    Default games that never "made it"

    Not every game can hit it big like Call of Duty or Halo. Some games just never quite made it.

    sadly many of these great treasures are overlooked or overshadowed by other games.

    Killer Instinct could make a sweet comeback, maybe vs. Mortal Kombat.

    Rayman Origins is seriously underrated, I was surprised so few people play it.

    Credits to Sworn Metalhead for the awesome banner!

    Natural Selection 2 and Ravaged are both fantastic but they seem to get ignored on Steam a lot.

    Also Katawa Shoujo is a little overlooked, but that's a bit of a niche genre to begin with.

    Team17's Worms franchise never made it that big, but the games did start going backwards since 2000 and still continue to do so, so that's their own fault.

    Shantae

    which may have been a failure because it was a GBC game released in 200****ing1 or, anyway, within the life span of the GBA. Along with a few other reasons.

    For its genre, though, it's probably one of the most popular.

    Pretty much any good game that doesn't involve guns. (With a few exceptions, of coarse.)

    That makes no sense at all. I can 300+ Games that "made it" that didn't have guns.

    Earthbound. It's a great game and when it was first released no one really played it. Now it's like $100+ for a cartridge. It did decent in Japan though

    So what you're saying is, every Nintendo game ever made that isn't Metroid Prime.

    "A few" exceptions?



    If that's really the case, you seriously need to look at a much larger game library, sir.

    You guys must go to different communities then. In a lot of places I go, that's all that's ever talked about are shooting games.

    I can think of a few games that didn't sell well, assuming that what the topic is about.

    Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Viewtiful Joe, Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (Wii remake), Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure. There are probably more games that I am missing out but we will be here all day if I start listing them out.

    This comment is wrong on so many levels.

    I really doubt that.

    Said MugoUrth, the man posting his comment on a forum dedicated to Pokemon and Nintendo games.

    It's becoming more well-known, but Real Lives.

    If the creators would upgrade the interface, it would be an awesome game

    Well we're on a Pokémon forum, you know. A popular series of games without guns. I think that alone must say something.

    Real Lives is popular in at least one corner of the internet, that you must never visit.

    As for a game to contribute, how about Pokemon Snap. It has a cult following, but obviously didn't sell that well, at least not well enough for a sequel (which would be amazing on Wii U with the gamepad as the camera).
