The best role-playing game ever created. All of its elements are beyond stasifying and I found that every hour I put into it was well worth the dedication, EVEN if the entire video game was comprised of Japanese dialogue.
It's only substantial rivals are Secret Of Mana, Lufia 2, Illusion Of Gaia, Soulblazer, and Terranigma. There are so many more that I could mention as well. All on the SNES, the only system that you could ever say that time was spent on creating its games that was for the purpose of creating a lovable game that people could grow up treasuring.
