The list is pathetic. This gen is the worst gen for JRPG. Persona5 is the worst jrpg i ever played. PS3 has tons more better JRPG

Final Fantasy 15 has its faults, like the story, but after watching the Brotherhood and Kingsglave tie in movies it helps a lot, and the 4 main characters are great. The gameplay is amazing! The side quests suck yes, but I never got too bored with it due to the engaging gameplay. The score is great as well. It’s was more interesting than Tales of Berseria and Ni No Kuni 2 IMO

ugh with nier listed here it just confirms we need more clarity on what qualifies as rpg. I mean its a good game but role playing elements have made there way into everything now I mean smash ultimate could be considered an rpg today because you level up and equip things in the singleplayer. we need more definitive categories like. rpg. jrpg. trpg (traditional) arpg (action rpg) adventure rpg etc. its getting crazy now. all of these I see as rpg except nier. I do not consider nier an rpg.
Gabriel Espiritu (12 days ago)
Action JRPG
~A(o)S~ (23 days ago)
And you are right, Nier Automata isn't a jrpg, its a hack & slash with RPG elements.
Sky (1 month ago)
Half of these aren't even JRPG... Smfh. Clearly you have NO idea what an actually JRPG is. Persona is a JRPG, most FF games are JRPG, things like DQ Heros is a hack n slash, Nier Automata is an ARPG not a JRPG.
Jeffry De Leon (1 month ago)
Most of these are remasters/remakes. Kinda sad.
SH18 (1 month ago)
Most of all these not good and not what im looking for, once u got to the top 5 the suggestions were way better, however the last turn based RPG I played was Final Fantasy X back on the PS2. So since then there has not been a top quality RPG for the best consoles Sony PlayStation/Xbox. All these latest Final Fantasy HD Remasters don't count as "new games", so what I want is a 1440p or 4k res game built with Unreal Engine 4 or have graphic visuals at or better than Final Fantasy XV quality but with the old school turn base systems from Final Fantasy 7/8/9/10. All of these newer non final fantasy RPG titles are lacking in the graphic quality department as I'm use to playing the best looking PS4 titles atm, yet in all this time of the PS4 being out we don't have a turn based JRPG that can live up to the quality of the old final fantasy games???? What is going on in the world of game making the past 18 years???? Seriously the last decent JRPG I played for console was Final Fantasy X, it's been to long, and i'm tired of waiting, and I don't care to play HD Remasters for PS4 atm I've played those games already, I want something new that does not have to relate to Final Fantasy, I'm waiting for FF7 Remake and I've waited long enough, but some other game company other than square enix needs to step up and start producing the highest quality next gen turn based JRPGs, a new fresh JRPG. Dragon Quest XI falls extremely short of the RPG I want to play and the quality that these companies can put out if they're willing to spend the time and money on developing a 9/10 or 10/10 game. Hironobu Sakaguchi needs to come back to the world of RPGs and make his own game for PS5/Next Gen Xbox.

60% of comments why ffxv not in the list. guys. ffxv is overrated. It has great visuals, i give you that but story and character development. I say mehhh. Most of its gameplay is side quests. like 20%main story then 80% side quests. Not as good as the previous ffgames.

