10 JRPGs to try for people who hate JRPGs

A lot of people say that they hate JRPGs for various reasons. Often they just don't like many of the common conventions employed by JRPG developers. Well, before they give up on the genre completely, here are ten games to give a try. (3DS, Chrono Trigger , Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Nintendo DS, Paper Mario, Persona 4, Pokemon, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Retro, Tales of Graces F, Xbox 360)

Tales of Graces f! *throws a computer out the window*
Persona 4!! *Throws a TV out the window*
Chrono Trigger!!! *Throws a car*

Lol seriously though, all of these games are wonderful. RPGs are what made me into a gamer back with the original Final Fantasy.

Skies of Arcadia is amazing

Tales of Graces f is one of the best JRPGs from this generation easily

I would add Ni no Kuni to the list, that game is simply awesome, its like a combo of Dragon Quest and Pokemon, its fantastic, clocked in over 80 hours on it, and I didn't even finish it yet

Pokemon and the Mario RPGs are the only ones I play...I HATE turned based games. They're sooooooo boring.

I don't like sports games or most FPS games so therefore I don't play them.

I don't play them anyway and then tell everyone how terrible they are.

I was already thinking about picking up Persona 4 Golden for my vita and now i i'm definitely getting it from what this article says:)

Easy, Persona 4 Golden. Hard for you to get lost and an amazing experience. Its definitively a fresh JRPG exp to me and not old and dated.
