    Quote from you on the only point of your last message I feel I can argue about:

    "Underrated implies that people feel that "a game is bad" and that the one who's..." Exactly the opposite that you said that you never said people thought a game was bad. Quote was from a few messages down.

    Other than that, I now agree. To be fair, I class overlooked games as underrated because people rate them low enough to ignore. That's just how my brain works. To clarify, we have just had a great discussion that has done nothing at all, but allowed me to appreciate your view of underratedness...

    In essence... Yeah, I don't know how to phrase this without sounding like I was wrong, but... Yeah... I actually agree with you more now (but I still hold a belief that underrated games can fall into different categories - by critics and consumers. Most overlooked are underrated by consumers to me.) (and by the way, I'm quite quick at typing and reading. But yeah, fair assumption)

    In all... I enjoyed this debate, and... I may have been wrong in some aspects...

    ... Actually, uderrated doesn't necessarily mean that people feel it is bad, but not as good as other things which some people feel is inaccurate. A game can earn average results and still be underrated, or even relatively good results in terms of review, and still be underrated in theory if there is nothing wrong with it. Underrated also needs something that is rated higher than it that people feel isn't so good, or is mainstream. E.G a game like Portal is underrated compared to more popular series like Pokemon.

    By the way, I did read your message (there was a 4 minute gap between your response and mine, implying an adequate amount of time to read your message, thanks), there were some bits that I disagreed about purely because underrated is an opinion. I find some underrated games "overrated" because they are that awful, but have a cult following that I do not understand could support such a bad game. It's all about how you argue it, hence why your argument is valid.

    I'm just saying, I believe that the overlooked are underrated, not deliberately, but indirectly as people look over them for other stuff that is more to their tastes. I'm not necessarily saying that they may like the game, but they aren't even willing to rate it by trying it (or watching people play it on the internet). In that sense, it is a psychological thing to rate things, and both underrate and overrate.

    I will admit one thing though, I do believe what you are saying more and more, but I also believe that overlooking something does play it's part in how a game is rated.

    You never said it had a gray area. You treat it as if it is only those that arejudged less than they deserve, what gray area did you describe?

    Actually, no. It depends what you really class underrated as. If people don't even give the time for a game, for any reason, even if it is by accident, it is underrated because it didn't stand out for them. And actually, my argument is alongside exactly what you define underrated is. I class it as the games that have been forgotten or not as highly ranked as I feel they should have been. THIS includes the overlooked games as they didn't even get noticed, and then have faded without being rated as highly as I would have liked. Your argument is equally as valid if you define it as those that got a mark that you feel they didn't deserve.

    It all depends on what you class the meaning of underrated. It's like the word normal - what do you class as normal, as nothing is the same, so is anything truly normal?

    Overlooking doesn't really mean it is in a neutrality area, it's in an area that is undefined. Underrated games tend to be overlooked because people rate other games higher when they perhaps shouldn't, hence why they are underrated to some. It all depends on what you mean by underrated. You mean it to be "a game that is rated worse than it may actually be" (or words to that effect). I class underrated as "games that people rate low or don't even give the chance because of the popularity of overlooked games" or words to that effect.

    What I'm trying to say is that Overlooked games are underrated because people don't know of them. They lack the popularity and may be ranked highly by some gamers, but are underrated by consumers in favour of some other game that may be overrated (or at least not as good but just massively popular)

    That still plays into what I meant. I never said that underrated games are overlooked, more the other way around. Overlooked games are underrated because no one gave them a chance.

    May I just say that technically overlooked games are underrated as they do not get the praise they deserve as people ignore them?

    You haven't seen them all already? I love the Abridged series. They're already up to the season two finale, episode 30. It ends where the Frieza Saga ends.

    XD I still remember the episode where Son Goku and Piccolo have to go learn to drive!

    But if they remade it, then we wouldn't have the scene with Vegeta's Pedophile face! XD Pedo face is still in Kai!!

    Yeah, they're missing out. I don't keep up with Nick, but I do go on there website to watch Korra (Love Avatar, hate the movie they tried to make).

    Plus I disliked Kai. It literally removes half of the content, on top of the fact that the original lacks half of the uncut version. GT failed, and I love the original Dragonball. Sure, Goku was pretty much stronger than everyone, but they made it the perfect level to where he wasn't just PWNing everyone and everything.

    It was amazing, they should've released it in America. I prefer Japanese version anyway, but that way the GT fans across America would know.

    Heh, yeah. Black Dragonballs? Bullsh**. If all seven of those things were in Kami's Lookout the entire time they could have prevented so many of the issues in Z. Major plot hole within the first few minutes of the damn show!

    Also, I love that they added Tarble. Everyone's reaction is priceless when they all shout "NII-SAN!?!?!?"

    Yes, thank you! It was freaking horrid!! I mean, Super Saiyajin 4?? The hair wasn't golden anymore, the eyes stopped looking blue, and Goku grows freaking pink fur. It has nothing to do with Super Saiyajin anything! The whole thing pissed me off.

    Well, on a positive note, there was that special episode made after Z ended. It was still good. Have you seen it? It's called "Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!"

    If not, you should definitely go watch it:

    YO! Son Goku and his Friends Return!
