From Software's lost masterpiece, Chromehounds. I wrote nearly a page on what made the game special but the crappy text editor here lost it all.

RE: What is/was your favourite online multiplayer game?
RE: Retro JRPGs question
Give the Sega RPG's some love. Phantasy Star IV, Lunar: Silver Star Story and Lunar: Eternal Blue are right up there with Chrono Trigger and FF6 in the 16-bit era. Shining Force 1 and 2 are excellent too. Skies is a must play, and I can't recommend Grandia 1 and 2 highly enough.
RE: Could you recommend a game with female MC?
The Longest Journey is considered one of the best adventure games of all time, and the main character is one of the best written female characters in games. The sequels, Dreamfall and Dreamfall: Chapters are very good as well.
Beyond Good and Evil is another all time great along with Life is Strange.
There's good variety on the RPG side, from the original Phantasy Star, the Atelier series, Valkyrie Profile, Parasite Eve, Rhapsody, Odin Sphere, and recently games like Tales of Berseria and Blue Reflection on PS4.
RE: Retro Gems
@SabotageTheTruth The entire Saturn library could be considered a forgotten relic, too many gems to list but like you said, very expensive. The PS1 has some more attainable forgotten RPGs like Thousand Arms, Hoshigami, Kartia, Koudelka, Front Mission 3, etc.
Shining Force is top tier if you like SRPG's. Shadowrun on the Genesis is interesting, open world action RPG, hasn't aged all that well but there's a lot there. Blood played through some of Phantasy Star the other day, probably the best 8-bit RPG.
If you've only played through Lunar on PSX it's worth playing on Sega CD for the differences and the better music, but again, expensive.
RE: Retro Gems
I've been doing something similar with old RPG's, right now I'm playing through the fan translated Shining Force 3 scenarios on the Sega Saturn. If RPG's are your thing, I recommend:
Lunar: The Silver Star
Lunar 2: Eternal Blue
Skies of Arcadia
Shining Force II
Phantasy Star IV
If you like cyberpunk adventure games, then Snatcher, Policenauts, Rise of the Dragon, and Blade Runner are all excellent.
RE: Star Citizen (PC)
@Stormcrownn I believe they've had multiple players on ships for some time, but I was very impressed by the seamless atmospheric entry and planetary landing in an arbitrary location. Their engine is in a reasonable state for a 2018 release.
The single player episodes will answer more questions when they start coming out in 2017. What remains to be seen is how much content the persistent universe will have when it finally launches, how much they'll show in the alpha/beta and how much they'll hold back.
