    Perfect Weapon PS1.

    I remember renting it and all I heard was NO WAY!

    Literally thats it I did not realise that you had to jump across a gap in the Ice so I walked up and down for about an hour hearing NO WAY!

    So when you approach the edge he stopped dead and shuck his head saying NO WAY!

    I obviously thought cant go that way or other way for that matter until maybe a year or so watched on UTube and f**k you just need to jump across.

    But the way it is done you dont think it even possible to jump across.

    After All These Years Back in 96/97 WTF.

    Yeah Gobliins game series are also my favorite point&click games. They're so much fun to play and replay.

    That Gobliins 4 doesn't look like something I'd play though, I'll stick with the 3 first games from the series instead. But thank you anyway for letting me know about it.

    About Woodruff, there's too much dialogue involved and even though graphically is something like Gobliiins, the gameplay is very diferent. But will give it a try soon.

    Actually I've been playing Gobliins on my PSP, and its pure joy! I will try to get Duke Nukem to play it on my PSP too.

    Thanks and best regards!

    You'd think so, but people hate it because it's not Star Fox

    It still holds up visually to this day, shows that Rare was one of the few devs who knew the Gamecube hardware inside and out. Only other company that knew it extremely well was Factor 5, they pushed games beyond the normal fill rate of the GPU.

    mine is Heroes Quest or renamed to "so you want to be a hero"

    this game was so fun, and part of the Serria series of games like Kings quest, police quest, space quest. These games made me love RPG games, and Lori and Cori cole are still at it and you can get Hero-U their newest game on Steam right now.

    Populous the beginning DEMO version
    it had only 3 of the 25 levels, but it was an awesome game
    I later managed to get the full game on PSX and it was even MORE awesome
    Even today, I still play it sometimes

    For me the games that I pretty much grew up on were from Sierra. One of my favourites would be Space Quest. I really enjoyed those games.

    Lots of stuff mentioned here today, don't know if I can match any of that. Most games I know are known cause is popular. I usually find some rare instance of games no one talks about. Only to hear people talk about it when i bring it up.

    One game that does come to mind that I don't think most people pay attention to is Monster World IV. Released back in 1994 in Japan only, and finally localized officially into english in 2012 for download on ps3 xbox 360 and defunct wii virtual console. It part of wonder boy monster world series of games. It was added to sega classic mini thing which is good since it is a rare gem and that console is full of them. (Just wish it was in the sega classic collection on consoles)

    I first played the fan translated one on emulator which was how I knew about it. But only cause I got into the series for not knowing how it was related to adventure island. But Is a great game full of good graphics, and music. I had intended to review the game, but I haven't gotten around to playing it again. But I advise anyone to do so. (And also beyond oasis which i did review, it was my first review so is a bit sloppy) :ninja:

    Now that wonder boy been relevant for the past... 4 years I think. The remakes of the master system games and a new one released in 2017, another new project in production which I'm more excited about. :P

    Did find this when purposely looking for the weird and wonderful on the xbox.
    Had a really odd control scheme and something of a difficulty curve that raises some eyebrows. However get it to click and satisfying as it comes, much like most good shooters.

    If you have ever played Vanquish and enjoyed it then you probably ought to give this a spin if you can reasonably do so. Scratches the same sort of itch for me.

    I did not make the thread so we could play hipster braggart/who has the rarest cult classic game and has been around long enough to remember pong being released. If it is a game that most don't remember/know when you bring it up (as opposed to all those that people do) and you either really enjoyed it, it has lots of memories for you and the like then share it with a bit about it and why.
    I imagine most of the time it will be the older among us that had to think twice before buying a gaming magazine, never mind a game, and maybe had something from a well wishing relative as a present you played because you had nothing else/had driven everything else into the ground. Today/since around the early 2000s yeah anybody can hop online and get a collated list of best games with 50 reviews each, possibly ordering it from the same machine to arrive at you house, then randomly getting games given to you is a bigger ask.
    At the same time what was once popular does drop off a bit and might only be remembered by those looking at the history of companies* and mechanics so opportunities still arise, to say nothing of those that might pick up a bundle of games (or be given some), or have seriously limited disposable income, and then do the whole "waste not, want not" bit.

    *I saw Magic Carpet mentioned a few times earlier. At the time it was pretty big, even if most were more interested in the graphics and tech than the gameplay, and came off the back of Bullfrog realising Populous, a sequel to it and Syndicate, with Theme Park following not long after. It would be a little while before Command & Conquer and Warcraft took over the RTS world but at the time those were some of the biggest names in it. Still I would wager a decent chunk of people have not heard of it today.

    Sad thing is it wasn't even meant to be a clone of Zelda or a Star Fox Game. Originally the game was called Dinosaur Planet and had it's own unique characters and story. But Miyamoto (fearing Rare would surpass his Merio and Zelda) decided to have them replace the main protagonists with Ster Fax.

    I should stop writing about underrated games that I love, I always end up writing a wall of text :(

    Klonoa 2 will always be on the top of my list when it comes to underrated games or games that I have a big fondness for. Many people know about Klonoa: Door to Phantomile which is the first game in the series, released for the PS1 and later gained a remake for the Wii, but it saddens me that almost no one knows about Klonoa 2. Klonoa 2 is a sequel that is regarded by most fans as better than the original, and that's a really high bar to top because Klonoa: DtP is a masterpiece, so it's a shame that it's so obscure.

    I was 4 years old when I first played this game, I loved the original and I remember fondly the day when my Dad bought Klonoa 2 as a gift for me. At time there were almost no game stores in the town that I live, so in my birthdays my Dad used to take me to the neighboring city by train and take me to a big game store. When browsing the catalogue I saw Klonoa 2 and my father bought it for me. Played through the whole thing in 2 days.

    There's a lot of history on why Klonoa 2 and the Wii remake flopped, I blame Namco/Bandai Namco for the crap marketing that they did, I think most people does so too. Klonoa DtP sold millions of copies on the PS1, but after that game Namco just treated the series as crap when it could've been a flagship franchise and mascot for the company.

    So yeah, I eagerly wait for a remaster or remake of this game so it could get some recognition. There's some rumors and trademarks about an upcoming remaster/remake of the first game or a bundle of the two games which I'm really excited, may it shed some light into those beautifully crafted platformers.

    Here's my favorite level from the game and thank you for reading this thing even if was just a little, I want more people to know about Klonoa:

    Oh gosh, I can think of a few older games before the SNES era, but the problem is, I remember them well so I don't know if they count. I used to play this game a lot when I was younger:
    Also the music I think is decent for it time.

    Then this game which seems pretty simular:

    Took me probably a decade-decade and a half to complete this game :wacko:. Funny thing this one or two pieces of puzzle is what kept me from completing the game and once it was figured out, I did another play-through on the game to figure out the game is roughly 10 to 20 minutes long :wtf:.
    In case you're interested, there is another game for the NES (ported from Macintosh) called Uninvited and Deja Vu which also seem to be similar.

    Gothic. A masterpiece of an rpg and one of the best games ever made. On pc and honestly it doesn't get the credit it deserves. It basically did what Botw, Witcher 3, Skyrim and all other open world rpgs has done back in 2001... IN 2001 !!!
