Sometimes it's hard to believe it was so long ago that games like this were released. Such a wonderful story, brilliant gameplay and magical soundtrack. I remember when I started playing and seeing those crude graphics in Rim Elm and thinking, I won't get far with this, and then having the battle training, and then all hell let's loose and you realise your tiny village is surrounded with mist before venturing out into the wide world. I was enchanted. And still remember each location so vividly, the monks of Biron, the half dead city, the mist fortress hovering over everything, the awful scenes where you learn of the fate of Noa's family. Wonderful stuff.
But then, there were so many games that fitted that description back in the days of PS1 RPGs.

I remember liking Legend of Legaia, but getting annoyed by how many times you'd have to use them to power up the summon attacks. But yeah, the imagery there was really nice. One of the better "doomed worlds" in games.

I still like the fist Legaia. I used to get bits from that soundtrack stuck in my head pretty often. As Rob said, the only thing that bugged me was having to power up the Ra-Seru ad naseum.

I like that kind of thing. Maybe why I loved FF8 too, endlessly drawing magic.
