Disgaea 2 is the best one, IMO. The thing about the characters in Disgaea 2 is that they're the least annoying. That might sound like faint praise, but it's high kudos to give to an anime game. There's nothing wrong with Adell. He's a pretty standard protagonist, but he's fine. His family are ok. Rozalin is a pretty fun character. Yukimaru's verbal tic is much less annoying than the ones in other Disgaea games, like SUPER and PLIP. Even the sardines gag in Disgaea 4 wears a bit thin sometimes.
Adell's mother might actually be my favorite character. Her attitude is just hilarious, especially in the opening segment.

I liked Zetta as a character a lot but I just could not get into Makai Kingdom's game system. I think I made it through a few chapters before I gave up.

Though I love Makai Kingdom, I have to admit that the system is a bit of a mess (probably because the game was salvaged from a much bigger project). There are a shitload of fiddly bits and too many weird and/or gimmick-y weapon types.

Never played Makai Kingdom. It was super expensive by the time I wanted to buy it.

La Pucelle never grabbed me. Phantom Brave was ok. But overall, Disgaea is their best series and 2 is the best of those IMO.

Turn based is pretty cool.

I like the original Rome: Total War and Medieval II, but my reflexes are usually too slow for RTS games in general. So turn-based is good for a pleb like me who can't react fast enough to what's happening.

My problem with TBS is that there are so few games I feel can stand up to the absolute top tier. On consoles, that'd be Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre. Everything else feels slow and shitty by comparison. The one other franchise I think is pretty good on consoles is Disgaea. It's a huge fucking grind, but the core of the game is fun and it is pretty deep and involved. I loved the shit out of Disgaea 2 on the ps2.
How do i get good at Total War games battles? I am ok at all other aspects but for some reason i can't manage battles
You need to pauze and give orders a lot or the ai just exploits everything you did. You cant put in some orders and then just let the battle go, basically pauze and adapt everytime you see the ai change up their tactics.

I beat La Pucelle, but it's by far the most bland of the NIS games I've played even more so than the Disgaea 3. I couldn't beat Makai because of the system, but the story and characters were far better than La Pucelle.
