Top 100 RPGs of All Time #100-90

IGN - We all like to pretend, to make believe, to daydream. When we do, it's usually not about spreadsheets, laundry or homework. No, we dream of becoming heroes, becoming kings, becoming saviors, and doing whatever we like - right or wrong - while we conquer, save and survive harrowing adventures in faraway lands.

No single genre in video games lets us do exactly this - in exactly the way we want - like role-playing games. The Top 100 RPGs of All Time list celebrates the games that we believe most accurately exemplify the tenants of the role-playing game genre: building characters based on experience earned in the game, scaling combat based on the statistics of weapons, armor and abilities, making decisions - good or bad - that impact the game world. These core fundamentals make up the heart and soul of the RPG, and it is with these values as our guide that we present to you IGN's Top 100 RPGs of All Time.

Final Fantasy VIII deserves a higher rank.

You can't dictate how someone else rates a game in a top 100 otherwise everyone would inevitabley have the same opinions and make such lists common knowledge and therefore, useless.

I disagree, I find it to be a very weak FF, and probably only above the first 3 games because of its superior presentation. The game is a mess. When you consider that it was the game that came right after VII, it was a pretty big disappointment to many. For me, it signified the beginning of FF's decline. Despite many claiming it was Enix's fault, this is the game where it first started going wrong. IX brought things back to a standard, but it didn't progress the series in any way, and from X on it went from bad to worse.

Anyway, there's no point criticising FF games because even XIII has fans that seem to throw tantrums when people say the games aren't as good as other FF games, or even other RPGs. The argument inevitably ends up in "SHUT UP, THAT'S WHY" and nobody is any the wiser.

-.- I hate it when sites make you click on each one to find out where each game is listed.

And the sad thing is they're going to have 10 such list for each round. I don't even bother with that kind of trash anymore.

Look up above. See where it says "ign+"? Just click that and thumb it down (metaphorically). That'll show them not to keep trying to fish for hits. I don't care if it is a major publication. IGN is a far cry from being the "journalistic" online magazine it once was.

Final Fantasy 8 has to be one of the most popular but yet underated rpg's of all time.

The story, I think is unparrarell in any fantasy to date and that includes 7.
