A look back in the past at the best RPGs to be released on the SNES.
Shadowrun and 7th Saga was pretty good too.
Now there was a Jrpg worth PLAYING! Good fun, good difficulty, good times. Had a spiffy battle transition to boot!
Must agree. That list is incomplete without Shadowrun.
Wierd but the List is sorta right!
Final Fantasy III/VI and Earth Bound would be my picks. IMO FF3III/VI is the best in the series. All the people that played it before they played FFVII know what I'm talking about. The rest think the series started with VII. I would also rather have a full remake of III/VI than VII.
doesnt FF remake release today?
You are thinking off FFIV for the DS.
FFVI remake came out a year or two ago for the GBA. I was going to buy another GBA for it until I read the difficulty was lowered and it was easy compared to the original.
No doubt FF6 was the best in the series. IMO, the best RPG ever made. FF6 > FF7. Still wouldn't mind seeing an FF7 remake, though.
Earthbound for #1!!!
Whenever you see Super Mario RPG on a list of great games you know the person is a gamer and knows his stuff... Those top 3 games could go in any order they're all amazing.
We may quibble about the order, but no doubt, those were the top RPG's on that system. Some of them are amongst the best all time.
the kids that played ussually got punched in the face by me until they told me about wolfenstein/quake on pc. Before that it was teenage mutant ninja turtles all day. Sorry about that, I grew up hardcore.
Yeah only nerds played rpgs... That's why Vin Diesel did the foreword for the 25th anniversary Dungeons & Dragons book. He played it as a kid.
I know this doesn't qualify perfectly for this topic but my favorite SNES game was A Link to the Past.
Chrono Trigger is the best. I wish a remake of this one.
Indeed , and i wish those , especially FFVI would get the 3d home console remake they deserve , instead of being "shoved" onto portables , sometimes , like in CT's case , without even being a remake , but pretty much a straight port
If a game is as great as all say it is, then it needs no improvement.
I think final fantasy 2/IV had a fantastic story and was a great game. I liked how many characters you could obtain in FF 3/VI though. Both of these were fantastic games imo
Chrono trigger is not better then final fantasy 6
although they are both at the very top of my list
What happened to Soul Blazer, FF6, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Terranigma, Lufia, Illusion of Gaia, Lufia II, etc. ? Seriously, this guy forgot about these? Half of the games that I have listed are better than those on his list... BUT it could just be personal preference, of course.
Well I agree with you as well mate, I loved Secret of Mana, Terranigma and Lufia more than most on that list. Still great list though. They don't make RPG's like they used to :(
Secret of Mana is on that list, as is Final fantasy VI. The author doesn't consider A Link to the Past to be an RFP as you don't level your character up. Its an action adventure. Did you all even read the article? And of course its personal preference. Its the guy's opinion after all.
No Lufia, no care.
