Interesting list. It's certainly sad to see the general sentiment from fans tell me just how lacking this generation is when it comes to JRPGs. Hopefully it'll pick up soon.

Yeh am quite annoyed at the situation.

I blame Square Enix mainly, they ruined the most popular jrpg's series of all time.

Thanks to the merger, we now have poor FF games (they dont know how to make them good anymore), and no more games like Chrono Trigger or Xenogears.

They are now incapable of thinking of anything unique

Some people say SE isnt dead because they made DQ8 or Kingdom Hearts, actually SE didnt make any of those games. LV5 made DQ8 !!!

I know most people will disagree with me but I thought Final Fantasy 12 was a masterpiece, like Dragon Quest 8, I found myself coming back to it for it's brilliant gameplay rather than the story and that's a sign of a great game. So I wouldn't say that Square Enix are incapable of making a great FF game, they just f***ed up this gen.

i see you like huge anime boobs, anyways, has no one played radiata stories on the ps2? that game was simply mind blowing with so much interactivity between NPC's.

The only 2 JRPGs I've played are Legend of Dragoon and Lost Odyssey, they were both pretty decent.

Also Pokemon Blue too if you count that as a JRPG

Lost Odyssey is easy the best JRPG of this generation PERIOD! Mist walker really out did themselves with that over looked gem. Too bad it was only exclusive to Xbox 360, it would've sold 10 times more if it went multiplat IMO.

They just dont make games like that anymore :(

Parasite Eve, Grandia 2, Lunar, Rouge Galaxy, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma, Sailor Moon Another Story, VALKYRIA CHRONICLES, Tales of Phantasia(PS1), Star Ocean first and second departure, Sakura Wars V, Valkyrie Profile, Albert Odyssey (Saturn), Shining Force III, Shining the Holy Ark, Seiken Densetsu 3

That's why I don't mind the current lack of Jrpg with this huge backlog of retro Jrpg. =)

Great list. TOS is up there but you are missing one of the most underrated RPGS of All time. Goldensun.

great list!

final fantasy 13 and 13-2 were both just as good as 7 to me so all of your fake opinions on the newer final fantasys are nothing to me

Shadow Hearts <3 That game was my childhood, I have all 3, plus, for some reason, 2 copies of the last one.
