I'm happy that Phantasia led to some great games in the Tales series later on, but the game itself is an incredibly shallow, tedious grind because they hadn't yet figured out how to make battles skill-based yet.

The game is more interesting than the game tbh
but the music and voice acting is based

Donkey Kong Country 2 is one of the greatest games ever made imo.

Fuck, yeah that is a really good one too. I used to love that game. I still play it on my emulator every now and then

They're all decent except maybe FE 1, 2, and 3 due to having rudimentary mechanics. If you want to play on emulator I recommend using cheats to speed up building up support points. Otherwise you'll be waiting for hundreds of turns to get your preferred romantic pairings.

Here's another good one.

 No.8578

Chrono Trigger and Earthbound were each hugely ahead of their time in their own way. JRPGs today can't match the amount of fun, depth and content Chrono brings in such a short amount of time (by the genre's standards), and games that break so radically, confidently and successfully with the genre's tropes like Earthbound are still hard as shit to come by today. As someone that wants to like turn-based RPGs more than I do, every one I've ever liked is to some degree influenced by Chrono or Earthbound.
Anything completely devoid of the things I love about these games has sort of coalesced into a tropey blur with too much padding and exposition.

Earthbound was a step back from Mother in removing the outside-battle sprint system and living in ancient times with its awful item system. Even Dragon Quest 3 figured out in 1988 how to alleviate frustrating item juggling problems with its party Bag solution.

Tbf, that wasn’t added until the re-release.

>Chrono Trigger
I wouldn't say it's ahead of its time in any respect, it's just polished beyond belief with a team of people who couldn't be touched. The battle system, the plot, the time traveling aspects, etc had been done in RPGs prior. In fact, there isn't much in CT that I would say future JRPGs took from.
>Earthbound
naaaaaaaaaahh
I hate on Earthbound more than I should, not because I actually dislike the game (I think it's a really fun time), but compared to how good some of the RPGs on that console were and how clunky the game was at times, I just can't say it's even in the top five of its genre. Also Mother 3 exists and while it's not fair to compare the two, one is a 8/10 game and one makes Chrono Trigger look like IdeaFactory shlock.
>>8558
FE7 isn't the best of the series, but it's such an easy game to sink 20+ hours into without realizing where the time gone. Speaking of which, pic related is what I'm going with. Fire Emblem isn't nearly as good as it is without what this game establishes. It's also one of the few games in the series that's meaningfully critical of the premise of the series (superpowered monarchs tear the countryside a new asshole, except this game points out that's not actually good)spurdoSpurdo

How do you feel about The Binding Blade? I found it at a cheap price in a second hand store.

Actual Best SNES RPG comin through.

It's hard for me to give it a fair shot considering how much of an improvement FE7 and FE8 are. There's just a lot of weak units (even for casual runs) and some truly awful maps. Chapter 14 of FE6 is my least section of gameplay in the entire series, and it looks even worse because FE8's main desert map is one of the coolest fights both from a map design and plot standpoint.spurdoSpurdo

>They're all decent
After Tellios the series became increasingly bad.

>Otherwise you'll be waiting for hundreds of turns to get your preferred romantic pairings.

Just play a regular galge/otome at this point. The dating sim aspects of FE are honestly terrible if you've ever played VNs worth their salt.
