Replaying or playing old JRPGs for the first time

I recently ebayed and emulated a bunch of JRPGs and action RPGs, mostly ones I missed out on in order to catch up on classics I missed.

I ebayed Star Ocean: The Second Story, Breath Of Fire 3, Guardian's Crusade, Jade Cocoon, Legend Of Legaia, Shadow Madness, Paper Mario TTYD, Legaia 2, Dark Cloud, Okage, and Jade Cocoon 2

I emulated too much stuff to name, but heres a few; Lufia 1&2, Phantasy Star 1-4, Ys 1-3, Golden Sun 1&2, Crystalis, Glory Of Heracles 2, and Dragon Quest 1-3(SNES)

As an indie developer, I'm playing through a lot of stuff I missed for research purposes, but mostly for fun as well. I was just wondering if anyone else is having a long running marathon, because so far this year, Ive played nothing but JRPGs.

    Sweet! I always wanted to play through Shining: The Holy Arc, just gotta figure out the Saturn emulator. Which Earthbound you playing through?

    I played the first 10 hours and then gave up because it is too grindy. I actually have this problem with all FPDCs. They get too grindy in the later parts.

    Didnt know that, I just assumed it played the same as Golden Sun, but with a FP view.

    I did have a lot of fun playing Shining: The Holy Arc back then, a friend did lend me it and ask me to map it all, I did and manage to get 100%.
    I am playing the only one that we got here, Mother 2.

    That's not true anymore. We now have Mother 1 as well.

    If you have a Wii U, you can play Earthbound Zero, beware though, its as tough as a rock without save states or sped up grinding
