I want to get into JRPGs. What'd you recommend limited to psp, nds and ps2 emulators? I don't mind linear as long as it has cohesive plot that makes sense and interesting characters.

Persona 4

I don't understand this strange limitation. Do you just not want to play PS1, SNES and GBA games for some reason?
>>

Literally none, lol.
>>
>>283428590
Can't get over pixels, sorry. Besides, most of the jap franchises are rehashed, so you'll get the same game with updsted graphics and mechanics on those systems.

Persona 3 FES or Persona 3 Portable. FES has a sort of epilogue called The Answer, but Portable has two main characters you can play as, one female and one male. The content differs in both playthroughs, I would honestly suggest FES.

>>283427618
Radiant historia for the nds
>>
>>283429010
P3P gives you direct control over your party members, though. In FES they're AI-controlled, which can result in some frustrating situations.

The general consensus I've seen is that P3P is the way to go.

But the real answer is just play Persona 4.

you are missing out on some of the best rpgs on the snes and ps1

>Can't get over pixels, sorry.

Uh... Okay. I can't really give you a good RPG launching point if you don't want SNES or PS1 games, because I've barely bothered with the genre beyond that.

Good luck with others' recommendations though.

This, plus Shinji route in female version. P3 has better atmosphere than 4, but it's subjective.

Well, in their defense, OP even said he "can't get over pixels", so obviously the most casual shit would be best for him.

Sorry, can't help you there besides steering you in the right direction. Why would you want to play shitty games?

Ar Tonelico, Xenosaga, Etrian Oddysey, KH/FF, TWEWY, Odin Sphere, Rune Facory, etc.

That would be pokemon

>>283430327
The last proper Persona game came out in 2008, SMT was a few years ago. I'd imagine the Tales of series or Final Fantasy still rakes in more money than Atlus.

Persona 3, P4 is better played on Vita.
>>283428995
Because you're being such a faggot over THIS MANY PIXELS IS GOOD BUT THIS IS TOO LITTLE SO I DON'T PLAY I'm going to tell you to play Chrono Trigger on DS.
Seriously, DS has exact same resolution as SNES, you're being a faget.

OP, don't even bother playing RPGs. Just stick to your comfort zone of AAA shit like CoD and Uncharted.
>>
>>283428995
Jesus christ you're retarded. Let me be blunt anon, RPG's aren't for you.
>>
>>283431572
So many assumptions. RPGs and quests are literally the only games I play. Just happen to not being familiar with japanese ones.
>>

Literally how.
>>
>>283432217
Grew up with PC mainly. My only consoles were Sega and tetris.
>>
>>283432485
>My only consoles were Sega and tetris.
???

Last I checked, Tetris isn't a system, and neither is Sega. Unless you mean those were the only console games you played, in which case Skies of Arcadia says hi.
>>
>>283432485
I wonder what games did you have for Tetris.

Seriously, just play Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV and Persona 3/4.
>>
>>283433176
Persona 3 and 4 a shit.

Does it even count as RPG? You can't customize shit.
>>
>>283428995
both the snes and ps1 had higher resolution than the nds
>>
>>283433650
Your entire persona lineup is customizable.
>>
>Atlus shit
>Persona
>Kingdom Hearts
>Shadow Hearts
>Creepy loli / hentai niche titles

Ignore these plebs, OP. You're asking in the wrong place. All you're going to be recommended is linear weeb shit.

I'd suggest looking into Romancing SaGa, Unlimited Saga, EverGrace and Forever Kingdom, or King's Field: The Ancient City. That's all that comes to mind as far as PS2 goes. I'm not familiar with PSP's library.
>>
if you want to start somewhere, FF9 is a nice and comfy starting place, then look for other FF titles and so on
also, be your own guide god dammit, what's with people being afraid to experiment on stuff like a buncha jokahs
>>
>>283431945
>RPGs and quests are literally the only games I play. Just happen to not being familiar with japanese ones.

Alright, what the fuck RPGs have you played on the PC? It obviously wasn't Wizardry or Ultima and everything influenced by them, because PIXELS.

So that leaves more recent games by the likes of Bioware and Bethseda. Even then, those are "rehashed" too. I'm at a loss. If you want to explore new genres, you need to have an open mind about "pixels" and shit.

So what exactly do you want? Something that's pretty, but not exactly a good game?
>>
>>283437515
That pretty much sounds like exactly what OP is looking for, considering they're being so dismissive of decades of games.
