The Best Android JRPGs Ever Made

The JRPG genre fits so well with mobile gaming that there’s no shortage of games out there for download, many of which are middling to awful, some featuring paywalls and other lame freemium tactics. So make sure you sink your time and cash into JRPGs that don’t suck with this list of the best ever JRPGs on Android. (Android, Chaos Rings 2, Chrono Trigger , Drakerider, End of Aspiration, Final Fantasy I & II, Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy IV, iPhone, Mobile, Symphony of the Origin, Zenonia)

*insert a generic comment on how mobile gaming sucks*

i don't know why this new generation of *gamers* hates almost everything,
one should be happy that even phones now have some good games.
no one is exactly forcing you to throw your consoles out in favor of android.consoles/pc are still mainstream, there is no dispute on that but still if android gets new games,
a gamer should only be happy and not pissed off.

It's more about those 'analysts' who say consoles and handhelds are dying when the most popular games for mobiles are casual cash-in Facebook kind of games.

That is a big problem for mobile gaming. I'd like to think some of these bigger titles are turning it into a more legit form of gaming though.

It's not that we hate mobile.

It's that if it was on handheld or console, it would control that much better.

Imagine playing Madden or COD/BF3 at home on your 50 inch tv, but you have to swipe the screen to make anything happen.

There are some definite problems with mobile gaming. I think it still needs to figure out its strengths. The Chrono Trigger port came out surprisingly decent all things considered, but I'd be fooling myself if I tried to claim it controlled better than using a controller.

But other games that have been made specifically for mobile platforms have been phenomenal, like Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. That's a game that you can tell was originally developed for handheld devices and I think it controls and is a more immersive experience that way than it is on a PC or Mac.
