    You should try Dragon Quest V regardless of the random battles. The game has a nice narrative, if you care about that.

    Also, I recommend Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. No random battles, and features a unique battle system.

    thanks haflore.

    @Mr. Positive ive played it. its one of the reasons why i hate random battles. the game is good story wise, dont get me wrong.
    i just really dont like the idea of random battles anymore,it just really seems outdated because of what games are like now.
    im just saying.

    can anyone else list some no random battle RPG's

    Agreed, in the olden days it was because of technical limitations, but now designers get away with it because it's what we're used to... sort of like how there's no actual technical limitation preventing one country's DVDs/PS2/whatever games from playing on another country's system, they're just getting away with the lockout because people are traditionally used to it.

    Also agreed, for the most part. Some games actually benefit from it and wouldn't feel quite right without them, such as Nostalgia and FFIV(rate's too high on this one).

    Dragon Quest IX is one that has no Random Battles but wait for the english version if you aren't intending on playing Japanese versions
