    Well I dont know if there is thread but lets say this thread is dedicated to Good games which never received any publicity or was a failure due to some reasons or another.You may have picked this game in a sale or clearance .Or downladed on net as abandonware/freeware.Or some magzine gave it away as freeware.

    The first game

    Metal Fatigue
    A little known Real Time strategy of year 2000.
    A futuristic RTS which was every scific geeks dream.
    Build a robot army to conquer the planet.
    30 level single player campaign and 30 multiplayer maps were present
    It featured three layered combat (air,ground underground),3D isometric view ,4-part robo customization,
    Aerial and underground combat,railguns and what not !!
    The AI was also good .

    Reason of failure:
    Too advanced for year 2000
    Bad marketing
    company was sold after 15 days of release .The new owners werent interested in it.
    Bugs were never fixed .
    It was not starcraft .:rolleyes:

    By 2004 it was marked as abandonware . :(

    If you get a copy in sale or something ,be sure to pick .Though it doesnt work perfectly on vista/7

    Clive Barker's undying was great back in the day. Not unheard of I guess -- but it was very underrated upon release and then gained a huge following in the years after I think.
