Definitely agree with number one (Xenoblade Chronicles). Fantastic, wonderful, *insert your own positive adjective here*.

I loved the combat, the story was engaging, the world was breathtaking, and the soundtrack was absolutely awesome.

Xenoblade was pretty good. But I have beef with some of the choices made:

First of all, I'm not sure why they put Persona 3 and 4 together. They're awesome games on their own, especially P4 Golden. That game takes the cake for one of the very best games in recent years. It should also be higher on the list.

Tales of Graces F was better than Vesperia.

And Valkyria Chronicles could have been included I think.

Valkyria Chronicles in "honorable mentions", what a joke! Valkyria is much better than half the games in that Top 10 for god's sake....

I agree. It was my favorite but ni no kuni may beat it. Not sure yet. It is funny how many of my favorite games ever are kn this list, including dragons dogma, my favoriye game of 2012. Now, we need anoth Valkyria, Dragons Dogma, Persona and Lost Odyssey.

Also, isnt it funny that FF decided this genre was dying so they began morphing into another generic, saturated genre. Why cant tbey see that what we want is old tradition jrpg updated. U can evolve without ditching everything that made it great. They baffle me.

Maybe it should have been a top 11 then. I'm currently 5 hours into VC 2...the only one I've played a I like it a lot so far. It's different...in a good way.

I would say that so is Tales of Graces f, but that hasn't even made the honourable mentions.

ThyMagicSword1278d ago

Xenoblade Chronicles deserves to be the best on the list, even people who do not like JRPGs could like Xenoblade.

Godmars2901278d ago

At the very least, FF13 isn't anywhere on the list.

Lost Odyssey was a fantastic game that any fans of PS1/PS2 era JRPG's really need to check out.

Also nice to see some recognition for Crisis Core. This game was so well done, and works perfectly on a handheld. Also, the CG in this game is AMAZING. Youtube it.
