From this list I have all of them, even the ones in the "Honorable Mentions"... next!

Nocturne is the best from the list. Persona and FFX are pretty good. It's kinda stupid he put Digital Devil Saga and Suikoden and mentioning he hasn't played them. Odin Sphere is wonderful, but those framerate problems are a b*tch! Great list.

so true.

Final Fantasy X - The most Multi layered, well thought out game ever made.

Tidus is NOT annoying. Tidus actually has emotions of high and low. He isn't Monotone like Cloud, Cecil, or Squall--which are all great Characters, but don't diss Tidus.

Want Annoying? See FFXII. "LETS GO SAVE DALMASCA! Look at ME! I have no SHIRT ON!"

People rip on FFXII all the time but I loved it. Not very deep I guess, but it was fun and had a great world.

However, I have just started playing FFX, and I have to say I enjoy the story a lot more. The gameplay is fun, but I wouldn't say it was better than XII, just different.

Star Ocean 2 is still the best though!

Edit: I'm really interested in Nocturne, wish I could find a copy

I liked FFXII. It had lots of action in it, and the new battle system was really fun to work with, especially when grinding. I prefer this over random battles. Sometimes I'm high enough level that I just don't want to bother with the guys. Yeah, the story REALLY sucked because it lacked in many different spots, but the gameplay mechanics, graphics, and music don't disappoint.

I think people are just too set on the turn based battles, and if they are, they better change that mindset before FFXIII comes out.

Agree with xionpunk FFXII is a great game (the main character is very Metro though). Even though I have a PS3 im thinking about Picking up a PS2 for my sons room so he can play Kingdom Hearts, Jak and Ratchet and Clank

I completely agree with what you say. FFXII is bad and shallow. It has a nice production value but no real depth.

Why is it the only side quests they could come up with involved more battling? I think the main game involves more than enough battling already.

Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne / Lucifer's Call is really good, it changes from the naive kiddy japanese RPG games. Dark Chronicle / Dark Cloud 2 is also a must-have, i passed many times on it and is full of ingenious stuff.

OMG after I read this article I was hankering for some rpg action and went to ebay and Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne lowest price is 60 bucks

lwelyk3540d ago

Try looking for one at gamestop, it's cheaper there.

The game got a reprint a few months ago. Looks like it's rare again. Get DDS, the best alternative. Battle system is the same as Nocturne, but you can't collect demons and etc. The story is incredible, and the game is much flexible than Nocturne.
