Probably the best JRPG of the 32-bit generation for my money. I know Xenogears has a better story, but FFIX is overall more polished.

my nigglet. I would agree as well that this is the best RPG of its era. Granted the story gets convoluted after the first disk. It still holds its own. Throwing FF Tactics, because of that ending. Holy shit, that was fucking amazing.

There are a lot of JRPGs that I can recommend and the first one I will give you is a big one. The Trails series from Nihon Falcom is one of the best story games I’ve ever played and there are a lot of games. It will be perfect if you just want to immerse yourself in a fantastic world.

I tried playing one of these and it felt juvenile and patronizing, with annoying characters and dialogue that feels like it was written by an alien or a robot who doesn’t understand how humans actually speak. Idk if this is a translation issue or what. Maybe there’s a good story in there but when none of the characters feel like real people I don’t get the point. I tried persona 5 after all the hype and felt the same way.

It makes me feel like a smug negative nancy. I really wanted to enjoy these games

your spot on with your self reflection. jrpg has traditionally been a expansion on the fantasy genre. I would consider Persona to be in the urban-fantasy sub genre. you should start your own thread for 'realistic games'

Almost. There’s a couple good ones.


I don’t think writing good dialogue and characters is something that is unique to certain genres. It doesn’t have to be a realistic setting. And I enjoy all kinds of movies and books, even pretty generic or average ones.

All the yes in this bitch of a universe. Go play this.

Like it's worth playing for the OST alone. Don't even get me started on the bajillion gorillion characters and wistful late-1990's anime vibe.

Also I suggest trying Baroque just to say you have. Wacky goddamn JRPG/dungeon-crawl gamelike thing on PS1/PS2 (PS2 has better graphiscs.)

Nobody in this thread has mentioned Shin Megami Tensei, and I feel obligated to.
You've probably heard things about SMT. Things like "it's really hard" and "it's dark and moody edgy Persona."
Both of these are false. The worlds of Shin Megami Tensei are of the Weird variety, in the literary sense. Demons came and caused the apocalypse, but you still have jocks, queers, scumbags, sluts, thugs, bootlickers, and everyone in between. All those demons? Turns out that since they're memetic life forms, they're just people in disguise. Everyone has a personality, even if they're bit characters with one line of dialogue. No mainline Shin Megami Tensei game could be considered edgy in the Shadow the Hedgehog sense; the tone is somewhere between Devilman and Devil May Cry.
As for the difficulty, it's overstated (in basically the same way as Dark Souls), but every game in the series will bust your balls. Every game has a trick to it, and once it clicks it's like any other JRPG. Unlike most JRPGs, buffing, debuffing, and status effects, can't be ignored. Neither can weaknesses and resistances, where regular mooks can reflect an attack and let you kill yourself or your demon.
First three games (1, 2, If...) are dungeon crawlers. They're only translated on SNES, so don't expect super smooth 3D, but it works. They all play similarly to one another, with tweaks added in 2 and If.... 1 and If... are standalone, while 2 is a direct sequel to the canon route of the first game. Surprisingly fast-paced, but make sure to bring some graph paper.

SMT Nocturne is a third person linear RPG, with a focus on quiet and stillness. Ironically, the soundtrack totally fucks.
It's more streamlined, but features the "press-turn" system that all games going further would make attempts at. If you've played Persona, you've encountered a version of it. When it's the players turn, you have an action point for each character in your party. If you hit a weakness or pass a turn, you only use half of an action point, which translates to an extra turn. In other words, as many as ten turns can be taken during one player phase.
SMT IV and Soul Hackers are both winners. IV is a medieval fantasy/cyberpunk while Soul Hackers is full cyberpunk. Soul Hackers has great characters, best in the series, but the stakes max out at potentially one city going under. There's no apocalypse here.
SMTV I haven't finished yet, but I do not recommend it as a first game; only to really hardcore fans of the series. I don't see anyone else really liking it.

Recently modded my playstation classic and I'm revisiting some RPGs.

If you want to fuck your sister play Lunar, if you want to fuck a child play Lunar 2. Other than that I've been enjoying valkyrie profile.

If you have an old 360 somewhere, Lost Odyssey is pretty good, beware tho It might be nostalgia talking, pretty sure it must have aged pretty descent, beat that shit back at highschool while superhigh reading all the little stories about being an inmortal dude. I wish it was available on PC, last and best final fantasy for me tbh

Based off what I remember, I doubt it. I still have my copy of the game. I wish I had a used 360 to play it.

I love em, but a lot of JRPG’s have too much padding in them. Only few can hit that sweet spot of the right engagement if that makes sense.

Dragon Quest/Warrior 1 is a fantastic RPG that not many people have played. Pure and simple, 1v1 combat, and you're always at risk of dying. Very short game (for a JRPG) and extremely memorable map. It's a bit like an adventure game in some ways. And first game I remember where you can decide to say fuck it, join forces with the villain and just rule the kingdom with an iron fist

Legends of Legaia (pic related)

Breath of Fire III (good art imo and sound effects imo)


Threads of Fate if you want that sweet JRPG nectar without a turn based system

Lost Odyssey sux

Tales of Symphonia and Skies of Arcadia are two of my favorites. Skies is rare but pretty easy to emulate. FF9 is also great like a few people pointed out. ToS is an action RPG with a really fun battle system, the other two are turn based. All have pretty fun stories and characters. FF9 has the best story and writing of these three but is a lot more dated in terms of graphics and gameplay. All three are incredibly charming.

If you like 16 bit games check out Secret of Mana for SNES, for something more recent I'd definitely play Dragon Quest 11.

My all time favorite jrpg is Kingdom Hearts 2 but i don't recommend playing it because kevin from school will beat you up if you do.

>Tales of Symphonia

A lot of people tried recommending this to me, but I wasn't able to finish it. I felt as if people were viewing the game with rose tinted glasses. Me personally, I would recommend Vesperia over Symphonia just to be on the safe side. Tales of Xillia 1 and 2 (Especially 2) were also dope. Played Berseria and wasn't crazy about it. Haven't played Tales of Arise since I heard it's aggressively long with a lack of enemy variations.

>Kingdom Hearts 2

The Data Organization XIII fights for KH2 and KH3 are where the game shines the most. Beating those boss battles felt so satisfying on Critical mode. If you're playing for anything else other than that, then you deserve to get beaten up by Kevin from school.

Never understood what the hype for Berseria was about beyond extremely horny protagonist design, I liked Zestiria more which was just average.
Xillia 1 rocked but the whole debt thing in 2 forcing you to regularly do mundane side quests stopped me from finishing it, most of what I played wasn't necessarily bad though.
Most of my time gaming this past couple of years has been spent on decades old consoles so I forgot that Symphonia is pretty dated and the over world is a nightmare to navigate. Vesperia is absolutely the way to go, but I prefer the combat in ToS. ToS also has Zelos, but ToV has Raven.

>The Data Organization XIII fights for KH2 and KH3 are where the game shines the most.

100%ing KH2 on critical is the whole reason it's still my favorite JRPG. I just beat the data battles in 3 recently and was totally blown away by how much of a good time I had.
Admittedly though I'm not above a casual normal mode playthrough, I have a ton of nostalgia for this series and I'm too old to be worrying about whether gamers on the internet think I'm epic. Kevin was gonna beat me up anyway for being gay and watching anime.

Hell yea mate.

Punishing Gray Raven (android/ios)
Scarlet Nexus (Xbox)

Those are mostly kinda 'psychcore' with fine battle concepts.
