I absolutely loved Legend of Dragoon. I thought it was too harshly criticized by critics back in the day and I still think that. Luckily Neal liked it too haha.
I love Neal for that. If it's niche, chances are he's played it and loved it. Everyone needs that type of fan to counter the popular/overtalked about opinion. I count on Neal as a "hidden gem" finder at times.
I agree, I'm glad we have Neal for finding those unknown and unloved gems. :)
That said, I hated Legend of Dragoon, but at least I beat it. Hated the music (most of it), hated the combat, hated the characters, but I still beat it because IT WAS BIG FOUR DISC RPG ON PS1 HELL YEAH.
But still, I know lots of people did like it, so I'm glad Neal was able to show them some love.
Also, Jesters of the Moon is an awesome song. It works well both as a "quirky weirdos" song and a "these guys are creepy villains" song.
