    I've completed FFX, was totally disappointed when FFXII turned out to be action-based.

    FFX-2 is a joy if you can get past the campness.

    FFX-2 is ATB though.

    I've not tried it so I don't really know, but we could play PS1 games on PS2 consoles right?

    Final Fantasy X is a good starter.
    DDS is good! However Persona 3 shits all over it from a distance. AND I am personally prefering Lucifers Call to DDS (I'ts darker, the story however isnt as strong).

    Also; do yourself a favour and just get Final Fantasy VII and IX (and then VIII!).

    DOOOO IT.

    Also; FFXII isnt action based. It's turn based but without random battles and with mmorpg elements.

    Final Fantasy X
    Dragon Quest 8
    Final Fantasy 7/8/9 if you're counting PS1 games too

    and as PinkSpider said, I've heard good things about Persona 3

    PERSONA 3, PERSONA 3, PERSONA 3

    Or you can buy Persona 3: FES on Friday. That's turn based... I also recommend Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2.

    Shadow Hearts is a good RPG series as well.

    Really can't beat Persona 3 as Chrono-Kun might have ever-so-slightly hinted at in the above post :) But yeah, probably better to get the FES version this week (I know I am).

    Also have to echo the suggestions for FF7/8; both amazing games (FF VIII is my favourite game of all time). I know this is stretching it quite a bit since it's a PS1 game AND a 2D game but the PS port of FFVI is a damn good turn based RPG. Word of warning though: the load times are horrendous and actually made me give up on it so not one for the impatient.

    Wasn't there a very similar thread to this yesterday around lunchtime?

    Oh, and I second any recommendations for SMT: Digital Devil Saga.

    Looking down the PS2 list, I can see several...

    Oh well, gives us all a chance to make lists I suppose. Whether that is a good or bad thing is debatable...

    Inregards to turn based RPG's, these are the absolute best IMO:

    Persona 3
    Dragon Quest VIII
    Disgaea Hour of Darkness
    Suikoden 3

    Yes. Along with the really high tower and the people that turn into coffins at midnight and the people who put gun-like items to their heads to summon their personas.

    Awesome game though. Highly recommended.
