This thread is all about the games that some people don't even know or recgonize (Not first time gamers, that is a different story). Feel free to talk about some games that many people don't seem to talk about nowadays.

The forgotten games from me would be...

Killer Instinct

Developer: Rare Ltd.

Publisher: Rare/Nintendo (Microsoft now)

Platform(s): SNES, arcade, N64

Year released: 1994

Latest released: 1995

Killer instinct is one of those fighting games with a mix of Street Fighter for the combo attacks and Mortal Kombat for the finishing moves. Though this may be a Rare and Nintendo (Microsoft) product, we haven't gotten a sequel for this game in 13-14 years, who knows if this game may clearly be dormatted (Almost like Kid Icarus but it somehow got a revival on the 3DS.). This game is more of a Mortal Kombat clone due to the finishing moves and characters losing blood when they are hit.

Power Stone:

Developer: Capcom

Publisher: Capcom

Platform(s): Dreamcast, arcade

Year released: 1999

Latest release: 2000

Power Stone is another fighting game only this time it's more like a roam-around and fight then your average fighting game. You can even pick up objects you find and you can throw them at your opponet. Then it's a race to see who gets these 3 jewels called "Power Stones" and when you collect all 4 of them, your character transforms to a super version of itself and your attacks are more powerful than jsut your normal attacks. The graphics were colorful too. It a got a sequel titled "Power Stone 2", a more of the upgraded version of the original game, only up to 4 players can fight each other, oh and also 2 player co-op.

reason Killer Instinct was forgotten by most is because Mortal Kombat flooded over it

I liked KI.....mainly due to SaberWolf

anyway...I find the Ogre Battle series to be a gone game...they have only made a few.....and none have been on the newer systems

Wave Race 64 - N64

Well I have to agree on that but if you have a Gamecube, Wave Rave: Blue Storm was the lastest game in the series. Who knows if we'll ever get it as a Wii title...

Well, that and Street Fighter too. Midway (Original owner of MK) has last year sold Mortal Kombat to Warner Brothers interactive, there could be a chane Midway could be gone...
