Looking back on my original post, I actually framed my history very poorly. I actually did own a Ps1 when it came out. And at the time that I owned it I ended up buying and playing all of the final fantasies when they where new, along with lunar 1 and 2. Lunar one remains one of my favorite games of all time. I actually recently replayed it, (though was unable to finish it, because like an idiot I was not fully prepared for the sky fortress and ran out of star lights and could not pass the first boss fight, and only had one save :(. Many years ago I tried starting Eternal Blue, but for whatever reason did not get very far and just stopped. I really would love to try that again.
I just find it funny that all the games I bought at the time (besides lunar 1 and 2) can be bought new for like 15 dollars, while everything I missed goes for about 100$.
Thank you guys for all the help! Your responses have been really helpful and interesting to read.
right now I am narrowing it down to a few of these.
Kings Field series- After reading up on all of them, I love the emphasis on on atmosphere, and the foreboding creepy tone.
Wild Arms 1 + 2- Just seems like classic rpg fun, and I love the western theme, plus Klyde's description made it sound right up my alley.
Suikoden 1 + 2- These are actually at the top of my list, I love the idea of the story continuing through all the games, and 2 just sounds so incredible. This just comes down to a question about how much I want to spend, I may just save up for awhile.
Breath of Fire 3 + 4- I actually remember really enjoying 1 and 2 on the snes, but never tried anything after, so I would not mind seeing how the series turned out.
And ya I am sadly a physical media guy. Not that I don't download games, but I try to do that only with games that are download only. Something about being able to hold it in my hand with the art work and everything, probably comes from my love of record collecting.
