    One game that quite a few people seem to not like was Jedi Academy. Aparently it wasn't as good as playing as kyle katarn, the story was weak and it the levels lacked cohesion (also, deathpits and snipers). This was the first real star wars game I played (discounting Episode 1 and podracing on pc, which I both loved, but nevermind), so I loved it to death. I would still play it if the disk hadn't gotten scratched.

    Mods were quite good also.

    Jedi Academy really was the best game of the Jedi Knight games. While Jedi Knight and Jedi Knight 2 were good, Jedi Academy has the most consistently good level design and offers much more opportunity for saber fighting as well as more variety in the different saber styles.

    Also, yes, the lack of deathpits and snipers. There are honestly only a couple levels in JK2 where there isn't at least one deathpit and the snipers are terrible and tend to fill the levels they're in so that the levels can be filled with deathpits and snipers. Also, the shooting segments are just terrible. The first Jedi Knight just hasn't aged well at all.

    The game was great right up to the point where they gave you the cool new lightsabers and then let an intern design all the levels.

    Crimson Sea. I don't know what about it, but I loved that game. Though the love story in it was the worst I've ever come across. I think they shared a total of ten words between each other before "I can't live without you!"

    Legacy of the Wizard for the NES.

    I don't know why, but somewhere around once a year I dig out this game and dive into it again. I play it for hours and hours but never get anywhere because I can't figure out where I am at any given time, much less what to do. And yet... I keep playing. Then I stop.

    Then, some months later, the cycle repeats. I've never beaten the game. Hell I dont think I've even ever gotten one of the 'crowns' Ive heard you are supposed to get. Hell, the only thing I am good at is falling. Yet, I can't stop.

    I am currently playing and deeply enjoying Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure. This is a bad game, make no mistake about it. So far I've had it so the camera was upside down, glitched through walls, been stuck in an attacking animation for an hour, and general suckiness, like your guys will just stop moving for no reason or the creatures you're attacking just despawn at half health so you can't eat them for health. The environment is bland as hell too, and since what you're doing is going from portal to portal unlocking new monsters, you get lost easily.

    I still love it though. I love ocean based games and there's so few of them that I'll take what I can get. It's just so fun to swim around and leap out of the water even if half the time I hit a tree and die.

    I really liked T.R.A.G. on PS 1 :(

    Also Cybernator on SNES. It was the first anime giant robot smashing game I'd ever played though.

    I dunno if these applied but I loved and played to exhaustion Mission Impossible and Shadows of the Empire on the N64. Also, Rebellion on the PC, but I suppose this one has some following around here.

    Hahaha. I actually picked that up about 6 months ago to go back through.

    I'm fairly sure I beat it when it first came out, but it's a lot harder than I remember.

    "Oh, here, how about a fight with an AT-ST?" or "Do some pitch-perfect jumps over a bottomless pit".

    And then there's the fact that you die in roughly 2 shots, which is fine, it fits the universe, but holy shit.

    That game is universally awesome. It is an absolute masterpiece of puns in videogaming.

    PLASMA!!!!!

    You should finish it. It might be hard to go back to, but it's beatable in like 4 hours, and the music is still amazing.

    Maybe I'm exaggerating, it's been a while. But the game isn't very long. I've beaten it like 6 times, and it doesn't take more than an afternoon of playing; it's not like it's very complicated or difficult.

    Yea, one of the boss battles, so you could never win...

    Oh well, it was awesome and me and friends plugged way too many hours into it. I am trying to remember which weapons were hilariously overpowered.

    I remember some hilarious glitches would come up with infinite ammo with the miniguns secondary fire, such as it never allowing your "special power" thing you could pick up to run out.

    MX Superfly and I spent many a night together, racing and doing stunts. But perhaps it wasn't unpopular because of its quality, which still was rather poor, perhaps it was just unpopular because it was a game about racing motocross bikes.

    *tiptoes out of the Mass Effect thread*

    I have an abiding love for Empire II: The Art of War (1995), the virtually unknown (and unloved when known) sequel to the classic Empire. E2 played nothing like Empire. Existing fans gave it a "WTH?" and new fans didn't appear.

    E2 was a simple turn-based tactical game that offered PBEM and network play with I-go-you-go and simultaneous execution -- a play mechanic Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord (2000) was lavishly praised for, but released five years earlier. It included a full editor that allowed you to build maps, define units, and cobble the two together into scenarios. It even came with a simple bitmap editor to design your own unit icons.

    I played the hell out of this game for five years. At one point, I even hosted a website where you could download scenarios. A memorable one by Jean-Claude Bésida recreated the entire invasion of France and the Low Countries with a 90x64 map, 32-hour turns, and 488 units. I built a number of science fiction scenarios myself, on scales ranging from 1 unit = 1 man to 1 unit = 1 division.
