The RPG genre has had a lot of ups-and-downs over the years, especially in it's most famous franchise - Final Fantasy - but which are the best RPG games?
Hard to tell, so many great RPGs to choose from Final fantasy 7, 10, 12, Dragon quest 8, 11, Chrono trigger, Pokemon series, Souls series, Witcher 3, Skyrim, Legend of dragoon, Mass effect, Ninokuni 1, 2 ...
I like the JRPGs a lot more than the western RPGS. The only western rpg I liked was the Witcher series and the first Mass Effect
Some more good western RPGs too . Morrowind , Baldurs Gate , Icewindale , Neverwinter Nights. There are More JRPGS overall I like but there are some great western RPGs
Too many JRPGs barely qualify as RPGs at all. If the story is linear it is not an RPG.
Phantasy Star IV, Skies of Arcadia, Panzer Dragoon Saga
Deus Ex should have made the list
KotOR should be there.
Yeah, loved that series. KoToR 2 was my favourite.
The only one that needs to be on here that everyone forgets about - Legend of Legaia
Vagrant Story is another most forgot about. Still hope for a remake one day.
Vagrant story is square soft at one of their best. I agree ashley riot needs a full remake comeback.
Too good, and cool mechanics.
witcher series combat was trash, part 2 and 3 first halves were a megabore, but part 3 story got really good later; nice world too.
agree, id also debate that W3 is more of an action adventure rather than rpg....i want to be a rogue or an archer or a full on magic user.....W3 forces you down a set path with a few options, hardly rpg....would rather have seen divinity 2 on there
I tried to play witcher 3 too and can't figure why not too many people complain about the combat. its terrible
Literally horrible Combat, easy as well, I beat it on hard and barely had an issue. Just shield up, hit, roll, repeat lol. It's clunky as heck too and he missing half the time due to spinning. Also potions and traps are useless
"Role Playing Game Games"
Tough to limit it down to 7. I'd add one of the Personas to the list myself, although I can't argue against the rest.
Cool blog bro.
None of the Ultima games? Fallout 2?
I'll leave this one to pure opinion lol. I'll keep it at that. Planescape, Morrowind, Kotor 2, New Vegas, Baldur's Gate, Wasteland 2/3, Tyranny, Pillars of Eternity. I'd go on.
Final Fantasy Tactics
No Baldur's Gate. No Planescape: Torment. No Fallout. Pfffffft, bullshit much?
No Xenogears or Xenosaga trilogy or Legend of Dragoon glad to see ME 2 after touching after touching Cyberpunk I think I will avoid the Witcher franchise even though I have never played it.
Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2. Xenoblade Chronicles X is great but I wouldn't consider it one of the greatest of all time.
