Multiplayer RPGs / ARPGs (Diablo and the like)
« on: October 14, 2017, 02:02:14 AM »
Hey everyone,

The past couple of years I've strayed away from my love of JRPGs and have gotten into ARPGs. I only recently got a PC for gaming ( always been on consoles previously). Started with Diablo 3. I've also played a lot of Torchlight 2, Path of Exile, Grim Dawn, Marvel Heroes, and went back a bit to play Diablo 2.

I think a lot of my reasons for the shift in genres has to do with having a busier schedule with more responsibilities. I don't feel like I have to emerse myself as much in a hack n' slash ARPG, and they're easy to jump in and out of without having to remember some complicated mechanic.

Anybody else consider these types of games to be their favorite genre of RPG? Looking to hear from fellow fans, and maybe meet some friends to game with.

What do you love about the genre? Favorite games? Reasons?

Thanks all.

Single-Player RPGs / SRPGs for a Newbie

Hello all,

So I have always been a fan of JRPGs since Final Fantasy VII. I also love Kingdom Hearts, Tales series, and Pokemon. The past few years I have basically been playing more Western RPGs mainly from Bethesda and Bioware.

So all this time spent playing games, but I have never picked up and played a strategy or tactics RPG. I have heard the many praises of FF Tactics, Fire Emblem, and Disgaea. I really want to give this genre a shot so I can see if I enjoy it or not. The problem is I feel a bit intimidated by the genre which is probably why I've never played one.

So my question is, what is a good SRPG for a newbie. Something perhaps with an extensive tutorial. A game that defines the genre well, and is inviting for a new player. I have a PS Now subscription and was contemplating Disgaea 3 or 4, but I wanted to hear opinions from experienced gamers. Appreciate any feedback. Thanks everyone.
