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 […]

903rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Square Publisher: Square Thanks to a lovely Christmas present, I got the Switch port of the Mana trilogy (Collection of Mana), including the most liked Secret of Mana that ended up on the list. It took me about five months more to […]
