Most of the Japanese puzzle games, and casual games, of which there are many, can be played easily with a little trial and error. These would be the easiest.

- Short Warp
- Crayon Shin Chan
- Hello Kitty
- Trip D 2.
- Virtual Puppet Reika
- Taiketsu Rooms
- Insector wars.

Fighting games are easy too, naturally:

- Pretty soldier sailormoon s.
- Ultraman
- YuYu Hakusho

Obviously the 'naughty' titles are a doddle too:

- Virtual Cameraman 1 to 5
- Paper Scissors Stone (both versions)

If you know how to play mahjong these games should be easy enough i guess:

- Old Man Hunter.
- Adult version of Mahjong

Some complex(ish) games are practically in English anyway.

- F1GP
- Autobahn Tokio

Some of the more complex games can be played with a little more effort and some common sense. (you would have to stick with it. The difficulty ramps up quickly mind. With Hauzer for example, imagine playing Tomb Raider or Resident Evil in Japanese.

- The Tower
- Dr Hauzer (I made a guide for this based on an older guide)


Sadly the two most enticing RPG's are nearly impossible, as are some interesting looking FMV Games.

- Master Chef
- Blue Forest Story
- Blue Chicago Blue.
- Dragon Tycoon Edge
- Nishimura Kyotarou Travel Mystery
- Hanako Ga Kite.


There are 3 games I can think of, off the top my head, that you can get pretty far into, without having a clue what's going on.

- Belzerion
- Ghost Hunter Series
- Neo Organic Bioform (N.O.B)

What about Pyramid intruder and Royal Wrestling? Do you think they should be on the list also?

Flopon the Space Mutant is rare and I've yet to see a disc image file(s) surface online. I own a real copy and am getting to copy it but if someone really wants it that would help things along.

I don't think the 3DO version of the original Flopon is all that rare. At least, I've seen it pop up frequently enough, and it always sells low--$10 to $15 direct from a Japanese seller on eBay. Still, I agree, it would be nice to get an image out there so others can try it out.
