I generally love 90s Western RPGs, particularly Computer RPGs, which is also what I grew up on when I was younger.
My dad also had some 80s RPGs as well like Ultima and such, but I've never really managed to get into those due to the clunky and convoluted nature of trying to perform what should be simple actions.
I actually wound up skipping out on the PS1 JRPG craze almost entirely when I was younger and didn't start catching up until the PS2 and even then I'm not a big fan of most of them, but I do like some.
Speaking of popular JRPGs, I've played almost all of the Final Fantasy series and the only one I've ever managed to get into is Final Fantasy 6 on SNES.
(Although, I did find Tactics Ogre interesting, so I should give Final Fantasy Tactics a shot.)
