The Mystical Ninja (Ganbare Goemon) series.
I've briefly sampled the SNES and GB ones, but didn't get a proper experience. I want to give one a fair shot some day.

I've been listening to this a bunch lately: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=lPlq6gbksnY
And I haven't even played the game. I really want to, but I only have a Mac and it requires a PC.
may be my favourite 'obscure' series. So far I've played a few hours of FF Legend for Game Boy. (Only FF in name - in Japan it's title translates to "Warrior in the Tower of the Spirit World ~ Sa·Ga")
I've also played SaGa Frontier for PlayStation. I think they're under-appreciated, in the US at least, because they don't tell you where to go and don't barrage you with text at every turn. I like the unique growth in different classes, like the Monsters for example. You defeat an enemy and get it's meat, which you can choose to eat and that will change that Monster's attacks and stats and all. Most of all I like the wandering and free-roam exploration of SaGa, especially in SaGa Frontier. These games really have endless hours of play for me in the future, I look forward to playing more!
is sort of obscure. It's a fusion of music and on-rails shooter. The music really drives it.
I also love playing with many music/creative games like Art Style: light trax, Bit.Trip (WiiWare)
, Electroplankton (DS)
, Flipnote Studio (DSiWare)
, Game Boy Camera, Inchworm Animation (DSiWare)
, KORG DS-10 (DS)
, M-06 Guitar Simulator (DS)
, Mario Paint (SNES)
, Otocky (FDS)
, Rytmik (DSiWare)
, WarioWare D.I.Y. (DS)
. I really adore games like this. The fusion of music, art, and interactive interface yields endless hours of creative fun.
is a lovely series. The humour, happiness and sadness, and offbeat themes really drive the series. Not to mention awesome music and unique graphics. It's exactly what I want out of an RPG. EB/Mother used to be more obscure but it's gotten more popular than it was, which is fine because sometimes you meet a person who's actually played. I just finished EarthBound Zero (Mother, the first game)
recently for Starmen.net's MOTHER Fanfest.
