Top 6 RPG Mini-Games

Joe Miller: "This week is all about the mini-games that did so well distracting me from missions of earth-shattering importance. After all, what fun is saving the world without the rattle of dice and shuffling of cards? I stayed away from slot machine, poker, or arena style mini-games, and ones that were heavily quick-time event based. What I like are games that managed to give a break from the RPG grind, but still have some integration or usefulness, so it didn’t feel like wasting time while dabbling." (Fable 2, Final Fantasy VIII, PS3, Retro, Suikoden, Xbox 360)

I think Bliztball is the best if you understand how to play it.

Then the card game in FF9.

Nah FF9 card mini game sucks compared to FF8 Card System and in FF8 its more rewarding since you can mod them and FF9 cards are too small and Sword card? WTF.

@Izumo_lee
I prefered the mini-game srpg that you play in the phoenix Tower, so much that i have a separated file in case i want to play it again second its the racing mini-game.

Oh yeah i completely forgot about that tower defense game. Damn i should be ashamed for forgetting that. Another addicting mini game...FF7 had so many of them.

Agreed. FF9's card game was like a guessing game. FF8 is straight forward. Easy to learn but hard to master.

Nothing like losing a character card to a random npc.

Blitzball was the best mini game from the FF series.

I'll have to say the Snowboard mini game in FF7. Played that forever trying to get the high scores. Very addictive.

@About your reply

I liked how many minigames FF7 has, i was sad that in Golden Saucer the tower defence mini-game wasnt available that sucked. My top 5 five are:

1) Tower Defense mini-game
2) Racing Minigame
3) Feed the Moogle Minigame
4) Sub-Marine Minigame
5) Rufus Parade Mini-games (Mainly when i have to impress him iwth my moves)

I really want Triple Triad to become popular in real life again. I wanted to buy some of the cards on ebay but they're so expensive because of how rare they are.
