Cool, I must of overlooked it and I tried to backtrack to see if it was but couldn't find it since the list jumps around alphabets. So you pretty much have it all here sweet and thanks for the great list!


Yeah the list jumps around a bit because I wanted to keep sequels together. Therefore, Illusion of Gaia is listed after Soul Blazer (and Terranigma is listed after Illusion of Gaia), Dragon View is listed after Drakkhen, Lord Monarch is listed after Legend of Heroes I & II, Mystic Ark is listed after The 7th Saga, Radical Dreamers is listed after Chrono Trigger, the Megami Tensei games are all clumped together, and so on....

Damn Japanese developers and their confusing game titles. :lol:

I am looking for one SNES rpg. I just randomly found it on e-bay few month ago and now i can't remeber the name. (And i want hear the music so badly).

So the game was very Shin Megami ask.
I definitely remember postapo settings and first person view, maybe even that internet-demon thing. I wasn't translated and it isn't from MegaTen series.

Any ideas? Thanks
Sorry for my engrish :)

Hey Bone, how do you feel about the games that are RPG-esque, but not actually RPGs? Like Goof Troop, Incantation, etc. You have Equinox, King Arthur and the Knights of Justice, and Big Sky Trooper in your list(and Violinist of Hameln), hence why I figured I'd ask. We were discussing cheap SNES RPGs in a different thread, and it got pointed out that Equinox isn't a "real" RPG.

The "genre" for Equinox, King Arthur, Big Sky Trooper, and a few others (such as ActRaiser 2) is listed as "action-adventure".

Yeah, which is why I was wondering why Goof Troop and Incantation were left out, since I've seen them both describe as RPGs.

Got it. (Seriously, Bone, WTF?!) :lol:

(That said, neither Goof Troop nor Incantation even remotely resemble RPGs, and since they do not relate to or otherwise influence the RPG genre, I can see why he would not include them.)

Having beaten Young Merlin, it doesn't either. But that's not what matters.

What matters is, we find out from the guy who's probably the best resource on the SFC/SNES RPG library to give us his thoughts. At least partly because I'm curious, and partly because I'm trying to figure out how much of the NTSC-U SNES library I've beaten and how much I have not.

I simply decided to cast a wide net when making the list. There are some decidedly "not RPGs" that I included because they play very similar to RPGs and/or they would be RPGs if they included a leveling system and/or they were influential to the genre.

To put it another way, anything that would have been profiled in Nintendo Power's "Epic Center" was included, with the exception of pure strategy and simulation games that contain no RPG elements.

Lastly, the definition of console RPG has certainly narrowed over the years. During the era when these games were released it wasn't uncommon for an Equinox or Young Merlin or any other fantasy action-adventure game to be labeled as an "RPG" by several publications. So one could argue I was adhering to the loose standard that was in place during the 1990s.

As for Goof Troop and Incantation, I've never played either but they didn't look RPG-ish enough when I did research. Gotta draw the line somewhere. :lol:
