So, the golden age of JRPGs was probably the 16-bit era. Chrono Trigger, three GOAT Final Fantasy games, Lunar, Phantasy Star IV, Dragon Quest V etc etc. 32-bit era is also a contender for the golden age of JRPGs what with the polarizing FF VII, FF Tactics, Xenogears, Suikoden games, etc.

That isn't what I want to discuss today, though, /v/. I want to ask what the best JRPGs from the following generations are. This last console generation and the one before it.

Honestly, these consoles are capable of delivering the best JRPGs of all time, the hardware is there, but the execution left something to be desired. Take for example Final Fantasy XII. Game looks great. Shitty combat system and a weak story make it an overall forgettable FF game. JRPGs are a fucking joke now when people cite a game like Ni No Kuni as one of the best. Charming, looks great, but the gameplay isn't that great. I mean it's not a bad game, it's just good, not great.

Really the only great JRPG of recent memory I can think of is Xenoblade. There's also Dragon Quest VIII, but other than that I feel every other JRPG is at best a good game, but not a great game.

So /v/ give me your great, fucking amazing JRPGs of recent memory and a spiel about what you liked about it. Don't give me no weak, "I enjoyed this, this was a good JRPG" shit like a fucking Tales game or some shit. Great games, handheld or console, whatevs, go!

Well OP I haven't played many of them but I think you'd enjoy
Summon Night 4
Summon Night 3
Metal Max 2 Reloaded (if you want modern) and 3, particularly if you liked Chrono Trigger
Zero and Ao no kiseki duology are pretty great

I also think Shadow Hearts is great too

I could also say Romancing Saga Minstrel Song, but I really don't prefer it over Romancing SaGa 2, but maybe you would like it a lot.

Lol, go choke on a dick faggot weeabo

The Last Story was a pretty good sort of Stealth/JRPGs hybrid. Motherfucking Sakaguchi was behind it, so if you're a Final Fantasy fanboy, which all signs point to yes, you would probably like it.
>>
I'd say Nier, but that game is very love-it-or-hate-it on top of being very different from a traditional JRPG

FF fans are really insufferable pieces of shit. They're the bottom of the barrel of JRPG fans, just not as bad as Tales fans.

>>322293324
Came here to post this. It really made me fall in love with RPGs all over again.
>>
>>322291946
>Summon Night 4
>Summon Night 3
I was under the impression that SN4 was the worst in the series, is that not the case? And is SN5 any good?
>>
>>322293324
Very underrated, I wish they'd port it to PC so I could play it again. Definitely one of the best "get all the lore through reading blocks of text" games I've ever experienced.

I know you're a pleb with no taste, but I'm trying to save you from that fate.

Summon Night 3 and 4 are ranked incredibly high among JRPGs.
Metal Max 2 is on par with Chrono Trigger as one of the best games of the SNES, in my opinion it's even better than Trigger
even more if you're an FF fan

These recs aren't something you get every day.

>>322294696
No. 5 is considered to be the worst, but it's really because it's too different from the prequels.

I'd say you can still enjoy it, but if you play the previous ones first you'd enjoy it.
>>
I really wanted Bravely Default to be the JRPG that revitalized the genre but I was incredibly disappointed. Did anything FF-esque come out in 2015 at all?

This was good.
>>
>>322295465
Sadly, not really. Xenoblade Chronicles X came out, more scifi than anything and I haven't played it so I can't give an honest recommendation.
>>
psx had way better, and more, rpgs than any 16bit shit did

>>322296045
I don't think it was made in the west anon.

So it's a jRPG
>>
>>322296045
Made by Level-5, my friend

Is Metal Max Returns any good my man?

What would you say is the best version of Metal Max 2? I had a quick look but couldn't find an English SNES ROM patch for it.

Thanks for these recs; hadn't heard of them at all.
>>
>>322295131
Are there English patches for any of these?
>>
>>322296702
Metal Max Returns is very good, if you like it MM2 might be one of your favorite games of all time

I heard they did an MM2 translation years ago though, not quite sure.

You might also want to check out the translation patches of Shining Force 3 Scenarios, they're all great games as well.

I thought you wanted mostly modern stuff, but whatever you don't know should be profit for you
>>
>>322297254

Cheers man.

Nah, I'm not the OP.

If you watch 4 seconds of gameplay you can immediately tell it's a JRPG. Some people, man.
