Greatest JRPGs Of Last Generation

Gaming Union: "With the latest launch of consoles into the 8th generation of gaming, we decided it was look back at the 7th generation and ponder its contributions. It’s easy enough to see that many of the genres we have grown to love have ultimately evolved over the course of these many years, some more than others. But one that seems to have taken one of the largest leaps is definitely the JRPG genre." ( Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, Final Fantasy XIII, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Nintendo DS, PS3, PSP, Tales of Vesperia, The Last Story, Valkyria Chronicles, Wii, Xbox 360, Xenoblade Chronicles)

Ni no kuni is better than FFXII, XIII and XIII-2 imho. If you're a jrpg fan there's no way you can miss playing this game.

It's even better than Pokemon imo ...I only liked Demon's Souls even more.

There weren't that many Great JRPGS last generation

Unfortunatel that is true, this genre needs to be revived on PS4.

For real luckily I think Kickstarter might be the answer to lack of JRPGS I hope SE don't screw up FF15

There might have been less, but I think thr quality of the great ones we got was better compared to the previous generation.

Glad they mentioned Valkyra Chronicles, but sad aswell because Resonance of Fate doesn't get any recognition.
OrangePowerz  +   632d ago
I loved that game.

Yah Resonance of Fate deserves some recognition, other titles missing from the list:

Pokemon Heart/Gold Soul Silver (Great Remake of the Best Pokemon titles ever)

Persona 3 Portable (The addition of a female lead was really a game changer) actually I would say this was the best JRPG of the last generation overall.

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep (Which I think is the best title in the whole series)

Lost odyssey needs some recognition as well I'm not a fan of the xbox but I know a good rpg when I see one.
