Someone asked for a list of games in a comment. Here’s a link to the rough list I’ve been working on as a google doc.
It’s complete through 1999. In the “Notes” section:
- Question marks indicate I’m not sure if it qualifies as an SRPG or not. I’ll make final decisions on these later.
- “RMK” means “remake” and two stars mean that there’s a remake of that game.
- An “x” means that I’ve already played the game so I won’t be replaying it, though I will make a post on it.
- The greyed out games are ones I’m not even making a post about, either because I’ve decided they aren’t SRPGs, or because I’ve played another version of the game (e.g. Langrisser for Mega Drive is greyed out because I’m playing the PC Engine version.)
FYI, I played through Atelier Marie Plus and it's DEF not a SRPG.
My impression here if you're curious: https://jhipst3r.blogspot.com/2017/11/atelier-marie-plus.html
Thats a lot of games :O
I noticed one game for PSX not on list – Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, released in Japan as The Puppet Princess of Marl Kingdom
Its strategy rpg but for kids.
And second game found through googling not on your list is obscure 3DO game called Guardian War.
Yes, I agree. I just love the Atelier series so I put it on there — I've played Marie. It's a SimulationRPG, haha.
I have not been counting games like Rhapsody as SRPGs — just regular RPGs with a grid-based combat system. There are a lot of them and I don't feel like they really qualify as SRPGs of the type that I want to play.
I completely forgot to check the 3DO. There does appear to be emulators for it so I guess I should go through the games list.
