Random unpopular retro gaming gem recommendation

category: general [glöplog]
Rules:

  1. Your post must be about retrogaming and by retrogaming I mean gaming on any platform that is not current/modern or platforms that are discontinued of production. Examples of OK posts are:

    • a PC Game that was published before 3 years before the time of your post
    • a PS3 game

  2. Your post must be accompanied by a screenshot and/or a title shot.
  3. Your post must be of a relatively unpopular/undiscovered/rare/obscure game that you recommend and you also must describe why are you recommending it (so no, don't go on recommending Chaos Engine).
  4. Your post must be filtered through common sense (do I have to explain this?)

Enjoy!
PS3 is retrogaming now?!

Since the market now dictates: PS4... why not?
I'll confess, I'm secretly expecting some cool Amiga titles to show up!

Thanks for the on-topic posts so far.

As for the "retrogaming" term debate, to each his own.
