I re-started Mario Odyssey and loving it all over again. I also just downloaded Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and Blossom Tales, and looking forward to playing those.

@Apollo the Just I sort of want to buy all the old JRPGs and just start going in on them. I was interested in dumb games when I was younger. I definitely missed some greats. Any recommendations? Come one come all!

Gamecube, DS, Nintendo 64. That's all I have for now. I know I probably missed a boatload on the DS and Gamecube.

I've never once played a fire emblem game. Does that make me a bad person?

I'll have to pick up ToS if you're still playing it in 2018 lol.

The GameCube was actually pretty weak as far as JRPGs go. Skies of Arcadia is the only traditional JRPG I'm aware of that's still held in any particular renown. ToS deviates from the formula in terms of combat, but is definitely still a JRPG. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is a very good RPG made in Japan that has almost nothing to do with the usual JRPG model.

The N64 is even weaker. The original Paper Mario might be the only one of note.

The DS, however, is one of the best JRPG systems bar none. You've got access to ports of (sometimes via the GBA slot) for every Final Fantasy game up to VI (I-III don't really hold up, but VI is still one of the best games period) and Chrono Trigger. The GBA slot also gives you the original releases of Pokemon Gen III, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Golden Sun, and more. Then actual DS games give you Pokemon up to Gen VI, Radiant Historia, The World Ends with You, Dragon Quest IX, and more Golden Sun. Strategy JRPGs include Final Fantasy Tactics A2, a Disgaea port, and the Devil Survivor games, of which the second might be my favorite SRPG ever. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon even brings in a roguelike.

Also, you get Summon Night: Swordcraft Story through the GBA port. It's very arguably not an RPG at all, but it's one of the best GBA games out there and is a JRPG in spirit, so it's worth checking out as well.

tl;dr: The DS JRPG library is legendary. You could get years out of it.

My old DS has been sitting for so long its all banged up from being in drawers. I think I'll buy a 3Ds at the same time because that's another system I want. The World Ends with You looked pretty good. I was playing dream drop and was wondering where they came from at one point. I'm definitely interested in Dragon Quest, Tactics and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

Thanks for the list.
