Haven't really been a big fan of too many JRPG's on the current gen consoles. My favorites have been Lost Odyssey and Tales of Vesperia, but you already have those.

My advice would be to check out some of the better XBL Indie RPG's such as Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves The World.

Valkyria Chronicles is one of the most epic games I've ever played...PERIOD.  I didn't think it was quite as hard as it seems many people here think it is.  Just make sure you have at least an hour or two of time for each battle and save after every move when the action starts to get hectic.  After I beat the game, I think I had about 100+ saves :D.  Oh, and definately buy all the DLC.  The sidequests really add a lot to character backgrounds.

Console RPGs in general have been pretty lacking this gen. As far as ones worth playing that are specifically Japanese, Valkyria Chronicles is probably "the best" one. Nier is quite good. And dare I say FFXIII is pretty good too. I've heard Last Remnant is actually pretty darned awesome, provided you get it on Steam and NOT the 360. Resonance of Fate is also apparently quite good, if you are masochistic enough to handle the learning curve. My copy is still shrink-wrapped because other stuff keeps popping in from of it (e.g. Deus Ex: HR).

I really tried to get into resonance of fate twice, but I got so frustrated trying to figure out the battle tutorials that I just gave up.  Is it really worth pressing onward?

Long story short, you are indeed screwed.
If you want jRPGs on par with the old games, get a handheld.

I can't say for sure. Just that I've heard from those that had that they enjoyed it. If you are so frustrated by it then it probably isn't worth figuring out.

I'd recommend Enchanted Arms. Most people didn't like it but I think it's a very solid, world-spanning JRPG with a very interesting, strategic battle system.

Nier is quite good, you can try Infinity Undiscovery, its not that good tough, but you can find it for a good price this days, and of course Valkyria Chronicles

Epic....., hummm....,Blue Dragon almost got there for me, its quite a good crafted game, a little too much on the easy side.

The Last Reanmant is awesome, the soundtrack its very good, and the game fells like a SAgA game, you can install the game, it have some problems with texture pop in, but its quite a personal issue really, some people might not care..., i finished it on the X360 quite a good game too, very hard :)

Sorry, but I can't recommend playing The Last Remnant on 360 when the PC version is such a giant improvement =/

Yeah, get Nier and VC.
The Last Remnant is actually pretty damn epic but I played it on PC, from what I hear the 360 version isn't that hot.

If your PC isn't remotely modern... Man, unless you never intend to get a good PC it's probably still better to wait, being on Steam means you don't have to rush out and get it or anything.

I liked it as well. At least it tried something different, battle system wise.

Saw this for a decent price a while ago, kind of regret I didn't pick it up right there and then.

I got the platinum trophy in Resonance of Fate and I enjoyed every moment of it. The combat is hard to get into at first but it gets much easier as you go along.
I take RoF and Valkyria Chronicles as my favorites RPGs on PS360 this gen.

Fucked

But Nier is amazing... it has an epic "feel", even if it's not that long (think Shadow of the Colossus, and you're getting closer). Lost Odyssey is a good old fashioned Final Fantasy epic, pretty good. But the best traditional jRPGs are on handhelds.

There's a lot better WRPGs this generation. I highly recommend the Fallout games. You'll want to read the description between 3 and NV, and see what locale and feel fits you better. Fallout 3 is less goofy, more classy, and has this great 1950s east coast meets apocalypse vibe. New Vegas is more goofy, wild west, with seedy casinos, cowboys, and no clear protagonists. I greatly preferred Fallout 3, but that's just my style.

Deus Ex is probably my pick for WRPG of the generation: it's like one third RPG, one third FPS, and one third Metal Gear Solid. It has a fairly japanese feel at times, even if it's Canadian.
