Baldurs Gate II. I don't really get jrpg's, I think the party based ad&d RPG's are much more complex, in depth and exciting, not to mention challenging. The story is usually better as well. As far as JRPG's go, I think Grandia 2 is by far the best.

omgwtfbbq, if Interplay/ Black Isle made a B.G. III but used the same game engine (the Infinity Engine used for Icewindale 1&2, Fall Out, BG I... ect) so that it looked almost the same, would you play it.

Also if you want a good and complicated Rpg from Japan w/ a great story, play the Game Cube Fire Emblem, I bought it for $14 dollars at Gamestop it was well worth it. I was hesitant to buy it but now I know how foolish I was.


 I would buy it in a second. I'd love a baldurs gate 3 upgraded to AD&Dv3 rules

Also, does Fire Emblem have as good a battle system as Grandia II? If so I will definitely buy it ;) It was such a good battle system and I'm constantly disappointed no one is improving on it



Help! I'm stuck in a forum signature!

Chrono Trigger. I've been dying for a remake since I've first played it (and the one for the PS1 doesn't count, although I did play and beat that one too). It's a shame Square shut down that fan project a while ago though. It was looking very promising. Perhaps it was a sign that Square is interested in revisiting the world? All I know is that I don't want another Chrono Cross (stopped half way through, it was too lame). I can't wait for it to come to the Virtual Console!



Its hard for me to narrow down a single favorite RPG. Most you all have listed some of my favs. So I will try and list the ones that were missed. Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Baten Kaitos Origins Suikoden V You guys pretty much hit on everything else.

 Thats why I choose radiata, I kinda guessed my other faves would be covered.

 

To add to this let me recommend steambot chronicles made by atlus. A very different type of rpg that I feel in love with. I would be very happy if a sequel was announced.

What gets me about this game and radiata stories is that they made me realize that i could love most genre's if done right. I am not a big fan of western style sandbox games/rpg's. Normally I find their stories to be very generic (they have to be , normally because of the freedom you are given) and somewhat weak. These games put an eastern flair on that concept (somewhat of a mix between sandbox and linear elements) that if I were to try to explain it to you it would seem like a mess but when you play these gamesthey just seem to work out perfectly.

Omgwtfbbq, Fire Emblem is a STRATEGY RPG, it works differently than a typical jrpg, which Grandia II is.



Nobody is crazy enough to accuse me of being sane.

Tales of Symphonia loved the combo heavy battle system Golden Sun Fire Emblem all Final Fantasy TA



OK, has anyone ever played, or even heard of Vagrant Story?

I know it was a sleeper hit, but I can't be the only one on this forum that has played that game (and thought it was the best RPG since sliced bread)! 



I played it but situations forced me to put it down before I could become adjusted. I'll probably try it again one of these days.

Kingdom Hearts 2 By FAR

KOTOR, because it actually deserves the name "Star Wars". It is gamings response to episode 4,5,6.

Also greatest story I've ever played through, great atmosphere and music, great characters. Only minus is Taris which was pretty slow at the beginning.
