Persona, as said. Either one.

Funny how you picked the FES opening, it's so mediocre. :/

But yeah, you should definitely consider Persona 3 and 4 as top priority. They're both incredibly good, and you don't need to play one in order to play the other. I would recommend playing 3 first, however. I personally think 4 is superior, but if you start with it first, like me, you may not fully enjoy playing through 3. I know many here would argue differently, but that's the way I see it. If you do decide to play 3, get Persona 3: FES. It's the same game, but with a lot of additional content and a cool sidestory after the initial storyline.

The Megami Tensei series is great, and another game you might want to look into is Digital Devil Saga (not Story). Gameplay is similar to that of the Persona, yet the backdrop, plot, and just about everything else are unique. I actually know people who prefer the Digital Devil Series over Persona, but I believe you should start with Persona. If you like it, this is a good game to look into.

I believe the only NA Tales games for the PS2 are Legendia and Abyss. Don't get Legendia. I'm currently on my first playthrough of Abyss myself, and if you're a fan of the series, don't hesitate. If you haven't played a Tales game before, Abyss may be a bit hard to appreciate, and Symphonia for the Gamecube may be a better option, or Vesperia for the 360, or Phantasia (which is old, and was only released for the GBA is NA, but you can easily find a mod for the SNES or PSX version). Not like Abyss is bad or anything, I actually find it to be unique in terms of plot and characters. But the others a listed are easier to get into.

Odin's Sphere is one of the best RPGs for the PS2. Made by Vanillaware (the ones that gave us Muramasa and Grimgrimoire), it's a 2D side-scroller with a focus on alchemy, and you control five characters whose independent storylines overlap over time. Honestly is one of the best RPGs out there IMO, so totally consider it.

I can list a whole bunch: Okami, Xenosaga, Kingdom Hearts, Valkyrie Profile 2, Dragon Quest, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, Dark Cloud, Wild Arms 5, Ico... the list goes on. You want PSOne games, too?

i has shin megami tensei nocturne, and if you can find it for a decent price it's also a great rpg.

Kingdom Hearts II. No I'm not a fanfag, but its still a satisfying game, unlike kingdom hearts: Re: Fw: Chain of 3D/4815 Days By Sleep

I loved 358/2 Days. I've heard II is the best, but all I could get at the time was Re:Chain of Memories. :/

Gonna have to start ordering some shit.
Is it better to buy games from eBay or order right from Gamestop? I ususally just go out and buy shit, so I'm not familiar with online game purchasing.

So right now what I'm planning to get (in order):
Final Fantasy XII
Persona 3/4
Okami
Kingdom Hearts II

Amazon. Most of these games are twenty or less. I don't shop eBay, but that works too.

Again, you want PSOne games? :/

Nope. I've got all I could want for my PSone.

Yosh, I can concur with most of your list.
However, say what you will, but I'm not particularly fond of FFVII. :/

This. Plus Xenogears, FFVI (I'm ashamed of you, Yosh), Parasite Eve, Wild Arms, and Vagrant Story.

fuck, forgot xenogears. i have my copy, still in excellent condition. original, not greatest hits. dunno if there is a greatest hits version actually.

aaaand ffvi is available on othe rplatforms and stuff, easily emulated. i have ffanthology for ps1, which has 6 and 5, and imo 5's better. i think 4 beats em both though maybe.

i'm going by american numbering, myself. i think i might still like 5 better than 4. 5 being the one with a changeable job system. 4 being the one with cecil and kain. 6 being the one with locke and espers etc.

I've never played 5. 4 is easily in my top 3, with probably 1 and 6 accompanying it.

I think the golden age of Final Fantasy was IV-X, IMO. I, II, and III started the series off, but I wouldn't consider them greats. IV and V were amazing but they really just paved a path for the next five games.

I don't understand why. The only reason I can think of is for nostalgia purposes, because it's totally inferior to the later games.
