101The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Still play today! Hundreds of gameplay hours later!

102Grim Fandango

Smartest, funniest and best produced RPG of all time. The others on this list are sophomoric by comparison. One of only two franchises (with Monkey Island) that adults can admit to playing.

103Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
104Mortal Kombat: Deception
105Lunar: The Silver Star

108Phantasy 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.

109Lufia 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.

110Gothic

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