This is the only JRPG on the N64. Isn't that SAD? They had the SNES that has JRPGs considered the best in the world still out of 40 years of video games, and the N64 only had a single fucking one.

Isn't that sad? What about 3D makes it bad for a japanese role playing game?
>>
What about Ogre Battle?
>>
>>322849627
The PS1 took all of Nintendo's third parties. Most critical one was Square. Thus the N64 was a machine that had mostly first party games, with the odd third party title here and there.

more of a strategy rpg

Space limitations brought you by cartridges.

JRPG's took a lot of space you know, even in the PSX, they had to use 2 or more discs to fit in a whole game.
>>
>>322849627
All the JRPG developers fled to PlayStation because compact disc technology

That's literally it

Super Mario RPG was bad and it was 3D.

They had paper fucking mario as a template and couldn't even copy the qualify of life improvements that were already there. It's like they didn't even play the game. "oh yeah man yoshi should jump a centimeter off the ground AND stop you from entering any tunnels and doors and talking to other people while you're on him" fuck you

It would be sad if it wasn't the best rpg of that generation.
>>
What about Quest 64
>>
>>322849627
Yamaguchi openly discouraged JRPG's because he thought they were for lonely basement dwellers.

Weird thing is I think Suikoden 2 and the BoF games had like one FMV so it's hardly a stretch for them to be 64 games.

Is Megaman Legends an RPG?

>>322849627
at least PM64 is super fucking good and a classic
>>
>>322852608
Amen. My brother in particular is obsessed with Paper Mario, beaten it 6 times and counting. I've only beaten it once but damn did I have a lot of fun
>>
Funny thing, it was one of THE best games in the genre.
>>
>>322854995
I wholeheartedly agree.
It's weird how small of a library the N64 had yet I enjoyed every game I played on it.

You could say Yamauchi did what he did to assure quality control, and it showed tenfold.

Beaten it nearly 3 or 4 times, definitely one of the best N64 titles.

okay how about a GOOD rpg besides Paper Mario on the N64 as an exclusive?

Aidyn chronicles, though it wasn't a jrpg

It's bad, senpai.

The only redeeming feature was the magic system, and it was horribly unbalanced.

The Saturn had the best JRPGs

Holy shit, how have I never realized that all of the Paper Mario 1 partners are based off Mario's enemies till now? What the fuck?

>>322859805
I liked it. People kept saying things were wrong with it that I didn't have a problem with. People said it was harder and required more grinding than it actually did. People said dodging was hard.

Literally all of those people need to git gud. It had many many flaws, but it was by no means a bad game. It was at least a 6/10 when I played it.

Well, except for Watt, unless she's from one of the few Mario games I haven't play-oh wait Mario 2 or World maybe.

It does have a lot of RPG elements/inspiration to it in the customization, character interaction, and the world on the whole, but I'd say it's still more of an action/adventure than anything.

>>322860553
Somebody get this hothead out of here.

The problem was the FMV meme in the 90s.

Geno made a cameo appearance in M&L Superstar Saga and is a mii costume in Smash 4
>>
>>322850037
Culex is an optional boss, Bowser is awesome in any game that has him be your ally especially the RPGs, and Mallow and Geno are owned by Square not Nintendo so Square lets them rot.
>>
>>322859879
The only good one is SF3
>>
We almost had Earthbound 64. It got really far into development until they switched to the gba
>>
PM, Ogre Battle, Quest 64, Hybrid Heaven are the only JRPGs I can think of on the N64. There was also like one more, but I remember it not being good at all, so I forgot its name.
>>
>No mentions of Wonder Project J2

I'm disappointed in you /v/
>>
>>322865948
To be fair, that was Japan only originally. Also, wasn't that more of a raising simulator or something?
>>
>>322850037
The only complaints I have with it are how useless Mallow is, how similar Bowser and Geno were in terms of stats, and the platforming bits in the overworld. No 3D Isometric game with a D-pad should EVER have precision platforming.
>>
Would Hybrid Heaven qualify?

Isometric platforming is a vidya sin

You're forgetting the massive kickbacks Sony was handing out.
Developers weren't running to the Saturn, Sega CD, and Neo Geo CD in droves just because they used discs.
>>
>>322866725
If you liked hybrid heaven you would appreciate this drink, it is apparently lemon-lime flavored and I can't find any info on it online.

Don't forget that it was at the very end of the console's lineup since they had to squeeze the hell out of the cartridge space, and also without cutscenes, voice acting, and other jazz used in PS1 RPGs

Paper Mario is fucking great though and better than 95% of the PS1's RPGs.
