I'd love to try some of the great Strategy and Tactics RPGs, but I've heard many of them are extremely challenging. I'd like to try a good "starter" SRPG, which wouldn't be too overwhelming for someone with no experience with the genre. I'm not afraid of a good challenge though, that is what is drawing me to this genre. I'm up for any suggestions. I currently own a PS2 and GC (and many older consoles), and I'm planning on picking up a DS very soon. Thanks for any suggestions. smile.gif

You should play one of the Disgaea games. Those are very fun games.
They are not easy, but they won't scare you away. There's always a tutorial at the start of the game, so it will help.


A game that I would recomend is Stella Deus: Gate of Eternity.
It didn't get great reviews, moste gave it a 7-8 score.
I like it very much, good Sakimoto music, solid gameplay, and the graphics are ok. The only problem are the voices. They are not worthless, but both you and me have seen better.

Fire Emblem is a good series.
Final Fantasy Tactics isn't too hard at the start.

Theres also
Arc the lad: Twilight of the spirits which is sorta fun but might be hard to find

Like Sabin said Disgaea is a very good game. Try that.

I would definately recommend FFTA but I'm not sure as that game is a bit advanced but it isn't that hard honestly. This game is so much fun!

Phantom Brave is pretty cool as well.

Thanks everyone! I think I'll pick up Disgaea and FFT. I've heard FFT is pretty difficult, but I've also heard it has an incredible story. smile.gif If anyone else has any other good SRPGs to share, feel free to list them!

Also, which is the best (or your personal favorite) of the Disgaea games?

Final Fantasy Tactics is awesome. Its difficult at the start but I was a n00b and I still only died a few times in the entire game.
