Zombies Ate My Neighbors
(SNES & Sega Genesis)This game my friends takes me back to simpler time of all my troubles being brisked away by walking across the street and playing this game with my best friend. We would battle as Zeke and Julie to save the overrun town of their zombie infestation. Developed by Lucas Arts and published by Konami I recommend this game for it's use of weapons and really becomes challenging in time.
Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber
One of the first discussions I had with my college roommate which I still firmly remember was a discussion of old school games. We both brought up this game, it's a rare one too and I knew he was a true old school gamer. It's a strategy RPG but the story of your character Magnus Gallant is really enthralling and is worth the play for any gamer.
(Play Station 1)
This side scrolling adventure started with a demo disc I believe I received in the mail for a mailing list for a magazine. After playing it I knew it was worth purchasing, I was still young and this was my type of game. Basically you play as Tomi and are trying to steal your grandfather's bracelet back from some evil pigs, damn pigs. Fun, energetic, memorable.
Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3
(Game Boy)This is one of my favorite game boy games still I recently played it through when I discovered the box full of my old game boy games. It's really a neat adventure and a nice break from always playing as that punk plumber :D. The powerups in this game aren't classic like SMB but they are bad ass compared to Mario's. The adventure is fun and really a good story for a handheld game from 1994.
Well let me know your guys' experience with these games and I'll be sure to check back about what you have to say. Hope you liked my list of a few underrated games. I could really use a cup of coffee right now and think I'm gonna go fix myself one. Have a good one all.
