JRPG's for PC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I must admit that back in my console days (eww!) I was a huge fan of JRPG's. But I no longer own any consoles. Are there any good JRPG's for PC that have decent-ish graphics? The only one I know of is The Last Remnant which comes out February 09 for PC.

Thank you.

I would look into Final Fantasy franchise... I played FF7 and with the exception of the fact that it's about 10 years old, graphics are horrible (320x240 background, everyone's arms are big cubes and everyone has static expressions on their faces...if any at all, horrible animation), possibly doesn't even work in Vista and the background music is in MIDI... it's the best JRPG (possibly the best RPG) I've ever played. Now I haven't been really up to FF lately (ages TBH), no clue about what's the latest version and what there's out for PC, but you should look into them... if the series is still going on, I would assume the games are still at least half decent, maybe there's something just for you.

What I do is just load up my PSX emulator and load all my PS1 games either directly or by downloading the game images. I mostly only do it with the games I own but I don't have a PS1 anymore, so yeah.

Some good games I play are Chrono Trigger and Suikoden.

I don't really know much about JRPGs, but I believe Suikoden and Suikoden II were also JRPGs.

Try searching for the Legend of Heroes RPG, its a pretty decent game. Its for the PC, while not graphically intense, it has that retro look to it.

I've heard the sixth one was pretty popular in Japan, and pretty long as well, since there is three games for it.

I enjoyed the ones I've played. I want to play the sixth, but it seems hard to find---especially in english
