    Making a SD card full of games for my 11 yo cousin who hasn't played any RPGs before and is pretty new to videogames in general. So I have

    Chrono Trigger= 84mb
    FFIV= 123mb
    FFXII= 106mb

    Is it better to remove FFIV and FFXII in order to have Suikoden Tierkreis?

    Suikoden Tierkreis= 224mb

    the cards full so i would have to delete some games in order to add it

    No, keep them.
    Suikoden Tierkreis pales in comparison to either of those.

    don't. Suikoden Tierkreis is not worth it.

    If you're trying to give him RPGs, remove the FFXII. The DS version isn't very RPG-like.

    So close and yet so far away.
    Depends what she wants. I think ST is really cool, however since it's better to focus on one game anyway, just go with what you think, and then later on you can remove what she doesn't want and add other ones. [​IMG]

    I own all the games you mentioned, and I love them all, so It doesn’t really matter.

    CT is by far the best. I still might lean towards something a little simpler. FF Mystic quest for the SNES I find is a good entry RPG.

    I found that Suikoden was pretty average, so I'd skip that one IMHO.

    FFXII is more of a RTS than a RPG.

    You also can't go wrong with Pokemon, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn or any of the Mario & Luigi games as good introductory RPGs.

    Mario and Luigi Partners in Time and Bowser's Inside Story is perfect.

    Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy... 3? [I think IV is too wrong, either that or it's vice versa], DQIX....

    Yeah, I would go with Dragon Quest instead of FFXII, although I liked it, it's more of a RTS than RPG.

    For something simple DQ IV or V, but DQ IX is the shit! [​IMG]

    Remove FF4, I honestly don't see her finishing it. CT is a fantastic game, and a great introductory rpg. She'll be able to experience the story with little to no grinding.

    CT is a definite keeper. It's a little aged, but it's still a solid game with a decent story.

    Throw out both FF's. I would never introduce someone to a FF game on purpose to be honest.
    Replace with \/

    Suikoden Tierkreis is very easy, and more story driven then anything. It has a neat little story, and the voice acting is pretty good, though people bitch and moan about the main characters talking too fast...despite him SUPPOSED to be talking that fast.

    Another good one is Sands of Destruction. I found it to be a pretty fun little game, despite the combat system collapsing in on itself and making the last 30% of the game INCREDIBLY easy. Story ain't bad.

    Both Mario and Luigi games are good too. Not too hard, entertaining story as usual.


    If you'd like to scare her away from RPGs you could try SMT: Devil Survivor [​IMG]
    It's an advanced RPG.

    As the father of a 13 year old girl, I would go with Chrono Trigger over the others. Marle is a key selling point as far as girls go, and the game isn't too complex to learn or follow. I would also add DQIX...my daughter loves the ability to customize her (female) character (she also loves the cute visual style of the characters/monsters) and the DQ series is easily accessible for newcomers to the genre.

    IMO ct will be the best experience for someone new to rpg, epic story, a good battle system and nice characters. if she likes the genre after that, she will come back to play ct a few more times.

    I love Suikoden Tierkreis. Can't really explain why, other than that the game has so much charm and beauty, and the combat system is pretty fun as well.

    That's all I really have to say though. ...Though she might find the DQ games good. DQ VI coming soon as well, so...yeah.

    Probably being lazy.
    You haven't played Chrono Trigger!?

    Where the heck have you been, under a rock.

    CT is like the best RPG in existance, sure it's one big time paradox, but back in it's time it was one, if not the best RPG in existence! You must play it!
