Quoted from AustinGoodrich:
I made this post on Reddit originally, so I apologize if any of you have already read this. The subject line says it all. Let me know your picks! For me underrated would be WCS, Junkyard, Who Dunnit, and T3. My overrated picks would be Dialed In (the art makes my eyes burn; I don't care how good of a "shooter" it is), GNR (both JJP's and Data East's suck actually), Batman 66 and TNA (they're both sharp looking but put me to sleep! More like Napman 66 and Total Attention Span Annihilation). Let me see some hot takes people! But leave poor Addams Family alone. It didn't ask to be the most iconic machine of all-time, so don't say it's overrated just because.
Since the you are talking about rating, not price, that is what I'm going to go with. I'll start out by saying that I disagree with almost every one of your examples, especially with Total Nuclear Annihilation. I have no idea how that game put you to sleep. I would agree that World Cup Soccer is underrated.
I'm just going to go down list and comment on what I rate quite a bit differently then the consensus.
Pirates of the Caribbean - I find this game to be overrated. It's a good game, but it's well outside of my personal top-10.
Batman (The Dark Knight) - It's outside of the top-100, but I'd put it even lower.
F-14 Tomcat - You could argue that all System 11 games are underrated. I'm okay moving them all up, but F-14 would be near the bottom of that list for me.
The Pinball Circus - I'm going to play it at the Pinball Hall of Fame because it's different. It's different, but not that good.
South Park - It's dropped a lot on the list, but it's still overrated. Beyond the theme, it's not a fun game to shoot.
The Shadow - Should be one of the top-tier games IMHO.
Fish Tale - I call it my guilty pleasure game. I currently have it rated as my second favorite game of all time.
Congo - Add this one to the list of games I regret selling.
Indianapolis 500 - I enjoy the three games listed above more, but Indy 500 is underrated too.
Stars (Stern) - I could probably fill an underrated list with pre-90s games, but Stars just happens to be one of the best from that long list.
World Poker Tour - I solid game. Should easily be in the top 200.
Lethal Weapon 3 - Again, I'm shocked it outside of the top 200.
Godzilla - Ditto
Monopoly - Ditto
Wheel of Fortune - Ditto
WWE Wrestlemania - I'm not sure why I like this game, but I really do have fun playing it.
Hardbody - I assume it has to be the theme. The game shoots pretty good.
Batman 66 - The game has grown on me the more I play it. I originally had it much lower, but I'm okay where it's listed at this point.
Rick and Morty - I'm fine with it's overall rating, but it's my third favorite Spooky title. I guess that means TNA and ACNC are underrated.
I think what it comes down to is that I really just like pinball. If I just used the basic Pinside ratings of Excellent, Good, Decent, Not So Good, Poor, Terrible most games would be "Good" or better. Sure I could argue this games better then that game, but you're nitpicking at that point when in reality there are just a lot of great games.
