The once RPG-barren PlayStation library is now bountiful, so finding one better than Star Ocean shouldn't be too difficult. Xenogears should be a good starting point. Only the most die-hard and desperate RPG fans will put up with all of the game's negatives to get to the more redeemable parts. All others should save their time and money. Come to think of it, isn't Final Fantasy VIII right around the corner?
