Best RPG Video Games

This game breathed new life into the RPG genre towards the end of 90s. It's vast, epic and challenging.
Undertale undeniably has the best plot of any RPG. EVERYTHING in the game is incorporated into the story. In this way, the game is untraditional, and it's a relief from all the other generic RPGs out there. What other game calls EXP Execution Points, or includes save points into the plot? And there are so many options! You don't have to fight your opponents. Instead, you can win combats by having conversations with them. You literally decide Frisk's (the protagonist) personality. Will he be the savior of the game, or the mass murderer antagonist? Every choice you make is reflected in dialogue, as well. And don't even get me started on the characters! Every single one has their own personality, their secrets, and you become so attached to them. Considering Undertale's incredible plot mechanics and characters, it definitely deserves the fandom it's amassed.
This game makes you feel like a kid again (if you choose the right path). It is creative, humorous, and messes with your emotions. The artwork is fantastic too! This game never fails to please, having a great soundtrack and storyline that you are sure to fall in love with. The only thing you can really hate in this game is flowers.
This game needs to be higher up. IT HAS A 94 ON METACRITIC! Anyways, this game is full of amazing characters, flawless enemies, awesome story lines, and so much more. It gives you the feels too. And, of course, it's also a cooking simulator, dating simulator, and dance-battle simulator (if that's a thing...)

This was my favorite rpg as a kid and even still. Great Charaters, Fun Story, Epic post game.
Easily one of the greatest games of all time. The story line is more intricate than any Final Fantasy I've played which is all but ff3. Rpgs tend to be either to simple or be crushed under their own monstrous weight but Suikoden 3 pulls it of nicely and is vastly repayable with 3 main characters and three secondary characters. If you have never beaten it with all 108 do it and the end bonus will make this the best rpg you have ever played.
This game is incredible with the most stunning twists that all come together. A MUST for suikoden and final fantasy fans!
Pretty low it seems. I found Wild Arms to be a lot of fun, with great story and characters. Even the villains had some sensible charisma. Lots of optional things too. - NuMetalManiak
Not quite as good as the second but still had a very immersive story line with loads of replay value. The vast amount of items and puzzles made it interesting and complex. Great Game
This game may not have the best graphics but this story is unbelievable. It has great and very interesting characters too. The battle style is also very interesting. Those who likes to play RPG games and a Tales fan needs to play this game.
I can never believe that it is so low in the list. According to me it was the best Tales game. Simply AWESOME.Hope that its place increases in the list.
Awesome game you get to make your own character change your tactics and do what your style is like go for a gladiator for damage and a sage for spells that can blow up some shiz its super epic everyone needs this game I asked plenty of people if they play this most likely they don't because there was only about 3-7 commercials playing in july about it one of the best rpg games I ever played so awesome you will be addicted like I was for 2 years man!
Amazing story line. Fun graphics. Great plot. Adventure inspiring. 10/10 - TheCoolestPersonEver
I loved this game to death, it is one of the best handheld games that I enjoyed

Best RPG I've ever played
What? Why is it that low? Gothic II Night of the Raven supposed to be in top10, this is one of the best RPG games! - Syler
