I'm really confused by this thread - you've listed publishers alongside developers.

They have vastly different responsibilities when it comes to games.

No, not really. I've tried the one that most people consider the best, TTYD, and it was horrible. I hate the series. KOTOR was also GOTY in 2003, and I don't think any game in the Paper Mario series has ever won GOTY.

i need to get one of the KOTR games but i doubt its the best bioware game.

Well, if you want a BioWare game, you have to get the first. BioWare didn't develop KOTOR2, Obsidian did. It isn't as good either.

Plus, BioWare is working on a MMORPG, The Old Republic, that many say has a chance to defeat, or come close to defeating WoW. I don't know if it counts or not because it is online, but I would still consider it a RPG.

And I just noticed that in the original post under Nintendo it doesn't mention Pokemon. It should.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

@Waltz: yeah, i'm starting to realize that, myself... if you'd like to clear things up for me, a bit, please, by all means.

@RWP: done, and as you can see that i included WoW, i'd say The Old Republic counts.

Hmmm... I was confused as well so when I mentioned ATLUS I decided to merit their developing and publishing skills and let the angry responses sort everything out, lol.

@Magi: i know Bethseda has run across my ears before, but i can't think of a thing they've created. and this is the first time i've ever heard of SSi.... i'll put them on the list, though if someone could give me a couple games they've done.

Bethesda does:
Elder Scrolls (Oblivion, etc)
Fallout
not really prolific as far as rpg's go, but they're 2 pretty groovy ones.

SSi shouldn't really be on that list. They were one of the pioneers of rpg's, namely with the original Dungeons and Dragons pc games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Strategic_Simulations,_I...

Namco, Bethseda, and SSi have been added to the list. so far it seems like a predominantly Square-Enix/ BioWare competition, but we've got a few other votes here and there for just about everything but Blizzard. no WoW fans on NL?

@shingi: not heard of either of those... so perhaps they're not too well known as whole.... but if you find them worthy of mention, on the list they go. i don't really want it to be a list of everyone who's ever made an RPG, just the truly noteworthy ones. but.... additions shall be made.

They're 360 games made by a new studio Mistwalker which is founded by the creator of the final fanasty after he left square enix. Lost oddesy is basicly final fanasty and blue dragon is simlar to the dragon quest games.
