Terranigma, on the other hand...
...yup. Nintendo only has themselves to blame. It didn't come to the US because they were afraid of all that danged "controversial" content. Capitalism vs Communism? Questioning our religious beliefs? Creepy techno-antichrist from the Soviet Union? DUN DUN DAAA
Oooh yeah. I remember that now - that creepy scenario with the communist (?) dude who wanted to take over the world and kept zombies or something.
...when I think about it - that game got pretty messed up at times. Memorable for sure, at the same time, some of this was likely the stun factor. More than just the underworld, the rebuilding of earth.... but a lot of that game was just bizarre (and good!)
I hate saying it, but I loved emulator games, usually with RPGs I wanted to replay (the defense), but it sure made early grinding a helluva lot better. Speed up buttons were godly - and Chrono Cross became my best friend in New Game +.
