Can somebody recommend me 3 RPG's?

43 Replies 713 Views Created 08-07-2009

I already have Oblivion, but was hoping for something a bit more futuristic. Kinda getting tired of all these Old Age settings as I feel they have been done to death.

 

So are there 3 RPG's you highly recommend? If they ain't futuristic no matter, it is still better than nothing.

Yeah, agree with Downbringer. The best Sony could do now would be to promote the old ps1 and ps2 titles that were very good - I.e., run Xenogears and then Xenosaga, Star Ocean with follow- ups, etc.

But at the moment, unless you have a chipped ps1 put away in a box (..and didn't accidentally send it off somewhere, after which some moron sold it along with the c64 stash for a song and a wink), then you have:
-ff7 on the psn. And maybe ff8 later versions, ff9 works fine.
-Suikoden 1 on the US psn. Suikoden 2 is.. better, and already translated well (also managed good sales in several EU region countries - which is probably the problem, I guess, since then whoever holds the rights will want actual money to put it up on the store..). So maybe worth getting the discs.
(Neither Xenogears or Suikoden 2 is possible to get for a PAL box. Chronotrigger - is it possible to buy this for money? Legend of Dragoon, same thing - not really possible to get on an original disc.)
-Oblivion (not saying much, but the Ps3 GotY Oblivion version is actually one of the best releases of the game)..

After that, there's rpg- like games:
Valkyria Chronicles (beautiful game, very original blend of action and story).
Demon's Souls (not peaking in technical perfection, but has gameplay to make up for it - if you've either enjoyed Zelda or SoTN, and Diablo - but the backstory prevented you from really enjoying the game - you're going to enjoy this game).
Eternal Sonata (crazy, but great idea, really. Lots of good meta- devices, such as that Polka talks in polka- rythm, and so on. The evil prince is my favourite character in any jrpg so far. And the english voice- acting is actually less horrible to listen to than the japanese track, which I've never seen before. So they really did work on this version. The actual history about Chopin is also good. But in the end the game is made for 12- year olds, the extra "real" info doesn't connect with the game very often, and the parallels are explained in slow, slow, excrutiating detail by the eight- year old annoying boy aspect of Chopin's psyche. Which... doesn't really help in any way, since they are simply removing the story- telling from the game the more you dive into the themes - which they so insist that you should immediately understand. Meaning that you either are too immature to understand the themes anyway, and just feel like an idiot. Or you understand the game, and think it's stupid. It's not a bad game, and the gameplay is pretty addictive, specially once you level up a bit. I've absolutely played more horrible games than this. But when the second infinite grinding level is pushed on you directly after the first - twice in a row - then you wonder whether they ever managed to get a playtester to play through the entire game - or if they just ignored their complaints as an artistic fulfillment of the suffering of humanity expressed in the game, or something. So not impossible to finish, eventually, but not a masterpiece either..).
Penny Arcade, On the Precipice of Darkness on the PSN (turn- based auto- level rpg with simple upgrade mechanics.. and stupidly designed two- handed fighting combos - lots of swearing, but good, if eminently shocking gameplay and story).


So yeah - any time will do, Level 5! Hint, hint!

Fallout 3 is exactly like oblivion, in the way it's setup. after all it is the same company. so don't worry, if you liked oblivion you will love fallout 3
No he won't :P Fallout is TERRIBLE in comparison to the imenseness of Oblivion. There are only 12 sidequests in fallout :| And they all last 5-10 minutes.
 
Get Oblivion GOTY, the shivering isle's is a good add on, quite a bit to do there! 

 




He's already got it and wants a futuristic version of oblivion (kinda) which is fallout 3. I'll admit it's not as good IMO but something to fill the void and the DLC packs are coming soon


Well thats a load of bullcrap. Look on fallout 3 wikia, there are at least 30 side quests but you dont get trophies for them...

 

Fallout 3 is the best RPG ive ever played, you have to get it if your an RPG fan....

If you like j-rpg's I would recommend Eternal Sonata. I brought it yesterday and it's quite good.

I hear it's a bit linear, and there's not much side questing to be done, but it's still worth it if you can find it for a decent price.

ummm this being the playstation forum and all I'm not sure I should be saying this.

however I brought star ocean: the last hope for x360, and its a decent game, you have to get past the annoying characters but unlike the characters in eternal sonata, they don't make me want to commit suicide, the battle system is fun(ish) and its not as linear as eternal sonata and a lot bigger. So if you've got an xbox go for it. But if you don't, go for valkyria chronicles over eternal sonata, but you're better off getting the penny arcade games from the playstation store. they're amazing, and saving the rest of your money for when ff13 comes out (whenever that might be)

You might get a couple of fanboys saying that '360 sux' and 'xbox games sux' etc

But most people are alright on this forum :D
