  1. orion burger art style reminds me a lot of DoTT

  2. ok i played loom, but since when was it voiced?!?

  3. Broken Sword had it's 5th installment in the last few years – hardly a forgotten classic for players of point and click. It's a staple.

  4. did anybody else play Riven? that was such a great game

  5. One Quest is very very forgotten rpg game can't even find it on google just comes up with frickin troll quest like Runescape it has a ridiculous amount of skills to train

  6. Broken Sword The Shadow Of The Templars is possibly the greatest adventure game of all time.

  7. The Neverhood is one of my favorite childhood games

  8. Orions Burger == Day of the Tentacle spinoff?

  9. Stupid Invaders (2001) from space goofs animated series , decent humor , great game

  10. "top ten forgotten" and you do nothing but list classics. fucking hell.

  11. Why did you put total distortion as an honorable mention it should've been #1!

  12. Relentless, under the killing moon, waxworx, WEIRD DREAMS!!! AMGIA VERSION. Leasure suit larry series, cruise of corspe, cruse of enchanta, indiana jones and the last crusade, king's quest 5, or 4… one of them…. "fasination was a great game, future wars and elvia.

  13. Let's not forget Dementia, also known as Armed and Delirious. Imagine the Neverhood crossed with South Park. Considering the horrible difficulty of this game, the fact that the best walkthrough was written by the LEAD PLAYTESTER, it controls like shit and is a nightmare to get running for modern systems, its loss is probably for the best.

    Look no further than Ross's Game Dungeon for more information.

  14. ethiopian likes anime but thats d4tdudel says:

    НЕверьвХУДО

  15. Does anyone know the game where you go deep underground and help metal creatures in the center of the earth? Its an old pc click games. can anyone help?

  16. The Putt-Putt and Freddie Fish series were amazing games!! Dont forget about them!

  17. To be honest I came only for the neverhood

  18. The original “Shadowrun” games. SNES and SEGA.

  19. WatchMojo, PLEASE PLEASE Do a top 10 Full Motion Video games!! I been urging to play some, but do not know what are the best ones out of the horrible loads we have in existences. My likes I have played in the early days were "Foxhunt" on PS1, "Phantasmagoria" and number 1 favorite "Gabriel Knight. The Beast Within"!!

  20. What about Heart of Darkness or Another World?

  21. These games may be forgotten, but they're still more known about than I am.

  22. Nice Video I Enjoy It 💗💗💗💗💗

  23. Deja Vu had a 'Gun1' item…I thought it said 'C*nt' at first glance lol.

  24. This is one of my top ten favorite games of all time (Sanitarium)

  25. in my opinion you missed dark seed 2 , a game from based on the giger (alien creator) artworks , so dark and bizzar

  26. NORMALITY – it was great story, but totally forgotten now 🙂

  27. I agree that Sanitarium is a terrific game. I don't think that Circle of Bllod/Broken Sword could be classified as forgotten, though. It comes up in just about every dialog about adventure games, it's pretty famous. I thoght The Neverhood was a riot!

  28. I'll probably put terraria in number 1

  29. Deja Vu frustrated me to no end. I kept getting stuck, and some jerk always kept mugging me and stealing my money.

  30. I wouldn’t classify Broken Sword and Beneath a Steel Sky as obscure adventure games. Would replace with Toonstruck and Stupid Invaders instead

  31. Clock Tower and SOS by Human Entertainment

  32. Lol

    Broken sword and forgotten in the same sentence?

  33. I barely hear THAT voice in the more recent videos.
    Why don't we hear THAT voice anymore?

  34. Victoria Morsell did have a beautiful chest in Phantasmagoria!

  35. Implying Beneath A Steel Sky and I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream are "forgotten" is about as true as saying Jacob's Ladder is forgotten. If this video actually did its research it would've included some of these titles:

    Gold Rush!
    Jack Orlando
    Codename Iceman
    The Colonels Bequest
    The Dagger of Amon Ra
    Conquests of Camelot
    Dragonsphere
    Elvira
