I'm pretty fond of X, but IV is probably my favorite. I hate VII; I can understand why people like it, but it's not my thing. I think Cloud and Sephiroth, in particular, really turned me off to the experience. By the time I played VII it had already exploded into some phenomenon, so I thought it was kind of overrated at the time. I really appreciated them killing Aerith, though. I'm sure that sounds terrible, but as someone who is really tired of every goddamn game turning into a love story I was glad she died.

9 is my favorite of all time.

Yeah, I cna;t really agree with this. I'm currently playing through it and I love the characters, but the plot isn't the best IMO.

I dunno, I really like VIII and VI and X. VII and and IX are both great though.

wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut?

Definitely missing out. I mean basically everything past X is crap, but I'm surprised you haven't played the three between that.

"Which FF game do you like best?"

Oh how these things go astray.

Anyways, I prefer Crystal Chronicles myself, as far as FF games go. Although it's not a PS2 game so it doesn't really matter to this thread at all.

I'd suggest the Onimusha series. All of them are pretty good. My personal favorite is part 2. Though 4 is a little weak. ^_^

9 is my favorite of all time.

It was pretty good.

FFXII is without a doubt my favorite in the series. X/X-2 come pretty close.
I loved IV and VIII. Haven't played V/VI.

I mean basically everything past X is crap,

I have to strongly disagree there.
I haven't finished XIII, but I love it so far.

And apparently XII was pretty great...

I really tend to never give a damn about what Erif says when he claims a game is "crappy," because he says that about a lot of fantastic games.

Haven't played XI, but XIII is mediocre at best, XII is alright, and judging from the reviews of XIV, that's probably bad as well.

And ew, X-2 is just a joke. =|

Shadow Hearts: Covenant


This I agree with, especially going with the other RPGs the topic creator seems to be checking out for sure. The Shadow Hearts series, to expound a little, is three games forming a trilogy, although the last one is rather loosely connected to the second. Covenant is the second title and though it does follow the first fairly closely, (the first simply being titled "Shadow Hearts") it is perfectly fine to jump in to the second (the important connects between the games are quickly capped by the MC's narration in-game asides). What I especially like is the adjustments made to the series' unique mechanic, the Judgment Ring, that the second game made, but that's not worth detailing except to say that the second game has some less frustrating moments in which that Ring is used (darn London Rats...). It also feels a lot like a FF-style game with its flow, characters and classic turn-oriented combat. Any title therein is worth a look-see in my humblest opinion. If you want a more dark tone however, game 1 is best to scope out. If you can take a good degree of ham and fanservice and find such appealing, the 3rd title (From the New World) is good as a stand-alone. Or get all three, haha.

I personally own about 80% of the other recommended choices, so otherwise I suggest possibly the Ar Tonelico series. Two of its titles are on the PS2 and I thoroughly enjoyed the first. Pretty straight-forward dungeon crawling, the extra meat of the game comes with the almost visual novel-like method of bonding with most of your female allies. That in turn is what gives them more advanced magic based on songs (and the actual songs are pretty darn pretty, if I say so myself). I wish it were somewhat longer but it does have some re-playability, as there are alternate endings to the game.

Lastly, for a very classic take, you may want to try Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits. Even if you're not familiar with the series or much into strategy RPGs, this is pretty good. I say strategy, because you can move characters across maps in battle, but the game tends to be more simple-turn based; actions are carried out instantly as long as you can target something in range. Only complaint is its rather short, but pretty satisfying in that it doesn't take that much grinding to get through and I find there's a likable character for most anyone to choose from (I especially like one of the optional recruits, though mostly because they are voiced by Kath Soucie).

I suggest taking every game, controller, accessory, and your system and trade it in towards a ps3 or 360...

If not that then legend of mama is great, chrono cross is also... Psx ftw.

oh my heart, if you wanna consider ps1 party-based rpgs, you're in for some good times. Legend of mana is alright, but not the classic style of party-based rpg. Legend of Dragoon was decent, but it does get ripped on a lot. Chrono Cross was fucking amazing. Breath of Fire 3, sweet jesus god and baby jesus

also for some reason thought i was in the party-based rpg topic, so i limited myself there.

add front mission 3 to that list. and final fantasy tactics.
