Classic RPGs that aren't hard to find

A Listmania! list by Sandy "ec20xx"
 
Final Fantasy VII Platinum
1.  Final Fantasy VII Platinum by Sony
The list author says:
  "A true classic. Don't be without this. the atmosphere is perfect, the music is perfect (apart from the fact that primitive tools were used) and the gameplay is perfect."
87.95   Used & New from: 12.85
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (301 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Final Fantasy VI
2.  Final Fantasy VI by Sony
The list author says:
  "Can't decide whether my favourite Final Fantasy is this or FFVII. You get a real nostalgic feeling from playing this game. Originally on SNES, but that version is rare and was not released in Europe."
87.95   Used & New from: 14.92
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

Final Fantasy IX (Platinum)
3.  Final Fantasy IX (Platinum) by Namco Bandai
The list author says:
  "Not one of the best ever, but worthy of playing. Nice nostalgic mediaevil setting. Probably Nobuo's (the music man) best work."
Used & New from: 18.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)

Shenmue (Dreamcast)
4.  Shenmue (Dreamcast) by Sega
The list author says:
  "Some may say it isn't an RPG. Highly overlooked! One of the biggest gaming masterpieces ever, in my opinion. Is actually quite rare, but has some cheap marketplace prices at the time I'm writing this."
Used & New from: 22.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (100 customer reviews)

Shenmue II (Xbox)
5.  Shenmue II (Xbox) by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "Just as good as the original. there is a dreamcast version, but it is much rarer than this (so wouldn't qualify for this list)."
Used & New from: 18.85
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Zelda : The Ocarina Of Time (N64)
6.  Zelda : The Ocarina Of Time (N64) by Nintendo
The list author says:
  "Is old, but has some cheap prices. if you have an N64 and don't have this, shame on you! One of the best games ever."
Used & New from: 12.00
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (108 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)
7.  The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube) by Nintendo
The list author says:
  "The newest Zelda game, some people argue about the sailing element of the game, but this is still a classic in my eyes. If you're lucky, you can get a bonus disk with Ocarina Of Time (above) on it!"
Used & New from: 17.69
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (138 customer reviews)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Four Swords (GBA)
8.  The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Four Swords (GBA) by Nintendo
The list author says:
  "People argue that the GBA port is poor, but there is no link the the SNES version on amazon, and the SNES version is certainly very rare!"
Used & New from: 13.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Grandia
9.  Grandia by Ubisoft
The list author says:
  "Most people don't see it as a classic, but I really liked it.  Originally on Saturn (Only in Japan), it is very light hearted (in a good way) and has some good ideas that have now been milked dry."
72.95   Used & New from: 20.95
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Skies of Arcadia Legends
10.  Skies of Arcadia Legends by Namco Bandai
The list author says:
  "Dreamcast version is too rare for this list. This has the unoriginal idea of Sky Pirates. Battle system could have been better, but doesn't spoil the best true RPG on Dreamcast/GC."
Used & New from: 59.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Alundra
11.  Alundra by Psygnosis
The list author says:
  "Pretty old now, but is the best Zelda clone I've played. Sure, it rips off Zelda in every whiff of it, but it does it with style. Can be a bit too abstract though."
72.95   Used & New from: 9.24
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Alundra 2
12.  Alundra 2 by Activision
The list author says:
  "A lot of people didn't like it, but I think it was worthy of more than it got. More of an adventure game than an RPG. It's 3D, unlike the original, and has a very nice atmosphere to it. Easy to play."
Used & New from: 1.52
2.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Dark Chronicle (PS2)
13.  Dark Chronicle (PS2) by Sony
The list author says:
  "Last year's big RPG. Fairly new, and should be easy to find in a local game shop. The original was good (Named Dark Cloud), but tested too many new ideas. This game perfected those ideas."
Used & New from: 19.75
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Breath Of Fire 3
14.  Breath Of Fire 3 by Capcom
The list author says:
  "Very light hearted, and has a nostalgic feeling to it. Nice bouncy music. Don't expect too much perfection though."
Used & New from: 17.96
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Breath of Fire IV (PS)
15.  Breath of Fire IV (PS) by Capcom
The list author says:
  "Probably the best in the series. Is set in a desert world. Stay away from the GBA games, (they're too old to enjoy) and the PS2 game (Too many new ideas spoil it, and the world does not suit BOF)."
Used & New from: 14.95
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

See buying options
Megaman Legends 2 (PS)
16.  Megaman Legends 2 (PS) by Capcom
The list author says:
  "I just had to put this in. I don't know why I bought it, but what I found is a refreshing Zelda-with-guns. nice to play, not too taxing. Gives you a lot of freedom."
Used & New from: 64.97
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)
