Fans of this game already remember the title screen fanfare music.
How about Crystalis?
I think its somewhat more popular on /vr/ but overall man this game is overlooked. Like a much better polished Zelda with light RPG elements and some post-apocalyptic influence in the setting.
If you see they did rewrite it in plain text underneath... in Japan it was called Arabian Dream: Scheherezade.
I haven't found many exploration-focused games I've enjoyed as much as Legacy of the Wizard. The dungeon is huge, diverse, and takes some thought to properly navigate.
I'm also surprised at how frequently Solar Jetman is overlooked. It's an incredible game, and I'm not aware of anything else out there much like it.
I've always been a little curious as to why they had both turn-based and action-based combat in The Magic of Scheherazade. I don't think the game suffers for it, I just wonder what exactly the thought process there was.
Holy Diver for the Famicom is a great, even though it's difficulty brought me nearly to tears.
And while we are at the topic of games being better than Zelda.
Golden Axe Warrior
Both on the Master System. Ofcourse it's easy to improve on the inventor, but that doesn't make these games any less good.
