It's so cruel to make people only pick one RPG...

It's definitely hard to pick just one... Interesting choices here!

Nice to see both P4 and Xenosaga in there. :D

Some very interesting choices. I enjoyed Final Fantasy VIII so it was a pretty good suprise to see it up there as well as Persona 4 (I liked 3 better), and Xenosaga (Xenogears is one of my favorites)as well as Dragon Quest IX.

It really is hard to pick just one and I doubt that I ever could, from Valkyria Chronicles, Suikoden and Persona to Dragon Age, Fallout and Knights of the Old Republic I enjoy all types of RPGs so it was nice to see some unexpected choices in this list.

CRAP! You just reminded me of another favorite - Suikoden 3. <3

I don't even want to attempt to pick my favorite RPG of all time. x_x Maybe if I had five different lists to add to.

Always awesome to see someone else who enjoyed Final Fantasy VIII! It feels like there just aren't many people who really liked that one.

Someone needs to explain why JRPGs are so popular. is it just the anime characters? are the stories better? the fantasy settings? i have a hard time getting into them because they take forever to start. FF7 was the only one that i played a lot of and it was because everyone liked it so much. It was ok, i never finished it but thats only cause of the random battles. otherwise i can see why ppl liked it, i dont remember being upset because it was so slow at the start but i could be wrong about that.

For me, it's the quirkiness of another culture. Japan has been majorly influenced by the US for sure, but they managed to retain something that we never seem to have captured in the US, and in turn with gaming. It's almost indefinable, but in a way sometimes I feel like they just appreciate life more than we do, and their games often portray that in subtle ways.

Yeah, sometimes they're just glorified hentai, but there are gems. It's also the first kind of RPG most of us ever played, which also lends some weight to the JRPG genre.

I don't know, I just honestly really like the gameplay (I really like turn-based and strategy battles) in a lot of JRPGs... I think the nostalgia factor is high.

Because WRPG battles were traditionally not much more than hack and slash mechanics.
