62Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Unbelievably the best game I have ever played! Number 1 Graphics, gameplay, everything. Everything about it was awesome. Since I started to play the first game, assassin's creed I, I knew the other assassin creed games would be better!

I hoped and hoped and hoped for a sequel to Lost Age, but it never came... the storyline in this game is hands-down the most original ever.

The game of my childhood, I got it on my 10th birthday and I have loved it since. Wonderful graphics, great story, even random battles were fun! Overall, the best game I have played in my life.

Great game, hell, it's a great series. The graphics were great for the years they were released. My only problem with the games was the amount of dialogue in them. Even in the third one Tyrell even pipes up and comments that the other characters are talking too much. - patrickmoore

Superb storyline, wonderful gameplay and amazing graphics at that time made a sure winner

Perhaps the best interactive media presentation I've ever experienced! Fantastic art direction. It's an enormous story that is very powerful. You think you've seen the world and know what you're up against, but it's always so much more - some higher force pulling the strings, or what you'd least expect. Very cool visuals (pixelated, 2d sprites, and 3d worlds) cool characters, and a very powerful music track. I think it has my favourite music ever in a game. The Battle system is the games weakness - it could have used more variables and the game could have had a wider variety of challenges, so the gameplay needed some work, but its not bad - pretty fun until you find yourself grinding against the same enemies. But the product is so amazing as a whole - very memorable as a multimedia presentation. Best story, best music, awesome graphics, and a very cool world to wander around in!

Such a cult classic... I'm completely shocked its not in the top 10... should be in the top 3. Personally its my number 1... the story by which I judge all other RPG stories on...

Best RPG ever. The story-line is the most interesting and also has similar with our culture. So many puzzles and our expectations about this game is unpredictable...

Fight as human... fight as giant robot... It's everything you want from RPG

66Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3

It has the most saddening ending ever. Awesome personas with its marvelous skills. It seems real with the teens problems, making friends, etc. I love this game so much especially the main character who gave his soul to protect the world from the fall

In the history of gaming, I have never seen a eye opening game like P3. From beginning to sad end, this particular game has it all. Modern setting, great adventure, and colorful characters.

Made a impressive jump from it's previous game. It was packed with great characters and a emotional ending.

67Final Fantasy VIII

Ultimecia is the only reason I played the friggin game, I mean who else can have so much cleveage and get away with it? - sapphirewhirlwind

One of the best stories ever created, this Final Fantasy deserved more than what it received.

Compelling storyline with in depth character customization. Best of the series.

This game is abolutely amazing, a must play!!

68Chrono 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.

70Gothic III

This is the peak of the Gothic series. Many critique it for multiple reasons: bugs - fixed by various patches and community patches, as of July 2013, I played through the entire game without finding a singe bug. Some complain about the combat system being spammy, but that just shows that those people have no idea about how to play the game and have obviously never had to kill a pack (swarm, herd, whatever it's called) of Sandcrawlers or Minecrawlers. The combat has actually deep strategy behind it, because you can't drink potions in combat, if you try it, you'll get your face torn off by enemies. The entire Gothic series gives you this feeling of exploration, not only is exploration heavily rewarded in all of the Gothic games, but it also progressively enlarges the game world, from a small atmospheric mining valley, through a troubled island to the world of Gothic 3, which is one of the biggest and prettiest game worlds ever created, in my opinion it could even compete with TES: ...more

It had it's numerous bugs at launch, but most are fixed by now (Community patch 1.75). Not as good as Gothic 2, but offers many many hours of gameplay. The atmosphere is unbelievable from green forests of Myrtana to dusty deserts of Varant to snowy peaks of Nordmar. Best game music in my opinion. Finshed it 6+ times and I still find new things / places. Try it, you won't be sorry.

Gothic 3 is ok, though much better is Gothic 2 - not for amateurs, recommend this game for adult players which do enjoy rpgs with mental exercises

The best game I ever played.

73Ys I & II
74Neverwinter Nights

this game has made mmorpgs what it is today. with outstanding single player, and multi play modes. this game will last a very long time with content ranging from 100 hours in single player.

This is classic. The best D&D implementation, catchy atmosphere, quite smart combat system and great story telling. My favourite RPG ever! I'm amazed that so few people voted for it

Endless amounts of user campaigns make this a game to play forever... :-) - VAFury

75World of Warcraft

Depending on the time you play you can play this game without an end, I have been playing for 6 years now there has been plenty expansion packs but I conclude this covers all of WoW and its expansions, The goal in this game is to level up and follow quest learning more about the lore of the world of warcraft which is mostly based on the warcraft RTS games but then as MMORPG, once you hit the max. level you get the chance to endlesly "raid" = do dungeons with 10-25 people to get better gear and higher damage per second, healing or be the one who takes the mobs and bosses on you as "tank" which they call ingame that needs a lot of health points. With new, better stronger and harder bosses after every room or gate. All together this is a great game wich easely beats the 100 hours rpg offline games I read about cause you can spend thousands inhere with other people socialising and advancing in the game with other real living players. The only downside is the ...more

Click the tick if you are a nolife. Seriously world of warcraft is for those who don't want a girlfriend or have no friends outside internet. Good when you are 10 though!

Although WoW has it's draw backs its still one of the best MMORPGs out there, the subscription is a pain just for a game but I feel its worth it because you can never truly beat it

Great game. I just have to say its the best one. Star Wars the old republic is a great game too, though they're both amazing wow is better

76The Witcher

This series had the best rpg storyline and graphics so far (graphics in part 2 are even better! ). I can't believe this game is rated so low, most games above aren't even rpg's.

Quite possibly one of the best RPGs of all time. The story is great and the gameplay mechanics are pretty much very good as well. Long playtime and it pulls you into its story. I both enjoyed this one and its sequel.

Best game of the year when it came out. It created the new benchmark RPG's were measured against.

77The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Wind waker is like the baby son of ocarina of time. No other game could have had a baby this bloody awesome except maybe ff7 but I don't think he's the father. Definitely my second favorite Zelda game
