    Ok having never heard of Legends of Dragoon, I decided to play it and on disc 4 now I have to say I am loving it and can't believe I didn't hear if it at the time!

    Now that beings me to this thread, are there any other under-rated or obscure RPGs from the PS1 or PS2 era that don't get the recognition you think they deserve? Well this is your thread to talk about and recommend them to others!

    I would like to help but I just can't bring myself to read those of you with colored post fonts. I find them so $#@!ing ugly and the more tired I/my eyes are, the even less I'm inclined to read. Do our eyes a favor, go back to standard font.

    There was one that I never finished in the PS2 era which is called XenoSaga. I believe its a trilogy.

    Funnily enough, just bought Wild Arms few days back and Xenogears about a month ago. Think I'm going to play through RPGs for the rest of the year lol

    I finally tried Xenogears a few weeks ago, but I hated it. The characters talk WAYYYYYY too much and the writing isn't good enough to warrant it.

    Also, the camera is very annoying. Navigating areas is a chore.

    I'm not a big fan of the Xeno games either, wasn't a huge fan of Xenoblade for Wii either yet it got tons of praise as being the best RPG this gen which I completely disagree with.

    Oh man, now my eyes can cut through your posts like a hot knife through butter.

    re: OP - hows about Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain? Or is that not under-rated enough. That game had a $#@!ing AWESOME story and the voice acting was absolutely top notch. It's not a traditional RPG but had elements in it.

    well suikoden ( the first one) is good.
    Never really got into xenosaga.
    final fantasy origins is pretty fun (To me at least)

    i'll try to think of a few more..

    I personally just can't get into them but I did just restart Xenoblade the other day and am gonna try not to lose interest this time lol, but personally The Last Story is more my type of JRPG.

    Anyway yeah I'd recommend Grandia which has been mentioned. I'd recommend Dragon Quest III for NES more than anything though lol

    Since some of the major ones have been said, I'll throw Vagrant Story into the mix. Pretty complex and rewarding battle system, beautiful graphics for PS1 too. Its also in the same universe as Final Fantasy tactics and Final Fantasy XII IIRC
