Forums - Gaming Discussion - What JRPG has the best story?

Of all the JRPGs I´ve ever played, Xenogears has the best story.It´s very convoluted, and I had to look for explanation on the net, in order to try and understand it.

It´s quite complex and deep, plus it´s one of the best games I played on the PS1, a reminder of how good Square was in the 90s.

LOST ODYSSEY, a pure masterpiece from beginning to end.

Chrono Cross. *waits*

Estelle and Adol... best characters ever! XD

I actually really enjoyed the story on Chrono Cross lol, thought it was a great game :P

Best story in a JRPG goes to Final Fantasy X though ;)

Xenogears, without a doubt. If you search through the web you will see some people saying how xenogears changed their lives. That game opened my mind.

I enjoyed Star Ocean:Till the end of time a hell of a lot and its story, while a bit slow, kept me engaged the whole time. The twist near half of the game is also pretty mind bugging, for me anyways.
