    Can anyone recommend me some RPG games? I usually like those games like Pokémon( [​IMG] ) and Dragon Quest Monsters. xD
    Edit: Also turn-based combats like FF is pretty nice too.

    You should check out the essentials list that is stickied in this forum. The Golden Sun games are definitely must plays. [​IMG]

    try fire emblem ( all 3 of em )
    but beware, fire emblem 6 is really hard and should be skipped by absolute beginners : )
    try and play fire emblem and fe the sacred stones first : D

    it is a massive srpg franchise which is huge in and outside japan. i think the series has over 12 installments so far (not sure though.)
    you should try it out, it is an absolute must!

    start with the gba versions first, because they're the easiest games hehe (except fire emblem 6, which wasn't even released outside japan because it was too hard xD)

    get it. you will love it.

    FE:POR (GC) was easy as hell but going back to FE:SS(GBA) was super easy even on the "red" difficulty (very hard i think)
    POR was easy becuse you could see the limits of multiable characters (stayed on screen Unlike on gba where you could only see one

    For quick starts I'd go with Castlevania (Play CotM first or you prolly won't like it after the other 2 XD ), Metroid, Golden Sun then check the Essentials List.
    Oh yeah Dragon Quest Caravan Heart is now fully translated and quite good [​IMG]

    Maybe you should look up a couple a couple of high quality Pokemon hacks should as Shiny Gold(well known Gold remake; unfinished but you can go all the way to Kanto), Rijon Adventures(beta but it's lookin good), and Ruby Destiny(finished w/ few bugs).
