* ''ProjectGothamRacing'' is a very underrated racing game series developed exclusively for Xbox and Xbox 360. It has everything for being one of the foremost racing games, but their developer, BizarreCreations, has been closed, and the series has languished in the shadow. The last game of the series exited in 2007, so no one really cares about this series anymore, but it's definitely worth a shot. It heavily emphasizes in [[DrivesLikeCrazy stunt driving]], which earn you Kudos, basically the EXP system of the game. The more Kudos you gain, the wider the selection of championships is given to you. The game modes range from the self-explanatory race against other rivals, to the last-man-standing race, and even style challenges emphasizing stunts. You race in various [[BoomTown huge cities]] around the world such as London, New York, Tokyo and Las Vegas, and the car roster is [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters pretty darn big, with many legendary vehicles such as Ferrari and Lamborghini]], and even RareVehicles such as the Caparo T1 (a road-legal UsefulNotes/FormulaOne car) and the Callaway Sledgehammer Twin Turbo (a souped-up Corvette).

* ''VideoGame/SonicPinballParty'' is a must-have if you have a Game Boy Advance/Nintendo DS and any nostalgia for Sonic Team's Saturn and Dreamcast games, with tables based on ''NiGHTS'' and ''SambaDeAmigo'' featuring tracks from ''BurningRangers'', ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'' and ''ChuChuRocket''.

* ''VideoGame/RocketJockey'' (not to be mistaken for the same-titled {{Action 52}} game) is a 1996 PC game about rocket bikes. With [[GrapplingHookPistol grappling cables.]] That can join anything together, if needed. Using these vehicles, you can compete in one of three events: the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin self-explanatory]] Rocket Race, slinging balls/pucks into any goal in sight in Rocket Ball, and a Rocket War, which involves inflicting as much VideogameCrueltyPotential as possible on every other person in sight using the grappling cables and even the occasional bomb! All this to the tune of a surf guitar soundtrack courtesy of Dick Dale. SoCoolItsAwesome, and yet practically no one has heard of it... [[CultClassic but the ones who do will never forget it.]]

* The entire ''VideoGame/TheTaleOfAlltynex'' trilogy is very fit for this list especially since of those few who have played them consider them (especially ''VideoGame/{{Kamui}}'') to be the best games of the genre the PC has to offer. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGDoDX-__Rw Let this teaser convince you]].

** And now it's available internationally, for digital purchase and download. Unfortunately, its Steam release is stuck in Greenlight, and the lack of awareness of non-Steam digital purchase sites means it isn't much more popular than it was before.

offer. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGDoDX-__Rw Let this teaser convince you]].
** And now it's available internationally, for digital purchase and download. Unfortunately, its Steam release is stuck in Greenlight, It's still a bit under the radar and the lack of awareness of non-Steam digital purchase sites means it isn't much more only searched for a niche public, but it's reasonably popular than it was before.even so.

* The Japanese Indie scene has been struggling in obscurity over the past several years due to Steam's regional limitations, the non-ubiquity of digital downloads, and the corporate business culture of Japan that makes independent games and projects harder to find. But thanks to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zawk-CtKvl4 this video]], they are finally starting to get a little bit of attention. Seriously, ''Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION'', ''Revolver 360 RE:ACTOR'', ''Fortune Summoners'', ''GIGANTIC ARMY'', and ''Astebreed'' might all look like crazy hard, serious Bullet-hell arcade shooters, but they are so easy to pick up and get into, with a strong emphasis on just having fun. And if you don't feel like laying cash down on, they even have free demos for download.

* ''Stacking'' is a simple little game where you play as a Russian egg doll, using your ability to jump in and out of other egg dolls the next size up to solve puzzles in order to save your family. It may be simple, and it will only last you around 2-3 hours, but the low price is worth it.

* Much like Creator/HudsonSoft's ''VideoGame/BloodyRoar'', Creator/{{Taito}}'s ''VideoGame/PsychicForce'' is also a severely underrated fighting game series despite its CultClassic status and that it has a unique and effective fighting engine system combined with a surprisingly intricate storyline which, just like ''Bloody Roar'', pretty much [[FollowTheLeader follows]] ''ComicBook/XMen'''s own strong narrative (Psychiccers are shunned by the normal human population and that some of them only seek to make peace and help unite humans and Psychiccers for a bright and hopeful future while others are determined to start a war against the humans for total Psychiccer supremacy).
