of this gen?

Just curious, love JRPGs but the story has to be well done for me to invest 50+ hours.

thanks in advance.
Playing: Nier, Kid Icarus: Uprising
Reading: The Waste Lands: The Dark Tower III

I thought the story was fantastic. Completely gripping from the start and well-paced with some great twists. The characters are also great and they act with intelligence according to their situation. There's no badass bull****.

Man, I just love this game, there's just so much good to say about it, I could go on forever. You've gotta play it!

Well, it isn't Xenogears, but it definitely is better than the majority of JRPG stories I've played this gen.

I think its the plots intentions to be 'passť'. I mean, this IS a love letter of sorts to the old school JRPG. I don't think that should be a knock on it at all.

How does it compare to some of the classic JRPGs like Chrono Trigger?
