What is your favorite RPG game of all time?

*Doesn't have be on a Nintendo system
*Keep you list short if you have more than one favorite
*State the system you played it on

For me, it is Tales of Symphonia on the GC and recently Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2.

For the PS2 I have a four way tie Tales of the Abyss,Rogue Galaxy,Final Fantasy 10, Dragon Quest VIII
For the XBOX - Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire,Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Dreamcast - Grandia 2

Chrono Trigger (SNES/DS)
Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA) - does this count or is it too action/platform-oriented, too RPG-lite?

I remenber playing and completing Tactics Ogre on a SNES emulator - despite the corrupted shop screen and despite it being all in Japanese. Even then I feel it is the best game (I prefer RPGs generally) I've ever played. I bought Tactics Ogre on the GBA and it wasn't as good (and the battery died). I'm so eager to play the SNES version again, but I'd rather not dabble with emulators any more.

As for games I own, I'd say Skies of Arcadia (Gamecube) is my favourite, closely followed by FFVII (on the PSone).

The Kingdom Hearts series [PS2].
Mario & Luigi series [GBA/NDS].
Chrono Trigger [NDS version].



I used to play a lot of RPGs because of their epic stories. Then I realized I wasn't having true "fun" with them.

Therefore my favorite RPGs are the Mario one (except SPM, which isn't bad, just not as fun or polished as the others). These games don't hide behind epic plots and endless leveling. They just focus on fun and hijinks.

My vote is with Super Mario RPG.

Ever since it first came out, I wish they would make a more direct sequel to it, rather than just the Paper Marios.

Paper Mario, or Super Mario RPG it's more of a classic RPG. I don't play RPGs very often.



Either N64 Paper Mario or Skies of Arcadia on Dreamcast.




1. Chrono Trigger (SNES)
2. Terranigma (SNES)
3. Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES)

Plain old gamer :)


Oh man, there are so many classics that it's hard to make a short list.

  1. Pokemon series (It gets a lot of points for introducing me to games)
  2. Golden Sun (Fantastic story, unique puzzles, tons of customization, and turned-based gameplay, the only battle system RPGs should have)
  3. The Mother series (simply fantastic)
  4. Paper Mario 1&2 (simple yet fun to play)
  5. Mario&Luigi (I despise the platforming elements of it, and it made me not play it again but dang, it's freaking hilarious!)

And the worst RPG I've played has to be Super Mario RPG, and since I'm too lazy to type why I hate it,

That's why you're still a kid.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.


I hate almost all Japanese RPGs but a few (Paper Mario, Mario RPG, and slim few others) but the Western style I enjoy.
Baldur's Gate, KOTOR (not KOTOR 2), Mass Effect and Fallout 3 all would be my faves.
There are also a number of older PC RPGs I like but my memory seems to failing as I can't remember their names.

Final Fantasy IV on gba
Final Fantasy IX on Playstation
Dragon quest VIII on Playstation 2
Final Fantasy a2 on Dslite



Baldur's Gate is an awesome series I like that as well. I think I have played it on PS2, GC, and the PC.

Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal for GBC, can't wait for the DS remake. One of my favorite games of all time and definitely the best Pokémon game to date.

Other than Pokémon i'm not a fan of the genre.

Any Pokemon obviously, but the Mario RPGs are my favorites.

Mario is my homeboy!
