    Recommend some good JRPG's?

    I've been playing FFIX on my old PS One lately and it got me thinking that I want to play some of the newer JRPGs on the PS3.

    I know NIS makes JRPGs for the PS3, and there are also others as well.

    I'm curious what you guys would recommend.

    Trophies are not an issue. Just want to know what would be some good ones to try out.

    Disgaea, Yakuza, FF13, FF13-2, Cross Edge, White Knight Chronicles all are off the top of my head.

    Yakuza is a JRPG...where have I been???

    Anways I enjoyed Last Rebellion, the problem is most people will tell you that the game sucks and its boring. The unique battle system and the old school turn based style is what I really enjoyed about the game

    Atlier Totori, Cross Edge, Disgaea 3 & 4, Nier, Resonance of Fate, Rune Factory, Star Ocean, Tales of Graces F and Valkaryia Chronicles are all worth a look.

    I would recommend Ar Tonelico: Qoga Knell of Ar Ciel, it is very fun.

    Yakuza? WTF? Lol.

    I played White Knight Chronicles before and didn't care for it too much.

    Also, isn't the Disgaea series more of a tactical RPG like FF Tactics and such?

    I also should have mentioned JRPGs that AREN'T Final Fantasy. Lol

    I've been really curious about the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. I've heard they're really good.

    Most of the good JRPG's have already been mentioned, but I'll mention one of those again. NieR. It is currently still my favorite JRPG and game overall on the PS3. I recommend this game to anyone I get a chance to. I've already pulled a fair amount of people into it and they've all loved it.

    Preeeety much what everyone else has stated are on my list as well. You should definitely give Resonance of Fate a shot. It's pretty badass.

    Valkyria Chronicles: Fantastic story, unique gameplay.... but no trophies. Still ranks among the best RPG on the PS3.

    White Knight Chronicles, Atelie Roronar: Sorry, not my cup of tea, bored the heck out of me so while I've played them I can't recommend them.

    Nier: Personally I loved this game and I don't know why it's not more popular. One of the rarest of plats, but well worth it.

    3D Dot Game Heroes: Nice nostalgic game for us old school gamers. I would consider it a RPG in the vein of Zelda. I should have given it more of a chance, but it was a rental.

    NIS Games (Disgaea 3, Cross Edge, Trinity Universe): My guilty pleasure, due to the strategy involved. Final Fantasy Tactics is one of my favorite all time games, and NIS games are FF Tactics on steroids. You can get lost in the micro managing of your troops and items. Don't pass these up if love complete control of your army.

    Hope I helped give you some ideas.

    Yakuza is an RPG (not the prototypical one but still an RPG) and it is Japanese...so it is a JRPG.

    Persona 3 FES, Vagrent Story, Xenogears are all very good JRPGs. Also if you still have a PS2 Persona 4, Nocturne, and Digital Devil Saga are great choices as well.

    Tricky, ain't it? LOL

    I agree with System H. If you don't care if its PS2 or even PS1 get the Persona series 2, 3 and 4! Also get Suikoden. They are the two greatest RPG series ever, regardless of country of origin.

    It is actually listed under the action/adventure genre. It is still a great series/game, but it is not a jrpg.

    Eternal Sonata is also worth mentioning.
