My thread about Live a Live inspired me to make this, as did Menashe saying he likes unknown games. If you know of any unknown game, post it in this thread so we can discuss it. However, if you think a game may be 'underrated' even though it has general knowledge, then it's not really unknown (example: Starhawk is well known amongst gamers/PS3 fans, but it didn't sell well). Believe it or not, there were two fully 3D console games that came out on PS1 & before Super Mario 64. They're very immersive Ultima Underworld inspired dungeon crawlers. They've gotten somewhat larger due to Dark Souls & Demon's Souls, but they're still unknown. They're a lot like Dark Souls except in the 1st person. They're very unforgiving, immersive, absorbing, & atmospheric. The fact that the 1st two games, despite being in full 3D & out before Super Mario 64 (1st one came out in 1994 as a PS1 launch title in Japan, the 2nd one came out in the U.S. in 1995 was just called King's Field due to the 1st official game not arriving in the U.S.), didn't start the polygon revolution like the still phenomenal Super Mario 64 did is a crime. King's Field

King's Field II (Japan)/King's Field (U.S./Europe)



King's Field III (Japan)/King's Field II (U.S./Europe)



King's Field: The Ancient City (U.S.)/King's Field IV (Europe/Japan)


A beautiful, moody, & mature DS game that should've gotten more recognition.
theresia...



Do you think Paper Mario & Ogre Battle 64 are the only worthwhile JRPGs on the N64? Then you're missing out on Super Robot Wars 64.
The Super Robot series in general is wonderful. I believe it has a cult following in the U.S., but this N64 gem is sadly looked over.


Another overlooked & immersive dungeon crawler from From Software that didn't come to the U.S..
Shadow Tower: Abyss



Like any game that came out in 1998 that favored depth & immersion over pretty CGI & 'streamlining', Shadow Tower received scathing reviews from "professional" reviews. However, if you look past the unpolished graphics & bland color scheme, you'll find a rewarding & more enclosed & survival oriented game than King's Field. Shadow Tower is a misunderstood masterpiece. Still, you think they could've pushed the graphics & framerate since it was more corridor oriented than the open King's Field games.

So yeah, post any unknown game you can find.

Great idea of thread.2 games comes straight to my mind :
LEGEND ( Snes ) :


Everybody recalls of the Golden Axe on Genesis. That title was one of the most beleoved Genesis game of all time.
And rightly so.
However, nobody recalls of Legend, the Snes equivalent that is far superior in EVERY comparitement.
First of all, that was the first game that looked like a Arcade game on console.
Second the soundtrack was just out of this world.
Third the game is fun and challenging.
Such a pity it did not get the recognition it deserved...

SKYBLAZER (Snes )


Skyblazer is probably one of the most underrated game of all time.
The game simply amazing and has probably the best soundtrack from the Snes era ( that speaks volume ).
I would dream of a remake of that legendary action adventure platform game.
The funny thing is that it would be on a Sony platform probably as that game was produced by Sony :)

I recommend you check out teh2Dgamer if you want to find underrated PS1 & PS2 games. Check this out too.Knights of the Temple: Infernal Crusade
Awesome action game for GameCube, PS2, Xbox, & PC. It reminds me of Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage for Dreamcast.

Elemental Gimmick Gear

It's a beautifully done top down Zelda style action/adventure. It's also very hard.


Vanark
is a pretty cool shooter that was released at the end of the PS1's life.


I can't really explain this one.

While known to most who come from that time of gaming very little who even know about it have ever played the actual game on the actual Atari Jaguar.... I bought a Jag just to play this game, and I did play it, every damn day for many moons.... I'm a huge fan of aliens and there were some great Aliens console and arcade games before this one from Konami and LJN, but this was the first FPS Aliens game and the reason I defend Colonial Marines now.... I truly love this shit....





NEO-GEO.... It doesn't get the props it deserves....








The Punisher as a game hero has been largely forgotten and I would like to see him remembered.... The CAPCOM Punisher arcade game and Volitions PS2/XBOX The Punisher are the best examples of why I think Frank Castle fits perfectly into the video game mold.... Need more Punisher games like these and less like WARZONE on PS3....








Battle Monsters for SEGA SATURN was one of my favorite fighting games for any system from that era.... It pitted versions of histories famous monsters against each other on huge multi level stages.... B Movie Frankenstien vs B movie Medusa...? Yes please....







Probably one of my favorite SNES games of all time and it never gets the props it deserves....







I love Vampire Hunter D and wish they would try another go at a game about it....









Probably the first truly violent console game I had ever played (along with SMASH TV in the arcades) this game left a standing impact on me.... Before there was Mortal Kombat Fatalities I was lopping off heads in SoS on my Genesis....

Ok you ask me wtf I want from Kojima and Konami and it isn't another fucking Metal Gear (even though I love the MGS series) WTF I want is another Snatcher.... From Shadowrun to Deus Ex nobody has done the Blade Runner setting better imo than Kojima san did with this little known SEGA CD masterpiece....










I'm fond of this series and these two games.... I'm partial to the CAPCOM beat em up for obvious reasons, but the SEGA CD game was also pretty awsome.... Cadillacs, Dinosaurs, wtf more do you need....?







If you haven't guessed I played a lot of SEGA CD in my early teens.... Road Avenger was one of the better games on the system....







SEGA CD had a lot of these Dragons Lair type games, I enjoyed this one quite a bit....







Now why would I have been playing this game at the ripe old age of 13....?





Ok so I'll post more when I have the time.... But yeah I have a ton I would like to mention....

Wonder Project J2....





