10 of the best RPGs on PS3

We roll the dice on 10 of the best RPGs on PS3. From dying composers to leveling up up bionic legs, this is some of the best stat based action on PlayStation. (PS3)

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_Darkness  +   1206d ago
what a shitty List.
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"?!
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1206d ago
Folklore was a really underrated game.
himdeel  +   1206d ago
I was going to click out but when I read no White Knight or Folklore I knew the list was bogus. Oh well...
Lucretia  +   1206d 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
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1206d 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.
nolifeking  +   1205d ago
Being better than a turd isn't really saying much.

"Hey, at least this glass of piss is better than than turd sandwich."
Lucretia  +   1206d 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

I'm a PS3 fan and an RPG fan and I find WKC to be absolutely awful.
ReservoirDog316  +   1205d 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.

No exclusive :).
DragonKnight  +   1206d ago
Dark Souls
Mass Effect 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Dragon Age Origins
Fallout 3
Final Fantasy XIII-2
Eternal Sonata
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

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.

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.
Omnislash  +   1205d ago
Yeah theyre lacking Valyria Chronicles that game is awesome! Much better than Mass Erect....
LaChance  +   1206d ago
Lost Odyssey is the the best RPG the PS3 never had.
-GametimeUK-  +   1206d 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

I think Kingdoms of Amalur is going to have to be purchased.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1206d 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_  +   1205d 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.

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1205d 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.

surprised to see ff13-2 in the list
jessupj  +   1206d ago
Is it sad I have plated 8/10 of those games?
cogniveritas  +   1206d ago
Nothing wrong with that. Gamers like to game.
j-blaze  +   1206d ago
lol you can play them all on 360, making a list of best RPGs on "PS3" without including any "exclusives" is laughable....and pathetic too
Wintersun616  +   1206d ago
How are they any less "on PS3" if they are on Xbox360 too? "On PS3" =/= "PS3 exclusive".
Robotronfiend  +   1206d ago
I double checked the list, no Disgaea 3 or 4. I think this is an oversight along with no WKC 1 or 2.
OMEGAZONE  +   1206d ago
Theres only 2 RPGs on that list, where is Star Ocean The Last Hope International and White Knight Chronicles 2? HyperDimension Neptunia?
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1206d ago
Nice to see XIII-2 on the list. from the title of the article I thought they were PS3 exclusice Rpgs but not a single one was.
Blastoise  +   1206d ago
Demons souls > Dark souls.
Also its a PS3 exclusive so it would have been better suited for this list. Also why no Disgaea?
noctrnl13  +   1205d ago
No Demon Souls, no White Knight Chronicles, no Disgaea? Lol this list is a fail.
baodeus  +   1205d ago
Well dark soul and demon soul is kinda of the same except dark soul is harder and well larger. I think WKC is crap compare to any game listed on that list (even if they are multiplat).

They should have added games like Valkyrie Chronicals, Folklore and Disgaea onto that list, too much WRPG.

Given, the JRPG list haven't been stellar on this gen consols like it was back in PS2 days.
TheDivine  +   1205d ago
Didint know the ps3 had 10 rpgs. They do have folklore and valkyria chronicles which rock but the rest are multiplats or garbage like WKC 1 and 2.

The Ps3 really let me down this gen with rpgs. Sony went after western gamers where MS went after japenese gamers. Very backwards eh?
