    Perhaps a silly question but:

    Is there any way to get a NTSC game to play on a PAL machine (PS2) that way I could buy some of these RPGs that haven't been released here (UK) from places like Ebay and so on?

    Uh, yeah. There have been ways to do that since the SNES era. On the PS2, all you have to do is buy a chip and install it into your ps2 (preferrably, you'd let some company do this, since it's very difficult).

    It voids the warranty, but it's not illegal.

    EDIT: Don't buy some cheap chip. If you're gonna do this, you want your ps2 to work afterwards. Preferrably, buy one of the chips from the "Messiah" family.



    Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate.

    Thanks, do you know if companies like "Game" do it, or is it some kind of hardware specialist I'd need to see?

    Hmm...I borrowed .Hack volume one from a friend and I really thought it was boring - long winding dungeons that are basicallyt he same thing over and over and over, and the fighting was a bit choppy and slow at times.

    Each to ones own and all that, though...

    Top 3? It's bloody obvious.

    Tales of Phantasia

    Terranigma

    Seiken Densetsu 3

    Now if I but knew which RPGs have been released (and many, translated to English) to modern console systems (PSX and above) and which will be released soon I'll go on a buying spree to pick up some of these good RPGs in native English on systems that are still in stores. Anyone know? Thanks!

    1.Disgaea
    2.Final Fantasy Tactics
    3.FF6
    Pretty odd, eh? Disgaea has a goofy plotline, and FFT is all serious with the big complex plot. What do the 2 have in common? NO ONE HAS A NOSE! If you ain't noticed, me likes SRPGs

    Panzer Dragoon Saga : Perfect length, great story, and cool combat system.

    morrowind: Looks great, lots to do, and the construction tools make the possibilities endless.

    Disgaea: Just a whole lot of fun.

    Suikoden-I like the simplicity of the story line, and the shortness of it all. It had some really great characters and moments.

    Suikoden II-Same as the first, except it was longer and had more to the story.

    Grandia II-Just loved it.

    Narrowing down the top 3 is really hard for me, I keep switching my answers so I'll just write down the answers I have right at this moment:

    1. Lunar: SSS
    I love Lunar because of it's excellent characters and it's great writing (in the WD tranlsation at least). The villains are really interesting, and the music is very memorable. I also enjoy the battle system a lot, as it's one of the few console style RPGs I've played that takes distance into account.

    2. Panzer Dragoon Saga
    I love this game because the battle system was a blast as well as being very unique. It's visual design was so amazing that I still consider it one of the best looking games I've seen, even though it used the Saturn's less-than-stellar 3D. I also really enjoyed the plot, although much of it wasn't told very well.

    3. Xenogears
    Not much to say here that other people haven't, it was just overall great with an interesting plot, fun battle systems, music I still listen to weekly, and cool visual design.

    In no particular order:

    Shadow Hearts: Covenant: I was pleasantly suprised with this game. It has nice chant/techno/classical music, a dark storyline which still manages to squeese in a good amount of jokes, nice graphics (a plus more than a necessity) and a main character who has the guts to say "bite me" to an omnipitent demon god. The battle system is turn-based but keeps you on your toes with the need for timing on the judgement ring. Add to that the fact that a bulk of the people who worked on FFVI worked on this one. This is a rare gem in a time of failed FF clones.

    Xenogears: Is there a need? I think enough people have advocated their case for this game for me to not need to write a paragraph about it. I'll just say it has one of the best plots ever and is absolutely legendary in this respect.

    Lunar: SSSC : what it lacks in actual overall plot, it more than makes up for it in execution. Definently a classic. I have yet to play eternal blue, though so my oppinion may change later.
  • edited October 2004
    YES, Lunar, Lunar, Lunar. I've played through all of the games at least 26 times, and I've been waiting for a squel for about half the time I've been alive. I WANT LUNAR 3!!!!!

    I wish I could have added in FFVII. It holds a special place in my heart. I wouldn't want to say it was an afterthought, but I had to fit in my others.

    Tales of Symphonia:

    Why: It's a story that made you think and feel, the cell shading felt right at home as opposed to cell shading that appears in games like Wind Wanker.

    Final Fantasy IV and VII:

    Why: Final Fantasy VII and IV did something that very few games can and do (do). These games actually made you feel for your characters, FYI, when ""<span class="spoiler">Sephiroth killed Aeris i'm man enough to admit that I cried just a little bit.</span>"" and the character system in FF IV was sweet when you got a cast of over 15 characters in and out of your party at various times (SWEEET). The story's were top notch up untill the famous Square (We made a great story now we're going to have a lame ending) part of the game.

    Earthbound:

    This game is easily one of the unsung hero's of video gameing. It's funny and humerous nature, mixed in with a great combination of modern sites, and interesting gameplay made this a no contest of a place on my person top 3.

    Personal Runner-Up's.

    Fallout 1-2

    Why: It was a great game, with a sweet story line, and a feel that didn't really leave you wondering what they hey happened.

    Marrowwind:

    Why: A great feel a nice landscape, and a involving storyline, the reason this didn't appear on my list was, it was a pain in the royal A** to run around that whole giant map, and the game left very little information about where to go.
