Given how the SoTN spawn managed to bore me somewhat while the original game kicked all amounts of ass, I think Gast is right. If they were 30 dramatically different RPGs per year, then it'd probably be a different story - but then, I'd be just as well off trying out the great games in other genres, heh.

Edit: Oh, and I wouldn't necessarily complain that they'd be bad; even if they wre all the same, it wouldn't be like they'd be pulling any serious problems outside of 'no innovation'. It'd just be... Well, boring. :P

I don't mean all RPGs playing exactly like FFVI. I mean ALL RPGs being as good as FFVI, to the point each RPG you would play would feel like a masterpiece. You know, if every RPG out there gave you the same ammount of satisfaction your favourite RPG did, how could you ever grow tired or bored of it? :)

If that was possible, perhaps. But I think games like that have more impact on their own and not in succession - I could instead grow tired of the general RPG action, or ultimately one or two just does /something/ that stands out more than the others, and gets remembered better over those. Perhaps it's something as significant as better characters, or as minor as a few really good songs. It might be worth trying witha  replay marathon, but meh. :P

If you don't mind at importing and can reads most Japanese Character.
I have to recommend Tales of the Abyss, this Game's rocks.
Or you can wait until Q4 this year for the NA Version.

I went to EB this morning and picked up Suikoden V and both the Xenosaga's. I looked for any of the SMT games but I didn't find any.

And I'm waiting for Tales of the Abyss to make it here before I buy.

The SMT games will probably be a bit hard to find in brick and mortar stores, as they're out of print by now (well, Nocturne and DDS is anyway. I think DDS 2 is still in circulation). Your best bet for finding them is eBay and the like, I'm afraid.

That was why I scoured the used game section.

The point is still valid, though. Atlus' games tend to be picked up by gamers who know their value, and therefor would not trade them in at the big stores. So your best bet is, still, eBay or the like. You might get lucky and find a used copy in a brick and mortar store, but it'll probably be pretty hard to find.

Yeah, I pretty much knew I wasn't going to find it, but it could never hurt to look.
