Man FUCK that game. It has one of the rare distinction of being a game impossible to play if you are colorblind.

On-topic: I don't think there's any games that only one person loved. Der Langrisser I was pretty in love with and while its kind of obscure I still see people mentioning it occasionally. Maybe Culdcept? Hotel Dusk? Dragon Quest Monsters? NOLF?

FFCC ate a lot of shit because of the GBA thing but it's one of my favorite co-op games ever.

Unreal Tournament is the only game that i am still playing until this day. That game really pushes the limits of a player playing a FPS game.

Besides UT, i would say Mana Khemia. Its a PS2 game but whatever, i still love this game.

Puzzle Fighter isn't that great, anyway. I'd rather play a game like Tetris Attack--which, in any case, has shapes as well as colors. (I don't know how visually distinct they are if you can only see the shapes, though.)

I've been playing Kuru Kuru Twinkle ~Onegai Ohoshi-sama~. It's a lot like Tetris Attack, except you have a two-by-two cursor, and you can swap either horizontally or vertically. You also gain stars which you can use for "magic" (abilities like stopping time for five seconds), and you can line up six grey blocks horizontally to clear everything below them. You can also hold the trigger buttons and press left/right to shake the screen (so blocks fall off of high towers into lower spots). It's pretty neat :-)

(It's probably a "game no one else loves but you", hehe.)

Actually, I like a lot of games, so naturally a few of them end up falling into this category. Some of them were relatively popular at one time or another, but they all seem to get me blank looks these days. Here are some that come to mind:

  • Kuru Kuru Twinkle ~Onegai Ohoshisama~, which I described above. Decent but not amazing music, BTW.
  • Fury of the Furries - A great platformer out of France in the early 90s. It got turned into Pac-in-Time, which IMO was not as good, at least on the SNES. The DOS version has some of the best game music out there, and you can listen to it or get it from the composer at his bandcamp site. Check out the Amiga version, too.
  • Wagan Paradise - Most of the Wagan games are kind of tedious and don't have really great music, but this one is the opposite--it's huge and varied, never gets dull, and has AMAZING tunes. Definitely recommended if you can read beginner-level Japanese (which is needed for the boss battles).
  • Wario's Woods - Never popular, maybe because the NES was already on the way out when it came out. Actually, it was the last officially licensed NES game! There was a SNES version which is great, but it's quite complicated to learn, and I think that turns people off of it. Desyncs in ZSNES netplay but it's fun to play 2P in person.
  • Summon Night Swordcraft Story - There are three of these games, and they're all great and have great music. (My favorite music is in the first game, which uses the GB sound chip in combination with the GBA sound chip. I love games that do that.) The first two are available in English, so you should all go play them.
  • Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders - The second SCUMM game, but unlike Maniac Mansion, it's not really appreciated or remembered. It came with such cool things in the box. I always think of it when a new physical game box (when they exist at all) comes with a card or nothing at all...
  • Wizball - A classic in its era, but unknown today, and confusing to new players. It has some of the best game music. Once you get over the initial curve it's not way too hard, and it has a fun gradius-inspired shmup bonus level.
  • Lode Runner's Rescue - An isometric spinoff of the popular Lode Runner series which was widely panned, influenced by Alice in Wonderland. Kind of like Crystal Castles.
  • Goemon 64 (Ganbare Goemon: Neo Momoyama Bakufu no Odori) - Ocarina of Time outsold this game a hundred to one, but I like Goemon better. It's a masterpiece of funny songery :-)
  • Super Princess Peach - great graphics, music, and boss design. The emotion thing irritated me so I ended up not playing it for the first three years I owned it, but then I went back and decided it was an awesome game. It's super easy, but if you don't buy any upgrades, it's actually pretty fun.
  • Sword of Mana (it has a funny Japanese title: 新約聖剣伝説) - It's the GBA remake of Final Fantasy Adventure, and I thought it was pretty amazing. I was really psyched when it came out and played through both quests several times :-) I was surprised to find out later that most people didn't think it was that great. The music is pretty good, though the original is still better, and it's a quarter-step flat, which is grating.
  • Drill Dozer - A big ol' cartridge that hangs out of your GBA (and even further out of a DS), because it vibrates! This is one of my favorite side scrolling platformers of the last ten years. I don't know why it wasn't more popular, given that it's from the people who made Pokemon, of all things. Go Ichinose even worked on the soundtrack!
  • Aerobiz - Basically you're playing a spreadsheet instead of a game. It doesn't sound like it'd be fun, but it is, at least if you've got multiple players.
  • Coryoon, Child of Dragon - One of my favorite shooters, and definitely my favorite Cute 'Em Up. It's ridiculously easy and you get zillions of lives, but it somehow never feels too easy. Great music, definitely check it out.
  • Dizzy Egg - This was popular in some places but never really in the US. I had it anyway when I was little and I loved it. It was a whole series of side-scrolling adventure-puzzle games, some of which were better than others. My favorite is Prince of the Yolkfolk, and I also like Magic Land Dizzy. A bunch of people over at yolkfolk.com make fan Dizzy games and some of them are pretty great, and I think Codemasters might be releasing new Dizzy games soon or something.
  • Zeliard - Originally a PC88 game, I ended up getting the DOS version when I was little. It's a pretty fun side-scrolling action RPG, kind of like Ys 3. It got pretty tricky toward the end, though, especially with those stupid invisible currents in the fire level. Also, like most RPGs of the era, it was a bit grindy. Still, great game, great music.

