Last-gen JRPGs you may have missed

GameZone's Mandi Odoerfer writes: "When it comes to JRPGs, developers like Atlus and Monolith Soft have given us plenty of reasons to be excited about the future. However, that doesn't mean we should forget the past. Over the course of the last generation, there were a number of very good games that managed to fly under the radar."

Resonance of Fate. Amazing battle system that - in my opinion - is what FF13's battle system should've been. I also like how they included The Last Remnant. That game flopped hard. It was way too complex with not enough explanation, but if you get into the game and learn the systems, it's really, really cool.

Another one to add to the list: Radiant Historia.

Just going through TLR again now on Steam (I lost all my 50+ hr progress last year due to HDD failure and only just felt like starting from scratch). As you say it is quite complex but once you get it you really get it, shame it was so overlooked. Just bought RoF again for my PS3 love the battle system, the map/hex system not so much. Got everything else on that list apart from Arland. Surprised Folklore was not on that list as that appears to be overlooked a lot.

I love the paradigm system of XIII & XIII-2. RoF battle system seemed to be more about guns, ammo & party placement.

In a nutshell. RoF battle system is overly complex. (NOT HARD, just complex) FFXIII's battle system is the opposite.

How they skip to mention Xenoblade? although it got perfect reviews the sales was not so gr8 as it deserve so no brain lot's of JRPG fans skip this game, especially when it's so hard to find a copy or even if u find one u must be ready to pay quite a lot...

Anyway I'm sure lot's of ppl didn't play this game & that's really a shame, I suggest to all JRPG fans out there to play this game maybe a few won't like it but I guarantee that those who do r going to have an unforgettable experience & Xenoblade will become one of their all time favorite games of the previous generation.

Trouble is finding a copy now that is not over-priced (I live/am looking at UK/Europe territory).

I agree, especially for North America as well. Nintendo bungled up the release for the game, and was impossible to get from the get go ( especially in my area). I know many who prefer to buy the game, had to resort to download the iso to play it. If Nintendo would get a clue, they should do a re-release of the game on the Nintendo Wii or WiiU...

Lost Odyssey
The Last Remnant

for me there is no x360 if these games not exclusives

Lon3wolf981d ago

So if The Last Remnant was on Steam (which it is) the 360 ceases to be a good console to you? Or are you talking about console exclusives?

Hicken981d ago

Well, for myself, Lost Odyssey is one of the few reasons I wanted a 360.

kalkano980d ago (Edited 980d ago )

I'm still waiting for a 360 to be dirt cheap, so I can buy it with Lost Odyssey (the only reason I want one). I have The Last Remnant on PC. Too bad they didn't release Lost Odyssey on PC...

Lon3wolf980d ago

@Kalkano, yeah I have a 360 (well the kids use it more nowadays) and LO (will play that again soon too) but a PC release would be nice. TLR with a sweetfx config and making a few changes in one of the ini files and it looks real nice (along with fixing the Unreal Engine texture pop in issue).

Eternal Sonata was beautiful and fun, if only it wasn't for that ending..
