What's a good vintage RPG with an expansive world with multiple towns and locations to explore? Preferably a Japanese RPG for PS1 or SNES.

Pic not related, Alundra was fun but I found the map tiny

Any Final Fantasy from IV to IX

pick whichever setting seems most interesting to you

Not OP, but I've got Ultima Exodus for NES, is it worth playing?

Phantasy Star 1 on Master System
3 medium sized planets to explore, plenty of towns, lotsa dungeons. And better looking, smoother scrolling dungeons than you'll see on SNES.

MM6 is fun as fuck. MM7 worth a play, as well.

>> No.3768439

Fuck yeah, that game seemed like serious business as a kid, do it

Op, this

I crossed a stream in the castle where you start and everyone died.

>> No.3768624

Star Ocean: The Second Story sounds like exactly what you're looking for

>> No.3768636

Dragon Quest 3 maybe?

You'll get more out of it if you play DQ1 first though. But that's a super tiny and short game compared to DQ3.

>> No.3768643

Cliche response, but Baldur's Gate and Fallout. BG's locations are all made of painted/prerendered images (hence 5CD's), so across its vast landskapes there's very little repetition of assets, and every town looks rather unique.

>> No.3768916

Legend of Dragoon is not a perfect RPGs but the variety of towns is remarkable.

>> No.3768924


Though real classics, the first 3 Ultima games did not age well. You won't miss anything by not playing them. If you want to get into the series start with the SMS version of Ultima IV.

Haven't played those yet, so I just recommended what I know.

>> No.3770824

I couldn't get into any Ultima games. It seems like as the series went on, their graphics got better but their mechanics got worse. I was watching that spoony autisimo guy talking about each game. All those chests.

>> No.3770848

That's 7 and 8 where they tried to simplify things and appeal to new groups of players.
The others tended to improve the existing system.
2 kind of tried to do too much at once and was too much for the programmer to handle

Ultima Underworld is a milestone in gameplay as well as graphics and other areas.

Those Spoony videos are crap. Best you ignore anything said or shown there.

I just want someone to teach me about the childhood I never had

The childhood of being brain damaged?

that is one way to put it

>> No.3770902

Damn, it's still one of the prettiest games.

>> No.3770903

Naw, just about games I may have glanced at and never thought twice about back when Egghead Games was around
