Actually the more I think about it, the less I can recommend Bioware games. I can't replay most of them myself because their graphics, gameplay flow and systems age like rotten eggs.
I rather replay a random 90's JRPG than a mid 2000's western RPG, due to how clunky that shit is and how bad graphics age that aren't stylised.
What about Jade Empire? I play it to this day & one of my favourite games of all-time. It's great fun, great story & still looks gorgeous for a 15 year-old game from the original Xbox & so many layers to the game & lore when explored.

Hey Juggs I read the other day about where your avatar comes from and why you love that game so much. I just came to weirdly say that I think your love for RPGs is really adorable. I haven't played one in years but Okami was a unique and beautiful experience.
Not sure if I’ve ever had it described that way, but thanks. RPG’s have legitimately helped me escape from real life at times, and I feel like there’s other people who have had a similar experience.

I can’t believe I’m not the only one here still wishing for a Legend of Dragoon remake after all these years. I legit still run through the game once every year or two.

Were you guys as disappointed as I was about Bluepoint’s hint not being LoD after all?
 
Not a fan of 8?
I played through it recently and I think it's overhated, but it comes off as a bit unpolished, unbalanced and short. The story is pretty good though. I like the twist that Rhinoa is the final boss.
Pretty good game, just not on the top of my lists.

Cool. FFVIII was the first game RPG I played, so I've always loved it, even with it's flaws.
 
MK was the first video game I loved as a kid, but the turn based RPG genre won me over. I've played a ton of ps1 and 16bit RPGs, many of them discovered through GAMEPRO issues. I'll share my retrofavorites first and then the modern ones.

Final Fantasy 6, 7, 8 and Tactics.
Breath of fire 3.
Legend of the dragoon of course. (Happy to see people appreciating it)
Suikoden 2 (Be aware that the creators of this series are kickstarting a spiritual successor)

Then,
Persona 5. I remembered persona 2 from ps1, and gave it a try despite not being an anime fan.
Dragon quest 11. Even if its too cutie for my taste, I played and enjoyed all of it.
Both games are top quality and easily the best turn based rpgs of the decade. they have everything an RPG player wants, turned up to eleven.

Nier Automata. I could write pages for this... Drop what you do and live this experience



I reeeeeeeeally wish they’d give LoD the FF7 treatment with a full update.
....Do you really?