Kyo78245 (4 months ago)
hm I dont get why FFXV wasn't on there, I'm pretty sure it had higher rating then several of those other JRPGs
ToweringFlesh (4 months ago)
Kyo78245 because it’s by far the worst final fantasy game ever made (main titled, discounting any spinoffs like Tactics, which i haven’t played unfortunately). i’ve been playing the FF series since 1990 on nintendo 8 bit, and while there have been some missteps over the years (for example: ff5 has an amazing customization system for jobs, one that hasn’t really been seen or utilized in the same way before or since that game, but the story and characters are about as cookie cutter and generic as a game can be), for the most part all of the main numbered games are highly enjoyable - the best ones being among the best games in history (ff4, ff6, ff7, ff8, ff9 for old school; ffx and ffxii for “newer” styles). final fantasy 15 definitely has a lot of fan service type moments - it was nice to see chocobos you could ride again (as opposed to the mere “appearance” of one in ff13, if you could even call that little thing a chocobo) - and from chapters 1-7 the game has a pretty decent story, even if the all-male “guy trip” cast is a retarded idea imo (i know some people like the cast, and i am not meaning to disregard their opinions; to each their own), but from chapter 8 onward it turns into a total obscene shitshow, and serves as a fine example of effortless, awful, asinine, and incomplete story telling. the fact that the only way to possibly understand wtf is going on and what the characters are referring to when speaking about the events that took place prior to the start of the game is to watch the Kingslaive movie just goes to show how rushed and incomplete the game was upon release. the first nine games in the series really didn’t differ much from one another insofar as gameplay, yet the storytelling and narrative is what made final fantasy a perennial powerhouse in the realm of jrpgs. characters you could love and empathize with, whom you could relate to and/or become emotionally invested. the turn based gameplay was secondary to that. it was all about great storytelling (again, not EVERY one of those nine games had the best story ever, but even the ones like ff3 and ff5 - which had the weakest casts and plots - still managed to provide a complete narrative and tale). the same cannot be said of ff15. the devs either rushed the release to meet the “final” deadline date and offered an incomplete game storywise, or they intentionally released it that way knowing they could offer a “season pass” for more money, thus offering “new” content to provide a more comprehensive and acceptable story. whether it was a matter of incompetence due to rushing for a deadline, or a money grab in season pass, the game is a massive pile of garbage and completely unacceptable from a company that was always known for their groundbreaking graphics and unmatched story telling. i finished the game, the “original” incarnation of it, and it left a foul taste in my mouth. from the incomprehensible narrative (ch 8 onward), to the ease of battle against the “final” boss (seriously, has ff ever had an easier final boss than that? NO, and perhaps some enjoy easy games, but i for one would like to be challenged to beat the final enemy, not spend 4 minutes spamming the button commands that appear on screen to hold your hand through a final battle, only to then watch the clusterfuck of an ending that made ZERO sense), this was manure-grade story telling at it’s worst. sure, the gameplay was fun .....for the first 15ish hours, until one realizes the manner in which you battle the first enemy of the game is identical to how battles go for the remainder of it. no variance whatsoever. no magic (anyone who claims mixing those stupid stones to create “magic you can throw” is ignorant to how final fantasy has always worked). WHERE IS THE MAGE who can cast actual spells??? oh, right, we don’t need one since we can just buy 99x high potions and spam those to heal. WHERE IS THE BLACK MAGIC CASTER?? oh right, we don’t need one because magic isn’t needed when you can just teleport around with Noctis as your other part members moronically die (thanks awesome AI), and kill everything in sight with button mashing. suffice it to say, these are just a few of the reasons why this horrible game didn’t make the list.

Jinhunter Slay (5 months ago)
Sorry, but I don’t like Berseria. It’s gameplay and story is so convoluted that I never even finished it. The weapon system, for example, is unnecessarily complicated even by JRPG standards with so many stats, so many different status effects, and having different effects on different enemies! Why couldn’t it be more like Persona 5 which kept things simple with only 2 stats: “accuracy” and “damage”. Easy to understand, nice and simple.... ....and don’t get me started on how the game forced you to grind each and every weapon in the game to “level up” your character

Jinhunter Slay (4 months ago)
If you like Berseria over P5, that's cool. After all, everyone said that it's clearly not for newcomers or people not familiar with Tales (more specifically, Zestiria) lore. The story and lore is super confusing to me though. Here's where it gets ridiculous: I play P5 in Japanese (my third language) but Berseria in Chinese (my mother tongue)....yet, I have a easier time understanding Persona's lore than ToB, and it's in my MOTHER TONGUE!!!! In just the first couple minutes, you're greeted with a bunch of lore like Malaks...energy flow.....diseases, or curse....bla bla bla.....it's overwhelming. Then there's this shirtless dude who keeps butting into my story and I don't even know WHY, mainly just because he's some guy from the prequel which I never played! That guy interrupted *THREE* BOSS FIGHTS! xD
Yuri Ikutsuki (4 months ago)
lol it's not meant to be easy the battle system not much of an upgrade to the previous best battle sys ( but it's still playable and 'simple' enough for a newcomer to play it I'd say it keeps the battle interesting If you just play as Velvet for the whole story then I don't think it should be a problem because her burst lliterally changes her mode to every enemy's weakness she's hella OP if you want to finish the game easier also storywise and characters Berseria>>>>>>>>>P5 P5 concept is good but I feel that it lacks the good storytelling charm
Luca D?Innocenzio (5 months ago)
I was thinking to try Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA. Do I need to play all the older titles before it or is it enjoyable by itself?
ToweringFlesh (4 months ago)
Luca D?Innocenzio absolutely not! even as an avid jrpg fan of 25+ years, i had somehow never heard of (or possibly overlooked) the Ys series. picked this game up on a whim after reading a few reviews and trying the free demo (which is still available on the ps store btw), and i can honestly say it is one of the best jrpgs i’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. the main protagonist - Adol - has apparently been the main character in all of the games (excluding Ys Origins, which is set a few hundred or thousand years before Adol’s first journey, thus he is not featured in it), and while he’s been in 7 games prior to this, you need not have played any of the others to become fully engaged and engrossed in Ys VIII. i’m sure that for longtime fans of the series who have played one or more of the prior games, VIII likely has a good bit of fanfare/fan service insofar as recurring characters and references to things that have happened before the events of VIII. however, none of the games are direct sequels or continuances from one to the next beyond the fan service/references i mentioned. VIII can be played as a standalone title, and it should be played by someone like you (and myself!) - any jrpg fan will adore this game as much as i have.

