Be aware that you're treading on very thin ice...

The games being discussed in this thread are all commercial games, which means they're for sale (and, as far as I know, you can't legally download them, and certainly not for free). I usually buy them either at HimeyaShop or PaletWeb, personally. There's also a "Where to buy Japanese games?" thread that may be of interest to you.

Be aware that they're not cheap either -- some games cost close to $90 or so at HimeyaShop. There are other companies that sell translated games such as Hirameki for instance, but even still the number of good games commercially available in English is small.

Going back to the topic, I've been playing (or watching, rather) Hourglass of Summer as of late. Wish I didn't have to play it on my DVD Player though.....

Rip the DVD and run it with VLC. You'll have to put up with some minor glitches, but it's a lot better than running the game on an actual DVD player.

The only thing wrong is that your save file is in the form of a password that you input to continue...
And if you lose that password...

Aside from the two, there's also Eien no Aseria and...

Maybe Tenkuu no Sinfonia?

Maybe Eternal Fantasy, Prism Ark or Tears to Tiara? The list can be made much longer but those are three that I've enjoyed most.

Oh yeah, I forgot those games. They're definitely good. How about Izumo, Castle Fantasia, Men at Work, or any of AliceSoft's games?

EDIT: Holy crap, does Mio Kifune (of ExE) and Yuuhi Katagiri (of Akane-iro) have the same voice actress?

Yes, the flame haze ripoff and the tsundere ojou-sama are voiced by the same VA.

I don't read Japanese, so my choices are limited obviously. I have played Tsukihime and the first arc of Fate/Stay Night though, courtesy of mirror moon's translation team (which kicks ass btw, but they're being real slow on the 2nd arc release, unfortunately. ).

I was really wanting to play Kimi ga Nozomu Eien after watching the anime a while ago, but afaik no one has translated this game? I'd love to buy it, but it would be kinda worthless if there was no fan translation like mirror moon does. Anyone know if there's been any effort to translate this game?

As far as I know, there aren't any - sorry. Maybe in the future a group of fansubbers/programmers will do a fan translation. But at least there are dedicated groups that are finished with their respective projects like the fine folks at Mirror Moon, and hopefully they'll release the translation for the other routes in Fate/Stay Night.

First of all thanks @ all people who gave me recommendations for rpg titles.

Now to your question Dxon, I dunno if you know Japanese, if not I'd recommend you checking the titles on this list:
