Keeping in mind that this is a reader poll, not a consumer survey, so the market doesn't really reflect those results other than Dragon Quest and Pokemon both being in the top 3.

Glad to see the Mother series on there.

There is nothing here...except for the stuff I just typed...

I second that. I love the Mother series. I played through it for the first time this year and loved it immensely.

I guess it's all about number of entries, RPG series with just a few entries(and hardly any remasters/remakes) have very little chance.

Not exactly. Monster Hunter is pretty prolific, with plenty of spinoffs and ultimate versions.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Nah it's a reader poll for favorite JRPG series. Given that, it's not surprising that Final Fantasy placed so high, even though a FF game hasn't sold great in Japan since FFX 15 years ago.

That might also explain why main series SMT placed higher than Persona, Pokemon placed lower than you would imagine, being by far the most popular JRPG series worldwide, and Yokai Watch didn't place at all. Famitsu readership is a specific audience.

I didn't mean the order of the games on the list, just that all the series on it have many entries accross different generations. So series with just a few entries accross one or two generations and no remakes or spinoffs had no chance to reach the list.

There have been 4 Persona games, only two of which were actually popular and were released in the same generation, and that made the top 10 list.

There have been many more Persona games, there were 3 on PS1(there are two Persona 2 games), two and a half(P3:FES) on PS2, the 3(4 in Japan) PSP ports/remasters, P4 & Dancing All Night on Vita, Persona Q on 3DS and two Persona fighting games on PS3&360 . Plus it also has several other mobile games in Japan.

Only surprise is that Persona isn't higher. I mean, the series didn't become big until P3, but it got insanely popular from there on

i'm shocked that Fire Emblem isn't there at all seeing how its extremely popular in Japan only.

my 3ds friend code is 1461-7634-1658

creativity is the insane possibility.

Maybe they didn't want to include TRPGs. Oh well. At least they can be included in the Top 10 TRPGs list.

Japan only? It sells pretty well elsewhere too, most games in the series have sold more copies in North America. Outside of Japan, it doesn't really sell as badly as most people think.

So either this was postal votes or Famitsu have a ridiculously small audience!

The only western RPG that sold more than 4 copies in Japan was the Witcher 3 (no idea why). The rest completely tank. Japan doesn't buy western games in general. Except Minecraft.
