Into the Wasteland (荒野の果てへ)

by wfgodbold

Wild Arms orginally came out not long after the PlayStation first launched (it was later remade for the PS2); instead of having mostly medieval trappings, like most RPGs of the time, it was set on a world called Filgaia (or Falgaia), where guns and deserts and magic were prevalent.

This blend of spaghetti western elements with traditional fantasy (for there were still kings and princesses and castles about, if you looked for them) made for an excellent game, and Wild Arms was well received.

The music, too, was evocative of spaghetti westerns, especially those scored by Ennio Morricone.
