    Parasite Eve

    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

    Get these two ASAP.
    Everything about Parasite Eve is pure awesomeness, the battle system is awesome, the graphics are also great, the storyline is great & hooking, the soundtrack too, there's New Game+ with a something new to explore, so there's replayability. You can't miss this one.

    Castlevania SOTN is the best title you'll ever see to give the best use to the MetroidVania formula, there's plenty to explore, awesome soundtrack, the gameplay is very variated, summon familiars, cast spells with button combinaton, shapeshifting, lot of equipment, relics. Epic boss fights. This game is very very fun.


    Then I'll reccommend you:

    Both Suikoden, I didn't finished neither of both, but the storyline is very intriguing, the thing is that the battle system kind of sucks.

    Legend Of Mana, this game is fun, it's a very non-linear RPG.

    Both Vandal Hearts, again, intriguing storyline, but I'm not a fan of TRPG's even though I love FFT.

    Front Mission 3, You'll have some fun on this one. TRPG with Mechas beating the crap out of them.

    both Tales Of. The battle system on this series is purely awesome & fun. It's like a fighting game.

    Koudelka, the gameplay sucks in almost every single way, but the characters are purely awesome, very realistic personalities & very memorable dialogues.

    There's still a lot of RPG's that I didn't played yet. Hail the PSX

    SOTN rox...though it's really more of a sidescroller/action game than RPG, with rpg elements.

    I own parasite eve and i must say it is insane. You can move everywhere during battle and that is quite intuitive to rpgs, but the story is pretty weird...mitochondria take over people and make them go aflame, youre the only person who doesnt go aflame and somehow you're related to "mitochandria eve" aka 1st "woman" in the world.

    Still, I recommend.
    Look!
    It's a flash animator!
    It's a VGM remixer!
    No, it's INSANE!

    Yeah Parasite Eve is INSANE, in the good way.
    About SOTN you're right, but it still rocks. I'm a castlevania fanboy practically xD.

    If you can name some more, feel free to add. I am pretty sure if that is not 100% of the list, it's close. And some of those are not true RPG's at that; some are sub RPG's or have RPG elements to them.

    I liked (out of the games you mentioned): Grandia, Parasite Eve, Suikoden, Star Ocean: The 2nd Story, Koudelka, and Persona.

    Rhapsody is like the super easiest RPG I've ever played. Pancake special just literally destroys nearly everything.

    I'd still give Castlevania Symphony of the Night a look at just for the hell of it. It's a possible candidate for being my all time favorite game. Even if it's not much of an rpg game in the sense of like gripping story and battle systems. It does have a more side scrolling action rpg type of gameplay in the style of metroid with lots of areas to explore, hidden weapons, upgrades, spells etc. The music is great, it has a darkly atmospheric feel to it making it one of the most memorable soundtracks from the PSone game library. It's a cult classic that defines the castlevania series.

    If you're looking more at a rpg similar to that of Final Fantasy, I'd give Parasite Eve a try. It was one of those short lived cult series made by Square. It's my favorite game outside of Final Fantasy that Square did. The music is great once again. The gameplay is pretty cool, it has a turn based battle system but you can still move to dodge projectiles, which makes for an interesting feature for a turn based rpg battle system. The story of the game was actually based on the sci-fi horror novel also titled "Parasite Eve" written by Hideaki Sena. It takes a little bit to follow but it's quite unique and interesting.

    Legend of Legaia, Legend of Dragoon and Dragon Valor are all very good games.

    Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is easily my favorite PSX RPG. The only problem is it cost quite a bit.
    One day I'll travel from the east to the west, and tap into the hidden strengths that all men possess.

    Star Ocean Second Story (Im still playing the game now, i actually never played it before 3.)
    SOTN - Everything about the game is a must have including the song Dance of pales which may give you an eargasm.
    Tales of Destiny - I'm just now playing this game.
    Tales of Destiny 2 (Tales of Eternia) - Good game beaten it a few its one of the better Tales games.
    Tatics Ogre - Never played it but I've heard its like FFT so it must be good considering its made by the same guy.
    Legend of Mana and Legaia - GET THEM. It's somewhat like the old zelda games. IMO

    the great eye is ever watchful...

    Legend of Dragoon - It got me hooked on the RPG and if I had never played that at such a young age I never would have got into Final Fantasy, and therefore probably never would have built up a tolerance for cut scenes that fill up games (like in FF and MGS). If I never got into those japanese type RPG/Action games then I probably never would have been much of a gamer at all! I owe everything to this game

    Great i'm a sadistic evil person with a wing sticking out of his back. F***ing Fantastic. Oh well at least I have a big sword

    My 2 favorite Psx games would be FF9 and Legend of Dragoon. FF9 had the best storyline out of all the Final Fantasy games on the psx and Legend of Dragoon is so good for me I would play it again if I owned it right now and I've beaten it 4 times already. FF8 is close behind those two as well.

    Legend of Dragoon, Legend of Legaia, Suikodens, Xenogears, honestly, just about every RPG for the PSX is wonderful in its own special way, except for Beyond the Beyond, Fuck that shit.

    I beat Beyond the Beyond... the battle system was sorta like Super Mario RPG, but um more horrible. Having a turbo controller helps, but the story is bland. I only liked one song which was 'Triumph'.
