101Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium

My favorite RPG. This game is so underrated. The characters and story line is so well done. This game holds up through the test of time so well. I know it will never be in the top ten but it should be. If you've never played it, do yourself a favor and play. I hated saying this, but this game is epic.

This must be number 1... All is great about this game... Story, characters, battle system, and the soundtrack.
No game is better than phantasy star 4.

There are many zealous fans of the Final Fantasy franchise and with good reason. They are amazing games, but for me Phantasy Star IV ranks as my all time favorite rpg. The game was released before many of the best Squaresoft games in the 90's, yet the graphics were better. Most importantly the gameplay and story were phenominal. I've been capitivated by good rpgs many times. However none have moved me the way this one did the first time I played it. It was easily the best Genesis rpg. I've gone through it multiple times.

102Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals

Why was this not on the list? Great story line, unique ancient cave side quest, and great puzzles. All around an amazing game to play! 5 Stars!

Lufia II manages to avoid the mistakes of the first game, while adding in the puzzle aspect to the dungeons to make it a well playable game. - NuMetalManiak

Amazing story, soundtrack, characters and gameplay. Truely one of the SNES masterpieces. From the 100 floors of the overchanging Ancient Dungeon to 'The World's Hardest Puzzle' this game is just all sorts of fun.


The most best RPG ever created. Unique fighting system, tons of side quests, movie worth storyline free-discover world and intelligent NPC talks.

117Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Dude, this is the deal! The best game I've ever played in my entire life. Better than its rock n roll predecessor Grand Theft Auto vice city, with almost seemingly infinite gameplay. Grand Theft Auto rocks

Why the hell is this not on the top 10? This is arguably not only the greatest game to come out on the ps2, but possibly one of the greatest games that ever existed. The graphics and wide environment makes the game highly fun and addicting and just never gets too old.

The awesomeness in this game is intrancindeble (wathever the hell I wrote here) and not also the crazyasticness in a video game like this one suppers everything.

118Marvel Ultimate Alliance

The Ultimate Marvel Game! - aeromaxx777

119Titan Quest

Nice graphics for the time period, I kinda liked the 2 classes you could choose... To bad the story did not reach its full potential, because I love greek, egiptian and other mythologies...

Also battle system is way to primitive... pure hack and slash...

AI too predicatable but good variety of sceneries.
Needs some fine tuning but overall the gameplay was enjoyable

120Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven

This game breathed new life into the RPG genre towards the end of 90s. It's vast, epic and challenging.
