I love playing Turned base RPG with good storyline.. Also Like Grandia part 2 battle system..

My First rpg is Dragon Warrior part 1 on NES, second one is Final Fantasy... I fall in love with Final Fantasy II on SNES.. That I played Final Fantasy II so many time I lost count.

Nowdays there any hardly decent RPG with turned base system :(. But just started playing PC turned base rpg :).


Does Anyone know a good Turned base rpg with good storyline for PC? I pretty much got all playstation RPG, and Playstation 2 as well.. Pretty much all console system.

Am just started on PC :].


They ported over a lot of the Final Fantasy games into Steam if you don't have those already.

Valkyria Chronicles is sort of turned based and on steam. Its the best RPG of the PS3 era IMO. Another great more traditional turned based RPG that is on Steam is Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.

The 1st RPG I played was Ultima for the NES. It wasn't that good but all we had at the time. The first one I really fell in love with was Phantasy Star 2.

Ultima: Exodus and Phantasy Star II set the difficulty bar for our generation, that's for sure. Especially PS2 and its total-party-kill random encounters (... in dungeons where the graphical overlays make it really hard to see where you're going).

For me it was Final Fantasy on the NES. The start of of the world's most ironic name in gaming :D.

Pokemon was fun over the years too and the Golden Sun series was quite nice as well. Never had a Sony console before the PS4 so I never got to try a lot of the classic rpg titles that they offered. Nice to see steam starting to port some old games onto PC though .

In terms of more recent games, I am looking forward to Persona 5 and Disgaea 5 later this year and Persona Q was pretty fun. Still waiting for the next Golden Sun game though , although I really should get around to playing through FFX and SMT DS2 Record Breaker.

Dragon Warrior was the first I played and I found it really cool, but it wasn't until Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior 2 that I really got hooked on the genre. They had more evolved mechanics and a story/world I actually cared more about compared to DW1.

I always thought the random battles were well balanced in PS2. It was just the dungeons would have been impossible without the maps that came with the hint book in the game. I still love the graphics (Dark Force and Mother Brain looked amazing) in that game and didn't think that PS3 or 4 looked 1/2 as good.

I started a bit late on the RPG series, but hey I was young. My first RPG was Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars. After that I was hooked on RPG. Geno was the best

FF4, FF6, and Chrono Trigger on SNES plus Shining Force 2 and Phantasy Star 2 on Genesis got me into jRPG's while Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, Dark Sun: Shattered Lands, and Fallout 1 & 2 got me into wRPG's.


I agree with OP about Xenogears. Favourite jRPG definitely.

LoZ: OoT is an action-adventure game. The only Zelda games that pops up in my head that belongs in the RPG category is Zelda 2 which was an action RPG.

OoT was a RPG game, you are role playing as Link, and there are side quests.

Good to see all the old school love here! Lots of SNES and Genesis fans.

I was lucky to find a cartridge-only copy of PS2 back in the day. I never saw the game new on the shelf. ... Those suckers were really, really hard to find.

Those two reasons you gave does not make it a RPG. Most games could be called one if that's all that was needed to fall into the genre. It's an action-adventure game. Things that could be argued for it being an RPG would be that Link upgrades his health and magic while being able to gain new items (weapons, clothing, etc) but he doesn't gain levels (other than Zelda 2), guy is a static character, etc.

Zelda series falls under the action-adventure genre by critics and audiences. It involves the physical skills of action games but offers inventory system, dialogue, an storyline and so forth from adventure games and predominately has puzzles play a large feature in the genre. LoZ was the game that really established the genre.