How a childish game like persona 5 beats the life of ffxv and ffxiii and ffxii and ffix, final fantasy games are the behemoth of an rpg how is persona 5 beats them the game looks so childish I should let my 9 years old kid play it, it doesn't deserve that score, that score deserve for final fantasy games

Sofaris woow dude relex I love p5 so much and I didn't find what u say was true that comment was a just test of how many people replies since everytime on youtube I say something no body replies, but now I said fuck it let me say something bad about my favourite game of all time, and I have few people got the trick and noticed me 😂😂😂 p5 has a very heavy theme and a well written characters I actually related a lot to them especially the protagonist and mishima, they both have the same dark past as me I was a weak person who everyone put the blame on and make fun off but when I played this game it gave me courge and now i'm a changed person this game changed my life completely and that's why it was always going to be my favourite game of all time no game did that to me and I'm just playing ffxii now for the first time and the game is amazing with loveable characters my favourite is balthier 😍😂😂 I love him, but as much as I love ffxii it never going to beat persona 5 to me
Sofaris (5 months ago)
I dont know about this. I personally love P5 way more than Final Fantasy. I did not played to many FFs but FFX and FFXII are in my opinion not half as amazing as P5. But it does has a ähm how do I put this? It has a lot of Kids Anime vibes. It explores dark stuff like blackmale, abuse, sexual harassment, corruption, suicide and stuff like that but its not like that a Kids Anime can not be dark ore have deep themes ore well written Characters. I honestly wonder if Persona 5 ore Digimon Tamers is darker. I would say from the fell and style of it P5 is like playing a Kids Anime. I mean its not aimed fore kids. Its rated M after all but it gives this feel Animes like Digimon ore Detektive Conan/Case Closed gave me when I was a Kid. It has this whimsicalness. I personally dont found thats a bad thing. Its actually pretty awesome. I mean look at Avatar Last Airbender. Its a Kids Show and it has been prized to high haven. Most people Adults and Kids love that show to death. Now I personally love P5. Its the best game I have played to this day. And I am not the only one who loves it. But it could be that its not your cup of tea. Maybe this Video can help you finding that out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xShDf09KHJc&t=946s

john askins (6 months ago)
I know these were based on on ratings the games all got, but I couldn't see how Persona 5 is the top JRPG on the system. Some of the games on this list were not only better, but a lot better than it in my opinion. It also pales in comparison to Tokyo Xanadu Ex+ which released near the end of last year as well, but didn't have the popularity of Persona 5. These ratings are more of what is the most popular, instead of what is actually the best of the games.

+Nerd Father I played it but never finished the first dungeon, though I love turn based games, I found the game to annoying at the first dungeon. So I played it but not much at all of it.

john askins (5 months ago)
cramitycramcram yes I have played Persona 5 and after playing Tokyo Xanadu Ex+ I felt that a game like Persona 5 would have been about a million times better if set up like Tokyo Xanadu Ex+. Persona 5 felt like a chore to play through, being a fun game sure didn't seem like it was the point of the game at all. Personally I would rate Persona 5 maybe on a scale of 1 to 10 around the 4-6 range myself. Combat wasn't bad but the dungeons were a chore to play through and personally watching paint dry is about the level of fun I would say the game was, which is sad because I love turn based rpg's.

The battle system (esp. with the bosses) is what killed it for me. It's just broken, and the camera spins around so fast and at all the wrong angles, who just end up mashing buttons not knowing what the hell is going on half the time. It does have beutiful graphics, and the open world is awesome (esp. a s bad as they screwed it up on FF13 and made it too linear). The characters as OK, but you don't really end up feeling attached to any of them and their background.

What makes this game so great? somone please explain!
Luca D?Innocenzio (5 months ago)
Trust me, I am kind of a casual gamer and P5 was my first of the series...it is not complicated at all, I mean if you want to 100% complete it yes, it may be a bit, but you can really enjoy the game without getting crazy. Just pay attention to time management. If you still don't have it I highly recommend it., I spent around 250 hours on it before getting bored (finished it 3 times, still miss 8 trophies).

