Read my last post.

Not everything is about you, avalanch!  We have important pedantry to discuss.
It doesn't really matter if that one was a jrpg or not, since it wasn't the one I was initially looking for but managed to stumble upon anyways.  Anyways, I would categorize it as a arpg.

In the first place I never thought of JRPG and action RPG as being in any way incompatible...
Maybe, but categorizing something as a JRPG and then comparing it to a final fantasy title is INCREDIBLY misleading if your game is more like Alundra, Zelda, or in this case Threads of Fate. Also, I think using the term jrpg at this point to describe a type of rpg is pretty outdated unless you're referring to an old style of rpg...I could be a little offbase here but I feel like I'm not the minority in this line of thinking...

Well actually that wasn't it but it was one of the games I was looking for, so I decided to call it quits on hunting around yesterday...  I believe in the jrpg I was talking about, you use a blueish axe like this?  Not all blue... but blueish.

Turns out, it was Threads of Fate on the PS1.

Definitely wasn't Shining Force EXA but I do believe it was a arpg like SFEXA was.

We could try to narrow it down to what arpg's fit that style around 1998-2004

I'm going to condense some points I made into one reply.

* I think it was more of a ARPG if I remember, almost like secret of mana I think. Also I might be wrong but it looked like you could view the items you gathered in a gallery? Again not too sure, only had probably 5 minutes played of it.
I do remember that the map (that I was on) strongly gave off similarities to ff4 maps.

* If I remember, the overworld style was 2d like ff4 and I believe the character had a axe and you attacked stuff by swinging?
Ar Tonelico I don't think this one is it but I might check it out. Definitely wasn't Soul Nomad or FF Tactics style.
Imagine finding a chest on a overworld map that resembles grassy, woodland style overworld map on final fantasy 4.

* May not have been PS2 but it was definitely eagleeye style 2D overworld. I'd like to say around the time they had mario party demos & dreamcast displays, or close to that time frame.
 I'd like to say this reminds me of it, it kindof resembled this, except in a grassy setting with chests. Minus the bridges, ladders & cave exits..

* No it's not Lunar or Beyond the Beyond but Secret of Mana & Ys: The Ark of Napishtim, so far to me seem to bear the most resemblence to it except SoM's graphics look dated compared to it...

* It wasn't like ff tactics or ogre battle, at all.

*  I definitely think it was on one of the many demo disks.. and you're immediately in the grassy area, no towns or anything if I recall.

Hi, I remember playing a ps2 rpg a very long time ago at a store.
I believe it was on a demo or promo disc. Maybe it wasn't on one, I honestly can't remember since it's been so many years.
So what I remember of it, is it was a 2D JRPG and the part that I remember playing on was a grassy area with FF4 or Chrono Trigger style looking hills, I remember somewhere along that area was a (wooden?) treasure chest with I believe a weapon in it? Sorry if I can't give any more details about it but I barely remember much more than that about the game. Any ideas on what game it was?

Update
Secret of Mana & Ys: The Ark of Napishtim, so far to me seem to bear the most resemblence to it except SoM's graphics look dated compared to it...

There's an ongoing discussion about it below, feel free to chime in here or on reddit if you have any ideas.
