Skies of Arcadia

Outstanding traditional RPG. I suggest the Dreamcast version, which has better audio and VGA support. The Gamecube version has a few extras though and they say that it has slightly reduced random encounters, though I couldn’t tell much of a difference. It’s trivial anyway when your airship can fly above the the clouds and avoid monsters. The audio quality in the Dreamcast version makes it my preferred version since they substantially changed it to make it all fit on a single Gamecube disc.

Legend of Legia

Done in that poorly aged, yet nostalgic early ps1 polygon style, Legend of Legia was a ps1 exclusive title. An interesting combat style that combines experimentation with its inputs and specials, alongside a monster collecting summoning system. The series inspired a PS2 sequel. I have a strong longing for the original, and would love to see it get some love.

Radiant Historia

It’s an original DS game made by Atlus. The music is amazing and the game is fun to play. It’s like a modern day Chrono Trigger. Similar plot and similar old school graphics, but still quite a bit different in terms of gameplay & story.

Wild Arms 3

I just recently finished the game for the 1st time and it’s a whole lot better than I remember it as a kid. Wild Arms 20th Anniversary is December 20th and I think it would be cool to do in celebration of 20 years of Wild Arms. I am a bit sad though they just revealed today that Wild Arms is getting a mobile game in Japan. Congrats on the website! I’m so glad everything is going well for you! – Ignazio

Shadow Hearts

It’s the best RPG on the PS2 imo. I mean, you could play and review all 3 if you want but the original has the best atmosphere, the best music, the best version of Yuri….why wouldn’t you want to play & review this game? What could be more fun than watching a guy rip another guy’s eye out, beating demonic things as a demonic thing yourself, looking up some girl’s dress every time she uses her strongest skill & just overall playing an awesome game & RPG with an equally awesome ost? Highly recommend you play this and review it already if you haven’t…..I don’t think I found it on your channel at least.

Megaman Battle Network Series

GBA. A spinoff of megaman, with unique gird and “card” based combat, with interesting and evolving progress systems. The series spans 6 titles, with 3-6 having two versions each. The series also got its own sequel series on the DS, with three titles. The reddit community for the game is strong, and the titles aren’t hard to come by. The robot masters of Megaman are re-imagined, and the internet is the central theme.

Afraid to see, yet looking! Koudelka

Hi Derek,

I have played this game years and years ago and i still have vivid memories of it, similar to you i try to go through the games i pick up (FF series, Tales of Destiny, Legend Of Dragoon, Dark Cloud, Breath of Fire 3 and 4 and list goes on mostly PS) This game however is something the likes i have never seen again (maybe Parasite Eve a bit) so the name of the game I’m on about is: Koudelka
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koudelka

I was terififed to play it (i was probably 11-12) but it is something very unique.

Please let me know what you think of it 😉

Cheers,
eradication

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

A 2006 PS2 game with pretty god reviews, specially after the release of the first game.
The release of the game at the last moments of the PS2 might have been the reason it went unnoticed.
