This kind of piggybacks onto another thread. Square put out a  lot of great RPGs on PS1. But they weren’t the only ones. Once FF7 took off almost every company was bringing in the RPGs. What is your favorite?

Around the Network

LoD is the best game ever, so this is a really easy one.
Always love to be able to spread love for it tho, so thank you.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

My choices

2- Valkyrie Profile
3- Star Ocean 2nd Story

Suikoden II by a wide margin. Barely a competition.

Around the Network

Out of the 9 games listed, I've only beaten LoD.  However, Suikoden 1 is a masterpiece, so it gets my vote.

Reading the options for the poll, I realize how much of a Squaresoft fanboy I was back in those days. I haven't played any of the titles listed but played most of what Square released for the PS1.

Signature goes here!

1. The Legend of Dragoon
2. Grandia
3. Suikoden II

Digimon World, Digimon World 2, and Digimon World 3 were fantastic RPGs for the PS1 not made by Square.

Can I pick Breath of Fire IV instead of III? Also the Digimon World games were top tier... wasn't a huge fan of the second with the crawler and running out of fuel though, but the first and third I absolutely adored!
