Any Recommendations for only JRPG games for the psp?

 

Not action RPGS
Not strategy RPGS

 

Strictly JRPGS like:

Brave Story

 

psx classics are also welcomed

 

My fav jrpg since I was a kid is FF7, so

I am looking for games close to that

please don't say crisis core because that is an action rpg.

 

I am looking for strictly JRPG titles

as I searched forums and googles for a list of rpgs

but other websites and search engines

combine jrpgs with strategy, tactics, and action rpgs.

 

So, I really could use recommendations on psp/ps1 turn-based jrpgs.

 

Thank you in advanced.

Here's a list of some turn-based Japanese RPGs off the top of my head (available from the PSOne library):

 

Xenogears

Final Fantasy Origins

Final Fantasy V

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy VIII

Final Fantasy IX

The Legend of Dragoon

Wild Arms

Grandia

Chrono Trigger

Chrono Cross

Suikoden

If you're looking for PSP games I'd recommend:

Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection

 

I also second the games already suggested as far as PSOne classics go.

 

I would also recommend the Final Fantasy I & II Anniversary Editions over the Origins versions, if cost and being UMD only doesn't bother you.


PSN Gamercards

Feel free to add me as a friend. Just put "playstation forums" in the friend request.

I recommend Xenogears, Wild Arms, Final Fantasy IX and Legend of Dragoon, and Persona 1

I especially recommend Wild Arms since it has an interesting take on turn based battles, and while Xenogears has a MUCH better story, Wild Arms kept me more interested with the gameplay.

Final Fantasy IX is just a fun game that is fairly meh on the story front, but the gameplay is similar to Final Fantasy VII so I think you will like it.

Legend of Dragoon is just a fantastic game, it is linear, but everything else about this game rocks!

Persona as a series is AMAZING! But only 1 was on the PS1

I agree with these choices.

As of now I'm looking for a decent priced memory stick duo
I'm looking into a 16gb its well priced on ebay/amazon for 20.00
to 24.99.

as of right now I have 2gb memory stick duo pro and with ff7 it takes up
1.5gb, so my assumption is these games are probably pretty huge as well.

there is one JRPG i really enjoy, called Riviera: The Promised Land. It is pretty unique compared to other JRPG's that i have played. it is the first game in Atlus's Dept. Heaven series, and the only one that is NOT an SRPG.
