Sid Meier's Antietam would be nice to see as well.
Would be even better if someone made an upgraded version with more features and tactical depth.
Not that obscure but I'd like to see Battlezone and BZ2 available on GOG.
I would be interesting in playing a bit Merchant Prince.
It was a old turn-based strategy game, which was released at the time of Civilization II I think (more or less). Its was quite similar to Civilization I, but with an original concept : you were not a country or kingdom, but a faction of venitian merchants. Your goal consisted in making money (by trade or pillage) and ruling the city of Venise (you could bribe the senators or the pope), whereas your concurrents were other venitian merchants.
I've played it only a few hours, but this game has always interested me (ideally in a more modern version, at least for the controls)
Thought of another one that I had a hard time finding a while back: The Dark Eye.
Horror-adventure with straight translation of Edgar Allen Poe stories, clay mannequins and William S. Burroughs providing voice work. Of note he narrated, not without some struggle, Annabel Lee. I should really grab an ebay copy sometime. The cubist Masque of Red Death segment looks particularly sumptuous:
Got nothing new to add but would like to make a large noise of agreement to:
No One Lives Forever 1 and 2
and Severance. Warm fuzzy memories.
Not obscure in the slightest, but old:
Diablo 1. I think it was and is the best in the series, but the thing can't be found from DD services, physical copy costs around 20 pounds and good luck trying to get it to run on Windows 7.
Dark Earth from 1997.
http://blog.macuyiko.com/p/palettestealersuspender.html. It fixes DirectDraw games, like AOE2 and Diablo is listed there.
Earthbound! I think it might be available on the Nintendo marketplace now, but I'd much rather have that shit on XBL!
Oh I have to agree about Gex but enter the Gecko in 2D, played it on the 3do quite alot. Very nice and different graphic style.
Is "Lord of the Rings The Battle for Middle-earth 1 & 2" available digitally?
Yeah, I guess Heretic II is obscure enough to qualify in this thread. Me too, I would love to see this game back to life. I got my copy in 1999 and it was just a few years ago that I stopped playing it after my old P4 PC died on me. I guess I find time to play with it next week and relive those old but familiar feelings... I was 14 when I first played it.
I'd like to play Terra Nova:Strike Force Centauri again. It'd probably shatter my thick, short sighted rose tinted glasses trying, but I have fond memories of it. A looking Glass classic. Seeing as how it was obscure back when it was released, I don't suppose there's much chance of it returning (let alone who actually owns the rights to it now).
its not obscure, but why isnt homeworld available anywhere?
