For me it's the music, graphics, and combat.

>Even today, I'd rather replay something like Ark The Lad II or Shiroki Majou than a FF, I'd rather replay Chrono Cross

You may well be more experiencing genre burn out more than a specific dislike of FF. I used to quite like jrpgs abd though the ffs weren't my favorite many times I did enjoy several and thought they were good entries in the genre (2,3,5,6,9). However as time went by and many were played I completely burnt out on the genre as a whole and now find any new one I've tried impenetrably boring.

Though that's not to say that personal taste doesn't also play a big role. I know DQ has many fans and I enjoyed the first three to a degree but every one I tried after felt like pulling teeth trying to get into it.

My philosophy is that I know there's not nearly enough time to play everything, or even everything I want so if a game isn't actively enjoyable on some level I drop it fast.

BoF4 is a masterpiece. I have no idea how you got Xenogears jumbled up with it though. Most of the writing in most PS1 games was shitty.

I haven't watched that but in my opinion the story/characters are the best part. It is a slow build, but if you go with the flow it's excellent.

Think of the pacing like Dragon Quest but instead of being cheery and charming, it's foreboding and melancholic. It's probably not for everyone, but I think it works really well.

I definitely prefer BOF3 but I'll be damned if this isn't the best blend of 2D and 3D on the PS1

Either a troll or kattfag, ignore him. BoFIV has flaws but art is not one of them.

Fair warning though, she doesn't enter the story until around the half way point.

BoF is a cool series, I hope you enjoy it anon.

Although they were already mentioned I feel Capcom's games deserve another mention.

Breath of Fire III
Breath of Fire IV
Mega Man 8
Strider
Mega Man X4
Mega Man X5
Mega Man X6
Quiz Nanario Dreams

There were also countless fighting games but many ran like shit and play much better on the Saturn.

Ps1 appreciation thread? What have you guys played recently?

Just beat BoFIV a few days ago, think it may be one of my now all time favorites. Not a huge jrpg fan but the battle system, art, and story were incredibly appealing to me. I dropped III as it kind of bored me around halfway but IV was just phenomenal to me.

>>3930024
Mega man legends are the best in my opinion, though even then things like crash and spyro still look great. Honestly the more cartoony looking games aged fine. As far as more gritty stuff I feel mgs1 has aged relatively good, only thing that bugs me is no eyes on the model. I see most cite FF7 for the "ugly early 3d" look of ps1 games but I don't see it. Sure the overworld models are wonky but the in battle sprites are fine and the prerendered backgrounds are beautiful.

What games are considered ugly exactly? Maybe they don't look as good as good as certain 16/32 bitvera stuff butbthe ps1 looks fine.

I got to say BoF4 purely for it's smooth sprite animations. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
Even outside of battles, the characters had all sorts of little gestural animations.

And they didn't ruin it by zooming - causing the graphics to scale and look all wonky.
