You could Try Kingdom Hearts.. My sister's friend's brother is only 9 and he plays kingdom hearts, he started when he was 8 though

Re: Recommend an RPG for my 8 year old Gamer.......

I noticed a lot of people in here who don't know how to read. The game is for an 8 year old boy. Games like Magna Carta, Kingdom Hearts, FFX, FFX-2, Star Ocean and Shadow Hearts are not meant for children.

The following games are all rated E.

  1. Pokemon - GBA, DS, GC
  2. Megaman Legends - PS1
  3. Paper Mario - GC
  4. Final Fantasy 1 and 2 - GBA and PS1
  5. Lunar Legend - GBA
  6. Breath of Fire - GBA
  7. Breath of Fire 2 - GBA
  8. Shaman King - GBA
  9. Legend of Zelda - Wind Waker - GC (Not an RPG, IMO, but thought I would throw it in)

I am sure there are more. Most of these games are good, some are mediocre, but overall it is a good place to start. I couldn't find any PS2 RPGs rated below T.

 

 

Please do not send me a friend's request without telling me who you are and where I know you from. Thank you.

OMG OMG OMG!!!  How cute!!!!!  Okay, here's some of my suggestions*:

If you have any PS1 games, here's what I would recommend:

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete
Lunar 2: Eternal Blue
Final Fantasy Chronicles and Anthologies and maybe IX
Final Fantasy Origins
Final Fantasy IV
Chrono Trigger
Chrono Cross
Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure
Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (This game is good, but he may need a little help from you...you guys could play this together!  ^_^)



PS2:
Kingdom Hearts
Beyond Good and Evil
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim
Imma look into the PS2 thing a little more...

GameCube:
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
Paper Mario TTYD
Tales of Symphonia
Fire Emblem: POR


(note: *= from my own collection)

I would suggest anime RPG's, Star Ocean, .Hack, Magna Carta even pokemon. And then some mainstream like Dragon Quest and some older FF's. I wanted to say Morrowind but i remmemberd he is 8, but at least he will learn at how to not get lost lol. But hey, maybe he wont like RPG's, you never know, but worth trying.

Not to be rude, but you obviously didn't play Magna Carta or you just didn't pay very close attention to detail.  There are so many times that they say "damn" and at the beginning of the game alone there's a few joking references about child molesters.  Sorry y'all, Magna Carta, as much as I love that game, I wouldn't even let my little 12-yr-old bro touch.  .hack's a good choice, granted it is kind of confusing at first and he might require maximum assistance.  Other than that, my 10-yr-old cousin plays Elder Scrolls on Xbox but knows we have it on PC and prefers to play it on his computer.  Pokemon's a good choice always .

You sure about Chrono Cross Lady Subaru? I mean...that could be hard for an 8-year-old kid. And .hack...I don't think it would be good for him, it has a confusing, technical and deep storyline that may bore him and keep him away from RPGs lol.

My best friend's son loves .hack and he's seven years old.  I taught him how to play and from there he's done fairly well on his own.  Plus, Chrono Cross was okay in my opinion because I really didn't see any foul language in it, the only thing questionable was when one of the main characters was killed in an FMV, but I've seen rated G movies that are a lot more risque than that.  ^_^  That's the only reason I mentioned those two.  ^_^

Chrono Cross does have a fairly basic battle system, but the story may be a bit confusing for a kid, especially with Kid's slang. And as mentioned just now, there are a few somewhat disturbing CSs that aren't probably suitable for a kid. I say obey the rating on this one.

Except for the gruesome death of Kid.

I refer to the story of those two, those might be very confusing for a kid, not about the CGs...

Either way, I'd probably recommend for the parent who is a console RPG lover to play it first and see what their opinion is on it in any case.  ^_^
