Re: Favorite RPG game

I was so excited to learn today that my friend is going to lend me her PS2.

I owned a PS1 that I got from a freind long ago and I had a couple Medal of Honor Games, Grand Turismo, Siphon Filter, Chocobo Racing. I sold it and my N64 to get a GC.

Now I can FINALLY play some Final Fantasy games. All I've ever played was Final Fantasy 1 & 2 (Dawn of Souls (GBA)).

Any other MUST PLAY PS2 RPG's ?

Re: Favorite RPG game

I'm taking Golden Sun out of my favorites, and replacing it with Paper Mario: TTYD. After playing TTYD, Golden Sun really shows how weak it is...

I'm playing Super Mario RPG right now, and while the gameplay feels really outdated compaired to TTYD, I'm still having a blast with the game! The characters, boss battles, and the story are all very memorable.

Re: Favorite RPG game

Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. They're 2 of my favourite games ever. I love the battle system for each of them, and the dialogue and jokes are excellent.

Re: Favorite RPG game

^ Thanks for the suggestions. I definatly look those up.

I'm for sure going to play FFX and FFX2 and it seems she doesn't use the PS2 at all so hopefully I'll get to keep it for a long while so I can play alot of RPG's (which is the main reason I would play a PS in the first place)

I just picked up Etrian used and really like it even though I've barely gotten anywhere yet. Shades of Phantasy Star, Wizardry, and some other things in its playstyle. I'm a sucker for games that center around exploration and discovery.
yeah It's a fun game. I'm on...the 6th floor of the labrynth I beleive. It's alot of fun, although a bit lacking in story, but I don't mind that too much. I also like that you get to map it out instead of the map just apearing as you move to it, like in other dungeon crawlers. The only other dungeon crawlers or games similar to this that I have played would be, eye of the beholder for gba, which was good, swords and serpants, for the NES which had the crappiest combat sytem I've ever seen, and double dungeon, which isn't really much fun unless your playing with another person. Maybe I will check out "Wizardy" what system is it for? DS?

EDIT:

I forgot to mention, that Orcs and Elves is another REALLY good dungeon crawler. The only difference is that it's not turn based, it's combat is similar to that of oblivion, first person prospective. They also have a crappier version of orces and elves available for cell phones, but I would suggest you get the beefier DS version if you decide to get the game.

It's cool. Sorry if I sounded like an ass about it. Point taken, but I still reserve my right to be lazy.

Supposedly there's more of a story as you get near the end of the game, but since I'm only on the third floor, I can't confirm that. It makes sense, though; it seems like the type of game where the story can't be told until you start finding pieces of it yourself.

Wizardry is an old series of games for the PC. It's fairly well-known by most fans of the genre and seems well-liked overall. There was a recent addition on the PS2, but I know absolutely nothing about its quality or availability. I did glance at GameFAQs and the people who reviewed it seem to think quite highly of it.

Re: Favorite RPG game

Without a doubt, Chrono Cross is the best game I have ever played in my life. I loved legend of zelda alot, but Chrono Cross was just absolutely amazing. If you haven't played chrono cross, you haven't played a good RPG game. Simple as that

Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal.

One Hundred new and creative pokemon, an extremely large overworld with so much to do, and a very, very deep combat system makes it so awesome.

Quoted for Truth. Quoted for Win.

Johto is my most favorite, and I have been unable to replicate such a wonderful experience since. :/

Re: Favorite RPG game

So have any significant improvements been made to the Pokemon series over the years? I played the first ones when they first came out, but even back then I thought they played like outdated 8-bit NES RPGs, which was forgivable because that's essentially what the Game Boy was made for. But then I played a GBA one several years later, and it still felt like Dragon Quest I with a variation on Dragon Quest V's monster taming system.

Have they changed since, or are they still virtually the same? I always see people praising them and I can't tell if it's because they're actually good or if it has something to do with the lack of RPGs on Nintendo platforms. Or is it just nostalgic, old-school fun?

Not only have they remained virtually unchanged, they're basically identical. In fact, the only things they've incorporated since G/S/C are abilities. Everything else only gives you a little bit more information (such as personality traits. Not new, just more informative towards Deviation Values, which if you use at all, you suck), or is insignificant. Believe me it's only gotten worse. But Gold/Silver and crystal stand today as my favorite RPG. Period.

I don't touch any of the Final Fantasy, Dragonquest, Paper Mario, or any/all japanese trash. Now let me go don my Fireproof suit real quick here. Open the floodgates.

Well, the series has been improved and refined with each new installment, but not in the way that many people want or expect. Game Freak seems to pay more attention to the battle system and multiplayer elements; they mostly choose to add more strategic depth, fix game balance, implement online play, and stuff like that. Nostalgia might contribute something to the games' charm, but the real meat lies outside the main game itself.

The basic premise of the RPG portion is essentially the same. There's slightly more of a plot each time, but it's still nothing special. If you're primarily looking for a game with memorable characters and an epic storyline, Pokemon isn't going to deliver.

My stance: I personally think they're great games, but I also think they fall way short as traditional RPGs. Whether or not you'll like them depends on what you want out of them.

Thats fine, you play your watered down RPG designed for 5 year olds and we'll play the good stuff. =]

Btw, Pokemon is a Japanese game too. -_-;

Yeah, but not Japanese trash as Andy specifically pointed out.

(Not that I'm agreeing with that statement)

Re: Favorite RPG game

Ah, RPGs... My favorite gaming genre.
As some of you know, well I'm sure not most of you know. but I've said many times on ther other threads about RPGs being my favorite genre.
Lets see... there's so many.

1. Any square game, especially all the final fantasies. (I like 7, but I don't see what's so "great" about it. It got a movie I think that's why people like it.)

2. Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia: AMAZING GAME! It's on the PS2, and it's kinda old, but seriously... it's got a great story line, very unique "dive system". Also there's no MP restrictions except for the Ravytales which it regenerates (they sing to cast spells... how cool?)

3. Any tales games, I've only played 2, but I can just assume the rest are just as great!

4. Folklore: Great storyline it mixes murder, mystery and fantasy all in one. Great charcters too

There's more, but I can't think right now.
