Recommend Underrated/Undiscovered Games Topic
« on: February 03, 2016, 01:44:57 AM »

NOT FOR RECOMMENDING WELL-KNOWN OR POPULAR GAMES/FRANCHISES We already have a general recommendation topic for that.

As the title suggests, use this topic to recommend games that have generally gone unnoticed, or under the radar. (pls no Prof. Layton or Ace Attorney, (etc.) we all know those games exist! c: )

For example, Kero Blaster, by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya has gone seemingly unnoticed by the gaming community. Made by the same mastermind behind Cave Story, this gem was simultaneously released for iOS and PC back in 2014. Gamers who have played it often make the comparison that, if Cave Story was Pixel's take on Metroid-style gameplay, then Kero Blaster was his take on Contra, and this is a wonderful thing. The game sports the same 2D, pixelated charm of Cave Story, and offers plenty in the department of replayability. The music is also phenomenal, but that should come to little surprise, given Pixel's reputation for creating superb chirp-tune, NES-style sound tracks. Unfortunately, time and time again, I find myself in the same conversation when this topic comes up:

Me: "So, have you ever played Cave Story?"
Person: Either "Yeah! Loved it!" or "No, but everyone says it's soooo good!/I want to!"
Me: "Have you heard of Kero Blaster?"
Person: "No, what's that?"

Then again, Cave Story was finished in 2004 and didn't really become a phenomenon until about 2010, so perhaps Kero Blaster will see it's time in the spot-light soon enough.

I really like VVVVVV - the music is good but oh god, it is unforgiving lest you fuck up.

Licensed games about hamsters. Gonna suck, right? Well except for the part where Miyamoto and Iwata are in the credits as producers. And they're actually REALLY GOOD adventure games, likely in part because of that staff. Kids games to be sure, but GOOD ONES

Axiom Verge is a game I haven't heard too many people talk about. I haven't played it, but it sounds like it might be pretty interesting.

VVVVVV is great. The soundtrack is even greater.

I did play the Ham-Ham Games when I was little. Pretty fun, actually...

Adventure of Lolo is the bomb as well as one of the less popular NES games

Since Iwata became the president of Nintendo in 2002, his name is usually listed in the credits as "Executive Producer" simply by being the CEO. But out of curiosity I looked the games up, and was to find Shiggy's name as a producer. Huh.

Also: Picross 3D for NDS. It's essentially picross, but you have to chip away blocks on a cube instead of filling in dots on a grid. I've been replaying it recently and would totally reccomend it.
