Final Fantasy IV (aka II upon initial release in NA)

 

PSOne era:

Never got to sink my teeth into BOF. As a kid I remember seeing adverts in gaming mags for IV and always wanting to get it for the PS.

BOF is great man! I played BOFII on an emulator and BOFIII I owned the disc copy. Great game

I didn't play BOFIV but it's available on PSN so I may check it out. I'm have begun to buy digital versions of old RPGs now. Xenogears was my first one.

I agree!!! LOD had a battle system that kept you engaged especially when you had Lavitz in your party. His combos were sweet to watch!

Dang! I almost forgot.

Hell Yeah! Lavitz combo FTW!

And another BIG YEASH to LOD's battle system, it was marked as Industry's first during it's release. 

Brings back some good'ol memory indeed. #nostalgia

I was a sega fanboy as a kid. I loved the Shining Force games. I also remember Skies of Arcadia. Put tons of hours into those games. 

We also can't forget Diablo 1 & 2. Played the shit outta those as well.

Super Mario RPG: Legend Of The Seven Stars, hands down.

I've never been much of an RPG guy. The only games I really liked were Super Mario RPG, Pokémon and South Park: The Stick Of Truth.

With a topic like this, it needs clarification on the end timeline. Like up to which generation is considered the last for old school?

 

GBA: Pokemon Emerald/Dragon Ball Z: Legacy of Goku II

 

I grew up with Sonic, Mario, opportunities to play Zelda, Pokemon, fighters, racers, adventure games, platformers, and shooters, so I didnt experience a lot of RPGs aside from Pokemon and HH Dbz titles.
