    Dinosaurs for Hire


    Saw it at work for $5 CIB, and from the name alone (and awesome cover art), it was a no-brainer. Thoroughly enjoyed the Contra clone.
    Also, the fist fight is great, I suggest you watch it.

    The Vectorman games were great! Too bad Sega hasn't bothered with making a new one of those.

    This. The Sonic's Genesis Collection is worth picking up for those games alone. And I think they were working on a Vectorman game for last gen but it got cancelled.

    Anyone remember Sword of Vermilion? I was totally addicted to that game when I was a wee lad.

    Out of curiosity, wasn't there a thread like this a long time ago? Something about underrated or overlooked games?
    ...I ask of the guy who made the thread and didn't even bother to actually participate...

    i was always a fan of chakan, i remember little to nothing about the game other than it being a hack n slash type game, but the main character looked cool and let's face it, that's why you buy games

    I just got around to beating that game last month. Picked it up for around $5-$7 because Yu Suzuki designed it. It wooped my ass until I got to around level 5 when I could take a hit. I enjoyed 100%ing that game.

    If you have a physical Genesis, X-Men has one of the most amazing game twists of all time.

    And X-Men 2: Clone Wars is actually a fabulous, fabulous game. Surprising but true!

    I just remember that the level select cheat code forced you to plug the controller into the Player 2 slot, which I thought was fucking weird. Then, several years later, I played Metal Gear Solid and no longer thought it was weird.

    I always loved Haunting: starting Polterguy such a unique game where you scare people out of your house. btw its an EA game back when EA did games other then sports.
