I recently played Ni No Kuni and a little of Disgaea 4 on a Vita but decided I didn't like gaming on a Vita. However I feel like I have a JRPG itch to scratch and love the anime/art direction. I've looked online and see lots of people recommending different series and games to play but I already have a big backlog. Wondered what people advise. I have a PS3 and PS4.
These seem to be classics people recommend.
Resonance of Fate
White Knight Chronicles
I am Setsuna
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered
Child of Light
A lot of people say to try Disgaea but 1 and 2 are quite old now so was thinking of starting on 3 and getting 3, 4, D2 (Maybe triple pack on PS3) and then 5 on PS4. Some say Disgaea 3 isn't that good and to skip and D2 seems to be a sequel so perhaps just 4 and 5?
Another one is Star Ocean and the recommendation seems to be to get Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, I know theres a PS4 game too: Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
One of the more popular series is the Tales of:
Tales Of Graces F
Tales of Xillia
Tales of Xillia 2
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles
Tales of Zestiria
Finally another series is the Atelier series. Online seems to say start with the Arland trilogy (Rorana, Totori, Meruru). Should I maybe start with the Dusk series (Ayesha, Escha & Logi, Shallie) or even just jump start onto the PS4 with the Mysterious series (Sophie).
I'm tempted to go all for PS4 and jsut get Persona 5, Disgaea 5, Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book, I am Setsuna, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Tales of Zestiria and Tales of Berseria. A lot to read I know but basically looking for good JRPG's :)
