So many people are tossing around the "Revival of JRPGs" bs when the genre has been around, just not it's strongest. There have been many crap games coming out on all systems and just weren't were the time or effort to play (Hyper Dimensia Neptunia, Trinity Universe.. etc) So what were your favorite JRPGS this generation? For the sake of arguement, I'm going to please ask we keep SRPGS out of the conversation.
#1. Star Ocean Last Hope It was the first game I ever 100% on the 360, and am playing through the special edition on the PS3. Something about this game, the graphics, the characters, the game play worked on every level for me.
#2. XenoBlade I waited for years for this game and was not disappointed.. it's.. MASSIVE.
#3. Lost Odyssey I felt this game was the true heir to the Final Fantasy throne, and is what FF12 and 13 should have been.
#4. Tales of Vesperia The FIRST Tales game I loved, before this I played Legendia and.. that game almost ruined the series for me
#5. Blue Dragon Quirky, fun little game. Loved the combat and gameplay, job system was quite fun to play around with and the mix and match abilities.
With this list, I would like to point out I did not place Ni No Kuni on there since I am still working through it, but it is definitely in the top three and probably the #3 spot. Also, I do own every RPG released from the PS2 onward, many sadly I've not gotten around to open and play yet due to IRL stress/problems. (I did not buy any SRPGS though)
The patience it takes to play FFXI and EQ is the patience it takes to kill yourself by bashing your head into a wall.
