    I posted a different question in the "Mass what should I get" thread a while back, but it seems that thread is DOA for the moment. Anyways as thread suggests, what are some good portrait oriented RPG's?

    Take a look at "The Quest" gold edition. Graphics are just ok, but gameplay is good and it's portrait of I remember correctly

    Just curious, why would you want only portrait mode RPG's? I can't imagine a scenario where you could only hold your device in portrait mode. :confused:

    Standing on the bus or train, holding on to a strap or bar. Holding a sleeping baby. Sneaking in a little gaming when you don't want people to know you're gaming. Laying on your side in bed trying to block the glare of the screen from waking your sleeping wife. Wanting a hand free to write notes or draw maps. Then there are people who only have one usable arm.

    Lots of reasons to prefer it, even if it doesn't work well for every game. It's interesting because this is one of the differences in the mobile gaming culture of Japan and the West. Japanese players far prefer portrait, while Western gamers prefer landscape. Hence DQ being portrait and FF being landscape.
