      The production quality of these gets better each time! There are a few of these I never checked out. I'll have to do so.

      Why invite the controversy of calling it the *TOP* 10? Can't it just be "10 Underrated Games"?

      I'm going to have to say it, top 10's in video only format make my blood boil.

        Seconded. I avoid news clip videos for the same reason. I would much rather skim an article for myself rather than watch a whole clip complete with time wasting intros and unnecessary commentary.

          I like how in that Halo 5 teaser the Shack intro and outro are longer than the teaser itself.

      Okay! WAY better with the transitions between each game. The fullscreen number is much better. Let's take it further!

      Make the fullscreen number slide in and out just like the Shacknews title card does at the very beginning. Do that and you'll have a really neat and solid video production.

      Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle Earth didn’t make the cut. :(

      I know I am no expert in RTS games, but I still think that one was absolutely fantastic and is rarely talked about.

      Oh well, at least you didn't get talked out of Ghostbusters.

        Battle for Middle Earth was better than I expected. I was surprised with they did with the engine. The game was kinda broke though. Elven archers were so op vs ai.

          Warg riders. A must have against those silly elves. That game really demanded combined arms.

        Wasn't underrated, imo. Every one of my friends owned that game and played it to death, which is more than can be said for any of the games in this video. Also, Silverthorn arrows ruined the second one.

      I've been told Dante's Inferno isn't anywhere near as bad as I've heard.

      Could these videos please be supplemented with a list of the picks in the article? I can't be bothered watching the whole video.
