    Question Did I miss any good SNES/SFC RPGS?

    Did I miss any good SNES/SFC RPGS? RPG,JRPG,ARPG,aRPG,SRPG, or any other sorta rpgish type... thing...

    Played most of these atleast twice haha, if not more. Highlighted personal favourites.

    Treasure of Rudra
    Final Fantasy Series
    Chrono Trigger *Love this game*
    Dragon Quest/ Dragon Warrior Series *DQ4 is my fav nes RPG*
    Mother 2/ Earthbound
    Breath of Fire Series
    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
    Tales of Phantasia *Love this game*
    Terranigma *So good, fav ARPG*
    Star Ocean
    Seiken Densetsu (Mana) Series *Love SD3*
    Fire Emblem Series
    Front Mission
    Bahamut Lagoon
    Lufia Series
    Live A Live
    Illusion of Gaia
    SaGa Series
    Megami Tensei Series
    Shadowrun
    Ys Series
    Soul Blazer
    Ogre Battle
    Der Langrisser
    Ultima Series
    Drakkhen Series
    Wizardy Series
    Tactics Ogre *Love this game*
    Legend of Zelda (Cause if I don't mention it someone else will)
    A few I forgot before:
    Dragon Ball Z RPG
    Secret of Evermore
    Super Robot Wars
    Robotrek

    All 100% personal opinion, not fact. Looking for suggestions, not critic of my opinions lol. I realize there's google... but I'm hoping for something obscure though that the FANatics might know of and maybe I wouldn't find on a google search. Or perhaps PC/Handheld/NextGen games that feel like SNES/SFC games - imo a golden time.

    And if there is none left where next? I have the entire PSX collection downloaded. Should I start whoring my way through all the PSX RPGS - If so where(besides FF/DQ series)? Does Genesis have anything to offer other then Phantasy Star?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have sir, I just lump it in with the other secret of games. Indeed it is a worthy game though.

    Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
    Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
    You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
    You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
    See how dumb that model is?

    Completely unrelated though, but you probably know that playing all those games. I can't think of any, I assume "saga series" means 7th Saga and 7th Saga 2, if not, there's those, but I gotta tell you, I tried playing the first recently, and it's god-awful.

    On the PSX you can't go wrong with Legend of Dragoon and Chrono Cross. Plenty more but those are probably the two biggest not-Final fantasy titles.

    Secret of Mana, don't see it listed on your list. (nvm over looked it) IMHO is the King of RPG's of it's time. Another great series to check out is Y's.
    Aku, Soku, Zan

    Forgot about Y's, thought it was NES. You can get them on Steam now too.

    No, there was Romancing SaGa.Romancing SaGa was never released properly outside Japan for SNES, thus it is not that much well known. What concerns 7th Saga, I heard jap version was ok, and that it is actually english version is utter hardcore/grindfest with one of the bosses being potentially unkillable.

    There are almost all SNES RPGs in that list. But still you missed one - Arcana. It is first-person view turn-based dungeon crawler. it is often overlooked, but it is quite decent game.

    Tales of Phantasia is pretty good, and Lagoon is worth checking out (pretty jammin' soundtrack too). You should try ActRaiser series too, even though it's not really an RPG. You've played just about most of the good RPGs for SNES. Time to move on to Genesis!

    Arcana - ugggghhh I remember it now, I tried so hard to force myself to finish it. But I just couldn't. I like the dungeon crawlers, but something about the feel of that one just offed me. Maybe Ill choke it down haha.

    ToP indeed was good! Probably one of the most skipped RPGs, but so good. Lagoon looked bleh when I saw it, I never really gave it a fair chance tho so I'll give it another look.

    I loved Legend of Dragoon - maybe it warrants a replay, its been a while.

    Time to move on to Genesis!
    For what though?

    Well, you even listed my more obscure favourites, so feel free to have my babies!

    If possible, I recommend you to check out Golden Sun for the Nintendo handhelds, starting with GBA. There is also a remake of the very first Mana game (released as Final Fantasy Adventure in the U.S. for Gameboy), this remake is called Sword of Mana, and it kicks ass! (get in on GBA! ).

    Seriously, though. I usually come in to these kinds of thread to recommend SD3, so you kinda blew my plan xD If you haven't yet, you could always try a Single Character Challenge, which is exactly what the name implies. If this gets you hooked on Challenges, check out some of FF5's after. Hours (= months) of fun!

    Edit: I mention handheld nintendo games because they tend to channel the spirit of SNES.

    Might have to try some of them


    ..although I really, really didn't like Chrono trigger. At all. I dunno why it gets so much hype.

    I love tackling games with challenges like that. One of my favorites is the FFX No Sphere Grid Challenge. Haven't tried the SD3 one, I'll have to keep that in mind

    It's a bit of a cheesy game, and it can be REALLY difficult but I loved it as a kid and I still love it now, but play Lagoon for the snes. It's not a turn based RPG but it's more like YS.

    My personal favourite is the single-type challenge for Pokemon games. You don't know the value of held items until you've tried beating an electric gym with only fliers Gonna have to test that no-sphere thingy, but first I have to check out the game itself. I've never played any of the PS2 FFs, but I really should get around to do it soon.
