Will Snizek of Associated Content lists his picks for the "Top Ten RPG Video Games of All-Time".
i didn't read the article so let me guess-either ff7 or OoT is #1. edit-holy crap i'm wrong. yay for having original tastes&opinions.
Yeah i'm glad it wasn't just the well known popular ones
"Character customization is almost always something I look for from a great RPG." That line alone made it obvious that he's more of a westernRPG type guy and surprise, surprise! elder scroll is#1?!?! Noooot! where's Chrono cross and xenogears?! and skies of arcadia?! @dizzle... FF7 was indeed popular, but it was also a Great RPG to Top it off. No other RGP so far has gave me as much memorable moments as that game.
"No other RGP so far has gave me as much memorable moments as that game." Of course since you just made your own fricking genre right there.
cod mw2 cause of the perks
lol, please tell me you're joking. If you are, that was really funny.
Xenogears FF6 I like my games with great stories and characters. Not just filled with tons of meaningless quests.
LOL! oops! you got me [email protected]*KER! Haha! But you know what I meant..RPG.... damn wireless keyboard acting up again..Heheh:D
Didn't look properly or think what's missing earlier nd what i there, But ES4 num 1??What?. I agree with Baldurs gate Morrowind FF7 Chrono Trigger Kotor I would add FF6 FF10(although I HATE the VA for the most part) Demons souls I have yet to play Xenogears, suidoken and Skies of Archadia. I will though
I mean he sounds like a love sick justin beiber fan talking about Oblivion, and yes it was very good but it's all a matter of opinion. When you post articles like this fanboyism should be removed.
This was just one person's opinion.
Lol, people forget these are opinions. Though i would have to point out he forgot FFVI.
I liked Oblivion, but with all the glitches I dont think is the best RPG. WTF, I would put FFVII higher and add Demon's Souls. Who put all that crap in the list? did he start gaming when the DS and S-Box came out. Where the hell is Dragon Quest, Shin Megami Tensei and Ogre Battle??
Of Oblivion. I love Oblivion, but Demon's Souls is a better game.
Top RPG list without Demon's Souls = Hard Fail. As for me, I found Oblivion extremely repetitive and that made it boring fast for me. All those Oblivion gates? After I'd collected every scrap of loot and killed every in the first few gates, I got bored and just ran straight to the jewel to close all the later ones. The NPCs felt extremely artificial, the story was bland, etc. Needless to say I wasn't impressed. Only a real Elder Scrolls fanboy would make that game #1 of any list. I suppose any list is just opinion, and opinion in turn is affected by fanboyism, but this list is the worst I've seen in a long time.
Sorry, but who's listing a Tales title before, way before, FFVII?
LEGEND OF DRAGOON IS THE MOST OVERRATED PS1 RPG EVERRRRR GTFO
This list is surprising, but only because I disagree with about 80% of the choices. -CadDad
Was the rightful victor, the game is a combination of Breath-Taking, vast, Open world gameplay, with what seem's to be a limitless amount of possibilities, a simply stunning game and I for one can not wait to see what will no doubt be an incredible Fifth installment in the series. Also glad to see Chrono Trigger in the list, a Classic title. Both will stand the test of time, Chrono Trigger kinda already has but still...
I sold the game of the year edition a while ago, and now I miss it like crazy.
No Ephemeral Fantasia makes this a fail list.
I think WoW should be here too.... sure its played by tweens and isnt really a hardcore game but look at the effect its had
FF7 and Oblivion are the best I have ever played
Oh wow you said Oblivion is number one. You are going to get so hated on for that. But look on the bright side. You are about to get a boat load of hits.
Oblvion is a good RPG. People think RPG means story-fueld game, it does not. Oblivion doesn't tell a good story, but it really lets you 'play' your character, whoever you want. It might not be the best game in that list, but it's the best true-to form RPG. Others have much, much better stories, and character development. Sure. Even gameplay, but they don't give you the true freedom that 'role play' of a character should. PS: Still my list would Yakuza/Shenmue up at #1. Interesting that none of those made the list.

Hey look, another person complaining about the smallest of things on the internet... amazing.
Like I have said in every top rpg list ,,,, if it doesn't have xenogears , its fail in my book... I do have to give some credit that phantasy start 4 is on the list though ,,, that game was epic
Didn't like oblivion as much as morrowind. Nice Chrono! This game should be repolished in HD and put on PSN/XBLA. This game never gets old
everyone always forgets pokemon
Pokémon was on the 10 Most Controversial Games list. Go figure...hehe
This list fails, not only because it's missing about a million older and/or much better RPGs, but also because Kotor 2 is on there. I don't understand how anyone who liked the first one (much better game) could like the second one (rubbish). Oh well. Darth Revan ftw.
I hate people who think that older automatically equals better. Nostalgia shouldn't factor into a game's worth.
