I can't really argue with that, I'm just curious how they were different.
No royce or xenobia in the original,  and ghaleon was much more eviler.

But Xenobia was in the original (after all, someone had to impersonate Mia's mother); only Royce was added for SSSC and beyond. And yeah, more evil stuff was done like enslaving the residents of Burg to work at the Talon Mine (including Alex's parents).

They also substituted one kind of filler with another (i.e. hunting for worms for material for your airship versus having Kyle solo fight statue Hell Mel), and took out all the free plot Exp the game handed you in TSS.
Ok, my bad entirely. I meant Phacia. I know 2 of them never appeared in the original. I should have remembered it was Phacia simply because she survived the ending of SSC. Most of the other filler nonsense was just that, so it was easily swappable one way or the other.

But Ghaleon definitely was much more fucking eviler. Like you were always happy when you smacked him down and owned him-type evil. I never played TSS mostly cuz sega saturn was a pricey fucking shithole system, but I read up on it because I had ALWAYS wanted to play lunar 2 from the previews in my old "Game Players" magazine.

TASTY!

I remember liking Lunar Legend when I was younger but nowadays I look back on that and wtfffffffff. If Lunar's the Ys of games that aren't Ys, then Lunar Legend is Lagoon.

I do not remember Lunar Legend, but I have a hard time believing that it can be worse that Lunar Dragon Song. There was a plot point in that one about the main character no longer being able to do a head stand mid way through the game due to a curse! And that is really the only thing that I remember about the stupid game. >.>

It wasn't just a plot point but had an actual effect on game mechanics ala that curse in Beyond the Beyond. The big difference though is rather than take a crutch character and make him almost completely useless, it only takes a crutch character and diminishes his damage output by 2/3rds (though this still royally sucks since said character is the game's protagonist and the game's only useful combatant, which just serves to make things take 3 times as long as normal for a good while).

Lunar Legend meanwhile, was at most an entirely scaled back version of Lunar SSSC, since that's all they could fit on the GBA.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Here's the top 92 games from my collective findings.

See where your games rank.

If they made the top 92 that is....

There was over 440 RPGs submitted, but I only made this quiz to represent the ones that got at least 50 votes.

Let me know if you see anything egregiously wrong with the quiz.

Hope you enjoy it!

You got 68% correct
(Average Score: 28%)

I'm not good at guessing PC/western games.

Code: [Select]
Got stuff like Planescape Torment and Morrowind right, forgot all about Baldur's Gate ~_~
The only Japanese games I didn't get were:

Code: [Select]
-Nocturne (I kept typing Shin Megami Tensei first!)
-Skies of Arcadia (Thought this was one of the first games I entered, but I guess my brain farted)
-A Link to the Past (kinda assumed Zelda didn't count after Ocarina of Time not sticking)
-Symphony of the Night (Oh yeah, this one counts as a RPG, right?)
-Nier (Honestly did not expect that one)
-Mother 3 (I wasn't thinking that Japanese)
-Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (That one came out of nowhere)
-Mother 3 (Again, wasn't thinking too Japanese)
-Dark Souls (Keep forgetting is is sorta a RPG)

If you don't want to guess, then don't guess. Just start the quiz, then click 'I give up' on the right-hand side, and you'll get all the answers which make up the list. That's what I did.

Exactly.

The quiz has the list programmed in it. Just start it, wait a second and hit give up. The rest of the games will auto populate after the time runes out.

I'll fix the Nocturne entry. I've had to edit this game a bit anyways.

And...if anyone is curious I lumped all pokemon games together. It's not perfect, but when a lot of people say "the pokemon series" as one of their top 10...

It is what it is.

Glad you all helped.

FYI, the staff posted our own top 5 lists today.  I swear, we started working on this about a week before this thread started. But we didn't know when we'd have a good slot in the schedule to post it, so we didn't want to say anything. :)
