I don't know, I've never been that huge of a fan of them.

Valkyrie Profile is one of my favorites but I hated the sequel and Star Ocean 2 is probably their only other game I could say I liked enough to finish.

whatever happened to the tri-ace of old, man? after Star Ocean 3... well, some would say during Star Ocean 3... they just took a dump. I myself thought RoF was at least decent, but it was still no Valkyrie Profile or SO2. even their sound company made a better game than any of their current-gen attempts.

I'm sorry you feel that way, his emo phase did go on a little long I'll give you that; he recovered fairly well though.

voice acting was so godawful... I was glad they at least gave the option to change it to Japanese on the PS3 version. that was..... slightly more bearable. although as soon as edge turned into super-emo, it still made me want to snap the game in half.

I enjoyed both well enough, the voice acting was grating though.

The first cutscene was enough to put it on suicide watch. After playing for about 15 hours, I took it to a high hilltop and gave it freedom.

story/characters became a drag way before that, though.

I liked the first 30 hours of Star Ocean 4; the battle system became a drag after that.

I did. That shiny cover sticks out in my collection highlighting its crushing disappointment. The Last Remnant was a turd.

It was Star Ocean 4 you liked, wasn't it?

RoF was fantastic.

Not many games are terrible. Just a few mentioned in this thread; though I wouldn't really call Radiant Historia or Valkyria Chronicles terrible.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 11, 2012 5:08:47 PM PST
Valkyria Chronicles was awesome. RoF did suck though.

WHY ARE SO MANY GAMES TERRIBLE?

I don't want to play terrible games, I want to play good games.

Infinite Undiscovery is terrible too.

You should definitely play The Last Remnant though.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 11, 2012 4:53:31 PM PST
Totally. Valkyria Chronicles and Resonance of Fate are terrible. I bow to Strider's superior JRPG/SRPG views! :)

Now I need to go play games that are superior like The Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery!

I will disagree also. I didn't think this game was mind-blowingly innovative or even goty. But it was fun, the story and time travel mechanics were interesting (definitely not on the same level as chrono trigger though, but what is?), and was really a pretty solid game overall.

I can understand not thinking this is a great game, but I feel likes its solid enough to where I don't understand all the hate.

same here. I thought the dual-timelines was fascinating. the battle system, the music, and general gameplay were also good.

I hope I can be the second JRPGer in command, I'll make sure to intervene more frequently hehe.

It's so dumb that we all get showered in down votes just for expressing honest opinions. Seriously if there is one persons opinion to take with weight in this board in regards to JRPS it's yours.

Agree with Strider. I tried to start this game numerous times and each time I woke up an hour later.

I stumbled across Mark's (from CGR, I've followed his channel for ages now) review for the game:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kMUoNCS_Xo

He's always very enthusiastic when it comes to old-school JRPGs, but it seems that he really didn't completely enjoy the game, and we've agreed countless times. He also reminds: Buyer beware, at least 10h to "get into" the game.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 11, 2012 1:29:08 PM PST
Violently disagree about this. Fantastic game.

By the way, thanks for contributing to this post, I've done further research about the game now.
It seems the rabid fanboys got mad at your OPINION, pretty common eh?

Yeah. It's hurts me to say this because I had high hopes for this game, but it fails on almost every level. It's like StriderNeo says "an RPG by the numbers". What annoys me is that they have a time travel mechanic that manages to be boring and tedious, but they could have just copied the ancient Chrono Trigger and did a better job. It's sad. The combat looks innovative at first glance, but it suffers due to the fact that almost every move requires mana to execute. It turns into a real grind. RPGs need to ditch non-regenerating mana entirely, it's a nonsensical and outdated mechanic.
