I posted that list on FB and not a single one of my RPG friends commented on it, but I thought the list was very good too. Here were my comments:
Totally agree with Grandia III, that game has possibly the best battle system I've played in a JRPG. Unfortunately, the story and characters weren't the greatest. Wouldn't mind another game from that series though! I totally forgot about it.
I haven't played SMT IV, but I might at some point. Only SMT games I've ever played are Persona 3 & 4 (and those are really SMT right?).
Haven't played Tales of Graces either, but I love the Tales battle system. This game is on my list to play at some point. What did it do that Xillia did not since Xillia is newer (i beat that one)? Loved that battle system.
I have played the Shadow Hearts newest entry and I thought it was a nifty little system, but not that awe inspiring. I never did finish the game, but I played a good chunk of it. Only one in the series I have played.
Totally have no problem with Star Ocean being number 1. Always has the best combat and absolutely stupid plots (at least the 3D ones).
