Best RPG Video Games
The Contenders: Page 3XW
The best game I have ever played. Amazing story, awesome characters, great gameplay, and of course the amazing music. This game somehow encompasses both the old school ff-feel and the awesome storytelling of newer ff's. It also has the best sidequests I have ever seen in a jrpg, the chocobo quest was almost a game by itself.
Unlike... every other game created by mankind (at least that I've played) this game is literally flawless. Not a single problem with it that can't be justified. - arbeZameniC
The best game ever. It is a work of art that examines the philosophy of life in an exciting and thought provoking way. The characters and music are immense.
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!
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. - ZeebsV2 Comments
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?
Its Mass Effct guys, I've put more hours into this game than hours I put going outside.
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..
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?V2 Comments
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?
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 thisV2 Comments
I really don't like RPG's but his game was amazing!
I really dont play videogames, but I was hooked
Best rpg of all time, engaging free choices and fun quests, graphics are awesome for a 2004 game, this game inspired games like oblivionV1 Comment
I can accept many of the games that are above this, but how is it that many games that are not even RPGs are on this list. The Grand Theft Auto series, no matter how good, is a sandbox game, not an RPG. How in the world does not one but multiple Grand Theft Auto games top Witcher 2 on a list of greatest RPGs is beyond me
!... Its a great game!... Awesome game ever... You all are nuts!
This game is just awesome:
-Graphic is great
-Fights are filled with more Speed than in other games
-Hero is a real badass
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.
