As the title implies, what is the game you think people are least likely to know of that you've ever owned? Note the owned part! It can be games you no longer have, and it can't be free browser games or something like that

This is a tough one for me, but I guess I'd say...

Tail Concerto - I just bought this game. I'm not even sure how I know of it (and something tells me I don't want to know). It's not from an established series. In fact, outside of a spiritual successor (that was not that successful), it never had a sequel. In fact, before that successor, it was very cheap to get ahold of (but stupid me decided to wait it out), meaning it was probably not well-known. I certainly have only known one person before me who talked about it. It did have a demo disc out there, though, so I'm sure it's not super-obscure. Still, I can't think of any other game I own that a big-time gamer wouldn't know about.

Runner-ups:

The Shadow Heart Series
Ar Tonelico
Atelier Iris
Summon Knight: Swordcraft Story

Since those all had sequels, obviously quite a few people must have known about them, but none of them really talk about them much anymore.

Actually Solatarobo is a spiritual successor to this game. Most obscure game I own is Cima: The Enemy for the GBA.

No one seemed to appreciate this game. It was really good! In fact, Shawn Smith a.k.a. Shawnimal, the creator of Ninjatown and various other toys and characters is one of my friends!

It was talked about a decent amount when the english trailer came out but not much after that.

I personally really like this game, it's too easy but the characters make up for it.


Tales of Eternia is a close second. I think people mostly got into the series with Symphonia. I think I prefer Eternia though.

EDIT: Actually, I think Soul Blade is the most obscure game I have. Nobody remembers it, and it's the first game in the SoulCalibur series.

Yes, I mentioned it, though not by name. And how was CIMA? I remember reading an article about it in Nintendo Power, but never owned it myself.

I keep forgetting to try Ninja Town. There was a lot of talk about it around here when it was released, I think. Or maybe I'm thinking of IGN...

I'd actually say those are pretty well known, but I haven't looked at your Backlog yet. Amd I'm not looking at it. You list things with their Japanese names. I'd have to look up every game.

Yeah I don't think I have any obscure titles, I know I have titles that didn't sell well (MadWorld) but I doubt any are unknown
Edit: it's ok sorry I like to list them in there Japanese names :D

Well, I guess Harvest Moon 64 could've been considered "obscure" back then when I got it.

I used to own Super Magnetic Neo on the Dreamcast, I think I still have it buried somewhere but my Dreamcast doesn't work anymore.

On the PS2, both of the first 2 games I got for it were very obscure (RPG Maker 2 and Magic Pengel). In fact pretty much none of the games I played on it in 2003 (the year I got it) were released in Europe. (We also got Xenosaga for Christmas and borrowed my sister's Namco Museum disc with the arrangements). We also got RPG Maker 3 in 2005.

On the DS, the two most obscure games I own are Dig Dug Digging Strike and Retro Game Challenge.

@ogo79 - which one? If you mean Brain Lord, I like it a lot, even though it's got so many issues (it's not a great game, but it's a good game in its own right); if you mean Mickey Mouse: Magic Wands!, I had it since I was a kid. What I find fascinating about the latter is that on the cartridge there is the Nintendo ribbon on it that implies that it sold over a million units; and yet, no one knows how many copies of it were actually sold. That is just mindblowing, and the fact that it's rarely talked about or even mentioned makes it really obscure. It's a decent action/puzzler hybrid, with some of the most embarrassing case of Engrish I've seen in a game; the only downside is that it's too much on the easy side, but every once in a while when I play it it's a fun guilty pleasure while it lasts, all blemishes aside.
