My top 5 JRPG's

1. Xenoblade Chronicles

2. Persona 3/4

3.Rouge Galaxy.

4. Radiata Stories

5. Baten Kaitos.

There are hundreds more that I love, these are just some of my favorites at the moment. However if you ask me tomorrow, it most likely will be different besides Xenoblade.

Honorable mentions. Kingdom Hearts, Tales of Symphonia, The Last Story.

Probably Shin Megami Tensei (hard to pick a favorite one, I guess the entire series? I have a thing for religious mythology and demons so it resonated with me pretty well)

The Persona series is another really good one; I really liked it in terms of the social links that helped develop the cast of characters really well.

However, I think he only series to come close to SMT in terms of my personal favoritism is Fire emblem which I regard as a masterpiece of a series; I really love what they did in awakening with the marriage and children system which added alot of replayability for me.

Probably Persona 4, followed by the 'Tales' series.

Shout out to Trails in the Sky though.

Currently it's:

1. Xenogears (PS1)
2. Final Fantasy Tactics (PS1)
3. Super Robot Wars OG series (various)
4. SMT series (various Systems)
5. Final Fantasy X (PS2 / PS3 + PS4 remasters)

Honorable mention : The World Ends with You (DS).

Also, although Japanese and RPGs, I didn't include Dragon's Dogma (PS3 and soon to be PC) and the YS series (various) since they aren't traditional JRPGs.


That being said, there are plenty of game sitting in my backlog that have the potential to get on that list like Valkyria Chronicles (PS3 + PC, PSP for the 2nd and 3rd game), Radiant Historia (DS) (I love time travel), and Trails in the Sky.

Its hard to pick 5

1. Xenoblade episode 1 (ps2)
2. Xenogears (ps1)
3. FF7 (ps1)
4. Persona 4 (PS2)
5. Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)
6. FF10 (PS2)
7. Phantasy Star 2 (genesis)
8. FE: Awakening (3DS)
9. FF Tactics (PS1)
10. Chrono Cross (PS1)

Xenoblade Chronicles will probably be top 10 when I'm done.

Honorable mentions: Parasite Eve, Trails in the Sky, World Ends with You, FF6, FF9, FF13, Star Ocean 3, FF4, FFX-2, FF13-2, Front Mission 3-4, Ring of Red, Shadow Hearts 1-2, Shining Force, Dark Cloud 2.

Need to play: Radiata Stories, Persona 3, Trails SC, Trails of Cold Steel, FF: Crisis core, .hack//GU (a HD remake will sell better than those SAO games. Are you listening Bandai/Namco?).

Seiken Densetsu III - MY NUMBER 1. I don't know if it's your standard JRPG, more like Secret of Mana - but it's so, so good, and it's co-op multiplayer (for free, I should add, and over the internet, thanks to wonderful emulators)

Final Fantasy - (up until maybe 10, then I become less impressed.)

Skies of Arcadia - does this count as a JRPG? Because that might be my number 2.
