The GWJ JRPG Club Version 2.5 HD Remaster: Now Voting for Games Q3 2022!

Not much change as this round wraps up -- but Fell Seal does edge toward the top of the pack. Radiant Historia and Tales of Berseria hang on, but each of them has less than a majority of the votes (12 people voting, so far), so the writing is on the wall. If things hold, we'll have a four-way round of ranked choice voting.

Current Standings:
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark - 9
Persona 4 - 8
Radiant Historia - 5
Tales of Berseria - 5
--
Suikoden II - 4
Atelier Sophie - The Alchemist and the Mysterious Book - 4
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III - 4
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - 3

This round closes at 9 p.m. U.S. Eastern! (Roughly 2 hours 10 minutes from the time of this post).

Atelier Sophie can never quite catch a break. Too bad, I think it's my favorite of the ones I've played.

Those games really hold their prices--I think the cheapest that I have seen on the consoles is $30. With a pretty tall pile, I need a little more of a discount, even on one of the older games, to bite. Maybe it will happen soon as I noticed that Square finally gave up and dropped I am Setsuna and Lost Sphear below the $20 mark recently after holding on for a really long time.

All right, on to ranked choice voting! Since I'm a bit late posting this, we'll have this round of voting run until Monday morning, rather than Sunday night like I previously said. Our finalists are:

Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark
Persona 4
Radiant Historia
Tales of Berseria

Here's how it works:

  • Vote for as many games as you'd like, ranked with the one you're most interested in playing first, second-most-interested second, etc.
  • If any game has a majority right away, it wins! If it doesn't, we eliminate the game with the least first place votes, then repeat the process. (Tiebreaker: 2nd place votes; 2nd tiebreaker: overall votes)

Are you counting these or are you being a Harriet Tubman Jeopardy judge?

I had to Google that. That's hilarious.

If this does not win this turn, someone should renominate it next quarter, and then I would nominate Radiata Stories, just for maximum confusion

I used to own that on the PS2! I don't recall if I ever did beat it. Might have to check any personal notes of the time, if any still exist.

I have it too, never even booted it up!

I think I played 30 minutes of it at some point. I have almost no recollection of it.

I played quite a bit of Radiata Stories back on PS2, never completed it though. I don't remember much about it though, just that there was a choice that caused a big story split.

Fell Seal Arbiter's Mark.

Been fingers crossing on this one for a while now!

I remember finishing the game and thinking "meh". I remember that the final boss sequence took forever.

Congratulations to Malkroth, our 5th finisher of FFVI!