Sayd Monirul Islam it all depends from poins of view. I didn’t like ffXII at all, and i played every final fantasy from 1 to 10: 12 in my opinion is the first really shitty one. I liked the witcher 3 a lot

FFXV > FF1-14 The other FFs are boring, repetitive and the story is super predictable :P fight me
Edgar Quintero (24 days ago)
Hey Troll, I'll fight you since I'm bored. Sounds like you never experienced the magic the originals made at the time of their release. Also, if you promote FFXV you are promoting unfinished games hitting the market and forcing you to spend twice as much to get the complete experience. You like to be fooled? Show some respect for the classics.
Kar8eem (4 months ago)
Well, i am with you. I played all final fantasy games except 1,2, and 11. And i say i liked all of them. I bought 15 day 1 and finished the story in 2 days. Well the game is pretty good but the story is not complete. I still play 15 from time to time. I am glad that they are completing the game and still releasing dlc till now. I hope season pass 2 would be the last thing they release for the game. Plus FFXIII trilogy are great games especially FFXIII-2. That game is underrated!
Luna Alphinaud (6 months ago)
Little Anime Monster Eh, that’s your opinion ;3 I enjoyed travelling through the world and the character interactions, I enjoyed doing the secret dungeons and the different activities around the world. We both have different opinions, you might think the game is a mess but I don’t....
Little Anime Monster (6 months ago)
King Sora How can you say that any of the older games had "limitations" and then go on to say that XV's combat was any better? Like, you can use three moves and beat the entire game; heck, you can use one (circle) and call it a day. Magic is pretty much non-existent and you can't even summon at will... You can't use other characters outside of battle, even after all those updates... the game is a mess.
Luna Alphinaud (6 months ago)
eric lin I played Day One as well, I admit the game was released unfinished but if you were to replay it now you’d have way more fun. Also the FFVII remake is using the same combat system and graphics as FFXV.

World of final fantasy is SOOO underrated. Easily the best final fantasy game since FF12 back in 2006.

I loved the gameplay, but hated the cheesy dialogue with the characters. I was though really impressed by the very dark ending, that really threw me off, but it made for a really good story in the end.

azoth775 (6 months ago)
Pyra That's because FFXV isn't a JRPG. It's more like a WRPG(although it being developed by Square)which makes sense why a WRPG wouldn't make it on a JRPG list.
Pyra Wait.... Why is a Switch character here😂😂Does Rex know you're here😂😂

09 RetsamEdalb (3 months ago)
Davicito same. Well, I liked literally everything but the plot. The characters are all nice and so is the dialogue, but the ending was weird. You just learn that 2b was made to kill 9s, and they reveal this out of nowhere. Though the final fight was cool, letting you choose who to fight.

Trips, I hate ff 15 and it has nothing to do with the combat, the combat is it's only saving grace, and even that is only ok. The story is lame, the characters are even worse. It is a representation of the worst way to do open world. Get a quest to go check the onions on a guys farm, drive there for literally 5 minutes, fight one monster, drive back for another 5 minutes, get a follow up quest to go check carrots at the same farm...

It's not dying, just the FF series (which has gone downhill after FF X IMO). The Tales series, Persona series, and now the Dragon Quest series have made some of, if not the best of, their franchise on the current consoles. Square just has to get their head out of their asses, they are going down the same road Capcom did with the Resident Evil series, which is not listening to their fanbase.

Sir Galahad they're offline games/ all of em/ sword art online online is kinda like the . hack series, being an offline game telling a story of a fictional online game/ if u have any internet connection on your PS4 than u don't need ps plus to download any title off the ps store/ even the f2p doesn't require a membership- jus sux that basic full price games do 4 multiplayer/ anyway, if u wanna check em out I'd suggest getting em used online through GameStop, or gamefly/ maybe Amazon with it's next day shipping/

the first entry of best JRPG is.......an action game? do you know what is an RPG. Yes Dragon Quest 2 has some RPG element but it is no means considered as JRPG
john askins (4 days ago)
+Kristin Churchill looking at it now I was confused. I was actually thinking Dragon Quest Heroes 2, never played the originals so cant really comment. I only commented because i was thinking of Dragon Quest Heroes 2. Thanks for pointing out my confusion on this, for some reason i thought i read Heroes when i read it originally, wasnt thinking about part 2 of the mainline series.
Kristin Churchill (4 days ago)
+john askins dragon quest 2......known as dragon warrior 2 on the nes is infact a jrpg. Since your trying to be specific..... And having an epic fail.... I thought I'd help you out bud. Excuse me while I get back to dragonquest 10 online. Bye bye
jeff jackson (4 months ago)
JRPG, just means RPG games developed in Japan with anime style characters in them. They aren't all turned based, in fact most of the newer ones are action based.
john askins (6 months ago)
Aphiet Aprianto sorry but Dragon Quest 2 is considered a JRPG. It is an action JRPG, not all JRPG's are turn based. The action, turn-based, and strategy are all sub categories to JRPG. Can't think of any turn-based WRPG's though offhand, but there are WRPG's that are strategy and action based both. WRPG and JRPG are main categories where as action rpg's, strategy rpg's, and turn-based rpg's are all sub-categories.
