"Tales of" games are really great, even though most people don't know anything about them;
Tales of Phantasia was perfect, recently I've played its remake on Playstation 1 and was great;
Tales of Symphonia also was great, many people really didn't like Lloyd's idealism, but I think it suits perfecty for his characters;
And let's not forget about one of the greatest characters in Tales universe: Jade Curtiss. He's great, I love this guy, him mocking Luke was really funny, and the chant for Indignation was one of the best I've seen in my whole life:
"I, who stand in the full light of the heavens command thee, who opens the gates of hell..."
I liked Loom. It was a PC game back in the days when.. I don't even remember when. From the same makers as Monkey Island. It was challenging but manageable, and really funny.
Chrono Trigger too (though I don't think it can be labelled an "unknown game")
One of the only race game I ever played was Dethkarz (quite old and very short, but sooooo fun ^^)
And I recently got addicted to manic shooters, especially Touhou project 7 (Perfect Cherry Blossom) and one even less known : Guwange on Neo Geo. This game is just plain craziness...
And I looooooved Valkyrie Profile on PSX though once again is it an unknown game ?
Killer 7, simply one of the greatest games ever made, the whole plot is ingenious without being at all pretenscious, the game's soundtrack also adds to the sheer awesomeness of the title, it all fits together perfectly. If you haven't played it or heard of it look it up, it's really worth it.
Blaster Master. I just love this game, even though I could never beat it. It's the hardest game I've ever played, yet fun. I've been playing it since I was little. Since the early 90's. I miss those day XD Here's a youtube video of it in action.
Please give this game a try.
A survival horror game for the PS2 that seems to have very little fanbase, but it is absolutely fantastic, at least I think so.
Crash Bandicoot, Croc, and Spyro were my best friends when I was little. They were all animal adventure games where you must fight some evil doer in a cascade of levels; which involved finding one thing that was scattered around. Crash went down horrible when Naughty Dog stopped being the creator, I stopped playing Spyro for some reason, and same for Croc.
Gadget Racers was another awesome game in my opinion. The best game for kids if they like racing cars with the twist of flying, swimming, and other terrain gears to aid you. XD
There was a tales game that I had on a demo disk that I liked. I think it was Legendia. It was an awesome little RPG game with an interesting story.
I don't know if many people play it, but the Tenchu series was always the best ninja game series I've ever played.
Night into Dreams was a game i loved for the Sega Saturn. You had to help this joker-looking fairy save time or something. XD It was involving you running away from an egg-clock that would make you lose the game if you got sucked up by it. I even had a poster of it in my room. I loved it dearly...
There were others, but I can't remember them. XD
Chips challenge \o/
Known for it's epicness in the years of DOS, Atari Lynx and Win 95
Vampires Dawn: A RPG with horrible look but great fun...
Pokemon Pinball for GBC: I don't know why, but I still play it from time to time, although it is just a normal Pinball game with Pokemonn layout...^^
I really enjoyed Jetforce Gemini for the N64 (3rd person shooter/platformer). I have yet to beat it sadly due to the impossibility of saving all these furry tribal people (think Ewok's)...
I also really like Ikaruga.
If you take one hit you're dead (if you get hit with the opposite color you are. Red shield, you die with one blue hit, and vice versa). You can purchase it on the XBL market rather cheaply, and it's really worth it!
Those are the only 2 I can think of at the moment, though I see some pretty popular games in here. Especially the 'Tales of..." series.
Little-Known Games that I absolutely love?
Pac-man and Classic Mario. Nuff' said.
Transport Tycoon Deluxe - i just love this model railroad-optic
this game was released 1994 - and i still like to play it.
