This.

Seriously, almost nobody has ever heard of it. It's such an amazing game but it's such a shame that barely anyone plays it.

For classic games, Abuse and Strife: Quest for the Sigil. Amazing games.

As far as modern games... perhaps Urban Terror. Yeah it's basically an open source Counterstrike clone, but it's a good one.

Whenever any discusses classic RPG's, they never mention this game, and when I bring it up, they apparently don't know what this gem is.

One of the best RPG's I've ever played.

That game is so awesome. I can't believe so few people have played it.

I'd have to go with Live A Live .

A game by Square. The original is in Japanese, but it got translated onto English, so it's all good.

You should check it out, a very cool and fun RPG.

It's the most under rated game I know of because it's simply a fucking masterpiece with absolutely amazing pacing and one of the best storylines in a video game ever.

Yes, it has awesome music to.

I remember watching my dad play this. That shit scared me back then.

Right in the nostalgia. I miss that game. I think Dark Cloud 2 was even better, but I lost it. It's somewhere at my parent's house. Also for some reason, I completely stopped playing DC 2.

Knights Contract

Things I liked, I enjoyed the magic spells and pressing the button to do a hardcore kill. I also like the updates to the magic. I didn't mind the fact that during boss battles I had to take care of the witch by having her in my arms most of the time, that may bother some people. Story is pretty good too. I have mixed feelings about the music at times, sometimes I like the music in some levels and other times I found the music to be obnoxious.

What I didn't like, the cinematic parts are annoying unless you're great at them, the ice level sucks in my opinion, the ending is too movie like and cheesy.

What the fuck is "Netplay"?

Getting back on topic, here you go. Too bad the sequel got canned after Japan got hit with that tsunami...

Netplay is multiplayer in the before-times.

Beyond Good & Evil and Odin Sphere, the latter mostly because I never usually see anyone else mentioning it here on the forums.

Basically just multiplayer back in PS2 times. It was quite fun really, played Star Wars Battlefront on it a lot. Wish I had SOCOM 3, that looked fun online too.

Lots of people love that game. It didn't really sell well but everyone who did play it loved it. Except for me, I found it a bit boring.

Huh, I guess it was only called that on certain games then, as ATV Offroad Fury 2, which came with my PS2, had online multiplayer, but it didn't have that "Netplay" thing at the top of the cover. It just had the silver box in the bottom-right corner saying what kind of internet connections you could play it on.

Another underrated game is Metal Arms: Glitch in the System. The company even had plans to create a sequel before they were bought by Blizzard. It's got a great story, and it's got some good humor as well. For example, Krunk swears every other word, and 2 of the first characters introduced are named "Hosed" and "Screwed". If you haven't played it, go do that right now. Let me warn you though, that it DOES get hard as hell really quickly, especially when you have to use a vehicle, as the RAT has awkward controls.

Oh, and I don't wanna forget the fact that sometimes when you leave the shop without buying anything, one of the shopkeepers will give you the finger. The fact that they actually censor stuff with black boxes and bleeps makes the game even more hilarious.

I approve of this. Ship combat was an amazing addition to the game, something I never see any others repeating.
