It's funny that someone mentioned Last Remnant.

I think that's like the fifth time I've seen that game mentioned in a positive light this month.

I seem to recall that the game was rather hated. What happened?


Desperation I suppose.

I only listed it because it's an option. JRPG's are a lot more limited on Steam than it is on consoles.

Oh jeez I forgot. Not a JRPG though. Dragon Knight Saga. Larian at their peak. Only first half though. 2nd is the xpac they tacked on (this is the enhanced edition of the original release which was a failure) and it sucks. Main game has issues but music is phenomenal. Beats Original Sin no contest. Haven't bothered with OS2 and likely never will. Larian promised to do more work on Dragon Commander, but ditched the EA on it when they saw OS1 was getting a lot of attention and never looked back.

And then I played OS1 and found out it was s***. DC was at least trying something new, they just didn't finish it.

Just a sample of that stellar OST. The game does get a bit tedious during the last couple hours though, when you're OP as f*** and clearing out the copypaste flying fortresses.

Trails in the Sky (both FC and SC)

Combined is around 90-100 hours in length; zero grinding, just pure character/world building and story.

The games lead into Cold Steel. Some characters are kind of archetypical but they go against their regular archetypes in anime as well. The game has also left many, based on what I've read on Steam, in tears multiple times.

Can't recommend a JRPG more than those two; I expect the same from Cold Steel but am holding off because it's 2-3 games long and I do not want to be cliff hung for years (Trails of the Sky FC ends in a huge cliff hanger)

Between all the JRPGs I've played in my life, this is the only recent one that's left a lasting impression. The others being Final Fantasies but I played those at the start of my gaming hobby 15+ years ago; this says a lot about the Legend of Heroes series.
I like to go really fast

I have them but didn't get around to playing them yet. That really is nice to hear. The worse part about archetypal character is when they always act the same or have similar spoilers. It's very shallow, and doubly so if animé depthless joke characters exist. I love non-human party members. I don't like them if they are ditzy depthless dummies that go on about sleep and food 24/7, which seems to be something Japan loves. It makes the likes of Hanpan of the first Wild ARMs refreshing, etc. It's one of the reasons I like Sorey so much in Tales of Zesteria. The game is filled with shallow archetypes, but the main character being an archaeology nerd isn't one of them.
