    Default Name a game that is excellent that many don't know about.

    Like the title suggests. What's a game that many may not know about, but is just a solid fun game that you love.

    I will ill start with a lesser known retro game on the SNES called Uncharted Waters 2 New Horizons.

    This game is extremely fun to play even now. The graphics look like it belongs on the NES, the music is only so-so, however the game itself is just epic.

    Koei takes you you back to 1522 AD. Tensions and allies sail the seas to trade, battle, and gain lands in the ports.

    You can choose one of 6 Capitans to play each with a different country they support, and a different mission.

    Joao is from Portugal, and is sent on a mission from his father the Duke to find the secret of Atlantis. On his travels he must dodge the female pirate Catalina who believes his family killed her brother and her love.

    Catilina is from Spain. Steals a ship from Spain and becomes a pirate to hunt down Joao who she believes has killed her family.

    Otto is from England. He was given a mission from the King to sink the Spanish fleet that has been giving the English traders trouble.

    Earnst is from Holland. He sails the seas to be the first person to map the world.

    Pietro is from Italy. He wishes to sail the seas to find hidden treasure around the world.

    Ali is from Turkey. He was a street kid who is given a chance to become a trader. He sails to bring fortune to himself. He also is in search for his sister who was separated from him as a child.

    There is is many ways to play, with 92 trade ports from around the world. Different ships to invest in and buy. Countries will hunt you down if you become an issue, pirates will also hunt you.

    So so many different ways to play that it is still a great game that holds heavy replay value. It's also not very well known. It's worth a look.

    Bowser's Inside Story is the best Mario RPG in existence. And yet all people ever talk about seems to be Legend of the Seven Stars, which honestly isn't even that good.

    Uniracers for SNES is probably the greatest racing game ever made.

    I can also think of several fantastic Commodore 64 games that no one ever talks about, mostly by virtue of them being Commodore 64 games. Mancopter, Lunar Outpost, Archon, Racing Construction Set, Impossible Mission, Beach Head, Pitstop series, Choplifter, Necromancer, Wizard, The Railroad Works, I could just go on and on.

    The whole Etrian Odyssey series is stellar, but fairly obscure.

    I tried so hard to play Beyond Good & Evil because I have it on Steam but it was really not running well on my system and eventually I had to give up

    Mother 3

    Although, it is known to many. Just underplayed since it was never released outside of Japan.

    Phantom Dust. It's one of my favorite games ever, and sadly very underrated.

    Dark Messiah of Might & Magic.

    It's what the Dishonored team did before Dishonored.
