    Hi Kevin, I loved these episodes, it’s a topic near and dear to me!

    A few comments:

    #1. Breath of Fire 3 is really underrated! Some of the sprite-work is SO impressive; there are so many specific little character animations that are only used once or twice. (also…I love the OST so much)

    #2 . FF Tactics is, I think, the most playable (and re-playable) PS1 JRPG , from today’s perspective. I’ve beaten the game repeatedly, most recently last year. Play the PSP version!

    #3. Parasite Eve is absolutely a JRPG! ….but it’s far from the BEST on PS1!! 😉

    PS VANDAL HEARTS actually holds up too IMO;
    at least check out some combat videos on youtube to watch the geysers of blood spew!
