So I stopped my play through of Phantasy Star 3 after the first generation and decide to jump into PS4. This game is light years ahead of the rest of the series... Better writing/characters, battle systems more fluid, cutscenes portraits are a nice touch yes

Skipping PS3 is the right move, it's just bad.

I will say though, PS4 didn't impress me very much. It feels a bit generic and straightforward, so I'd take both 1 & 2 over it.

Phantasy Star 3 seemed cool, in theory. While PS4 isn't the caliber of some of the SNES RPGs, I think it's the best RPG Genesis has to offer

I'm not a big fan of anime or JRPGs but I bought Persona 5 from the last Best Buy sale due to the hype from all of my friends...And I love it! 30 hours in and it doesn't even feel like it. The game is so chill and relaxing (especially the soundtrack), and the story definitely pulls you in.

What are other games like this on the PS4?

It might be the next Vita RPG I play. I should finish Trails first, though. I left it half way. Trying to get everything towards the plat burned me out.

I would recommend Ys VIII it'a a fun action RPG. Or Odin Sphere. a 2D platformer RPG. Odin Sphere is amazing with amazing story. Feels more like a platformer with a great story than an RPG. Give it a try!

Tokyo Xanadu doesn't look too much like Persona 5...at least from the quick video I saw. It looks more action/hack and slash kind of game, no?

I'm honestly tempted to get a Vita just for P4 since I've been hearing great things about that one too.

P4 is excellent as well. The easiest recommendation if you like p5.

Tokyo Xanadu shares the school setting where you have free time to spend with friends and it has it's own version of social links where you spend time with them etc. But the battles are more action like Ys it's not turn based. Caligua effect overdose comes out match 5 I believe and also shares some traits.

Legend of heroes trails of cold steel series as well.. the PS4 versions start coming out real soon..that's a 4 parter... There's also the trails in the sky trilogy that goes with those set before them, and the crossbell duology that you have to get fan translations for. Trails in the sky are all on PC and cold steel will be on ps4, they we're previously on PS3/vita but these PS4 releases are like the PC ones in that they are a complete edition of sorts.

ya, one of my playing goals for this year around playing all the other games coming out that i want to play, which is quite a few but maybe not as many as the last couple years, of course yakuza 3 remaster, judgement and fire emblem are biggies i'll be on right away, but the trails of series in chronological order, all 8 of them already released (skyx3, crossbell x2 and cold steelx3) are something i want to do in 19. maybe a tall order to finish in 19 but im gonna see how far i can get. i['ll be played the three previously mentioned along with stuff like days gone to break up the long rpg stuff though. summer will the determining factor, if i can put a serious hole in that series over that time it might be possible.

Berseria is on sale, newest PSN sale. So picked that up. Going to try and get to that this year. I played it for 5-6 hours when it came out and liked it, just other things prevented me from playing it then so I sold it off.

berseria is definitely good, I liked the skits better in vesperia I think, but they are ok in this one too. I hope they take most of what they did in berseria forward in the series. was def fun to play, only at the ending area that I felt was too drawn out was I ready for it to be over and got tired of the combat. most jrpgs suffer from this though, good final dungeons seem strangely rare in jrpgs, they always seem like the most rushed areas because they are trying to get done with the game, but yet feel too long in most cases, I get they are supposed to be among a games hardest areas and all that, but berseria and world of final fantasy are among the worst in recent memory.

ya.. I know when it gets down to the end they have to get wrapped up and whatnot, but its like you already know what to expect of a final dungeon in an rpg now, strange themes that don't look anything like anything else in the game, backgrounds that are wild colors or repeating patterns because it needed to be done quicker than other areas, maybe not all, but its common enough im not surprised by it. a google search for images isn't really turning up the examples im thinking of and I cant spend too much time hunting them at work but i'll try and find some later.

id prefer a normal dungeon or area, even if smaller than the long drawn out unimaginative areas some games give us just for the sake of being long.

I still claim Zesteria was better in many ways. Maybe I just enjoyed the more light-hearted theme, but overall I felt the characters, music, and story were better than Berseria's.

Kingdom Hearts III complete. It was a mixed bag, really. @RobotVM please give it an 8/10 rating for me. I think I'm going to try Assassin's Creed Syndicate before jumping into Tales of Vesperia on the Switch.

