Are there any good JRPGs that don't have random encounters?
>>500671123Tons if you even bothered using google
>>500672227What are the best?
>>500671123No, any JRPG without random encounters is bad
>>5006711233D era Tales games. Symphonia, Abyss, and Vesperia are the three most well liked. All three are great games.
>>500671123The World Ends With You. Best encounter system out there.
>No one mentionning chrono trigger>>500672525chrono trigger
paper mario thousand year doordragon quest 11dragon quest 8(3ds)tales of symphoniatales of vesperiashin megami tensei 4final fantasy xiipersona 4persona 5idk im done theres a lot
>>500671123That requires more processing power than Plebs can afford.
>>500673701Anything I can play on an average laptop?
>>500673493Dragon Quest 7 is also excellent, it emulates extremely well on Citra especially if you increase the resolution multiplier. The story isn't the strongest of the series, but the job system is where the fun is.
>>500674131Lightning Returns? It's a very old game anon
>>500673486I second this also basically any of the modern Tales games. I recommend Vesperia
>>500671123>Are there any good JRPGsNo.
>>500671123Epic Battle Fantasy
>>500671123Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix
>>500671123Try the Tales series. Most of those games don't have random encounters. You actually see the enemies and bump into them before the battle starts.
>>500671123Play Persona 5
>>500674481>Lightning Returns? Its a very old game anon\>very old>2013You have to be 18 to post here faggot
>>500673486Gameplay sucks tho
>>500676473The absolute state of /v/
>>500676570>mash techs and heal Just cause you like watching the animations doesn't mean it's good jarpig
>>500676735>dude all you do is press buttons the game sucks.
>>500674704>Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mixwhy has no other RPG tried to copy this style? its so satisfying to play this game on critical and just hone my skills. is there any RPG with as fun combat as this?
>>500676802It does suck when there is no depth behind it whatsoever
>>500676004That's 7 years anon. 7 years is the time gap between the SNES and the gamecube I would wager most people considered SNES games old when the gamecube was out
>>500677172Name 1 game with more depth from that time
>>500676735so do you not use Limit breaks? or literally any other top level spell or combo? honestly what JRPG are you playing that doesn't have some form of game breaking mechanic or spell?
>>500677283Romancing saga. Same genre, same platform, far more depth
>>500676956dont have a DS or i would
>>500676402>FF for babies
>>500677172Did you seriously just say Chrono Trigger has no depth? Jesus christ kid seek help or neck yourself
>>500671123Xenosaga, and Its also the best JRPG ever
>>500676956Based. Level 1 Ultimate fights were a blast.
>>500677354But OP said good
>>500677231implying that the gap in hardware for the times talked about are anywhere near the same doesn't make any sense. thats like apples to oranges vs granny smith vs red delicious
>>500677172Being easy =/= no depthDumbass.
>>500677424>>500677776In terms of gameplay it doesn't at all. Brainless as fuck
>>500677549Xenosaga isn't even the best game in its own franchise let alone the best JRPG of all time
>>500676473sounds like you don't even like this kind of game
>>500677392Use the switch faggot
>>500678018>actually recommending the Switch version
>>500678018i tried the switch version when i had mine. that felt like a bad mobile game. if i get trumpbux im going to buy a DS
>>500678018>>500678143Yeah I gotta agree here. Hard pass on the Switch version. unfortunately they really screwed us on that one
>>500678018>Switch Bitch, do you even TWEWY?
>>500673486it's not strictly random i guess but chrono trigger has many mandatory battles with normal enemies as you go
>>500673493this is a good list. I'd also add these:Chrono TriggerChrono Cross (has a lot of flaws, but has great music and a lot of soul)EarthboundMother 3Bravely Default/Second (they do have random battles, but you can adjust the frequency of battles in almost every dungeon. so if you want you can completely turn off battles when you want to explore, and then crank it up to maximum frequency when you are ready to grind)
why just settle for no random encounters when you can have good gameplay and no random encounters
>>500680719Because KH isn't good gameplay?
>>500681495Not him but explain how it isn’t.
>>500681891It's just boring button mashing
>>500682170>he hasn’t played on Critical
>>500671123I know you gotta post bait to get replies on this board but for fuck's sake, anyone even slightly interested in RPGs know about mario and chrono trigger.
>>500671123Chrono trigger and lufia 2.
