    Hey everyone. I'm looking for a new RPG video game to play and I would like to ask for your help in finding one. All help would be appreciated! Below are the qualities I'm looking for in a game, but it doesn't have to fit all or even most of them:

    • A JRPG is prefferred; I already know all of the Western ones
    • I prefer RPGs that let you play as a character that represents you, and ideally is customized or created by you.
    • I prefer action over turn based
    • The ability to play as a non-human character is of course preferred
    • I'm more likely to stick with newer games than older ones for some reason
    Again, any help would be appreciated. Thank you :evilsmile:

    maybe you could list what western ones you've played? to give us an idea for what to recommend/not recommend if you've played them already? :v (although if you want rpgs BioWare makes some not-bad ones, i.e. Mass Effect and Dragon Age although you're limited to playing as a human in all of Mass Effect and Dragon Age 2.)

    For whatever reason Mass Effect never really grabbed my interest. Here's a list of all of the RPGs I've played and enjoyed that come to mind:
    • All of the modern Elder Scrolls games
    • All of the modern Fallout games
    • Dragon Age 1 and 3
    • Persona 4
    • All of the Knights of the Old Republic games (including the MMORPG)
    • Final Fantasy X and XIV
    • Fire Emblem Awakening and Fates
    • Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
    • Chrono Trigger
    • Xenoblade Chronicles X (though the gameplay is seriously frustrating)
    • All of the Fable games
    • Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
    • Pokemon (all of it)
    • Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2
    There are more but I imagine that should give you a good idea :evilsmile:

    well there's always the plethora of kingdom hearts games--if you want to sit down and invest yourself in that convoluted mess. hmm there's one game, I guess it would be considered an "rpg" it's called Starbound (it's available on Steam) where you crash land on an unknown planet and you have to find resources and there's a lot of exploration options. You also get to make a character and they have a bunch of different species like bird people, robots, star people, are the first few that come to mind....
    Sunless Sea is another one, although I know less about it, but it's a marine-time based game where you control a boat and go exploring eldritch like horrors more or less.

    You could try Fire Emblem: The sacred Stone. It's my favorite of this series. But it's insanely hard.

    If you want something story-driven and from japan, try Earthbound. It's an insanely good game series. But it's super retro.

    I know a few more really good game that aren't strictly rpg but are really good:

    -Ico
    -Enslaved
    -Opoona
    -Deus Ex Human Revolution

    Alas, a lot of those are old enough that I'm not sure I'll be able to get into them, but I'll give them a try. I've never even heard of Opoona.

    The only Fire Emblem games I can play are three that don't have permadeath (the two 3DS ones and a DS one that only came out in Japan but has been translated by fans). Speaking of Fire Emblem, the JRPG I'm playing now is Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.
