Soul Blazer
#28: Soul Blazer

Released In: 1992
Developer: Quintet
Publisher: Enix

      One day the greedy King Magridd, ruler of the Freil Empire, made a pact with Deathtoll, the King of Evil. Deathtoll offered the king one gold piece for each soul that the king would let him take. Magridd allows him to take every soul of every living thing, leaving his kingdom empty. Then Magridd disappears too. The Master sees this, and sends a hero to free all the souls that Deathtoll has imprisoned in his monster lairs as well as to collect the six magic stones needed to enter the World of Evil and defeat Deathtoll once and for all.

Syd Lexia: Quintet's lost classic. Most SNES-era gamers remember how great Illusion of Gaia and ActRaiser were, but they don't talk about Soul Blazer quite as much. But among hardcore gamers such as the ones that compiled this list, Soul Blazer is an enduring favorite that never gets old.

Valdronius: This game holds a special place for me, so it makes me happy to see it ranked this high. In each level you start off in an empty town, but as you defeat enemies, you release the souls of villagers who often hold the keys you need to progress further into the game. The concept intrigued me, so I decided to seek out other games like it. This was the first game that really got me into adventure/RPG hybrid games, and for that I am eternally grateful.
