Favorite obscure games anon 09/20/2022 (Tue) 01:15:58 No. 53
Tell us about the weird games you love no one else has ever heard of. For me, it's Psychic Force 2012. It's a remarkably fun and unusual fighter that doesn't play like much else, but does what it does with aplomb. I still have a great time zipping around throwing fireball at my opponents. How about the rest of you?

>>53 Oh hey, I bought that game a few years back for no real reason. I only played a bit of it but thought it was interesting nonetheless. While I do play a lot of vidya in my spare time, I actually don't delve into obscure games as much as the more popular ones, but here are a few I've finished over the past few years/from childhood. >Metal Max Returns Found out about this back in 2020, really cool JRPG that mixes the gameplay of the OG Dragon Quests with a world like Mad Max. Had tons of fun exploring the world and going from town to town repairing, upgrading and customizing my Tank, great little soundtrack too. Only suffers from a weak story and even weaker party members, a real shame they lose ALL of their personality the second they join your party. Great game though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI1XqEyVowo >Phantom Crash Really unique mech fighter game released on the original Xbox. Fun combat, an okay story, a really cool world but the one thing about this game is that it has an incredibly unique and amazing soundtrack. One of my favourites in gaming. I never finished the game though, despite owning it from when I was a kid. Really should get back to finishing it one day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5otbc54hEg >Mendel Palace Really cool puzzle game from before Game Freak made it big. For an NES game it's surprisingly short and easy, would honestly recommend it to anyone despite its age. I actually found out about it by doing a /vr/ gauntlet last year, never finished the gauntlet as I was given fucking Hatris to complete which was impossible for me, but I'm glad I played it just for Mendel Palace. The soundtrack was also composed by the Pokémon composer so a lot of it sounds like lost Gen 1 tracks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFNmBcIs-Fs >Battle Mania Dirty Pair the game, basically. A really cool side scrolling shooter where you play as two girls tasked with saving the president's son I believe, fun characters, a decent story for what it is, cool cutscenes and a great soundtrack I found. The sequel Vintage is just as good, if not better as it adds a bit more to the game and has my favourite soundtrack of the two. A real shame the series ended on the Mega Drive, I vaguely remember it was going to get a game on the Dreamcast but that never happened. At least they have a cameo in Segagaga. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qlx_C9vfGU >Legend of Valkyrie Not sure I'd call this incredibly obscure since Valkyrie has been in a few games (PXZ) and is considered Namco's female mascot to Pacman, but I really did love her game. Never finished it due to the difficulty but I really enjoyed what I played and I love her character in that game and others. The main theme also sounds like a certain track in Skies of Arcadia which I thought was interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU_l4liOoh8 >Gitaroo Man Fun rhythm game on the PS2, really enjoyed what I played and while it's not my favourite rhythm game ever made I still adore it for being a rhythm game. Flying to your Heart is one of my favourite tracks from that game, and even if the story is kinda meh it makes up for it with the fun gameplay and great OST. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iThvfax4w8o
