    I'm not finished it yet, but I absolutely adore Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea.

    Can I say Gregory Horror Show? I guess it's sort of unfair to say that seeing as the game was only released in Japan and the UK :guffaw: . I mean it has sort of a cult-classic following but eeeh. Not enough.

    Secret of Evermore for the SNES is one of my favorites,, but seems sort of lost to time.

    On the flip side, I absolutely hate that I spent even $20 on Obitus, also for the snes.

    I doubt it's particularly unheard of, but probably not seen as a serious driving game and unheard in that sense; Hot Wheels World Race is my favourite driving game having got it free with my PS2 back in the daze. I've yet to convince anybody similar of this.

    Mighthave mentioned it before but...
    "Overlord" for the NES was one of my faves. It was a micromanagement style game where you adjusted taxes, bought used spaceships, farming stations, and mining stations, solar satellites, etc... to provide for the people, deal with the consequences of natural disasters, and with occasional battles as you struggled to defend your planets from the enemy or to conquer his planets for your own use.

    Final Fantasy Legends. It's called SaGa in Japan, but when Square brought it to America they renamed it to piggyback off of the success of Final Fantasy.

    I played it when I was a kid and it was one of the first RPGs I ever played, and, even though it was rife with engrish and the plot would probably be considered horribly cliched now, I still love it.

    Ghost Master on the PC. It's also on Steam.

    I played this game so many times, for some reason it just never gets boring.

    The premise is just so unique, what other game lets you command a bunch of ghosts who are here just to scare people? So awesome.

    I've been thinking of making a fan sequel myself, but I'm horrible at programming AI.

    Densetsu no Stafy 1-3.

    They're all fantastic platformers for the GBA only released in Japan. I don't know nothin' in Japanese and they're still enjoyable.

    Sadly, the only one that's been released in America (The Legendary Starfy) was NOT at all that great. They're probably never going to make it to the U.S. market ever again...

    Oh, and also the Pikmin games.

    I just thought of a couple more.

    I actually loved Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego for the SNES. It even came with an encyclopedia (which I still use as a reference). I can't imagine why Iwas so engrossed by this game, other than loving world history. The graphics sucked, there was almost no music and it had a clunky interface.

    Wurm Online: Okay, i get it, most of the kids my age would never play something so... slow. But it's an awesome game. Similar to Minecraft (actually, Notch was working on this one before he started Minecraft... I wonder where the ide came from...?), but much more mature. And I just LOVE this game, but I know no one else (except for my parents and brother and uncle, but my whole family knows about it because of my uncle).

    Deep Sleep, Little Talk At The Back of Beyond and Deeper Sleep: I found these three amazing games on Armorgames. They are all indie games, done by scriptwelder, who has done many other awesome games that no one knows. But these three are my favourite. Deep Sleep and Deeper sleep are the same series. They are point-and-click horror/thriller games. If you play it with friends during daytime, they are not scary. If you play them alone at night... *shudders* I actually wasn't brave enough to play Deeper Sleep to the very end yet. Little Talk At the Back of Beyond, on the other hand, is not scary at all. But it is incredibly sad. It is a small game about talking to someone. Anything else I would say would be a spoiler. All three are very good, but no one knows them.

    Fist or Twist is a great one.  A fighting game where you actually do damage to specific body parts, thereby making moves with those body parts weaker or completely ineffective.  Really awesome game with some unique strategy.  Do you go for the legs because your opponents kicks are really effective, or keep working on his arms because they're both about to be broken?

    Wow, I was going to mention this one, you're the first person I've seen mention this game :)
