The Dark Cloud games, cheesy as hell but technically excellent with a great branching weapon upgrade system, 2 is the better game and Is barely linked to 1 aside from a few cameos.

All the Console F-Zero Games

Nightmare of Druaga: Fushigi No Dungeon, Brutal dungeon crawling, somewhat tedious though.

Maximo Ghosts To Glory, great hack n' slash Ghosts and Goblins Spin off, DO NOT be fooled by the goofy box art this is worth it if you like action platformers / hack n slash.

Gunman Clive 1&2, Decent Run n' gun for 3ds, they save the best gameplay for the final levels though.

I thought we were going to make it a challenge and talk about 7th or 8th generation games only.  8)
My recommended 6th+ generation games:
- Fire Emblem, Path of Radiance & Radiant Dawn
- Assassins' Creed II (PS3)
- Demon's souls
- Rock Band 2-3 with friends and a lot of plastic toys, or Rocksmith with the real thing (but solo)

Recommended translations:
- Super Robot Taisen J and Alpha Gaiden (yep, it's on an old platform, but yep, it still is good)
- Front Mission 2 and 5
- Daitekoku: oops
- Culdcept DS
- Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu

... nice question to make me check what translation patches are available again.  ;D

I was thinking about Zack & Wiki (Wii) again recently.  A delightful game, in many ways – the last gasp of Capcom's dying creative spirit, you might say.  It's too bad that it's a little too tied into the Wii mechanics to end up ported elsewhere.

I only wish the presentation was cleaned up a little.  It's so tempting to forgo all hints and extra lives in the name of achieving some kind of perfect achievement goal, but the game doesn't penalize you for using those items and you're just setting yourself up for teeth-grinding anguish by skipping them.  Also, be sure to send whatshisname out looking for treasure whenever you can, even if you have no particular place to send him.

And I'll flog The Binding of Isaac again.  I should get back into that soon.

Starcraft 2 arcade is free to play.

I would recommend:

If you are into turn based strategy, go for XCOM for PS3/Steam and Valkyria Chronicles  for 360/PS3/Steam.

If you like Hack and Slash with some meat in their combat, go for Dragon's Dogma for 360/PS3/Steam, Demon's Souls for PS3

Drakengard 1 & 2: They're kind of like generic Dynasty Warrior games, but for Square games they have really dark, twisted storylines.

Also you can fly around on a dragon, there's all kinds of weapons in each game to find/level up, and while the games aren't the most polished things in the world, it's easy to sucked into the story after a few missions (D2 especially.)

Plus, the first one has one of the most hilariously twisted secret endings I've ever seen.  :)

ToME 4/Tales of Maj'Eyal.  That's been my big time pit for a good while now.  Good roguelike that's mostly what you expect, though on a larger scale than most of it's type that you can buy (and indeed, it's actually 99.9% free and the copies you get on game sites are basically the Premium version).  Sword of the Stars: The Pit has also been pretty good (though perhaps a bit odd to some... think DoomRL meets Dungeons of Dredmor).

When has Age of Wonders ever gotten old?  The third is like today's HOMM to me.  King's Bounty was also good until the last two titles... they kinda lazed around on the job I think.  They're still all good fun to some degree though.

Tropico's pretty funny but 5 wasn't so hot.  I'd say 1, 3, or 4 is where it's at.  Honestly 3 is more sandboxy and has better humor, so I wouldn't strike it out to say 4 is a straight upgrade.  It's even better if you're the type that goes to the presidential debate thread a lot.

Soldak Entertainment's entire catalog is great if you enjoy Diablo-style games and don't mind the plot suffering a bit.  The entire world is random in Depths of Peril and Din's Curse, and all sorts of things happen in town while you're out killing things, like villagers fight and people get hungry.  Drox Operative is basically this kind of game in a 2D Escape Velocity style space shooter.  Also, the Torchlight games are basically a Diablo 1/2 mix in a different setting thanks to who's behind it.

Also, the Avadon series is pretty good if your into that turn-based RPG with movement like an SRPG.  Story may get old by the third game and I can't say much for additions outside of UI buffs and one new class in 2, but it's still all good.  All of Spiderweb's games are grand (though I prefer the older Avernum releases until the third remake comes out).

Oh, and if you like Descent-style shooters and don't mind Roguelite elements there's Sublevel Zero.  Surprisingly it's really well done.  Ziggurat is also pretty darn good "normal" FPS of this type, the rooms may get old after a while but the combat's where it's at for this one.

Age of Decadence could be better, but I like the world quite a lot.  If the setting appeals to you take a gander.

Shantae & the Pirate's Curse.

Cross between Metroidvania and Zelda-2 style action platforming, but with a modern feel.

Great humor, excellent graphics, tight controls, and one (https://youtu.be/lBqxJn99PZA?list=PL-PhJrOby0m7o1a12mPtgWK70KI53Uo_f) of the (https://youtu.be/fes1jnuFvAY?list=PL-PhJrOby0m7o1a12mPtgWK70KI53Uo_f) best VG (https://youtu.be/HWWB_BBtrTs?list=PL-PhJrOby0m7o1a12mPtgWK70KI53Uo_f) soundtracks I've (https://youtu.be/SDNG-2WST_s?list=PL-PhJrOby0m7o1a12mPtgWK70KI53Uo_f) heard in a long time.


Only downside is the game has absurd levels of fanservice -- but that may not be a negative depending on your tastes.

Xenoblade. It's pretty much the best RPG to come out of Japan in the 7th gen. It's a really long game, even by JRPG standards, but it doesn't feel like it thanks to extremely consistent plot pacing interspersed with great exploration and dungeon crawling.

Second this one. The sequel's pretty fun as well.

As for hacks: The link in my sig is a mighty fine Super Mario Land 1 hack.   :thumbsup:

I always hated the controls, but otherwise, yeah I would recommend this one too.

THIS (http://www.zeldix.net/t1243-conker-s-high-rule-tail-public-release)

^^That's a fourth gen hack. Took way too much time to make.  :'(

You'll probably need to register over there to see the link, so you can either do that or wait a couple more days and it should be out here on RHDN as well! :thumbsup:

Oh, yeah... that translation I mentioned I was playing -- I completed it and fully recommend it: Famicom Detective Club Part II (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/850/).
Decent story, but dear god do you have to do a lot of brute forcing through dialog options to progress through that game. :banghead:

yakuza 4 and 5 all the way, sure you could play 1 and 2 but 4 has all the cutscenes from 1-3

we don't talk about 3's localization

Speaking of translations, check out Chaos Seed.  Pretty unique game that's all it's own type, but I'd call it a hybrid of Dungeon Keeper/Evil Genius's style of building a dungeon with uh... it has parts of an action-RPG I guess?

Also the SNES remake of the NES Megami Tensei games is pretty darn good material for October.

If you never actually got to see the pics that tastycakes spammed the site with, consider yourself lucky.

Posting this in case someone else scours the thread for game suggestions.

Beyond Good and Evil - I've had this game for ages but just recently started playing through it. For a gamecube game (it's also on PS2, maybe Xbox) it's way ahead of it's time: it feels like I'm playing a modern PS3/4 game in how some of the mechanics are laid out. For the most part the game's fully voiced, the characters bullshit with each other as you run around and do things. Gameplay wise, it feels like the best parts of a 3D zelda title and Pokemon Snap are melded together (you can take pictures of fauna to make extra cash - even the bosses and the different species of peoples!).

Also, there's an entire race of mechanically-inclined Jamaican Rhinos that run a garage your character frequents for vehicle upgrades. And who can say no to something that epic?  :thumbsup:
