One of my favorite games for the Nintendo Entertainment System (N.E.S.) was the action role-playing game "Crystalis". It was similar to "The Legend of Zelda" but with experience points.
The music in the game was amazing. It had a cool science fiction/fantasy plot. The controls were also really good. My original copy was either misplaced or stolen as I haven't seen it in over 15 years. So when I found a copy at a used video game store for $5.99 I had to pick it up. Even after all these years it's still a fun game. If you get a chance, give it a try and maybe you'll like it too.
