The SNES is my fave console, it was the king of action/rpg's. Soulblazer needs to be played by everyone.

Despite the simplistic combat mechanics, I love Soulblazer. I love the whole Quintet trilogy. Well, at least the original Quintet trilogy. Never played Granstream Saga. It looks sort of lame. Love IoG despite the linearity. I consider Terranigma damn near flawless. My only issues there are that a few things were hard to figure out (JUMPING into the teleporters in Beruga's lab, getting some of the towns to grow), the Nirlake through Dragoon's Castle bit was sort of a really lame lull, and magic is useless (although the game is built in such a way that magic doesn't even need to exist, so it's not that big of a deal).

Granstream's probably the best game IN the series, funnily enough.

Lies, Soulblazer's better for all sorts of reasons, not the least of which is that Granstream Saga has a clunky combat system.  There was a certain charm to Granstream Saga though.

You're all fools. Actraiser is the best one of the lot. More games need to mix Action, RPG, and Sim management.

That said, IoG is an excellent runner up as far as my nostalgia goes. Terrengima would've been better if the town building came earlier and didn't force the plot to be both boring and annoying. After the security robot the game got a whole lot better. Granstream Saga was pretty lame combat but isn't a terrible game in of itself as far as I've gotten. Need to finish it though.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I played all three of those,actually.

Paladins Quest - I liked the tone of this game. It just felt "darker" than other jrpgs I was playing at the time. Great graphics and music. I didn't much like the battle system, especially the magic using hp business. Hard game. never finished it.

Y's III - Had fun with this one. Great tunes.

Lagoon - I remember kinda liking this. Good music. Tough.

Before I mention anything on the games themselves, keep in mind most SNES games have dead batteries at this point, so if the games didn't get them replaced already, you're going to have to solder new ones in.

This is strange, considering that, as of a few years ago, my NES game batteries all still worked.
