I seem to have a craving for pc-98 games recently. And am wondering what you guys like in terms of the Japanese retro scene?

Howdy mushmouth!
I know I already told ya some of these on tilde.town IRC, but gonna put them here anyway.

I haven't played the original PC-98 version but the DOS port of Princess Maker II is really cool.

I can't really recommend any other PC-98 games, but I can recommend a few PC-88 games. Some of these I haven't played much in their original form, but have played ports that are almost exactly the same.
Sword of Adventure
The Scheme
Popful Mail
Sorcerian
Ancient Ys Vanished
Silpheed
Zeliard
Jesus: Kyōfu no Bio Monster
Revolter
Klax
Gradius
FSD Sample Music Collection <-- Cool music disk collection

All of these should be in the "Retro NEC PC-8801 Game Colection" set on The ISO Zone.

Pardon the bump but I've been downloading PC98 disk images (outside of H-Games with little to no gameplay, mahjong and card titles) from Internet Archive's PC98メーカー別詰め合わせ (PC98 Collection, Sorted by Publisher) set.
TOSEC's set is missing even more games than Maker Betsu's, which are mostly taken from Perfect Dark.

Haven't been DLing any recently, but still...

My Japanese isn't perfect but even so, I'm more interested in the Adventure games and RPGs (shmups too, especially if they're not 2hu lol)

my question is, does anybody have some hot FM-7 recommendations??


but yeah, the japanese retro computer scene is an area of video games that has the biggest glaring hole in my knowledge (that i know of) and i'd like to fix that
