IMO, remove Fable 2 and DOS1(great game but 2 was better), add Secret of Mana, DOS2, FE3H, and Dragons Dogma.

Some would argue if Zelda was a true RPG or not, but if it is, LTTP and either OOT, WW, or MM should be on there. Also P5R is a big upgrade over standard Persona 5. For my personal tastes, I would also include PaperMario:TTYD....also I loved DQXI, but IMO Tales of Arise is better...not sure if I would include either though, when we are leaving out so many other great jrpgs.

I don't think Zelda games have enough character progression to make them an RPG.

FE3H was a very good game, too. Serious question though: is it better than all the others?

zacfoldor12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Fair point about Zelda, I really see both sides.

As for FE...good question. The author lists FF:Tactics, which is my favorite game in the strategy genre...but for just Fire Emblem games...I think some would prefer Awakenings, perhaps, but 3H is definite a high point for the series. For my personal tastes, I think my favorites are 3H and Path of Radiance, but I would have a hard time choosing. Awakenings and then 3H brought the series popularity in the west, so they get points for that as well, in my book. So is 3H the best one? Depends on who you ask. I'd say, it might be.

Allegedly Square is supposed to be making a Remaster of Chrono Cross for PS and possibly Switch / PC / PS4, that's supposed to be revealed in December (VGAs I guess)/.

Mayaswell just make your own list at this point lol, you know these are opinion right? What would the point of these lists even be if everyone thought the same?

Omegasyde12d ago

Absolutely loved dragons dogma. Bought it twice for PS4 and PS3.

Only downside was despite the world being big the side quests weren’t that great. But that combat, leveling jobs, and pawn system made up for it. Dungeons were great too.

Dragon Quest 11 isn't even the best Dragon Quest game, it's a good game, but not the best. Dragon Quest 8 is superior to it in almost every way.

thorstein12d ago

...and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4....

I am biased.

Sometimes I forget how much of a powerhouse the PS1 was

7Cris712d ago

Basically PSX RPGs haha.

TheRealTedCruz12d ago

I don't play too many jrpgs, and I'm trying to diversify a bit.

Outside of FF and Dragon Quest, what two games from that list do you most recommend someone trying? Doesn't matter if it's a sequel to another game or not.

Jiub12d ago

IMO: Chrono Trigger and Suikoden II

thorstein12d ago

Octopath Traveler is really good.

BlaqMagiq112d ago

You have Threads of Fate on there which means you get my ultimate respect. Underrated and overlooked.

Exvalos12d ago

Man your dang near spot on absolute spot on choices

Epicor12d ago

I like your top 6 a lot. I don't have the same orders but all those games would make my top 10 RPG list most likely. Number 1 for me is FFIX. It holds a special place in my heart and imo it's the perfect Final Fantasy game.

In addition I would give special mention to some western RPG's as well: Skyrim and Mass Effect 2 were iconic games. Out of JRPG's I'd like to add Disgaea 2 on that list.

Some of my personal favorites are Planescape: Torment, New Vegas, Morrowind, Kotor 2, Wasteland 3, Witcher 2, Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, Deus Ex, Disco Elysium and Vampyr.

As far as jrpg, while I'm not as big a fan as I am for Western RPGs, I love Persona 3 - 5, Dragon Quest 8 and 11, Rogue Galaxy, Final Fantast 6,7, and 12; and Lost Odyssey.

LoveSpuds12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Some quality taste in games there squire.

I'd add some Baldurs Gate 2 and Neverwinter Nights from back in the day too.

TheRealTedCruz12d ago

Should have added BG2. Played through it many times over the years.

Never could get into Neverwinter Nights though. Not sure why.

Omegasyde12d ago

Loved rouge galaxy. Fav game from Level 5.

ManMarmalade12d ago

Legend of Dragoon #1 game of all time for me
