Turn based RPG’s

You know, I'm truly fan of turn based RPG's. I don't like action or time based games too much.. Especially if it involves lot's of button mashing. I prefer to play it slow, to think about my next few turns and etc.. Well, you know ;) I like when brain wins instead of reaction. So here is the list:

1. Final Fantasy X
2. Dragon quest
3. Persona 4
4. Disgaea

Maybe you wanna add some to this list? I'm always in need to update it. ;)

  1. Persona :D DD

    Heyyyyy SENSEI!!!

  2. I got plenty of Turn-Based RPG games for PS2 (well, if you put strategy genre into Turn-Based RPG also). But I got no chance to try them out one by one, but I’ll try to help out with few game titles that I currently playing or the game that I have finished, here goes nothing:

    The game that I’ve played/finished:

    -Suikoden Series (III,IV,V) I’ve finished all of the series, great story and as suikoden game tradition of 108 recruitable characters it’s always fun ^^

    -Suikoden Tactic, the time frame of the game taken before and after suikoden IV (If you load your complete suikoden IV data before starts this game “Hero” from suikoden IV is available for you to recruit.

    -Front Mission 4 and 5, well if you really like turn based battle system, you must put these games into “MUST-BUY” list. Fully customizable and the custom parts can be carry into FMV. One of Square-Enix great masterpiece.

    -Vakyrie Profile 2 Silmeria, I shouldn’t put this game into Turn Based list actually, but this game require no time limit for you to think either which you can take as much time as you want during battle, even you gain fully movement for the characters during battle. beautiful graphic that can match Final Fantasy Series

    -Dynasty Tactic 2, Great game, great battle system. This is Koei game that is similiar to Dynasty Warrior. The different is the battle, while dynasty warrior game series are action games, this is a tactic game. If you can arrange the position very well, you can do combo tactic which is awesome.

    -Atelier Iris Series (1,2,3) These games offer lotsa side quests and friendly graphic, similiar to disgaea graphic if you have one. Not really special if you ask me.

    And here are the list of the games that maybe a Turn Based RPG games @_@
    (Though i haven’t try them out yet)

    -Magnacarta, I remembered seeing my friend playing this game, it has battle system like legend of dragoon (PSX) which allow you to trigger button at exact time.

    -Wild Arms (3,4,5,AlterCode F,Vth Vanguard), RPG puzzle that require brain alot.

    -Grandia (X, 2, 3), I’m not pretty sure about this game whether it’s a turn based RPG or not.

    The other games I’m not really sure whether a turn based RPGs or not, when I figure it out, will update it at once.

  3. Suikoden 3, 4, 5
    Shadow Hearts 1, 2, 3
    Final Fantas X-2

  4. xenosaga 1,2 and 3
    the 3rd is best

    stella deus
    M.S. SAGA a new dawn
    they are all ps2 games its all i got

  5. You could add:

    1. The Lord Of The Rings The Third Age – it’s done by EA but got buried when they released the real time games of the movies.
    2. Persona 3 and Persona 3 FES
    3. Shadow Hearts
    4. Shadow Hearts Covenant
    5. Shadow Hearts From The New World
    6. Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga
    7. Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga 2
    8. Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmera
    9. Ring Of Red – this is an old one so you may have to hunt around for it but it is worthwhile.

    All of these games are turn based in their combat systems.

  6. Legaia 2….lol

  7. Arc the Lad…

  8. My faves on the Ps2:

    Shin Megami Tensei (3): Nocturne
    Shadow Hearts
    Shadow Hearts (2) Covenant
    Valkyrie Profile (2): Silmeria
    Final Fantasy X
    Disgaea Hour Of Darkness (if you like it you can try the second game)
    Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha Vs. The Soulles Army
    Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha (2) Vs. King Abaddon
    Persona 4 (way better than the third)
    Persona 3
    Digital Devil Saga
    Digital Devil Saga 2 (the two games are a complete story)
    Dragon Quest VIII (not as good as VI and IX on the DS)
    Wizardry: Tales Of The Forsaken Land

    I want to play these (in the near future):
    Suikoden series
    Wild Arms series
    Xenosaga series

  9. I think Suikoden IV+V and Shadow Hearts II are really missing in this list – I really loved them and could’nt stop playing.
    If you are interested in purely tactical games without a time component I would advise “Arc – Twilight of the Spirits”. It’s a great game with a really good story and a great battle system. I really wish I hadn’t allready played it 3 times xD
