Fighting games are fun, MOBAs are mad, and strategy games are sublime, but sometimes you want to dive into something deeper. To step into someone else’s shoes and into another world. For those times, there are RPGs.
So many to pick from, so many types over so many years. I'd probably pick Chrono Trigger as the most standout of all my RPG experiences. But I'd like to shout out to one out of the spot light game.. EVO The Search for Eden. A really creative JRPG that fuses elements from Feeding Frenzy with classic Action RPGs from the 90s. Check it out sometime. I'd love a sequel.
Haven't played many. Thinking of getting a PS2 to play like 50+ of them though. * My favorites would be: * Dragon Quest 9 * Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2 * Legend of Heroes: Tear of Vermillion * Fire Emblem: Awakening
Parasite eve , Vagrant story chrono cross, to many beautiful ps1 rpg games i hope they make a return on ps4.
Best RPGs (mostly JRPGs) are on Playstation consoles, especially on PS1/PS2.
Dragon Quest. All of them. Give me more! Honorable Mention:(in no particular order) Ni No Kuni Demon's Souls Ultima IV Secret of Mana Chrono Trigger Earthbound Ogre Battle (all)
Hmmm..hard to choose. But Id say my top three are definitely Final Fantasy Tactics Chrono Trigger Shin Megami Tensei: NOCTURNE On Second thought I kind of want to throw Vagrant Story in there lol. But there are many great RPGs for sure.
Playing through Chrono Trigger right now, that game is awesome. It's already one of my favorites, my other favorites would be ff 7 and persona 3 and 4. Haven't played enough jrpgs though. Never cared too much for most western rpgs.
The Legend of Dragoon.
Mass Effect for the west. It is was my first WRPG that I played as a teen. It maybe the nostalgia but no WRPG game to this game has blown me away like it has. Worthy mention Oblivion Kingdom Hearts for JP. My first PS2 game that blew my 8 year old self away. Worthy mention Pokemon I have beaten ME1 probably 8 times and I want to play it again and Kingdom Hearts just hits me hard with nostalgia making me feel so happy every time I see or here anything related to the game. These are like my Mario games for those generation systems, though Halo 3 kind of ties with ME in that regard. Hopefully Xbone, Wii U (this could very well have a game already that could) and PS4 eventually get games that have this kind of effect on me.
Yeah mass effect 1 was awesome finished it 5 times last one was biotic fem shepard on insane , Saren didnt even stand a chance with liara and kaidan went all in , didnt even touch me , ah good times , and kh2 final mix was the best , terra and sephiroth and organization 13 were awesome on critical mode .. cant wait for .kh3.
Too many to pick from. LoD FFIV FFVI FFIX Chrono Trigger Mario RPG Dark Cloud 2 Diablo 2
Man so hard to choose just one. I just have too many that I enjoy. Xenogears FF7 Chrono Trigger Rouge Galaxy (Supremely underrated in my opinion) Tales of Symphonia/Vesperia Duel Saga Dragon Quest 8 Witcher 2 KOTOR Jade Empire It's just too freaking many that I enjoy. I can't just name one at all.
1 fallout 2 mass effect 3 zelda 4 elders scrolls 5 final fantasy
Fallout 3 Honorable mentions:All in that order. Elderscrolls IV Oblivion Elderscrolls V Skyrim Fallout NV Mass effect 2-3 (tie because i loved them both the same) Fable 2 Kingdoms of amular
Between Fallout 3, New Vegas and the add-on DLC, I blew through just over 730 hours. Mass Effect trilogy is a close 2nd place, mainly due to Garrus and Mordin.

Don't forget The Legend of Heroes VI: Sora no Kiseki. It finally got localized and was released a week or so ago on Steam under The Legend of Heroes VI: Trails in the Sky. While the graphics are quite dated, the game is absolutely amazing.
I can't go past the first RPG I ever played, Secret Of Mana. So many feels But Chrono Trigger and FFVI are not far behind, in some ways they're better. Also Secret Of Mana 2, which never officially released outside of Japan
1) Fallout 3 2) Persona 4 Golden 3) Fallout NV 4) Mass Effect 2 5) Ni no Kuni (Even though I never finished it :/ )
My favorite of all time is The Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past on the Snes. More recently would be The Witcher 2.
Everything Final Fantasy except the MMO's,love the franchise...can't wait for FF-XV!...loved playing Square early rpg's from SNES to the PS2 era also.
FFVII, Xenogears & Suikoden II will always be the HOLY-TRINITY of JRPGs for me, the best of the best this genre have to offer, although I have play countless others no other game make me feel like those 3 games, for any1 who call himself JRPG fan & never play one of those games I must say to them: "You don't have idea what you are missing!"
