they had a used copy @ gamestop the other day for 34.99! A used ps1 game (Suikoden 2) . It was like highway robbery.

Really?? I would have grabbed it.

Edit: Vagrant Story, Legend of Dragoon, Breath of Fire 3 & 4 were some favorites I don't think have been mentioned yet.

Final Fantasy VIII - Get it. It's probably my least favorite of the numbered PS1 Final Fantasy games, but still quite worth the experience.

Final Fantasy Tactics: In my opinion, skip it. I didn't care much for it, but I know lots of people will say you should play it, so it's pretty much up to you.

Final Fantasy Origins/Chronicles/Anthology: If you've not experienced any of the old NES/SNES Final Fantasy games (or Chrono Trigger), these versions are okay to get the experience. On the other hand, Chronicles was pretty crippled, but still, if you've never experienced Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger, it's worth it for the experience.

Legend of the Dragoon: It's underrated. I really love this game. It's one of my favorite PS1 RPGs, actually.

Parasite Eve: This game is a fun game, but it's a bit different from other Squaresoft/Square Enix games. Definitely an interesting game, and definitely worth a playthrough.

Brave Fencer Musashi: This is a kind of attempted Zelda killer. It's not a bad game, but it's not necessarily Squaresoft/Square Enix's best game. I got my copy for like $10, so it wasn't a bad buy for me. If I had to pay much more for it, though, I wouldn't have got it.

Edit: I don't know how I missed...

Xenogears: This is an amazing RPG. One of the best RPG experiences on the PS1. You won't find it cheap, I can almost assure you (mine was $50 used a couple months ago), but if you find it at almost any price (you should be able to find one sub-$70 if you look around), buy it immediately. You definitely won't regret it.

I've still missed a lot of good PS1 RPGs. There's tons of them I need to pick up yet, but since I've not played them yet, I won't give you any sort of speculative opinion about them.

Definitely worth it... Suikoden I and II are legendary, they've been known to sell for $80+. Greatest games of all time.

Chrono Cross. Best RPG. Ever. No scratch that. Best GAME. PERIOD.
#16 Posted by PAJ89 (2020 posts) -
Wild Arms is worth a go if you get the chance, but it isn't that easy to come by.

Thanks guys i found ff tactics 15$(in portugal)

Xenogears is a awesome game it took me many hours to get through the game. The game is a time sucker. Chrono cross is a great game I just started replaying the game last night. Final fantasy tactics is a must have game for the ps1. Parasite eve was a cool game I remember playing that game a lot when it came out. Legend of dragoon very underated game even though I sucked at doing the combos it is a very good game. Lunar the silver star that game on the ps1 is worth playing it is a challenge and the last and final boss is tough enough to knock you down for the count big time. I have only beaten ghaleon once and it was not easy.

Most of the games I'm about to list can be hard to get and pricy ... and some of them are just plain weird or forgotten

Alundra - An action\RPG Zelda like that is pretty good

Grandia - The once exclusive title for the Saturn now to PS & it was good

Legend of Mana - Action\RPG with weird twist ... it's ok but not great either

Threads of Fate - Action\RPG only played the demo when it came out and it was decent

Azure Dreams - Never played it but heard some good review ... old

Jade Cocoon - I guess it could be compared to Pokemon ... but more mature in a way

Kartia - Tactic\RPG pretty cool by atlus

Koudelka - Some what a prequel to the Shadow Hearts trilogy. Really, really bad combat but awesome characters dialogue & cut scenes.

Arc the Lad Collection - Rare & expensive ... I just gor mine three days ago weeeeeeeee! And it looks pretty cool

Shadow Madness - Never played this one ... the only thing I can say is: It had the same graphic as FF7 but came 2 years later

Guardian's Crusade - Little RPG ... nothing fancy here

Rhapsody - ... Musical\RPG if that could be the description ... not for everyone I guess well if you like songs like in Walt Disney movie, that shouldn't bother you.

Thousand Arms - Weird little RPG with some sim dating in it

#22 Posted by TheLegendKnight (1853 posts) -

Xenogears/Chrono Cross - the best

Final Fantasy VIII

Vagrant Story

Grandia

Suikoden 1-2

Koudelka - just because to connect to Shadow Hearts

also if you like strategy RPGs, get Final Fantasy Tactics and Front Mission 3. Front Mission 3 is very nice but its about mechas, so if you dislike them dont get it.

Legend of the dragoon is a great RPG.
#24 Posted by falconzss (755 posts) -

Persona: Revelations

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

Final Fantasy IX

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete

Lunar II: Eternal Blue Complete

Never forget Final Fantasy VIII, and Vagrant Story. Even GameSpot rated these as editors' choice.
#28 Posted by boybrushdred (1892 posts) -
breath of fire 4, chrono cross, ff8, grandia, legend of legaia, parasite eve, xenogears, vagrant story.
#29 Posted by Bubblepowa_x (15 posts) -
i suggest legend of legaia, i played this when i was like idk 7 and i did mainly random things back then lol XD but i remember it was a fantastic game, i recently downloaded for the psx emulator, and its just as fantastic as i remember it, and as far as i know it has the only unique way of using the directional keys to input commands to activate attacks in a turn based arena, check it out on youtube! it was a fantastic and exiting game.
