I always thought Dragon Warrior 7 deserved a much better translation than what it got.

I know it's a PC title, but I'd like to see a rerelease of Planescape: Torment so folks don't have to pay a hefty price for a copy.  It's kinda in that "best game that no one's played" category.

I think I payed all of three bucks for Torment like, a few years back*. I didn't play it much, although I'll admit that I'm not that fond of any of the Infinity engine games. Just a liiiittle bit too much a tendency to throw stuff at you at once.

While I'm a huge FF8 fan (favorite in the series), I'm not sure it NEEDS a remake as much as some of the others.

FFVIII's gameplay was pretty broken. I think adding in some sort of actual difficulty would be reason enough to remake it. Maybe make it so you can't just spam GF summons for... pretty much all of the game except for three or so boss fights?

Quote
Not because it's flawed (in fact, I think it's possibly the least flawed in the series tied with FF9),

Objectively speaking, FFVI was pretty flawed just in the sense that it had a lot of bugs.

* Maybe I should change this to pretty damn all of three bucks. That that this line makes any sense anymore because I just changed the rest of the post. Whoops.

Aryan Nation was the shittiest fucking Civ mod ever. I mean, if Kid Hitler was one of the worst beat 'em ups I've ever played, it's pure gold compared to Aryan Nation.

What didn't you like about Morrowind? Answering this will allow for more accurate recommendations to you.

My recommendation is Ultima 7, which is an older title but very good. http://exult.sourceforge.net/ <- Fanmade windows port but you need an original copy of the game to use it.

Ultima 6 is also great of course, although there's no Windows version so you'll need a dos emulator like DOS Box. Actually, most of the Western-style RPG... Well, here.

Windows:

Freeware:

Quest for Glory 2 VGA. Especially if you liked the day-to-day life thing Persona 3 did. http://www.agdinteractive.com/index2.html

Ultima 4 remake which is probably too archaic for what you're interested in but what the hell http://xu4.sourceforge.net/


Pay:

Wizardry 8, which should be cheap now.
The original Fallout.

DOS:

http://www.dosbox.com/ Requires dos emulator to use.
http://dfendreloaded.sourceforge.net/ Makes dos emulator easier to use

Freeware:

Betrayal at Krondor- First person, grid-based combat system, really good writing and indepth NPCs, fairly directed storyline but lots of sidequests, nice music... also freeware and not that hard to get running in DOSBox.

Avalon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGbV7yBXOI8 I played it a long time ago. No idea what it's like.

Pay:

Albion, which is actually german, but great, and quite similar to how JRPGs are structured.
Wasteland.
Quest for Glory
Ultima 6 and 7, as already mentioned.

Console:

Summoner 2

Yeah, I looked in a FAQ. I still don't remember ever going to the place where the thing is by....

"going to the place where the thing is by" wow. I have a paper to right tonight. This is going to be a really bad paper.
7640  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Would you name your kid Hitler? on: December 16, 2008, 11:01:52 PM
Kid Hitler was probably the worst beat 'em up I've ever played. I was expecting a lot more from IREM. I mean they made R-Type for god's sake.

DQ7 - In the process of getting Melvin.

Last night, I found this weird building in the middle of the pond with a bunch of lilypads behind it. I think. Can someone tell me if that's DQ7 or DQ4? I think it's 7. Where the hell is that? Help?

Oh yeah, Treasure of the Rudras is an awesome one too. The spell system is so innovative.

Dungeon Master actually did something pretty similar, but less expansive, a decade before :3

It feels like a NES RPG. It seems like there was a lot of transition problems from NES to SNES.

It's a Genesis game that predates the SNES which is why it probably doesn't feel like an SNES game.

That being said, have any of you ever played the Enix SNES game, Robotrek? Typical RPG fare in terms of structure, but you control a team of robots and can program their special moves by combining regular moves.

I was playing this last weekend. Can you have more than one of your own robots out in a battle at once? I never got far in the game because robots take forever to charge up between turns and I'm not that patient.

Also for a game targeted at children it's really not very intuitive :(((

Anyway, quasi-obscure SNES games I like? Erm... Quintet trilogy, early SMT games, Wizardry 5, romancing saga 3... Um, seriously, there' aren't that many SNES RPGs I'm that big on which is why your comment about the SNES era of RPGs being forgotten is weird since I'm really the only person here that doesn't get nostalgic about it.

(GB RPGs and SNES SHMUPs, on the other hand...)

It's awesome though.

The stupidest fucking part is that Bush is grinning the whole time and is like LOL EASY THERE BUUUUDDDY. I mean it's like, some guy tells you that they think you're worse than dirt by trying to wang you in the head with a shoe. And your response is "lolwhut?"

The President is 13 year old internet troll and he knows it.

Played SMT1 for awhile. I think I'll need to focus on just doing that, DQ4, and DQ7 for awhile (maybe some PS1 and Soulblazer too or something) so that I don't get complete confused about what's going on. Or I could take notes, I guess :P

I really like SMT1, don't get me wrong, but I'm really not of the mindset that just because the conversations are longer they're better than Nocturne's. Both games have a problem where half of the questions demons ask you are completely arbitrary, and that their responses to these questions are completely arbitrary. However, Nocturne's conversations only do this once, whereas SMT1's do this at every single stage.

DQ7: Simultaneously doing the Brugeo stuff and the present-day Hamelia stuff. I think the story's on the verge of getting very weird.

It takes a special kind of talent to do a remake for a system with massively increased color palette and still end up with a game that's less colorful than the original.

Didn't Sid Meier make that?
7649  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG's you'd like to see re-released on: December 15, 2008, 07:35:59 PM
Eternia's nice. That and Symphonia are the only tales games I've ever liked (though Phantasia and Abyss were the only other ones I played, and my unwillingness to play Abyss is partially because my PS2 is f'in up and making the battle have ENDLESS LOAD TIMES).
7650  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The "Throw a shoe at Bush" game. on: December 15, 2008, 07:25:25 PM
that man is my hero 2x extra fancy.

I mean, the original shoe thrower. the controls on that game kind of suck. And why aren't I doing the shoe throwing?

Honestly though, I thought that was a beautiful moment. Nothing that direct's happened in the States since the 1800s. He's like a goddamn entartist or something.
