What about Leather Goddesses of Phobos???? (just kidding)
I probably would have added 'Shining in the Darkness' from the Sega Genesis at the least.A ton of great Sega games were left out of this. Most likely the author just didn't play them -a shame.
And to respond to another post. I agree that many of the Japanese RPGs that never made it over to the states are true classics. The Ys series and Legend of Heroes are two good examples.... But you can't be unhappy with the author for that.
