The PlayStation 1 had a ton of great games. But, the RPG genre really took off on this system. Before you scroll down and roll your eyes at the #1 choice, know you can play any of these games and you should have a fantastic experience.
I think that Darkstone song is going to haunt my dreams.
Suikoden 1&2 were life.
I was an N64 kid, so I didn't play a lot of these until years after release, but the original Playstation was definitely the best jrpg platform since the SNES.
Diablo, Darkstone and FF5 being in the list but not Thousand Arms and Persona? OK. Also no Koudelka and Guardians Crusade :(
Oh dude, koudelka! Those were the days
Please make list for PS4 as well as I really struggle with JRPGs on this console. Gone are PS2 glory days of RPGs.
True, it's not as great as the PS1/PS2 golden years. But I'll still try my best! In no order: 1. Persona 2. Ni No Kuni 2 3. Final Fantasy XV 4. Final Fantasy VII Remake 5. Disgaea 5 6. Dragon Quest XI 7. Tales of Berseria 8. Ys VIII 9. Valkyria Chronicles 4 10. Sakura Wars 11. Trails of Cold Steel series(awesome series) Hope this helps!
Thanks. I have played all of the except Sakura wars and waiting for FF VII remake in sales, it is on Black Friday sale but still expensive for me. These are all main stream JRPGs I wonder if there are good hidden gems which are there like Shadow Hearts in PS2 days.
Shadow Hearts is still my top 5 JRPG games.
Nice list Of course mine would be different but so is everybody else. My inclusion: Saga Frontier and Wild arms 1.
