>>28558 Chrono Trigger (SNES). Final Fantasy VI (SNES) and Final Fantasy IX (PSX). Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (n64, Gamecube, Wii, 3DS) Dragon Quest IV, V and VI (I recommend playing VI first, then IV and then V - they're all good, but VI is the poorest one, and while IV is just amazing, it doesn't even get close to how good V is) (SNES, DS). The two Fire Emblems for DS (the second one doesn't have an official translation, but there's a great fan translation - the second one for DS is my favorite Fire Emblem, too). Then, the Fire Emblems for GBA. If you like that style of gameplay, Final Fantasy Tactics (PSX), Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA) and Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (DS) are great as well. Recettear (PC). Etrian Odyssey (DS). Summon Night: Swordcraft Story, specially if you play as Pratty with Sugar as your beast (GBA)
... There's many more, but you have a good number there. Enjoy.
>>28999 >Get your head out of your ass, both are decent games. VI is a jewel with great, lovable characters, fantastic villains, a complex yet unforgettable plot, and lots of fun that amount to an extremely enjoyable ride.
VII is angsty, clichéd, clunky shit that only narutards and yaoi fangirls like.
VI has some darkness in its plot, sure, but it doesn't dwell on it. It focuses on it only when it's absolutely necessary, and the rest of the time, you got things like Ultros - hell, even Kefka is humorous. VII, on the other hand, is what your typical self-cutter takes as inspiration for cheap tattoos.
No, neither of them are decent. VI is stellar, and VII is garbage.
>>29032 you're hilarious as both 6 & 7 have pretty similar up and down points. 6 is also far darker in its later half than 7 ever was. everything you said in defense of 6 can be said of 7, except the villain (sorry sephiroth fans, hes a pretty awful villain) I wouldnt recommend either FF game for a first jrpg experience. Both are clunky and slow, both rely on mechanics that are far too archaic for any modern gamer, and especially for someone unused to jrpg tendencies.
>>29073 >everything you said in defense of 6 can be said of 7 >implying, Cloud, Tifa and company hold a candle to the complex yet amenable cast in VI >implying all the intricacies you find in the plot of VI can be found in VII's linear, ultra-simplified, extremely clichéd shit plot (though of course, many of its plot points are plagiarized straight from VI, but that doesn't mean they're similar in any other way) >implying the bore of a plot you get in VII is in any way as unforgettable as the fun adventures you have in VI >implying any adversaries in VII, not even just Sepiroth, are as lovable as VI's You're crazy.
Also, VI was one of my first JRPGs... back when the west knew it only as III. It's quite alright as a first JRPG. Sure, the battle controls are a bit peculiar and might get you a couple of hours to get used to, but at least they aren't as unresponsive as VII's.
>>29087 20-something that has played less JRPGs than his age detected.
What did VII originate? Other than being the first popular 3D JRPG (not the first one, mind you. The first popular one). Even everpresent grimdark angst was part of games that came before FFVII, and did it much better.
But of course, you won't agree. That's the thing with FFVII shitters. They're like TWEWY fags in that sense: it's as if they're brainwashed, and can't hear to reason. They believe their favorite shit vidya are high art just because it's as whiny as them.
bravely default is a pretty decent suggestion. The customization is fun, the music is great, and the story is pretty meh. Most jrpgs have pretty meh stories, so take that as you would. Its great benefit is that all the custom options you can set up making it very accessible and a decent first step into this genre.
>>29259 While it is designed for beginners it isn't as highly regarded as Chrono Trigger while Chrono Trigger still being easily accessible. CT is a great place to start due to its length, difficulty, and the battle mechanics due to the group tech system.
It is a classic game and easily accessible to new people to the genre. Though I do believe there are better JRPG's than CT out there.
>>29089 >What did VII originate? What did FFVI originate? First part of the game is on rails until you get to the World of Ruin, which in turn it becomes a sub-par SaGa game. None-the-less you can see a lot of its elements of its story come from even Final Fantasy II. Though they aren't exact you still get things like an evil empire that a resistance is fighting against, one that actually comes through and terrorizes the people with such things as carpet bombings, and instead of the WoR the world is flooded with demons from Hell itself. Not only that but has many staples of Final Fantasy like Cid, Chocobos, Ultima, and the like.
Both Final Fantasy VI and VII are decent games, and I am always baffled to see why one can detest the other one unless they are a blind fanboy.
Legend of dragoon is pretty good, It's got a neat battle system that might be able to keep you engaged if you're worried about the customary system being to slow. Also Skies of arcadia is pretty good as well.
>>30464 nostalgia and feels. more people played FFT and, so far as this thread is concerned, is a better jump in point that ogre is. It cant be denied that Ogre is great, but for the reasons mentioned above its not usually recommended.
>>28691 Thumbs up for Chrono Trigger, but even more so for Radiant Historia. Combat is pretty simple but has enough variety to stay engaging, you're allowed some freedom but have enough direction to not get lost. Good story too. A nice choice for a first JRPG, or even a first RPG.
