* ''PhantasyStar'': It had a fully fleshed-out plot years before ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Famicom}} came out, it was one of the first [=RPGs=] to feature a female protagonist, it took place in a science-fiction setting (which is rare for [=RPGs=], even today) ''and'' it came to the United States a full year before ''[[DragonQuest Dragon Warrior]]''. The rest of the series also deserves mention, as they are all great [=RPGs=], comparable to the ''Final Fantasies'' of the era.

** This isn't surprising, however. The other games in the trilogy had mixed reaction, its predecessor ''The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning'' for the GBA was received badly, and (according to {{The Other Wiki}}) this was the last GBA game released in Europe.

* {{VideoGame/Malicious}} is a gorgeous-looking action game for the PS3 with an UpdatedRerelease on the PlayStationVita. Your goal is to [[BossGame defeat five bosses]] to gain enough power to face the titular Malicious. You'll face off against these foes with a shapeshifting ScarfOfAsskicking called the Mantle of Cinders that gains new forms and abilities as you defeat more bosses. Sadly, it's practically unheard of.

* ''VideoGame/ToySoldiers'' by Signal Studios. Despite being a wonderful take on the TowerDefense genre ''and'' the best selling XboxLiveArcade game of 2010, I haven't seen it on any best games list, and it didn't even have a page on ThisVeryWiki until yesterday, when I made it.

* Creator/FromSoftware’s ''VideoGame/OtogiMythOfDemons'' is one of the most unknown original {{Xbox}} games, which is a shame because it combines EverythingBreaks, SceneryPorn, SoundtrackDissonance, and a simple yet effective combat system to make one of, if not the best games, then at least one of the most interesting games aroundÖAnd then thereís the {{Sequel}}, which is so unknown that even people who have played the first one often donít know about it. ''VideoGame/Otogi2ImmortalWarriors'' was a near [[UpToEleven total improvement]] over the first game, better graphics, better music, better stages, and SIX playable characters to Otogiís one. It is easily one of the best games on the {{Xbox}}, and the fans that do know about it would probably give anything for a next-gen {{sequel}} or an HD re-release, and the original Xbox copies are not Xbox 360 compatible.

* ''VideoGame/TornadoOutbreak'', a surprisingly well-done clone of ''KatamariDamacy'' made by former Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog members that focuses on flinging things away instead of attaching them, with a nice co-op mode, an actual plot and unique powerups. See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN4kBSmhZe0 here]].

Added DiffLines:

** Not even ''The King of Fighters'' is immune to this. The ''Maximum Impact'' sub-series is often forgotten due to being a 3D take on a traditionally 2D franchise.

* ''VideoGame/LastScenario'', a game that was made in RPGMaker, yet rivals or exceeds any iteration of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' in the quality of its writing and gameplay. The plot is deliberately initially set up as a ClicheStorm, but everything is eventually subverted ''TalesSeries''-style. It has well-written CharacterDevelopment, interesting plot twists and awesome pacing and reveals. Sadly, many people are put off by the simple, mediocre art, lame beginning and stock tiles and music.

* ''SteambotChronicles'' for the [=PS2=] may not be on the same level as ''Franchise/MassEffect'' or ''Fable'', but it makes up for it's lack of diverse story branches with a great music, a simple sandbox set up, and a cast of quirky characters that seemed to have stepped right out of a Miyazaki-Ghibli feature film.

* Game Dev Tycoon. An amazing game about making games, it's a very detailed look back on how video games have evolved since the introduction of home gaming.

* Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. Yes, thanks to UnexpectedGameplayChange, it pretty much killed any chances for another game in the franchise, but as a standalone game, without the titular bear and the breegull, the vehicle building mechanic is loads of fun. Take a look around YouTube for game creations some time, and see how gamers made their favourite vehicles from other franchises.
