    JRPGs on PC?

    Does anyone know of any JRPG or JRPG-ish games on PC? Preferably not emulator, although I'm perfectly open to those suggestions.

    Final Fantasy 7 and 8 got ported to PC, but you'll probably have to resort to Ebay to find them. There's also Septerra Core, Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII. Can't think of anything else offhand.

    The Last Remnant
    Final Fantasy 7 & 8
    Grandia 2
    Septerra Core (Not actually Japanese)

    The only good JRPG is Romancing SaGa 3.

    FF7 and 8, from what I remember, are a pain in the ass to get working on modern PCs.

    If you don't mind reading Japanese, Falcom have some of their jRPG stable on PC. A few of the Ys games have gotten fan-translations too, but those are more on the action side than RPG.

    To answer that question, the PC had Barkley, Shut Up and Jam:Gaiden. It's pretty awesome, I heard.

    It's not an RPG. It's a JRPG combat game. You can't play the character you want to play as there's no real customisation to speak of.
