You have played them all man. Ni no kuni comes out the 22nd and looks amazing. If you have a wii get Xenoblade and the last story, they are EASILY the best jrpg's this gen.


I haven't played TLS yet, but I would only call XC the best story reliant RPG this gen. There were a buttload of other great RPGs that didn't rely on story for appeal and were better.


JRPG is what TC is looking for, "J" being the key.


Yeah:

Resonance of Fate

Shiren and Shiren Wii

Etrian Odyssey 1-3

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and Tri

Rune Factory 3

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Pokemon HG/SS, B/W 1&2

PS0, PSP2(haven't played the first one, so I can't vouch for it)

Are these not Japanese?

I don't know how someone can list a DS game and say this gen was garbage for JRPGs. I'd expect that from a console hermit, but not someone with either portable.

I suppose if you love pokemon or ports of old DQ and FF games then you would be right.

Have you not played any of the DS games I listed above? Also, along with those, Infinite Space and Dragon Quest 9?

If not, feel bad for you.

They are indeed. I would say only monster hunter and pokemon are the only ones that don't suck out of all those however. And none are as good as the ones I mentioned. All opinion of course. If you enjoy them than I am glad for you.

You have..horrible taste.

XBC beats all of those, but all of Sin's games destroy TLS.

They're all better than XC, except for perhaps RoF and PS0.

XC was great, but it started getting really tedious from when Shulk got all of his moves until you get Anti-Mechon weapons.

Absurdly tedious.

I can't seem to find where you listed them and I would love to get some good recommendations. I have DQIX and I love it!

Etrian Odyssey 1-3

Shiren(DS)

PS0

Pokemon

SMT:SJ

Rune Factory 3

Those are all Japanese and for DS. SMT is the only one that somewhat relies on story. I wouldn't say it's a main draw for it though.

My top 5 JRPG 's are - 1. DQVIII 2. Xenogears 3. Persona 3 4. FFXII 5. Tales of symphonia. If you still think I have horrible taste than we have what is known as "different" taste. Neither of us have horrible taste.
