    I would argue don't play Etrian Odyssey 5 or Extrian Odyssey Nexus; the formula is much better in 1-4.

    I would advice not to skip any EO game except mystery dungeon + EO1. Nexus+5 are good games

    What’s a good game to start with for beginners? I’ve played some of the Etrian Odysseys before but I’m interested in trying something different.

    Elminage Original isn't too difficult, so it might be a decent one to try out.

    Some ideas:
    Wizardry: Labryinth of the Lost Souls: definitely not the best out there, but in terms of teaching original Wizardry kind of standpoints it is pretty traditional with only the original eight classes, spells etc..One difference from the original is that it adds some pretty OP special skills for some of the classes. Presentation style is pretty anime so be aware of that if that is a turn off.
    Elminage Original: If you don't care about original classes, this game has a lot of depth without being too hard early on for complete novices (Elminage Gothic is a great game but maybe a little more difficult to begin with).
    Operation Abyss: Experience Inc remake of Wizardry Xth, it has a lot of the basics but suffers from all the issues that with the Experience Inc games.

    I also would say Wizardry 1. It's a short but very well designed dungeon. The one that started it all and still one of the best.

    SNES version has very good graphics and improved interface.

    Anybody know the mechanics/calcs for hiding/staying hidden in the SNES Wizardry 1-3? Probably the same as 5 but I can't find that either.

    I couldn't find a copy a few days ago but it seems it's available now. I'll report back shortly.

    Edit: it seems to emulate just fine, at least on Yuzu/Vulkan. I noticed one brief graphical effect that may have been bugged but I made it to the first save point no problem. The game is locked at 30 and when unlocked, movement speed, menus, most cutscenes/videos and animations are sped up, but not audio or battles themselves (prompts when attacking etc). The game appears relatively slow at 30 fps, so I reckon a good compromise would be to lock it to 60 which would speed it up while not making it uncontrollable. It ran at 120-170 fps for me when unlocked which was just too fast.

    You can import custom portraits, and that is what you're seeing here. So yeah, they're not in the game.

    I want to have a nice conversation with the person who thought having one-time use maps in the games is a good idea. At least the maps in Elminage Gothic were dirtcheap...

    Based devs. Either you draw the map or stop being a jew.
    Can't use any cheat to have infinite maps like in Elminage?

    Nevermind it's actually balanced. There's a literal coin enemy you can fight as many times as you want that drops a lot of gold(literally named Creeping Coin)

    Creeping Coins are one of my favorite enemies from the series. I think they were unique to Wizardry, right?
