9) Tales of Symphonia

8) Trace Memory

7) Hourglass of Summer

6) Final Fantasy IX

2) Anachronox

1) Ever 17: Out of Infinity

I have to admit, narrowing down my favorites of the decade was not easy. I wanted to include a cross-section of both RPGs and graphic adventures on various platforms, but in trying to be objective, I found that I had little room for many of my personal favorites. So, I tossed all objectivity out the window and formulated my list purely on instinct and gut feeling. This is not the best of the decade, but rather Neal Chandran's favorites of the decade.

I also found actually sitting down and starting my list overwhelming, so I started like this: Every top 10 RPG list needs to include a Final Fantasy title, so I just chose my favorite FF of the last decade, went from there, and my final list looks a little something like what you see above.

And just for fun, here are my three least favorite games of the last decade. I have nothing to say about them except that they're terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad games.

3) InuYasha: Secret of the Divine Jewel

2) Astonishia Story (PSP)

1) Lufia: Ruins of Lore (Game Boy Advance)
