The GWJ JRPG Club 2.IV Remastered: Let Us Grind Together! - Voting in progress!

I'm confused. Do the votes also roll forward?

I'll have to think about what to nominate. In light of the conversation above, I'd like to aim for something that's at least on PS4 and possibly on PC, too.

I can see how that was confusing! Sorry about that. No, the votes don’t roll forward, I was just illustrating where things stood last time.

Gotcha! Thanks for clearing that up.

I'll be selfish and nominate Persona 5. I admit that I'm planning to play it soon, anyway.

Second! A coworker just played this and made it sound great.

After plenty deliberation with my own self, I've decided to nominate...

The Last Remnant (PC, Xbox 360, and, soon, PS4 in remaster form)

(The game's soundtrack has been on my various iPod Touches/iPhones for years, but I've never actually played the game, funnily enough.)

Seconded! It was one of three games I wanted to nominate, anyway.

Nomination list updated (see my previous post).

I would like to nominate Odin Sphere Leifthrasir which is available on PS3, PS4, and Vita.

Seconded.

That is one awesome, fun game. I would add a vote to it but I platinum'd it earlier this year, so I'll sit this one out if it gets the nod. I'll join in on the conversation if it gets it, though.

Interesting... I have this on PS2, but never played it. Considering the issues plagued by that version, I would probably have to buy the newer version for this...

List updated. I will post the final list tomorrow night, and voting can begin after that!

Are we still limited to one nomination per person?

Yes.

Double post

Ooh, excited to see Odin Sphere Leifthrasir on the list! I've wanted to pick that one up. We have a pretty strong stable of contenders, here.

I'm always pumped to get something off my insane Vita backlog.

I'll second Odin Sphere and Last Remnant, I won't nominate anything as I'm currently stuck in Witcher land, but I already have an active playthrough of Odin Sphere and Last Remnant sounds interesting (bonus that I can play both on PS4)

I'm still a bit confused so I will wait to see what is brought to the forefront of the nominations.

Persona 5 is currently half price on PSN in the US.

Although given the inclusion of Joker in Smash Bros, I'm kinda waiting to see if the game gets announced for the Switch. They might be justifying his inclusion based on Persona Q2.
