"Role playing games leave lasting impressions on gamers for a few reasons. Those with the patience for long and engrossing games are rewarded with rich story lines, a sustained challenge, and deep character development. While it may be true that these games are not for some - many gamers are simply looking for a short, action packed foray into gaming - a good RPG is like a good book, in the sense that experience is personal and unique, and if they aren't carefully crafted they have no chance of holding your interest. Here are ten games that got it right in a big way. Ladies and gentleman, the ten greatest RPGs of all time."
