Favorite JRPG Series?

Final Fantasy 687 27.20%
Dragon Quest 147 5.82%
Tales of 82 3.25%
Megami Tensei (not incl. Persona) 84 3.33%
Persona 305 12.07%

Because the results in the previous Poll of the Week, I figured I would make this week's something related. Since, Square-Enix seems to be leading in the polls, how about a question about everyone's JRPG preferences!

So.. what's everyone's favorite JRPG series?

Around the Network

I'll have to think about which one it is. I read through the poll options and concluded "definitely none of those", so I voted "Other".

EDIT: Xenoblade Chronicles, because Paper Mario has been dormant since 14 years.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Dark Souls.

Edit: Oh shit, that's actually in the list. Uhh well not Dark Souls then. I guess I picked other so I'll just say Etrian Odyssey.

Out of those options, definitely Pokemon.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

My favorite RPG series is the "spiky haired kid" series on the Super Nintendo. Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, and Illusion of Gaia. I'm sure there are others and I know they're not connected, but they count in my book.

Megami tensei


FF is the only one I remotely follow if Zelda isn't classifed as one but this gen has seen me playing some more sub genre's if Jrpg and I gotta say I really liked Persona 5 and here's hoping Nioh becomes a series as it is one of the greatest games ever with a combat system so perfect it makes most other games combat look like trash.
However all in all for the OP, I'd say Souls-borne just kills it in ever way but narrative.

Final Fantasy without question. Dark Souls is a close second.

Because the Xeno series isn't in the poll, I'll have to go with Dragon Quest. Consistently good, beautiful worlds, always a challenge, the JRPG equivalent to comfort food. Ask me about 12 years ago and I'd say pokemon, but pokemon has grown way too stale for my taste in the story department.
