This poll is now closed.
Second List:
Mother
Secret of Mana
Finish Octopath Traveler (well, I didn’t get that far)

So I think I’m coming up to the end of TTGC and I want to play another RPG after this.
Recently I decided to make a rule that I’m only gonna play one RPG at a time. Problem is, I’ve such a ridiculously huge selection to choose from and I don’t know which to pick. What do you recommend?

I also have (but not really considering at the moment)

Fire Emblem Awakening (started, haven’t finished)
Fire Emblem Echoes (got really far in but got stuck on an annoying ass map)
Fire Emblem Birthright
Phantasy Star IV - VI
Shining Force I - III
Xenoblade X (started this, and I will come back to this at some point but not yet)
Golden Sun The Lost Age (gonna beat 1 first)
Mother 3 (gonna beat EarthBound first)
Paper Mario Sticker Star (started, don’t really have much interest in)
Color Splash (no idea why I own this)
Bowser’s Inside Story remake (is the original better? Didn’t enjoy SS remake as much as I felt I should)
Pokémon Ultra Sun (got bored cause I’d already played Moon)
technically Let’s Go Pikachu as well but ehhhh
StarTropics on NES Online
Mario and Luigi Dream Team (I actually enjoyed this a lot, the amount of it I played, a lot more than I did SS)

I know people are gonna ask why I should even consider Mother over EarthBound but I thought it might be cool to play the games in order, plus I own it and I feel like if I play EarthBound first I might be turned off Mother 1 forever.

RPGs I’ve beaten (not many):
A bunch of Pokémons
Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
Final Fantasy VII
Xenoblade Chronicles (my favourite game)
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Undertale
Deltarune Chapter 1

I hugely recommend Xenogears if you enjoy the themes that Xenoblade has brought overall; it was amazing going back to see Monolith's original work and seeing that it is where a large number of all three Xenoblade's plot points and themes come from

It's just a shame that it never turned out the way it was ultimately planned to be...

Tales of Symphonia is the best game on that list imo
Xenogears takes second

Xenogears is one of the main ones I’ve been leaning towards, looks very interesting to me.

...it’s also the only game here besides Mother 3 that I own illegally because you can’t actually get it any more lol

If you do play Xenogears you're not going to want to play it on console anyway because the text speed is unbearably slow. Definitely gonna want to use a code to speed it up, but even then it's still kinda slow.

Just gonna say I myself voted FFVIII because:

1. I don’t think it’s gonna get as many votes as the others.

2. I’ve actually been leaning towards it recently, it seems really interesting and the music is great. Not entirely sure why it’s disliked compared to some of the other FFs. Honestly maybe the main reason is because it came after 7 lol

3. I needed to vote one because having to click ‘view results’ every time drives me insane

Final Fantasy 6 is a wonderful game. That one easily gets my vote.

All of these are FANTASTIC choices (except VIII, which is simply a good choice), but I believe Chrono Trigger's an essential for JRPG fans. Honestly, though? Any works, and I hope you get to all of them eventually.

What do ya mean a code? Are you talking about a mod? The emulator I’m using is meant to be accurate to the original, not sure if there is mods for it...uh oh
