I can't believe in almost 150 responses, no one has mentioned one of the greatest RPG's of all time, Konami's 'Destiny of an Emperor" Im 34 yeras old, so it may be a bit before your time, but it truly was and is an underrated classic. Even though it was a NES 8-bit, the story, graphics, and overall experience were better than anything I've seen since. Sometimes simpler is better! At any rate, the story is EPIC, taking place in China during the ruling dynasty period. You play as first generation warriors, then halfway through the game, you play as the sons of the original characters! And this was 1989! Meanwhile, the story explains everything clearly, and there's no convoluted storylines and nonsense. Just a great, great game. Oh, and by the way, I second Crystalis!

Wasn't a huge Metroid guy when I was a kid, but got this for the VC and it was very worth it. What a complete, engrossing, wonderful game. It has it all. A space RPG if you will. Wonderful.



jc1305us commented on Castlevania II: Simon's Quest:

Played this one back in the 80's and I must say I LOVED it! It was definitely something different, but I give Konami credit for trying something different even if it wasn't everyones cup of tea.

Glad to finally have the original I played many years ago as a kid! Ahh nostalgia...There are a couple of annoying features, such as when you defeat an enemy, and your next player is up to take a swing, he'll try and hit the same enemy you already killed instead of going to the next available enemy. Annoying to say the least. Also, there is a good amount of walking around fighting to gain experience and money ("Grinding" is what it's called?) It's still one of the best RPG's out there, as it was revolutionary for it's time, and certainly propelled the RPG format much further. A great game for five bucks.
