Grid based Strategy RPGs similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, Vandal Hearts, Disgaea, etc?

Recommended Posts

I've really been wanting to play one of these kinds of games lately, but I just can't seem to find any that interest me (or any like, at all).  I thought about playing Triangle Strategy, and I probably will eventually, but for now I want to look at other options.  From what I've read it sounds like the story is kind of average.  I'm also a bit reluctant to play more Disgaea games right now, because I loved Disgaea 1 and 2, but story-wise D3 was a huge step down in my opinion (I think right now I'd prefer something a bit more serious anyways.  But if someone wants to convince me that Disgaea 4 is way better than 3, by all means go for it).

I don't know many, to be honest. There's Enchanted Arms on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 if you want that JRPG design. There's Shadowrun Returns/Dragonfall/Hong Kong, which I'm fairly certain were bgrid-based. The Age of Decadence is a very difficult grid-based tactics game also, but it plays much better outside of combat (definitely for the story and setting, rather than any other gameplay merits however). Finally, it's not something I want to recommend but there's also The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics.

As for whether they're like Disgaea or not I couldn't begin to tell you. They're on my list of games to play at some stage, but honestly, I doubt my recommendations are all that similar. But when it comes to tactical RPGs, I know a handful of decent ones.

I hope you get the answers you'd like from someone else here! ^^

There's an entire genre called Tactical RPG that you can dig through.

There are few Tactical RPGs that are my favorite. They are ;

1. The Banner Saga

2. XCOM 2
