    Alright im in a rpg mood and im looking more towards PS1 games and N64 games and i know the n64 has like almost no rpgs so PS1 it is!

    What are the best ones to try out? Ive played all the big name ones like ff7 8 9,xgears,Crono and others like that i want ones that are great and most time fly under the rader if you know what i mean.


    Also a side note for all rpgs for any system anyone know of ones with a great love story in them like lunar 2 and ff 8?

    I didn't know Ecsaform and Linda Cubed.
    They seems Japanese only. Maybe there are fantrad.

    The 4 others listed are in English (at least, some episode from their respective series).

    Not so long ago, someone else asked the same request.
    I made a little list of RPG I remembered which could be not well known.

    Edit : Well, I didn't list them all, I listed only the games other users didn't specify before me.
    I recommend you read the entire topic to find what you want.

    Edit2 :
    Another RPG/Adventure (japanese only) :
    -Moon: Remix RPG Adventure

    Persona 2 is good. Get the translation patch for Innocent Sin, play that first, then proceed with part 2, the officially translated Eternal Punishment.

    Also try Legend of Mana [​IMG]

    I would suggest Tales of Symphonia cause thats one of the best games I've ever played....but its for the Gamecube...I guess Xenogears, Megaman Legends 1&2, uhhhh I'm tapped out...Parasite Eve 1? Tomba? Have fun either way.

    If you don't have a PSP then Valkyrie Profile is good and it's successor on the PS2 (Valkyrie Profile Silmeria) is great!

    Saying that if you could you'd probably get a lot more out of switching from PS1 to PS2 for this RPG quest.
