Dang....not into Earthbound?! Not suprising...it's soo much different that a typical rpg, plus it's pretty easy. It took me about that long, but then I started liking it.

I'm rocking Shining Force 2 right now. Good game....but I think I like the story and music musch more in 1. The free roaming element is nice.

I am playing through Shining Force 2 as well. I just played through 1. The first one seemed to use the same couple of songs for all the battles. And the story was pretty simple. It has been so long since I have played through both of them, I really didn't really remember much in the way of story lines. I do agree the free roaming is great. I think this element sets it apart from most TRPGs, and makes it more enjoyable. The Shining series is great, especially the Shining Force titles.

Just got back into playing Lost Odyssey again, but I'm on Disc 4 now. Apparently I missed a ton of side-quests, as I'm only at about 27 hours or so.

[quote="flop5"]Now I'm playing Etrian Odyssey. Awesome game. Not as difficult as people say - yet. Best Rpg I've played since DQ8. Drawing my own maps is so satisfying :D .[/quote]

Right on! I'm playing through EO 2 right now. I never played the first one. In fact I've never played any Atlus games, and I'm loving it. My only experience with RPGs in the past were the Final Fantasy games, so it's like my eyes are finally being opened and I'm seeing the light. And the light is good.

And yes, looking at the bottom screen and seeing a fully-complete map of a floor that you drew yourself is extremely satisfying.

Edit: Figures... my first post and I screw up the quote tags... not sure what's wrong?

Finishing up Mass Effect, pretty much just for achievements as I've beaten it already. Also, getting close to being done with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night which I know isn't a pure rpg but has quite a lot of rpg elements.

I keep wanting to play Elder Scrolls:Oblivion, but every time I start playing it the game just doesn't manage to hook me. Mass Effect seems so much better.

I'm currently playing final fantasy IV for the DS. It's interesting to see something I played on the snes to be updated to 3d and added voice acting. I dunno feels different, not in a bad way just in a ehhh way.

Don't know if Startropics counts as a RPG... but that and Xenogears are what I am currently playing.

I have moved onto Rings of Power for the Genesis. Pretty good game once you learn the GUI.