Neon Genesis Evangelion.... I went through a lot of trouble to import this game when it was new in Japan....




About the closest SEGA ever came to making another Streets of Rage game.... there was a version for XBOX nobody remembers so I'll mention that too....

Next....




I bet nobody knows about this one....

T is a Japanese only PSX game that focused on a little boy and his wish for his mother to disappear, only to wake up one morning to find just that.... And so his adventure begins.... A very surreal tale, even by todays standards....





Jaleco released quite a few beat em ups or brawlers for the SNES.... Tuff E Nuff, Rival Turf, Brawl Brothers, this.... A bunch.... And I played them all damnit....

You keep on pumping out these awesome threads. Keep up the good work!I could be here all day if I went down this road. Maybe I should do each console individually. I'll start collecting names to post later. In the meantime, I have to mention the obscure game that gets mentioned in all these kinds of threads and which no obscure game thread is complete without it (kind of an oxymoron actually):
Moon Remix RPG Adventure

^I wanted to mention that game. It's been called the best RPG of all time, but unfortunately I can't test this myself because the game is so damn obscure there just is no translation patch, and I never continued learning Japanese.------
Not too long ago I played this game, Alcahest.
I think the reason I played it was because it had music from the Kirby guy, Jun Ishikawa. It turned out to be a pretty fun action game with very light RPG mechanics, and though it was linear and level-based, each level allowed for a good deal of exploration. As it can be completed in a single sitting of about 4 hours, it's totally worth playing -- once again, mostly because the music is great.

I'm curious about how a modern ESRB rating is on there when this is the original cover art. Also, how is Snatcher rated T while God Hand is rated M?



ESRB stupidity aside, I have more games to cover.

One of the things I love about the Saturn's 2D games is that they aged perfectly. While Capcom's fighters & Guardian Heroes are perfect examples of this, Astal
is also a smooth & beautiful 2D Saturn game. While the Saturn itself is underrated, there are some games that are well known amongst gaming communities & others that aren't.



Funny how it's 2013 and we still don't have an advanced science fiction space colony like the one in Policenauts
, which takes place in 2010.



While people say that Burning Rangers pushed the Saturn, Bulk Smash still looks better in a technical field.

Don't let Doom, Hexen, & Quake on Saturn sway you into thinking that FPSs aren't possible on Saturn. Because there's still Powerslave
. Ironically, out of the PS1, PC (sloppy console port, avoid), & Saturn versions, the Saturn version is actually the best. It looks better than the PS1 version, there's no slowdown like on the PS1 version, & it's running on the Saturn's high resolution mode. Also, Alien Trilogy is another good Saturn FPS.



Assault Suit Leynos 2
is another high quality Japan only side scroller for the Saturn.

Tempest 2000
is a great example of a remake that doesn't disobey the original. It's not a graphical milestone, but it has a very trippy color scheme & the difficulty is well balanced. It's also on Jaguar, DOS, & Mac.


A perfect arcade transition that runs perfectly while having a ton of stuff going on. It even reminded me of Ikaruga.



Click on this.


Strikers 1945 = another amazing Saturn shump.



DonPachi






Waku Waku 7



Elan Doree is a 3D fighter with dragons & Samurai Shodown style gameplay.



Last Bronx is a great 3D Saturn fighter. It's like Virtua Fighter in a lot of ways.



Three Dirty Dwarves



Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean is a traditional SNES style JRPG. It's graphics & localized dialogue are amazing, and they save the game from it's generic story & battle system. The dialogue is fun & unforgettable.

For you's who might not no I don't do links or pictures. So anyhow

Bulletstorm is a very, actually I think the most fun FPS I played this generation on 360. It really reminds me of a FPS game Nintendo would make. It's far off the beaten path and quite brutal, but funny aswell.

At its simplest form. It's an FPS were you kinda combo people to kill them. Them more things you do to them before they die the higher your combo points.

Example: Kick them to send them flying, while there flying you pump a shotgun shell into them, and they fly into a cactus. You would rack up a crazy 3 hit combo. And this is a very basic combo lol. You can be very creative.

I didn't know that....

I love this approach to threads.... I always think of things visually as well as verbally.... So I tend to put a lot of visuals in my threads as well.... It's honestly why I like GaemzDoods threads as much as I do.... I feel there are plenty of walls of text threads here on TNE, I think GaemzDood offers up something different than most others on TNE in his threads presentations.... I always look forward to them....

I just got this my first computer like 2 months ago or so now.... I'm as nub with a PC as anyone really.... Didn't mean nothin by it Matt.... :p
I was actually kind of sad when I read that Matt don't do da links and such because I thought like he meant he doesn't like dat stuff and I tend to speak with gifs and images most of the time.... Thought to myself well, that must be annoying to have to see me spam this place up with gifs and links and vids and shit.... I suppose its just my way though, I think in cable tv....
I wonder if anyone else feels that way....? :-? I bet some think I'm like a dirty little spammer or somethin.... A blatant self promoter, lol.... #-o
I had no idea Matt and technology didn't mix.... :-B

Dial up? :p
LMAO and no, I have fiber optic.

Also yeah so now y'all know I am very very much a caveman acting like someone who knows how to work technology.

No more lies tho. I suck at technology. I did need help putting up my icon. Everything I visit on the web which is only 4 websites lol are all bookmarked (my wife hooked me up on that).

I've never uploaded a pic, gif, link or anything in any of my post in the 12 years I have been a poster on a forum.

I reckon I do a good job being honest and explaining myself tho. I've never seemed to be misunderstood to the point I couldn't explain without typing my words. So I work with what I know and play within those bounds. Works for me.
