I think I've posted these before, but here they are again:

Savage: http://www.newerth.com/ - Certainly flawed, but a lot of fun if you can get past the problems.

Alice: http://www.ea.com/alice - Excited and terrified about the sequel

This one's a bit of a stretch, but I'm also going to say Prey. I think the game did okay and it isn't exactly unknown, but I also think a lot of people gave it a pass because they thought it was just another Doom clone. It amazes me how many newer games that I play now that are doing things Prey did, and Prey combines a whole bunch of them together in a really polished way.

Very much so, if you're a PC gamer and these games are by no means "unknown".

EDIT: Why don't youtube videos embed properly?

Okay, remembered my last game.

Z


Not exactly unknown but old enough for many people these days to not know about it.

Possibly my favourite RTS ever! Haven't played it in at least 10 years... time to see if I can manage to get it working.

Jane's Advanced Tactical Fighters
I played this game probably more than any game I have ever played, and I still wish Jane's Combat Simulations was around to give us goodies that were fun to play without being over the top on realism.

MetalTech: Earthsiege
One of my favorite all time games, even though at the time it came out my soundcard was not compatible so I had to play it in silence.

Colecovision Venture



Atari 2600 Vanguard



Intellivision Football



These are of course known to the older people here but to the youngsters these are probably unknown.


Edit: Oops I forgot the PC part
