Default Recommended jRPGs thread (and other japanese PC games)

A lot of the PS2 games can be emulated on a decent PC with decent graphics card and a little effort so I think that option enables some talk. I would say that most classics are on the PS2 anyway though they are really starting to age.

I seem to recall trying Suikoden 3 with PCSX2 at one point though did not complete (already played on PS2). Its one of my favorite especially in that series. I know I've played some of my Final Fantasy games on the emulator. Also I bought Xenoblade for the Wii and played the whole thing with Dolphin as I dont own a Wii. I'd recommend Shadow Hearts 1&2, Xenosaga 1-3, Persona 3&4 and Final Fantasy games in this vane.

Alas Lost Odyssey was great but cannot be emulated and something I would recommend to Western RPG fans if they wanted something to try.

I loved the Last Remnant at the time and the PC edition actually has more content than the Xbox version though most is late game or new game+ stuff.

Disclaimer: I had a CodeBreaker for PS2 which allowed me to dump the bios of my console otherwise its legally questionable. Dolphin does not require a bios dump.
