Trying to get my girlfriend into jRPGs

If you ask me Trails in the Sky is a good entry point, gives you a good feel of how JRPGs are.

Persona 3, 4 might be ok (might be a little difficult to, but I think the vita version of 4 makes the game pretty easy). Grandia 2 is always a choice, as its nice and easy as well.

Best not to give her a game with random battles though.

Is this a good entry point? her gaming history is basically platformers like: Little big planet, trine 1 &2, journey. I,d cool to play this together.


If you have a 360, Lost Odyssey was my first JRPG. The only one I've played actually. Don't have money for this game yet.

Anything from the Tales series is always a good. The battle system is simple and fun. Some even have 2 players during battle so you can hope in and help em.

Tales of Graces F. You can play it together!!! That way if she sucks, you can pick up the slack for her. Let her be player 1 controlling exploration, story scenes and dialog. You play player 2 and just lend a helping hand in combat.

ToGF is actually a lot better then many say it is. It's a fantastic JRPG, just not a Fantastic Tales of Game. If she enjoys ToGF, get a 360 and get Tales of Vesperia, a much better game.

This is not a BAD game for her, however it's single player only except for controller sharing for the test of friends and that lame Casino game that is pointless.

Great Introductory RPGs would be Super Mario RPG, Chrono Trigger, or Paper Mario.

If you have a ps2, I would suggest final fantasy x. Great game, plus it's completely turn based so there's less chance of getting overwhelmed at any point.

If you don't, I'd suggest ffix off psn or eternal sonata (only other ps3 jrpg I've played).

Yea, I was going to say Super Mario RPG. If she starts complaining about wanting to "just stomp on the bad guys instead of hitting them over and over with a weapon", RPGs are not for her lol

I would go with Mario RPG (if you have the system). Honestly they don't get much easier, and it would get her used to turn-based fighting.
