just wanted to know why the games weren't considered.

Haven and hearth along with dawntide might also be good candidates. Also in my opinion every single sandbox game should be on the list, as a sandbox fan im always disappointed at how great games are played by so little people. Besides eve and lately fallen earth, other sandbox games are really never heard of...i would even say those two could have alot more sub numbers.

I didn't see Dragonica in the original list.

 

It offers a very unique experience, and even forces grouping depending on your profession!

 It just doesn't fit with the feeling of the rest of the games listed imo...idk why...maybe a 3rd opinion could change my mind. *shrugs*

WWll - agreed

cities XL - agreed

dragonica - not even close to the games I made this thread for lol

--Meh, the combat system hasnt been done before unless you count maplestory and its a fairly good casual game but i guess its too popular.

-Way too popular. =]

fasaria world - waiting to see if it ever gets re-released before I add it

gatheryn - agreed

rakion - nope. it was and probably still is pretty popular

--Really? whenever i played there were no more than 200 people on the server

-It's been dubbed the most hacked game in history. It has to have some amount of popularity, lol. Plus, if that's indeed the case, it's not a game I want to push for players. xD

pirates of the burning sea - up for debate. once again, the terrible balance between pirates and the British could make it not so much what I was going for. it's more just a terribly unbalanced game than underrated. opinions?

--Well i think this game was just killed by people expecting too much, ye huge changes happened but its still a unique game.

-True...but still, I can't help but think poor design choices killed it more than it's just an underrated game. Past subscribers would probably agree.

luminary - again, up for debate. I'm not sure if it's underrated or just a poorly done game. if someone with more experience with it could confirm, that would be great.

--I don't believe its a poorly done game, alot of the reviews have been more than positive but the game still has around 500 players.

-Eh, maybe not poorly done, but aimed at the wrong crowd? Idk. When I played it felt like it had great ideas but none were implemented very well.

istaria - agreed

mabinogi - not really

--Hmm im not sure why, it has a classless system and many great sandbox elemtens

-Most everyone knows the name.

regnum [debatable but ye] - nope haha

--Yeh i only put it up because many daoc vets play it and it has half decent RVR.

-Settled to stay off, I guess.

spellborn - nope. since it went F2P, it's nowhere close to underrated. it's fully realized it's player base.

--I would disagree, the main reason spellborn couldnt get good sub numbers was due to the lack of advertizing and people knowign about the game. I still see threads of people saying how they couldve missed such a wonderful game

-Alright, in that case I'll probably end up putting it up. Still, I can't help but feel most know the name now. God knows most here do. It was posted in the majority of LFG threads for 2 months.

--Those are some i actually respect and found fairly fun to suggest to others.

-Fallen Earth isn't quite a sandbox. After playing for a year and a half, my opinion is pretty much solid on that. =]

-EvE isn't close to underrated though. It has one of the higher sub rates of any MMO out currently.

-Haven and Hearth is a good idea.

-Dawntide is too early to tell. It could have a huge jump in popularity nearer to release when more content is in.

LEXIS! See the above discussion, lol.

Gabby, what's your opinion on putting Golemizer on the list?

EDIT: It should be noted that games like Mytheon could be taken off the list closer to release. The only reason it's there right now is because 1. It's different and 2. Even with closed beta coming soon, there are still only about 20 regulars on the forum and there aren't people bouncing up and down asking to get in. There were a few with invite issues, but they disappeared right after it was resolved.

Well fallen earth being a sandbox is debatable but i would say its still worth it to go on the list, only true mutant bashing game we have XD. As for golemizer, yes definitely cant believe i missed it, it really is a great game.

 Alright, I'll be adding the games we've agreed on as soon as I can tomorrow. Until then, I'm going to bed, then school, lol.

Hoping for more suggestions for when I come back!

You could also check out warrior epic and crimecraft, both have potential to be great games and are still very fun to play but ye devs taking bad steps do lower the number of player significantly.

Wow for one day this list has surely expanded. Plenty of games to try out. I'm downloading Face of Mankind now and I might just try to play Wurm. I've come close to playing it many times but never bothered. Third times the charm. =)

Also This list is great would love to see it stickyed!

 EDIT: and i just realised it was. Wow i'm slow. lol

Lol, yeah, I'm pretty honored that it actually got stickied. =]

Working on adding: WWII Online, Cities XL, Gatheryn, Istaria, Spellborn, and Golemizer.

Any more suggestions?

I saw what you said in 3rd page so for you to add it in the list:

Ace online is a great flying mmorpg and you can go out of the plane, level and change parts :D It's pretty underrated and not that popular but still not a bad game.

Maybe if I'm going to have my Xfire profile up, I should start using Xfire...

Eh, no. It is well known by the MMO community by now, and not often for good reasons.

It's been about 4 - 6yrs since I Played, but it's still Exists.

Really great thread btw. Any true gamer should start checking out some of the games you listed, I know I will. Some of the smaller games can be really inspiring, even if they can't keep your attention long.

 

I used to play Hostile Space YEARS ago it is really good.

After personally playing it the other day, I have to say that it does have a familiar addiction factor. =]
