I'm currently playing Radiant Historia right now. Awesome old school style RPG

Isn't that on DS? I thought about getting it. I actually found a lot of my old school RPG fixes on the DS.

Yes. It's awesome and it has the whole time travel Chrono Trigger-esque feel to it.

I can relate. I am in the same boat as you more or less. There was kind of a wholesome fun to JRPGs in the SNES and PS1 days. But, both because I have changed and the genre has changed, I just don't feel it anymore. I would like to find a new JRPG that can capture that feeling, but they just don't do it for me. So, Skyrim, Diablo 3 and Deus Ex it will be until Japan gets it act together.

I miss the old ones as well. There's just something different. Something missing.

Get Avadon: The Black Fortress on Steam then, even if you have a mediocre PC you should be able to run it. It's $9.

Pay attention to Kingdom's of Amalur: Reckoning also.

I'm really starting to get sick of that comment. It feels NOTHING like Chrono Trigger. Nothing. A decent game in it's own right, but nowhere near as well done as CT was.

Just get a DS. The only issue is that some of the JRPG's have become more difficult to find.

I like traditional turn-based rpgs and they are pretty much extinct. I don't like the action that so many rpgs use now in their battle system (Tales games, Star Ocean). I like games like Lunar and Grandia. I think Grandia had one of the best battle systems. I never played the US version, but I have the Saturn import from Japan.

They don't even make games like Secret of Mana in the true action-rpg sense. It seems like the PSP mostly, and then the DS have more of the traditional rpg types. I am looking forward to a release of Ninokuni for the PS3 because that game looks beautiful.

Have you tried Eternal Sonata? A lot of people seem to like it, but I didn't like the battle system and the game seemed cheaply hard.
