Oh, nice of them to put the games in a bundle! You can get all 3 games for just over $40 USD! Essentially, buy two get one free.

All 3 for $40?
I guess I won't be buying Genshin Impact lootboxes this month.
Spoiler


All I need is enough time to play them all… *sigh*

Dream on. It just won't happen.
Not even if it would cure the eye cancer I get every time I see a new RPGmaker game.

Not my kind of fun these days, but this was a great move on Steams part to put them all in an easy-to-grab bundle.

Some like to rent our games for a longer period of time.

Still yeah every game is playable on Game Pass for now at least.

I'm playing Yakuza: Like a Dragon on PS4 Pro and it is a lot of fun. It directly addresses and fixes MOST of the issues I have with JRPGs, the fact that they are so childish and cutesy. I don't want to play six bobble headed, squeaky-voiced characters dressed in lingerie armor for 125 hours.

Y:LaD features a cast of middle-aged schlubs and a couple of 20-something ladies. It's hilarious. Many of the enemies are funny, too. The abilities are often crazy. The whole thing is just pure fun. And I prefer the turn based combat over the weird, old-school fighting style of the other Yakuza game I played briefly.

Not sure if I'll make it all the way to the end as it's a very lengthy game, and my patience with turn based grinding may very well wear out. But I'm really enjoying this silly, silly game.

Question: Does anyone know of any other JRPGs that aren't based on squeaky-voiced children? Cute characters are OK once in a while, but JRPGs tend to overdo it for me. I'd love to play a fantasy based JRPG with adult characters—even silly adult characters.

Suikoden comes to mind. Vagrant Story. Valkyrie Profile. These are all super old, of course.

I played about 30 hours of Y:LaD before taking a break. I was enjoying it. I enjoy all of the Yazuka games. The part I enjoyed the least was the combat. Not the system, but the fact that it's mostly super easy and boring.

I found Suikoden forgettable, but I remember Vagrant Story being pretty good. I never finished it because I didn't craft the right weapons and got stuck at some point. I'm surprised they never remastered that one.

It's annoyingly rare.

I guess Tales of Berseria technically fits (Velvet is NOT squeaky-voiced) but the adults sure do love giving life advice to the little kid they bring along. Dragon's Dogma definitely fits, though it's hard to even classify that as a JRPG. Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children is mostly adults, though the main character is a pretty young adult. (I guess that one is a KRPG, though. ;)

I play a lot of jrpg's, and I think if I had the game audio on, I also would get annoyed. I usually turn the game sound off, enable subtitles and power up my own tunes, that's worked for me the past few decades, something I'm not likely to change. Matter of fact it's kind of a game within itself, to find the perfect score to go along with a particular game. I learned long ago that what most consider music simply doesn't appeal to me, and rather than rage against it, I found an alternative.
