    When i say classic i refer to old fashion favorites like stunning story, equipment management, world maps you know the basics

    and PLEASE i want serious answers here no:
    Duhh the TWEWY is CleaRly da best cause it GoOd and stuff Duhhh
    Not saying you can't pick TWEWY, but can you please put better thought into it?

    errrm... this is rather difficult... and i kinda need a "new" game to play when I get a new flashcart
    well i would say square has FFIV, Chrono Trigger, and TWEWY but the best...

    SaGa 2, I'd say. You won't get more traditional yet modern than that outside of FFIII and FFIV.

    seriously, i don't think i ever played any better rpg,

    although, golden sun (gba) (1&2) was really one of the best too

    Fire Emblem...

    lol, jk.



    I would have to go with the Final Fantasies or Breath of Fire 1 & 2 (altough you'll need an emulator, it's well worth it).

    FF III and IV keep their battle systems in the DS remake, but aren't nearly as good as their GBA counterparts.

    Nostalgia was pretty good. Storyline was average and it wasn't very innovative, but it did a great job of using old concepts.

    most people (although not the ones who have posted so far) think that ,out of the official releases, Chrono Trigger is the best remade RPG for DS. I haven't played it though so i can't give you my opinion.

    I liked Nostalgia better than FF 3 or 4, and those are pretty much it. (Besides the Dragon Quest games because I don't like them)

    It's between Nostalgia and Dragon Quest IV and V for me. All three of them were very classic RPGS and were very enjoyable.

    FF2(US) on the Snes. FF3 & Chrono Trigger get a tight 2nd place tie though. (i use the US numbers there because, when i played em, that's how they were known [​IMG])

    FFIV just holds such a special place in my heart. First RPG i got hardcore sucked into, when it came out. Birthday present from my Grandma. She rocked (and still does heh).

    in my opinion the best ones is FF III because of the old job system, nostalgia for the dungeons, FF IV for the history
