Default ITT you recommend (old)RPGs

Hi. I only really play old video games because I can't afford nor do I have the time for 7th generation games. At the same time, I went a very long time without playing new games for the systems I already have/have had. There are very many games out there I've never had a chance to play. So, please recommend your favorite PS2, PS1, computer(dos box, emulator), and other 5th and 6th generation console RPGs. Thanks a lot.

The Legend of Dragoon for PS1 was very good. I like how the battle system didn't rely so much on luck--all of the damages to/from one another are directly related to your/their stats, unlike the late Final Fantasy games where you would get a 10-15 point variation.

The battle system is unique too in that you have to learn how to time each individual hit in succession, as well as worrying about enemy counterattacks. The storyline is pretty nice too.

I would say Chrono Trigger but that's not super cheap...

Thanks for the suggestions. I've beaten Chrono Trigger and Legend of Dragoon. LoD is a great game and I recommend it myself.

Final Fantasy (insert any number here) SNES/PS/PS2
Legend of Legaia PS1
Illusion of Gaia SNES
Secret of Mana SNES

Super Mario RPG SNES
Chrono Trigger SNES
Lufia SNES
Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past SNES

Tales of Destiny 1/2 PS/PS2
Crono Cross PS1

Edit: Although I love the original SNES Earthbound best, this was posted on the forums somewhere a while ago when the translation of Mother 3 (Earthbound 2) was finally completed and available. It's a great game (played it about 1/4 through I guess) before I went onto other things. Great game, translations are accurate, everything perfectly done.

Earthbound 2 (Mother 3)

Wizardry 8... PC RPG from 2001. One of my favorite older RPGs. Kinda plays and feels like it's from the late 90s.

Skip Final Fantasy Mystic Quest as it is by and large a piece of crap.

Chrono Cross for the PS1 is one of my favorite RPGs of all time. It's not very challenging (there's only one fight that brought me to my knees a couple times) but the story, atmosphere, and characters make up for it.

It was actually a pretty great game if you ignore the fact that have to replay it a few times to achieve all the different paths/quests. I hate a good renting it long ago, haven't been able to purchase it yet.
