JRPG's - I want in on the fun.


Recommended Posts

Now, I ve always heard such fantastic things about how deep character interaction and story can be in the games of our eastern friends, but Ive never played anything else than FF 7 (very briefly)

 

 

I understand most are for consoles, but arent there any good ones for PC? Care to recommend any?

If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

The only ones I know of on the PC are.

 

FF VII

FF VIII

Grandia II

 

Considering you can pick up a PS2 for next to nothing that is what I would do.

I have to agree with Volourn.  Bioware is pretty much dead now.  Deals like this kills development studios.

Anachronox is in the same style as 'console RPGs', but it has actually good writing. Hilarious game.

 

I'd recommend getting this first.

 

Otherwise, as said before. FFVII, FFVIII, Grandia2.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

:p

 

FFVII

Septerra Core

Anachranox

 

Only FF was made in Japan, but the rest have the same style. And happen to be better than most Japanese made JRPGs.

 

How about that.

 

Also, I find FFVIII really crappy. Grandia 2 is overwhelmingly mediocre. I wouldn't play those.

Get an SNES emulator and play Tales of Phantasia, Star Ocean and Chrono Trigger.

And while you're at it try Ogre Battle, a tactical RPG where you

There was only one JRPG series that I liked for some odd reason and that was Lunar 1 and Lunar 2.

Best console RPG series, bar none.

 

Now, if only it actually had good gameplay :devil: Something like the Grandia series' battle system. It boggles the mind how those two series could be made by the same company and have such divergence in enjoyability of their combat system.
