42Borderlands 2

Should be much higher on the list! Definitely one of the best games so far in this decade in my opinion! Best of the series, had a good story, hilarious writing & characters, and overall really fun RPG elements! All 4 characters are very fun to use, and extensive amount of weapons and gear to earn all throughout the game!

43Paper Mario

Amazing game. Not as good as it's successor in my opinion, but still great. Perfect if you're looking for a fun RPG with quick-time elements.

This needs to be waay higher! Come on people it's paper Mario, who doesn't love this game?

44Mass Effect 3

Its Mass Effct guys, I've put more hours into this game than hours I put going outside.

45Mother 3

Elder scrolls oblivions? I'm surprised to say the least I was expecting to see Final fantasy 7 number one. Also some of these games really don't seem like rpgs namely fallout which really seems more like a sandbox game with karma involved. Matters not, for none of them can even remotely compete to the genius of this game. It has quirky characters, fantastic battle sequences, a large amount of things to do, and a story that will leave a bigger impact on your life than any video game, and quite possibly any movie as well. You simply cannot buy a more fantastic game, and currently you can get it for free.

This is personally known to me as the only game in the world to leave an emotional mark. The ending really leaves you with an extremely special feeling.

In my opinion is the best RPG game for GameBoy Advance, did not come out of Japan but fans have done translations in many languages

I laughed. A lot. I cried. Almost as much.

Amazing that, eight years later, it still hasn't been released out of Japan.

46Dark Souls III
47Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete

One of my all time favorite console RPG's. Great story, very likable characters that grow on you, classic game.

This really should be in the Top 10. The characters, story, and gameplay are wonderful. - NuMetalManiak

Most people nowadays think Call of Duty ^^ halo are the best games ever... But I'll never forget this game, it had the best story I've seen... Amazing game, surely the greatest RPG..

48Front Mission
49The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The Legend of Zelda games are always the best, especially this game. It has an amazing plot and great controls. It takes a long time to beat the entire game. That is why I think it is the best game.

It's not an RPG, but a great game nonetheless.

What the frick?! The top 51 RPG's don't include Twilight Princess? Has the world gone mad?

Awesome story loads of styles to upgrade your character and an epic setting. Big fan of the real time combat!

Nice graphics, awesome fighting styles, great story..
What need I say more?

I enslaved my girlfriend's dad in this game!

51Valkyrie Profile

Not even in the top 100? You have got to be kidding me. This is just amazing to play all the way through. Very unique battle system, lots of customization, very haunting stories, and multiple endings. This RPG will leave you wanting to play more and more of it. - NuMetalManiak

can u beat a 1 million life boss with just using guts and luck? - ronluna

Psone best rpg, and ps2 awesome rpg, unic combat style, game mode and sptectacular dungeons and bosses, if you didn't�'t play this game yet, hurry up, you can't die without play it!

52Chrono Cross

It hard to find the similar game like chrono trigger, but this game almost have the same experience like that game. I love those both game, is there any game which have the same topic, like time machine, parallel world, dream perhaps?

BETTER than Chrono Trigger, especially the soundtrack and art style. It's a tragedy to the rpg world this is not in the top 10. My god, and what a HUGE tragedy. I voted for this even though it's not my #1 choice just so it can get more recognized... What a shame for it to have 0.2% - big time ouch! Not only one of the best rpgs but one of the finest games ever created! A forgotten masterpiece lost in time by the gaming community.

Probably the greatest soundtrack I've heard in a video game.

It's a shame Chrono Cross was compared to Chrono Trigger. They expected something different from CC, and that is what hurt its reputation so much.

This game deserves so much more love.

53Xenoblade Chronicles

Despite the not so great graphics, this game is one of the best gaming experiences I've had. All the environments are astonishing beautiful, that is, if you don't look at anything very closely. The world is gigantic and has a ton of places to explore. The story is also amazing and imersive, and will keep you entertained for something like a hundred hours. The game also offers hundreds of quests to keep you busy after finishing the story. The battle mechanics are a little different, but after some 10 battles you'll feel confortable with this amazing battle style.

Hands-down the best JRPG of all time. Amazing story, great characters, and an intense battle system. If you have a Wii, you'll be doing yourself a favor when this gets released on April 6th, 2012!

Best rpg in my opinion, huge world, final fantasy can't even touch this

55Fallout 4

This beautiful game puts you into your own character personality be it a vigerlante, helpful friend or just a dick. I can't stress how good this game is so if you haven't bought it then do yourself a favour by getting this now. Please, if you'll keep shooter RPGs then this is the God of them and probably all games (opinion)

56Dragon Age II
57Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

On of the best RPG ever! The most incredible storyline, awesome soundtrack and the most vivid characters I saw in video games. That's not a simple game - it's a true masterpiece!

Let Japan handle the RPG business, Persona 4 is the best RPG ever!

Everyone must experience this game. The only reason why it's not as well known is because it came out in late 2008 on the PS2 in America and has its remake on the PS Vita. I got a Vita for Persona 4: Golden alone and it was worth every penny. - Zeebs
