Top 5 JRPGs That Should Return Next-Gen

"During the era of the PlayStation 1 and 2, JRPGs were one of the strongest genres on consoles. Over the past generation of gaming however, JRPGs seem to have dwindled off of consoles and focused themselves more on handhelds." | Explosion.com

If they don't bring in VC3 to the states, I won't support 4 at all. I don't like skipping games.

Game publishers/developers have become just to greedy. The industry has become too big for its own good and now everyone only cares about sales/money. Nobody wants to risk making a game that may not sell enough. As a result we do not get any great JRPGs like the old days. In the old days, developers were all about passion, perfection, hobby and dreams. They did not care for the money and that is why we got those memorable masterpieces. I really miss those old times when I used to look forward to the next big RPG by Squaresoft. I loved Breath of Fires, Suikoden and Grandia too. Those were the good old days.

More like the development costs of this console cycle were too prohibitive for creative game making. Hopefully if what Sony said during their conference then prices on the dev side will come down.

Just wish the greed aspect would subside.

Unfortunately I doubt we'll see VC3 in the States except by fan translation.

...hurts my love for more Jansen.

Was about to say that, those who don't own a 360 and are JRPG fans are really missing out.

kalkano1787d ago

I'd love to try it. If it wasn't the only reason to buy an XBOX 360, I would.

Da One1786d ago

There are several reason to own a 360

Tales of Vesperia (granted the PS3 version is better, but it's not state side)
Halo Series
Fable Series (really don't care for)
Gears Series (really don't care for)
Bethesda Games (better version than PS3)
Witcher 2 (if you don't own a gaming PC)

They're are plenty of reasons to own any console.

jc485731786d ago

I bought a damn 360 years later for that game.

ThanatosDMC1787d ago

Suikoden 3! I still think it's the best in the series.

Xof1787d ago

It's decent. But I'd argue for V, and then II, as being better.

Really, though, the only thing all Suikoden fans can agree on is that Suikoden IV was a steaming pile of ass.

ThanatosDMC1786d ago

Yup, they went full retard on IV.
