Have there ever been any games that you loved, and wanted other people to enjoy it with you, but you couldn’t find anyone that was interested?
For me, that game would be Forsaken, which I had on N64. If you’ve never played it, it was similar to Descent…you started the game to the narration of Jon St. John, aka Duke Nukem’s voice, and you fly through tight tunnels & mazes on a hoverbike twisting & turning in all directions …basically a free-floating arena shooter. I really enjoyed it a lot, but half of the game was 4-player split screen, and at the time anyone I had to play N64 with was either interested in the WCW wrestling games on the system or Goldeneye, so I was always stuck playing single player…which was fun, but still…
I loved playing Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and bolts. I loved being able to make so many other unique vehicles and there are a lot of fun challenges. But so many fans would want to burn this game to the ground. It may not be the Banjo-Threeie fans wanted, but it’s a fine game on it’s own merits.
I love this game with a passion, but seeing most people push it aside cuz it’s similar to Smash hurts… Then they say they want a ring out mechanic and I’m like "Well which is it; like smash or not like it?
also it introduced me to Madeon which is a 10/10 recommendation
Eh, I’ll count it. I don’t recall ever playing a Dreamcast game I didn’t like. Sadly, I never owned one, but my college roommate did, so I got to play them quite a bit. Oddly I probably gave the most Dreamcast time to Seaman.
…then again I might have just taken you for a ride…dada dada, dada dada, dada da.
I’m tempted to put games that I think are underrated, but as far as games that I enjoyed that I couldn’t get anyone else in to, I’d say:
Eternal Champions (Genesis)
I loved those games back in the day, but while a lot of my friends enjoyed Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, I couldn’t get any of them to play either of these two games for more than five minutes.
Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective (Sega CD)
I actually convinced a friend that had a Sega CD to buy this game and we played it for a while, but he hated it. I felt bad that I kinda steered him wrong, but I personally enjoyed it lol.
A few others I’ll list without explanation since I don’t want to ramble on too long here:
Bad Dudes (NES)
Pit Fighter (Arcade)
Sewer Shark (Sega CD)
Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi (PSone)
Soviet Strike (PSone)
Panzer Dragoon, and PD: Zwei 2 (Saturn)
Battle Arena Toshinden Remix (Saturn)
Mace: The Dark Age (N64)
Grandia 2 (Dreamcast)
Virtua Fighter 3 TB (Dreamcast)
Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram (Dreamcast)
World Series Baseball 2K2 (Dreamcast)
Alien Front Online (Dreamcast)
Pitfall: The Lost Expidition (PS2)
The Red Star (PS2)
Hunter: The Reckoning (Xbox)
Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge (Xbox)

Lost Odyssey (Xbox 360)
Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing: Transformed (Xbox 360)
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator (PS3)
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (Xbox One)
Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One)
Those are the ones that immediately spring to mind. I’m sure that there are a lot more on each of those systems as well as more recent stuff as well.
