PSXE Poll: inFamous Simply Doesn't Get Enough Attention
Depending on how you look at it, any number of games in 2009 could qualify as the "most under-appreciated," but you guys are definitely leaning in a certain direction.
While Killzone 2 and Demon's Souls made good showings, the majority believe that Sucker Punch's awesome inFamous has gone most under-appreciated since its launch earlier this year. It's certainly one of the best new IPs on the market and really surprised a lot of people when it arrived. It remains one of my favorites of the year and I believe it also received the Best New IP award from IGN; the latter is the type of praise this game needed. It didn't sell particularly badly but it's almost as if we stopped hearing anything about it a mere month after it hit store shelves. The game featured a GTA-like sandbox environment coupled with slick superhero powers and a dark storyline that was particularly impressive for such a title. It was just a ton of fun to play and with KZ2 and Demon's Souls pulling down some high acclaim in year-ending awards, perhaps it's even more fitting that inFamous won. We'll definitely be looking for more info on what we have to assume is inFamous 2, currently in development at Sucker Punch studios.
But now we're pulling the reverse: speaking from a review score standpoint now (less about popularity, as this previous poll was), what game do you believe has been unfairly praised? In other words, what's the most overrated game of 2009 in your eyes? Is it the spectacular Uncharted 2? Killzone 2? Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2? What? Vote now.
