What are the best Japanese PS3 games?

#1shooterfan22Posted 1/23/2012 6:15:31 PM
I just found out that the PS3 is region free so I'm wondering which Japanese games are the best.

Yakuza Kenzan!
Gundam Senki
Gundam Extreme VS
Initial D Extreme Stage
Wangan Midnight
Id@lmaster 1 & 2
Sengoku Basara 3 Utage
*Tales of Vesperia
*Red Seeds Profile
Tales of Xillia



also:

2nd Wizardry game
Sengoku Basare Utage
Tears to Tiara
Tears to Tiara Gaiden
A.C.E.R
Warriors Orochi Z
Boku no Natsuyasumi 3
Spelunker Black
Pro Baseball Spirits series
Class of Heroes 2G
Class of Heroes 3

not much really. Most Japanese games have come over here. First 10 are the best imo


(*indicates an XBox U.S./EU version optional.)

Everything else is basically visual novels (since SCEA doesn'r recognize them as 'games' (Unimeko, Steins;Gate, White Album, 428, Megazone, Dunamis15, Beyond the Future, Clannad, Hakuoki, Suigetsu Ni etc) . Mahjong games, Pachislot games (slot machines) MMOs (Uncharted Waters Online, Angel Love Online, Angel Senki, Nobunaga Online, Dynasty Warriors Online) some historical simulation games (Nobunaga with Power up Kit), some older Champion Jockey games (Winning Post 7) and NieR Replicant (Japanese version of NieR)

Anything beyond that is coming to the U.S. or EU anyway (except probably Super Robot Wars Original Generations, Gundam Unicorn and Gal*Gun)

DmC is GOTY.

PolishSovereign posted...
Metal Gear Solid 4
Bayonetta
Dark Souls
Demons Souls


Those games are available in the U.S.




Anyways, like I said, most major games are over here save for several NamcoBandai releases (they really are the most stubbornly stingy developers) and a few of Sega's.

Yakuza Kenzan!: Amazing game
Gundam Senki: No
Gundam Extreme VS: Great game
Initial D Extreme Stage: No
Wangan Midnight: No
Id@lmaster 1 & 2: Fun game, but too many versions out on disc!
Sengoku Basara 3 Utage: Utage is nothing special.
*Tales of Vesperia: Great game
*Red Seeds Profile: Fun game but nothing too special
2nd Wizardry game: Same as first, no real changes.
Tears to Tiara: Fun but nothing special
Tears to Tiara Gaiden: Same as above
A.C.E.R: Boring after a while
Warriors Orochi Z: Orochi Musou 2 is better (it`s coming to the west though soon)
Boku no Natsuyasumi 3: Kinda boring unless you`re Japanese.
Spelunker Black (PSN): Amazing, a real challenge
Pro Baseball Spirits series: Baseball games where if you enjoy the teams and know the players you`d enjoy it!
Class of Heroes 2G: Need to be a fan of Old School RPG`s and walls of text
Class of Heroes 3: Same as above.


Best list of games would be:
Ryu ga Gotoku: Kenzan! (Listed above)
Tales of Xillia (A great Tales game regardless of what people say)
Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru 11th Suspect (Another great Visual Novel/Mystery game. I own the Vita version and it is great if you enjoy novellas and multiple endings, 61 endings lol)
One Piece: Kaizoku Musou (If you enjoy One Piece and Dynasty Warriors, you`re in for a treat come this march)
Malicious (I heard it was coming to the wets but no more news from it, this is PSN only and it is such an awesome game. Cheap too!)
Gladiator VS (This isnt an amazing game but it`s fun and cheap as hell lol)

There`re are games like Ni no Kuni which I would mention (because the game is so damn awesome!!!) but it`s coming to the west at some point so I wont mention it!
