Top Ten Greatest Lesser Known Video Games

There are good games, and there are obscure good games. Check out my list of the top 10 best obscure video games.

The Top TenXW

1Shadow of the Colossus

This game defies genre and is downright beautiful. Sporting great graphics for a ps2 game, The colossi fights, riding in the open plains, the satisfaction of defeating Malus, and the non-repetitive gameplay make this a true gem in the ps2 library - Garfieldtop10s

2Sonic Heroes

This is the best sonic gams ever. It feels like it needs More love - Chaotixhero

(this is only above adventure 2 because it gets less love) heroes is a highly underrated game where you play as sonic tails and knuckles together. pure beauty - Garfieldtop10s

3Super Mario Bros. 2

Are you talking about New Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 2, or Super Mario Bros. : The Lost Levels?

The item says Super Mario Bros. 2, but the picture next to it is NEW Super Mario Bros. 2.

4Super Smash Bros. 64

The fighting game, but on the n64. - Garfieldtop10s

5Sinking Simulator 2D
6Super Mario Sunshine

I'm stunned this would be a lesser known game But actually if you look at the stats even though this was consider one of the best Gamecube games ever but compare it to other titles it is shockingly low - Curti2594

A great platformer with a good story. People hate it for being very tough. - Garfieldtop10s

8Sonic Adventure 2

This game rules. I love most of the stages (screw you crazy gadget), the chao garden, and the music. This game is a gcn/dc gem. - Garfieldtop10s

9Crazy Taxi

An amazing arcade/dreamcast title where you have to get people to a destination under a time limit - Garfieldtop10s


SUCH a beautiful game that NO ONE knows about!

The Contenders

11Chrono Trigger
12Time Splitters 2

One of the most fun multiplayer-Splitscreen shooters with very great customisation options.
Also it has so much variety to offer.

Most underrated FPS ever.The game has great customisation options and is very addictive.The controls are good and it runs smooth.Its like Goldeneye 64 in faster and with time traveling.The most fun with the game I had with the splitscreen mode.I can't understand why it didn't sell very well.

13Grim Fandango
14Team Fortress 2V1 Comment
16Spec Ops: The Line
17Kirby Air Ride

A really good racing game. A key piece of my childhood. - Garfieldtop10s

19Mario Kart: Super Circuit

The most overly hated Mario kart game is actually good. good controls, creative tracks, and amazing music. - Garfieldtop10s
