A Brief Tour of RPG Videogames

While you might have heard of Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts, you might not be familiar with Xenogears. That’s okay; we’ll take you on a brief tour of a few of the most well-known RPGs. Whether you’re just getting started or re-discovering the genre, these videogames have a lot to offer. If you’re looking for a great adventure, you’ve come to the right place.


Xenogears is a series of RPG videogames. The game follows the story of Fei, an amnesiac painter who lives in the village of Lahan, a land that is on the border between the Aveh and Kislev worlds. When a mysterious army known as the Gebler invades his village, Fei is forced to pilot Weltall, the powerful Gear that has become his new home.

Xenogears plays like no other RPG. The mecha anime influences are apparent in the game’s design, and it has as much Gundam as Dragon Quest or Neon Genesis Evangelion. The game also features an impressive blend of platform gaming mechanics with dungeon sequences. Those elements make the game one of the best RPGs of all time.

Chrono Trigger

The Chrono Trigger videogame was developed and published by Square. It was the first game in the Chrono series. It features a character named Chrono, who is a detective who is assigned to investigate the disappearance of the mysterious woman. In this videogame, you must work with her to find her true identity. But, before you can begin the game, you have to find out what the purpose of the doll’s appearance is.

The gameplay of Chrono Trigger is simple yet challenging, with tight combat that involves contact with enemies. The game can be brutally difficult, so expect to grind through some tough bosses and grind a bit to achieve the end goal. The game is still memorable, with a memorable story to boot. If you’ve always loved Chrono Trigger, don’t let its age fool you! This game is not for the faint of heart, but for the adventurer who likes adventure, Chrono Trigger will be worth the experience.

Final Fantasy VII

A true classic, Final Fantasy VII is still one of the most popular RPG videogames today. The game’s development budget was US$45 million, and the game employed over 100 artists. Its design featured full-motion video and background images pre-rendered to look like they were from a movie. This allowed the game to play just like a movie, while offering a realistic simulation of battle.

Squaresoft, the company that developed Final Fantasy VII, struggled for years to break into the US video game market. Before its release, console-based role-playing games were considered niche products, but the success of Final Fantasy VII helped the company break into the American market. The company’s long history speaks for itself. After several failed attempts, Squaresoft finally succeeded in breaking into the console RPG market, which is now dominated by Nintendo.

Kingdom Hearts

You might have heard of the Kingdom Hearts videogame series. The games are action role-playing videogames developed by Square Enix and The Walt Disney Company. Tetsuya Nomura, a long-time Square Enix employee, led the team. The videogame series takes place during the heyday of Disney’s animated films. But it wasn’t until the series’ third installment that fans started talking about the videogame.

It has become an incredibly popular series, with thirteen games released on multiple platforms. The games have received positive reviews and have become hugely successful, shipping more than 35 million copies worldwide. The series has inspired a wide range of merchandise, including soundtracks, figurines, companion books, light novels, a collectible card game, and manga. While the videogames are not for everyone, fans of the series have found it an incredibly enjoyable experience.

The characters in the games are recognizable from the Disney movies and FINAL FANTASY. The main protagonist is a boy named Sora. There are also characters from Disney, like Donald Duck, and Goofy. The game also features an evil sorceress named Maleficent who bands together with other Disney villains to gain access to everyone’s hearts. Many locations in Kingdom Hearts are taken from the lore of various Disney films. Cid Highwind and Rikku also make cameo appearances.
