C/D: The last great JRPG to come out was Final Fantasy X.

In general, JRPGs were much better before FFX than after, but there have definitely been some fantastic ones released since then. Off the top of my head Persona 3/4 and Tales of Vesperia were phenomenal and were all released more recently.
This is my signature.

I could go on...

None of those are better than Final Fantasy X, though. DQ VIII and THe Last Story and maybe even Baten Kaitos might be neck and neck with X, but every one of those games on those list either just suck or aren't anywhere as good as X

Except...Last Story is pretty much the worst game on that list.

Imo FFXII was one of the greatest jrpg's ever made.

Otoh of all the jrpg's I've played this gen I've only finished two. Resonance of Fate and Atelier Rorona.

Oh yeah, and Lost Odyssey. That was epic.
My favorite app is still the Mute button on my TV's remote.

Too many great examples this generation and post X for this to be even a plausible position. Both P3/4 came out after that, and XII, This gen has Tales of Vesperia/Lost Odyssey.

Emphatically deny.

Eh I think Last Story was better than NieR and Dragengard 2. I just couldn't get into NieR.
#46AntonSaidWhatPosted 12/24/2012 4:28:37 PM
Lost Odyssey.

D. Xenoblade Chronicles.

I don't expect this post to get a lot of love, since this is on the PS3 board, but Xenoblade Chronicles.

FFX was ass

D. Square isn't the only company capable of making good JRPGs. With their current rate of quality, I'm glad they aren't.
What's wrong with the world these days is people don't have any common sense...
