Fans of RPGs (109)

1 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 05/01/09(Sun)17:09 ID:Heaven [Del]

To all fans of RPGs, Japanese or English, I suggest
we get together here on this thread and talk about them.
I'll be pleased if you introduce interesting and exciting
RPGs available for free.

I think it must be incredibly worth while
for Japanese people to play English RPGs
in that they can learn the language
through intersiting scenarios. So I ask
English-speaking people to bring your favorites up.
In return, Japanese people tell you about
interesting freeware RPGs(though in Japanese, I think).
(There're many of the cool PRGs in Japan, too.)

Let's talk about RPGs and have fun!

Right now I am playing Vagrant Story for PS.
It's a very fun game made by the same group who made Final Fantasy Tactics. It's an odd style of RPG, and the ability to build your own weapons and armor is strange, but fun. The battles allow you to chain your attacks together with timed button presses, letting you chain no attacks or hundreds of them.

I can't wait to finally beat it.

Play 100-World Story for the Famicom. You'll never regret it - as long as you don't look at the screen or pick up a controller.

Take an RPG, a board game, and random incomprehensible plots, and there you go.

Dragon Quest must be quite a popular RPG in Japan!
I was speaking with a JP person on BarGIKO and he asked me my interests. They usually consist of MMORPG but he seemed confused. He was a fan of martial arts, so he wasn't too enlightened to the term MMORPG, but asked me if I liked ドラクエ.
I played one many years ago, but I guess one was released recently, as he asked, ゲームを8っけた? (Of course I had beat the game I played many years ago)
He ended up leaving when I confessed that I was an english speaking person: I guess he wanted faster-paced, more interesting conversation ;P Who doesn't?
In any case, I figured I'd contribute this (maybe) interesting story to the RPG thread. Maybe I'll look into ドラクエ once again!

Dragon Quest is THE popular RPG in Japan. For more info we go to the wiki-wiki-wiki~

I guess all the japanese Otaku people have the experience of playing DragonQuest1, 2 and the 3 when they were kids.
It is classics of the Otaku education.

67 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-11 18:12 ID:Heaven


Ahh, no Fallout on that list :(

Were Fallout 1 and 2 ever localized into Japanese?

68 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-14 01:11 ID:Ucs9aqU4

I played the first DQ as a kid. Rented it from Blockbuster. But it wasn't otaku. I was six at the time and couldn't name any country outside the US.

DQ7 is pretty good though. I think I'll probably try 8.

69 名前: hikikomori 2005-09-14 11:03 ID:v0vgX4ue


The game played DQ5 as a child is unforgettable.
A hero becomes a slave and also does marriage.
Above all, the picture also became beautiful by having become a SFC. Moreover, DQ5's music is also most pleasing.
I want a childhood friend like Bianca whose I am also.

70 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-14 14:40 ID:Ucs9aqU4

I don't think DQ5 was ever released in the USA.

What do you think of Suikoden? I liked III. IV was a lot worse, but still pretty good.

私はDQ5 が米国で解放されたことを考えない。 Suikoden についてどう思いますか。私はIII を好んだ。IV はたくさんより悪く、しかしまだかなりよくなかったではなかった。

71 名前: hikikomori 2005-09-14 15:51 ID:v0vgX4ue



There is a memory which did suikoden 2. The musical impression remains.
basically,I like RPG's music and the sound team of KONAMI has a high level.
like the music of FF,too.

Speaking of KONAMI, it counts on Silent Hill of a horror game.
A sequel will come out still more.

72 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-15 02:39 ID:Ucs9aqU4

I don't really like horror in general.

I like platformers and RPGs. Jak and Daxter is pretty good, and so is Rachet and Clank. I don't have the nintendo gamecube, but I might get one just to play the new Zelda game.

73 名前: same person as above 2005-09-15 02:45 ID:Ucs9aqU4

私はplatformers 及びRPGs を好む。 Jak 及びDaxter はかなりよい、 そしてそうRachet 及びがちゃんという音はある。 私はnintendo のgamecube を持っていない、 しかしZelda の新しいゲームをするために私は1 つをちょうど得るかもしれない。

Sorry I forgot to translate it for you. orz.

74 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-16 15:45 ID:Heaven

Bad Japanese! But I'm a Japanese, so I can understand you more than your perfect English!

75 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-17 02:04 ID:Ucs9aqU4

That's because I was using an online translator. I just thought it might be easier to follow if I used a translator so if you had trouble with English you could read the Japanese. Maybe I was wrong.

76 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-18 12:46 ID:7mnpW/WB

If you are interested there is a trailer for Suikoden V. It's looking good so far. I wish they showed more of what it would be like to play it.

77 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-20 11:47 ID:Heaven

platformerって何? (聞き慣れない言葉だけど…)

What's a platformer? (unfamiliar term here in Japan)

78 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-21 13:02 ID:7mnpW/WB

It's a game like Super Mario Brothers. The character jumps from place to place. I think it got its name because the landscape in the game has a lot of platforms in it.

What do you call those kinds of games?

79 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-21 19:06 ID:Heaven

In Germany, we used to call these "Jump 'n' Runs"

80 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-23 07:10 ID:Heaven

In Japan they're called "action games".
Games like Zeldas and Diablos are called action RPGs (ARPGs).

