Nintendo and SqareSoft (now Square-Enix) were the biggest influences in my gaming habits, with much love going to, well, you'll see.

Final Fantasy VI (III back then) was just epic, and still is the gold standard of RPG characters for me. Terra does not show up in enough of the Final Fantasy mash-ups SE has been putting out.

Chrono Trigger was the first to really show of the consequences of choice with all the time travel.

Super Metroid is the yardstick by which I judge all platformers (even Mario), only a few games measure up (the other Metroid games for instance, and recently Shadow Complex). Perfect shooting, moving and exploring all in a creepy-cool alien world.

EarthBound: The most wonderfully nonsensical RPG I never got around to buying! :'( Even today when Mother 3 was announced I was frothing with anticipation for Nintendo to bring it over, then crying in my pillow when they didn't.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past: This defined Zelda, more than any other in the series. Everything is built on this one. ALttP was the biggest leap in the series until it went 3D (and even then was mainly an extension of this one). I'd get 3D.Game Heroes if it was coming to the 360 for more Zelda style thrills.

Every RPG I play I look for the characters of FFVI, the choice of CT, the fun of EB and the exploration of SM and ALttP.
