I'm 13 hours into Tales of the Abyss now. Really glad I gave this game a second chance. Thanks @DiamondDave

So I stopped my play through of Phantasy Star 3 after the first generation and decide to jump into PS4. This game is light years ahead of the rest of the series... Better writing/characters, battle systems more fluid, cutscenes portraits are a nice touch yes

Skipping PS3 is the right move, it's just bad.

I will say though, PS4 didn't impress me very much. It feels a bit generic and straightforward, so I'd take both 1 & 2 over it.

Phantasy Star 3 seemed cool, in theory. While PS4 isn't the caliber of some of the SNES RPGs, I think it's the best RPG Genesis has to offer

I think PSIV is a cut above most SNES RPGs. Not all, but most.

I was out sick today and was able to get past the further point I had been in Persona 3. In the next couple weeks I am having Neck Surgery so I will have a lot of down time. Hopefully I can finish it.

I'm not a big fan of anime or JRPGs but I bought Persona 5 from the last Best Buy sale due to the hype from all of my friends...And I love it! 30 hours in and it doesn't even feel like it. The game is so chill and relaxing (especially the soundtrack), and the story definitely pulls you in.

What are other games like this on the PS4?

Hearts R plays very basic, but it pretty fun.

It might be the next Vita RPG I play. I should finish Trails first, though. I left it half way. Trying to get everything towards the plat burned me out.

Hearts R was definitely a fun one.

Platting JRPGs, yeah no thanks.

I need to finish TX+ and P3 FES before Caligula Effect.

I would recommend Ys VIII it'a a fun action RPG. Or Odin Sphere. a 2D platformer RPG. Odin Sphere is amazing with amazing story. Feels more like a platformer with a great story than an RPG. Give it a try!

Tokyo Xanadu doesn't look too much like Persona 5...at least from the quick video I saw. It looks more action/hack and slash kind of game, no?

I'm honestly tempted to get a Vita just for P4 since I've been hearing great things about that one too.
