FF4, FF7-10, Chrono Trigger and Xenogears with Xenosaga getting a notable mention.

Anything else I've played, especially this gen, just doesn't hold up.

So you didn't like Final fantasy 13? It had a fun and engaging combat system followed by an amazing story.
TekoIie  +   804d ago
You know were talking about RPG's right? :3

FF13 didnt become an RPG until you were past 70% of the game which dragged on ridiculously long. Also its story is mediocre at best.

The only thing I can think of that made the game good was its boss fights, creativity with enemy designs and cutscenes.... I always like a good cutscene here and there in games ^.^

@Godmars290

That's a damn fine list you have there heh.

I'd include Lost Odyssey if not for the totally generic main bad guy (and totally forgettable) who totally undermined the great quality of the game itself.

Agreed. Almost. I cound handhelds as 'current gen,' so I'd include games like Persona 4 and Infinite Space, and Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky.

As for older games, yeah, there are those JRPG classics. Xenogears, Xenosaga, the 'golden' Final Fantasies (4-10), Chrono Trigger, Suikoden 2 and 5, Wild Arms, Dragon Quests--particularly the awesome DS remakes--and so many others.

But don't forget those incredible WRPGs from the golden age of PC gaming. Shadows of Amn, Planescape Torment, Fallout 2, Arcanum, etc.

I'd go with Borderlands for this gen as being my favourite.
Awesome_Gamer  +   803d ago
Demon's/Dark Souls
Snookies12  +   804d ago
Cannot pick a favorite, there are way too many amazing ones out there. FF6-10 (and tactics), Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Kingdom Hearts 1-2, Tales of Graces F, Xenoblade, Super Mario RPG, YS Seven and Origin, etc.

Overrated game followed by overrated game.
LX-General-Kaos  +   804d ago
I see you have yet to named a game. Just criticizing choices made by others.
remanutd55  +   804d ago

urwifeminder  +   804d ago
Jade empire for me.

So hard to name one... I'll go with action rpg Demons Souls.
solar  +   804d ago
FF6. Nothing else has been close.to that masterpiece for me.
Chrono  +   804d ago
Chrono Cross
Pintheshadows  +   804d ago
Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2 or Icewind Dale. Out of those three I can't decide.
Xof  +   804d ago
Wait, what? Icewind Dale? Really?
Pintheshadows  +   804d ago
You have a problem with Icewind Dale then me and you have a problem pal.

I'm kidding, but yes, Icewind Dale. You know, one of the best D and D based isometric fantasy rpgs ever made, by some of the most talented individuals in development.
dorron  +   804d ago
Dragon Quest VIII
Relientk77  +   803d ago
An amazing RPG, and game
Max-Zorin  +   804d ago
Shadow Hearts
catch  +   804d ago
Earthbound for me. Some notable mentions are FFVI-X and XII, Chrono Trgget and Cross, Xenoblade and the Xenosaga games, Breath of Fire series and the Tales games.

As far as recent (locally anyways) RPGs go the best I've played in a while is Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.
greyhaven33  +   803d ago
In my experience ff8, kotor and mass effect 1 have been my favorites. Don't care if you disagree, as I'm quite sure many of your opinions differ, the point of this article is to name YOUR favorites...

FF7. People need to stop hating on what's popular and actually play through the story. Read the entry on the article about it and see why.
