i have never (for some odd reason) have never really gotten into jrpg's but i dont think that ive ever given them a fair chance so what is a good one for me to try to try and get into it? i already own the final fantasy X-X2 remake so would that be a good start?
I'd recommend the earthbound games. They're not the best jpgs but they're free of anime weeb shit and don't have a boring who-gives-a-shit medieval thing going on. A good place to start.
You want a babby's first JRPG?
Mystic quest is great, fuck you.
The only 'easy' thing about it is the fact you can retry if you fail a battle and that you can overflow the final boss' health. Also the fight before the final boss is harder anyway.
Nier, or Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
RPGs should be about a good story, and strong role-playing elements (choice/consequence/freedom in game world). NOT about autistic out-dated battle systems, which require you to repeat the same fights with the same enemies 100 times, or random battles which is nothing but game padding.
Why haven't you softmodded your Wii already?
You can also emulate.
And if you have a modded PS2, definitely play Radiata Stories. >>285477818
Played it on PC using a keyboard.
Iso is dual audio.
Ni No Kuni has so much shit going on, I don't have the time to sit down & play it.
Bravely Default is pissing me off at the moment, if only because I've played so few JRPGs that some of the mechanics are a bit confusing at first. But I like it otherwise.
FF10 has the best turn based battle system though.
It really depends on what kind of experience OP wants from his first RPG. Does he want a grindfest? A cinematic experience with great plot and visuals? or a cinematic experience with great "plot and visuals"?
The music and imagery are indeed top-notch in Ni no Kuni.
The story is basic (aimed at children really), and the gameplay a bit repetitive. Worth playing, but only if you're a Ghibli fan imo. Doesn't have the depth of the early Ghibli stories such as nausicaa or Princess Mononoke unfortunately, more akin to Ponyo.
Legend of Dragoon.
The game was so massive at its time that it required 4 cds to fit the entire game.
It's a shame it was released under the shadow of Final Fantasy, as I think it was a much better game. The graphics may be off-putting and there is no HD remaster, but once you get into it you won't be backing away from the monitor any time soon.

Wtf am I reading? Do you enjoy running through an area, only to be stopped every ten paces to repeat the same unavoidable battles over, and over, and over? I really can't see how this is fun.
Sure, you can see the order of your attacks and switch party members. But the tactics hardly vary for most fights, there's so much padding it's unreal.
somebody else here said NieR. That game does have a very good story with awesome characters. The music is gorgeous too. Unfortunately the gameplay is terrible.
If you want a little more J in your rpg though I would recommend Tales of the Abyss. Very long game, great characters, very above average story for a tales game, good OST, bitchin opening song. One of my favs.
I might be one of the few who did not like dragoon much. Combat was great but the story was very boring and the voice acting flat out ruined some of the cutscenes.
That final boss fight was something else though. Actually deserving of the word epic.
Traditional turn based:
>Final Fantasy (I would suggest V, VI, VII, IX and X)
>Trails in the Sky FC (SC coming soon)
>Brave Fencer Musashi
>Ys series (Start with Oath in Felghana>Ark of naphistim>Origin>Seven>Optional Celceta then look into Ys I and II)
>Tales of Series (recommended are Symphonia, Abyss, Vesperia, Eternia and Hearts R if you have a Vita)
>Do you enjoy running through an area, only to be stopped every ten paces to repeat the same unavoidable battles over, and over, and over? I really can't see how this is fun.
have you played any JRPG? what the fuck kind of complaint is that
Traditional turn based
>Valkyrie Profile 1. 2 is kind of hit or miss
>Persona 3 and 4
>SMT series. I would suggest DDS1 and 2, Nocturne and IV
>Breath of Fire 4. 3 is alright but dated as fuck
I still think BoFV was an amazing game.
But to each their own. I recommend it.
I can see why. It was just too much of a departure for the series.
But inside was a heartfelt story and some truly original things never seen before in a jrpg.
It's a shame that we won't see the series come back the way it deserves to.
Every single line in the main story is voiced at the very least.
