Final Fantasy VII. Seriously. It's not the best, but it's pretty good and is an easy to get into JRPG. After that try some of the older Final Fantasies, Final Fantasy IX, Dragon Quest, Tales, and then whatever you want.
>>
Personally, Chrono Trigger, it tackles a lot of RPG tropes and is very forgiving while being a exceptionally great game. Story isn't complicated, great cast of characters, music, settings, it's one of those RPGs that you'll really struggle with deciding who to keep on your team as they're all really useful and well balanced.
>>
Yeah, going 3D wasn't the best thing to ever happen to JRPGs.
>>
>>323229175

Oh yeah, Chrono Trigger. I forgot to mention that one even though I was thinking of it. It's great for beginners too.
>>
>>323228185

I love how you faggots have no set definition for any words you use. You just take a word like "Weeaboo" and apply it to whatever you fucking please.
>>
>>323229521
And yet, for anyone who isn't autistic, its abundantly clear what he means. Curious, that.

Thats actually why I can't get into JRPGs even though I want too because the concept of many games look fun and in depth
I want to take my protagonist seriously, not a 10 year old wielding a sword surrounded by 10 year old girls

There are a lot of JRPG's without the generic animu loli dogshit, it's like anime in the regard that you have to trudge through a lot of trash to find some gems.

Do most JRPGs use the same game engine and build? They all seem to follow the same formula with portrait cutscenes and board game overworld map.

Give Dark Cloud a try, it's $15 on PS4 and i'm not noticing any emulation issues yet, but it's probably not hard to emulate on PCSX2 either if you don't have a PS2 and the right cables lying around.

Poorly programmed, badly designed, soulless japanese trash with no effort and ambition put towards anything besides pandering towards the most tasteless otaku, ie. something like an atelier or neptunia game where the artstyle and writing is intentionally shit in such a way to pander to smallminded otaku.

Dokapon Kingdom. It's light on story so you can focus on actually playing the game and even though it's competitive you can easily co-op the main quest.

Omega Quintet looks as weeb as any, but is pretty damn fun and the combat is interesting. Yeah, lots of them are super pandering, but you really shouldn't judge them just because of looks.

Final Fantasy 7.

Play it
Love it

Then play the remake and be disappointed because Square Enix is trying to make it look photo-realistic like modern FF's.

>>323231637
I think it's just a more old school experience. Dokapon Kingdom lets you decide what kind of character you want to make and how you're going to win the game while modern games give you a role in the story they're telling and you don't have any choice but to follow along.

Define JRPG
>>
>>323232832
It's actually pretty cool, LOTR with a battle system inspired by FF10. There was also a GBA version, though the gameplay is more Fire Emblem and not really as good.
>>
>>323233131
OP here, I did not mean for the image to cause controversy - just wanted a game neutral JRPG image!!
>>
>>323232830
I want to be Nemissa

>>323228185
Rather than FF7, Chrono Cross. Has slightly better graphics, more characters, better story, and more fun overall imo
>>
>>323228185
Dark souls
>>
>>323231660
Damn, there's no more.
>>
>>323233451
the term itself is controversial, either tell us your definition or i'm going to have to say Dark Souls
>>
>>323233575
Well, I mean JRPG - Dark Souls is a Japanese RPG, but it doesn't really fit the mold of a traditional JRPG..
>>
>>323233693
Again, thats why I asked you to define it? I could say Ys, Tales, Etrian, etc

what do you mean?

Story isn't innovative, but a nice mashup of christian and norse themes, which makes the following point possible.
It has a nice setting and varied areas.
Good sense of discovery and adventure.
Cute heroes, good villans/antiheroes.
It doesn't drag on forever. Very little filler/grind.
Great music.
Fun combat.
Neat things to discover if you decide to play it again.

>>323235273
It's like Killer 7, you're on rails and depending on how well you do in battle you get a resources tha lets you investigate different objects or take alternate paths through each area.
In combat you use up items to deal damage and each character has a different attack pattern for each item. It's alright, but you have to play a lot of fights in practice mode to get the extra stats for mastering each item.
>>
>>323235797
> but you have to play a lot of fights in practice mode to get the extra stats for mastering each item.

So kinda like Knights in the Nightmare leveling system, It's weird how a series managed to have 3 games, all different gameplay styles, all different stories yet still be connected. Yggdra Union is still probably one of my favorite games of all time
>>
>>323235273
A bit like a point and click adventure.
Move from screen to screen and inspect various things using points you earn in combat. Interacting with them gives you lore, items, triggers combat, opens new paths, buffs/debuffs etc.

Combat relies on using items which have durability. You can only take 4 into combat and various characters can use them in farious ways (single target, muti target, piercing, targeting front/back row, various special effects), and can learn special attacks as they use them, although only the character whose prefered items it is can learn the highest level of special attack.
>>
>>323234812
Yeah because of all these bad recommendations. If a casual asks for recommendations, you don't recommend the best games you can think of. You recommend something that's easy for them to be wowed by like a recent FF game or something. Give a normie 5 minutes with Chrono Trigger and he'll drop it.

This became a massive success purely on the selling point of it's being "the best JRPG for someone who's never played one." It's also just the best JRPG.
>>
>>323236447
Chrono Trigger is a good suggestion because it's a baby game for babies. As long as you fight the scripted encounters you'll easily blow past anything but the optional encounters.
