About The Gameslingerone of us since 11:43 AM on 05.02.2012



The Gameslinger's blog, Games Obscura, is a blog dedicated to covering strange, obscure, underrated and overlooked games. Some games covered are amazing games that were simply overlooked or forgotten. Some are flawed or poorly received, yet have interesting aspects or concepts that make them worth a second look. Others are downright weird; but fun and interesting, too. In any case, all are worth digging up and taking a second look at, and that's what this blog is all about: In-depth second looks at games that are worth rediscovering, for one reason or another.

I take requests and suggestions! If you know a game that was underrated, obscure, strange, overlooked or poorly received, and you think that it is worth discovering and giving a good second chance, then let me know!

Send any requests or suggestions to: [email protected]

You can also leave suggestions in the comments section, or send them to me via a PM.

Feel free to browse through all my articles; the material in them generally isn't time-sensitive, and I check comments on all of my articles, new and old!
