They made a Top Ten RPG's On PS3 list without White Knight Chronicles 1/2?!?

They even put FF XIII-2 on this list! What the frick?

Army_of_Darkness1501d ago

where's Folklore?! and if there are no exclusives on this list, why couldn't they just call it "my top 10 multiplatform RPGs one consoles"?!

HarryMasonHerpderp1501d ago

Folklore was a really underrated game.

himdeel1501d ago

I was going to click out but when I read no White Knight or Folklore I knew the list was bogus. Oh well...

Lucretia1501d ago

believe it or not ff13-2 was really good. far better than 13.

did you get to play it? i wasnt expecting much and was very pleased

MySwordIsHeavenly1501d ago

I played it. It was definitely better than the first one. I just don't think it was anywhere near as good as WKC.

nolifeking1501d ago

Being better than a turd isn't really saying much.

"Hey, at least this glass of piss is better than than turd sandwich."

Lucretia1501d ago

oh wow i didnt even notice that. very lame they didnt include WKC......those games were great. well aslong as its on our personal list right?

Dark souls may be my winner but as far as classic jrpgs, ff13-2, WKC, and star ocean are my favs....or nier.... plenty of good ones, just not as many as ps2
:(

really hope tales of xillia comes to america and they they make a ff13-3 since THAT ENDING was insane

Kur01501d ago

I'm a PS3 fan and an RPG fan and I find WKC to be absolutely awful.

ReservoirDog3161501d ago

Does it arguably not count as a traditional RPG? Maybe but there's no RPG I've enjoyed more than Valkyria Chronicles. I was one of the few that bought it day 1 and I'll be forever proud of that.

Dark Souls
Mass Effect 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Dragon Age Origins
Fallout 3
Final Fantasy XIII-2
Borderlands
Eternal Sonata
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Skyrim

That's their list and I just saved everyone from giving the site 10 hits. They went the hit monger route and put each game on its own page with a simple paragraph of what the game is below a half screen sized picture.

I disagree with any game that calls itself an RPG if the main form of gameplay is shooter based. That's not how RPG's started, it isn't how they progressed, and only recently has it come to pass. I call games like that shooters with RPG elements and/or a tacked on conversation system.

FFXIII-2 should NOT be on that list AT ALL. There are a f*ckton of better RPG's on the PS3 than FFXIII-2.

Hicken1501d ago

Crap list. Well, not crap, but not very good. Lacking Demon's Souls, White Knight Chronicles, and Valkyria Chronicles.

XIII-2 isn't bad, but on a list with what they have and what they lacked(the three I mentioned), it wouldn't be counted.

Omnislash1501d ago

Yeah theyre lacking Valyria Chronicles that game is awesome! Much better than Mass Erect....

LaChance1501d ago

Lost Odyssey is the the best RPG the PS3 never had.

-GametimeUK-1501d ago

Sure is. I would love to play that on my PS3. I could just get it for my 360, but I never commit to getting it.

I have hardly played any noteworthy PS3 RPG's and suggestions are more than welcome, but I enjoyed

Demons Souls
Dark Souls
Final Fantasy 13
Skyrim

I think Kingdoms of Amalur is going to have to be purchased.

HarryMasonHerpderp1501d ago

Its really not as great as everyone makes out.
The loading times in between battles was
really annoying.I thought tales of vesperia was better.

_Aarix_1501d ago (Edited 1501d ago )

Loading times? Your mean 5-7 seconds? The longest loading times I experienced were getting into cutscenes and those were only 10-12 seconds.

And yes it is as great as people make it out to be. This is the jrpg this generation needs more of.

HarryMasonHerpderp1501d ago (Edited 1501d ago )

A common complaint with reviewers were the loading times 5-7 seconds and 10-12 seconds is a long time if you just sit there,get a stop watch out and time how long it takes you will notice it drags out longer than you think.
It gets annoying after the first 500 random battles waiting around listening to my characters chat about nothing while my xbox is trying hard to process it all before i can actually take part in the battle.In fact random battles are very last gen in general especially ones that take ages to load.Also I really didn't like Jansen he wasn't funny at all and came across as just annoying.

I never said it was a bad game i did enjoy it
i thought the environments were cool and the story was great and i liked those little mini storys you could read (really wish they were in game though some of the mini storys were better than the main story)its just not the best JRPG this generation.

Like i said i preferred tales of vesperia
with its quick loading,no random battles (all the monsters are on screen) and a more interesting protagonist in my opinion.

aDDicteD1501d ago

surprised to see ff13-2 in the list
