Recommend a deep, mature JRPG for me.

Some good suggestions in this topic. If I had to suggest only one, I would pass over my beloved Atlus games and suggest (like many others have) Xenogears. It might be the deepest, darkest RPG I have ever played.

It didn't receive the budget it deserved, but IMHO it still stands alone.

Those here saying to ignore it, or that it's overrated, are (IMO) confused/mistaken.

Give it a shot, you have nothing to lose except a few bucks and some of your time.

Persona 3 FES (or Portable, if you have a PSP)

Persona 4

Possibly SMT Nocturne, depending on your definition of deep.

I'd recommend the following:

Valkyrie Profile - I really enjoyed Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on the PSP, which I understand is an updated version of the ps1 game. I did not care for Silmeria as much on the ps2, though.

Chrono Trigger - Very great game. It is a bit old, but it is not showing its age at all. It has a great story, deep characters, each with their own history, and the way everything fits together is brilliant. Plus, it has quite a few endings for replay value.

Star Ocean - I'll admit, I've only played Star Ocean: Second Departure to completion, although I am a good chunk of the way through the first one. Second Departure starts out pretty light-hearted, although before too long things start to get somewhat serious. I'm not sure I'd call it a 'deep, mature' game, but it is a bit more so than the average JRPG.

Coming from someone with "jenova" as his username.

There are plenty of mature JRPG's.

Xenosaga is deeper honestly, though it suffers from pacing/budget issues just as much as Xenogears.

It's a really good game, but disc 2 just craps on everything.

Dark Souls/Dragons Dogma type route


Not JRPGs.

This gen in terms of dark JRPGs, you have a choice between these 3 games:

Nier
Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll
Resonance of Fate

Oh I am a great fan of the Xenosaga trilogy! I couldn't pick just one game out of the three to recommend to TC or anyone else, and I don't think any of the individual games stand out enough over Xenogears. As a trilogy, though, I think it is fantastic. Episode II can be tough going at first, but it's worth sticking with it. Personally I have always enjoyed Episode I the most.
