Does anyone have any game recommendations? As you may be able to guess, I'm a fan of FF, KH, and recently became interested in the Tales series. However, my interest in games is severely limited by the fact I can't stand FPS games. It frustrates me to no end. Also, I can't play any M-rated games, due to a deal with my parents, until I'm 17 that is. So if you could give me any ideas, please post them. Thanks in advance.

If you can list your consoles, I could give you plenty of recommendations. It's obvious you have a PS3, so I can easily recommend Valkyria Chronicles. It's my #2 favorite game of all time. It's a turn based strategy JRPG that has you moving units across a field one at a time in 3rd person. Has a fantastic story and beautiful art style.

As you enjoy Tales series, I'd recommend Ni No Kuni. Has a similar open field battle system to Tales games. Again, great art style as it was done in part by Studio Ghibli.

If you like grid style JRPGs, Disgaea 3 and 4 are great to. 3 is a bit more funny dialog and 4 has new features and better visuals. They have A LOT of content and customization within them, but luckily you can choose how far you go into it.

I also recommend Valkyria Chronicles, along with Nier ( an action RPG)

*poke* he said no M rated games Tongue Nier is definitely M hehe..

Another great JRPG from the game style of Tales is Eternal Sonata. Was a good game, although the blocking mechanic was a bit rough in battle.

Batman Arkham games, Prince of Persia, and Rune Factory would fit. The no M rated games really narrows down my collection... Just get a friend over 18 to go with you. Tongue That's what used to do.

If you can, try PSN/XBLA games like Limbo, Bastion, Thomas was Alone, Guacameelee, Braid, and many other awesome indie games.
EDIT: If you haven't, and since your a JRPG fan, play the PSP Persona games.

Hmm, they all sound interesting, although I'm suspicious of Ni No Kuni. As for my consoles, I have a PSP and PS3 (obviously). I've heard of a lot of positive things about Disgaea; I played and enjoyed Eternal Sonata (on my 3rd playthrough). Thanks for the recommendations.

For PSP you should try Legend of Heroes: Tears of Vermillion. It was the first RPG I owned so I may be "remembering" it being better that how it really was. lol Also, Megaman Powered Up and any thing FF on PSP. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is very good, but not as forgiving as the newer ones.

With that said, if you havn't yet, check out Crisis Core. It's a Kingdom Hearts like Final Fantasy game. Also, Valkyria Chronicles 2 of course. Terrible story, but great gameplay.