I'm talking about how good the games were at the time they were released. I hate little whining kids who seem to forget that there were RPGs before FFVII. Do you think Phantasy Star (Master System) could've made it on that list? I highly doubt it.
worth, yes gameplay, no
I completely agree, the Revan twist was nice, the second game was unfinished
Oblivion was a great game, but I just don't see it as a number #1. For me, the Oblivion realms felt tedious with little variety. It would have been nice if they had changed up the scenery a bit and added some different enemies or something. That would have given us a better reason to visit all the realms. FFVI should always be on a list like that.
KOTOR 2? Really? Really.
That's what I thought. I liked it, but it was just rushed so much and so much was missing.
No demon souls... SMH...your list is broke what are u gaming on an atari...
At least Kotor 1 was on there.
No Planescape Torment and Vagrant Story = Epic Fail
What?! Where is FF6, its only the best FF ever, people are starting to forget it because Square remade and rereleased every FF except this one.
This is fucking retarded, put KOTOR 2 before 1? Kotor 2 wasnt even a fully finished game, 1 was a masterpiece
He put KOTOR 2 at #8 and KOTOR and #2, that's why you see KOTOR 2 first. I still don't see how KOTOR 2 isn't a fully finished game (yes they mentioned cut content but it didn't play a major role to begin with).
my bad, i think i missed it there but KOTOR 2 was completely unfinished. You can tell by the ending, it leads nowhere, and now we arent getting a 3 so it left there title making no sense in the end. You end up fighting her (which wasnt a twist, since you SAW all the stuff she did, and could just TELL it was her) then when the fight is over.... you talk. You have a LOOONG ass coversation with hardly any reveals, then fly off to find Revan ?????
Well I see how it's understandable to do that when considering dialouge was one of the main pro's for the game. The convo.'s a bit rushed but it leaves things open for KOTOR 3.
Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy VIII The Adventures Of Alundra Vagrant Story Vandal Hearts Mass Effect 2 Final Fantasy X Silver The Legend Of Dragoon Knights Of The Old Republic Those are the games that have fuelled my RPG fire.
Bubbles up for putting Alundra and Silver on your list. It's still terrible however.
Why does he not consider Fallout 3 a RPG? I played both that and Oblivion and consider them (at the core) to be pretty similar? One has guns and one had swords and magic. Surely the presence of guns does not change a genre?
Morrowind > Oblivion FFVI > FFVII (and Chrono Trigger, for that matter) and this list needs more Planescape Torment.
You simply cannot put Oblivion as #1. Period, over, done. People who've played older rpgs know exactly why it shouldn't be there, there's so much better titles who carry that special atmosphere, gameplay, story, design...
I'm glad to see both of them made it. KOTOR 2 doesn't get enough credit. It surpasses 1 in story, atmosphere, and dialouge (imo but it's generally regarded I believe).
Maybe I'm just an elitist, but I don't think that Oblivion should be above Morrowind. Also, no Fallout 2? What's the deal with that?
where is the mario rpg,oh sorry it also got fps elements:)))
In no order Final Fantasy VII Tales of Symphonia Grandia Jeanne D'Arc Valkyria Chronicles Vandal Hearts Final Fantasy VIII Legend of Legaia Kingdom Hearts Legend of Dragoon
1. oblivion-pc 2. demons souls-ps3 3. wow-pc 4. neverwinter nights 2-pc 5. the witcher-pc 6. hellgate london-pc 7. diablo 2-pc 8. baldurs gate 2 and expansion-pc 9. jade empire-pc 10. mass effect 1-pc not 100% that order...but close there are so many more....just off the top of my head ten was Easy......love rpg's
Oblivion higher than Morrowind? AND number 1? Now I'm just really confused. Heck, Fallout 3 was better than both in my opinion, but I'm just a lowly, impatient action gamer. Seriously, I'm on a Dragon Quest VIII binge and gearing up for number 9 on Wednesday. Yeah, it's a linear, turn-based, random encounter grindfest, but it's my favorite linear, turn-based, random encounter grindfest.
Where´s Planescape Torment?
another list of the author top ten rpg
funny oblivion is in front of morrowind
This list started out decently then fell to complete shit. It's almost impossible to make a top 10 list like this with so many great RPGS on so many different platforms I admit, but this list doesnt even come close.
Pretty bad list, I must say, but it's all about opinions I guess... But what's with you calling The Old Republic 'KotOR III' and saying if they make another KotOR it would be IV? It is not KotOR III and the next KotOR would NOT be IV...
xenogears vagrant story and lost odessey ftw chrono cross was damn good also
hmmm been playing demon souls last night and I loved it, so here is my top 5 list 1. The Witcher 2. Elder Scrolls: Morrowind 3. FF7 4. Fallout 2 5. Mass Effect as I have just said I only started playing Demon Souls just yesterday but if I keep on enjoying as I did, I might be #2 !
Tales of Symphonia was a good game but not a great. Grandia II with its incredible battle system or Xenogear's amazing story are 2 examples of games that are many times superior... The rest of the list was good though.
So Fallout is excluded from the list, but Oblivion makes it to # 1? They are the same engine, the controls are virtually the same, just in a different time period. Although I do agree that Oblivion should be # 1. It may be the best game ever.
