    Hello! I Have an PC and I ran out of games and I checked the store and there was very expensive games. So I decided to buy something like retro Japanese game for my pc. Do you have any recommendations?
    I Prefer action, rpg or a cute one.

    Sorry for bad English.

    If you don't mind hentai you could check out Tears to Tiara, which a very good real time srpg by any standard.

    Touhou is a bullet hell game. It's for Windows. And it's free. It's also really hard.
    You should try touhou.

    I actually tried to collect every Japanese PC games i could find some time ago. There are games like silent hill 2, 3 and 4, MGS2, Onimusha 3, sega rally, sonic advanetures,out run 2006, space channel, shadow of memories, dynasty warriors games in the PS2 age.

    Back then for PS1 Age there came out games like Resident evil 1-3, D, Enemy Zero, Panzer Dragon, Breath of fire 4, FF 7&8, Metal gear solid 1 and special mission cd, Virtua fighter 2. There are also various kind of 2d fighters. For 16 bit age there arent many games since PC became only stronger after the home Computers died of like amiga or the FM towns.

    This gen i can really recommend buying last remnant its only 10€ now and is one of the best jrpgs this generation, at least for the pc version which got almost any issue fixed.

    I have found loads of cool games to collect i was going to make a post about it as i also asked this question last year.

    Most people seem to answer this question with a list of doujin and tohou junk with a shit load of games you can get for just about ever over console.

    Ok so i have not found many actual Japanese games but Japanese releases of u.s and European games.
    most japanese original games seem to be on pc98/88 x68000 msx.


    gurumin pc (also on psp but i prefer to collect the pc copy) i have a collectors edition with book.$25 mint

    redneck rampage (a classic)

    Akimbo kanfu eiyuu

    Story of the Island of Silk Road star (actual retail release somewhat close to the non retail x68000 game called silkroad 2 )

    Alien vs predator

    Trine Ushinawareshi Kodai no Hihou

    Technomage

    i have found some mac games too.

    i will make a post soon.

    Fukkatsu Eggerland is a good one. Doesn't work too well on Windows XP and above, but if you have a Japanese 95/98 setup its awesome. I also liked the Hydlide 1 and 3 remakes.

    I knew some Japanese PC Games were NECPC Games : NEC was one the main companies which developped on PC......

    I'd forgotten Breath of Fire 3 and 4 were released on PC : the graphics are very different than Ps1 versions ?

    Also, in another topic, I searched some people which have some informations about Japanese PC Games (without counting Hentai or Touhou Games) : if you have some ones :).......

    LOL Good luck with that!
    Most of them are simply western games by western software houses, japanese releases. No thanks. I think that MrAlextov meant and wanted genuine japanese games. There are actually some really good doujin(ish) titles that deserve to be collected imho plus a plethora of not-doujin japanese pc titles, it's just that infos about them are so scattered it's very patience and time consuming to list them.
    You found the right guy, what do you want to know? ;)

    All the games i list are genuine japanese games or japanese versions... but you both want genuine japanese made pc games released only in japan... is this correct?

    I will try to add more japanese only games to my thread.but i think collecting japanese versions and original japanese pc games complement each other well...if that makes any sense :)

    Myloch
    Please let us know these doujin(ish) games and please list some genuine japanese pc games
    that you have found.

    There are some interesting doujin titles from Msd Japan's Gameland/Gameland 2000 series, Daiso Japan and Unbalance budget series.
    I'm personally now waiting for my latest order including: Golf Taikai (Koei), Golf ~Coast course hen ~ (Ksk), Animal race ( アニマルレース), Missile Action (ミサイルアクション), Mouja (fps), Jikkyō powerful pro yakyuu 96 (Konami).

    Edit:

    Yeah i have seen those. Some of the games released under Msd & Msd Gameland are made by professional companys like compile and some are clearly doujin made games like Mechanical brain & Nekomata detective agency.

    Sounds good. I have never heard of animal race or Mouja.
