When I posted on this thread I didn't come thinking, "oh, that's my favorite RPG or game" but I did come thinking about the 100% game.
The difference, even if you like a game more you realize it isn't perfect ( or as the title suggests 100%).

I said my 100% were Half-Life 2 and Wind Waker, and while I do like them a lot and they are among my favorites, I don't put neither of them in front of Metal Gear 3, Final Fantasy VII and X, Resident Evil 4 and Shadow of the Colossus.

A good example for this would be the one I just mentioned, Shadow of the Colossus. While it's amazing in almost every aspect, it does have (or did if we do not count the new release) a really bad frame rate. It would need a lot more to make it bad, but as the title suggests, it stays short of a 100%, even if a better game overall.

That's how I feel like when a game is to get 100%.

And this is why numeric scores are pointless.

I'm going to have to go with FFVI although a few others come to mind.  I couldn't put the damned thing down for a looong time and I never had quite the same feeling with an rpg as I did with that game.

Too many games, too little time.  Plus some 100%'s are pretty ridiculous.  I'd say Tales, but there are so many fucking items, by games end of some of my 70-80 hours play throughs my weapon's collection will only be at 80% as I wonder wtf I missed.
 Hell, even my normal items (healing shit) was missing a few, dunno how.  Can't rmember what title this was.

No 100% games exist to me except one but its a horror game.

However a few near perfect RPGs are Suikoden II,SMT Digital Devil Saga 1/2,Fallout 2 and Deus Ex.

I don't think I've ever played an RPG I'd consider 100% greatness. The only games I'd consider perfect are a few of the Lucas Arts style graphic adventures from the 90's. A Link To The Past is close for me, as is Tales Of Symhonia (Gamecube version). RPG's have so many things going on it's hard to find one where you don't have a gripe about something.

FFXIII, because it manages to get everything consistently wrong. Might not be in the right direction, but its still 100% damn it!
Yes, that was a joke...put those torches and pitchforks down.

Seriously though,
I don't think any game deserves a 100%. But I suppose Id go for the first Suikoden if I had to choose, not because its a fantabulous miracle game with no flaws, but because I beat it in nearly one sitting, and that's when I didn't even like turn based RPGs (I actually bought Suikoden believing it was a Zelda like action game). Its also one of very few games I actually bothered to beat more than once.

NOW PLAYING:
Hearthstone: I don't like card games, and yet I enjoy this.
Chaos on Deponia: Beat the first one, went straight for the second one, that says a lot.
F.E.A.R.: Perseus Mandate: May as well.

I'll join the bandwagon and say that I have not played a game that I think deserves a 100%, but there are two I consider really close.

The first is Baldur's Gate 2. Everything about it I loved, but the best parts were the characters and writing. I remember getting giddy when a dialogue box would pop up and one of the chars would banter with another, or having my char develop a romance with Aerie, or having all the chars give a little speech to the main antagonist right before the final battle. These things wow'd me more so than any other game has, with only the Mass Effect series collectively coming close.

The second is Persona 3. Same song and dance; I loved the chars, the story, but it was the presentation that really sold me. Everything about that game oozed the running themes of hipness, youth, vigor, excitement and uncertainty. From the music, to the battle animations, to menu screen, this game had more style than anything else I  had ever played, and the only game that I think beats it is Persona 4, but I have fonder memories of 3. Persona 3 is the only game I wish I could "forget" so I could go back and re-experience it all over again with fresh eyes.

For rpg's the closest to %100 for me would be SMT devils summoner Soul Hackers, but I couldn't give %100 to any rpg. In reality the closest to %100 for any games at the time for me are Super Mario 64 and Grand theft Auto 3

Easy answer for me... I've been saying it for decades.

It's Final Fantasy IV (any version, really).

- An ATB battle system that forces you to act fairly quickly, giving the feeling of danger.
- A totally balanced party of fighting, white & black magic, and other skills. (Well-rounded)
- The first, best storyline that I've ever seen in a game, that moved me 21 years ago..
- Interesting aspects that gives the game flavor such as different airships and the hovercraft, three total surfaces to explore, etc.

It's no wonder why it was remade so many times.

It's hard to say if any game could ever deserve 100% but the best RPGs I've ever played would be Growlanser Generations and Witcher 2.  Those games are definitely 99.9% in my book.   I love when an RPG allows the player to make some decisions that actually have significance, including multiple story branches or endings, rather than following a linear path.
