i just recently bought a ps3 and wondering what to get for my first jrpg for ps3. i know that ff13 is better by review standards but the 20hrs before it gets good kinda ticks me off and i don't play rpg's with female leads ( i don't have anything against women but i prefer my protagonists as male since i visualize myself as the lead), which one should i get for my first ps3 jrpg? thanks for the advice guys

SO has a terrible story and great gameplay.

FF XIII has a terrible story and terrible gameplay.

Hard to say.

SO4 has the better battle system and gameplay in general going for it, but I can't really say that the characters or story are any better than XIII.

Tales of graces f-the better star ocean.

But if I had to choose between those games I would get FF13

Neither. Get Valkyria Chronicles and Tales of Graces f.

This, in all honesty.

Graces f is even better in battle system than SO4 and at least has some enjoyable characters.

Both games are awful but at least Star Ocean has a fun combat system. If story is important to you then you should avoid both games like the plague.

I would suggest you get White Knight Chronicles 2 as your first PS3 JRPG. It's a fun game that also includes the first game. The story is pretty typical but it is a hell of a lot better than Star Ocean or FF XIII.
