Recently I've been talking about retro Sega exclusives. Stuff like Panzer Dragoon, Lunar, Shining Force and Skies of Arcadia. I started playing Lunar, an originally Sega CD/Saturn franchise, and I'm loving it. Now I'm starting to appreciate Sega exclusives (specifically RPG's) a lot more.
I also respect Sega a lot now because several of their best games, are actually the best among the best. Soul Calibur, a Dreamcast exclusive fighter, is often regarded the best fighter. Shining Force was developed by Camalot, the makers of Golden Sun (my favorite RPG series, and favorite handheld game). Plus people who have played Panzer Dragoon Saga and Skies of Arcadia often put it at the top of their favorite games list. Plus newer games like Valkyria Chronicles are hailed as not only one of the best console JRPG's this gen, it's one of PS3's best exclusives. They also were the first to publish Platinum Studio's games, and their games, while selling poorly, are repeatedly getting scores in the 9/10 range (Vanquish, Bayonetta, MGR, etc)
So now I'm begining to understand why some people like Sega over Nintendo and Sony. My question is, what do you guys play now? Now that the Sega has stopped making consoles, these Sega like games are appearing everywhere. XB1 got a Panzer Dragoon exclusive, Soul Calibur went multi-platform, Shining Force devs started making Golden Sun and Mario Golf, and I'm not sure what happened to the guys behind Lunar.
P.S. Can you recommend me some good Sega titles? I'm big on JRPG's and I'm pretty sure I got everything good on Saturn/Genesis/CD/Dreamcast covered, but just in case.
