On topic, I'll go with classics... Another World, Beneath a Steel Sky if you like adventures, it's freeware now (download from www.scummvm.com, I think). A small jewel.
And... I'll think of more. ^_^;
You can import the European version of Another Code, it has the English language.
NOBODY TOLD ME THIS
what's the quality of the translation?
are there any little things that add meaning to the experience that aren't translated? is there any speech, and if so, what language is that in?
Yeah, I'm interested too.
And, more important, does it have Japanese language option?

heh. I talked all about this on other boards...here too I think.
translation is apparently fine, and the game takes 5 or 6 hours to beat, and is not hard. dunno about japanese option.
I'm not importing, since it's like $60 US before shipping, whereas the US version itself will be $30~40, and basically the same game.
I say get Beyond Good and Evil, which takes 8-10 hours, and is largely wonderful.
I just went and beat BG&E. The ending parts were great. The game almost felt long at some points, but I'm glad I stuck with it... though the pretty visuals and nice audio might've kept me in anyway.
Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
I wonder just what happened at the end with the Domz overlord and Jade... it almost seemed like Jade either took control of the thing, or "came together" with it... But then, Pey'j has the Domz growth on him from being resurrected by Jade... so in fact, the source of the Domz is ultimately Jade, and by "giving them life", she turns them into Domz... I wonder what the Domz priest meant when he said that they gave Shauni a human form... I'm not sure whether or not I want a sequel to it.
End of Spoiler
I heard that it had a similar look to Snatcher...
...btw, I'm playing the SNES one. I tried the Genesis one, and it definitely seems like the better RPG, but something about the SNES one clicks with me, even though it's gameplay is by all rights THIN.
