Are we still listing top 10s?  I hope I'm not derailing the thread :) 

Yeah my definition of RPGs include soul games...

10. Legend of Dragoon
9. Xenosaga
8. Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
7. Tales of the Abyss
6. Final Fantasy X
5. Star Ocean 3
4. Persona 3
3. Tales of Graces F
2. Final Fantasy VII
1. Dark Souls

Last one was really hard - I'm torn between FF8/9, Suikoden 3, Resonance of Fate, Persona 4, Dragon age Origins, etc etc...

BTW, that's much hard one to guess avatar wise!

Baten kaitos origins though, oddly never beaten that game or the first one - come to think of it the only rpg I finished on the gamecube was tales of symphonia

I just realized I never gave a list.

This is not concrete -- my memories and tastes change a lil bit every day, and that effect is cumulative across time. ie -- I'll think this list is wrong in 2-3 years.

I'm picking 10 games that fall under RPGFan's scope of coverage. The numbering is NOT a ranking. Consider them all in a bucket of "10-best," no clear winner. I'll list them in alphabetical order.

999 (VLR is basically tied, but 999 is what started my love of the whole genre)
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy IX
Lunar 2: Eternal Blue (Complete)
Persona 3 (preferably P3P ver)
Star Ocean: The Second Story
Vagrant Story
Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim (Felghana and Origin are basically tied with this game, as they all run the same engine and have great exploration, music, etc)

DAMNIT RAMZA YOU TOO?! WHERE'S FF TACTICS!?

I know it's all my schtick here, but I am actually saddened by this in your case Ramza, mostly cuz I love tactics. I just needed to capslock shout beforehand cuz, you know, lulz.

Here's my ten:

Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy VI
Seiken Densetsu III
Final Fantasy Tactics
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Skies of Arcadia
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride
Persona 4
Diablo Dos
Dragon Age: Oranges

If Castlevania doesn't count, then replace it with Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.

...I don't know who that guy is...I really want to, though...
The only cool character in star ocean 4.

Why is it that everytime I see a cool redhead (who's totally way more awesome than the main character will ever be), the game is all like: "Oh, you'd like to have him in your party, wouldn't you? That's too bad! Guest party member is all you're going to get, if you're lucky!"

One ninja in particular will always stand out in my mind as the quintessential start of "cool character I perma-want" trend. Discovering I could save and keep him as a member was a hallmark of my childhood. Heck, its probably why I became I Ninja when I grew up :D
I am more a battlefield than a Ninja.

In no particular order:

1) Lunar: Silver Star [Sega CD ver - MUCH better music; darker plot than "Complete"]
2) Lunar: Eternal Blue [Sega CD ver - Longer, more challenging dungeons & battles than "Complete"]
3) Final Fantasy IV
4) Dragon Quest VIII
5) Fallout 3
6) Final Fantasy VI
7) Phantasy Star IV
8) Skies of Arcadia: Legends
9) Deus Ex
10) Secret of Mana

Not sure if they have to be in order:

1. Suikoden 2
2. Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne
3. Nier
4. Grandia 1
5. Shadow Hearts
6. Legend of Mana
7. Final Fantasy 9
8. Xenoblade
9. Skies of Arcadia: Legends
10. Pool of Radiance

I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

My 2nd post in about 6 months. I'm a lazy lurker but lists draw me out :)

1. Final Fantasy 7
2. Dragon Quest 8
3. Grandia (or maybe is was Grandia 2, for the love of me I cant recall which one I played to death. Twice. It was the one where the giant eyeball appears outside your room at the inn at night about 6hrs in. For some reason that always stuck in my head)
4. Breath of Fire 3
5. Atelier Escha and Logy ("Let's do your best!")
6.Tales of Graces F
7.Eternal Sonata
8.Skies of Arcadia
9.Ni No Kuni
10.Alundra

I look forward to seeing your final chart, scarface :D

Me too. I mostly chose this one cos I liked the picture. Never liked Chrono Trigger as much as the general JRPG population. Partly because we didn't get it in Europe until the DS version.


3. Grandia (or maybe is was Grandia 2, for the love of me I cant recall which one I played to death. Twice. It was the one where the giant eyeball appears outside your room at the inn at night about 6hrs in. For some reason that always stuck in my head)


It's been a LONGGGG time since I played them. But that sounds like Grandia 2. Grandia 1 is the one with people with magical wings and a giant wall (I should write box descriptions).
