The Best Console Games You've Never Played.

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys. :DThis is my first post, so I'm gonna make it something a bit special. Alot of you don't really know what games to try out on emulators... so I'm going to list some of the lesser known games that I'm sure some of you will love. I stress the "Lesser known" thing here. Don't be asking me where sonic, mario or zelda are in these lists. First up, we got the Sega Megadrive/Genesis. Before I start listing, I'm going to stress upon you the importance of the greatest videogame of all time (okay... I'm biased, I know :P) which is known as Wonderboy In Monsterworld. It was one of the first games I ever got as a kid, and was definately my first rpg-type experience. I recommend all of you try it. 1- Wonderboy In Monsterworld - 2D platformer RPG. Utter Genius. 2- Beavis And Butthead - Think Lucasarts Point and Click adventure crossed with a platformer. Amazing Game.3- Dynamite Headdy - Treasure developed action platformer. Insanely difficult. 4- Captain Planet And The Planeteers - I love this game somehow. I idolise the captain.5- Chiki Chiki Boys - One of capcom's greatest creations. I compare it to wonderboy! action platformer. 6- Crusader of Centy/Soleil - Sega's first answer to zelda. It was good! really!7- Beyond Oasis - Sega's second answer to zelda. Stunning graphics. Was really expensive. 8- The Misadventures Of Flink - Great spellcasting platformer!9- The Pirates Of Dark Water - I loved this cartoon as much as captain planet. The game rules!10- Quackshot Starring Donald Duck - Just play this... amazing platformer by sega with rpgish elements. Next we have the Gameboy!1- Dragon Warrior Monsters - I never even looked at pokemon after getting this.2- Kid Dracula - Castlevania spinoff. You play as an infantile Alucard, facing off the evil Garamoth. A childhood favourite for me.3- Mario's Picross - I find it hard to find a game I can't put down now. This was one of them. 4- Hamtaro Ham Ham's Unite - developed by the same team that make the mario and luigi rpg games. Seriously embarrassing, but fantastic rpg game. 5- Pitman - Another of those unputdownable puzzlers. 6- Solomon's Club - Aaaaaand another. 7- Wario Land - What a game... wario games are better than mario games. There. I said it. 8- Tiny Toon Adventures - Bab's Big Break - Superb Platformer! :P graphics were insane at the time :P9 - Micro Machines - There were two consoles micro machines is any good for. The gameboy and psx. Little known fact that :P10 - uhhh... can't think of a tenth :P The Playstation!1- Casper - The movie game... yes... I know hundreds of people who secretly know this is their most treasured ps1 title. Play it... PLAAAAAY ITTT2- Overboard- Oh god... I bought this after playing the demo a bazillion times. You play as a little ship and you shoot things :P 3- Devil Dice - Oh wow... this too... it's the best puzzle game on the psx. 4- Kula World - Ohhh... maybe this is the best puzzle game though :P Tough decisions...5- Disney's Hercules - 2 and a half D platformer. Utterly brilliant. 6- Skull Monkeys - This game was hilarious. Utterly random platform fun.7- Gex 3D Enter The Gecko - I thought this was the best 3d platformer ever... Until I bought an N64 :P8- Medievil 2 - The sequel nobody knew existed. What a game. Loved sony for this.9- Micro Machines V3 - Oh... this still tops mario kart for me :P10 - Oh god... I almost forgot ALUNDRA :| this beat LTTP for me! It was AWESOME. I'll be back later with my n64, dreamcast and gba list. I'm not a huge snes or nes fan sorry. So no lists for those.

It's coming out on psp later this year apparently. I loved it to bits... aaaaanyway. Onto part 2 :P


1 - Rocket, Robot on wheels. - One of the few non rareware platformers that N64 owners took notice of. Damn... we were spoiled for them with that console.
2 - Rakuga Kids - I got this for ÂŁ1 a few years ago, and sold it on ebay for about ÂŁ30. It's a crayon-stylised beat em up. Something you'll remember for years.
3 - Custom Robo - I remember this being billed as pokemon for the n64. It was hardly anything like it, but it was an amazing game nonetheless. Bit hard to understand the Japanese tho :P
4 - Sin and Punishment - This came out in Japan only near the death of the n64. Amazing graphics... fantastic fast-paced shooting action and a multiplayer mode that killed almost anything it could be compared with.
5 - Mischief Makers - A fantastic 2D treasure-developed platformer.
6 - Earthworm Jim 3D - I enjoyed this right :P It was immensely difficult, but it was another great platformer.
7 - Space Station Silicon Valley - Excellent 3D platformer where you got by defeating animals and then possessing them. There was a bug in the game where you couldn't grab a certain item, so you could never finish it.
8 - Nuclear Strike 64 - I loved the entire strike series. Not many know it came out on N64.
9 - Mario Tennis - Nobody bought this :| It is THE BEST TENNIS GAME EVER!
10 - Looney Tunes - Duck Dodgers 64 - Excellent, funny 3D platformer.


1 - Floigan Bros - Fantastic adventure. There was originally gonna be tons of sequels... shame piracy killed the dc :P
2 - Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 - The definitive extreme sports title. Everything about the DC version took the piss out of the playstation counterpart.
3 - Dave Mirra's Freestyle BMX - Same Again here :P
4 - Rent A Hero No1 - Jap only game, but with a walkthrough, you can witness true sega genius. Something they lost a LOOOOONG time ago.
5- Ecco The Dolphin - I never "got" the ecco series until I played this. Beautiful beautiful game.
6 - Fur Fighters - This was the first dreamcast game I ever played :P the weird visuals and humour had me hooked.
7 - MDK2 - Shiny need to make more games. Seriously.
8 - Half Life - This was never released... but the scene got their hands on it :P My PC at the time wasn't powerful enough to play it properly... looked and played great.
9 - Armada - An RPG Shmup. So good it hurts...
10 - Evil Twin - Cypriens Chronicles - This was the last PAL game released for the dreamcast. Nobody cared when it came. Their loss. It rocked.


1 - Lunar legends - This is one of the best rpg's ever made. Play it now.
2 - Hamtaro- Ham Ham Heartbreak - Another fun little RPG! :P I was hooked!
3 - Hamtaro Rainbow Rescue - I kinda preferred the previous two, but this was great all the same.
4 - Super Street Fighter 2x revival - This is by far the best version of street fighter 2 that has ever been released. No question.
5 - Magical Vacation - Another Jap game completed with a walkthrough. Fantastic. Glad the DS is getting a sequel.

7 - MDK2 - Shiny need to make more games. Seriously.

OH MY GOSH yes. I played MDK 1 for Mac- amazing game. When it hit Dreamcast, I hit GameStop. This game was one of my favorites out of all the 90's games I ever played. Seriously, it's great.

It's like Batman, without any special powers, in a tight unitard.
Finally someone gives this game props.
