Top 10 Japanese RPGs of All Time

From the PlanetXbox360.com feature editorial:

"what will follow is a top 10 list of the best Japanese RPGs, shining examples of the JRPG genre done right. These games are proof that the JRPG genre is not, as a whole, stagnant and rigid, as these games in particular have addressed most, if not all, of the flaws that other articles points out as being supposedly endemic to the JRPG genre. The games on this list are just plain awesome, and the fact that they are JRPGs becomes irrelevant in the face of their quality. Not all Western gamers are closed-minded towards JRPGs; in terms of myself, I love the JRPGs that are "off-brand" so to speak, i.e. not part of the big name franchises such as Final Fantasy. So that is what this list will focus on, and thus will hopefully further my argument that you can find a great game in any genre on either side of the Pacific, if you look hard enough. On that note, let's begin."

Too bad the author didn't like Final Fantasy titles, otherwise 4 or 5 of the games in the top 10 would be from Square Enix, still I'm looking forward to playing some of these titles before FF13 comes out next month.....

No, they would have been from Squaresoft or Enix. Square Enix is a travesty.

No final fantasy,xenogears or chrono cross/trigger?!! O_O
oh well it's the author opinion ;)

Sorry, but why is a 360 site covering games on the Playstation brand?

UltimaEnder2997d ago

Because the fact that a classic Playstation brand: Final Fantasy XIII is coming to Xbox 360 in just over a month I'm guessing the author wanted to list the top 10 JRPGs across all gaming platforms, which makes for a much more interesting list....
