The best rpg ever imo . Even its flaws (the never finished second cd) overall add to its charm .

Enate2591d ago

I agree it is still my favorite rpg of all time and still has no equal. Suikoden II is a close second love of mine.

Xof2591d ago

Why in God's name is Suikoden II up on the PSN yet?

Maywell2591d ago

Me too... Xenogears, Suikoden II, Chrono Cross next...

Even after 13 years, Xenogears never fail to impress me. Too bad, no one make RPG like this anymore. RPG with heavy stories & characters, great music, and great gameplay.

Baka-akaB2591d ago

yeah one of the few i wouldnt mind see remade in hd , instead of releasing a new game .

Inception2591d ago

Agreed, which is why i don't understand that SE not making some colaboration with Tetsuya Takahashi and his wife, Soraya Saga, for Xenogears sequel or remade. Honestly, Xenosaga trilogy are great series, but not in the same level with Xenogears. And Xenogears ending really made me curious what Takahashi and Soraya can deliver for the sequel.

Because like the Dreamcast, though Xenogears has its fanbase - of which I count myself - the game just didn't sell well generally. Xenobalde is spiritual title in the series along with Xenosaga, yet they didn't do so well either. Saga was suppose to be six games but then was cut in half because of how it sold.

it's wasnt as great , but still great . I wish there was an hd remake of the saga trilogy too .

It received a lot of unwarranted flaks , and yet i'm sure it would have been a massive success during the ps3/360 era .

People just werent ready for such an episodic kind of tale . And wanted everything right now .

Godmars2902591d ago

Naw, if the game had been released now on the PS3/360, it would have been an utter mess. A mass Effect clone if were lucky, though given this is the current Square we're talking about, it might have been a better Star Ocean.

Why are europeans constantly shafted in terms of psn releases??

Baka-akaB2591d ago

At least english speakers can easily get it on us psn .

thekiddfran2591d ago

Was a great game,even made saves apart of the story.Just didn't get enough attention from gamers back then.My friends kept taking it from me and never returning it.I think I bought it like six times for that reason.
