Ghostlight have been pretty good recently bringing the SMT series to Europe and only really missed out on Strange Journey so there's a good chance.

Yeah, I'm kinda regretting getting an EU one now. I bought it when the price crashed because my DS broke. I wasn't actually expecting companies to start supporting the damn thing.

Other than that Chrono Cross and Xenogears are alright I suppose. If you've not played FF Tactics then you really should.

I really enjoyed Vagrant Story although it's a bit obtuse. Parasite Eve would be another good one to try.

Breath of Fire 3 and 4 are excellent.

I loved Front Mission 3.



I feel your pain.
I liked it

You're either very young or have a higher pain threshold for load times, awful combat mechanics and writing that would make an episode of power rangers blush.

Is 18 too young?

Nah I did enjoy it, I understand it had it's problems, I actually liked the combat system.

I didn't really notice the load times, load times in general don't really bother me since I played it on a PSP.

Thought the combat system was one of the worse things about it. All you had was attack, defend and items and the dragoon powers when you did get them added nothing to the game.

When I was 18 FFVII had the greatest story ever written so possibly

I think the great things about most of the RPGs that i played when I was young was the fact the that I added my own story to the game. FFVII was my first JRPG and I know that on my first playthrough I didn't care too much for the "real" story. I made my own s**t up on the way through.

I think it might be the one thing missing from any of the subsequent RPGs I've played bar TES, not JRPG i know, and the etrian odyssey games. I've enjoyed some of the stories that they tell but I inevitably get bored or lose interest at some point with them.

I think that the more focus thats put on narrative the more i lose interest these days. Maybe I'm just outgrowing JRPGS???

Ok guys, I was looking at one of the Ys games there on Steam recently and really liked the look of it. Will probably stick with them being on the PSP/Vita though and was wondering if there is a particular one I should start with?

Any thoughts?
