    Games the world forgot about

    In this topic, list games that are not necessarily good or bad but that for some reason completely fell off the radar, never to be mentioned again. Here's some I just thought of:

    Sin Episodes: Emergence
    Dark Void
    Front Mission Evolved

    Haha that game, it was something special but maybe a bit too special.

    Also Plain Sight, I liked that game but there was never anyone online.

    I used to play that on and off. Now, pretty much any time of day, all of the 20-ish dedicated servers left are completely empty. :/

    Oh, and it was on Destructoid a while back, but one that pretty much no one knew and everyone that did know forgot about was the IGF Seamus McNally winner 2002, Bad Milk.

    EDIT: Also, Dino D-Day (STILL pretty empty even though it's in the Groupees bundle), Transarctica, Voxatron, Cortex Command, and probably many more I could name but can't think of at the moment.

    EDIT2: Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble, Wizorb, any of the Tale of Tales offerings, Star Fox: Adventures.

    Woah, someone else that actually knows what that is? Awesome!

    Oh, Jet Force Gemini is one of my all-time favorites, but even among N64-owning friends, I have issues finding anyone that knows what it is. Seriously, the second half of the game is a bit irritating (I never did collect all those ship parts), but the first half is some of the greatest fun I've ever had with a game. The praying mantis boss forever holds a place in my mind as one of the most well-balanced boss fights I've ever played, and it was a great feeling when I finally killed that bastard.

    This game was amazing, I still have my old N64 and the game. I think I will have to rip a ROM and play it on my PC with an emulator again. The N64 had such a horrible joystick.

    Been in the N64 mood and in the process of beating Ocarina of Time on the emulator right now, but you reminded me of that game. Also, you could play as a cute dog with huge guns on its back, that right there makes it amazing. Seriously people look this game up.

    EDIT: Also, jetpacks, what else you want.

    Far from flawless, but so memorable. I'd play it again if I had more free time.

    Frontlines: Fuel of War. I was so excited for that game, got into the closed beta, rocked it with a bunch of friends from another gaming community, got awesome at it... then it came out and tanked harder than I've ever seen before. I didn't have enough money to buy it at the time, and once I did none of my friends were playing it (like two weeks after release) so I didn't buy it.

    The first dune was amazing!! it's easily one of my favorite games :)

    Anyone knows if there's a similar game out there?


    just to be sure i'm talking about this.
    and an added bonus for whoever liked the game, or at least the music an excellent remix

    Absolutely love the Dune universe, that remix brought back some fond memories, thank you!

    I don't understand why their isn't a modern sequel to the Dune games. Although being the first RTS, the concept is still original. I've never donated to a KickStarter project, but I would be all over a Dune remake/sequel.
