Best SNES RPGs?

Post by Guitar_Geek » Wed Aug 13, 2014 7:55 pm

The SNES was the golden age of role-playing games, with classics being released every year. How would you rank them? Here's my list:

1. Chrono Trigger
2. FF6
3. Secret of Mana
4. Super Mario RPG
5. Earthbound

I have to admit I never could really get into the "JRPG" genre myself, but I do consider some of them very nice games, the SNES era in particular. But I'll go with the "untraditional" choice - A Link to the Past and Super Mario RPG. Earthbound seemed nice too and there was the interesting E.V.O.: Search for Eden. And of course there the classics of Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger.

I'll add Tales of Phantasia to the ones already mentioned. And also Front Mission is a good start to a great series!

Whats Terranigma like. I got it recently in a bundle and just put it to one side. I bought the bundle really chaep because it had Sunset riders in and terranigma was in with the rest.

Terranigma is a classic. It's very involving and has a great soundtrack and sfx. It has abit of a weird start but once the mode 7 bit is over it gets better and better. One of my favorite SNES games.
