Shuhei Yoshida's Top 5 RPG's Of All Time.
Great list :)
SO3 and ff7 i didnt beat, the others i have not played. Persona 3-4 tho <3. id have to keep it real and say Poke'mon Blue by default, too. currently playing through Chrono Cross and i have a feeling that its going to be one of my favs.
Chrono Cross is epic.
I like action based rpgs: Tales of Destiny, Star Ocean 2, Star Ocean 3, Legend of Legia, White Knight Chronicles 2 Also loved FF8, 9 and 10, Legend of Dragoon, Vagrant Story, Chrono Trigger. I'm playing through Demons Souls right now but I don't like some of the locations: That prison, the lava pit area and that one putrid place just aren't fun to me. Been skipping them.
Bad list IMOO : Chrono Trigger FF6 Baldur's Gate 2 Suikoden 2 Xenogears
Hardly a bad list NewMonday. I love all the games on your list too. Top 5 isn't enough for me. Anyhow, Dark and demons were two of my fav last gen games. ME2 needs a mention too, and the witcher 2. Fallout New Vegas was great to me. FF7 too. The games you mention are definitely in the top 10 of the old style of RPG's. Being turned based/Atm or isometric like BG2. Either way, I don't neglect new RPGs because i'm bitter about the way they changed from old ones. Neverwinter nights also deserves a mention too. Edit - I don't take anyones opinion seriously when they cite Xenogears. The reason is, the game totally ****ed up for the second disk. And not acknowledging that major **** up just shows how one perceives 'quality'. I mean the amount of people that destroyed Mass effect 3's name due to the poor ending and then just let Xenogears away with something that was hours long and simply not a game at all?
DQ3 hd remake now! I've heard the story and music are really good. I've actually heard some of the music and it sound a bit different than most DQ games.
Not a fan of WRPG's? Fallout, Morrowind, Skyrim, Witcher, ...
Typical games,Western games just don't hold a candle to JRPGs they don't give that neverending replayability,lasting impression that never fades nor are they hardcore.Try selling ur games & JRPGs would be ur last pick unless ur casual
The hell man? I love JRPGS and WRPGS. Deus Ex, The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, The witcher,Dragon's Dogma ( i think its western) are all incredible games and most of them have near ENDLESS REPLAYABILLITY and the gameplay varies quite a bit with it being real-time ( no arena either). I love JRPGS but most of them you run into an enemy, you go into a arena and there isn't as much ways to mix up the combat. There is more great JRPGS than WRPGS but don't go disrespecting such a fantastic genre.
What? Somebody doesn't like WRPGs? Blasphemy! /s The only western RPG I like is the first Dragon Age. Well, and Champions of Norrath. Not gonna bother trying to make a list. My top 5 would wind up being about 16 games.
What a guy :)
No legend of dragoon? Lol he was behind that game too! I haven't played a ton of RPG's but i've had my share and TLOG was one of the best i've ever played!
TLOG? The Legend of Gragoon? ;)
My 5 favorites are Final Fantasy 6, Golden Sun:Lost Age, Super Mario RPG, Xenoblade, and Pokemon Silver. I haven't played a lot of RPG's in recent years, but these stick out to me the most (in memorability and design)
poke silver was epic, thats the last one i played.
my list are : P3P P4G Demon Souls valkyria chronicles 2 tales of xillia That's what I played.
Mines is Persona 3FES Persona 4 Golden Ni No Kuni:Wrath of the white witch Dark Cloud Tales of Xillia
he likes them hard.
Great list! Here's mine: 1. Earthbound 2. Kingdom Hearts 3. Lunar: Silver Star Harmony 4. Fallout 3 5. Okami
ill have to check out lunar, im always seeing it on the store like "idk if i should get thisssss"
Good list. My top 5: 1. Chrono Trigger 2. Kingdom Hearts 3. Chrono Cross 4. Radiata Stories 5. Final Fantasy XII
Final fantasy IX Legend of Dragoon Dark Cloud 2 Super Mario RPG Diablo 2 No particular order.
No Ni No Kuni? Dark Cloud?
Legend of the dragoon ff6 ff7 super mario rpg xenoblade those are my 5
Secret of Mana Seiken Densetsu 3 Chrono Trigger Final Fantasy VI Pokemon Blue Honourable mentions: Final Fantasy X, Chrono Cross, Xenoblade, Xenogears, Ni no Kuni, Earthbound, FF4, FF7, Super Mario RPG:LOTSS, Skyrim, Fallout 3, Dark Souls
im currrently playing legend of mana, so far its awesome.
Cool, I never played LoM. I heard mixed things about it, mainly that it wasn't as good as the SNES games from the series. Some have said it's amazing however. How is the plot?
Nice list mr sho but mine are 1 legend of Zelda ocarina of time 2 Final fantasy 7 3 Wild arms 4 breath of fire 5 shenmue
Good games but neither OoT or Shenmue are RPGs. OoT is an action/adventure and Shenmue is an adventure.
great choices nearly match my own : FF 7 (definitely one of the best) , Demon souls, Dragons Dogma,Breath of fire 3 ..
I can only mention 5? Tough but I'll try 1. Xenogears 2. Final Fantasy VII 3. Persona 4 4. Tales of the Abyss 5. Skies of Arcadia
This guy has great taste.. Im sure he has a much larger list of games but didnt have the time to name them all
Since everyone's doing it, I'll put up my top 5 too. 1. Suikoden 2 2. Pokemon Red 3. Persona 3 4. The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky 5. Breath of Fire 3
Might as well put my list, in no particular order Skyrim Chrono Tigger Shadowrun Genesis version Xenogears Oblivion
My TOP 5: Xenoblad Chronicles Final Fantasy VIII Fire Emblem Awakening Tales of Symphonia Super Mario RPG The Llegend of the Seven Stars
Oh more teasing for demon's souls 2! :)
FF7? Both Demon and Dark Souls? Man, he needs The Last Remnant and Resonance of Fate on there asap.
here's my favourites (in no particular order) Pokemon Blue (i would have said pokemon red but blue fixed all the glitches that red had) final fantasy 8 demons souls persona 3 portable chrono trigger
There are lot's of great gamesin my list, a top 5 is unfair! i can only say the best! the most epic RPG of all times the is forever in my heart! Chrono trigger! Above Diablo II, dark souls, skyrin, Demon's souls, Final fantasy, Dragon quest, Persona, Tales, Ys, Xenogears, Xenosaga, Dungeon siege, dragon's dogma,pokemon, breath of fire, secret of mana, and many other! Chrono Trigger is a master piece! best RPG ever to me!
In no particular order... Super Mario RPG Final Fantasy VII Dragon Quest VIII Chrono Trigger Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past I'm finding myself torn to make a list of five because I've enjoyed so many RPGs over the years!
Zelda isn't an rpg though...it's more of an action adventure game....
my top 5 Legend of Dragoon FF:7 fallout trilogy fallout 3 Freedom Force/Freedom Force vs.The Third Reich
Ctrl + F Suikoden only two mentions Step it up guys.
The Suikodens are great. But, none of them can crack the top 5 of all time. There's just too many other great ones.
No persona 4? other than that great list. Also why would you put Demon souls AND dark souls? You might as well put Dark souls...it improves up demon souls...
5) The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion 4) Final Fantasy 10 3) Final Fantasy 7 2) Shining Force 3 1) The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
Pokemon R/B, Pokemon X/Y, Mass Effect, Kingdom Hearts, and Super Mario RPG for me but I don't play a lot of RPG's.
this list is a bulls*.JRPGs are not RPGs...
