This website gets it's
Grandia 3
Skies of Arcadia
Vagrant Story
Ff 9 (this x 1000000000000000)

Would have also liked to see Chrono Cross on there to.

Ah man... Don't even make me think about a Final Fantasy IX remake! That game was so good... Sad it was so underrated. I think Gamespot gave it like a 7 or something. :\

TheLyonKing2185d ago (Edited 2185d ago )

They gave it an 8.5 but some things they threw up were pretty unjust.

It's a great game and homage to the older final fantasies, still play it to this day.

Snookies122185d ago

Ah okay, must be thinking of a different review site that gave it a 7.

I agree though, it was a good return to form for the older fans of the series. I actually started up another new game on it earlier today. Truly a splendid game, no doubt.

styferion2185d ago

wholly agree with FFIX, my favourite entry in the series. In fact I just finished it a few days ago.

my own 10 list would be:
Legend of Dragoon
Legend of Legaia
Suikoden 2
Arc the Lad 1,2,3
Chrono Trigger
Tales of Destiny

ZeroX98762185d ago

chrono Trigger, legend of legaia and legend of dragoon are surely on my top list

Magicite2185d ago

chrono cross and I would be sold!

Couldn't have said it better. Whatever "it" is, about video games, this website or this writer gets/understands "it".

DQ 8 in HD ? :-)

nirwanda2185d ago

Dragon force and Panza dragoon are amazing, couldn't get in ff9 with the way it starts, played most of these games.

kewlkat0072185d ago (Edited 2185d ago )

I'm not big on remakes but I agree with the first post.. playing FF9 currently at Life Tree.

I would add Shadow Hearts trilogy, especially Covenant to that list as well.

Inception2185d ago (Edited 2185d ago )

I second that!

PE 1 & 2 with FF 13 graphics would be cool. But keep the gameplay untouch because they already great.

Btw, my top 10 jrpg HD remakes personal list:

1. Wild Arms series
2. PE 1 & 2
3. Front Mission series
4. Breath of Fire series
5. Dark Cloud 1-2
6. Tales of Destiny
7. Xenosaga 1-3
8. Vagrant Story
9. Valkyrie Chronicles 1-3
10. Legend of Dragoon

TheGreenMan2185d ago

Solid list. Can't find much to disagree with, except that I'd rather have a xenogears remake instead of xenosaga.

rainslacker2185d ago

I would personally prefer that they just finish the Xenosaga series. It was supposed to be 6 games, and they did leave it pretty open at the end.

Sad for me, since it was one of my favorite RPG's for the story alone, although the game play was pretty repetitive.

Doubt Namco is interested in doing so and they own the IP, and Monolith is now with Nintendo, so may not have enough install base to even be considered.

Knightofelemia2185d ago

I agree a nice Xenosaga trilogy would be excellent same with Grandia. I also wouldn't mind Wild Arms, Lunar, Ar Tonelico, Y's , Arc the Lad, Legend of Dragoon, Breath of Fire, Super Mario RPG? All seeing the light again there are so many great RPGs from the past an HD Remake of Shenmue 1&2 would also be on my list for RPGS HD remakes.
