    Adventure Island IV for the Famicom. it was the last game for the console and it was a great swan song. it plays pretty different from the other adventure island games but that doesnt make it bad. its way more metroidvania like.
    Also corpse party too, for the 3ds, PSP and PC. 3ds version is the best as far as i know, its psp version with a better camera and second screen. but its at 240p tho. im not sure if corpse party is considered obscure though...

    im not sure how obscure this game is but I haven't seen many people talk about it. picross 3d is probably one of my favorite ds games of all time. it has a bit of a steep learning curve but once you get that over with, it's really fun to break bricks and find out what's inside!

    i havent tried round 2 yet though, hopefully its as good as the first!

    I remember Alundra being extremely difficult to get into and it never successfully held my interest. I never progressed much in the game as a result. It would be interesting to revisit it now and see how I react to it.

    Cars 2 for the Xbox 360/PS3/Wii (the PC version is godawful, get the 360 version if possible).
    It's a really fun mario kart clone.

    I love all the picross games, and the 3D ones are brilliant. You're gonna love Round 2.

    Overlord : Raising Hell and Overlord 2
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    These two games are genuinely two of my all time favorites! If you have ever played the Pikmin series, it is has somewhat similar mechanics. You are the Overlord, and your job is to rule the world with EVIL! It is somewhat like a twist on the classic fairy tale, if the main character was evil and the setting was comedic. They are really fun games, with some nice looking character designs (especially in Overlord 2) They have some really funny writing along side the gameplay, and Overlord 2 is just an amazing improvement on pretty much everything that Overlord : Raising Hell did. It does show some of its age with Overlord : Raising Hell, with some awkward controls at times, but usually the controls work fine (better with a controller if on hand, but not required.)

    Overlord : Raising Hell is the base Overlord game with the DLC, which is also super fun and I highly recommend!

    Shining Soul II, for GBA. The story is terrible, but the Diablo-lite gameplay loop kept my hands on that Game Boy for hours.
    For that matter, the 3DS' Heroes of Ruin is kind of a similar story. Didn't spend as much time with that, though.

    Gauntlet which is on the sega master system is a pretty good game and well a little obsure as well.

    Shogo: Mobile Armor Division was a weird one. Half mecha game, half FPS, full on anime lol. I had a lot of fun with it when it came out, and still enjoy revisiting it sometimes. Being a mech and squashing enemies is always fun.

    There's lots of open areas to explore and some fun guns too. There is fun to be had just by messing around with cheats, as this was from the era of developers experimenting with cheat codes and secrets.

    It was a pretty amazing game for the time, imo. And I just learned it's a Monolith game!

    Also available on GoG

    All the Pokemon Ranger series to NDS. This games are amazing, but i don't see many people talking about them.

    (btw i don't recommend playing this games on an emulator because of the use of the stylus during the game. You have to spin your stylus as crazy to capture a Pokemon and doing this with a mouse may give you a little bit of pain.)

    Bug Fables! It's a fantastic spiritual successor to the original Paper Mario games and no one seems to know it exists.

    It's available on all platforms, and only 20 bucks.

    Naruto Gekitou Ninja Taisen 4, the best but unfortunately japan exclusive entry in the Clash of Ninja series for the Gamecube.
    A great 3D fighter that can be enjoyed whether you're a fan of the Naruto anime or not!

    The graphics still look great, especially with emulators having the ability to upscale the graphics to 1080p or even 4K. While obviously not as pretty as the newer games in the series, I still believe the cell shaded style holds up pretty well.

    Custom textures and translations gives you the ability play most of the game in english, so the game being a japan exclusive is no longer an issue.

    The gameplay is easy to pick up, but hard to master, and gets a lot more fun when you discover the more advanced techniques like y-cancelling. It's get's surprisingly deep, depending a lot on reading your opponent and properly managing your meter.
    The game includes 39 characters, offers up to 4 player multiplayer, as well as both single and team battles.

    Thanks to emulation it also has a somewhat active online community, with tournaments running regularly now during the pandemic!

    Here's a great video introducing the game and it's mechanics if anyone's interested:
