    I love RPGs and looking for any and all good suggestions as to new ones to download. I like a wide variety of games. I love Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Fire Emblem, and Okamiden. I recently fell in love with Soma Bringer and Avalon Code. I also like old school games like Mario and Donkey Kong from time to time. I've played quite a few RPGs and have been browsing through homebrew games looking for something new too. I found a bunch of Pokemon that I like. I just want a few suggestions to round out what I've already played. Something epic, but with enough differences to make it interesting would be nice. Hoping to hear lots of good ones. Thanks.

    I have reccomendations for ds for you, but there's a good chance you already played them. :) Some of my favorites:

    Chrono Trigger
    Any of the Dragon Quest games - especially IX
    Golden Sun - Dark dawn
    The World Ends With You
    Although not strictly "RPG", you should try the Ace Attorney series, and most of all, Ghost Trick. Both amazing, but quite puzzle oriented.

    If you want PC reccomendations, I have one title for you. The Witcher 2: assassins of kings.

    Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, I've already started downloading a few. Handheld games are my major favorite, not sure why. These do sound great. The Golden Sun games do have nice graphics and are awesome, I played the original two a lot back in the day ( I loved them ) I've not played Dark Dawn as much as I'd like to. Xenogears sounds promising too. Is it any relation to Xenosaga for playstation or ds? I've already played several of the suggested games, but as I always say if a game is worth playing through once go through it again, you might find something you missed. I love puzzle games too. Have played some of Professor Layton and found them enjoyable. I really liked the Dragon Ball Z anime growing up so I'd bet the games are awesome. All of Fire Emblem rocks too! Thanks for the awesome suggestions :D

    It'd be nice if you listed the consoles that you have access to, otherwise I feel like we'll just keep recommending games for consoles you don't have...

    But from what I gather, it seems like you have mostly NDS or GBA stuff (as well as anything that is easily emulated).

    *Face palm* Yeah I could've listed them, I'm sorry...lol I've always been a fan of nds and gba. That's mainly what I play. I like other systems too, but I enjoy the take anywhere convenience of handheld gaming.

    The Oracle games were better...

    Well, let's see if I can mention any that haven't been said...
    Rune Factory 1, 2 and 3
    Dragon Quest V Hand of the Heavenly Bride (In my opinion, the best by far of the Dragon Quest series on DS)
    Phantasy Star Zero
    Custom Robo Arena
    Super Robot Taisen

    That's all I can think of that hasn't been said already but what kyorgeblue said is good, Luminous Arc, Tales of Innocence and Suikoden Tierkreis are all top notch RPG's on the DS.

    Edit: Oh and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor is awesome too.
