Undercover Agent, cause I liked the setting and the amount of options you have to solve missions.

I remember thinking Sixth Grade Detective was very charming. It’s a shame to find out it wasn’t popular.

I felt the same way about For Rent: Haunted House. It’s a delightful game with a rather original premise, but it seems most known for being a colossal flop.

And To the City of the Clouds was never one of my all-time favorites, but a lot of people actually seem to loathe it and I’m not entirely sure why.

Big angry that MetaHuman Inc. isn’t on any of these lists!! It has a +1 from me.

If MetaHuman isn’t here, that means it actually did decently well when it came out (and has continued to do well). That’s a compliment to its quality, I think.

But I agree with you that it’s a very good game, I’d like to see the setting again.

Metahuman is in the top-twenty highest grossing games of all time; that means it’s not “underrated.”

@jjcb you can see the setting again in both The ORPHEUS Ruse and Wraiths of Sentinel.

Oh! I didn’t realised these polls were based on lowest grossing games. Makes sense for Metahuman to be up there. Would be super interesting to see a list of the top grossing HG’s and CoG’s.

Thanks for the info :slight_smile:

I didn’t even realize the second Superlatives part was out. I enjoyed the first installment.

Broadway: 1849 and chronicon are always 2 of my favourite CoG

In Broadway。。。There is always the vibe of small time commoner trying his best to succeed in business endeveur , and by fate meet true love who is in trouble working for rival company, it is a marvelous act to manueveur a civil rescue and accompany each other in later days. I am kind of in similar situation in my real life now but i don’t think it went as smooth as my MC in Broadway, strange though, no wonder i love Broadway 1849 since 4 years ago, it was as if a walk of my future self, i hope my ending will be as happy as my MC in Broadway

Wow, I cannot believe Weyrwood isn’t that popular. And Light Years Apart is such a gem! An Odyssey is depressing as hell, but it was also one of the few books that stayed with me.
