Good to see so many solid games being mentioned. 7th saga (not nearly as hard as people claim however), Alcahest, Shining souls 2 Ys 5 (don't forget 4) and Brainlord. I beat Ys 5 and Brainlord again (beaten them multiple times) recently and the puzzles in BL can get downright nasty, especially coupled with some tough platforming maneuvers but happy to say I never really had to go to a FAQ, except to find a few very well hidden hearts.
Loved Lufia 1 and 2 for the snes but could not stand Ruins of Lore for the GBA or Secret of the stars and found Chaos seed (snes) to be over rated.
Cyber Knight 1 and 2 for the snes, once you get the hang of them, are solid games.
Dragon View (snes)
Magical land of wozz is really under rated. Feda: Emblem of Justice for srpgs too.
Feel like Twisted tales of spike mcfang does not get enough love.
Wandering Souls I did not care for, the game that came before it, Mage Gauntlet was much better. Better gameplay/flow, better music and sound, better graphics, more natural spikes in challenge, etc.
I really like Star Ocean second Story. seems to get a bad rap from a lot of people i meet. final Fantasy 8 is also just dogged by most people i talk to about ff games. Not exactly sure if i would consider ff8 underrated. Just going by what most people tell me. Also, Alone In The Dark The New Nightmare seems under appreciated. I guess after the enormous effect Resident Evil had on the population, it seemed to "die" away from most peoples thoughts. I play it a lot though.
Well, they don't know what they are talking about and don't like good games because it was received pretty high praise.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Ocean%3A_The_Second_Story
