Here's a list of every PS1 RPG by release date. I have questions for you.

12 posts in this topic

I'm writing down every RPG for PS1 that has an English localization in order of release date. God, I love doing otaku things like this! I have questions for the community.

1. Can you think of any that I've missed?

2. Have you ever seen a list ordered by release date like this anywhere else?

3. What sites do you trust for accurate release dates?

Notice that a suspicious number of dates are on the very last day of the month. I guess that's a convention for games that the release month is known and not the exact day. I'd love to be able to get the exact dates for all of those.

By the way, I'm doing this for a rap song. ^_^ Here's the list so far.

Very liberal interpretation of "RPG" IMO, but it's consistently so.

Other than the fact that Tactics Ogre was sold in the U.S. without the "Let Us Cling Together" subtitle, I can't think of anything you missed, and I checked some obscure ones off the top of my head.

Sweet cheesecakes! Im glad i dropped my dream of owning every ps1 RPG ever, I have a good number of these, but this list is HUGE! Thanks for this list though, it could be very informative for PSP owners.

Nice list! I'll have to remember to consult this the next time I'm looking up under-represented RPG soundtracks for my next compo. Aside from what MindWanderer said about Tactics Ogre not having the "Let Us Cling Together" subtitle (that was on the PSP release), the only thing I really noticed is that Lunar Silver Star Story should have Complete at the end of the title.

I just got a warm fuzzy feeling from seeing Brigandine on the list.

I can't think of any PS1 RPGs that you're missing, either. It just makes me lament that I couldn't buy all of these when they were out. A lot of them had very limited print runs.

You're missing Persona II: Innocent Sin, which is the first part of the Persona II duology. :3 Persona 1 also had the "Revelations" title appended to it in the US.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persona_2), Innocent Sin didn't receive a US release on the PS1, just the PSP. (And apparently Eternal Punishment didn't come out on the PSP in the US, just the PS1.)

I wish more of these games were on the PSN in the US. I'd kill for Saga Frontier, Breath of Fire III, and Vandals Hearts II just to name a few.

Raising the dead here, because it has to be said.

He is missing the Mega Man Legends Series, (1, 2, Misadventures of Tron Bonne). ARPG based on Mega Man.

I just happened to mosey into OCRemix.org for the first time in forever and a very old post I made has been resurrected. My timing is unbelievable. My question about adding Mega Max Legends to the list is: Are there character parameters that you can increase by grinding? We have to have at least that to be an RPG. Although, that means I need to remove Alundra. I don't know if Alundra 2 is the same or not but Alundra actually isn't an RPG, so I should remove it.
