    Post a game for any console you would consider underrated,burried or forgoten by the general gaming public
    Screenshots if you like.
    This thread will be for anyone looking to find a good game to play or to tell others about an odd or forgoten gem that you think may interest people in your opinion ill get the format going so just copy me.

    Original Xbox:
    Sudeki: an action rpg where you play as 4 characters jumping between parallel worlds. Some characters are 1st person shooter combat and some are 3rd person combat. Very good story and a truly Underrated classic on the pc and original xbox.

    Faxanadu on Famicom/NES.
    it's a side-scrolling Metroidvania that's just as cryptic and back-tracky as Castlevania2. You can find updated romhacks that do a better job of translating the game but the original can't be that bad if 5 year old me could finish it. it has a great chiptune soundtrack and solid gameplay. it's one of those games i replay at least once every couple of years and never gets old. Really disappointed there wasn't a sequel; and no, the other Xanadu games DO NOT COUNT.

    Re volt is one of my favorite racing games from N64 times and poeple seem to fail to capture is flare when they make their own RC racing game
    the game is not dead oddly enough it has a small mod base on the internet and a small dev team even put the game on the Iphone.

    Star control 2 is forgotten (If you are looking to play it, download UrQuan masters, it's free and it has all of the things the 3do version added) it is such a good game, the aliens are interesting and the gameplay is fun, it's just mostly forgotten. This game will blow your mind because of the detail and polish and character, and this game is somehow from the 90's, seriously, give it a shot, especially that it's free now.

    i made SO many mods and skins for that game. Easiest pc game in history to modify. Anyone with even the most basic of MSPaint skills could make custom cars and paint jobs. i think i must have made AT LEAST 5 or 6 skins for each car. One for every videogame character or cartoon show i could think of.

    Also, the soundtrack screams of 90s EDM. Good stuff!

    Not sure if you've played a game called Urban Chaos: Riot Response on the PS2. You play as a sort of SWAT team operative, fighting a gang that commits acts of domestic terrorism in your city. This game is so much fun, and the story isn't too bad either. I hate that this never continued on and made more games, it's interesting that the enemies are domestic terrorists instead of Russians, Middle Eastern, Nazis, etc. and it has some interesting mechanics, like how you can choose whether to incapacitate enemies or kill them, which unlocks other levels that help you earn special weapon upgrades that can aid you as the game increases in difficulty.

    I really wish this game would get some sort of digital re-release, as it's hard to find a working copy anymore. But I don't think it's popular enough to warrant one.

    Another one I just remembered going through my old PS2 games is Stuntman Ignition. I think this was the first game I went out of my way to complete 100%. This is another one that should have gotten a sequel. The game is just as the title says, you're a stuntman shooting action scenes for different movies, doing your best to string as many stunts together as you can, you even get to watch a trailer for the movie you shot the stunts for at the end of each one.
