I kind of rushed through it, 32 hours. I didn't do any of the side content, just main lined the main story. I really enjoyed it. But at the same time I'm glad to be done and moving on. The combat wore on me 20 hours in. After playing later Tales combat this older stuff is very bland.

Good morning RPG trope. @robotVM I'd like to change my currently playing to Lost Odyssey Microsoft Xbox 360, Vesperia Nintendo Switch, and FF8 PlayStation Classics PlayStation Portable
And could you add to coming soon FFX/X-2 Remaster Nintendo Switch 4-19 and FFXII: Zodiac Age Nintendo Switch 4-30?

I'll update you all on how long Lost Odyssey is with a fairly thorough playthrough soon.

I actually prefer the old more simplistic style of Vesperia, Symphonia, etc. . Instead of "hold R1 and right right X" and "hold L2 up for mystic art after that". Whatever it is I never remember the combos and can't easily pull off the flashy spells.

im finding it hard to pull off the flashy specials in this one after playing the newer, but ive been pretty overleveled and haven't really had to, since this is kind of a new game+ from the old days I used the exp boosters early and sailed through the first half of the game.

Octopath was definitely my favorite RPG of 2018, though I haven't played DQ 11 (but I will when it comes to Switch). I'm currently playing Landstalker and Light Crusader via the Sega Genesis Classics. I don't think either of those could be considered JRPGs, but I'm probably going to start up one of the Shining Force games soon. Landstalker has some pretty awful controls, but I'm liking Light Crusader so far.

Currently playing Elex (not a jrpg though). Will probably start KH3 sometime this week too.

As for rpg of the year, DQ11 was probably the best game of all the rpgs. But for me personally its Kingdom Come Deliverance. I love terrible games.

Cool. I'll have to check it out then. I thought it was just regular DLC, and I didn't want to have to buy the full game again to play it.

Definitely! If you end up digging Berseria, go back and play through some of the highly rated ones Vesperia, Abyss, and Symphonia.

Are you Stephen on my friends list? I just started Shining Force 1 myself, so I'm officially playing that now. I just completed the second battle, which is already the furthest I've gone in any Shining Force game. The rewind ability is already proving to be very helpful in a strategy-RPG like this (playing via Sega Genesis Classics collection).

I generally hate JRPGs if I try to play two consecutively. I need some down time in between. Probably goes for most genres though, variety is good.

I mentioned it before but Legend of Dragoon is like this for me. There are some others as well. Ogre Battle 64 and Xenogears. Probably a couple I am forgetting.

Suikoden for me. I've tried playing I and II at least 5 times and I just could never really get into them. I've always wanted to play them because I've heard really good things about the series. Maybe one day.

@Heavyd814life I like the lightning trilogy as well, I get the hate but at the same I think its over hated because its cool to hate on 13. also, suikoden 1 is a game that now is a little rough around the edges but by no means bad.. but you could just play 5, its suikoden turned up to 11 and is the best in the series, as good as 2 but 2 always gets the attention.

@JD I cant recommend enough giving X another ago, its just so good. my number 4 game of all time behind only FF7, Persona 5, and the holiness The Witcher 3.

Cool! Maybe I'll just pick up 5 then. I want to finish at least one of the Suikoden games because it's one of the few JRPG series I know next to nothing about. I wish Konami would just reboot the series or something. That's probably never going to happen, though.

Ya I with they would let someone good buy their properties since they don't care about games anymore. Shame Sega or someone can't step in and buy them up, but probably won't happen. I for awhile after hearing kojima had entered into a partnership of sorts with Sony perhaps it would be announced Sony had bought them up..but that would be too much to hope for.

And ya 5 is superrrr good, couldn't recommend it enough.

1 is ambitious but rough around the edges even compared to other JRPGs of the time. II is an improvement but you mentioned trying that too. V is the best in the series so you could see if that one grips you and go downhill from there.

Lol! I thought about you while writing it since we had talked of this recently.

4 is def the weakest I'd think... and 3 I think gets lost in the mix, though I didn't find it to be the worst thing ever or anything. But 5 really is super good.

I'd play IV right now before I played I. I think it gets a lot of mostly undue hate. It's not great but it's not awful either. I put III/IV together as pretty average games that aren't as good as II/V. Though III is a bit better overall. I think that is the biggest issue, it's between two games that are better than it in the series.

I'm playing 8 again and I can safely say I much prefer it over 7. 9 will likely not beat it, for me. I just love everything about it.

I don't want to be negative about a game, but I really don't like a single thing about 8.

OH YEAH? Well I don't like a single thing about YOUR game! Lol j/k smile. We don't need to convince eachother which games we should play. I mean if you want to hear why I love it so much let me know. Otherwise I'll just continue loving it and say nothing more.

I don't even know why I have such a strong dislike for the game honestly. I just do. And I love games that everyone else thinks are complete trash. So I get it.

Suikoden V was my favorite game in that series. It's too bad there will probably never be another one.

ya its sad that its most likely a dead series, it has been for some time now I suppose. some website did get some update somewhere but it appeared to just be something about pachinko. Microsoft could buy up their properties and bolster their exclusive library with all those konami properties... come on MS save the games.

I don't remember the talking too fast thing, but maybe. Its been a decade since that game came out and I played it. It came out a year or two after V. And my love for V made me buy a DS just to play teirkreis. And I ended up liking it more than V.
