What is your opinion on the best RPG's (exluding Poke'mon)?
2 Words Chrono Trigger.
Never been fond of the NDS at all really, personally, it's not my type of hand held. (I even opted to play chrono trigger on my psp, rather then play it on the ds)I've never had an issue with the actual translations/language in chrono trigger, it's always been quite awesome. through out the countless times i've played it.regardless of what ever "additions" the ds verisons have, it doesn't really at all improve the experience.all that is added is i think more endings and the dream eater? which i didn't like.Sure it's fantastic for nostalgia, but it's overall, one of the greatest RPG's i've ever played.
but the new translation is the main factor that makes the DS version of the game the definitive one for english speakers.
Fixed that for you.
The DS has a really impressive library of RPGs. Picking is kinda hard, there are some I've yet to play that seem really good too.If you're looking for a traditional one, I'd go for Final Fantasy III, Chrono Trigger, or even Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.If you're looking for interesting mechanics you might wanna try out that Sonic one, I don't think a lot of people liked it but, I thought it was pretty neat.Strategy RPG wise, your best bet is either Disgaea DS or one of the Advance Wars games. There's a Bleach one too that's not bad, I liked it but it might have been nostalgia over when I actually liked the series. If you like Bleach though it's pretty good and it's pretty similar to Fire Emblem.Rougelikes, I can highly recommend Izuna Legend of the Unemployed Ninja. It's sequel is even better and the story from the first one isn't terribly important to enjoy it but it adds a boost. There's a decent bit of characters to use in the second one. The Etrian Odyssey games are pretty great too but you have to draw your own maps in it. I thought it was a really cool and unique mechanic but I could see it boring a lot of people.Of course there's the Pokemon games too, HGSS were my favorites as your Pokemon can follow you around, the minigame is fun this time, and Gold is special to me. Of course if you really like Pokemon the Mystery Dungeons are pretty good roguelikes. While Explorers of Sky is probably the best one, I prefer Blue Rescue Team.After thinking for a bit I'm not really sure if the Etrian Odyssey games should even be considered roguelikes but the dungeon layout makes me associate it with the sub-genre pretty heavily. They're kinda odd. Unique and interesting if you don't mind cartography.
There's just something about it that needs it to be played on the SNES. And isn't Etrian Odyssey hard as hell?
