  1. Where are the shinning force games?
    Landstalker?
    Luna the silver star?
    And not one fire emble, you big spasmo.

    1. Never really played Landstalker and preferred Grandia to Lunar personally. And I’m not huge fan of the tactical RPGs because I don’t reaply have the patience to master them

    1. I was never a fan of Ocarina of Time personally and really liked the tone of Majoras Mask. And again with Breath of Fire 4 I thought it had a more compelling story. Totally just my opinion and can see why other people would go for other games in the series though

  2. I would definitely have Assassin’s Creed Origins on here as well as Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. (Wish I could add BotW but it’s technically sandbox/adventure due to the story being so loosely attached to the game play.) I also really enjoyed Fantasy Life and thought it was light but had a lot of good content.

    1. I never played Origins, though Odyssey might make a future list at this rate. Agreed on Link Between Worlds, it’s excellent but Majoras Mask just edges it for me personally

  3. I 100% recommend Origins. It has great story and a very interesting main plot that you’ll want to figure out. The map is also really beautiful and fun to explore. Also if you’re not a huge fan of the future stuff (like most of us I feel) it’s very limited. But apparently Odyssey is even more solely on the history which I’m excited for.
    With LBW basically being a re-imagining of Ocarina of Time, I feel like it goes hand in hand with the popular debate of you either love Majora’s Mask more or OoT. I love the feel to Majora’s Mask but I can’t lie and say that the time limits and constant restarting of days frustrated me. xD

    1. I’m sure I’ll get to Origins at some point, it’s not a priority right now. Totally understand the time limit point on Majoras Mask, it takes a why before you start to see any impact with your actions which is frustrating but it’s when that does start happening that it really gets good in my opinion

  4. I completely agree with Witcher, I’ve been playing games since the 70s and it felt like the game I’d always been waiting for. On some I might pick a different game in the series Suikoden II and III are both superior to the original for instance. Great choice on Grandia 2.
    There are some glaring omissions though. No Persona? Persona 5 is my favourite JRPG of all time and there hasn’t been a poor game in the series. No Dragon Quest? The new one is fantastic and you should give it a try if you haven’t. No Xenogears, Valkyrie Profile or Shadow Hearts?I realise the list is subjective but I wondered if you’d played any of those.

    1. Suikoden edged out 2 as it was one of the games I too a chance on when knowing nothing about it, I love 2 and we didn’t get 3 over in the UK until a few years back when it came out on PS3 to download. Persona is one I’ve been intrigued by but just nevet gotten round to and same with the others really though I will say I tried Dragon Quest years ago and it didn’t really appeal personally though totally appreciate there are people that love it
