What games have people started?

If there's gonna be a topic about games being beaten, then there should be one about games being started.

Three games I started recently (don't comment on the iso...):

Wild Arms

Suikoden 2

Breath of Fire IV

I'm currently mainly going through Wild Arms.  It has a Lufia 2 feel which I personally prefer over BoF IV's annoying 3D dungeon... (yeah, that's mainly why I'm not playing BoF IV much right now).  As for Suikoden 2, I think I better check out the FAQs.  I don't want to go through a game again to just see the good ending.

Great Red Spirit

Suikoden 1, started not too long ago. Hardly into it though...

Suikoden 3, started a bit before Suikoden 1, which is now on hold since I'm getting my butt kicked, need to restart, and when I do, I usually don't have any motivation to play much. Thankfully, I'm only 3 hours into the game

Breath of Fire 5, which is starting to tick me off since I can't find an inn anywhere...

and Escape Velocity Nova. I beat the Vell-os and the Polaris storyline, and now I'm with the Feds with a jacked up pirate Valkyrie :)


Whoops, forgot about Lunar Eternal Blue. I was playing it until I got the cursed words 'Enter Disk 3' :P

Diablo II. However I have been playing this game before. Never finished hell difficulty yet though. So I still have something to do.

Dungeon siege. I like this game. Your character grows based on how you act.

Haven't started many games yet. But probably will start on Star Ocean soon.
And I'm currently waiting for FFX-2. Should be on the European market in about 2 months.
Started playing an Rpg. I just never stopped...

Gideon Zhi

Too many :/ Devil May Cry, Unlimited Saga, Broken Sword for GBA (although I'm close to beating that...), Suikoden 3, Grandia, probably more I can't think of right now.


EV:Nova is a good game but I stopped playing because lack of key means that you can't get all the way through a storyline.

I've started so many games but stopped before the end. I could make a list but it would be massive. I'll probably resume Suikoden 1 sometime if I can find it. I also started Front Mission 3 of late.


Started Castlevania: Circle of the Moon and Aria of Sorrow, and Golden Sun. Cotm is on hold until I finish Aos, since it kind of sucks in comparison. Aos is about as close to Symphony of the Night as you can get, one of my all-time favourite games.

Rpgfreak: Arc the Lad Twilight of Spirits is out in Europe on Friday the 30th, assuming it doesn't get delayed. has £10 off on preorders. The title's been shortened to just Arc Twilight of Spirits. And no, I don't work for amazon :P


I can't count the number of games I've started and not finished.  I've played countless amounts of games.  I also have a habit of playing the first hour or so of all the Japanese RPG's and a good handful of Japanese platformers and never finishing them.  Although I guess alot of that is just finding out if a game is translation worthy or not.

The only active game I'm really playing right now is Legend of Dragoon which despite a few translations issues is a good game. - The central hub of the ROM hacking community.


I had a similar predicament a couple of years ago. I'd bought way too many US Playstation RPGs (the ones PAL gamers missed out on), and ended up with big pile of games with only about three hours clocked in. I've managed to beat most of these, but I still haven't finished Arc the Lad III, Brave Fencer Musashi or Persona 2:EP. AtLIII is kinda dull, and BFM's last level is annoyingly hard compared to the rest of the game, which was easy. I hate final dungeons >_<
Persona 2:EP is good, but I got to an evil dungeon, and haven't had the patience to play it since. Sewers + time limit = WORST DUNGEON EVAR :P


I just started Tales of Destiny II for playstation (aka Tales of Eternia).  I was informed that it's not a true sequal but I have enjoyed the Tales games in the past and don't have a PS2 to play the true sequal.


I just started Dragon Quest 4 for the PSX. I'm on the 2nd chapter.


Ah, Brave Fencer Musashi, that's another one I got and is awaiting it's turn to be played. :)

I restarted Diety Sword.  It's like...  the rpg that brought me to the relm of rpgs.  I finally found a working version (Win95 ver) since all the dos version (the one I played) never worked on my machine.  Revisiting the game for the third time made a few things notable:

- The lvl system is that of a normal turn based rpg lvl up upon exp and Saga style stat up.
- Visible enemy, so no random battles.
- You can't visit towns again once you have left the area due to story plot.  This applies to dungoen as well.  Once you enter some dungeons you can't come back out, ever.
- You can save anywhere.
- You regain some hp/sp after a battle.  The amount gained is not known, but this means that you can stay in a dungeon for a really really long time without having to come out (most of the time you can't anyways).
- From what I remember, once you reach a certain lvl you can only lvl up using items.  Manually lvling your characters will not gain you lvl up once you have reached the maximum level allowed for you to level, even though you still gain experience points.  Not sure if the Win95 version is like this.

That's all for now.


I started and finished FF X-2. Now to get to 100% with the best possible ending... This will keep me busy for some time.
Started playing an Rpg. I just never stopped...


This topic caused me to remember Brave Fenser Musashi, so I started playing that.  I got up to the first major boss at the end of Chapter 1 and couldn't for the life of me beat him.  I kept getting within one or two hits of killing him, but just couldn't finish it.  

There must be a secret or something that I'm missing as I can't believe the first major boss can be this hard. - The central hub of the ROM hacking community.
