I'm an RPG fanatic and I always love finding lesser known RPGs that are absolutely phenomenal. Here are some of my recommendations:
- Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
- Alundra
- Legend of the Dragoon
- Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines
- Wild Arms 3
- Skies of Arcadia
- Mother 3
- Parasite Eve

Does anyone know of other awesome RPGs that aren't quite as well known? It seems the PS1 especially was filled with a lot of these.

Chocobo Dungeon 2. Probably one of my all time favorites, but it has been such a long time since a played it. It was for the PS1

Radiant Historia and The World Ends With You. Both of them were released for the original Nintendo DS and they were awesome, especially The World Ends With You, it had a very unique battle system.

Shadow Madness on the PS1.

Awesome story and a great cast of characters.

Hey, someone mentioned Persona 2: Eternal Punishment! Inoocent Sins was just as great.

Xenosaga and Nocturne (warning: game is very very difficult) come to mind.

Threads of Fate on the PS1. Love love LOVED that game. Radiata Stories for the PS2 also. When you changed your armor in menu it changed it in game too and every NPC had their own schedule.

I might be wrong, but what about Rogue Galaxy?

Its already been mentioned, but The World Ends With You is not only a JRPG that gets little love, but is one of the top JRPGs in general. I'd go so far as to say it was one of the best original games released on the Nintendo DS, period.

I really wich I could get my hands on a coppy of TWEWY, 999 or Radiant Historia, have been searching quite some time for those.
I have to add Golden Sun to this list, unless it is to well known. However you rarely hear people talk about it. Also The Last Story for wii is really good aswell.

Sounds to me like its worth picking up. Like the whole indivual schedules and armor deal. Not enough games do that.
I better like it or I'm holding you responsible!

Lol. I stand by my decision! And it was the Radiata Stories that did that, though I recommend Threads of Fate as well.
Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did! ;D

i think the anti xbox movement and alot of players in general missed out on lost odyssey, it was done by Sakaguchi and for me it's better than any final fantasy game released after 9 by far but it never had the fame that it would have had if released under the final fantasy name.

I may get a copy of this one I've always wanted to try it but never seen it in stores, I've read nothing but good things about it, thanks for reminding me of this game!

Rogue Galaxy and Radiata Stories were already mentioned, but they are so damn good I'm going to mention them again.

Play them.

Now.
