so, there was a thread like this, let me join
i'd like to play resonance of fate (the freakin' acrobatic RPG)
FFVIII was good too, but i prefer FFIX
I've been meaning to try out FFIX but could never force myself to sit down and play it (or keep it).
While I am curious about the Suikoden games, I'm also curious about Valkyrie Profile 2 and Persona 4 (despite my initial thoughts/setbacks about the game lol). Any input about those games? Trying to get as much feedback as possible before I do a blind buy.
Valkyrie Profile 2 has mixed feelings, according to my experience. Most of my friends loved it and so did I, but some disliked it.
IMO the game is the best looking game PS2 has, and that alone should be the reason enough to give it a shot. It has a lot of characters, and I mean a lot, probably more than you'll ever use, but it's done pretty well since most of those characters are spirits which you can level up then "release" and get a cool useful item instead, while your regular characters are about as numerous as they are in other RPGs.
Plot is ok, in the beginning it's not explained very well, but as you go deeper into the game and towards the end it gets a lot better and things start falling in place.
The combat is bloody awesome, it's so savage and beautiful at the same time. Lots of different enemies, lots of bosses, crapload of items... The number of abilities, attacks, special abilities, special attacks... It's greater than most of the RPGs I've ever played.
The bad things I've heard people complain about (my friends), were mainly concerning the plot (initial plot) which is just blurry rather than bad, as well as difficulty at times (which can be overcome by a little grind and then returning). Potential issues could be reaching secret chests since some of them require some tricky jumping and some brain usage.
I never played Persona, but I definitely plan to, since people have said a lot about the series, comparing it to FF's quality all the time.
Either way, if I were you I'd go for both of these. :P
if you have a PSP try
Valkyria chronicles 2
it a solid RPG n nice art style..
only few hours into it but i defo worth a rent if people not wana take a risk with it...plus the main character is funny n likeable
Yay, an RPG thread! \o/
I'm going to have to check Dragon Quest out! I've seen it for sale a few times but never got around to picking it up. :3
Probably my favourite RPG has to be Oblivion... I'd also reccomend Blue Dragon or Baldur's Gate! Both are excellent games.

I played Risen a while ago and it was really really boring. It felt like playing a tutorial/preview level for 20 hours, and then the game was over. Damn I really don't get why people ever liked Risen/Gothic. Last good RPG I remember was Dragon Ages, which was a little too easy imo but very very enjoyable, I really loved the game
The addon was even much easier then, also kinda short and didn't feel as cool as the original, but it was quite ok.
Right now I'm on pins and needles for Diablo 3! After reading Berserk I want to create a Barbarian and slice through masses of weird creatures!
I couldn't really get myself to play Diablo 2 again, so I'm playing a little Titan Quest. It's not very special and a little boring though
I have great memories of Diablo 1, but I couldn't play it again. It's sooo annoying because the character moves with small steps and is really really slow but it had a great atmosphere ^^
