Those would be my two choices. Brad will attack me for this, but Legend of Dragoon is no classic. The game was pedestrianly received during its hey day, and it still boggles my mind that it gained a loud cult following in the following decades lol
Do you mean one of the best selling RPGs from that system that still has a following until now is not a classic because some reviewers didn't like it not being Final Fantasy?
It holds a 74 Metacritic rating. It wasn't just some reviewers, the game was really average. I myself rated the game in the 7s in this site. It sold well, over a million units, because RPGs in general sold well in that era, and there was a massive marketing campaign behind it. A list of RPGs that sold better or comparable units (over a million):
Final Fantasy Tactics
Dragon Quest/Warrior VII
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Tales of Destiny
Arc the Lad,
Star Ocean 2
Arc the Lad 2
It was the golden era of the genre, it wasn't uncommon for JRPGs to sell well. Most complaints weren't about LoD not being FF. Most complaints are about its pedestrian story, and the fact that the game actually tries to be like FF. It was the only 4 disc game that I can recall, that if I wanted to go back to a certain town I had to swap discs, the world map was uninspiring (most games allowed for free roaming over a 3-D world map and LoD didn't), and while did enjoy the combat I could say the same for a dozen other JRPGS that I played during that time.
It has built a cult following though, and it is probably more popular now than it was back when it was released which I guess is impressive, but it really deserved that 7ish score especially when compared to other RPGs of the time.
