    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.

    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.

    This seems to happen quite a bit with game series where the second installment is a lot more beloved than the first. Does anyone still talk about the original Jagged Alliance? Or Street Fighter?

    Apart from that, looking at my list of games on Steam made me realize that I've never heard anyone talk about Hydrophobia: Prophecy and to be quite honest, I don't even remember what it was about.

    It got talked about for all the wrong reasons. Its reception was... not exactly poor, but tepid to say the least. The developers were very unhappy about this and responded to the criticisms with a statement that essentially boiled down to "You're playing it wrong!"

    I did buy it when it was cheap and my reaction to it was tepid, too, so I guess I was playing it wrong.

    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.

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

    Rollcage (amazing games, people who never played it thought it was a wipeout clone, it was nothing like wipeout exept for the color scheme and that it's in the future).

    It was worse than that - they completely revamped it and made it, if anything, worse.

    It's problems were many and varied - a demo which talked about water physics and "innovative" combat but didn't demonstrate it - a game packed with some of the least imaginative puzzles ever made and an overall feeling of it being a tech demo - and not even a very good one.

    Second Sight.
    Free Radical did something other than TimeSplitters, but apparently the world forgot.
