I would love some collections of older titles. A PC/Console port of Tales of Innocence would also be very nice.

autobotdan1015d ago

Tales of Desiny 1&2 4k collection would be nice

Vits1015d ago

For those I would like more a remake.

autobotdan1015d ago

Unfortunately both those games already had official Namco remakes on Playstation 2. They were Japan exclusives. Your talking about a 2nd Remake of the Playstation 2 Remakes? Haha Lol

Einhander19711015d ago

A new Ridge racer would be great, PS5 please.

autobotdan1015d ago

Tekken 8 please without any of the over the top crazy guest characters. Tekken doesn't need the Walking Dead tv show characters. And it doesn't need Robocop or Terminator lol


Which JRPGs Should FFXVI Fans Play Next?

Final Fantasy XVI is a thrilling action-heavy spin on the RPG formula, and other JRPGs like Tales of Arise and NieR:Automata are just as exciting.

shinoff218390d ago

I'd say try one of the older final fantasy games. 6, 7, or 9. That's final fantasy at its best.

cemelc89d ago

I would agree with you. but 16 is nothing like those.

Whoever liked 16 probably wont like turn based probably, gameplay is too much of a departure from older games

closed_account89d ago (Edited 89d ago )

Dynasty Warriors , because they like mashing the X button to exhaustion. (any of them - they're all basically the same w minor tweaks) If FFXVI can be considered a jrpg, then so can Dynasty Warriors. You get XP, level up, and it was made in Japan. These are the prerequisites that people argued here were the only thing needed to make a jrpg. So who knows? 🤷

**But seriously, I would say the Tales Series. I really liked Tales of Arise... some people don't. The stories are hit and miss sometimes, but I still enjoy them to some extent. Tales of Berseria is good if you like a darker story. There's a bit more typical JRPG tactics and ability utilization aside from the action focus of the game.

closed_account89d ago

My apologies - I actually hate the Dynasty Warriors series, I wouldn't really recommend it. I was just trying to make a point. 😂

S2Killinit89d ago (Edited 89d ago )

Not necessarily. Personally, I like turn based and I also like live action, both contingent on it being done right.

shinoff218389d ago

Cemic your right. Just my sad attempt to get people to play the old schools

Road to Zanarkand holds a special place in my memories. Haven't played it for probably 15 years but Auron was 👌 Awesome music and story.

Flawlessmic89d ago

Ahhh your speaking my language!!!

Auron is my fav FF character, I just thought he was so dam boss when I was younger hahaha

Knightofelemia90d ago

Any Tales games even the ones before Arise, Trails games are also good, so are the Y's games.

cemelc89d ago

Tales are awesome, Arise doesnt have the best story, but it has really good gameplay

shinoff218389d ago

I thought arises story was pretty damn good

RedDevils88d ago (Edited 88d ago )

Shadow Heart or The legend of Heroes beat it all day.

jznrpg89d ago

Hopefully the next Ys game gets localized sooner than later. It’s due out in Japan in September but no word for the rest of the world yet.

Obelisk9289d ago

Tales of Arise is one of the best JRPGs I've played in recent memory... absolutely masterful

andy8589d ago

Played pretty much all of the big ones so mine will be Atelier Marie remake 😂 ill need something relaxing after 2 playthroughs of FFXVI

bRuud8389d ago

Cyberpunk 2077 next for me together with FFXIV online, which will take me like forever.

P_Bomb88d ago

I’m gonna hop back on FF14 once I wrap up my new releases.
