A break from Final Fantasys

For those who are still in the Final Fantasy state of gaming, you should take a look at Disgaea. That Game Rocks!! Personally, instead of getting Final Fantasy X-2, I got Disgaea instead. Im crazy huh. I have nothing against Final Fantasy, in fact I love the series, but I needed a break from, them. But Disgaea can't be passed up. Trust me.

Or you could eschew Japanese RPGs altogether and play some good old western RPGs.
Good ones inlude the Fallout series, Baldur's Gate series... etc. etc.

Shame some people can't learn to broaden their horizons.

Exclamation

knights of the old republic is pretty fun. though I agree fallout was awesome. And who could forget Baldur's Gate when it first came out.

I've wasted enough man hours on Disgaea... OMG, but what a fun game (esp. for people who love to level-up... 9999 lvls...) I'm getting tired of the whole "level-up, get-rewarded-with-cool-CG scheme" that a lot of RPGs fall into...

If you like Disgaea you should like the other game by Nippon-Ichi... I think it's called Phantom Brave. My SRPG-crazy brother got it some time ago and couldn't stop raving about it.

Me? ...I wish I had time to play... Though occasionally I pick up my SP and play some Fire Emblem... ahhh... kinda unforgiving in terms of difficulty (to have nobody die) though...

The dark side calls you.....

Dark jedi owns, you get an evil looking face and everything

KOTOR is one of the few western RPG's that I have enjoyed, that I can think of right now anyway. I think I'll try Fallout, since I've heard good things.

Yeah, I've heard of that too. Im considering to get it. I also heard of La Pucille, or something like that.

As for Western RPGs. Rpgs are Rpgs, leave them alone! Some are great, some suck regardless from where they are. Don't be ignorant. Open your eyes, and try new things.

Has anyone tried a game called Ragnarok? Its supposed to be an online RPG game, but I don't know how it plays. A little help here?

Today I bought Final Fantasy chronicles and origins so I doubt I'll take a break from the anytime soon (I still have to finish 9 and X-2). I'm missing Anthology now..... I shall go to hunt it soon.

A break from Final Fantasy? No way!
Just got Final Fantasy X-2, so I'm looking forward hours of fun with Yuna and her friends!

Maybe I'll check it out after I've finished FFX-2 (and some other games).

Personally, I thought that having a sequel could have been better than FF-X. But it was not as good. The thought of the whole game revolving around girls is not as fun. Especially, when they act too feminine.

I took my break from Final Fantasy games a long time ago.. Since I've played video games when I was very young, I played the classics like Final fantasy mystic quest, Final fantasy 4 and Final fantasy 6.. When I learned about emulators later I played Final fantasy 5. ^^; I was a huge fan of the early games.. And I still am. I mean FF6 is my favorite game ever, even if it's not an anime style game. I liked FF7.. But I admit I didn't like it as much as the earlier ones.. FF8 is what really made me stray from the series. I don't think it's bad, but personally I didn't like it very much. I didn't get into it at all. FF9 was the only Final fantasy that I liked after FF7.. I didn't like FFX for some reason.

I'm not difficult when it comes to RPG's.. There are RPG's on the Snes that I've played that everyone hates.. And that I was addicted to. There are many series that I never got tired of.. Like Suikoden series or Breath of Fire series.. But I don't know.. It seemed that the Final Fantasy series changed a lot. Well, each games were very different from the others. But it seemed that as the series advanced, the creators were trying to reach a larger audience..

hey hey another fan of 6. "cheers chummer, my favorite too"

i personally liked Suikoden's whole series more than the FF series. chrono trigger as well. which reminds me of the long time rumors ofa 3rd chrono game, but ihaven't believed those in so very long.

i haven't played "disgaea" so i can't comment on it. as for 'western' RPG's i've played some good and bad, as well as good/bad from japan (furthermore, usually the good ones are the only ones to get ported to american systems). anycase there are a whole bunch of good games out there, don't limit yourself by preconcieved notions.

I haven't played any Final Fantasy games in awhile because I don't own a PS2 or Gamecube. I never did enjoy FF 8 so I probably will not play FF X The only RPG I'm playing right is Neverwinter Nights, however I'm planning on getting a PS2 to play Xenosaga I and II.

Neverwinter nights is great especially with the newest epic expansions... but..

Square Enix are still the geniuses of RPGs I think . I started FFXI..and its addictive beyond belief.

Luckily, SE is so good that FFXI has little or no bugs (I havent found any anyway), looks incredible, is multi-platform sharing the same servers, and the best part:

A good half or more of the player population is Japanese, so its a good place to practice the japanese we've learned from anime . Plus its a good way to learn more japanese. SE even put in a handy auto-translator, which isn't perfect, but its better than nothing.

There is that monthly charge..but I personally dont think its so bad. I have never seen a more in depth MMORPG. Everquest may have the hundreds of thousands of items, but FFXI tops it in just about every other way.

Plus, you can be a ninja or a samurai for those who are fans of those two .

Edit: Forgot to mention that most quests and missions are accompanied by scripted video events, that give it a more classic RPG feel. Final Fantasy style boss fights are also included at times.

It's "La Pucelle" and it's actually the prequel to Disgaea (not in terms of "plot", it was actually released 2 years before Disgaea.) looks like it's coming in March. The guy at Netjak who does imports likes SRPGs so he imports a lot of those. He had a lot of good things to say about Disgaea, Front Mission 4, and Generation of Chaos III. Bad things to say about Venus & Braves.

I haven't heard much about Ragnarok.

American RPGs aren't bad. Fallout was good. So was Fallout 2. However..both buggy as hell. Arcanum was also pretty good. The Western RPGs I DON'T like, though, are Western RPGs where they try and be like a Japanese RPG and just horribly fail.
