I got up to the final boss in Golden Sun 1 but didn't much care for the game at all... For some reason it just felt very... Generic Anime RPG-like to me, in a hard-to-explain sort of way.
I mean, some JRPGs just stand out dramatically, like the Final Fantasy series, for their own unique sort of style... but then there are other ones that all use the Generic Anime Style and all feel the same to me, like Golden Sun, Grandia, and loads of other forgettable ones... It is CERTAINLY just my preference here, but it's why I didn't find the game very engaging.
But even so... I never played the second one, so maybe I should give it a chance at least. Hmm. Maybe I'll get a ROM of it later...

Hmmm.... Golden Sun is a tad generic at times definitely. I dunno, you may be right. I didn't feel like I played it as an RPG but more as an exploration kinda game. Speaking of ROM, I happen to have the Golden Sun 2 ROM, so if you are willing to try it out then feel free to ask me to email it to you or something.
