That is very sad to hear...

From: Tiael | #054It has a story, just not an overarching one, but the individual storylines for each town/area that tie in with the main story.
And I'd argue that's more a throwback to DQIII, and nothing inherently wrong with it.
And that it's not necessarily about the party in DQIX, but more the story about the other characters that populate the world, their trials, their tribulations and having to "fix" what is affecting them.
That's still a story, it's just a different method of conveying it.
DQVII had a similar aspect, and that's personally the best DQ game with all the islands and the quirky characters within.

I dunno, it's the first RPG where I was actually in awe at the obligatory main-character-epic-powerup moment (Vileheart II). Probably because they had it happen in a special boss battle with unique battle music, and suddenly changed Oliver's casting animation to an epic one. I hate playing as main characters, so I usually also hate when games change the balance even more in the main's favor.
Still, note that I didn't say NnK had a good story, I said it had the best JRPG story in a long time. Its story is better than any Final Fantasy, better than the one Tales game I've played, better than any Tri-Ace game I've played, etc. The entire genre is lackluster.

I... What? While Cross may not be a direct sequel to Trigger it is still a sequel of sorts. The game has characters that embody the souls of ones from Trigger. Hell, Trigger characters show up in Cross and the creator of the game intended for Janus to be in the game but scrapped it at the end,

Grandia 1 and 2, Lunar 1 and 2, Arc The Lad 2, Xenogears, Final Fantasy VII through X (VI came out around the same time as Chrono Trigger right? So that doesn't count) Tales Of The Abyss, Tales Of Symphonia, Suikoden II and V, and Skies of Arcadia say hi.
JRPG lover and not ashamed of it
Avid fan of the Grandia and Lunar series.
Although I've only played ~50% of those listed, anyone who cites FF7 as a game with a good story can't be trusted, sorry. FF7 was a disk of chasing a guy from town to town, a disk of being emo, and a disk of 40 Atari arcade classics, and by that I mean nothing but ridiculous minigames.
FFX had a pretty good story, though, even if the characters were lacking for the most part.
