Looking for rec's for funny RPG's that would appeal to tweens like Kingdom hearts, Zelda & Tales of Vesperia. As much as I love the FF franchise, my 11 year old doesn't care for FF. Any recs for any game system would be appreciated!

yeah, as in the characters can marry people of either sex, have sex, even though it is not graphic, and you have to buy condoms to use when you do have sex or else your character can get an std, or in the case of your spouse, a child. not sure if you would want an 11 year old playing fable or not.

to be honest, i can't really think of any rpgs that fit your requests, especially with the no ff part. which means no games similar to them either

if you can somehow get your kid Earthbound for the SNES, that game is hillarious.

IMHO we have to go oldschool for some good, funny RPGs.

Albert Oddysey - Sega Saturn (im really hoping this one gets ported over to a more current system)
Lunar Silver Star Story and Lunar Eternal Blue - Either the original Sega CD versions or the PS1 remakes
Guardians Crusade - PS1
Popful mail - Sega CD

Or have you tried Blue Dragon for Xbox 360?

Another game I can recommend would be Azure Dreams for PS1. I think it has a few things that would appeal to a 11 year old, including a monster collecting element kinda like pokemon. The battle system is pretty straight forward. You climb through a tower, but it resets every time you re-enter it, as does your level and attributes. The only thing that isn't affected is the levels and attributes of any monsters you take with you. It is really a quite in-depth game. It took more over 100 hours to play through.

Has he tried any Dragon Quest? Costume Quest is a good dl option too, though it's quite short.

Costume Quest would definately be appropriate for an 11 year old.

But I would question the dragon quest series. I know people in their 30s who can't even sit through them to finish them. They are usually pretty long an drawn out. if the kid enjoys level grinding for hours and hours on end then he might enjoy them though

Yeah, I love them, and my stepdaughter enjoyed them when she was pretty young, but the DQ series isn't for everyone. I think that Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime and DQ Monsters Joker (for the DS) might be a good place to start in terms of getting an 11yo boy into the series though.

W. Long says:
Rocket Slime and Joker definately, but I think the pacing of the main series is definately more adult.

I remember Dragon Quest 1, when it came out on NES and originally it was called Dragon Warrior for its american release. Definately a classic. Nothing like leveling up and beating the green dragon and saving the princess for the first time.

If you have a Gamecube or Wii, try Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The dialogue is hilarious and it's a pretty challenging RPG as well.

There's also the Square-developed Super Mario RPG on Wii Virtual Console. Chrono Trigger (DS) is also generally light-hearted. To exhaust the Mario RPGs, you've got the N64 one on VC I think, as well as the Mario & Luigi series on GBA and DS. Super Paper Mario on Wii may be more to Tanya's kids' liking since it's an action RPG.

Actually, if what your kids really want is just an action adventure with a long story, look into the Ratchet & Clank Future series on PS3.

"Chrono Trigger (DS) is also generally light-hearted."

And it's freaking excellent. I'd heartily recommend Chrono Trigger for his age. Minimal grinding, lots of fun characters, and an excellent message of friendship and responsibility. If you haven't played it yet, buy two copies :P

Minimal grinding until you want the better endings lol

Chrono Trigger is one of my all time favorite rpg's I don't know why I didn't think of it.

How about Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank? Or any of the various LEGO games?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 4, 2012 10:12:10 AM PDT
None of those are RPGs, though they are good games for kids. :)

Tales of Graces F was just released, I personally thought it was the most lol worthy of the tales games yet, since you enjoyed Tales of Vesperia.

"Pascal, what's an airhead?"
"It's someone who is so smart, they can control the air with their MIND"
"wow, you're amazing."

What about Magical StarSign (DS)? Some of the dialogue is kinda funny-especially the bunny character and combat can be challenging at times..

If you have an Xbox (not 360), The Hobbit would be perfect. No bad language and it's actually challenging in many parts, yet not impossible.

Warning, the end is abrupt, but even that doesn't stop this from being in my top 10 games of all time.

The other Xbox game I can wholeheartedly recommend is Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat. Sure, she's buxom (she's not bad, she's just drawn with large lungs). There is no foul language and no sexual insinuations. And I LOVE how the controller vibrates as you get close to buried treasure.

Both are kid friendly and fun.

On the xbox live indie game channel, these downloadable old-school RPGs are funny (and only $1 each!).

Breath of Death VII
Cthulhu Saves the World

For PC I would say Cthulu Saves The World. It's available on Steam, and you can get Cthulu and Breath of Death VII as a bundle for really cheap.
