Misadventures of Tron Bonne but it's not really a RPG, it just has RPG elements. Still one of the best games no one ever played. Of course, it was a spin-off to a spin-off and it's currently goes for a ridiculous sum of money. Glad I got in while the gettin' was good.

There is also Silent Bomber, which is a great mix of Metal Gear Solid and Bomberman but it's also not a RPG.

Bust a Groove and Tomba are both great too...but also not RPGs.

INCREDIBLE CRISIS...isn't a RPG but it is a lot of fun.

Basically, if there is a RPG on the PS1 that someone hasn't gushed about endlessly, it's probably only mediocre at best. There are a lot more games on the system that aren't RPGs that no one really knows about but are great games that hold up very well.

Even Koudelka is seeing a bit more infamy thanks to it's connection to the Shadow Hearts series. Also, it's a REALLY clunky game, so I wouldn't demand someone play it.


Just finished up Koudelka. MAN was that a clunker. The setting, story and characters were alright but man oh man was the gameplay utterly atrocious. Moving on to shadow hearts now, looks a lot better.

Then you, sir, have good taste...unless you really hated those games.


6/10 for Tron Bonne and 8/10 for Silent Bomber (check my contributor page if you want the juicy details)

6/10 for Tron Bonne isn't far off from what I'd give it, which is a 7...but I haven't played it in a long time.

Well, everyone knows Custer died at Little Bighorn. What this book presupposes is... maybe he didn't.

I really liked both Kartia and Jade Cocoon. The monster fusion in jade cocoon makes it at least a little different than pokemon. The story is actually kind of interesting if a bit under developed. Azure dreams was alright as well. Monster Seed was another of the monster breeder/hybrid rpg element games that never seemed to garner much attention at the time.
He's The Doctor. You got a problem with that?

I have some thoughts in mind for this topic. First, isn't it kind of cheating to use import titles? I mean you'd figure a good majority of them would not be known anyway.

Second, I wonder if some titles that we claim as "unknown" today were pretty much known back in the day. It's just we tend to forget about them after the fact.

Third, I think in some cases it might be more accurate to say barely talked about. There are quite a few games I know about, but for various reason have nothing to really say about them.
