Those three are the only ones I know of. Best thing to do is buy a PS2 (used) for $50 and play all the PS1 and PS2 JRPGs money can buy.

SMT: imagine

final fantasy 11

final fantasy 7

oblivion has some JRPG mods for big eyes and asian textures

the old lufia and star ceans can be found (unofficialy) ported to the pc (no star ocean 3 however)

a few mmo's are jrpg's (mainly the free ones)

Playing Last Remnant now. Better than I thought it was going to be. The leader/unit battle system is a little different and takes some getting used to, plus you don't level up like typical rpgs. Again good game, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good rpg for PC.

Its actually alot better than the 360 version, go figure. :)

#15 Posted by washd123 (3418 posts) -

every single NES,SNES,GBA,PS1, and some PS2 ones

with emulators since theyre completely legal as long as you own the game

aside from that FF7,8,grandia,last remnant and theres some free ones. also aion is kinda a jrpg oh and isnt phantasy star on the pc?

Thats a misconception - the emulators themselves are legal, but ROMS and BIOS image files are not. Whether you own the original game or not.

He is correct. It's only legal for whoever owns the copyright for the ROM's. Which means the game publisher.

Taken from the official Gamespot review: http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/thelastremnant/review.html?tag=tabs;reviews

This is what I am referring to...

Those attractive environments were squandered on the Xbox 360, on which awful technical problems soiled the artistic beauty. On the PC, the frame rate remains smooth, which makes it easy to drink in the scenery and fully enjoy the bloody drama of The Last Remnant's spectacular-looking battles. Texture pop-in, a telltale sign of the Unreal 3 Engine, is still present but less conspicuous, and the loading times have been markedly improved, which keeps the pace flowing nicely.

What we lack in JRPGs we make up for in MMORPGs. Many of which are free and very much like a JRPG. I.E. Lineage Aion etc.

Um, that's also wrong. Making game and BIOS dumps for personal use is not illegal.

The illegitimate aspect is that most people obtain dumps illegally. However..you can completely legally play things like PS2 games on your PC, for example ..it's just a bunch of extra work if you want to avoid violating the law (and you actually need a PS2 to dump a BIOS image from) so most people just don't bother.

You can also check out the plethora of RPGmaker games. Some of them are pretty well done.

The Spirit Engine 2

The Spirit Engine 2 is an epic adventure that evokes the feel of ****c console RPGs whilst providing a fresh experience with an innovative real-time battle system and a compelling story.

Medea is a world with a uncertain past and an elusive future, dominated by its mysterious overlords, the inhuman Rakari. But history is beginning to unravel in the mighty state of Lereftain. Murderous cults are running unchecked through the streets, parliament is bickering, tension is building with old enemies in the west and the country's rulers seem to be losing control. Three citizens who find their paths crossing in an act of charity one dark night will find themselves burdened with the responsibility of not only defending a nation but deciding whether to save civilisation as they know it. Features

  • An innovative and engaging real-time RPG battle system which rewards tactical flair and timing. Combine your characters' unique abilities and unleash them at the right moment to overcome your foes.
  • An extensive plot spanning nine distinct chapters. Assemble your party of three from an initial choice of nine, each with their own perspective on the main events.
  • A lovingly crafted world, populated with colourful characters, drawn with detailed, old-fashioned 2D graphics and accompanied by an epic 3 hour soundtrack.
  • Helpful difficulty control. Switch to 'Easy' to enjoy all the story, or lock on 'Hard' and skip the dialogue to focus on the combat gameplay.

not really a jrpg but still good :P
