Out of the ones you've listed i've played Blue Dragon briefly & finished Lost Odyssey, which for me was a fantastic game, so i'll pick Lost Odyssey as my favourite.

I tried the Blue Dragon demo a long time ago, and did not like it.  I do plan on buying Lost Odyssey, Last Remnant, Infinite Undiscovery, Tales of Vesperia, Star Ocian IV, and Final Fantasy XIII next year.

I don't know much about Magnacarta 2.

Lost Odyssey is well worth a play.  Haven't tried Last Remnant yet, still on my shelf sealed for fear of me losing another +50 hours!

As for Magnacarta 2, I dont know much but its Korean not Japanese (KRPG?!?), and its a sequel to the PC exclusive game.  Looks pretty good from the screenshots I've seen.  Got an August release date for Japan but nothing yet for US or UK.

I didnt like EnchantedArms but I love Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

Magna Carta is also available on the PS2. I have it, but never played it.

I enjoyed Infinite Undiscovery and THe Last Remnant, i also plan on getting Star Ocean this year, Tales of Vesperia put me off with the demo.

Lost Odyssey for me too. I quite liked Blue Dragon but never finished it (although my wife did!). I have Last Remnant and Star Ocean waiting to be played.
