Xenoblade has been a great franchise for Nintendo, but it comes nowhere near the greatness of Xenosaga. Xenosaga is better than Xenoblade Chronicles
Xenosaga Episode III is one of the best games I've ever played.
I wonder how the Xenosaha collection is doing... gotta tweet Harada san again...

re-playing all of xenosaga it has depth that no other RPG has and such a unique combat system and some really great gameplay mechanics. and the narrative is better than any modern game by far.
You are massively overrating those games "the narrative is better than any modern game by far" Do you even believe what you say?
The narative is OVER THE TOP! BY FAR! When has it been repeated ?
Everything is debatable. Mind you, one side can be wholly wrong.
Xenogears is king
Xenosaga expanded so much. The third game is the best Takahashi game ever IMO. I love Xenogears, but, it was incomplete. It's great, but Xenosaga is just...so good. It's everything Takahashi ever wanted. He needs to revisit it and finish his epic, at some point, and he is even willing to.
also, xenogears was kinda unfinished. I loved finally reading the translated perfect works though.
I believe in it's salvaged state it is still the best RPG of the console generation. The character and gear design, plot, combat system, and anime cut scenes have put it at #1 on my list and I think it deserves a proper remake alongside FFVII. Will never happen though... :(
I loved playing that
I sold my PS3 thinking it was on the PS4 store. NOPE. I was pretty livid and still am. It's a fantastic game and Takahashi is a master storyteller and one of the best game developers of this era.
I would love a hd remaster of Xenogears and Xenosaga in a collection.
Gears sadly won't happen but Saga likely but you may need a Switch for it.
I think Xenogears is, objectively, the worst game I've ever played. It dragged on and on, the translation was pretty awful, and the second disk just made the whole thing into a joke.
Really can't say I agree. Xenoblade Chronicles, X and 2 are among my favorite games of all time. Just pre-ordered the Pyra statue to add to the collection.
I love them and they are great, but they just lack the depth that Xenosaga has. X is a different kind of game admittedly because it's just more open world, the narrative doesn't play much of a part, and I love Xenoblade 2, it's probably closer to Xenosaga than any of the other games. Though the first one did try to copy it in a lot of ways.
I'm so glad we're still getting Takahashi games, don't get me wrong, just playing Xenosaga again this week (I've gone through all three of them) I realize compared to games today with long cutscenes the gameplay to cutscene ratio isn't that bad at all and it has some excellent gameplay. The mech fights in Xenosaga 3 is so much fun. Have you played any of the Xenosaga Games?
Never could really get into the Xenosaga games.
Any particular reason? At first it may seem hard to get into but the more you play the more you get sucked in. It really is one of the best video game series' of all-time. The narrative, characters and their development, the lore, it's...it's just incredible. I highly recommend it if you still have a ps2. You can get them on ebay for kind of cheap.
I've beaten the games, just couldn't get into them really. I personally thought Xenogears was far better besides the ending that is.
The first game was really slow to get going story wise. Then it had a lull in the middle, but if you could get through those parts, you would find one of the deepest stories in gaming
Xenosaga was one of my favorite series ever as a kid. Mainly the first game in the series. Really didn't even know there were any other things related to it "Xenogears" and "Xenoblade" until just recently.
Read the special works translation for Xenogears. You’ll see connections and how Saga is a re-imagining really but it’s better
Xenogear is better than both Xenosaga & Xenoblade games.
It's unfinished. Have you played all of the games?
Yes, I've played them all. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the others too.
I want a remaster of all. It would make more than they think. The fans are dedicated
No,the game runs out of steam on disc 2 as it feels pretty rushed.
I agree with this, and yet I enjoyed disc 1 so much that I can't help but recommend it to anyone that enjoys a solid rpg. Overall, I may put Xenogears as my favorite rpg as well. Even despite, not bothering to get through disc 2.
Their opinion. Both are great though.
I just read perfect works and I was blown away
I like Xenoblade Chronicles better, but you can't go wrong with Xenogears either. Monolith is incredible.
i have only have xenosaga 1 and 2
3 is the best. eBay it.
Or just wait for the eventual HD collection. It's going to happen this gen.
i tried 1 and 2 and i notice the lip sync is soo bad
Yea I’ll agree but none compare to the glory of Xenogears.
Xenosaga can be. Not Xenoblade
Unpopular opinion Xenogears is the best in the series, though that doesn’t mean I think Xenosaga is bad
I like Xenosaga better BUT I just finished perfect works. Now I have to re-play it.
I think saga was better at exploring all the different factions and themes. Saga focused more on fei and Ellie, and how those things affected them, whereas saga had a much broader scope where everyone played a part. Gameplay wise I find them both equal for their time. Gears is really hard to go back and play now. It hasn't aged well in the graphics department.
I disagree Xenogears is absolutely wonderful and a classic and the superior game in terms of pure gameplay but Xensaga has the better story. Although as a more gameplay oriented person I obviously prefer Xenogears
I think Gears had great gameplay, but it didn't have as much depth as Saga did. Granted, in Saga, you didn't have to go through a lot of that depth of game play to be able to play the game to the end, whereas in Gears, you did have to really get the hang of some of the nuances to not have difficulty later. When it comes to saga though, it kind of depends on which one you're playing, as the game play was changed up here and there throughout the series. The first was pretty generic, the 2nd made it better, and I think they got it right in the 3rd. Both are just as enjoyable for me. Gears biggest thing after all this time is the extensive loading times, and the graphics look awful on an LCD screen. They just didn't age well, but if you can get past that, it still looks good for the time of it's release.
I prefer Chronicles over Saga. Those cut scenes in Saga are just entirely to long they made me lose interest while playing.
Sure they're better than X and 2, but Xenoblade 1 is just the perfect package and has one of the best dubs AND soundtracks in gaming history.
Highly unpopular opinion, I disagree as well.
Xenosaga > Xenoblade
I love Xenogears and Xenosaga but I disagree with this take. Takahashi has continued to mature with each subsequent game and Xenoblade and 2 represent his best work so far.
No it’s not
Saga is good but no. Saga suffers from far too much anime bs and cutscenes. Blade offers far more gameplay and tosses out a lot of JRPG BS and took some western influences in a good balance of both.
Xenogears > all, but yes, I agree with the headline.
Xenoblade Chronicles outsold so there’s that.
