Robotman’s Cheap Classic JRPG Calendar 2024

It’s calendar time again.  And this is for me to put on my wall in a more respectable way than one with robot porn on it.

So far in my calendars, I’ve done all the major game consoles, home computers, and even some peripherals like controllers.  I need a new calendar this coming year, and I’m pretty much out of classic consoles and computers.  I really scraped the bottom of the barrel with some of them anyway, so now it’s time to change gear.

In 2024, I’ll be looking at the box art from some of my favourite JPRPs that I’ve played.  I mentioned how I’ve been playing many games of that genre recently, so why not.  The games in this showcase are:

  • Questron (Commodore 64)
  • Dragon Warrier (AKA Dragon Quest, Nintendo Entertainment System)
  • Phantasy Star (Sega Master System)
  • Lunar: The Silver Star (Sega CD)
  • Vay (Sega CD)
  • Phantasy Star IV (Sega Genesis)
  • Lunar: Eternal Blue (Sega CD)
  • Grandia (PlayStation)
  • Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure (PlayStation)
  • Grandia II (Dreamcast)
  • Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia (PlayStation 2)
  • Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Endless Frontier (Nintendo DS)

That first one isn’t a JRPG, but it’s an Ultima clone, and computer games like Ultima inspired the whole genre of JRPGs back in the 80s.  So there.

This calendar isn’t really special or meaningful to anyone but me, but I do recommend playing all the games on that list.
