Now that we're near the end of this generation and SE has probably released all their major JRPG titles that they will (unless Babylon's Fall get released soon) what was your favorite? For me its a hard choice between DQXI and FFVIIR but mainly for nostalgic reasons i'll go with FFVII, how about you?

Remake was just too good, but I can’t deny DQ or Nier were top notch.

 

I think all of them are really good overall, and encourage people to play them, I only wish F15 had the combat Remake has.

I did not vote Nier just because I can't see it as a fair and square JRPG. The one and only classic, genre-defining JRPG in the list is DQXI...But again, it's just a question of semantics.

 

Babbling about what is a JRPG and what is not I suddenly remembered I still need to play DLCs from FFXV, KH3 and Nier, but I don't think it would change my mind.

Definitely Dragon Quest XI. I'm kinda bummed i didn't play the 'S' edition as it seemed like all the changes + added content would make for an even better experience. Not sure if those are available on ps4 now, but last time i checked they weren't.

For this list FF7 remake so far.

 

I enjoyed Nier Automata but was happy when I got it platinum. For FF7 I was kinda bumped it was already over.

 

DQ11 just meh. I enjoyed the ride but already forgot half the names of the characters :P

FF7 remake is great game made me want to buy the 2nd game immediately. 

DQXI is good a DQ game they did not change much stick with what made it great. 

 

But Nier Automata made me feel something in a game that I can't explain heck I did not kill the robots in the game if they're not attacking me. After all this year I can still remember the game vividly.

I would have voted for the VII remake but the last 3 chapters made the game go from a 10/10 to a 6/10 for me. So instead XV gets my vote! I would have probably voted for XIV had it been included. While A Realm Reborn and Heavensward were last gen, Stormblood and Shadowbringers are definitely this gen.

Voted for the Remake simply because I haven't played Nier, DQ XI or KH3... however all three games are in my backlog to play. :) 

 

So in the race between the Remake vs XV... well. I mean, come on. No competition really.

Nier is fantastic but it's not really a JRPG, is it? Nor is it really a Square-Enix game since they just published it, it has Platinum Games written all over it, really, whereas the rest were developed in-house.

I played and platinumed 4 of these games, the one I have not played is Kingdom Hearts.

 

FF7 Remake is in a league of it's own in my opnion, so much better than any of the other games.

FFXIV isn't even active/supported on PS3 anymore, is it? xD  Dunno how last gen it is when you can't even play it there anymore, and most of the content came this gen.  I'll vote for that just because it's by far my favorite and it's kinda silly to exclude it.

 

Second would be FFXV.  Where FFVII Remake is probably a better built game, FFXV is a (mostly) complete experience and not 1/16th of the story.  And while I was initially impressed with the combat in FFVII Remake, the further I get, the more I realize it inherited a lot of FFXV's sloppiness in a more complicated/frustrating package.

 

EDIT: And the Pitioss Ruins post-game is more interesting and creative than anything FFVII Remake could do by a mile.  Took FFXV from "pretty good" to "masterpiece" for me. :D

I mean, it's Dragon Quest 11 vs hack 'n' slashes with levels, so by this poll and question DQ should be uncontested.

Nier Automata and Dragon Quest XI by a significant distance. DQXI gets my vote.

I actually liked every game here, except for the FFVII Remake (only because I haven't played it). But my vote goes to NieR. That game is something else, and just continues to evolve until the end. And then the end itself. Also, really too many hung up on turn based equating to JRPG. Even Final Fantasy has changed from that style. Is it not a JRPG series now? Tales of and Star Ocean also don't have turn based gameplay, and are long running JRPG series.

All the ones I've played are tied for second place.
