    What were the games that you loved to play but were relatively unknown games in popularity terms?

    Games that when you told people about they were like 'wtf is that game? I've never heard of it?'

    I'll kick it of.

    SUPER PUZZLE FIGHTER II TURBO

    In the early 2000's one of my mates somehow got hold of this game on playstation. We smashed the shit out of it for a good 12 months.

    It was a Japanese game that was a mixture of Candy Crush, Tetris & Street Fighter. Games were short and sweet (3 rounds at about 3 minutes a round) so it was perfect for big groups.

    Loved vendetta. They had a arcade machine of it at the holiday resort we used to go to every summer hols. Once they left the front door open by mistake and we could push the 2up button for free all day.

    Does Catherine qualify? Was weird, dunno about uncommon. Great game though, unforgiving as hell on even the normal difficulty.

    Blood was great for multiplayer, you could kill people with voodoo dolls and flare guns

    The Lost Vikings. A puzzle game where you switched between three characters with unique abilities, similar to games like “The Cave” and “Trine”.

    Hidden & Dangerous series

    Great WW2 tactical shooter series. Recently re-released on GOG and steam. Worth it in a sale



    Forgotten Hope 2 was a mod for BF2 that took all the best elements of the original game and turned it in to a tactical, squad based, multiplayer masterpiece. It's still getting releases and patched - just no player base in Oz anymore :(

    Huuuge game. Blood and quake were big for me in the mid 1990s

    Hidden and Dangerous and Blood are pretty awesome suggestions. Add Blood 2 to that too. Straight away I remember a few games I played that I never really heard much about since from anyone at all

    Redneck Rampage


    Kingpin. This was big among me and my mates in high school. After we got home from school we'd get a MSN Messenger group chat going then take turns hosting games because of trusty old 56k internet. Single player was pretty edgy back then too!


    And why I clicked on the thread. Boogerman on MegaDrive.

    Call of Juarez looked 10 tomes better than RDR on the trailers.

    I was so pumped for it but the game never lived up to the hype

    Gun was the one I loved in that style.

    Other uncommon ones I really liked were Shadow of Rome which was half gladiator, half stealth and then XMen Legends.

    Terminal Velocity I can’t remember if we had the full game or just a demo but I played this a fair bit

    I dunno. Pokemon Puzzle League? Everyone knows the series as a mon-collecting RPG but that title is a Tetris-inspired puzzle game.

    jagged alliance 2. isometric turn-based rpg/action, not too unlike early fallout. high replay value, still play this from time to time.
    world empire (pc). risk type game, includes pictures of yellow skinned people with slitty eyes.

    bar games

    nightmare on elm street (pc). atmospheric, and one of those notoriously difficult games.

    dark earth

    Not sure if they're seen as weird or uncommon, but I always love Hexen and Heretic back in the mid 90s

    None of my mates played it, so it was uncommon for me back then

    I'm kind of suprised Blast Corps never got a sequel or reboot. It was an extremely good puzzly type game.
