Recommend a deep, mature JRPG for me.

Drakengard 1 and 2
NIER
Lost Odyssey
Baten Kaitos and Baten Kaitos: Origins
Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross
Xenogears
Xenosaga Trilogy
Nocturne
Digital Devil Saga duology
Persona 3 FES
Suikoden series (except 4)
Final Fantasy Tactics
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy XII
Wild Arms
Radiant Historia
Fire Emblem series
Valkyrie Profile series

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.


Definitely Drakengard. My god, I never knew you could squeeze so many controversial issues into one game!

But I also second Nier.


lol, seriously... pedophilia, incestry, cannibalism, cold-blooded murder...

I played it as a kid and I got freaked the **** out at some parts. Though I never completed it because it was a rental :p

This generation, I would say Lost Odyssey or Xenoblade.

I'd recommend Drakengard as well as Nier. Both have mature themes.

Resonance of Fate isn't cutesy, but I wouldn't quite call it mature. It's a fun adventure with some lighthearted tones.

There isn't really any story until the last two chapters in RoF.

There's a story. You just have a -- no offense -- small idea of what a story is.

None taken. It doesn't really count as a story to me. There are bits and pieces of a story here and there in RoF, but it's mostly little, light-hearted episodes until Chapter 14.

You're not going to find one. For the most part, that style of game is lighthearted. It's rare as hell to find a Xenogears style story. Which is a shame, because the ones that are like Xenogears are some of the most amazing RPGs ever made.

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.
