Forgotten games

HEy!

Here we could discuss about that games nobody remembers but were great at their time, or just deserves to be remembered. It's not a game like Little Big Adventure, that's well remembered

I'm thinking on something else.

You could just say the name of the game. Or post a pic, or make a description about it. Or whatever.

Just let us remember that great, yet forgotten, game.


I'll start: Descent Freespace (1998)



You could mention a game that only you enjoyed!

Fifa98

Fifa98 is probably the game I have spent more hours with. I kept playing it even when fifa 2001 was out, until i found out about Pro Evolution Soccer. I was only 6 when I started playing this game and after doing that bit of homeworks they gave me at junior school, that's how i passed my days. Sometimes I went to my friends' house only for playing this game together. It was the most popular one in my class that time (together with Spyro).

Was about to say earthbound, however, taking in account they have a forum about 2x ours and had their last sequel released in the very recent years, I guess it's not really 'forgotten'.

Still:

yeah that game was LEGENDARY!

some other games like this..
_________________________________________________________________________
Hercules Action Game

damnit i loved this game so much.. i played it on a PC but it was also aviable for PS1
_________________________________________________________________________
Aladdin

_________________________________________________________________________
for totally different style: Star Wars: Dark Force

_________________________________________________________________________
and a game that probably has never been famous, but not even that old: Urban Chaos

this game had the Eidos engine used for tomb raider and indiana jones, but you could also
ride cars and climb buildings in a city populated of criminal gangs
i better stop before i get all nostalgic and boring

EDIT OK TWO MORE
Outlaws (Lucas Arts)

__________________________________________________________________________
Desperados

probably not a FORGOTTEN game.. but a RUINED one. Ruined by Desperados 2 that is
one of the most stupid sequels there are on the earth!!

My friends loves that game, and he found it quite recently. And he got some other older friends that also seem to enjoy it.

As for me, well, I think it was awesome for it's time!

While I spent my childhood playing such obscure games as The Anywhere Machine
Word Rescue
and Gizmos and Gadgets.

I found them awesome. Only completed the Anywhere Machine recently...
