hmm I'm confused, what's more interesting than "Save the princess, fight the boss, save the world?"
how about Azure Dreams?
This game has some elements from harvest moon and from some RPGs like chocobo dungeon,
you'll have a dungeon to explore and treasure to collect in order for you to build your own place and town also to win some of the girls heart in your town.
I played this game like for months, the funny things is, there is no boss (I haven't found one yet), and it seems there is no ending in this game, I dunno, I haven't gone to the top of the dungeon, I think I need to replay this game, later.
and trust me this game is so addictive if you don't mind the generic graphics, since this is PS1 game.
