Isn't that a JRPG for jobbers?
Excellent story, well-written MC, solid supporting cast, engaging battle system, so no, it isn't for "jobbers."

What I was saying was a joke as it's a complete unknown

My apologies, it can be hard to tell in a text-based medium. Having said that, it being an unknown is just sad; Trails in general has probably the best world-building I've ever seen, and easily better writing than most Final Fantasies.

What? AFAICT Cold Steel is way more well-known and prominent in the RPG scene than the Disgaea series, the 5th installment of which you just cited as "one of the best JRPGs around".
Maybe I'm just too close to the RPG scene, but it feels like everyone talks about Cold Steel these days and nobody is saying anything about Disgaea (my guess is that's because it is and has always been a very subpar franchise).

Definitely better world-building because they take their time with it, and the older Trails games have better writing than most FFs, but Cold Steel absolutely does not have better writing than any FF. Heck, some of the NES FFs had more creative plots than Cold Steel.

I get slightly nauseated thinking of a day where an FF plot climaxes with the harem male-power-fantasy self-insert protag attacks a god dragon with a Dead Loli Sword while piloting his giant mech and activating his secret demon power all at the same time while his schoolmates look on. Yuck. I can somewhat look the other way in Cold Steel, because it does so many things well, but I desperately do not want other franchises to sell off all their dignity the way Trails has.

Cold Steel is hardly ever talked about apart from on GameFAQ though......nowhere else does it get talked about from what I have seen

And calling Disgaea a subpar franchise is a mistake especially when Fire Emblem exists

I don't consider Nier Automata or Dark Souls JRPGs. To me, those are action RPGs.
Just for reference. What do you consider Star Ocean and Ys to be, then?
I frequent a couple other RPG communities, and Trails is a favorite in all of them, with the Cold Steel games regularly getting year-end award nominations.

And Fire Emblem is superior to Disgaea in every conceivable way, imo.
