I wonder if/when the true Shin Megami Tensei IV will happen? :)

It did happen. It's called Strange Journey.

You know, I actually got quite a bit of enjoyment out of Deep Labyrinth back in the dark days of the DS's early life, before games like Etrian Odyssey made it completely obsolete. :P

I was just about to point it.
But like the other guy, I'm a little disappointed, just a little. I was enjoying most of it but the dungeons make it so much of a chore.
Honestly I think that I'm disappointed is the the game could have been more balanced. By balanced I mean a better mix between story, combat and exploration. And for me, the immersion is not as good as Nocturne, SJ feels like a really complicated map. I keep playing it just looking at the bottom screen, barely looking at the environments. Maybe if the dungeons were shorter I could feel more pulled in because the story is really good as far as I've seen.

Excellent top 3.

The only thing that annoying me was the position of 2 or 3 games and that you put P3 and 4 on the same list. That was redundant to say the least.

But like I said before, excellent top 3. *claps*

Are the SMT games really that good? I am guilty of having played very little SMT :(.

I wonder what I'm missing out on.

I'm surprised SMT:Nocturne didn't make it, I always got the impression everyone here loved it to death.

I can't say I didn't try to vote it on!

But honestly... I'm stoked to have the DDS games as #1. The rest of the list could be Kingdom Hearts for all I care (kidding, kidding...)

The dungeons really do slow down SJ a bit, I find. The story is interesting enough, but I just need a lil more patience in my life, haha.

I also believe that they were originally gonna make it SMTIV, but don't actually consider SJ to be IV in the end. Dunno, I think I read that somewhere. Like I always say, I'd love to see a IV - or mainline SMT entry, whatever - on the PS3, just as awesome as Nocturne was.

Kind of stunned you guys haven't played Nocturne. It is THE best RPG on the PS2, IMO.

There's nothing quite like it, and there never will be.

Digital Devil Saga is a fine alternative, though I prefer Nocturne for many reasons, part of which is the minimalist style. You wouldn't think it has much plot at a glance; but it rewards reading between the lines and exploring the meanings behind the sparse dialogue.

I don't think there is anything on that top 20 list I could deny as being worthy of being on it. Of course, I don't like some of those games, Kingdom Hearts to name one.


It breaks my heart to see Mana Khemia in the Hall of Shame list, because I love that game so much, though the PSP port does sound 20 kinds of awful.

3. Lunar: Dragon Song

No nocturne?! What the hell guys?! The game is a contender for nš1! Most people actually think it's better than DDS, myself included.
Swap both KH games for nocturne and demon's souls and the list is perfect.

I don't like the Persona/DDS series all that much, or at all, so the last five were "meh". They weren't that good unless you were a supreme hardcore player that enjoys micro-management.

I felt the list was missing Valkyria Chronicles and Tales of the Abyss. And so glad to see FFXII didn't make it. :)

DDS had very little micro-management, so I don't know what you mean there.

Loved Nocturne, but liked other games more. 

And like Liz, the entire list could be Kingdom Hearts for all I care because Ever17 made the top 20.  EVER17!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fair enough but the fact that it isn't the top 20 (!) is weird, it feels like you forgot to put it in or something lol

I too played Nocturne and Demon's Souls, and were both great, but not amongst my favorites. Too much tight competition for me for my top 10 spot.
