PS2 RPGs Edit

  • Ar Tonelico
  • Atelier Iris 1,2 and 3

  • Dark Cloud 1 and 2 ( more action than straight turn-based but easy enough to play). Same developed as Rogue Galaxy so if you liked that you'll like these.
  • Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 (Shin Megami Tensei series, recommended as a pair due to duology nature)
  • Disgaea (turn-based strategy game, very funny and very time-consuming)
  • Dot Hack games (only played the first series but there are 4 of those)
  • Smt nocturne

    Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne

    Dragon Quest VIII
