I've been getting backi nto a bit of an old-school jrpg mood lately. "I Am Setsuna" and "Cosmic Star Heroine" are two games I'm looking forward to over the next month or so. I just took advantage of the square-enix PSN sale for "Legend Of Mana" and "Final Fantasy 4 Collection", and I plan to dig back into the RPG Maker site I visit annually for Summer Of Free JRPG options.
I typically think SNES or SNES-inspired (like I Am Setsuna) games as being the "Old School" style. (Pre-polygon in most cases.) I think my top favs of that era are Final Fantasy 6(3 SNES) and Chrono Trigger.
Any other old-school JRPG fans with good memories of favorite gems? Do you still own them?
