Recommend some PC Engine/TurboGrafx16 games
« on: September 28, 2020, 01:32:57 pm »
I'm looking to be in the market for some PCE/TG16 games in the next 6 months or so. This includes CD games. I already have my eyes on the Dragon Half game (and am interested in investigating how to translate it), but I want to know what the general opinion is on PCE games in general. Japanese games are okay if they don't require reading too much text. I like RPGs, shmups, and platformers, but I'm open to just about anything if it's good.
