NYR - New York Race

fun little racing game based on The Fifth Element.

XGIII - Extreme G Racing

a pretty solid racing game. it's pretty hard at times.


not really obscure, but a must-play snowboarding classic.

Aggressive Inline

I don't really need to explain this one.


classic scrolling shooter for the ps1, can recommend if you like the genre.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

I know this game isn't really obscure anymore, especially because of the anomaly mod, but it still is a cult classic. buy the original game if you want to experience the true stalker experience.

Mother Russia Bleeds

an awesome beat em up, it's pretty fun.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure

absolute gem that doesn't get the recognition it deserves, it managed to change my views on graffiti while being pretty fun.

From Earth

now this one is absolutely obscure and, like the image says, it is a mod for half-life 2.

It was never finished, the developer abandoned the project when he realized the mod was too big and ambitious for him.

The game is mostly about communication and language. trying to translate an alien language to english so you can communicate with the planet's inhabitants. pretty challenging and you need a lot of patience.

The Deed

A game about getting away with murder.

It's short but pretty fun and there are a lot ways to get away with murder (or not!). It has a less known sequel called The Deed 2.


a game for 4th dimensional beings.

absurdly fun if you're into puzzle solving.

Anyways those are some games I consider to be obscure, underappreciated or cult classics. There are a lot lot more I haven't mentioned, and I won't because I'm tired.

the desolate hope by scott cawthon. imagine exploring a world with a bunch of cool robots designs as a coffee machine. it's a bit complicated but after knowing what to do it's pretty fun, or so i've heard.

it's free on steam btw

oh also A Koopa's Revenge. it's just a really good flash platformer you can probably find on any website

The Little Tail Bronx series has been getting more popular thanks to Fuga, but Tail Concerto and Solatorobo are still very underappreciated games that I wish had more attention.

Also play Re-Volt, great arcadey racing game.
