Games you're convinced nobody else is playing?

Since the op said to tell people if we're playing / have played a game that they listed :D :

I have played Iji. I would point out that it's free, and very fun. Sort of semi-linear metroidvania; it's split into levels, but each level is large and has secrets to discover.

I also played Mark of Kri, though I haven't finished it yet and don't have access to my ps2 right now.

As far as obscure games I've played or I am playing:

Kya: Dark Lineage on ps2. An ok platformer. It's not bad, but it isn't good either :/

I'm currently playing Desperadoes: Wanted Dead or Alive after getting it from GOG. It's the same gameplay as the Commandoes games, but in the Wild West :)

Until I met my housemate, I was convinced that no one outside of the Internet had played the original Deus Ex :p I often tend to play games that others around me don't play/ haven't heard of. When everyone else was playing Modern Warfare I was playing stuff like Far Cry 2 and Splinter Cell. Also it seemed people weren't aware of Battlefield Bad Company until the second came out with the intention of being a CoD beater. Boom, instant hype. I kind of enjoyed the first one though, probably more than the second.

Note: I know these aren't obscure in any way.

To date; I've only ever seen Grandia 2 in one person's game collection. I haven't played that game in about 10 years but I loved it. I've been searching for it for years but can't find it anywhere.

CrimeCraft GangWars. Its a third person shooter and it is actually pretty fun. I found out about it because of the steam holiday sale and even though its buggy it's quite enjoyable.

If I had to go by my friends alone than it's probably every damn game I've played in last two years. Anyway, some of the stuff I recently played that aren't mentioned that often:

Tenchu 2: Birth of the stealth Assassins
Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance
Call of Ctulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth
Beyond Good & Evil (OK,OK, I know a lot of people are talking about this one, even if it's just crying about the sequel)
Flight of the Amazon Queen

Roller Coaster Tycoon 3.
They all seem to be hiding behind their RCT3 Community forums. There's never a RCT3 thread on generic gaming sites. It saddens me. I want to socialise with players who aren't that good but still enjoy it. It's rather demoralizing seeing what other people make.
I play it! I'm shit at making the damn rollercoaster thingys, but I rule at making money. My husband is envious because I've never failed a campaign mission.

I love the game to death - especially when I'm in a bad mood and just want to pop balloons and drown people :D

the saboteur

flawed...interesting..but flawed
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.
I dont think my TV was Idealy optimised at the time..but YES even with HD I couldnt tell what the hell was going on..it was a nice stylistic Idea but I didnt work

and of coarse that natzi stripper officer....
I played Saboteur. Good game, the nazi officer was hot. Shame she was only on screen for about..... 10 seconds :(

Stranglehold servers, went on it a couple of years ago over a period of a year, only one person online and it was always the same guy. My friend had a similar experiance a year later with the same guy.

John Woo's Stranglehold.

I fucking love that game. Something about every single kill being a flying dive with doves coming out of my ass is just awesome.

It's like a gamer-hipster showdown in here!

Haha kidding, of course...

I don't think I'm playing any sort of obscure games right now. But I have played Sim Ant which was awesome...