Hmm... Looks like my list is already too long, so I'll stop there. Sorry about that :-)

    Plane's list made me remember another one: Boktai. You had to actually go outside to play it which was a first for me (not sure if other video games have ever done that). It was kind of a silly gimmick but the game itself was really good.

    Also Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel for GBC and 007 for the original GB were really good. the MGS game basically plays like the older Metal Gear games and 007 plays like a clone of Link's Awakening.

    The mention of both Vigilante 8 and Wario's Woods in this thread make me extremely happy. My mother still plays Wario's Woods to this day, and I would kill for a new V8 game. Give me V8 over Twisted Metal any day.

    I think I'll go ahead and throw in some love for Winback: Covert Operations. It's pretty much the first game to have a cover system and I still play it every now and then. Had a sequel, but it flopped in pretty much every way imaginable so I hear, though I haven't played it.

    Outlaws is another great game, easy to play though relatively unknown from my experience.

    I don't play too many obscure games, maybe there were a few on NES that I'm forgetting.

    Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy and Second Sight were cool games with psychic powers on ps2. They came out around the same time and neither one did well with sales or made sequels. There need to be more games based around psychic powers. I liked Psi-Ops more though, it had better gameplay, especially the telekinesis and boss fights and a good song by the band Cold 'With my Mind' Second Sight had a better story and a cool ending twist but the healing power made it too easy.

    Way of the Samurai is another ps2 game that based all around realistic sword fighting. There aren't many games focused entirely on swords. Only played the first two of four games and the first game has great music by Noriyuki Asakura who did Rurouni Kenshin.

    But since we're now talking about games everyone loves except you: I hate Bioshock! I've tried to play through the first one three times, every time I dropped it somewhere in the middle because it bored me to death. I really can't see what's so special about these games to deserve a metacritic of 96 and being toplisted as most influential shooter of the century etc.

    Raw Danger

    N0Stars

    Joined: May 22 2011

    One of the greatest B-games in the PS2 library, Raw Danger is an amazing experience. Technically, most of what it has to offer is pretty average: the survival gameplay, graphics, and sound quality range from good to barely passable. When it came out, most reviewers took the game at face value and panned it for its many foibles. However, if you can look past the games weaknesses, the off-the-wall design choices and outrageous scenarios makes playing the game bizarrely entertaining. The dialogue options are probably its biggest asset. It has the typical good vs. evil options, but it usually has one or two extra choices that range from mildly creepy to hilariously psychotic. Nearly every other aspect of the game is just as quirky. I won't go into too much detail, but I will mention a couple of highlights:

    -Everyone is blond; to 'westernize' the game, the developers swapped the black hair texture for a yellow-blond one
    -The game encourages avant-garde fashion by forcing the player to constantly swap out clothing items to avoid hypothermia
    - You get to play as an unhinged waiter, an escaped convict, a taxi driver that SHOULD NOT have a license, and a schoolgirl out for revenge

    By the time you listen to the 867th iteration of the first ten seconds of 'Jingle Bells' from Raw Danger's unorthodox soundtrack, I think you'll fall in love with the game too.
