What are some of the better stories in JRPGs?

I loved Symphonia, too. Probably the best Tales. Also,

-Tales of the Abyss
-FFX, my favorite FF
-Xenogears. I didn't really have a problem with the second disk, but I didn't hear it was supposedly rushed/not completed until years after I played it. If I had, maybe I would have been less satisfied.
-Kessen 3-I'm not sure if this would classify as an RPG, but the story was really good.

Every game by Yasumi Matsuno.

FFT is by far the best, if you are using the WOTL translation.

Anybody that says Tales of Vesperia is just... wrong. Sorry. The story in that game is unconscionably bad. It's not just "not one of the better stories in JRPGs," it's so ****ing terrible that it makes me question your whole list.

This is coming from a guy who holds Tales of Symphonia as one of his favorite games ever.

I agree with you. Symphonia had the best story in the series (from what I've played). Vesperia wasn't great, but I still loved the game for what it was.

Persona 4, I never played 3 but I hear a lot of praise for it. That's a game that goes into a very weird world and shies away from typical RPG cliches.


you should play Persona 3. imo, it's darker than P4


Ending made me want to flip a table until I took a moment to consider everything I'd seen.

Anyway, all the new Personas have been awesome. Its been a great evolution of the franchise. I'm really hoping Persona 5 ends up being a PS3/360 game and not a handheld.


can't wait for Persona 5. I'm sad SMT4 went handheld.

Would rather have P5 being on PS3/Wii U
