Croc: Legend of the Gobbos. I’m not even gonna say it’s a good game, but I loved it and for whatever reason, it stuck with me to this very day! I love the character Croc and I still think about those fuzzy little orange bits and hope they’re all ok <3 (I should get out more…)

For me:

Fatal Frame 4. The fact it was foolishly only released in Japan contributes a lot to this, but I really feel it's one of the finest horror games I have ever played, with a powerful atmosphere, genuine scariness, and a poignant undercurrent of melancholy. One of my favourite games on Wii.

The Last Story. Localization also played a role in this one not getting the exposure it deserved, but it's also a Wii classic that seems largely forgotten. It has one of my favourite battle systems in a JPRG, charming characters, a wonderful score, and a refreshing lack of cringe.

Sin and Punishment: Star Successor. A fantastic rollercoaster ride of slick arcade goodness, bursting at the seams with energy and dynamism and a showcase for how amazing pointer aiming can be when done right.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. I really enjoyed this one. It had really effective atmosphere and storytelling, clever and enjoyable use of the Wiimote, some of the best graphics on Wii, and it was genuinely scary. At a time when it was rare for third party games on Wii to actually try, this one felt like it had real effort behind it.

Starfox 1993. Almost always overlooked in favour of its more lavish N64 successor, the SNES original is still an excellent space epic with awesome bosses, fantastic music, and a very well balanced level of challenge. It's also a watershed technological milestone in the home console space that I feel actually holds up better than the 3D of the N64 era thanks to its simple flat shaded polygons mixed with appealing 16-bit sprite work.

Great selection altogheter, I would add Red Steel 2 to those wii games, the game came out at the time when interest in wii was starting to die,  like lots of other non-nintendo franchises it was overlooked despite the effort developers made to have one if not the best motion plus controlled game on the wii, rectifying lots of problems they had with the first one, while not having a great storyline or far deeper characters, it was a great experience with the controls and graphics that were very stylish for the wii(i also liked the samurai/gunsliger mashup, and i guess  the first game could also have a rework to make it work better).

Both of these for me too!

Also Dead Space Extraction on Wii for living up to its IP even in an on-rails format thanks to its potent atmosphere and satisfying combat, and Pop'n Twinbee on SNES for being one of the most stylish and accessible shumps of that era.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

while I agree with many of the great  games on your list Half- Life isn't a forgotten game



Research shows Video games  help make you smarter, so why am I an idiot

Rudra no Hihou (SNES)
Bahamut Lagoon (SNES)

If you never played those games, do yourself a favor and get a SNES emulator and the translated games. Both are masterpieces.



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

Well. Valve has certainly forgotten it... Half Life 2 came out 18 years ago.
A baby would have grown up and be legally allowed to smoke, drink, gamble, go to war, be a license driver and more in that amount of time.

Even though breath of Fire series got ported to Switch except 3 , I've yurn for a new game from Square ? only thing that criminal is the creator of both Breath of Fire and Chronotrigger are probably not at Square Enix , Sakaguchi really made a beautiful game series in Final Fantasy and Xbox Lost Odyssey.

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Edited the above post I meant breath of fire series as one of my favorites in SNES era , but I'd always put Chrono trigger above Fire emblem and other series like secret of mana etc.

What's meant by forgotten game? Almost all of these games I've seen featured in youtube videos or in forums, within the last 2-3 months. Some of these (like Skies of Arcadia) mentioned in these very forums in the past few days. But yeah, if it's meant games that haven't seen a release in a while, Skies would qualify.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

@Jumpin I'm guessing games noone remembers but alot of places do remember these everybody keeps bringing them up in youtubes and forums that's why I stopped from commenting Skies of Arcadia and such , the average Sega fan knows about Dragon Force series by Sega , no not Sonic Fans even though they are apart of Sega fandom, but the dragon force and legend of oasis/beyond oasis drum been tapped into so many times going to Segabits.com and Sega forever twitter the average fan will keep up to date and so mom and pop shops in california know what a dragon force game is . especially Skies of Arcadia sticking out.

Here's one of many average Sega fans will never know many JRPG games and the many games I keep my mouth shush Sega makes like JRPG linker Liver or going beyond the realm 0.01% of Sega hardcore fandom don't know what a Girl's Garden a game Sega made on the SG-1000 , Noone knows what a G storm is by Sega until I brought it up in a thread about arcade racing games but still people will forget what a Storm G is? I'm that deep I'm in the 0.000001% who knows the Sega catelog.
