    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Metal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2

    I put Arc the Lad 2 here really for some selfish reasons. It's my favorite game and I feel that it doesn't get the love it deserves, but really theres some real great story, battle systems, and world exploration in this game. The characters are meaningful and important, the sprite work is beautiful, and damn this game is filled with some great music.

    Also there are some similar things in this game that are in FF7 except this game came out first soo...



  • @FF7Cloud The only reason I didn't go for Spyro is because I love all three of the originals equally. Same with the Crash games. Too hard to choose. I probably would go with Ripto's Rage and Warped though. I hope someone adds CTR to the list. Honestly enjoyed that more than Mario Kart.



  • @Light yea there all really close i played ripto first so it more nostalgic for me as for the crash series i think crash 2 is the best one, and ctr is awesome right up there with mario cart 64 maybe even better

    It's my personal favorite RPG on this system. It had a fun combat system and it had mechs! The soundtrack was amazing and I liked the characters.

    Gah. There's 2 FF on the list already, I would have voted Tactics if not.
    Instead, I'm seeing a lack of racing and fighting games on that list, so I'm gonna go with ...

    11.Gran Turismo 2

    Someone beat me to Ripto's Rage lol.

    Has character customization, a good create a level, tons of secret areas and cheats. Just an overall great game. Anytime I had out of town family that was into games, this was one of the two I'd bug them to play with me lol.

    I didn't feel like giving my reasons for why I find this game great, so I went back in time and got Ian and Ben to talk about it.

  • To everybody who posts a second game, Thank you! From this point forward, I MUST remember to include a time lapse rule! As always, thanks for playing! Because of stagnation and multiple people have at least two, I will add one:

    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2
    10. Xenogears
    11. Gran Turismo 2
    12. Silent Hill
    13. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    14. Kula World
    15. Crash Bandicoot
    16. The Legend of Dragoon
    17. Rival Schools: United By Fate
    18. Parasite Eve
    19. Suikoden II
    20. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

    I've seen a lot of calls for CTR, and that would have been a great addition, but Warped is the best Crash game IMO through level design and story arc. Also several of my favorites are already here so I believed this addition would be better over a few others I have.

    Please remember to let me know IF you want this to turn into a Kill Your Babies!. Otherwise I really appreciate how everybody has taken to this. It really makes being here so much fun!



  • @Brannox The only way we can be gods of our own universes is if we have the power to create and destroy. Although this one will hurt my heart much more than the N64 one when the killing starts happening.



  • @SabotageTheTruth You and me both friend. ;-)
