I heard Tales of Xilla is pretty good but what other JRPGs should I get(including ones on the PSN store only)
ADD my Pokemon Y FC: 3668-8145-2937 looking for someone with Pokemon X to trade starters,spares,exclusives,etc.

Ni no Kuni is all you need.
#3minecraftPosted 11/19/2013 12:28:45 AM
ni no kuni and preorder FFX remastered

If you are a mature adult and you require a JRPG with complexity, avoid Ni No Kuni. it's far too basic and feels like the Fisher Price of JRPGs. Ni No Kuni is an insult to JRPGs.
I would agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

Just play PS1 and 2 games you haven't done already, they will be way better than pretty much any PS3 game.

NNK is the best JRPG on PS3 and it isn't wonderful, terrible combat system.

If you haven't played Vagrant Story, then do that. I played it for the first time recently and it just massacres every current gen game in terms of story and interesting game mechanics and atmosphere. So many holy **** moments and killer tone.

Plus the characters emote more and look cooler than today's JRPGs where the characters are lifeless anime dolls (FF, Tales)

1 - Tales of XIllia
2- Resonance of Fate
3- Tales of Graces F
4- Final Fantasy XIII-2 (stories not that good, but gameplay is superb)
5- Star Ocean 4

These all offer the best gameplay experiences in my opinion.Also get Valkyria Chronicles if you can. I also think Eternal Sonata is a game you should experience, but overall it isn't as strong as the ones I listed.

1) Legend of Dragoon(PS1-PSN)
2) Front Mission 3 (PS1-PSN). Sadly, Front Mission 4 not release in PSN I think nor HD, 5 is Japanese and I never play it, hoping it got translate seem impossible.
3) Chrono Cross and Trigger (PS1-PSN)
4) Persona series.(PS2-PSN but for 4th, try to get the PSVita since it is the exclusive upgrade package).
5) White Knight Chronicle 2 since it got 1 re-mastered in one disc. Not sure if the server for WKC2 is up but if it is, online is great,

Other than that which I don't think exist in PSN store (yet I think) are my favorite PS2 games and some PS1; Shadow Heart (1-3), Xenosaga (1-3 although third seem to skip many story due to internal problem of Namco), Wild Arm, Tales series, Mana series, Ateliar series and Suikoden series. I think there are more I could name but it been a long time already.

When I said I have a bug problem, I don't mean I have a bug problem. I refer to my game and no, bug spray doesn't fix it. (x_x)

1 - Tales of XIllia
2- Resonance of Fate
3- Tales of Graces F
