IMO, this was the best game for SNES.  I must have played this game for half of my childhood.

I think it was most definately on the top 5. I spent a lot more time playing yoshi's island and f-zero, though (and still do ;D)

Bahamut Lagoon is one of my fave SNES RPGs, not a great fan of Mario RPG but some of the later ones like it like Paper Mario are ok.

Mario RPG is definetely up there with FF3 and Chrono Trigger. The battle system was lots of fun. Infinite items if you pwn enough ;D

FF3 and Chrono Trigger.
I suppose it means something that I didn't like either one of those.

Front Mission > this
Tales of Phantasia > Seiken Densetsu III > that

But yeah, SMRPG was alright, but a bit too linear.

Beneath us, at an immense distance, was the sun, black but shining.

Seiken Densetsu III was lame, I thought. And Tales of Phantasia was just boring; the only thing I really liked about it was the palette. Very earthy and different.

Shin Megami Tensei/II are the best SNES RPGs imo :P

Not played Shin Megami Tensei as I'd always thought it was a recent franchise and a PS2-exclusive. Learn something new every day, I guess.

Two kind-of-RPGs on the snes that were also great: Illusion of Gaia and Terranigma.

Terranigma is awesome, although I got stupid-stuck halfway through and had to start again because I forgot where I was going. I've got Illlusion of Gaia but I'm only a couple hours in. I think I'll go find SMT II and give it a whirl, I still feel pretty sad that I traded III in, and that they never bought out Digital Devil Saga like they promised :(

Shin Megami Tensei is a subset of the larger Megami Tensei franchise, which started on the NES and is one of the biggest RPG franchises in Japan. It's basically Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Megami Tensei (which has a huge amount of games in it, most of which I've at least played).

And I liked SoulBlazer and Terranigma more than Illusion of Gaia.

Terranigma

Thanks for noticing the BEST rpg ever imo, i was going to make a thread about it, seeing nobody knows it, because its not really that famous.

Anyway, MAN i played this game like for AGES !!

Took me a long fucking time before i figured out how to open the door... (throw a pot at it)

Then it went pretty quick from there, untill with the gobi desert, that sucked.

And the zombie village sucked as well..

And japan sucked too..

And the princess castle sucked even more !!

Anyway, its a really gotdamn hard game but its so much fun..

Too bad there aren't too many items..

It was quite a fun RPG but I don't think it ranks up there with Chrono Trigger. That is by far my favourite game for SNES ever and I even have the original cartridge in my house right now but sadly I don't own it.
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?

It's hard to compare more traditional RPGs like Chrono Trigger with games like Terranigma. They are both awesome, but it's really apples and oranges.

Terranigma does own all though. Soulblazer was a lot of fun back in the day too... But Illusion of Gaia, meh. It's a good game, but compared to the others in the series, it's rather crappy.
