Need advice!

Hi there, I want to get in to turn base RPGs like Final Fantasy. Do you guy know of any easy or simple ones that a person who never play a turn base RPG will be able to get in to?

Re: Need advice!

Shining Force might be something you'd enjoy. It's not the same as Final Fantasy but it is turn based and takes some strategy. Also it's a cool series of games.

Also you might wanna avoid more recent FF games since they use active turn based combat which means the enemies will attack while your deciding stuff. Some have the option to turn this off but it seems to be the trend to move away from true turn based games.

Re: Need advice!

the dragon warrior series is pretty basic and great fun, dragon quest 8 is arguably my favorite game of all time.

Re: Need advice!

if you still have a playstation 2, xenosaga was pretty easy/good, or if you have a ps3, just download final fantasy 7, its probably a top ten game of all time at this point

Re: Need advice!

I'm not a fan of FF7, I DLed it on PS3.

I don't like how you're timed, it's not true turn-based, like what DB brought up.

I was fairly disappointed.

Of course, if I ever were to get a PSP, then I may transfer it over and play it on the go. But console-wise? No.

My advice? Grab a Pokemon ROM (legally, of course).

Re: Need advice!

I can't believe nobody said this

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Chrono Trigger

It's not exactly turned based but it's so close to it that it's more or less the same style.

Otherwise, I'd say go for Final Fantasy III, it's definitely my favorite NES RPG anyway.

Re: Need advice!

How about Mario and Luigi: Super Star Saga, it was a fun and easy game, just stay away from Final Fantasy IV, that one is very hard.

When you can't even beat the American version, it makes me very sad.

Not the first American version (I believe that one was released here as II), the one on the DS with the restored difficulty, and the lack of party switching that was added to make the GBA version easier.

In that case, I would say yes Final Fantasy IV DS was much more difficult than Final Fantasy III DS. Both are excellent games though.
