1.Final Fantasy XIII-2
It has more charm than FFXIII,has proper NPC interaction and better towns and a large city and the battle system feels more fluid.It's love story is better than in FFXIII and is more believable and very heartfelt.I liked being able to visit different places in the world at different regions in time(hundreds of years in the past or future)and seeing how different they look.
2.Tales of Graces
It characters whom I care about and an interesting and emotional story.I like how the story shows the characters when they're kids and years later when they're older teens to make it feel like you've watched them grow up.It shows romantic interests and jealousy.It has features that many people like to see in JRPGs such as towns,NPC interaction,beautiful fantasy world and it's battle system is fun and typical of Tales RPGs.
3.Resident Evil Revelations
It brings back the creepy,survival horror feel that has been missing in RE games for a long time.It makes you be conservative with ammo(to make it feel like survival horror)and has a more disturbing feel to it.It has a good mix of survival horror and action and numerous playable characters and a good mixture of different time periods the story/gameplay takes place in and I like how the characters have distinctive personalities and how the story shows the possibility of character romance.
4.Tales of the Abyss(3DS version)
It has interesting and diverse characters and good character development and a love story and I like how the prices of items in stores increases a lot during times of war to give you a sense that you're really in the world.It has the traditional JRPG features that many people love such as towns,NPC interaction,lots of sidequests,anime influence and the 3DS version has extra features including the 3D effect which at times looks nice but sometimes it doesn't.
I like it's open world and combat mechanics that make you think about defense and not just offense.I like how you can climb giant enemies before you attack them.It uses a proper day/night system to make you think about how you want to manage time(because night has very little vision when you're in the wild).The game has great music and you can acquire the services of pawns which are game generated or player generated characters to join your party and you can even buy the services of pawns who are stronger than your main character.
I'm still yet to play The Last Story but I own a copy of it and will play it after I plat FFXIII(just one more trophy to go).I don't have a PS Vita so I can't play Gravity Rush but it looks like a game I'll love.
Games I'm looking forward to in late 2012 or in 2013 or that I'm hoping for are:-
Final Fantasy vs XIII
It CGI's look beautiful and artistic(especially the scene with the beautiful woman).The game looks awesome,I just hope it comes out not too long from now.
Final Fantasy Type 0
It's received a lot of praise in Japan and I like the use of red color for it's costume designs.It's battle system looked fun too.Sources say Square Enix confirmed they were going to localize FF Type 0 but I haven't heard anything more since.
Ni No Kuni
It has a charming old school look and people who are working on this game have been involved in making anime movies known for their beautiful artstyles.
Yakuza 4 is my favorite game of the 7th gen and this I why I can't wait for Yakuza 5,especially since my favorite character from Yakuza 4 named Shun Akiyama will return and of course Kazuma Kiryu will return.It will take place in 5 distinctive locations across Japan and the combat in Yakuza 4 was great and a big improvement for the series and hopefully the player can date beautiful Japanese women again.
Fist of the North Star Ken's Rage 2
I liked the first FoTNSKR game and the FoTNS anime.It has a retro style that I like and I find the characters in the series interesting.I like how the first Ken's Rage game allowed you to see alternative storylines by using different characters and I hope Ken's Rage 2 allows more of the same.
The Last Guardian
It was supposed to be released in early 2011(or something like that)but there was game technical problems and then some of the team ICO staff left and the game's trademark expired which sounds worrisome.The Last Guardian world looks beautiful and realistic and the creature whom accomapanies your character is supposed to react in a realistic way to the world and this game sounds interesting to me for the same reason I loved Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom so much.
It's setting sounds interesting(hundreds of years after FFXIII-2)and you have 13 days to save the world and you can gain or lose time.
Paper Mario Sticker Star
It looks very charming and I love Paper Mario 64 and Paper Mario Thousand Year Door because of their charm,artstyle,story presentation and I like RPGs.Another reason I'm looking forward to it is I want another good game for my 3DS.
Final Fantasy X HD
It was confirmed it was coming to PS3 and Vita(I don't know about other consoles).I cannot wait because it's my favorite game of all time for reasons I've mentioned many times.It would be nice to be able to play FFX again without having to dust off my PS2 and having trophy support for it and I think a HD makeover would really suit the game since it has some beautiful locations/scenes so why not make them even more beautiful
Final Fantasy XII HD
It's far from being my favorite Final Fantasy game(it's actually my second least favorite FF game in the main series after FFII)but it was still a great game nonetheless and it has quite a good story and interesting world but it was poorly presented,maybe they could fix that with a FFXII remake.The gambit system was quite fun to use because it allows you to micromanage what your party members do in battle to a large degree and it's open world and hunts are a nice feature too.
Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core HD
Since the PSP's lifespan is over and the Vita can't play PSP UMD's,people who didn't or whom won't buy a PSP will miss out on what is one of the best JRPGs ever made and one of the most emotional stories in video game history.It's combat system is great and it's actually my favorite combat system out of all the Final Fantasy games.And add trophy support too
Final Fantasy IX HD
Whilst I think certain older Final Fantasy games such as FFVII and FFVIII shouldn't get a HD makeover because they're charming and artistic how they are and I don't want their artstyles/cinematics tampered with,I think a HD would suit FFIX because I think Zidane and the characters in world in FFIX would adapt well to a HD makeover.FFIX is one of the most enjoyable and charming RPGs I've played and I'd like to experience again(especially it's charming towns)but honestly the graphics for when you travel over the world map and for battle screens hurt my eyes a bit.
