1 Lorewalkers' Top 5: JRPGs on Thu Feb 09, 2017 6:10 pm

Thought it'd be a fun thing to do to ask people what their top 5's were in a bunch of categories.  This one just sort of came naturally to me as a first category.

I'm just gonna list one game per series because otherwise it'd be a bunch of Squeenix games Smile

1. Chrono Trigger
2. Lufia 2
3. Final Fantasy VI
4. Pokemon
5. Fire Emblem: Awakening

I wouldn't call zeldas rpgs. Maybe zelda 2 but that's debatable.

Can I actually equally nominate FFIV and Chrono Trigger? Those two are basically neck-and-neck for my fifth spot anyway. Razz

1) Chrono Trigger
2) Paper Mario 1+2 (1 for expanding the Mario setting and for the scope of the threat, 2 for everything else)
3) Tales of Symphonia (the only Tales game I've played; others are probably better)
4) FF7
5) Lufia 2

Yes! Let's make this a series! It would also be awesome if we could sum up the winners in any way.

Here's my top 5 (I love top lists):

#05: The Last Story
#04: Fire Emblem
#03: Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
#02: Final Fantasy IX
#01: Final Fantasy X

I was thinking exactly that ZGoten. Start doing semi regular Top 5's and tabulating 'em.

kind of glad to see this is not turning out to be what is your favorite final fantasy, even if final fantasy is showing up a lot. And I also love top lists, just let us never do movies because I will be stuck thinking on that for months and still not come up with a proper top list.

I'm a bit surprised at the lack of Dragon Quest so far. Granted, I've never played past 3, but I was under the impression that the recent ones were pretty good. I gravitate more toward action RPGs these days, but I still kind of like the old turn based ones where you're forced to stop and level grind for an hour. It's a chill way to spend some time after work, and it gives you a chance to savor the area and really get to know its enemies.

Honestly Dragon Quest is such a pure distilled concentrate of jRPGness that most people can't take it.

Does Dark Souls count as a JRPG? It is an RPG and made in Japan. I'll disqualify it since it's not an JRPG in a traditional manner. I've only played about 7 JRPGs so my sample size is limited.

1. FF6
2. FF9
3. Chrono Trigger
4. Suikoden 2
5. FF7

I hesitate to even call this a ranked top 5 because spots 1-4 could trump each other depending on the category (FF6 Story>CT but CT combat style>FF6). They are extremely close to one another.

5) Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
4) Golden Sun: The Lost Age
3) Xenoblade Chronicles
2) Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword
1) Golden Sun: The Broken Seal

...yes I quite like the Golden Sun and Fire Emblem series, how could you tell?

Okay so I'm going to set up a couple of polls in this thread to help flesh out some of the ties we have.

First up: Tied for first place at the moment; Chrono Trigger, or Final Fantasy VI?

I once wrote an article about FFVI vs Chrono Trigger. It's not well written, to be honest. My English wasn't great back then. But I'll pull my verdict from it to justify my vote:

That being said, I can definitely see how Chrono Trigger's approach to the character progression system assists the overall idea of making the genre more accessible and venturing into territories which were almost completely uncharted back in the day. Especially today, with repetitive iterations of games like Madden, Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed, innovation has become a welcome but rare phenomenon almost completely exclusive to indie developers. In this case, however, in the battle of Chrono Trigger vs Final Fantasy VI, innovation loses just slightly to the perfection of tradition.

If we don't have a proper poll set up, I'll toss my voot in for FFVI here.

I've played far too many games to narrow it down to just five, so there are some tied rankings here. Hope no one minds.


    #5 - The Legend of Zelda ~ Majora's Mask / The Legend of Zelda ~ The Wind Waker / Xenosaga Trilogy / Persona 4
    #4 - Dragon Quest 6 / Chrono Trigger / Xenogears
    #3 - Suikoden 2 / Suikoden 5
    #2 - Final Fantasy 6 / Final Fantasy 7 / Final Fantasy 9 / Dragon Quest 8
    #1 - The Legend of Heroes ~ Trails in the Sky SC

JRPG isn't "Japanese RolePlaying Game" so much as its "Japanese-style RolePlaying Game." It refers to the set of gameplay conventions popular with RPGs produced in Japan, and the same is true for WRPGs (IE Western-style). Defining a genre by the country or culture that produced it is... kind of bigoted. But anyway, Dark Souls would be a WRPG because it borrows more from Western conventions (real-time combat, lots of character customization, avatar creation, open-ended nonlinear gameplay, etc.) than Japanese conventions.

So I've been debating the best way to... do this. A video would probably simply take too much time that I don't have, and I don't want to try to commit to something I can't do. Any other ideas, before I roll out the next one?

To do what, specifically?

View user profile

25 Re: Lorewalkers' Top 5: JRPGs on Tue Mar 14, 2017 1:32 pm

I will answer via examples;

The obvious answer, that cannot happen, is to do a video tabulating the Top 5 across the various votes and post that. This would hopefully A: Encourage more people to hit the forums, if only to weigh in, B: Be a Top # video which tends to be popular, C: Allow those on the forums to get their voices heard, and ... I guess that's it.

The more I think about it the more I want to try to squeeze that in somehow.
