Ditto on BG&E. Very good game.
Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter - PS2
Shame on Capcom for writing probably the worst videogame manual ever. Not only are things poorly explained, but some things are explained incorrectly. I mean, what the manual says is opposite of what exists in the game. Whatever the case, it's an enjoyable dungeon crawler/RPG with one of the better battle systems for the genre. Though the game is very linear, a guide is an absolute must, if only to understand the nuances of the Restore/Restart system. Clean graphics, great music, and a subdued but interesting story have made it well worth my time. The fact that I picked it up for $15 doesn't hurt either.
