RPGs are such a popular genre whats your favourite one for the Wii? My personal favorite and my first game for Wii is Super Paper Mario.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

That's not really an RPG. It was fun though, aside from the absurdly long and often boring dialog.
There unfortunately don't seem to be many good RPGs on Wii, though I haven't had a chance to try anyway, so I can't say definitively. The RPG seems to be the DS's domain.

My favorite Wii RPGs are Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn and Super Paper Mario. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn actually got me into the Fire Emblem series, so I kinda want to kick myself in the head for not getting into the series sooner. And Super Paper Mario was such a beautiful game, I love the characters and the story.

Not too many RPG on Wii,, the best era was the SNES RPG era.. ;P

There are RPGs on Wii? All kidding aside, SPM doesn't really count. I didn't care for Radiant Dawn at all compared to PoR or the GBA ones for some reason. There's Tales 2, but I haven't played it yet. I'm putting a lot of hope and faith into Arc Rise Fantasia and FFCC: Crystal Bearers. Probably too much...

Okami. There were times I wanted to strangle whoever set the sensitivity re: horizontal brushstrokes, but it was a great story and a lot of fun to play.

Sadly, there hasn't been a lot of RPGs on the Wii i've been interested in. I've played Super Paper Mario; it was really too sweet and cloying for a second playthrough to be honest (and I'd rather play SMRPG now that it's out, lol). Twilight Princess, however, was a worthy addition to the Zelda series and it made me immediately buy OoT via Virtual Console afterward (and it looks terrible compared to TP...). I honestly liked Okami better because it was something completely new to me, and it featured a lot of tie-ins to Japanese myths/legends. :3

Tales 2 for me.
I haven't played Fire Emblem or Super Paper Mario yet but I loved Tales so much I doubt either game will change my favorite.

There are a few games that could knock off Tales 2 though..
A few that come to mind are Tales of Graces, Monster Hunter 3, and any of the new Final Fantasy's.

I don't really consider Okami an RPG just like I don't consider the Zelda series RPGs either but if people start including it, then I must too! It's a great game and as stated here, CAPCOM has recently slashed its price to just $20!

Okami and Zelda are definitely not RPGs, at least not moreso than Metroid. They're action games with permanent upgrades that you can find.

I don't think I own any retail RPGs for the Wii unless you count SPM (which I don't, it's a platformer with a lot of annoying baggage that got me to the point where I was too annoyed to continue playing). The only Wii game I have that might count as an RPG is FFCCMLaaK though you don't do the RPGing yourself in that.

That's in part because they never released ToS2 here, those lazy bastards.

Fire Emblem for me too, even though it's claim to being an RPG is tenuous in my eyes.

This is why I am looking forward to Arc Rise Fantasia – the first Wii RPG to reach us in the west.

Chocobo Dungeon. It looks cute but it gets very hardcore half-way through. Your missing out on a great wii game if you have never played it!

Super Paper Mario was more of a platform game to me, its RPG elements where really light, Fire Emblem I know it has its fans but its not really my kind of RPG, I'm still waiting on Crystal Bearers for a proper RPG and also Dragon Quest 10.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. I would definitely consider in an RPG in the sense of story plus character levelling. I really enjoy the jeopardy of non-core characters being able to die (I've already lost a couple) and the tactical aspect. Anything turn-based is golden as far as I'm concerned so Arc Rise is definitely on the radar as well!

Does Dragon Quest Swords count?

Well @ least this thread got everyone talking. As for SPM I think it's more of a hybrid RPG/Platformer.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

I haven't played Tales of Symphonia 2, but it looks interesting
