I've been playing RPGs since I got a free cartridge of Dragon Warrior for the NES with my subscription to Nintendo Power back in oh, about 1990. Some of my favorite RPGs are (Dragon Warrior, EarthBound, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy II, III, VII, and X, Suikoden, Wild Arms, Vandal Hearts, and Final Fantasy Tactics)<br><br><br><br>
I've never gotten into any computer RPGs...Diablo is supposed to be good and my best friend plays it and she loves it.<br><br><br><br>
I also played D+D and Magic: The Gathering when I was younger. I started a Dungeons and Dragons club in high school.<br><br><br><br>
I was wondering actually if anyone on VB could recommend me some good console RPGs....lately all I've been playing is old Mario games and Perfect Dark with my friends. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:">

The original Dragon Warrior roxors, so does FF7. Haven't played many video games lately so I don't have any recommendations. I stopped buying systems after SNES. Although the best racing game in the world, IMO, is Mario Kart Double Dash on the Gamecube.<br><br>

Hi Wonder,<br><br><br><br>
Yeah, I've been playing Dragon Warrior II and it really bites compared to the original. I loved FF7 when it came out....I played it again last winter and it was still just as good.<br><br><br><br>
Haven't played Mario Kart Double Dash, but Mario Kart 64 is a lot better than the SNES original.

Lunar: Silver Star was really good......I borrowed it on Sega CD from a friend a while back.<br><br><br><br>
In NYC, the Lunar games on the original Sega CD go for approx. 80 dollars. I might as well get the PSX versions.

Man from the title I thought you were talking about the RPG programming language, a dreadful, horrid language that for proprietary reasons still exists.<br><br><br><br>
That got my blood pumping.

I love RPGs.<br><br><br><br>
Final Fantasy (most of them), Dragon Warrior VIII, Lunar, Grandia II, Tales of Legendia and Symphonia, and probably others that I can't think of. I mostly play console RPGs.

MTG the computer game was excellent. You got all the 4th edition cards without having to pay ridiculous sums for it. And I got some pretty ****ing good decks.

i've played a lot of the final fantasy games, and liked most of them. and chrono trigger is one of the greatest games ever. ah.<br><br><br><br>
i don't really have the money for video games though, so i haven't played all that many RPGs haven't bought any video game in quite some time. and my friends don't let people borrow their games (and RPGs aren't really the sort of game to play with a bunch of friends) so i haven't played an RPG in awhile. so i don't have any recommendations really <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> err... vagrant story? is that considered an RPG? that game is amazing.

Elena, if it's not too much of a bother, can you tell me more about Grandia and the Tales series...?</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
Grandia is like FF, from what I can see, in that it's very different each game. They're good games.<br><br><br><br>
For the Tales series... well, Symphonia and Legendia are very addictive, have great music and battle systems, and have a system of skits and titles which are also fun. You could be walking on the world map, for example, and when you get to a point, you'll see something pop up in the corner of the screen that will let you know that there's a skit you can watch if you press a certain button. Then you can see the characters interacting.

I seriously wish, I got back on, but it's like this part of me died.<br><br>
Then my char was rejected and I didn't have the energy to apply again, so I just sit there and chat with whoever comes along.

<span style="color:#008000;">Another fan of Final Fantasy (can't wait to get/play XII!) and I enjoyed Kingdom Hearts too. I also enjoyed the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games, though I'm not sure if they technically qualify as a RPG.<br><br>
In real life, I've played D&D, Vampire, CyberPunk and WarHammer.<br><br><br><br>
I love RPG's.</span>

Kingdom Hearts? Man, I thought that was an amazing concept......but I hated the battle system. I love turn-based.<br><br><br><br>
Vampire? That's Whitewolf right? I played Hunter and I liked that a lot better than D+D