81 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-24 02:16 ID:7mnpW/WB

In America, Action games are the kind with a lot of fighting and action in them, but that your character doesn't get stronger as you progress.

82 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-10-02 07:09 ID:Heaven

Somebody made a thread about the Tales RPG series on the games board:
『〜Tales RPG Thread〜』

83 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-11-23 04:31 ID:kPToq5A6

If there's a facsinating English RPG which I can download online, please let me know. I'd love to play it.

84 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-11-23 06:44 ID:T+pniWyl

Those who have tried our demo, FInal Fantasy Time and Again, thank you so much. I hope you have enjoyed. We have a new demo available, and you can get that at if you are interested. Happy playing ^_^

Cave Story...

88 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2006-01-03 04:52 ID:Heaven

I've been downloading your demo, 50 minutes to go.

89 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2006-01-03 04:53 ID:Heaven

What's Cave Story?

90 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2006-01-10 20:19 ID:Heaven

I tried to get access to your forum, but I'm sorry I couldn't. So if you don't care, let me ask you something. I flew to the moon, went into a cave where the three of them were supposed to be tested or something, proceeded down to B3, and located a save point. But when I went to the save point, I couldn't move at all. Is it a bug? Do you think I need to start over and skip the save point to go on with the event?

I've been enjoying FFTAA very much, though I feel it is tough to go through battles with monsters. If Phae-Rel could chant a magic which recovers HP, not only for herself but also for Azrael and Lucien, it would be more comfortable to play it. I'm worried about MPs and stocks of potions all the time (I can run out of both of them easily, because of opponents damaging Azrael and Lucien and Phae-Rel hugely.

The other side of FF4, this is very interesting but tough at the same time..

91 名前: Azrael 2006-01-12 19:48 ID:Heaven

The site should be up and running fine now :

As far as the testing, you said you went to the save point and you can't move at all? If you can do me a favor, send your save file to so Sephiroth X can see if its a switch issue or something else is causing that.

The monsters are actually being balanced. We have had this problem for the past few demos, after having so many hours of playibility the monsters and characters need to be tweaked in order to make sure they are balanced. The next demo will have balanced monsters, characters, skills and weapons.

93 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2006-01-13 20:11 ID:Heaven

I'm sorry I was dumb enough to delete the file... I should have known you wanted it. If I remember correctly, though, it went like this. I tried to walk on the narrow path before I was asked from somewhere if I was ready, and I thought I wasn't, answered no, and was taken back to B2, then started the way back to B3 again before I noticed there was a save point, and it happened.

Anyway, I cleared the Bahamut event (I didn't use the save point this time), and finally beat Zeromus. It was great fun.
I can't wait for the episode 2. Still, I know I missed a few treasure boxes in the final castle, so I'll seach it again.

Let's talk about more about RPGs!

97 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2006-06-28 19:11 ID:UK87QwbH

I hate FF-style RPGs! I want more Cave Story-style ADV!

98 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2006-06-29 23:18 ID:Heaven

Why? Solving mysteries, searching for new weapons and armers, beating up monsters...All those essence of RPGs are really amusing to me, though.

Is anyone interested in translation Seraphic Blue? I've heard its a masterpiece, but I don't understand japanese... maybe I'll have to learn it :>

102 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2006-09-25 17:55 ID:XBs4ppbu

Seraphic blue ? What's that?
Is it a kind of novel or something ?

103 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2006-10-12 13:41 ID:h2kPDllm

i played that game Seraphic Blue myself.
thats my personal favorite ever.
though it is free game, i found it much better than consumer games.
its a RPG style game, and some similarities in system to Final Fantasy 7 can be found.
battle dificulity is relatively high, and if players dont think about tactics, they can be killed just by random enemies.
average play time goes over 50 hours.
well, the story line and whole theme are really dark and profound (that was the best part for me), so it definately chooses players.
however the quality is extremely high.

im the one whos waiting for someone translating it so that i can share with my friends.
the language style used is really uniqueness of the auther (Tempura),
and to keep that quality in translation must be a hard job.
learning japanese for that game would be even harder (lots of japanese people dont know how to read kanjis used in the script)

Hi, it's 1 here.
Seraphic blue is the most interesting RPG I've ever played.
As I said almost 2 years ago(see >>4), its story line is really awsome, though, as 103 pointed out, it's sort of dark.
(His(103) review is really to the point.)

Translating his work means a copyright infringement
without his permission... Of course, personally, it's good if many people abroad also enjoy it, though.
Anyway, some of the kanjis Tempura uses is really difficult because they're rarely used in this day and age, yes, so I guess young people like elementary students or jr high would have a hard time with them.

106 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2007-01-19 05:07 ID:SakyBFNW

I need more free time to play RPG's.

I haven't played an RPG since Final Fantasy 7 and Breath of Fire 3.

107 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2008-01-11 02:39 ID:dFUuGolR

This is not popular any more.

108 名前: sage : 2008-01-18 07:57 ID:Heaven

The title made me think of the kind of RPGs real men play, with pen and paper.

Sage for not being that.

Dungeon Master

These games are great fun!

(I am not good at English, wish I spoke at English well.)
