If you play them out of order, the beginning of Lufia hits you in the nuts.

Just saying.

Everything is better filtered through Naked Lunch.

I need to play those. The "essential" 16-bit console RPGs I really need to play are:

Dragon Quest V
Dragon Quest VI
Earthbound
Lufia
Lufia II: Rise of The Sinistrals
Phantasy Star IV
The Seventh Saga
Shining Force
Shadowrun (GEN)
Shadowrun (SNES)

Interesting. My list is about 10 times longer than that. :lol:

Also, you should play Exile ASAP. It's like 5 hours long.

I suspect that what our lists of "essential" 16-bit JRPGs varies tremendously. :lol:

You really did! That's what, like, 700 hours?! Now I finally have the time to train for that marathon! Thanks, Exhuminator! You changed my life!

Exhuminator wrote:The problem I had was that Metroid II's areas' tilesets don't employ enough distinct variation to make navigation as intuitive as it should be. This is coupled with the fact the graphics are black and white, so you don't have color to enhance the tileset differentiation either. The whole world just looks like its made of millions of small piled stones everywhere, and it gets confusing fast.

I'm not saying this is a bad game. But you can damn sure tell its the one 2D Metroid that Yoshio Sakamoto did not direct when you play it.

This has been getting along pretty well. I've tried out the demo and I can't wait for the final release.

Project AM2R aims to recreate Metroid 2 with updated graphics and gameplay. Taking elements from newer Metroid titles: the fast paced gameplay of Metroid: Zero Mission, the atmosphere and solitude of Super Metroid, and adding new game mechanics, AM2R is one of the most ambitious Metroid fan games.

Sounds like a winner to me.

When you finally get around to them, play them out of order. Mechanics-wise this will be a bit difficult, as Lufia II benefits from things learned in Lufia. But plot-wise, trust me. Do NOT start Lufia until you beat Lufia II.
