Praised games in my collection.

by on
Ok, here is a list of games in my collection that I have had a special 'soft spot' for, and have been favorites of mine since I played them. I would give them an unbiased review in those days' standards as I would any other game. This is just what I have in my collection. Legend of Legaia PSX - It was one of my favorite games of all time, and probably my first ever rented playstation game. It is a fun RPG from back in those days, the combat system was unique, and I have not ever found a game like it, even as Legaia 2: Duel Saga came into play. Final Fantasy IX PSX - It was one of the last true Final Fantasy games of its depth, it allowed you to explore the world in airships and on chocobos, the main source of traveling. It was a vast world, you could let your imagination run free if it was a new game being developed by today's standards. Great story, not all too dramatic, amazing visuals, and battles with cut-scenes even themselves out so you actually get a sense of excitement. But those FF days have long since passed... Wild Arms 3 PS2 - A great game in itself, a western-style RPG, built to the brim with guns and a nice, open world. You can ride horseback, on foot, or take mechanical vehicles that travel both on land or sea. The music score, along with the story and the fact that it had more gameplay by far, than cut-scenes. Thousand Arms PSX - First game I had seen where it matters who you praise and who you scold. A simi-dating sim RPG where you give gifts to girls in hopes you get to marry at least one. Nicely done, around 25-40 hours of gameplay, and with some difficult boss battles, it actually seems to focus loosely on dating until at least halfway through. I beat it, but I feel like I can beat it again. Star Ocean: Till the End of Time PS2 -Huge display of weapons, vast majority of items, and seems like almost everything in that game is customizable. Good story, lengthy start, but you will start to enjoy it more as time rolls on. It is a bit complicated at times with how you synthesis things, but that is how it set itself aside from most RPGs. Suikoden series The one thing that makes the Suikoden series unique, are the amount of people you actually find and can have as allies, able to join your party when you need them. There were over 200 different allies you could play (if I remember correctly), and that number only grew with the passing of each Suikoden game. Some underdog series have been cut off because of developing costs, and the fact that they might not be so well-received in the US. -Valkyrie Profile was close to getting disconnected, but it still lives on in Sony fanboys. -Suikoden has seemingly moved on to portable devices, Suikoden Tierkreis for Nintendo DS and Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki (Japan) for PSP. -Wild Arms XF for the PSP So far my favorite new age RPG has been White Knight Chronicles, as it is more like what the Final Fantasy series was back in the day than it is now. It has this huge world to explore almost from the start, nice battles mixed with only a taste of cut-scenes, but the biggest twist is the huge enemies you can face, on down to a tiny shrub. You also have the online experience, where you get some land, can customize it, and even invite people over to buy stuff you sell within this little bit of land you get. I forgot the full details, but you will have to check it out for yourselves! It is a must buy for any PS3 gamer!! As long as you love RPGs, there is no reason not to get this game.
