This one has been a long time coming but I can assure you it's been ready for more then 2 weeks. I had a bunch of pictures to supplement too but for some reason I am getting weird errors, either way links at the bottom to some video on youtube for those interested.

Well I could not have picked a better suited game to kick off this feature then Super Mario RPG: Legend of The seven Stars. This game is one of the best RPG's to ever grace the SNES and for good reason. First of all it was made by now Square Enix and Nintendo jointly with small (FF references) just like a modern day Kingdom Hearts, which is what made it such a great buy. Another thing is it's what paved the way to the likes of Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi games Saga games which have drawn out great praises from hardcore RPG fans and non RPG players alike.

Starting with the story this game probably has the biggest derailment from previous Mario games ever. Having Bowser and Peach as main characters with playable roles for the first time too was just too good to pass up especially because all were fighting side by side against a unified enemy.  Another cool thing was the dark storyline throughout this game which was pretty shocking for a Mario game I remember being scared in some segments when I first played it. One of my fondest memories from that game includes the opening scene where we discover Mario and Luigi are brothers and that he does all the cleaning and cooking.

The graphics in this game really pushed the system and seemed to be 3D at the time, cause the game was shown from a sort of third person view which was not just flat like predecessor and paper Mario games today. The sound was especially cool because it was the first major Mario game to shy away from the same old Mario music fan had gotten a little bore of by now.

My favorite part of this game has to be the difficulty in completing it, damn this thing was hard to finish I remember hors of leveling up before boss fights. The puzzles were also too hard at points and this all contributed to making this one of my top RPG games over the years.  Although this game did not do to well at its inception (mainly because they did not like the fact it was different from theclassic Mario games) today is a whole other story where most people regard it as a true classic and is regularly admitted to hall of fame lists.

Overall this gets the vote for best Mario world RPG in my book and for truly good reason. When this thing launches on the VC all of whom have missed on this one should buy it ASAP and they will only then appreciate the medium of games the VC will have. A launch like this will definitely come in a drought period on the Wii simply because it will downplay any other game launch especially at its cheaper price point. So bottom line this one is for any one who appreciates a new story and loves some RPG action- I give it my highest recommendation.

Ah I remember that game too, first RPG mario game and one of the best or Square-Enix's work ( or Square as it was called ). As much as this game is infact really good, it is not my 1st recommendation.

My best recommendations would either be The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past or The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. Both of those games really redefined the Action/Adventure genre with some RPG elements and dazzling puzzles. The best part of this is that they're both already available and many people enjoyed them and can enjoy them all over again. Plus new gamers would deffinitaly like them and these could get them to be Zelda fans and to get to know the most importants parts of the franchise's storyline.

As much as I agree with you on the fact that Super Mario RPG is really great, I still woudn't recommend it to everybody. Most people those days aren't very much into RPG, and even if this game features Mario .... those people might get a somewhat disapointment while playing this game. Super Mario RPG is nothing like the Paper Mario games; Super Mario RPG is too much like Final Fantasy ( I hate FF, please don't flame :( ), while Paper Mario sets a whole different style of Gameplay and storyline.

My point being that this game isn't fit for everybody. So I really woudn't recommend you to buy that game unless:
1. You love absolutely any kind of RPG
2. You're a die-hard Mario fan who doesn't care what this game is about but will buy it as long as Mario is in it.
3. You're rich
4. You're a VC freak
5. You've already played that game
6. You love a Final Fantasy-like gameplay

I honestly don't find it to be all that much like Final Fantasy, as far as RPG's go. Super Mario RPG, in my opinion, is one of the best RPG's ever made. It brought the Nintendo characters together to create a top-quality RPG that was original, vibrant, and interesting.

I do agree with you that it's top notch game, but fans of paper mario who didn't play super mario rpg before woudn't find the same kind of fun if they do play super mario rpg. Because they're 2 totally different style of games.

Heck, it's not even out yet. Maybe we should wait for Nintendo to release it before we start considering if he should buy it or not. :P

I still don't understand why that happens. Do you mean it happens when I type the words style or class?

Yeah, it has something to do with the site's html editor. I have no idea why it does it but it does. :?
