JRPGs I Should be Playing (Other than Final Fantasy)

I know I’m known as the CE Queen right now, but years ago, I was the JRPG Queen. Zippers. Big swords. Airships. Spikey hair. Protagonists with severe memory loss. I was all over every single one of them. Somewhere down the line, probably around the time when Arc Rise Fantasia released (God, I shudder to remember that JRPG), I fell out of the JRPG loop. I turned toward shooters, action games, and western RPGs such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and The Witcher. The only JRPGs that have graced my consoles in quite sometime have been of the Final Fantasy nature or Kingdom Hearts remasters. There’s definitely more to the JRPG world than Final Fantasy, as much as I have a love/hate relationship with it.

Edge of Eternity Kickstarter looks amazing and I backed it the second I saw it. Looks like what I wanted out of Final Fantasy.

I bought Ni no Kuni 2 years ago and got buried in my backlog of games. Gonna follow your advice and play it as soon as I finish the game I'm currently playing.

For a minute I thought you wrote that you had bought Ni no Kuni "part" 2.

Was about to jump on google and find a copy.

People always say Grandia 1 is the better game.

I think Grandia 2 is underrated, its just as good.

I like all 3, but there's just something in Justin's adventure that makes it stand out the most to me.

I saw this game on wondered if the story would keep me engaged. The combat looks very good, and rather difficult. Is it worth breaking my ps3 out of my storage?

the story doesn't make much sense but it doesn't matter because the characters are very likeable...
