Well... I don't know how under- or over- or at all-rated these games are, but I'll mention them anyway.
Firstly, the online Flash game "N". It is, quite simply, pure awesome, even without a story.
Basically, you play as a super-fast, super-agile ninja, with the goal of running, jumping and climbing your way through the stages, collecting items, until opening and leaving through the door in each stage. The item collection is somewhat similar to Jetpack, though the main item, gold, increases the ninja's "life span" (ie, time limit), and only one item each level is needed to open the door.
The game is very difficult, and very frustrating at times. Death happens often, not just because of the many different enemies in the game, but also because of the physics; if you hit a surface going too fast, you splatter. That simple.
However, the game is still very good fun, especially after you get the hang of some of the flashier maneuvers the ninja can do.

Second, the old DOS game Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games. I'm not sure if that counts as an under-rated game, I only found it years after its time, but it's still good. Basically, it's a squad-control team-based strategy game, and you control a squad of mercenaries in their various missions: assassination, extermination, demolition, retrieval, all kinds of things. In the campaign mode, the mercenaries can improve between missions, and you can actually use the money rewards for completed missions to do things like pay your mercenaries (which you always have to do), hire better ones, upgrade your equipment, that kind of thing.
It has a random campaign and mission generator, which I've always thought adds a ton of replayability to a game. Unfortunately, all it can generate are the enemies and objectives; it only uses the actual maps you already have. However, there are enough of those that come shipped with the game to keep from getting stale for a while, and even if they do, there's also a level editor you can use to make your own.

Metal Arms: Glitch in the System for the GCN is a great RPG/shooter. You play as Glitch, a strong robot with an arrray of weapons that you use to blow up enemy robots. It's challenging, yet almost mindless as you get later in the game, being that you basically shoot anything that moves. The graphics and plot are nice, and the controls are fluid, once you get used to them. If you can tolerate the swearing every five minutes, this game is very, very good.

Well I have a new game... It's a NES! That means unknown for most of us Very Happy.

Blaster Master... Oh man... This is one really hard game, a must beat in one sitting because... Seriously I swear... No saves... No passwords... And man its long! I have to hope my NES doesn't overheat before I beat it. About a 1 1/2 hour game to play through, longer or shorter depending on if you know where to go. And man! That last boss is haaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrddddddd....

Story is... Well... Lacking... I shall tell it in kindergarten style storybook form!

See Jason (Me?) and his frog.

See the frog jump away from Jason.

See the frog land on random radioactive box?

See the frog grow about 10 times in size.

See the frog jump down random hole.

See Jason is shock!

See Jason jump down hole.

See Jason see a tank.

See Jason get in convient battle suit.

And the game starts!


It plays like Metroid, except you have a tank. You go around to different areas collect items then backtrack. But the kicker is you can exit the tank and go on foot. You need to do this to go into random dungeons. One dungeon in each area has a boss (3-4 dungeons per area) and deafting the boss gives you a new item. But another kicker is when you enter the dungeon you go to an overhead exploring shooter style game.

It rocks. Seriously check it out!

Also I sure do like "..." today don't I?

It may not be as obscure as the other ones here, but The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is the best RPG I have ever played. They have a fourth installment now that I haven't played yet, so I'm not sure how that one is, but it recieved a lot of hype. Probably because people figured out how awesome Morrowind was. The graphics are beautiful, the storyline is excellent, the music is wonderful, and the gameplay is very fluid. The game is very in-deapth. Also, it fits the RPG class very well because it's free roam and you don't have to follow the storyline. There are tons of other things you can do that are very fun. Also, you can do basically whatever you want. You can kill Anyone, no exceptions (It does alert you if you've killed someone essential to the main story). You absolutely must play this game.

Two people I know were into that and got a bunch of games in the series too...I never really felt the interest so much. Just never really hooked me.
I prefer the Fallout games for open ended civilian killing and free-roaming with story and sidequests. x3

Mmm, sandbox games. Very Happy

Fire Emblem 4 isn't obscure now that everyone knows about the Fire Emblem series, but it's good. Really, really good. The gameplay is a bit more complex than in most FEs, and half of it involves getting the right people to pair up (if you ever play it through, you'll see why). It can be a bit cheesy sometimes, but there are some heart-wrenching moments, especially towards the end of the first half. If you ever get the chance, download it, patch it, and play it. It never got released here, so it's legal. Razz