On Atlus...Survey complete. That took a while. I just want a female protagonist in Persona 6. That's all I really care about. A Persona 3 remake would also be great. It's still my favorite game in the series and I would love to be able to play a HD version with all the improvements introduced in 4 and 5.

id be down with a female protag in persona 6 or the choice of either, but I did like all the romance options in p5, as corny as that is, and I don't want to romance dudes, all my female characters are almost always into girls. it probably wouldn't make a difference though, japan and the anime community love their yuri so im sure there would be no shortage even for a female protag

Nearing the end of Vesperia. One thing I hate about this game is the long winded conversations they have with a super villain they are about to attack. Not only is it long winded, it is so low key and calm. This is a trope I really hate. But it's not like it's in every jRPG. There are great ones that actually have a sense of urgency during what should be hectic moments. Not this game though.

Perhaps it's the English voice cast. I switch over to Jap for awhile and notice the VA are a bit more animated. Perhaps Japanese VA just works a bit better for this game. Switching to Jap for the rest of the 3rd act.

Never played Kingdom Hearts before (well, other than the GBA Chain of Memories as a kid), and the hype from 3 had me wanting to finally start. Playing 1.5 on PS4 right now, and it's....ok. The gummi ship customization is real annoying, and while it's fun in shorter bursts, I don't really feel the need to keep playing for hours.

I wish I could throw the N64 into a wood chipper to get another game for one of the other consoles.

Yeah I left off some personal favourites of mine like SRW OG2. That was a ball busting choice between that and FE SS.

ya I had to use the handhelds to round out and get FF6 and chrono trigger in there, could have swapped 4 and 6 on the list was just trying to get both of those and CT on there. was also hard to leave off stuff like Ar Tonelico, Radiata Stories or Shadow Hearts, but couldn't do it at the expense of DQ 8, I could have used 3ds for that but id have had to give up awakening. I didn't take KOTOR because its not a jrpg, but of course that's the one Id take for xbox. I may play that again this year its been a long time. lamenting the death of the real bioware has me wanting to go back and play all their good games but im also afraid it would just make it worse.

I'm pretty happy with my list overall.

Also, for people that haven't heard of my Saturn game (maybe everyone?) it got a fully playable translation patch this year. It's a Zelda type game more than a true jrpg, but a blast to play.

Dang I think i got a gaming problem. wasn't even a week ago i posted how thrilled i was to have Peronsa 4 back and was gonna 100% it. then I go to the Playstation store and found a sale on Anime games. ended up buying Sword Art Online: Re-Fragment. then that same afternoon I was in a Gamestop just looking at their Vita Games and somehow ended up walking out with DQXI for the Ps4!

Now I'm all about Dragon Quest! Sometimes I think it's the thrill of the hunt for games over the actual game playing.

guess there are worse addictions.

I'm not sure I will take part in this desert island discussion. But I would say I'd want to play rpgs that I wouldn't mind playing multiple times. So Chrono Trigger on DS for example.

dragon quest 11 is so good! dont stop at the credits there is a huge act 3 not just an epilogue and the true ending is mind blowing.

I wasnt going to play another rpg til caligula effect but after jd said nights of azure was kind of on the short side I got to thinking I'd probably have time..but it is extremely bland. Ya it's got big tiddie anime girls who are gay for each other and while that's always a plus with the weeb crowd I'm finding myself less than engaged with it. I'm in chapter 3 I think so it may be about to pick up a little.

Yeah, pretty hyped as well. I need more Persona-style games in my life.

@tonymack21 Reviews for the Vita version weren't too hot. The game had a lot of issues, but it looks like they've fixed them and added a bunch of new things with this re-release. It'll be interesting to see how it reviews next week.

@JD We don't accept western filth here, so that's a hell no to Fable. J/k lol

so nights of azure has like 1,049 endings. thats not happening. (ok like 5 or 6) youtube time.

its not like dragon quest 11 that has a super fleshed out 3rd act leading to a true end, if it was something like that maybe, but this also isnt a masterpiece like dq11. what has happened to Gust? the last couple of their games ive played are the two worst rpgs ive played this gen. they used to be amazing.


shenmue 2 is one of the worst games ive ever played. if you get through it i applaud your courage and tenacity. and i finished magna carta tears of blood and blue reflection.
