New console/game advice needed.
Posted 12 February 2013 - 02:29 AM
I have a 360, but I really only play Dark Souls on it now, and even that has started to become stagnant. I also have a PS Vita, which I play very often. I am looking at possibly ditching my 360 in favor of a PS3 or a 3DS. Also, I am probably going to be building a gaming PC after I graduate in May.

Have you tried playing Mass Effect the story is amazing and it's a very good universe you should definitely check it out
Yeah, Mass Effect is actually one of my favorite series. I picked up the first one when I had just received my 360 and it blew me away.

As antlp89 said, wait for the new console announcements. Prices for the current consoles will drop 50 bucks maybe.
Since you have a 360, get the Konami Classic Collection Vol 1 (the one with Symphony of the Night), Lost Oddysey, Tales of Vesparia and Dragon's Dogma.

Skyrim is also a lot of fun, but I prefer that on PC because of the modding community.
The PS3 has a great selection of RPGs as well. Ni no Kuni and Tales of Graces F are a blast Not to mention Tales of Xillia coming out this year. I would wait until after the Sony Feb 20th event though as others have mentioned - they may price drop the PS3.
I enjoyed Nier quite a bit also! It's not exactly a full-blown RPG, but it has similarities - more like an Action RPG. If you try it, be sure to give it more than just the intro portion. It's one of those games that really grows on you and the story isn't half bad either - one of my favorite things about it was you can do a 2nd (and 3rd / 4th for a different ending) playthrough and it translates what the enemies are saying, so you learn their side of the struggle.
Divinity II: Dragon Knight Saga is another good title It has a budget-game vibe to it, but it's really enjoyable. It has been described as a 'poor man's Skyrim' but I think it's a lot better than that. It's a very long game, has a huge world to explore, AND you can morph into a dragon that has its own set of attacks and fly around the world.
There's also a Space RPG called Darkstar One: Broken Alliance that I enjoyed. It has escort missions, trading routes, lots of pew pew combat, you can upgrade your ship (Weapons vs. Armor vs. something else I can't remember.. lol) and it changes the appearance of your ship which is nifty. I think it's a medium-length game, I spent.... 40? hours in it getting 100%. The story is a bit cliche, but still enjoyable.
If your into Co-op at all, Tales of Vesperia has co-op combat for up to 4 people which is a blast
Hunted Demon's Forge is more of a Gears of War Style shooter, but it does have a few RPG elements such as upgrading spells / skills. Lots of fun in co-op!

Tales of Vesperia, Eternal Sonata, and Lost Odyssey are all great recommendations. While the reviews weren't as great as some other RPG's the memories part of lost odyssey was very interesting, especially if you like reading a lot of story. If you are looking for something darker, could try the witcher 2 or any of the fallouts. The fable series is great too, always a fun diversion. While I love jrpg style combat, there is something very satisfying about taking someone out with a giant hammer or rapier in real time.
