Absolutely love this game. The plot line was incredible, and very complex, I still don't understand all of it. I'd always heard of the Xenogears Perfect Works book, but it was in Japanese, I did a little searching and found a translated edition on Flickr.

It's a lengthy and somewhat confusing read, but if you loved the game and the story, you'll enjoy.

(If you download it, you can get, fuller/clearer images)

Cool find. I believe that you can also find torrents for it too.

I always become a bit sad when reminded of Xenogears. I honestly think it is the greatest jRPG of all time. No other story compares.

That feel when no new game will ever come close to it... I was so disappointed in Xenoblade Chronicles. I loved the story, music, and characters, but the filler quests of peace ruined it for me. It felt like playing a generic MMORPG. Seriously, it is probably 20 hours of plot and 100 hours of generic "Hey I'm too lazy to get this item. Can you get it for me?" fetch quests...

I never played anything other than Xenogears, but I heard everything else after it wasn't great. Which sucks, because there could have been so much more built off of Xenogears.

Nice find. Absolutely loved this game. The music for the game was absolutely amazing too. So many feels with this game.

Reps to you OP. The best RPG IMO and the best game on PSX. It's a shame Xenosaga wasn't as good as Xenogears.

Fuark must spread reps before I can rep you.

2/3 of the story = amazing.

Last part was like WTF HAPPENED?! Regardless, still one of the GOAT jrpgs.

Should I play the Xenosaga series?

Just beat Xenogears for the 4th or 5th time yesterday. Glanced over Perfect Works for the first time 2-3 days ago too

If only they didn't run out of time and/or funding during the second disc.

So good. I need to replay this.

@Swiftrick, I have never played them, but I haven't heard great things about the other games.

Best rpg of all time IMHO. So much potential lost with with that storyline. I still have hope someone will pick it up and do something with it and get the composer on board.

Goat soundtrack as well

Xenogears was and still is my favorite RPG and still in my top 3 favorite games. No other game has had a storyline that gave me the feels as much as xenogears did.

Loved Xenogears. What a great and massive story. Made during the days when Square was a stellar company.

Best RPG I've ever played, even over FF7

Amazing combat system, gears were freaking incredible, and the story was insane


And dat music whenever ID shows up... so simple and ominous
