Thanks for the list OP - I noted some of the games since I've never played or heard of them.

Games I recommend that many people may or may have not heard but are not from big known series like Final Fantasy...

-Illusion of Gaia
-Breath of Fire II
-Seiken Densetsu 3
-Paladin's Quest
-Lufia & the Fortress of Doom


The Sailor moon game in OP mentioned is also fantastic. Played it couple of years ago myself and finished it.

Robotrek from Enix (before the acquisition) is a favorite of mine.

*Unlocks & opens the black chest* Aye, you forgot this game.

Temco Secret of the Stars, came out in the mid 90s in the US, standard Dragon Quest clone but the story was good.

There´s not enough love for Terranigma and Secret of Evermore in this thread, Alex! :(

Anyway, I agree with you, the snes was (is!) the best console for rpg´s, I played lots of them back in the day and that´s the main reason I´m so much into rpg´s now, it is my favourite genre since I was a child.

Treasure Hunter G and Emerald Dragoon look hot! I didn´t know them, so I add them to my "must play" list, and Rudra no Hihou has nice enemies design from what I can see in that picture, so I may add it as well.

It saddens me how many games this console had compared to the wii u. Overall I like the wii u but I wish it had more rpg´s.

That's a very nice list!
Were all of these games localized for western audiences or are the pictures from fan translations?

Fan translations. All of these games are Japanese-only.

Terranigma. Maybe its very familiar. But I don't think it is

Agreed. Also Illusion of Gaia was really good as well (another action RPG).

ALSO: SNES was amazing for RPGs followed closely by PSX. Old Square has sorely been missed.

Was 7th Saga unknown? I remember palying that way back when and my boy Kamil.

I actually played Bahamut Lagoon a few months back on an emulator. I thought it was alright but stopped playing it after the first few chapters. Probably won't ever go back to it again.

However, I have never heard of Treasure of the Rudras and the plot seems very interesting. Might check that one out at a later time.

PSX and DS have better RPG libraries.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
