Action rpg ps2 game recommendation

Postby FlarePhoenix » Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:31 am

So anywho, I finally got my computer parts to work and emulate GameCube and ps2 games and (excluding final fantasy and kh, star ocean) I was wondering if anyone knows any good ones/series for me to play. Also psp too if any. Exnay on gc as I already got plenty for those.

Baldur´s Gate Dark Alliance 1&2
Fallout Brotherhood of Steel (Bad Fallout Game, decent enough A-RPG)
Both of the Gauntlet Games, forgot the exact names for them.

Try out the Wild Arms series. I liked it although it may fall more towards the rpg than action side of things and there were a few made for the PS1 and PS2.

SHINING FORCE NEO / Shining Force EXA - Awesome Hack n slash RPG's (120hours+ in each game!)

Baldur's Gate - Dark Alliance 1 & 2

Champions of Norrath is fantastic but can crash like a pissed up driver.... Make sure you SAVE before going to new areas :) Emulation wise... May take some fiddling...

EDIT

GENJI - There are 2 releases of this, DVD5 rip and DVD9. Get the DVD9 version

Also I support ANY "Ys." Game ANY system. Napishtim is a great RPG, bloody hard work in caves

What, I didn't know shining force had hack and slash versions, well except shining soul for gba. Also I have played a sh!t ton of ys, in fact 1-6 and will be playing the remakes origin and #3(on 7 currently). Great game, great music, super evil difficulty, not even kidding, you can die in one second if you ain't careful.

Also thanks everyone. I don't think I can get them all, but I will try.

I feel like some people would rather "socially network" and potentially get the wrong answer slowly, rather than just use google and get the right answer immediately.

I already have the list, I'm just wanting people's opinions on what their prefer to play. Researching every game limits my small download window time and I don't want to waste any. Besides my current games list I still have to get via 4+gb is quite long and slow getting them. 2 to 3 if I'm lucky a day. Can't get them all, can't play them all, but willing to try.

These are some games that I loved on the PS2:

Onimusha
Drakenguard
Monster Hunter (there's some on the PSP too)
Devil May Cry
All Tales games

Not really action RPG, but good nonetheless
Persona 3 and 4
Shadow Hearts
Dark Cloud

^^ Onimusha are AWESOME
Only thing is, Onimusha, Onimusha:Warlords, Onimusha 2, all are Digital Only Controls... Takes some getting used to. Onimusha 3 and 4 (Dawn of Dreams) control using Analogue sticks.
Oni 4 is insane. All these games I own on UK Originals.

DMC with me are hit n miss. Good Games, Weird as fek storylines.... Nothing really makes any sense...

Good series, none the less...

Thanks everyone, but one question, since nobody suggested dot hack series, is it that bad and I should avoid or get them.

Someone did suggest .Hack, which is why I didn't recommend it again.

I didn't play the first few, but I played .Hack// GU. Went through all three and I enjoyed the story, I'd say combat and dungeon exploration is so-so. The story more than made it up for me though.

There's one more game that I forgot to mention, Baroque. It's little known, but it's pretty fun. You can think of it as a sort of Dark Souls gameplay meets Persona's dungeon exploration.

.Hack was always too expensive so I never played it.
