Gaming journalism relies heavily on the top 10 list, and we seem to now have lists for just about every gaming category under the sun. Top 10 waterfalls, top 10 top 10 lists, top 10 most colourful games, top 10 games with the letter z in them etc. We literally cover everything in our lists, and we at Gamingbolt are no exception to this writing craze. With that in mind, we thought we’d bring you a list that covers the unsung heroes, those games so old, so obscure and/or so mediocre that no top 10 list dares put them in their ranks.
Any other obscure or otherwise forgotten titles that never appear in top 10 lists you can think of? Let us know about them in the comments section.
1. Star Control 2
Despite garnering a large cult following and being hailed as a forward thinking masterpiece, 1992's Star Control 2 isn't exactly a name that is on the lips of the gaming populace. It has appeared in the odd greatest game list in years past, but not near enough considering how ahead of its time it is. The planet scanning and alien race relations are very close to Mass Effect's gameplay, yet Star Control 2 never gets the same level of recognition.
