1020th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Square Publisher: Square I think I decided quite early on that I would want a Final Fantasy game as my final RPG and, by extension, as the penultimate game on the list. I originally planned it to be Final Fantasy VI, but┬áBefore […]

997th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Team Andromeda Publisher: Sega Once upon a time, years ago by now, we covered Panzer Dragoon Orta, an enjoyable 3D shooter focused around flying around your enemies and shooting from all sides while you’re on a dragon. It was incredibly difficult, but […]

990th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES/Saturn/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Quest Publisher: Quest/Riverhillsoft/Atlus As I’m going through I’m reaching all of these minor milestones. It’s been a while since I played my last western RPG – arguably Shadowrun or Dungeon Master if you’re looking at something more traditional. They are the […]

983rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Nippon Ichi Software Publisher: Nippon Ichi Software Having played it some time ago, I still have fond memories of the first Disgaea game. The story was insane and a bit meta, but is what mostly stuck with me while the mechanics […]

979th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Camelot Software Planning Publisher: Sega It feels like I’ve been needing to get through a number of Saturn-only titles that never gained a port, so require quite a bit more effort on my part. I played Burning Rangers last week and I’m […]

#257 Breath of Fire II

971st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom In the list of RPGs, the Breath of Fire series feels like an also-ran – a decently successful series that never quite got the traction Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest did. It had six entries – one of which […]

959th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 3 Publisher: Square Chrono Trigger was one of the biggest RPGs of the 16-bit era and probably rivals only Final Fantasy VI in its focus on JRPG character building and story telling, even outshining it as it […]

#256 Shadowrun

948th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Beam Software Publisher: Data East I’ve always been curious about the Shadowrun universe. Not enough to play a paper and pencil RPG with it, but there’s something about the cyberpunk universe that’s interesting, with a dystopia that seemed prescient. Yeah, I backed […]

940th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Strategy Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Square Enix Publisher: Square Enix It’s time to start mopping up some franchises that had several entries still left – and with the immense series that’s Final Fantasy I need to tackle entry eleven out of twelve (and yes, I’m leaving a […]

917th played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Marvelous Interactive Publisher: Marvelous Interactive/Natsume I’ll be honest, the main reason Harvest Moon appears to be known now is that it’s the game Stardew Valley is based on – a decent enough recommendation, but not necessarily noteworthy enough to […]
