Well i'm looking for a good RPG on either the NDS or GBA that kinda has the feel of a game like chrono trigger or secret of mana. Any suggestions aside from the obvious (children of mana which wasn't that good) would be great. On a side note, is Final Fantasy 3 on NDS any good? Thanks in advance

FFIII was a good game, it's a remake of an NES game so it's a very traditional turn-based RPG. Kind of hard to know which games you have played or not, but how about Golden Sun?

If you haven't played Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the GBA I highly recommend it. I thought it was much better than Partners in Time.

Edit: Summon Night - Swordcraft Story is another great GBA RPG.

So, are you looking for an ARPG or a turn-based RPG?

Really, the only decent ARPG's on the DS are Lunar Knights and Contact. And of course, Lunar Knights started with Boktai 1 and 2 on GBA.

The best turn based RPG on the DS is probably FFIII, soon to be replaced by FFIV. The (J) version is awesome and I can't even read it.

I think the best monster RPG is DQM:J by a long shot.

I guess I'm just confused what RPG sub-category you're looking for.

yep, the golden sun games for gba are a sure bet, also contact was pretty enjoyable.

and also, of course, you can always get snemulDS and play the actual games heh(CT and SoM), they run almost perfect.
