Escape Velocity: Nova. Not that old or obscure but needs to be available at a realistic price. $30 is not realistic!
Oni is another, I think that's old enough to qualify.
Then, of course, all the SCUMM games like Full Throttle, Sam & Max, Day of the Tentacle... At least we have The Dig and that Indiana Jones game I've never played, though.

The full version of Hardwar
I bought a copy from some digital download site for peanuts, however it has the game but not the soundtrack (which was all Warp records artists).

A few months back I would've said Bioforge, but since this suddenly appeared on GoG some time ago, I'm gonna go with Sim Ant.

Quarantine 1 and 2. Quarantine 2 was one of those games I played the demo for ages ago, then was certain, years later, I had dreamed the whole thing.

Usual preface about this probably not being obscure*, but I'm surprised Jeff Wayne's Computer Game Version of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds is so damn hard to find. I'd been led to believe it only got a sort of failed semi-release and was in a buggy unfinished state, but recent YouTube clips have made it seem a bit lovely, and I was surprised by the sheer amount of comments looking back on it with fondness, complete with casual dialogue recital of the type that only really happens when you spend a lot of time with a game.
I've managed to nab a copy of the soundtrack, which I'll admit was my main impetus for tracking the game down (one of my favourite albums, morphed into late-90s videogame music - pretty much describes how I write songs, actually), but I'd still like to play the game someday.
*I love how we're all scared of being the person who excitedly tells of a weird old obscure indie band they've discovered called 'The Beatles'

Here's one everyone forgot: Albion. The sort-of-Ultima VII-style Blue Byte RPG from '96.
Incredible art direction and worldbuilding, used both overhead and FPS view, an interesting battle mechanic, and a wild storyline. Anyone playing it today would probably think of James Cameron's Avatar first, but there's more to the plot than meets the eye... :-) If you can get it, play it! DOSBox should run it just fine.
Worth noting: Albion had a huge demo, it was the entire first chapter of the game. You can get a really good taste of the game... but I can't find it anywhere online. Some torrent site maybe?
