Kotaku: "There comes a time when every person must sit back, think about his or her life's accomplishments, and wonder, 'What JRPGs should I play?' Fear not. I'm here to help."
For once, I read a "Top X" list, and thought it was a pretty good one. Although, I'd personally replace some on the list with the likes of Xenoblade, Shining Force 3, Final Fantasy 10, Grandia 2, and Suikoden 3.
Chrono Trigger, FF6 and FF7 are by far my holy trinity of JRPGs. Chrono Trigger being one of my favorite games of all time.
My holy trinity of JRPG's are Xenogears,Chrono Cross, and Final Fantasy VII.
FF 6..... Dat magitek....
No Breath of Fire III, no Legend of Dragoon, no Grandia I/II, no Fire Emblem, no Xenoblade, no FFX & it have Kingdom Hearts in a JRPG list can u call that thing JRPG? KH is an action platform game with light rpg elements to call KH JRPG is like call Zelda JRPG which is not... Fail.
Is English your first language?
Opinions =/= fact bro. Bro....
They're taking JRPG in the literal sense (well not completely). In this article JRPGs are simply Japanese RPGs. What you're thinking of its the genre of turn-based RPGs which are often called JRPGs (in a similar way that the Italian Sergio Leone-inspired westerns were called Spaghetti Westerns). Also, always remember that not all turn based RPGs (JRPGs as some prefer) are made by Japanese people (just as not all "Spaghetti Westerns" are made by Italians).
Ni no kuni getting some love :) awesome game
Persona 4 Golden. The cast in that is a 100% a good time, Japanese version of the T.V show friends.
Soo good... I don't want to spoil it(so I won't), but that ending.... DAMN.
Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding!!!
I almost thought dragon quest 8 wouldn't make the list haha, definitely my favourite jrpg.
No luv for Vagrant Story, Breath of Fire, Disgaea, Wild Arms, Legend of Dragoon, Star Ocean, Tales, Ar Tonelico, Front Mission, Grandia, or Fire Emblem? T_T
Lots of great stuff left off the list, but that happens when there are so many great games to try and stuff into such a small group. Bonus points to everybody who says Grandia II.
