Watched Loving Juliet two nights ago. A film from Hong Kong.

Movie was pretty decent, 1 hour and 30 mins. It was realistic (meaning the cast were not uber hot/plain hot unlike in most Hollywood movies, they were ordinary looking people). It's a depressing/somewhat cheesy movie.

9) Radiata Stories (being able to kick the NPCs is hilarious)

Oh yeah lol and I also found the
supposed rape scene/forced strip scene of one of the female enemies (she thought they were gonna "do" something to her)

I remember the "scientific" justification in Parasite Eve being utterly laughable and ridiculous.

By Square's standards, though, it was pretty good :p

I liked PE's battle system. It was reasonably fast, more or less involved, and kind of like VS' only I actually understood what was going on.

I found the concept cool though :P

People mutating, animals mutating, genetics. That game got me into science. lol

Here are more of my faves:

Alundra - Not exactly an RPG but it's awesome, kinda similar to Zelda but still fun, and the bosses look cool. And the entering dreams concept and puzzles (despite that they were frustrating) were awesome

Lunar 1 (have barely played Lunar 2 :() - Simple game yet awesome, i don't know why but it was great.

FFIX - One my favorite FF's, next to 10. I kinda felt the "Final Fantasy" theme in this game (i heard this was the maker's favorite FF). Awesome music, awesome towns and really cute chars.

FFVII - I like it but not an extreme fan of it (I kinda think the FFVII original is the best rather than its sequels... then again, i've barely played the sequels).

Secret of Evermore - I enjoyed the alchemy concept and the concept wherein you travel into different places having different era-like environments.

Illusion of Gaia - Great game even though it seemed somewhat short. I was fascinated by the
concept of the ancient wonders such as Mu, Nazca Plains, Tower of Babel, etc.

FFVI - It was big game alright, so many secrets, so much drama, and two worlds. Great story.

Breath of Fire I - Simple RPG, awesome game.

Suikoden 1 - This RPG got me hooked into the entire Suikoden series, the original 108 stars of destiny concept, having your own castle, etc.

Grandia II (not sure) - I really enjoyed it and it was the only RPG that I've finished in the Dreamcast, I enjoyed fighting the
body parts

Wild Arms - The story, the ability to summon different golems, the length of the game (especially the secrets).

Chrono Cross - Great story and awesome gameplay. Chrono Series rock!

Xenogears - Great story, music, and places (like Shevat, i <3 Shevat).

I'll add some more later, here are my first 5 :P Just try not to bash other people's favorite RPGs haha

Suikoden 2:
Simple game play, able to collect multiple characters, semi-customizable characters, the awesome piano intro song, story about two great friends (SPOILER: and one of the friends was a traitor and both lead opposing forces), and the game feel (traditional-like).

Cute gameplay, simple story but strangely enticing, very original (kids fighting aliens in a modern world using bats and frying pans and shopping for equipment and stuff at malls), and funny.

Persona 4:
One of the best storylines that I've heard, great characters and all of them had depth, unique gameplay, J-pop like soundtrack and they were really catchy, hilarious, and tackled multiple personal teenage issues.

Chrono Trigger:
Originality, the gameplay and ability to combine certain techniques with other people's techniques, soundtrack, the story about time traveling and ability to change events in the past.

Game feel and the environments and places of the game(Besaid Island), story, super cool aeons, music which range from relaxing to emotional, and the unique gameplay and sphere grid.
