Good RPG games to start playing?? Nov. 19th, 2012 @ 09:53 PM Reply

I'm looking for a new one to play since tomorrow I'll be super bored of a certain one I won't say ( - . - ). So are there any ones that are fun that I also wont feel outmatched by like the entire player base?? I don't really care what genre it is I like all kinds!

Thanks!

Golden Sun, Paper Mario, Chrono Trigger, and Fallout 3 are good ones to try.

The same people also made a game called Muramasa: the Demon Blade. It's an awesome game with really good atmosphere.

Do you have a specific console in mind? If I just scan through the RPGs I've played on Xbox 360, there's a few and I thought most of them were pretty good:

Blue Dragon
Dragon Age: Origins (Ultimate Edition)
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Anniversary Edition)
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Eternal Sonata
Fallout 3 (GOTY Edition)
Fallout: New Vegas (GOTY Edition)
Lost Odyssey
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2 (not played 3 so can't comment)
Two Worlds (not many people liked this, I did)
Two Worlds II (totally different from the first. maybe worth checking out)

I've also got Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Infinite Undiscovery sitting here but I've not played them yet. I think they both look like good games for their current selling price.

I wish it was on sale somewhere in the UK at that price. I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Unfortunately, it seems to be one of those pretty uncommon JRPGs on the Xbox 360 over here and used copies still sell for around about the price that a new copy would have cost on release.

Of the Final Fantasy series:

Final Fantasy I (GBA)
Final Fantasy V (GBA)
Final Fantasy VI (GBA)
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII (it's love it or hate it though)
Final Fantasy IX

VI and IX are especially awesome in my opinion. Final Fantasy IV might be good too, but don't get the DS version. Final Fantasy II is not really worth playing in my opinion. Don't know about III or anything past IX.

Final Fantasy Tactics is good too, but might not be the type of game that you're looking for. Avoid Crystal Chronicles for the Gamecube, it's mediocre at best.

-----

Earthbound

If you're looking for something different than the tons of JRPGs.

The Elder Scrolls series

If you're looking for games with hundreds of hours of content which you can play non-stop for months without even having finished everything. I suppose the first two are quite outdated by now though. Morrowind is still play-able, but Oblivion or Skyrim might be the best one to start with.

-----

I can go on and on, but if might help if you told us what system/console you want to play an RPG on...

Dark messiah. An unheard of, mind wrapping and realistic RPG game.

I second the Fallout and Elder Scrolls games.

But, really, Arc the Lad is pretty underrated as far as turn based games go.

If you love classics, you can't beat Final Fantasy. The first game is pretty fun, but if you're just looking to kill time you should pick-up FFVII and/or FFVIII.

Paper Mario is a pretty fun RPG series too. I've played and beaten all the games in the series (Including the newest one, Sticker Star) and I suggest you play the games in order of their release if you've never played one.

And since we're on the subject, Super Mario RPG is awesome. Play it if you get the chance.
