Who likes those old school RPGs like Crono Trigger, Secret of Mana/Evermore, and Mario RPG? I loved all those games they were great! Don't you all think so too?

Some of them are great, but some of them are simply awful. ^^ Secret of Mana will always be one of my favorite games. It was so fun, although you really had to play with one or two other people to get the full experience. I wasted so much time leveling to 99, maxing out my magic and weapon levels. hehe... but of the other three games you listed, I never played Mario RPG, and hated the other two. Yes, I'm one of the five people in the entire world who didn't like Chrono Trigger. I have various reasons, but essentially I just couldn't stand the main characters.

Mario RPG was pretty good. You should try it sometime. Everyone entitled to their own opinion. It's okay that you didnt' like Crono Trigger. I can still be your friend. :P Sercret of Mana was a great game though. Your right it was better played with AT LEAST one other person.

haha I love all of those games!!! <owns Chrono Trigger for PS after playing it at my cousin's house for the first time, my fave. game!! :thumbsup: > I am currently still working on Secret of Mana / Evermore. ( I personally like Secret of Mana better ^__^) It's so fun whapping those evil thingies :D ahaha... SNES was / is so cool....

Heh, Minki... I've met people who are *very* defensive about Chrono Trigger. I can't help the fact that I don't like it, and no amount of persuasion will ever convince me that it's a good game. ^^ I just don't want to cause trouble with my opinion.

From that same time frame, there were other excellent games, like Phantasy Star, Shining Force, Final Fantasy 4 & 6, Lunar... Then, some mediocre games like Lufia and Paladin's Quest. And some awful games like Tecmo's Secret of the Stars, 7th Saga, Earthbound, Breath of Fire, Dragon Warrior... Thinking of all these games is great for nostalgia, though. The SNES was the most amazing system ever. It had Super Mario Kart, arguably one of the best games ever (in my opinion, at least XD). And now, you can relive all the magic on the GBA! Yay!

And I'd just like to mention that the #1 awesome weapon of Secret of Mana is totally the whip. :P It's such an underappreciated weapon and yet it's SO useful, if people would only give it a chance.

Yeah Mana was better then Evermore. My favorite spell in Mana is the level 8 salamando fire ball. It was kool. It's these two dragons sometimes more. That Come out instead of just a fireball. It's awesome.

I think I'm gunna cry now. I liked Earthbound, and BOF. But like I said earlier everyones entitled to their own opinion. Yours however is tweaked. No I'm just kidding. At least you are honest. The wrost thing someone can do in my opinion is pretend to like something they don't. Know what I mean? Why pretend you like a game if you don't? It's just a game right? Oh well peopls are weird.

hmm, I enjoyed the BOF series and 7th saga quite a bit. Nobody mentioned one of my favorite series- The Suikoden series. Those games are all cool. I can't wait for Suikoden 3. Legend of Mana is fun- if you liked that one you definently have to play Seiken Densetsu 3 (Legend of Mana 2- never released in America, but hey that is what emulators are for). I also like Robotrek for the SNES. That is a fun game. Typical RPG for kids- kid finds out about alien invasion from mystic, decide to go defeat it. It was quite easy, but still fun. Also for those of you who like strategy RPGs, I highly suggest Hoshigami. Hardest one I have ever played, creative magi system, interesting ability system. typical characters/story. Still it is fun.

Oh! I know / play ...umm half of those games! ( Final fantasy 4, 6, Lufia 2, Secret of the Stars, Earthbound, BoF & 2) Super Mario Kart!!!! I loved that game! darn brother....taking advantage of the fact I didn't know how to play back then... >.< It's ok that you don't like Chrono Trigger; everyone has their opinions. (not getting defensive, ne?)

I like D&D also ^^. On a different note, have you ever heard of Big Eyes, Small Mouth? It's pretty good IMHO. It has an easy to use Mecha making system, character generator etc. You should give it a try sometime. The maker is Guardians of Order. You should be able to find it at Gameboard or a store like it.

tydawgsd:

I just started the Suikoden series it pretty kool. I only have one though. I need two, and now three.


KaineMaxwell:

Which ones you like the most talk more give us more to say. :P


Psyth3:

D&D had only one problem when I was playing it. It seemed like oyu spent more time rolling the stupid dice then you did actually seeing what kind of story there was going on. It got kind of annoying.


Chimera_Zero:

What's that? Big eyes small mouth? Hmm. I'll have to go look for that if you say it's good. Might as well not like I have anything to do.

I really *liked* Breath of Fire IV, but haven't played any of the others so I can't say what I completey think of it on a whole. But I've heard there'll be another coming out on ps2?

I didn't like Mana at all, but yes, Mario and the SNES were awesome.

Oh I don't play now ^^v This was pre-console era. After I had the option to have pretty visuals with my RPG's D&D hit the road :D

I guess barring pen and paper, I'll go with Xenogears, Chrono Cross, and Final Fantasy 7

Seiken Densetsu 3! Awesome and fun! I only wish they'd translated it for a domestic release. ^_^

I'm starting to miss pen-and-paper RPGs though. I havn't played one of those in like 3 years. Maybe I should make my own. Heck I think I'll do that. Give ideas if you want. (Use PM's maybe I'll open a thred later.) Look what you did psyth3. :P

Hmmm, never much got into computer/console RPGs, except maybe the Ultima series and Bards Tale.

Was much more into paper based ones such as AD&D, Middle Earth, Shadowrun, and Earthdawn. Sigh, no one around here plays 'em anymore. :P

Edit - Doh! Can't forget the various Warhammer series as well. :)

Aoshi Shinomori:

Secret of Mana 2 was Secret of evermore wasn't it? Or was it Radical dreamers? No that was Crono Triggers sequel. Nevermind that. Hmm. I'ma go see if I'm right or what.

Edit: *Read's the post from Celine he missed before.* Heh... heh... Oops... *Ducks down in a corner.*

Help me make one! We can find a way to make it work online! Pen-and-paper needs to make a come back. Hehe.

Evinrude
11-19-2002, 05:58 PM
Help me make one!

Heh! I'm afraid I've packed all my rule books in preperation for moving in January. Otherwise, I'd LOVE to. :) I haven't gotten a good game together in years. All the people I used to game with have moved.

Minki-The-Monki
11-19-2002, 06:03 PM
Well what about when your done? o.O Help meh then. Hehe. :P Not like I'm going to finish it THAT fast. Lol. I mean I have free time, but not that much. Plus I'm the kind of person that would make little campeigns (SP?) for it. All that stuff. I don't like leaving a job undone like that.

Evinrude
11-19-2002, 06:08 PM
Well what about when your done?

Certainly! If you don't mind waiting until January, I will provide whatever help you need. Sounds like fun! :) Just gotta get my tush moved from Alaska to Idaho first.

Minki-The-Monki
11-19-2002, 06:14 PM
Yay! One partner. Just have to wait a while. That's okay though. You have a bunch of different game's rule books huh. *Reads the list.* That's probably a good thing to do if your gunna make your own. I should go buy a few more.

Wow that's a nice move there. Idaho...I think I've been there. Never Alaska though. Oh well. When your done send me some potatoes!

Defensive Chrono Trigger fans are scary, Celine! I totally know what you're talking about, I have friends like that. x_x; They yell at me about it, but dude.. I just got /bored/ with CT... the battle system was nifty, as were some other elements, and Flea.. XD but.. I just really didn't feel like finishing it out. I just didn't care about the characters enough, or the plot or anything.

I love older RPGs... Phantasy Staaaaaaaarrrr! ...IV. ^_^

11-20-2002, 04:26 PM
