Le Manoir de Mortvielle (Mortville Manor in the US), a french adventure game on Atari ST with creepy digital voices.


Theme song and its silly humming digit is stuck in my mind for the rest of my life.

Ahaha, yeah it was actually a decent game, but quite badly-programmed.

It's an amazing game and I still have the CD for it. I mean, dude...rocket bikes and grappling hooks. Arena combat set to surf rock.

I have yet to meet anyone else in person who has actually played it.

I've been aiming to play Genocide Squared for a while now, but I'm sure someone here must have played it once.

This is pretty likely, though. I've only heard about the game through the presence of a couple of soundtrack releases!

Here's my game that none of you have played: BS O.B. Golf!

This game was never released, and the only other guy who I know played it was probably the first person to even write about it at all. Worth a look, as it's quite good.

Also, any and every DOS game, like Indy 500 and Grand Prix. And Hugo's House of Horror.

Played all of those, indy most of all. In fact I still have that one! :)

I'm going to say Wizard of Wall Street for the PC. I played it in CGA - I think it was made in 1985 but I'm not sure. I'd love to post a screenshot, but I couldn't even find one online; only text references to it.

Edit: I found a link to a pic of the box.

It had little "CG" pieces that led into the actual gameplay part. God this was a long time ago.

The death animations are the best part of this game. totally graphic and gruesome.

couldn't find a great picture, but.. this was the first MMO that I ever sank serious time into. I still think about it from time to time, it had some really cool features. I also used to love the old sprites but it seems like they've redone them.

Defiance, legendary board game company Avalon Hill's attempt at making an action game.

It was like a cross of a more standard FPS and Descent. You drove a hover tank could fly briefly.

I recall liking this one, but it got savaged in reviews at the time. It seemed to attract extra hate because it was an action game coming from a company that had only ever produced strategy games. CGW in particular seemed to hate on it for this reason.

It did do a decent job of injecting some passive story into the game, and had a Half Life-lite intro, only a year or two before Half life actually came out.

Don't play a lot of obscure games, but I used to play Kingyo Chuuihou (Goldfish Warning) the game with my cousins on their imported super famicom.

The game is split into school years and semesters, and there's a roulette that choose a subject for you and each of them has its own minigame, most of them were pretty fun (while short), we just have to guess the trivia part because we don't know japanese.

NOPE. Played it, loved it.

I'll shoot back with XEXYZ. It and Dinowarz were my two obscure NES favorites. I think I might remember someone saying they've played XEXYZ in some previous thread though. Amazing soundtrack, that game.

[Edit] XEXYZ music: First level, flying stage, ending theme

Can't really think of anything. I think something like Eternal Eyes is the most obscure game I've played and I know quite a few gaffers have played it.

As a kid i legitimately rented Superman 64 and tried to play it for like 5 minutes. Also literally asked my mom if something was wrong with the tv/controller/n64

I had Spiderman 64 and loved that game, thought it would be of the same quality.

I was so wrong

Mine is Dragonstomper. It was for the Starpath add-on that played with the Atari 2600. As far as I know, it was the first actual rpg for any video game system. Though I may be wrong about that, it was certainly one of the first. And I'd be surprised if anyone else here has played it.
