KH2 was a step forward in every aspect of the gameplay.

Unfortunately the story turned to shit.
And button mashing was the way to go, mostly.

Heh, just about to say that. I had to put KH2 on Proud before I was able to enjoy it. It was too easy to fall into just mashing the X-button, otherwise. Even then, when things got hectic, that's what I tended to do. And for the record, I never found mashing X to be very effective in KH1, especially since Magic was more important in that game.

I thin it's stupid that Nomura is acting like a pisshead about KH3 because the handheld's haven't sold up to snuff... but I do say that Birth By Sleep is not only the best in the series (weird for a spinoff), but one of the best games I played that entire year.

This. This this this. BbS was surprisingly and quite unexpectedly beautiful.

I like this series. I think KH2 was this incredible step forward, and then most everything after that was steps backward (until BbS).

Just curious (since nobody's actually explained it to me before) but how did you think KH2 was a step forward?

Am I the only one who hates cross-universe stuff? I mean I just can't stand square + disney..... not saying the games are bad, in fact in all honestly I can't give em a fair shot because square + disney is like dipping chocolate in ketchup to me.... in other words, its something I would never think to do and doesn't appeal to me in the least....

Yet it tastes delicious (okay, not really, but KH does work).

Anyways, KH1 is my favorite RPG of all time, and unlike some people on this board, I haven't lost my love for the series. KH: Chain of Memories was great, and tied the first two games quite nicely. KH2, as I've mentioned in my first post ever here, was the most disappointing game I've ever played. Luckily Birth By Sleep and 358/2 Days made up for that. 3D looks like it could top both of them and I'm really looking forward to it.^_^

I still feel that the "just ok" games get elevated to awesome status because of the general lack of any real competition.

I think I know what you mean. I have a friend who says the PS3 is a must-have if you like JRPGs, but when ever I ask him what great games the PS3 has, he tends to list stuff like Ar Tonelico Qoga, Trinity Universe, and Hyperdimension Neptunia - games that are okay in most respects, but not really that great.

Man, I don't want to sound like an asshole but how old is he? I can't imagine anyone that has played RPGs since at least the PSone and/or PS2 days saying that those games are great. Personally I think that those titles are garbage, but hey, there is an audience for those types of RPGs and there's nothing wrong about that. But what happenned with games like Valkyria Chronicles, Nier, Demon's Souls or even Disgaea 4?

He sometimes lists Nier and Demon's Souls too, it's just that he seems to put those other games on about the same level as Demon's Souls and Nier. As for his age, lets just say he's been playing RPGs since the NES era, yet he doesn't seem as tied down to the past as most. Hell, last time I asked him what his favorite RPGs were the oldest game he listed was Morrowind and King's Field IV. Granted, he seems to see the good in all RPGs, I think he's definitely exaggerating the quality of most PS3 JRPGs just because there aren't as many to play. Even if they are his kinda games, there are better games in those niches, some of which I'm sure he's played.

Can somebody who disagrees with me actually respond to what I wrote?  I feel like a lot of people are just throwing up their hands saying there are no good console JRPGs without actually looking.  I just listed 6 quality console titles that out to all be out in 2012: Tales of Graces f, Atelier Meruru, Xenoblade Chronicles, FFXIII-2 (though admittedly I'm still a little skeptical on that one), Ni no Kuni, and The Last Story.

I disagreed, and while I'm not exactly dead serious about the subject, with a tendency to somewhat inflate the issue beyond its actual scale, there is one thing worth pointing out about your argument:
Most of the "good jRPGs" you named aren't even out yet. That right there is a sign that things aren't looking too hot at the moment, since any one of them may very well turn out to be a dud.

Yeah, you really have a point there. I got a PS3 mostly for those upcoming games, but I don't see much to play out of what's already on the system. Disgaea 4 and both Atelier games, but that's really it for me as far as JRPGs go. I was anticipated 3 other games, but they all turned out to be duds (Ar Tonelico, Rune Factory, and Hyper something or other Neptunia...those are the only games I've been wrong about since I first started playing RPGs). So yeah, things aren't looking good right now, and if those other games turn out to be duds, things'll be even worse.

I'll just wait and see if it's still there in January.

Is that Suikoden V on the list I see?

So yeah, I've been paying almost zero attention to this game for the longest time, but I just found out it has towns, mini-games, dialogue choices that are actually worth something, and multiple endings. I think I may actually like this game, provided the monster-raising and randomish encounters don't grate on my nerves too much.

This is apparently the chocobo theme if you can believe that...

EDIT: Scratch that, this is, most likely: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFhy6n4R4I4

At least I hope it is, that other song's just awful IMHO. Totally kills my ears.

Yay, it's coming to the PSP, that means I can...import it. Yes.

Yippee, they kept the London accents! I don't know why I'm excited about that, but I am.

What a coincidence, I just bought this game, and the premium edition at that. Looks like it'll be worth the price, judging from what I'm reading in the thread.
