    As for best JRPG last gen, if there was one I didn't play it if we're talking about the classic turn based variety. Demon's Souls, Valkyria Chronicles and Folklore are my top pics for Japanese offshoot RPGs last gen. If we're going into portable territory, wow a bunch we got and even more (much much more) we never got, plus when we add Falcom into the equation things can get messy lol.
    That is actually a really good point. I forgot how portable friendly Japan was.

    Xenoblade, much like Ni No Kuni, really scratched a particular itch at a time when there weren't a lot of traditional JRPGs coming out for modern consoles. I think that made them more overrated than had they come out in the PS2 era. It also had the bonus of FAN OUTRAGE~! when it wasn't immediately translated, so after everyone was begging for it, they couldn't quite come out and say it was only good.
