My friend asked me to find him a game "that is or looks japanese and plays kinda like Skyrim", explaining that he doesn't want turn based fighting.

Are there any games like that? I know very few jrpgs, so I came here for help. Help will be appreciated!

Dark Souls II.


Can he play that without having played the first game?

edit: I mean for plot reasons.

Absolutely although I highly recommend he plays the original Dark Souls. I actually prefer the original over its sequel. The plot in Dark Souls II skimps out a lot of the lore from the original which to me is quite disappointing.

Overall both the original and sequel are fantastic games that your friend will enjoy. Again I heavily suggest he plays the original.

I'd also recommend Drakengard/Nier.
The story is quite amazing, if your friend has a chance, I'd reccomend he play Drakengard 1-2 first before Nier. Otherwise, it's fine playing Nier without them. There's just some little tidbits that you might get if you play them first.

It isn't a JRPG, it isn't open-world.

Uh... the Ys games? Nothing like Skyrim, but fits the other criteria.

I haven't played it but if he has a PS3, Nier perhaps?

Not sure if it's an actual JRPG.
Nothing here.

The only thing I can really think of is Dragon's Dogma and I guess Xenoblade. Not much for PC.
Yes, said game is worth $5. {3DS Friend Code 3050-7626-8586}
