/vr/, can you recommend something that isn't Zelda? (Ogre Battle already on the list)
pic related is the tippy-top of my collection.

You're out of luck, there's like four RPGs on the N64.

Paper Mario and Quest 64 are all I can think of.

You could consider Pokemon stadium too.

I fell in love with Ogre Battle SNES. The store has a Japanese OB64, but it's like $200. Gotta be in English before I shell out like that.

Megaman 64 is a pretty good substitute for RPGs.

There's more than enough RPG elements to qualify for most people, and the sidequests in it really bring the game together.

Easy, if you have to invest your money into making a jrpg, you want to make sure the biggest possible audience will buy it, and that audience for jrpgs had the psx.

That's fucking cool.
Is Alpha translated yet? I know there was a project but I never knew if it ever finished.
Also, SRW F needs a translation too.

on topic, pic related is said to be the best Shiren entry in the series, I haven't played it, but I played Shiren on SNES and DS and they're good roguelike RPGs.

>> No.4483887

>why tho?
Because 5/6 of those games in your image were developed by Squaresoft who did not support the N64. EarthBound 2 was cancelled.

Paper Mario is the best, though

No good games on n64 outside of the handful everyone knows.
It's a tiny library with almost no hidden gems.

Perfect dark, and conkers were super popular back in the day, they aren't "hidden" except from newfags.

>> No.4485437

so when is a game hidden for you? they were hardly promoted and the average n64 player didn't own them or know about them. the zelda games, the mario games, all of the nintendo games, these are the commonly known ones.
maybe there are some non-exclusive games (micro machines, tony hawk's), but they don't count

>> No.4485793

Jet Force Gemini
Army Men 1/2
Wave Race 64
Ogre Battle

Yeah, The N64 has a good handful of excellent games but the majority of its library is shovelware trash

>> No.4485798

Are you high? Conker's Bad Fur day was shilled all over the place because it was the N64 equivalent of South Park. Everyone knew about it. The problem was the game was also the N64 equivalent of Daikatana and was never even released until the PS2 was out, so hardly anyone actually played it.

Perfect Dark was promoted as the sequel to Goldeneye, and everyone played it.

>> No.4485846

>the majority of its library is shovelware trash
still has one of the best good game vs shovelware ratios of any console

>visual novels

>> No.4486136

A game like Perfect Dark is definitely not a hidden gem. So many people owned it.

The average SNES owner probably didn't own Chrono Trigger but that doesn't make it a hidden gem, it just means that the average SNES owner played Mario games and shovelware and not 60-hour JRPGs.

>> No.4486143

It's not a visual novel though. It's more like Princess Maker. A simulation raising game, has many RPG elements including dungeon crawling.

>> No.4486150

Post an example of the dungeon crawling aspect then.

>> No.4486160

It's not a visual novel, it says right on the box that's a simulation game. It even has some battles.
Sorry anon, you lose this one. If you would have said "it's a raising sim, not an RPG!" then things would have turned out differently, but no, you had to say it's a visual novel. Too bad.

How should I confront this argument? I don't even watch much anime, but the little I've seen seems like very variated. Perfect Blue, the Street Fighter II movie, Ninja Scroll, Alita...
