    I'm going to buy a PS3 in a few days, and I would like recommendations on RPGs for the console:

    -Preferably JRPGs, unless a you know a good WRPG I must play.
    -Any game you mention must be released in NA, not Europe or Japanese games because I can't import (and will not pirate).

    GBATemp, what are your favorite ps3 rpgs?

    Valkyria Chronicles

    Demon's Souls
    Record of Agarest War Zero
    Eternal Sonata
    Resonance of Fate
    Nier


    I'm sure there's more but I can't think of 'em off the top of my head.
    Valkyria Chronicles is the PS3's best RPG.
    Demon's Souls you probably know already, but it's fantastic and fun as hell.
    Eternal Sonata is new and improved from the 360 version...and is very charming.
    Resonance of Fate is odd, hilarious and hard as hell. But also very fun
    Nier has a fantastic story, the best videogame soundtrack i've ever heard, and the gameplay is pretty fun too (not amazingly difficult though)


    Oh you could also play FFXIII, it's pretty. Combat is alright, story is alright. It's mostly just very gorgeous looking if you can play it in HD.

    EDIT: and keep an eye out for Tales of Graces. I think it was coming around january or something. No set date for Tales of Xillia...but they seemed pretty inclined, for once, to bring it over. So here's hoping.

    Valkyria Chronicles
    Dragon Age: Origins
    Demon's Souls

    These are absolutely must-haves. especially Valkyria Chronicles; the game is excellent with an excellent soundtrack and story. Heck, It should be cheap as hell by now too

    Nier, without any doubt my best RPG experience on PS3. You have to finish it 4 times to see how deep the story is.
    And if you're a gamer, you'll notice a lot of cross reference (Resident Evil, Ico, etc...)

    But be carefull : Nier is not a beautifull game... Actually it's quite ugly... Could have been made on PS2...

    Valkyria Chronicles
    Eternal Sonata
    Tales of Vesperia (if your ps3 has cfw).

    Unfortunately, none of the NG consoles have worthwhile jrpgs (especially the ps3), you're better off getting a DS for jrpgs.
