Top 5 RPGs Of All Time - there are so many RPGs to choose from, but here are our top 5 RPGs of all time. Some are new, some are old, but all are timeless.
FFXIII-2 🤨 That's the FF game you picked?
Zelda isn't an rpg. Its a 3rd person adventure game tbh.
It's a great game. I liked it more than 10, 7, and 13. Maybe not 6 though.
It's a good game, but I wouldn't classify it as one of the top 5 of all time.
@rainslacker of course. Nier Automata, Kotor, Kotor 2, Pillars, Pillars 2, Tyranny, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Planescape Torment, and many others are better.
As someone who actually liked the game, it's nowhere near the best, even in its series.
They were fine to me with the first 3 even if they're not in my top 10. BUT then they lost me with FFXIII-2 when it's not even the best game in the XIII games lol and xenoblade 2 is good but that's a heavy reach, even as a opinion lol. Unless they haven't played many old ones
Firstly this should be a list of jrpgs not just rpgs. Secondly that list is horrific. Bar final fantasy and persona NO jrpg in the last decade should be on any great list. Simply cant compete with: Ff7 Chrono trigger/cross Xenogears Ff6 Persona 4/5
Am I the only person whose top 10 list has Shadow hearts: Covenant?
Five is WAAYYYYYYYYY too small a list, should have been more of MY top five or whatever
yay... 2 games i actually would have rated top 5 too... guess we're making progress. ;-)
Imo FF-XIII is better than FF-XIII 2.
Indeed, I actually really liked 13, even if the internet claims that I shouldn't. 13-2 was a convoluted mess constantly retreading old ground bouncing around time frames. And 13-3 was my least favorite, outside of the final boss battle, it was a really limp game with crap game design (stupid timer).
Agreed. Though FF-XIII had it's flaws & the story was a mess though I got the gist of it.I enjoyed everything else about FF-XIII which were the characters especially Lightning,Sazh & Fang,the production,graphics,the fast & furious battle system & the amazing OST. FF-XIII 2 had no summons,only 2 human players,& I didn't like the catch enemies to fight along side you gimmick & there was basically no Lightning. The 3rd installment was bad, especially the timer. I was really hoping for a FF-XIII PS4/Pro enhanced remaster.
Did you literally just pick the only 5 you have ever played? Cause this is a horrendous list. 13-2, hell the lightning saga in general is the absolute worst entry in the series. Xenosaga is okay, but Xenogears is light years beyond it. I'll give you chrono trigger. Super Mario rpg belongs in a top 20 rpg list not top 5. A proper top 5 would be #1 ff7, #2, Chrono Trigger,# 3 Suikoden 2, #4, Wild Arms #5 Xenogears. (I'm leaving witcher 3 out only because it's not traditional rpg but yes witcher 3 is god tier)
Only shit, this person never played RPG's for sure.
lol "top 5 rpgs of all time" with an image of ff13... im sure this list is garbage
That's what I thought when I saw FF 13 thumbnail slapped on it. I'd rather play Call of Duty with an Asian language pretending it's a jrpg
I do know about Super Mario RPG and FF XIII-2....of course this is one persons opinion so its all good.
Thanks, I hate it
Tough list and very subjective. I do agree that these are great titles and should be experienced if you're into RPGs, but my top 5 would be a little different. Either way, keep on gaming!
RPG's are for leftys
I would put Xenogears over FF13-2 on that list Wild Arms 4 and 5, Tales of Vesperia also should have on that list
I'd put any Xeno game over FF13-2. I like 13-2 well enough, but certainly not the best. I still love Xenosaga, and go back and forth between if I think gears or saga is better. Xenoblade and X are also good, but I don't feel they live up to gears or saga despite being a variation on the same themes.
I'll have to try Xenoblade never played that one
< Insert Charlie Murphy laughing Gif > Here's a better list. 1. FF7 2. EarthBound 3. Chrono Trigger 4. FF Tactics 5. FF8
I wonder how many of these "of all time" lists we have had in the last few months.
Top 5 list of "of all time" lists incoming.
Xenosaga and Xenoblade? mkaay then lol.
Since we are talking about RPGs I think some western type RPGs should have been on that list such as Dragons Dogma and The Elder Scrolls V. Also why is Persona 5 missing from the list when it is one of the best of all time.
It seems prudent. But, some people only like one or the other more. I tend to lean towards JRPG's myself, and I can't think of any western RPG that would make the list. Not because of their stories, but more their game play isn't as interesting to me, and I often find that the main characters seem less invested in the story overall.
5 games that are not even the top 10 list
1 ff6 2 ff7 3 ff8 4 ff9 5 ff10 the golden years its that easy, then there is xenogears Alundra fftactics chrono cross Skies of Arcadia wild arms star ocean Grandia Vagrant Story legend of dragoon Breath of Fire 3 & IV Suikoden 1 & 2 Baldur's Gate and so may more, and thats the shit list you picked.... lmao....
I am going to make a top 5 list of the top 5 lists of top rpg’s ever.
