Going to skip the rest of my games and go to top 5. Starting off obscure. (I hope)

5: "You flaming idiots, take this!" First cutscene quote you might hear when starting this game.
4: Much like an anime, you are mysteriously transported into an unknown world and you have to solve their problems.
3: You can crit if you synchronize a strike and a button press perfectly.

Shadow of the Collossus?

I'm guessing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Dynasty Warriors 3 and Digimon World is correct. My next 2 are quite popular games, so I am going to have to really think of some hard hints xD.

The one and only.



#3 Freespace 2

Freespace 2 is a masterpiece, plain and simple. It's the best game in its genre, even 17 years after its original release in 1999. Not a single other game of its kind has ever featured such masterful mission structuring, where events often unfold in surprising, yet always logical ways. The gameplay has a lot of depth, while being simple enough to learn that everyone can easily play the game. The fact that there is a strong community still surrounding the game speaks volumes about its quality. Fans have kept Freespace 2 alive for nearly two decades, updating its graphics and even creating their own games based on its engine. Freespace 2 is such a great game in my opinion that it will likely never fall out of my top three. 

Hint for my #2: 

A JRPG that has attained cult status over the years since its release. Many fans, including me, still hope that someday it will get a sequel on a modern console. There's at least one person here who knows exactly what game I am talking about.
