Ugh, didn't list the Mega Drive. Absolute fail.

Mega Drive:

Phantasy Star 2
Shining Force 2
Story of Thor (aka Beyond Oasis)


I can never understand how in this day and age, people still recommend Phantasy Star II.

It's got a few great moments, but most people end up quitting several times out of frustration for reasons.

Hey, are Lagrange Point, Just Breed, and Surging Aura in English yet? I couldn't resist asking.


Surging Aura has a French translation, but no English one yet AFAIK.


Awesome news, finally taking French in school paid off

Because people feel differently about games? I wouldn't recommend games I've seen you recommend, either. Do you think you're alone in thinking like that? You're not.

And how about posting your list instead of just commenting other posters'? I'm now interested in seeing what comes up in there.

I still don't get why everyone is having issues with Phantasy Star 2. As long as you use a map and spam the hell out of the Deban technique, you should be fine.

My ignore list is exclusive to trolls only. I should warn you though, it's crowded and the trolls imprisoned within are mean, anti-social and well... ignored.

Really? Because I consider Valkyria Chronicles to be better than any game you have listed here that I've played, and I've played just about everything on your list. Personally, I say that the Sega CD and and Gamecube can sod off. Hell, Nintendos consoles post SNES can sod off.


eh I didn't much care for it
