Has anybody heard of these three games? Are they any good, bad, what?
Also, please post any games that you think barely anybody has heard of as well.

I've only played and finished Black Sigil. Its a JRPG that was developed by a western team. Its good but flawed and has quite a few bugs.

I've played Theresia but haven't finished it yet. Its a horror visual novel that has a few puzzles and item hunting elements.

I've heard Fighting Fantasy was good. I own the gamebook it's based on and it was great. I played a bit of the DS game. Its a first person RPG like the Elder Scrolls but there are limitations. If you can get it for cheap, go for it.

Fighting Fantasy is decent if you like old school wrpgs. Isn't the greatest, but probably your best portable solution.

Despite the bugs that I never encountered, Black Sigil is amazing.

Yeah, I loved Black Sigil. But there are a few glitches & bugs. Also, be sure to set the normal text to the fastest speed. For some reason, the game will crash at some conversations if you don't. People also complained about the very high-encounter rate in Black Sigil, but I think they were just being whiny. It's really not that bad and it's pretty easy to run away from most. Then there's also the MP that heals as you walk.

Game starts out really slow though, even with combat set to the fastest speed. It takes a few hours before it feels like the combat progresses at a good speed. And some battles can take quite long due to the environment and character placement.

I kind of liked Fighting Fantasy, though I've never beaten it. First person fantasy game. It can be a bit tough due to some rather unresponsive hit detection however (nothing wrong with difficulty when it's fair, but difficulty based on some messy collision detection isn't good). It's not an amazing game, but it's certainly not a bad one either. I remember seeing a review destroy the game utterly and it wasn't anything close to being bad when I ended up playing it myself.

Black Sigil I actually quite like. Though like Fighting Fantasy I've yet to beat it, I need to dedicate some time to it again. Very old school looking turn based RPG that you could almost swear was originally a SNES game, except that it wasn't. It does start slowly, but it picks up. The battle system takes elements from Chrono Trigger (among other classic RPGs). Random encounters happen a bit too frequently for my tastes but I grew up during the 16bit era and am pretty used to that, grew the patience for this sort of thing (though if you lack patience then you're probably not going to like that aspect). But overall I enjoyed the story and gameplay, and particularly love the nostalgic and well designed 16bit art. I'd highly recommend it provided you know what you're getting into (which is an old school SNES style RPG with random battles and all).

I've only played some of Black Sigil and It sucked balls. Too many glitches and lack of save points ruined it for me. It was a failed Chrono Trigger wannabe.

seems like we're only allowed to post about RPG's in this thread but...

Alien Chaos 3D is pretty good and I dont think most people know of its existence since its only available online. I bought mine at walmart.com

It is short, only like 2 hours top to get through the main game. But it is a pretty good game if you are familiar with the classic SmashTV. Well this is similiar shoot everything in sight and survive except from a side view with platforming.

some of the challenge modes are fun for me and keep me coming back for highscores.

I have Theresia. However, I haven't played it much so I can't really say much about it. If I get a chance, I should give it another try.
