the problem with Xenogears is that it's just sooo easy an then it has so much more text than gameplay that it feels more like a visual novel. Yeah the story is good but it would have been better as an anime, trilogy of movies or something rather than the boring game that it is.

Funny, the thing I liked best about Xenogears was the reading. I liked the gameplay, but I enjoyed the story 100x more.

The game is most definitely not boring, you just dont like to read ...

Boring? o.o r u seriously referring to Xenogears with that word? that's nothing less than sacrilege! SINNER! Xenogears fans must grab u & burn u in the stake!!!

Xenogears is the most amazing, superb, fantastic, fabulous JRPG ever & words like the one your filthy mouth spout it's an insult to the million of Xenogear fans out there.

You coming here & spouting insults cant be anything else other than trolling, get lost big fat troll & meke us all the favor & never appear in any Xenogears article ever again.

probably just kid ... just doesnt know how to read well enough and it frustrates him. Hate to be harsh but those are the only 2 reasons why i would think someone wouldnt enjoy that game.

Reading is fundamental.

Xenogears was one of the games that sold me on the PS1 back when I was in high school. I remember the Pizza Hut demo with this, the opening of Bushido Blade 2, movies of FF8, and I forgot the rest. The story alone kept me interested, and the combat was different from the typical RPG, my only complaint was how off the audio was with the scenes.

I saw they re-released this on PSN and I plan on picking it up in the future; right now I still have some games I have yet to even open.

IMO this was the BEST RPG on the PS1 that was ever made. I liked it soooo much better than the likes of FF7. Better story, better gameplay, better everything.

I'd vote it as one of the best of the PS1 era, but I wouldn't say it's #1, I'd give that to Legend of Dragoon.

For me, it's on par with another squaresoft masterpiece which are Vagrant Story & FF Tactics.

Clicked immediately after recognizing the X from Xenogears! :-) It is my first RPG and my favourite game ever. The story was mind blowing and I was screaming and jumping all around my room when it was revealed that Fei is Id. I still crave that joy which I experienced playing Xenogears and Final Fantasy VIII for the first time. I have all my original PS1 collection on PS3 and treasure it.

Xenogears is my favorite PS1 RPG game of all time. I used to like FF7 a lot, until I played through Xenogears. Aerith dying in FF7 was sad, but Xenogears brought up more topics that poked at religion and questioned existence. Xenogears wasn't just you vs a bad guy. It was you vs existence. There are a lot of details in Xenogears than FF7, IMO, which made me like it.

Xenogears really opened my mind in story telling for a ps1 game. It's an amazing game that not a lot of people played.

Started playing it recently. Currently on the sandship with pirates. Hasn't blown my socks off yet but I'll persist.

The game has a pretty long build up. One of the longest that I can remember. That was repeated in the first Xenosaga game, although in a less interesting way. Once it really gets going though, it doesn't let up.

Once you and Rico bust out... Pandora's box will open
