If everyone thought JSRF was a terrible game, it wouldn't hold an 85 on Metacritic and run you $20.

Mega Man 7. The oversized sprites everyone complains about make the game beautiful, the final boss is a nice challenge, and I don't care what you say, those sidequests were amazing additions that should have stuck with the series. The only one I missed on my first run was the Proto Shield, and that's only because I beat it in multiple sittings. I found his three hiding spots, but I turned the console off in between them.

^This. Mega Man 7 is one of my favorites in the classic series. Probably 2nd place to 2 actually.

I don't know...I just seen STACKS of them at places and almost everyone I talked to was not interested in the game. "Oh that thing that came with the XBOX? I traded mine in right away. It just looked like some crappy skating game...."

Plus the game actually won awards for "Most unfairly ignored".

I would have to say that the biggest game I really do appreciate in every way that everyone else seems to hate is Golden Axe Beast Rider. I would also lump Sega Rally Revo, Spikeout Battlestreet and Sega GT (the original) into that group, but some of these got good reviews but poor sales.

"Ignored" is an entirely different thing than "hated."

Since there's another 7 lover in here, I guess I can get a bit more risque. Mega Man Star Force 1. Yes, 2 and 3 suck just as much as people say they do, but SF1 actually tried to innovate, had a mildly difficult postgame (not up to BN standards, but it actually gave me a game over or two, unlike the rest of SF put together), and had some great boss designs. The story sucks, but hey, it's not as bad as BN4/5's ones. DURR HURR HURR EEEEVIL.

More and more often recently it seems I'm one of the few people that really liked Final Fantasy XIII. :/

Same here. It's only linear for five more hours than 6 was, and is open ended for 70 more.
