Trendy Gamers: It is a very good time to be a player of RPGs. Even though at the start of this console generation it had seemed like most of the good RPGs had simply disappeared, RPGs are now abundant in number. Whether you are looking for classic RPG action or newer, more forward thinking RPG action, you can find it on one platform or another. There are however, several RPG series that have seemingly died on us over the years. These are the five RPG series’ that I miss the most.

Legend of Dragoon

TrendyGamers2450d ago

There was a rumour a little way back that said Skies of Arcadia would be coming to XBLA and if its true, it'll be a day one purchase for me.

Dante1122450d ago

Dark Cloud, how I miss thy.

Shikoro2449d ago

Oh yes, one of my favorite RPGs of all time. Dark Chronicle, that is. Haven't played Dark Cloud, but I'll get to that. :D

Shadow hearts is awesome !

I want another sukidoen as well, collection new members to join your party is as addictive as collection pokemon

falloutx2450d ago

Yeah the Shadow hearts series are great games
Shadow hearts 2 is the best in the series but Shadow hearts 3 has the best combat.

laoboy_Smoke2450d ago

Brave Fenser Musashi.. I miss so much.. pls put on ps store!

Relientk772450d ago

Brave Fencer Musashi is one of my favorite games ever.

NeoSprtacus2449d ago

I first learned what dung was with Brave Fencer Musashi...

Inception2450d ago

Also don't forget Wild Arms. I loved Wild Arms XF on PSP, but i miss a new Wild Arms on console. Damn sony! can they hired Level 5 or Media Vision to make Wild Arms 6 on PS3?

NeXXXuS2450d ago

Forgot Vagrant Story :P

CarlitoBrigante2449d ago

Legend of Dragoon and Xenogears need to return! One of the best rpg's Ive ever played

I really don't miss any series but I do miss the variety.

TooTall192450d ago (Edited 2450d ago )

I miss games like Dark Cloud. I hope to pick up a ps2 and another copy of Dark Cloud 2 to play through this summer.

TrendyGamers2450d ago

I need to replay and finally beat Dark Cloud 2. I got to the final area and stopped because it was just too much work.

Shikoro2449d ago

Same as me. X(

Such a wonderful game. :'(

Shivan2450d ago

How can I miss when this has been one of the best japanese rpg eras in modern history? with awesome titles on no less than 5 platforms?

Lets look at the companies in question and what awesome stuff theyve done

Level - dragon quest IX, ninokuni, d' arc, inazuma eleven.......

The team who did shadow hearts, went on to do lost oddessy, enough said

grandia team has made a bunch of things but my favorite is the 3ds rpg REXX.

Then we come to capcom - Yes they really dont do rpgs at all anymore, but they have done monster hunter, and 3 games in the megaman battle network series this gen

Glass is half full

Breath of Fire, Suikoden (there's a new PSP title, but no port for US), Vakyrie Profile, Wild ARMs, SaGa (Frontier or Romancing) and many others, not to mention the series that are around, but don't deliver anything close to past gens like Star Ocean or Final Fantasy.

Shivan2450d ago

breath of fire is a dead series granted ( but there are plenty of new rpg ips this gen)

suikoden has had 2 new entriesw ( whether the psp game comes to the US is irrelevant big time for now)

a new entry in the valkyrie profile, wild arms, saga series have been made this gen as well as awesome entries in the SO and ff series
