    If you really enjoyed older FF-type RPGs and don't want to invest a million hours into every game, then play the Dragon Fantasy games. There is still a little bit of grinding if you want to powerhouse everything at the end, but it's not comparable to gearing up for Emerald Weapon in FFVII or anything like that.

    MILD PLOT IRRELEVANT SPOILER FOLLOWS

    The way I explained the game to my friends was by comparing it to Retro City Rampage. It's a spoof of FF and Dragon Quest, and the game constantly parodies random other pop culture things (like in DF: Book II, there's a book on one of the shelves that mentions History of the World Part I; on another shelf across the room, there's a book entitled History of the World Part II with no words in it). I'd go as far to say that they're must-plays for fans of the genre.

    Earthbound had this bizarre sense of humor. It's not really like Earthbound, but if someone liked Earthbound they'd probably get hooked on this game IMO.

    Just got platinum #51 and my first PS4 platinum: Resogun :).

    I think I'm starting to get back in the gaming mood a little bit. My fatigue to play games for a long period of time has gone down a lot over the years, but recently it has felt a bit better. Probably because I'm excited about the PS4 Japanese launch this week.

    I doubt I'll platinum this or AC4, probably not any of the multiplayer games lol. Final Fantasy XIV usually drains all of the time I'd take to play multiplayer of another game. Maybe one day when I'm in that sort of mood, but it hasn't been lately

    Definitely will be checking it out. Thanks for the info. I love old school RPG games, they are a lost genre IMO.

    Got my Guacamelee Platinum not too long ago! Was trying to platinum GTA V, but it gets pretty boring after the main story...

    Yeah I still want to go back and platinum GTA V as well. I thought the multiplayer would keep me coming back for more. But with the lack of online heists and such I kind of just lost interest in the game.

    Yup, my same issue with the game, it needs something more. Or maybe i just need to play with friends.

    Depends on what you mean by old school RPGs.

    There's a lot of the PSP, a few on the Vita, and some on PS Mobile and Minis.

    That's my point though. There were some outstanding ones on PSP. Hopefully as time goes on the Vita will get some more.

    I'm still just not sure what you consider "Old School JRPGs"

    Are you talking about pixel art? Does Cross-Edge count? Do the Tales series count? I don't know what counts, and depending on what your criteria is the answer changes. What about the Disgaea series? Like how old school is old school or is it just the aesthetic you want?

    @MakaiOokami
    if you are referring to the HD collection then yes it's hard. devil may cry 4 took awhile but was still hard.

    the ninja theory game getting s ranks was so easy my bro's 2 week old could get them.

    I think it depends honestly. When I hear old school RPG I think of turn based, with pixel based art. There are different genres within it. Strategy, turn based, etc.

    Well the reason why I say, is because it's hard to define "Turn based"

    FF7 for example you can't just leave running or you'll die.

    However there's timing and stuff required for Cross-Edge. It has pixel art.

    The Disgaea games are strategical, and you can turn on pixelish arts... But they are hand drawn sprites now.

    I just have a hard time defining "Old School" style JRPGs.

    Have you tried the Record of Agarest War series?

    I see what you mean, but when seeing games like FFXII and XIII, those aren't old school to me anymore. I prefer turn based RPG's.

    No I haven't tried the Record of Agarest War series, heard good things though.

    Well there's the Ar Tonelico series
    Atelier series
    Record of Agarest War series
    Dragon Fantasy I and II
    Costume Quest
    Vandal Hearts
    Disgaea series, and more
    Trinity Universe.

    Then again some of those might not fit your qualifications as well. Most of them aren't pixel art.

    There's just the problem of wanting Pixel graphics. People don't want them anymore unless it's a cheap game. That makes it hard to make a good one.
