    Default PS2 RPGs.

    I know this should probably be in the single player part of the forums but I feel it won't get much attention there.

    I'm on a "mission" to play all the PS2 RPGs I missed out on that weren't so "main stream".

    I'm currently playing through Dark Cloud, then will eventually move on to the Persona series, and Rogue Galaxy.

    Could you guys name some of the good PS2 RPGs out thar?

    I played Boulder's Gate.

    To me, main stream is like the popularity of Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy.

    Hmm, Breath of Fire perhaps? Also, Dark Cloud 2 is quite good, you should play it as well.

    Edit: Also check out this page http://www.gamespot.com/games.html?p...s&sortdir=asc# Might be helpful Enjoy.

    I knew someone would say that...Xenosaga 2 was pretty bad, yeah.

    Hey, sorry Jakuza for stealing your thread for a second, but are there any RPG's that incorporate a class changing system? (I think the only one I mentioned was AI3 and I've already beaten that) for the Ps2 of course, I don't really feel like making another thread. ;/

    White Knight Chronicles allows you to explore multiple classes, if that's what you are referring to.

    Alas... I played and beaten it in 18 hours. Biggest RPG let down of 10. But I have extremely high hopes for WK2 which pretty much SHOULD be WK1 (Wk1 ends at the biggest climatic scene ever...not much of an ending more like a huge middle-point scene that always occurs in RPG's)

    But thanks again. I won't steal any more of YOUR thread! xD

    someone mentioned DOTHACK, you should definitely give it a try. Depending on if the story catches your interest you will have a blast. It's a series spanning 7 discs. It can be extremely long if you're a completionist like myself. They also have a final .hack coming out on PSP which I am patiently waiting for.

    haha, almost every game mentioned here seems pretty darn mainstream to me... maybe I'm just a nerd!

    No one seems to have mentioned Radiata Stories, that's a really good one! By Squeenix, but still rather unknown by a lot of people it seems.

    Also, if you like Baulder's Gate: Dark Alliance, there's Champions of Norrath 1 and 2, X-Men Legends 1 and 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2. All very similar games and all very fun, in my opinion.

    There's a massive amount of fantastic RPGs for PS1 as well--playable on PS2. SaGa Frontier 2, Alundra, Wild Arms, Thousand Arms, Valkyrie Profile, Legend of Mana, Breath of Fire III (BY FAR THE BEST BOF OF THEM ALL in my opinion!), Grandia, Dragon Quest 7, Vandal Hearts, Vagrant Story and many many more, as well as sequels~

    Good luck! I may reply again with more when I feel like looking up/remembering more :3

    Atelier can be a frustrating series. It is a lot of back and forth travelling and it is mostly just alchemy. You collect things and you create things and you travel back and forth over the same maps.....I regretted getting into the Atelier series.

    TC already said after Dark Cloud he would move onto Persona.

    Let's see...NIS games are pretty fun, but can draw on for a long time, so they can easily gtet boring. I seriously recommend La Pucelle though. It's released by Mastiff instead of NIS, but it is(to me) SOOOO much more fun than Disgaea.

    There are a TON of non-"mainstream" ps2 rpgs out there. Though, what kind of RPGs are you looking for? Turn based, strategy, action?

    Fix'd.
    Also, for the ps1, though I never got around to the PS2 version, though I heard it wasn't that great...
    GAWD! I loved that game Vaan, Noa, and that Monk Guy. So much fun =).
    Though, that first, "RUN LIKE HELL" sequence sort of broke me from the game for about a year before I got up the courage to try it again.
    It also had a story that was quite 'weird', but didn't seem to get super censored. Especially surprising because it was E.(or was it T...?)
