Was The Best Turn-Based RPG Of The Generation On The Xbox 360?

It seems impossible but it could very well be true. The Xbox 360 might be home to the single best traditional turn-based role-playing game of the generation. (Lost Odyssey, Xbox 360)

Lost Odyssey, without question. best JRPG this generation, period.

Blue Dragon was pretty decent too.

I agree lost odyssey might be the best jrpg this generation. But it would of been successful if it was also on the ps3/wii.

Trying to sell a lost odyssey to halo/gear fans is somewhat of a disaster.

Turn based yeah. Out of all jrpgs im going with xenoblade, that game is amazing. Its mind boggling how monolith could make a game of such scale on the wii, not to mention its just plain beautiful. Higher poligons be dammned, i would take xenoblade's artistic direction over most hd games any day

I have yet to buy the last story, so that one is another contender for jrpg but yeah lost odyssey was pretty great too

the best rpg game on consoles is easily demons souls. but lost odyssey is incredible as well, i would say its the best rpg on the 360, it improved on where final fantasy failed this gen.

Dark souls is overall better than demon souls...oh wait its also on 360. Forgot about that part...lame ass fanboy

In all fairness (and not to take anything away from Lost Odyssey) there hasn't exactly been much stellar competition in the turn-based RPG department this gen.

That said, Lost Odyssey was great. It pretty much perfected the old FF structure from previous gens, with gorgeous visuals, audio and a beautiful story to match.
