#1 Edited by gimmysumcowbel (418 posts) -

i got a points card from a friend that has 800 points on it. So i can get NES, SNES, and Genesis games i think.  
i saw Phantasy Star IV, Shining Force 2 along with a couple of other interesting JRPG's on there. what JRPG would you guys recommend off the VC? 
 
Edit: Its between Phantasy Star IV and Super Mario RPG. Which one though? Fuck!

Super Mario RPG
Breath of Fire 2
Shining Force
Phantasy Star IV
 
Those are all really good. Just a note on Breath of Fire 2: It is as traditional as you can get with a JRPG (in terms of the battles). That game is grindtastic.

If you're interested in that kind of stuff, go for Super Mario RPG.

@PureRok:
which one of those has the best story in your opinion?

I think PureRok's list is flawless.  Check out reviews for all those games and see what one you think suites your style, likes, and dislikes the best.  Super Mario RPG IS awesome.

Super mario rpg will either sicken you or you will become a fan of it, if your a fan of fun and challenging rpgs don't get it
