Oh God, I totally disagree.  Too many RPGs are being released now.  And a lot of them range from aboslute shit to just plain mediocre.  I remember the days when you'd get one to three RPGs a year and they were all awesome.  Now you just get too many damned sub-par fillers.

Yeah, god forbid we do some research to avoid the shit games and yield 3-6 worthwhile RPGs a year over 1-3, depending on how lucky we are with a localization company! Also, more companies giving a genuine damn about the translation quality of the games, and not frequently running around butchering things, but I guess stuff like that's pretty minor. :p

Also, not all RPGs were great.

Anyone hoping for a US release? Here's the RPGFan news story about the official site opening, and the screenshots look good and seem resized properly for the PSP. It's sounding like there's more than enough new content to appease SCEA, and with the first one coming out I'm having some hope this'll come out too.

I can't remember a time when I didn't realize those games weren't RPGs. Closest is knowing of Zelda as an Adventure game right off the bat... But I've kinda stuck to that anyway. :P

I do, however, remember a time when I thought all games were made by Nintendo.

XSII's gameplay may be just that; it was for me. But some people don't mind, or flat out love the battle system. If you're intolerant of long battles though, you may be better off reading a synopsis.

Both are teenagers, but Justin was written in a more childish manner while Eikichi was written in a darker, grittier manner.

Dude, how the fuck can anyone nicknamed "Captain Underwear" be dark and gritty? :P

DDS1 /could/ be a problem, but I frequently see that used on GameStops/EBs, I believe for $35. And DDS2 is on GS/EB's website for $40 new, so those two are also the best to start off with due to being relatively common.

you know i get this a lot when all i wanted is to understand why he liked it.
my reason for not liking it was quite simple.i found the difficulty a bit to harsh,and i found myself at dhoulmagus sorely underleveled and levels dont come easy in that game.

The way you typed it came off as 'lol fuck that shitty series who the hell likes it'. Though if you still want to know why, I guess it's just the feeling of adventure, and the fact it /is/ so reminiscent of older RPGs.

Check out the Digital Devil Saga games and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, though I recommand DDS more for your first shot of the SMT series of games. People are suggesting SuikII, and that's /very/ good, but SuikV is newer and much easier to find, and loved by a lot of people here so I'd grab that if you have trouble finding II. III is also, arguably, a great title, but that's better played after 1 and 2. Make sure to check out DQVIII too unless you hated the old DQ/DW games. It may be worth a look even if you did though.

XS1 and 2 I'd be weary on; nevertheless both games run for 20 or less so it's not like they're exactly risky purchases. I personally loved XS1 while abhorring 2 for the most part, though I know quite a few people here hate XS1 too. Personally, I'm hoping that XS3 restores the series enough for one final outting.

I think it's not about what games some other guys hate, but what games seem to be hated by the majority, or at least the majority around here. Probably not as reliable a benchmark as the sites and publications since you can just hit GameRankings.com to be sure, but eh.

Bogatyr: The topic reads reviews/people. So, yes, I'd say having several fanboys bashing it on forums counts, though for 'lots of people didn't like it' and not 'underrated by reviewers'. But if people seriously believe that critics underrated CC, maybe they need to look around a bit more.

Edit: Though yes, I suppose FFVII can count. But I think the throngs of fanboys, and the fact at least half of us recognize it as being a legitimately good game make that a bit harder to argue for.

That, uhhh, came out in Europe. Anyways, decent looking roster of games I suppose; I wish DQV would come out here though.

why? if its anything liek dragon quest 8 it sucks. i swear that game got worse the more i played it.

Yeah, god forbid they bring out games you don't like but others might, such as myself. I fucking loved DQVIII personally. :P

There's only one case I can think of off the top of my head that mandates it being the old fashioned camera, and that was the final fight.

Zelda II.

And if your name is Eusis or you're just an asshat, then it was probably Shadowrun back in 1993.

... Zelda II's closer than most Zeldas anyway. It has towns and levels and stuff. :P

Are you sure? I never saw it, back in the day... maybe I missed it :/

I recall reading that in a magazine, and it was a pretty big deal about how it came out over in PAL territories but not in America. Plus, Terranigma wasn't the name of the japanese release. :P

So I recently had the chance to finally play some games that were never released in Europe, well when I say play I mean dabble as I haven't decided which ones to play first. I have acquired the following games:

Dragon Quest 4,5,6
Bahamut Lagoon
Seiken Densetsu 3
FF iii
Secret of Evermore
Star Ocean

That, uhhh, came out in Europe. Anyways, decent looking roster of games I suppose; I wish DQV would come out here though.
