Since the old one was attracting massive spambots I'm recreating this.

If you have less than 10 posts, can't make threads, and need help with a game, put it here. Spamming here tho will be dealt with HARSHLY. So don't or you will pay the price.

    Hi guys, I am a former (Playstation) Final Fantasy Enthusiast, vi, vii, viii, ix, x. loved all of them very much. I never had an SNES and have not played playstation or PS2 since i finished FFX. I was recently given an xbox360 and I am looking to choose a 360 game to renew my RPG obsession. Recommendations Please. Thanks In advance.

    The only good 360 RPGs I can think of are Tales of Vesperia and Lost Odyssey. Then again, it's kind of hard just to think of one when it comes to the 360, since it's oversaturated by FPS and sports games.

    OK Thanks. It seems like FFXII gets a lot of love as I read through some threads. If i were to buy a ps3 is that a good place to start, or shoud i start where i left off at X-2. It may take me some time to save money for the PS3 but i have little interest for sports and shooters. What about the square enix 360 games?

    Those Dark mentioned are likely the two best received ones, other possible JRPG options are Infinite Undiscovery (maybe not great but I enjoyed it), Magna Carta II, and Resonance of Fate. I would advise a bit of further research on these before buying blindly though as it's very much a taste thing for these :)

    edit - You'd have to buy an original model PS3 to play X-2 or XII on it (or hope they get round to releasing those on PSN), unfortuantely the newer ones don't have the backwards compatibility.

    I didnt know that the ps3 doesnt have backwards compatibility that blows. I assume FFXIII is not an rpg, i will check out the ones you guys recommended thank you

    Stuck on Kurt in Tales of Graces. Do I just need to level grind more? Set difficulty to easy? What is the best strategy?

    I am new to the Disgaea series and I just got Disgaea 4 and D2 for my PS3. I really love everything about them except the control scheme. I am used to Final Fantasy Tactics, Jeanne D'Arc, etc and therefore I am used to up on the controller being up, down being down, etc. I am also used to being able to scroll through the fighters as opposed to having to move the cursor over to each person. Am I missing something here or is this just a control scheme I need to adjust to.

    Well, I don't know why, but I can't seem to make a new post anywhere. I will ask my question here then. EDIT - Never mind I am blind and can see the big "New discussion" button /shrug

    Is there a way to know which 3DS game work only with the new 3DS, or I have to presume that all new games work only with the new one?

    ok thanks, I was just wondering if there was anything on the site about it.

    Here's somewhat unusual question - do folks here consider PvP MMORPGs "RPG enough" not to be offtopic? (for example, Dark Age of Camelot, Warhammer Online etc.).

    I haven't noticed much else than single player games being mentioned, that's why I ask.

    While RPGamer's coverage on these games is scant for various reasons, they can still be discussed in the Role Playing Games board. Most of our forum members just seem to prefer single-player games, or at least prefer talking about them.
    Bravely second...

    Ok, I guessed so. The other part of that "equation" (PvP) is kinda similarly exclusive, PvP players typically think that there's not much space or point in RPing in "their" games.

    Well, if nothing else, at least it's not considered offtopic =)
