How about any Japanese game which isnt an RPG, and which either hasnt been released in the UK or even in America, or is obscure and unheard of in the West, even if it actually has?

Some examples might include games like Muramasa and Odin Sphere, shmups including character basd shmups like the Touhou games and the Shikigami no Shiro games, and Japanese 2D fighters with an anime visual style, like Melty Blood, Arcana Hearts and Twinkle Queen

Arcana Heart 3 was released on PSN in the West yesterday. Good stuff.

Some obscure games I would like to mention:

Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines.



Planescape Torment.



IMO, two of the best Western RPGs ever created imo.

Can't find any good vids to showcase exactly how good they are but take my word for it.

I've always wanted to play the vampire game, but I heard bad reviews as well as glitchy gameplay.

Planescape torment is also a game I always wanted to play, haven't heard anything bad about it so far - I just keep forgetting it exists.

While I still remember: Dark Wizard

It's a strategy game for the Sega CD.

There's also this one video game that I can't remember the title to: but it was similar to Veiwtiful joe in that it was in a comic-style type of game.
However this was much older, and still done really well and was great fun. If I ever find out the name I'll put it here.
