Gamings Lost Gems Answered

There are many games out there that have seemed to escape the public eye and has slipped under a sea of top-tier titles and remain unknown to many unfortunate gamers out there. I call upon the eccentric and the wise to cast their knowledge of lost gaming gems to those of us here, and let us have a few hours of gaming goodness. Remember that this is only for the lesser known titles, not the best or worst games. Thank you, and have fun.

I wouldn't exactly say that -- Contra is a pretty popular game back then. It may not be as popular now, but they still make remakes and sequels on the Wii shop channel.

I am not sure if this qualifies, but lately ive been killing time with POWDER, which is free to download and available for several systems: http://www.zincland.com/powder/index.php?pagename=about

(though i should warn that if you want fast action a turnbased roguelike is not it... it is also not very forgiving with regards to savegames - but the gameplay is solid and there are lots of little secrets to find)

Yowza -- that's hard core right there. I've only heard (And played) Paper Boy! I ought to check the others out -- thanks for the contribution. Meanwhile I will bring attention to a more modern gem with Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii). This is an intense hack-and-slash game with beautifully hand-drawn levels and enemies. The story is one all to its own, and I would recommend it to everyone.
