The idea of this thread is to share games that only you have played*. Post an obscure game and tell us a little about it. I'll start:

 

225px-Ray_Tracers_front_cover.jpg

 

Basically, you race through different tracks and crash into enemy vehicles. Every track has a boss that you must defeat in order to progress to the next level. Haven't played it in forever, but I remember it being very difficult.

 

* - And maybe a few other people.

Similar premise to the game you posted, sans the boss fights. I don't remember much about it aside from the fact that coming in first didn't guarantee you a victory (you had to do as much damage to other cars in the process) and you could destroy other contestants by landing on top of their cars from above.

YER KUNG FU'S NO GOOD

 

 

Back when Activision had their sh*t together and made kick ass games. You played as T'ai Fu the tiger (obviously) and went around kicking everyone's ass, learing new Kung Fu moves from multiple different animal clans whilst you did it. Really wish they had made a sequel.

Not sure if this game fits in the topic.

 

Here is one that I recall - Battle City. In fact, Battle City and Road Rash are very first video games, I started gaming.
Not certain, but there are 100 levels/stages (or maybe just 80, can't remember) to play, but anyways.
At every level you need to guard the eagle (one at the bottom in gray) surrounded by bricks from any attacks, and you also get new and better upgrades, and tanks as you advance.
I don't have the game now, but it was an awesome game, and even used to skip school to play them :)

Oh yeah how could I forget this.

 

 

Pretty sure nobody ever played it, I quite enjoyed it.

 

As close as you are going to get, other than Vice City.

Neither of these are that obscure.

 

 

Anyway I played an obscure demo of a game, but I don't know what it is. I made a thread about it and nobody could tell me what it was, so I have no idea what I played to this day.

Did anyone ever play this:

 

Urban_Chaos_Coverart.png

 

I f*cking loved it, from what I remember, it had relatively free roam aspects, cars to drive, handcuffing (I think) and some good guns. I think the only thing stopping me from finishing it was I got to a section where there was some mutant thing similar to something out of Far Cry or the L4D charger. Binned it after that.

 

I really ought to find a copy somewhere and replay it.

I played Urban Chaos, but not on PS, only on PC. I recently bought the big box version again because it's one of my favorite games.

 

It's actually on Steam now (since a month or 2/3) for like $5.

 

 

I played Baldur's Gate on the PlayStation (in it's slightly unfinished state, but it's no wonder they didn't finish it). Downloaded from somewhere as triple iso's, never played it for more than 5 minutes, because the loading screens were f*cking killing me. Each time you entered inventory a loading screen, each time you walked inside a building a two-minute loading screen, zaargh.

 

They uploaded it since then to here; http://theisozone.co...c-1-unreleased/

 

So it's not as obscure anymore.

 

If you're interested in other obscurities, there's The Hidden Palace, which used to release prototypes/betas/unfinished gammes.

Yeah I also played Urban Chaos. It's hardly an obscure game though as it was very popular and highly rated. I remember very little about the game (other than it being a free-roam game where you play as Darci and some other guy, with lots of fighting, talking to people and arresting criminals). I don't think I ever finished it because I personally wasn't that crazy about the game.

Mucky Foot's next game was awesome though, and although not very rare at all, I was the only one I knew of at the time that played it. Startopia was a simulation game where you are fully in control of a space station. You build various facilities or whatever and then hire visiting aliens to work there. There are 3 decks, but only 2 can be built on. The third is a biodeck, and although you cannot build there, you can adjust the terrain and edit the climate to your liking. The aim of the game is to turn your space station into a popular tourist hub. Sometimes the station gets attacked by terrorists, get hit by meteors etc. The game has a campaign mode with missions, but there is also a sandbox mode. It was really awesome at the time!

Everyone I have mentioned it to looks at me like I am crazy and it never existed.

 

Also, though not technically retail or especially rare but it was awesome:

Everyone I talk too hasn't heard of these games lol. They're actually pretty cheesy, but the OST is f*cking awesome, and I generally love the atmosphere of both games.

Ironically enough, they're called Obscure haha.

I played both of those, first one was definitely a lot creepier and better than the second one though.

 

I liked how they followed the cheesy genre of high-school horror with all the stereotype characters and still managed to keep it interesting/creepy.

 

Playing that game in co-op was awesome.

Striker 96 was the first game I ever remember playing and spent alot of time playing on it. I especially liked how you could play indoor football aswell as conventional football.

Damn this game doesn't even have an article on wikipedia. Now that's obscure.

Hm, I'll throw two out:

 

This racing game, as awesome as having 5000 square km of open world to drive in is, I've never heard it discussed. It's awesome!

FUEL.jpg

 

Secondly, another racing game but from 2000. All you can find on the internet are shady downloads and youtube videos with a few thousand views at most. It doesn't help there are a few flash/browser games with the same name. Cars, missiles and upgrades.

Daz, I will totally play you in Big Red racing.  I lived on that game back in the day.  IRC I believe it used IPX because IP wasn't the way of the world yet, so we would have to pull some crazy trickery.

This game was almost never taken out of my Megadrive when I was a kid. You could bribe the ref and if the other team bribed him, you could kill him.

Carnivores 2...

carnivores2_box.JPG

You are dropped off in various locations inhabited by dinosaurs, which you are tasked with hunting. I think you started out with a pistol, and the money you earned through kills went to weapons, like a shotgun, rifle, and I think a crossbow. Your prey got tougher over time, starting out with Dimetrodons, to Hadrosaurs, and then eventually larger animals like Stegosaurs, Triceratops, and eventually Tyranosaurs. T-Rexes could only be killed with a shot through the eye. They were ultra aggressive, and could smell you from a far way off. If one saw you, they would chase you forever, as opposed to other animals, who would stop chasing you if they lost sight or you got far enough away. It was pretty tough. I think I killed a T-Rex once, and it was after many many attempts.

I'm obviously not the ONLY person to have played it - in fact if you were to be pedantic you could say none of the games here have only been played by the poster, but I get the idea.

 

I think I was one of very few who played Ico. It was glorious, but hardly anyone bothered with it.

No offense, but Ico was a pretty popular game when it came out.
