Games you're convinced nobody else is playing?

Whether it's an obscure title, or just a really old one, or perhaps one nobody else liked, what are some games you're playing right now, games you play frequently, or games you're planning on playing soon, that you're convinced nobody else is playing? (Alternatively, if somebody else posted a game you also play, feel free to point that out to make them feel better.)

Just now I was playing Bloody Roar 2 for the PS1. Just a few games on my backlog include Vexx for the Gamecube, the original .hack// series on the PS2, Record of Agarest War for the 360, Mega Man: Network Transmission for the Gamecube, Lost Magic for the DS, Red Ninja on the PS2, Blue Stinger on the Dreamcast, and Steambot Chronicles on the PS2.

Among all the games I play with friends, there's the occasional obscure title I have to put them through, such as Evil Zone on the PS1, Goldeneye: Rogue Agent on the Gamecube, Arcana Heart on the PS2, Samurai Shodown 6 on the Wii, and Gundam: Federation vs. Zeon on the PS2.

Probably Project Overkill.

It's an obscure Konami game in which you are playing a group of mercenaries hired to essentially kill everything on a colonized planet that your bosses want to occupy. There is no hero here, because it seems that while the government on the planet is fairly evil, your bosses are ruthless bastards for sending you on missions specifically to kill, destroy, sabotage, and so on.

There is one VERY IMPORTANT thing to note about this game, though: The escort missions can be skipped.

I'm also playing that, and I don't understand all the hate it gets.

As for unpopular games I'm playing: Jumping Flash and Godhand.

Well, I'm playing Agarest War. It's a pretty fun game. I just wish most of the females didn't dress the way they do (Fyuria) and weren't ridiculously busty (everyone who's not Fyuria).

I remember Network Transmission on Gamecube and really want to play it. I also remember having a Bloody Roar 2 demo for my PS1.

Playing Federation vs Zeon. Picked it up for nostalgia and it's not very polished at all. I wish I could aim manually or loosely aim after a lock.
Have Steambot Chronicles because my brother saw Atlus on the box. Then we learned that they publish as well as develop. Currently sitting in the (ridiculously large) backlog.
My brother borrowed Red Ninja for a while and it severely lacks in some points. The concept is pretty cool, but the execution is not.

I played it for a while. I know I played up to the Zeppelin part and then a bit after, but then got sick of all the driving. And I was already frustrated at it for a different part when you lead the Nazis into an ambush. That blonde lady kept on trying to charge straight into all the Nazis and died quickly, making me instafail.

Than and I was playing on an SD TV back then and the black and white sections were a little tough on the eyes.

Holy insane coincidence batman! ...I was just seriously considering getting that game. There's a game store in my town that sells games going back to the PS1 (and further back), and Bloody Roar 2 was basically the only one I saw that I really wanted. I played the demo a lot when I was a kid and it was a blast, but then I got Bloody Roar 3 and it was disappointing. Is 2 any good?
Bloody Roar 2 is great. It's when they went next gen with 3 that the series kinda fell off. But personally, I love 2.

As for me, I'm currently re-playing through Psi-Ops and finally playing through Earthbound. Two underrated classics of different generations.

anno 2070 noone seems to have heard of it

its a game were you build up a city and you can choose between two sides kind i think its good
Anno is a great series, I'm rather partial to Anno 1404 though. With 2070 being so new and one of Top Sellers on Steam its a hard sell saying no one is playing though

Metal Arms: Glitch in the System. A hard-as-penis TPS featuring robots that you can gleefully dismantle piece by piece. Holds up quite well, even in graphics.

SimAnt. One of the games that marked my childhood; but apparently obscure enough that it turns up on "Can you believe this existed" lists in magazines and on websites.

Tachyon The Fringe. A damn fine space game, with Bruce Campbell as the main character's VA. My favorite part is when he calls you pathetic for cheating. I lost the disk for about 10 years, until I bought it again on Steam.
