The incredible lack of PC RPGs on this list shows IGNs obvious inexperience with real games.

Oh yeah, they put games like Diablo on it so far, and Fallout 2. Uh huh. Big surprise. Perhaps they could just compile "Top 100 most popular RPGs" and the list would look the same.

You do realize there is 40 more games to go on the list right ? And some of them WILL be PC.

Jumping to conclusions makes you look less than intelligent.

well thats becasue there have been alot more good JRPG's than WRPGS over the long history in this genre

WRPG's werent very good until the mid/late 90's

there will be alot more higher up the list although I suspect Chrono Trigger will be top, a masterpiece

IGN has no clue about what it takes for a RPG to be good. They are just randomly generating this list naming 100 well known games.

Xenoblade Chronicles is by far the greatest jrpg I have ever experienced. Followed by Final Fantasy 7, and The Nintendo Gamecube entertainment system version of Skies Of Arcadia.

Rated E For Everyone

C'mon IGN!! Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy 10 & Kingdom Hearts 2 should ALL be in the top 20 at least 30. Heck some games like Xenogears in my opinion is in the top 10. To me it is my favorite Square game they have ever made....fighting in giant mechs how can that be bad!

I can't wait to see their top 20.

Mass Effect and Dragon Age are what IGN consider "GREAT RPGs". FPS and hack n slash with RPG elements. Damn, even Diablo is a RPG for them.

demons souls is #1
guitarded77  +   679d ago
I think they put Demon's Souls at #79... if I remember correctly. I do wonder how they made this list. There are some great games much lower than some okay games. I think they put a few great games in each group of 10 so the list doesn't get stagnant. Anyway, my list would certainly be different, but it's always interesting to see other people's picks and compare them to my picks.

VileAndVicious  +   679d ago

legend of dragoon [96]
Persona 4!!

The fact That IGN put KH2 higher than KH1 shows how credible this list is. Ign themselves gave KH2 a 7.6 and KH1 a 9 yet KH2 is higher than 1. Also Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy IX and Mass Effect 2 are top 10 according to their Metascore.
