    Top Ten JRPGs (NOT From Square Enix)



    If you normally play JRPGs from Square Enix, this is an interesting top 10 to look at. Also, my favorite game (Skies of Arcadia Legends) made #2 on the list.

    Knew Grandia would be on that list before even clicking! xD

    Personally prefer the first Grandia, but the 2nd wasn't exactly lacking. IMO, JRPGs are always nice as each game usually has its own distinct artstyle.

    Grandia was also my favourite of the bunch too, I still rate it as THE best combat system in a jRPG. Grandia 3 has refined it to almost perfection.

    Newcomer to JRPGs so I haven't played any of those. But damn....that was a nice video. Very well done.

    Yeah, there are a lot of JRPGs worth playing. Grandia II (also my entry point to the series) or the original are worth it alone for the combat.

    Skies of arcadia and grandia II, both originally on dreamcast, are probably the best turn based rpg's i have got to play. Good to see them making the list. SoA's character turn based combat was decent but the best part was the ship battles. Those were the most satisfying battles to be had. Overworks had a winner with SoA.

    Star Ocean the second story should have been on there. It was made before square and enix merged thus square had nothing to do with it. Other than that good list.

    Well, in the video, ProJared said he would omit action RPGs from his list (as well as handheld RPGs) since they can generate their own top ten lists.

    SE RPGs have gone down the drain since PS2. most of my played RPGs aren't SE.

    You've played JRPGs, Sufi? I thought you were mostly into shooters.

    let's see, off the top of my head. FFIV(10hrs), FF7(60+hrs/finished), FF8(20hrs), FF9(10hrs), FFX (3hrs), FF12(40hrs), Grandia II (8hrs), Star Ocean (4hrs), .Hack (5hrs), XenoSaga 1/2 (finished), Kingdom Hearts (20hrs), Kingdom Hearts 2 (finished), Suikoden IV (5hrs), Shadow Hearts (5hrs), DQ8 (finished/36hrs), Musashi (5hrs), Growlanser (1hr), Dark Cloud (20hrs), Dark Cloud 2 (30hrs), Wild Arms 3 (1hr), Disgaea (20hrs).

    those are all estimates and they are not all the games i've given a try either. some i liked, some didn't, some just didn't hold my attention, others i just moved on to something else. most of those are on PS2.

    shooters are my fav online genre, but i also love single player and JRPGs are my fav single player genre, then it's action and the rest.

    P.S. i wouldn't $#@! so much at SE if i wasn't big into JRPGs.

    Yeah, sorry. That was a dumb question considering you posted in my Dragon Quest thread too. :P

    it's cool. it's just that i haven't played many RPGs (especially JRPGs) in the recent past...say past 6-7 years almost.
