RPG for PS1 with the best story that ISN'T FF related.

#1sarevokmbPosted 1/29/2013 6:15:16 PM
So, what is the best RPG for PS1 in terms of story, characters, setting, etc.?

It doesn't have to be available on PSN, as I have a PS3 as well, to play physical disks.

Thanks for any recommendations!

Xenogears definitely. Sometimes the game feels like a visual novel though so be prepared to read a lot of text.

The Suikoden series

Unfortunately it's not playable on the Vita, however it has the most compelling storyline in the rpg genre. War, love, betrayal, obligation, desire, all encompass this exquisite series.

Xenogears is amazing, but I must also suggest Grandia!
