Default Old skool rpg's

what games are not to miss old rpg's from back on the ole snes and such since almost everyone has an emulator that can run em decently on our faster rigs. I still play the odd one that i come across that i haven;t finished. They are just getting harder and harder to find now. The one i am really wanting to find is the translated version of dragon quest 6 since i have finished the rest of the series

i think ff6 has been done already, and as far as dq 6 its almost fully finished something like 96% or something its just a matter of finding it out there somewhere to patch it.

earthbound - didn't like it too cartoonish
..final fantasy series - done
..terranigma - can't remember think i have finished them as well
..and especially chrono trigger - done way back on the reg snes when i owned one.
seiken densetsu 3,- never heard of it might look into it
breath of fire 1 and 2, just about to start part 3 on espx
7th saga - done and got bored with the sequel
super mario rpg - mario should have stayed bouncing boxes off his head this was just lame,
lufia and the fortress of doom - was fun while it lasted, lufia 2 - got bored real quick with it and never had the urge to go into the 99 lv cave,tales of phantasia - almost through that right now as well........

i wish i could find a copy of Crono Cross kickin around in some of the used stores, seems like everyone had kept em in hiding and no one trades em in anymore

Crono Cross blows, don't waste your time.

Seiken Densetu 3 or whatever it is is Secret of Mana 2. Impossibly hard (or maybe I just have no idea WTF I'm doing... ).

Super Mario RPG is Good Stuff, man. It's still an RPG, just with crazy bouncing boxes instead of chests. A nice diversion..

I was going to suggest the Dragon Warrior nes games but I see you've already played through the series.

hmm. Soul Blazer for the snes is a good action/rpg.

Don't forget Dragon Warrior for NES. That game was pretty awesome for its time.
