Lol, the Best RPG (not even JRPG) of ALL TIME?!!

Don't get me wrong, it's an AMAZING Game, but hardly the best of all time, it doesn't have the best music, the best combat system, the best story or the best Characters, a really amazing game, but hardly the best RPG of ALL time

yeah, there's no way. I haven't played the re-release yet but Xeno 2 was phenomenal. However, even that probably doesn't make the Top 10 JRPGs of all time. And that doesn't take into account western RPGs such as The Witcher. Maybe I could slide Xeno 2 in the top 10 but I'd likely be hard pressed to. There's just far too many great JRPGs out there. Suikoden, some of the FF titles, Persona, SMT, Dark Souls, Lost Odyssey, Shadow Hearts Covenant, and so many others. Regardless of ones opinion that list doesn't even scratch the surface of classic, truly great JRPGs.

I'm not going to argue the score. though I doubt I'd place a 10 on it based off what I've seen. At the same time Xeno 2 was, imo, a 9-10 so the original could be, at the very least, up there. But there's absolutely no way this is the best RPG ever unless this the only RPG one has played.

Excellent critical reception, excellent community reception(imo), and some of the highest user scores on metacritic(so far, based on sorting all games ever by user review score). Even critics give it a very high review score, despite it being full priced at 60 dollars and being already released on two other consoles with separate launches and despite the resolution. That doesn't just happen, there is something special here.

Woah there I like the game a lot but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, it streamlines a lot of things that made classic JRPGs frustrating for new players but it lacks the depth of the classics.
