I'm not discounting it's greatness, but for the love of all that's kinky and filthy why is SotN on this list? It along with all the Zelda titles is not an RPG.

If memory serves me right, L blocks victory had something to do with somethingawful goons (or some other large online community, can't remember). It was their way of mocking the whole voting thing. Worked like a charm though, and I'm fairly sure a lot of outside people picked up on it too. Heck, Id vote for L block if I had an account there.

I don't think what i said was too much at all. When i posted that this thread said deciding the "best rpg" lists like that only bring out morons and fanboys who fight over what they think is "best" when it's really only a matter of taste. Some people will tell you Big Rigs is the best game ever, doesn't mean we're all supposed to agree with it.

I admit the original title was not appropriate, that's why i changed it. Of course each player has their own favorite games. However, I think a ranking like this one might be of some use : 1) It provides an exhaustive list of existing RPGs 2) It can give an idea of the quality of the games (with the limitations that are discussed here, when I look at the list, I don't see any dumb game in the top 100)

bullshit and bad for you.
It is still a bit too much in my opinion as i hardly understand how the existence of this list is gonna be bad for me in any possible way^^. At worst, it is useless.

T blocks rock. 

I totally agree, T blocks saved my life so many times...

I don't think I should be allowed to vote in this at all. I think The World Ends With You is the best RPG out there. Oh god, it feels so wrong to say that.

Why not ? Tastes are tastes. Besides, even if not the best for me, this one was quite refreshing.

I'm not discounting it's greatness, but for the love of all that's kinky and filthy why is SotN on this list? It along with all the Zelda titles is not an RPG.

My definition of an RPG is, I admit, a VERY large one and includes the action/aventure and turn based startegy games with some RPG elements.

The only up side to a list like this that I can see, is having lesser known titles become visible to a mainstream player base. Take a player that knows nothing but Final Fantasy, he or she sees Shadow Hearts on the list with a few votes and might decide that its worth looking into.

Why is Dark Souls on a list of games for people to vote for when the game isn't out for months? That's just dumb.

Maybe because the game is that good? Dunno.

Because we want it so bad that it HAS to be good. Or we'll have a temper tantrum.

There's also a good chance its being confused with Demons Souls. If I remember right, there is also a commercial indie title going by that name.

Then where the hell are the Ratchet and Clank games they need to be on the list too. You gain XP and money for killing enemies and your stats and weapons level up. By your definition Ratchet and Clank IS an RPG! and what about No More Heroes, you can upgrade your health and attack power in that series too?

Edit: Nevermind they are now. #505 and 504

Also I'm sorry but lulz at putting Dark Souls on the list.

I personally favor a broad umbrella definition for RPG. Mainly, it's no fun to split hairs on fringe titles. But also some "action adventure" games like Red Dead Redemption have far more compelling narratives than a good chunk of classic RPGs.

So if Mega Man Legends is an RPG, then so is SotN.


That's just me though.

SOTN is not an RPG. Neither is Zelda.

Just because it is not the game you are thinking about.

Maxximum is right. Based on the release date, it is the indie game.

Then where the hell are the Ratchet and Clank games they need to be on the list too. You gain XP and money for killing enemies and your stats and weapons level up. By your definition Ratchet and Clank IS an RPG! and what about No More Heroes, you can upgrade your health and attack power in that series too?

Didn't know these games contain RPG elements. Thanks for adding them to the list.


I know that considering Zelda or SotN as RPGs may bother some players but not considering them as RPGs may bother some others... This debate is endless...

I really have to ask. Looking at your post count was your only reason for even coming to this board to promote your list? Not to be an ass or anything, but seriously that kind of makes you spammer.

Dark Souls is going to be awesome. That said, I wouldn't vote for it two months ahead of its release just because I enjoyed the hell out of the E3 demo.
