Arc The Lad III - Get the first two, then decide if this one is worth it.
Arc the Lad I (available now on PSN) is great. A bit short as I hear it's supposed to be more of a prologue to Arc the Lad II. Tactics/RPG is the genre.
Arc the Lad II (also available on PSN) was the climax in the story, and actually the close. The story which was started in part I gets resolved very nicely in this one.
Arc the Lad III is a decent game, but feels somewhat unnecessary. The story wrapped up quite nicely in Arc the Lad II, so this one is kind of the odd one out. It's still a decent game, just not as great as the first two (but graphically better sure).
Legend of Mana - Some of the best in game artwork out there.
Seiken Densetsu is part 1 of this series. This game never came out in USA and I believe was a gameboy game. I've heard great things about it but I've never gotten a Gameboy emulator to check it out.
Seiken Densetsu II, in North America this game was known as "Secret of Mana" (about to be released on iPhone). Secret of Mana is revered by a lot of people. It's a top view Action/RPG with a great epic story, and very memorable characters. It was also one of the first and only RPG's to allow people to drop in and out of your game whenever they please for some funky co-op action.
Seiken Densetsu III never released in USA but I did play it on SNES emulator--That game was completely amazing, that's all I'll say.
Vagrant Story - Another part of the Ivalice Alliance
I actually didn't get to play this one, but I did watch my good friend Vermin play through some of it. From what I seen it looked really good. It was a game that took place in the same world as another previous Square game. Final Fantasy Tactics. The world is called "Ivalice". Square has continued to use this world to stage some of their more recent games. Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy Tactics: A2 Grimoire of the Rift.
A lot of thought and effort was put into Vagrant story, so if you have ever enjoyed any RPG's in the past, this might be a good one for you to pick up if you didn't hear about it in it's time.
Xenogears - Getting this one is a must
One of the most beloved RPG's of all time. Not just by us, but by the Japanese. Metacritic has it at about 83/100.
What's not to like right? Giant robots, anime cut scenes, great artwork, and great music. This one's a must for any RPG anime lover out there.
Anyway. I love you all, thanks for reading, and don't worry we'll be recording a new episode soon. Mr. Jerger should be back soon!
