I would add Witcher 3 and for the fans of old cRPGs, Divinity:Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity and/or Wasteland 2. Especially since the author wrote about D&D

I wonder how many people have no idea what kind of dice those are? ;D

yellowgerbil298d ago

is there ANY rpgs out there that have a nice production value (voice acting and no pixel art) that has gameplay like Final Fantasy 10? That is like the only jrpg I have ever really liked and it seems like all the rpgs either go for a crap mmo hack and slash thing or some annoying time limit chaotic mess. I want just a simple turned based game but with top notch visuals and story

checked it out on youtube and seems a bit chaotic for my taste. I don't know what it is with Japan and things popping up like combos etc that just really turn me off. give me a clean UI over a ADD riddled mess any day.

If you have a PS3 or PSvita or PC with steam you can get two of the best JRPGs ever made called....: The Legend of heros, triails of cold steel 1 & 2 they should be played in order. The summon spells will be replaced with S-Craft (special crafts) and the music will be like Final Fantasy 6 and 7. The first one will last a person that is not trying to skip stuff about 130 hours. The second one will last about 180 hours.

Many Final Fantasy games have been turn-based and (optional/switchable) active-turn-based, however, Final Fantasy 10 was turn-based only. This is not denigrating FF10 it is just stating a fact and I really did like FF10 so I am not biased.

There are plenty of RPG's that are turn-based for the PS4 and XB1 you just have to look for them. Of course, what I may like in a turn-based game you may not like and vice versa.

Personally, I don't mind action (hack and slash Is, not my thing) RPG's such as the Souls/Borne games but one game Tales of Xilla" (PS3) deserves the award for the only RPG that gave me RSI for two weeks (Tales of Berseria looks similar - played the demo - lost interest).

You could try the "Atelier" games (The "mysterious" series) although I would not recommend paying full price (I got Atelier Sophie for under $20 AUD). What I like about this game is the fact that you can program your background music (up to ten random music scores per area) so you don't have to listen to the same music all the time. The game is split between making things (Alchemy) picking up items and combat.

Note1: You can download free music (I found this fine) or pay for some if you wish. There are microtransactions but they are not in your face.

Note2: Alchemy is not overly complex but you do have to think - have a pen and paper handy.

Don't be fooled by the turn-based combat if you don't prepare the right weapons, armor and items with Alchemy you can easily be wiped out in one turn. Story-wise it's ok, as is the voice acting (English or Japanese) but graphically it is heavily detailed Anime influenced (thankfully no pixel art which I despise). Lenght of the game is about 40 to 60 hours. Walkthroughs can help although where to go is pretty obvious but it still will take you some time to complete the game. Maximum level is 20 but then you start to level your attributes.

If only the Shadow heart series got a remake or Suikoden, I think you would love it.

Logged in for the first time in years just to say that Ys VIII lacrimosa of dana is one of the best rpgs on ps4. It's super under the radar. Go buy it

RedDevils297d ago

I agree, good game finished it but I sold it and grab xeno chronicle 2.

The combat is so fluid and enjoyable. The story is very interesting as well, it constantly throws new elements at you.
