Hi! Thanks for visiting ‘Obscure Video Games.’ First and foremost, I created this site as a hobby. I enjoy playing video games when I have time, and I felt it would be fun to create a blog to write about some of these games. My posts of individual game reviews will be random, not based on any one particular game system – just whatever I feel like reviewing, I guess you could say! I should also point out that I AM NOT AN EXPERT IN ALL THINGS VIDEO GAMES, just a guy who likes playing sometimes, among other things.
Secondly, the games I wanted to review and provide information about are games that are ‘obscure’ in some way. Now, obscure might not necessarily fit the dictionary definition here. In some cases, I may review games from Japan that are ‘obscure’ to the average American game player. Or, I may review older arcade games that the general population knows little to nothing about. I tried to pick games that I just couldn’t find a ton of helpful information about on the Internet, so that those who may wish to hunt down these games for themselves would be better informed.
Any games I review come from my own collection, and I do not review games on computer emulators, although I do not have any problem with emulation – it’s just not for me. None of the games I review will be downloaded games from popular services like the PlayStation Network. All of the games I review will be in hardware format (either cartridge or disc). Also, any game images I post along with my reviews are pictures I have taken of my television with my camera, not pictures I pulled from the Internet.
Remember, my reviews are only my opinion of the game – again, I’m no expert on video games, just a regular player (when I have time). Your opinion of the games I review may be different, and that’s perfectly fine! I hope you enjoy the website.
