Just a word from the wise, try using a less-subdued text color. It makes your post really hard to read.

Also, using full words is a good idea too. :P

And furthermore, this is the wrong section. Role-Playing Games are a bit farther up.


That said, what kind of RPGs do you like? What have you played before? Is there anything you don't want, or must have in an RPG?

Personally, I'm a big fan of Steambot Chronicles (PS2), Rogue Galaxy (PS2), and the three Deathspank games (Xbox 360/PS3).

And Skyrim. GO BUY IT.

Also Kingdom Hearts is a great action RPG series,
though the story can be confusing if you have not played any of the games before.

And blacksinow already named some of the Final Fantasy games I like, and Chrono Trigger.

I truthfully preferred Fallout 2 more, not sure why.

Final Fantasy (If you have a PS 1 or 2, or have a computer, play 7 and 8!)
Skyrim is fantastic! :)
The new Chrono Trigger for Wii is supposed to be AMAZING.

Alright, Skyrim's cool, and Ima let you finish, but Call of Duty is the best RPG of all time.

Of ALL time.

If you like RPG/Shooters, borderlands 1 is good. But be weary if you buy any of the old games from gog, they may not work as well. I know arcanum gave me fits, forcing me to uninstall it.

Borderlands, Skyrim, there's a south park RPG coming out next year that looks promising.

You pretty much just listed all the new stuff, and all the Final Fantasy games. :|

How about this?

Persona 3: FES

It's rated M, and it's pretty dark, but it also has a ton of really cool stuff. There's an entire social sim in here, plus it's got elements of roguelikes (randomly generated dungeons). So good. And all the anime cutscenes your heart could desire. :P

Persona 4

Same deal as above, but a little less dark. Also, it's awesome. :D

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

So, the Dragon Quest series is pretty popular in Japan. Like, more popular than the Final Fantasy series. Like, kids have been robbed on the way home after buying this game. So it's good. In fact, this might be one of the best PS2 games to come out, since, I don't know, Final Fantasy X. It's just really good, and really classic.


Entire Disgaea series

Let's ignore the (very Japanese and very dark) story. It's about some dudes in a parallel universe called the Netherworld, where moral values are reversed from those of humans. Or something. ... Point is, it's an awesome tactical RPG on the PS2, a system which has a ton of bad RPGs, some middling ones, and pretty much no tactical RPGs. Which makes this unique.

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

You're a valkyrie in this game. That's cool enough. But, beyond that, you're looking at a sidescrolling RPG with a crazy cool combat system.

Blue Dragon

A sprawling three-disc game on the Xbox 360, made by Mistwalker, which was founded by some of the key guys behind the most successful of the Final Fantasy games? And what's that? It has old-school difficulty and amazing boss fight music? With art by Akira Toriyama, the guy behind the Dragonball Z manga, this game just keeps getting better and better.

Lost Odyssey

Another game from Mistwalker, this one was written by Hironobu Sakaguchi (the guy who wrote Final Fantasy 6 and 7, and directed/designed the games in the series prior to that), but it's anything but old-school. In fact, it has a pretty new battle system, and the writing is so good, the game designers out and said that they wanted players to cry with this game. Well, that's not easy task... but somehow, amidst grating side-characters, they managed it. There's some of the most moving writing in a game in years here, and it's truly astounding what they managed.

Let me be honest: there are a many more games that I would recommend after this. Many more. From the philosophical leanings of the Xenosaga games, to Final Fantasy Tactics; from Tactics Ogre to nearly any game in the Tales series; from Skies of Arcadia to the Star Ocean series. There are so many worthy titles... Final Fantasy is just the easiest fallback, and the most mainstream.
