I'm in the mood for a good RPG and I'm wondering if any of you guys can suggest any. I have Oblivion (for 360) and I know Final Fantasy XIII is coming eventually (2010?), I just need some suggestions from people who have actually played some on the PS3 (new PS3 owner).

at the moment PS3 is a bit thin on RPGs, there are however plenty of PS2 RPGs which should work (depending on your console version) i.e. FFX, FFXII, Unlimited Saga, Dawn of Mana theres a bunch and I can't be bothered to think of them off the top of my head.

Folklore
Enchanted Arms is okay if you want a traditional RPG.

Eternal Sonata
Valkyrie Of The Battlefield
Disgaea 3
are all due this summer, that'll beef up the line up for sure.

The ps3 is in a rpg drought right now, but alot of good ones will be coming starting this summer.

It takes a little bit longer to develop and come out with RPG's, so it there arent very many out right now. Soon the RPG's will come and hopefully the FPS will die down again... My god do it hate FPS now.

wild arms...you can download it on the ps store...lol but it really is the best one on there!

if you want an rpg and you're looking to play it on next gen, especially ps3, you're screwed. shooters are the fad now ever since halo, and all they make now are lame repetitive shooters. i think some rpgs will start coming out in a yr or two, but as long as people keep buying shooters they wont make anything else. im boycotting them ever since resistace tho, thats y i only have like 3 games. if you want an rpg right now the only thing there is folklore. yea next gen is over rated and boring so far imo. just go back to playing ur ps2 like me and maybe it a yr or two things will pick up.

FolkLore and Oblivion are really the only two out right now i think (and Enchanted Arms).

Actually when I played Folklore though it was a lot of fun.

PS2 has the best RPGs. Try Dragon Quest VIII and Persona 3.

Sorry...I must be dealing with kids and probably most wernt born in the 80's, but never the less if Im thinking correctly "RPG" means role playing games? And with the help of some Hallucinogens she would love to role play....hince the "the hitcherhiker" role playing game was my favorite...wow didnt think I'd have to explain that....you guys need to get out more.ArcticCat500

Wow... What a useless and completely unrelated reference to the context of the original question, let alone these forums. It seems YOU sir are the one that needs to get out more.

What lacks in spelling, makes up for in sentence structure and punctuation. I can only assume you had to look it up. Fix your grammar, then look me up.

Folklore would be your best choice right now, but later this year Borderlands, FFXIII and versus, and Fallout3 will all grace the ps3.

I'm partial to the FF series so eventually I was going to get one. Lost Odyssey and Mass Effect are two games I'm already planning on buying but just asking if there are any exclusive PS3 games that are worth at least a look.

Fix your grammer? Thats funny, sentence structure and punctuation, Im still lol. Listen, tell daddy he can tuck you in now Find fault with my grammer and I'll fix it. I think you're the one who needs to "look it up". I studied Okinawan kobudō in Japan for 11 years while in the USMC and became very familiar with Japanese culture & poetry. I beleive I know what a Haiku is and how to spell it TYVM.

ArcticCat500

Wow man, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings by pointing out your ridiculous reference earlier in the postings.

That said, take another look at your post quoted above and think about what you're trying to put out there. You knew enough to use the proper ō for "Kobudō" (which is normally capitalized when talking about it as a proper noun) but not enough to spell "believe", or even "grammar" correctly. If you take another look at your punctuation... well..

To tell you the truth, this really isn't worth it. Whether it's your "11 years in the USMC studying in Japan" or my "11 years finding a cure for cancer while resucing baby seals", the fact is we're on an Internet forum with complete anonymity. We both need to get a life as far as the other readers are concerned.

So, I concede. You win. I'll change my signature immediately. Take care sir. :)

Doubtful that it will be delayed until 2010. I can see a delay till early-mid 09 but not 10. Most retailers still pit it as a december 08 game.

I read somewhere that FFXIII isn't coming out til 2010... is that right?

#32 Posted by ArcticCat500 (172 posts) -

LMAO..you're too funny....love that baby seal bit man. Im through here.

#36 Posted by attorihanzo (587 posts) -
Theres no "Best PS3 RPG" right now, FPS's are taking over this gen. But if your willing to wait then theres Disgaea 3, White knight, FFXIII, and there could be more. Just wait for Tokyo game show.

I doubt it but i have to wait for major game shows like E3(if their participating this year) and TGS. If we get actual in game footage of FFXIII i think it'll come out in late 08- early 09 but square tends to release their games before right before the holidays. I think all the RPGs have already been posted above so yeah.
