Has anyone else not liked any JRPG stories this gen? I really liked Persona 3 & 4 but technically they were released on the PS2. I don't know if it's an age thing or if the writing has gotten worse (I'm sure nostalgia glasses are a factor) but I've found every JRPG for the PS3 cheesy and painful to sit through. It's still my favorite genre, but I wish they would hire better writers.

Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii).

Now my 2nd favourite RPG of all time.

Same. FF XIII has some really great parts. I can see why people don't like the story or even the game itself but the intense, almost crazed hatred towards the game makes people look like drama queens.

Ni no kuni, the ending isn't that great but the game itself is great.

NIER. Those who have played all the endings knows this. Its really hard to say if its the best game story of all time, but most depressive and heart-wrenching for sure. Cult classic already.

Xenoblade, Pandora's Tower, Resonance of Fate, Radiant Historia... theres plenty i have enjoyed. Ni No Kuni apparently has high quality story too as expected, haven't played it yet.

Though there is lots of b-grade anime garbage too, cant deny that. But if you cant enjoy any of the stories from games mentioned so far, maybe this genre is not for you.

I second Ni No Kuni.

I thought Xenoblades simple story was kinda cool. Sort of a Xeno lite, a great game to start on if you want to further explore the Xeno universe.

Best one for me is probably Nier. New game+ in that game is just horrible. It's like the developers hate you and feel the need to make you suffer. Man I love that game. Hope Drakengard gets a HD collection some day.

Hnnnng Nier.

It just makes you feel so terrible and dead inside. It's amazing.
Plus there's a hermaphrodite(Kaine).

Probably BDFF, but I played that just about two months ago.

I see so much love for Nier, makes me wish I didn't pass up on it. Perhaps I should look into picking it up sometime soon...
