    This is just your favorite RPG series to have been released on any PlayStation platform.

    For those who know me, and really if you just look at my profile it should be pretty obvious, but my favorite series has been the Suikoden series. Outside of a mostly forgettable Suikoden IV and Tactics which was just OK, this is a series that took up so many hours of my childhood. In fact, I beat Suikoden III a total of 13 times, so that tells you all you need to know.

    My second favorite would probably be the Tales series or the Wild Arms series.

    Well "technically" they have RPG elements, so sure.

    Really hard for me to pick just one... PS One had Breath of Fire IV and most of my favorite Squaresoft games (Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy Tactics, Parasite Eve), PS2 had the .hack tetralogy, Dark Cloud 2 and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and PS3 has Valkyria Chronicles, Nier, and Demon's Souls.

    I guess Sony consoles are my go-to for JRPGs, I don't think I like any console WRPGs. Really hoping some more PS4 JRPG announcements are coming soon, I know Level 5 is on board with the PS4.

    I don't want to give an easy RPG pick for this one. but an RPG game that really got me playing (aside from the big/popular franchises) are Legend of Legaia and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha

    Well, like it or not, the old Final Fantasies are some of my favorites. VI and Tactics to be more precise. With IX ever steadily climbing in the ranks. Past that, Wild Arms, Breath of Fire, Shadow Madness (What? It's good.), Jade Cocoon, Megaman Legends (if that counts), Vagrant Story, Tales of, Threads of Fate, Saga Frontier, Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring, Xenogear, Chrono Trigger/Cross, and I guess I'll stop there for now. SNES and PlayStation were big RPG consoles for me.

    EDIT: Thousand Arms. Can't forget Thousand Arms. ;) Oh, just remembered Monster Seed. Love that game. Actually just got it in the mail. That's right, I revisit classics and I'm not ashamed to admit it. They don't make them like they used to!

    Tough to pick one, as there are games from each series I loved.

    FFVII/IX, Dragon Quest VII/VIII, Wild Arms 1/2, Lunar, Suikoden (minus 4/Tactics), SMT Series. Im sure there are others

    Arc the Lad and ShadowHearts are other good series, though the last ShadowHearts game was rather garbage.

    Until the PS3 came out, Final Fantasy was my rpg franchise of choice. I really like traditional turn based jrpgs, but I also really like the Mana games (err... Legend of Mana on PS1), Ragnarok Odyssey, and Kingdom Hearts. For the PS4 generation, I'm giving everyone else a shot.

    Did you not care for FFVIII? Why do you feel this way if so?

    I still have yet to try Kingdom Hearts. I always thought it would be horrible because of Disney characters, but most I talk to absolutely love it.

    Lol I accidentally wrote the wrong roman numerals. I meant to say pre-XIII. That game just got on my nerves, so much so that I haven't even tried XIII-2 or Lightning Returns. FFVIII is probably my favorite FF ever actually, in close contention with XII.

    There is only one Atlus title in all of history I failed to enjoy. And that was Catherine. I just couldn't get into the gameplay. Enjoyed the story though. Everything else I've played from them, even the lesser known titles, I have enjoyed. Even DemiKids. They are just a solid development company.
