I just started playing it yesterday, and already have it finished. It sure was a ride, but now that I finally went back into playing games, I plan to play SMRPG, Solatorobo, Goldeneye, and some others. Are there any other retro games you'd recommend?
Solatorobo is a furry rite of passage and I am ashamed I haven't played it yet.
Consider checking out the first 10 Final Fantasies and Dragon Quests 1-9. Don't feel bad about using remakes for FF1&2, I heard Origins retains the Vancian Magic system. As for DQ, remakes improve on each game, very recommended, also 10 is an MMO and 11 isn't retro but is still good.
I mean, I've already kinda played Solatorobo, but I haven't gone past the first half of the game, since I actually lost the original save due to a hard drive corruption. Hopefully it never happens again, and I still want to finish it, so I'm still holding myself off of watching videos of it or reading spoilers. Also I will consider playing the Final Fantasy games and Dragon Quest games you mentioned, since I've heard they were pretty great.
