  • FrankZP, previously known as ZedPower, made three great written LPs on the first three SMT games and they're all a blast to read, especially the one on Nocturne, which features great character development and well written dialogue. Enjoy.
  • The entire point of Home Of The Underdogs.
  • IGN has an award for this in games: Best Game No One Played. Recipients have included such gems as Psychonauts and Beyond Good & Evil.

  • Gamespot had an identical award. Later on, they inverted the trope by introducing the "Worst Game Everyone Played" award. The first recipient was the mediocre GTA clone Jaws Unleashed, and it was accompanied with a video featuring Alex Navarro expressing his outrage on said game having sold five times more than Psychonauts.
  • Movies You May Have Missed: Seen here. Two guys who just seriously want to tell you about good movies out there that didn't get enough eyeballs on them the first time around. They make it a point to choose movies that they actually like (even if there's some parts that are just silly) and not just ones that are So Bad, It's Good.
  • The Red Team Round Table reviews media that may not have gotten the attention they deserve on their release and operates on the notion that many things are under appreciated.

  • burronjorsramblesandbabbles is a blog about a few different topics, but frequently Doctor Who and other Science Fiction. His analysis of DW and other things is often very thoughtful, insightful, and detailed. Some of this troper's personal recommended/highlighted posts are a compiled, in-progress history of the Daleks, a post about the parallels between DW and comic books, and a series of posts about the way different writers on the show have handled the Daleks.
  • Channel101
  • Dead Ends
  • Patchwork Champions: A long-running Super Hero Pixel Art Comic-turned-Web Serial Novel, with a large cast of inventive characters and creative stories.
  • Saga of Soul: An unknown gem of magical girl story that frequently uses fridge logic and hard science to make the narrative interesting alongside an interesting set of characters.

  • LIS_DEAD has a lot of interesting puzzles, some of which obviously took a lot of work. And its story is just getting started, and looks to be quite interesting with shadowy government organizations and mysterious supernatural children. But it's currently dying off due to a lack of love.
  • Worm, an online serial novel about people with superpowers is well reviewed but is still not particularly well known. The series is notable for avoiding many old superhero cliches and for operating in Gray-and-Gray Morality
  • On the website TV Tropes idioms seem to be constantly forgotten and unloved and deserve more love.
  • Christina H.: One of Cracked.com's best columnists. Her articles are original, well thought out and well written. However she's not nearly as popular as some of the other writers on the site, and she appears to have gone into quasi-retirement. Some of her better articles here, here, and here.
  • The Zombie Knight. In fact, the entire medium of online serials could do with a lot more love.
  • Expedition Z, a post-apocalyptic zombie Web Serial Novel and its fellow StoryShift brethren Fire and Feathers, Ashfall: Hopeless, The Drunk Boys and many more. You get to decide what happens in the next chapters and sometimes defines the entire plot!
  • David Ross from Agony Booth is a very intelligent reviewer. Especially noticeable in his "Who Framed Roger Rabbit review."
  • The Gondolend series by Will Svensen. It's a series of loosely connected (or sometimes not connected at all) stories chronicling events in Gondolend, a world where people and dinosaurs coexist. It nicely averts Artistic License – Paleontology and features likable, believable characters and scads of detailed world-building, but not many know about it.
  • Steppenwolf: The X-Creatures Project, an original episodic adventure game that Warner Bros. put out through their website in the early 2000's. Sure, the gameplay hasn't aged that well, and the voice-acting is nothing to write home about, but the game more than makes up for it with a genuinely gripping and original story following a pair of globe-trotting Back-to-Back Badasses—a feisty red-haired Intrepid Reporter and a reclusive Great White Hunter scientist in tribal face paint—as they tangle with a mysterious conspiracy and hunt down famous cryptids in exotic locations. Each four-part episode revolves around a different mythical monster (the Mokele Mbembe, the Yeti, the Heruka, the Kraken and the Chubacabra, in that order) in a 24-part epic that plays out like a Darker and Edgier tribute to classic adventure serials. The game is largely forgotten now, but its central concept is awesome enough that the WB easily could have gotten an animated series out of it.
