The Contenders: Page 9XW

161Dragon Warrior I

Amazing game, and one of the first true rpg's, and it was for the best system so far, the nes. I don't know about everybody else, but I am tired of the newer games, ever since the ps2/xbox/gamecube time, pretty much all rpg's are way too easy.

I played this game for hours and hours when I was a kid and I must say it was very addicting!

162X-men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse

X-men & Brotherhood together? AWESOME! - aeromaxx777

163Tales of Destiny

I support the above post about Power Rangers Time Force.

Don't risk your life; it's not worth it.

164The World Ends With You

Great storyline and sountrack, unique and challenging gameplay. It isn't at all grind heavy and fights are mostly up to the player. Its very accessable with the abillity to change difficulty and your health bar from the pause screen. Fantastic

165Ninja Gaiden II
166Shining Force II
167Shadow Hearts

one of the best fighting styles you'll ever see gotta play this.

One of my favourite ps2 rpg's. Brilliant story and atmosphere. You must play shadow hearts 2 after but I don't recommend 3 at all!

168Front Mission 3

Best Rpg Ever with almost 70 hours of gameplay two stories! love the battle system, good characters, lot of customizable weapons and parts. its a 9.5/10

awesome game

Fantastic story line and game play. I remember wishing the game wouldn't end when I played it.

169The Sims 2

Oh really? Is it rpg? Simulation huh.

170Divinity II: Ego Draconis

A great game for the SNES never seems like it took off. I loved the game. The story was amazing, the music was awesome, and overall it was another great RPG. With many choices and ways to develope your storyline. In my opinion thus game is hard to beat and should be up on top.

172Tales of Vesperia
173Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny

Simply stunning. Highly enjoyable throughout the entire game.

174Dark Cloud 2

Dark Cloud was a good game. I played it years ago but I throughly enjoyed it. Takes a while to get in to it but the Dungeons are cool. More of a remake of Zelda but still worth playing

175Tales of Xillia

I've had this game for 10 years now, so forget the graphics comparison with today, because the lore, storyline, locations, underrated epicness of this game make it the best in my book. The very few people who know this game become cult followers very quickly, it has the most intense atmosphere than any other game I've ever encountered with its insanely great instrumental music and storyline combined, this should be re-released, as no other game can compare to it and there are no games like this nowadays with such great atmosphere. People don't know what they miss, the best games are underrated.

This was my first RPG, and it has an amazing storyline.. Love this game

178Phantasy Star Online

It's a very playable game. Once you get a hang of the controls it is really fun (I've beaten the game 3 times) and has the option to play as either good or evil making beating the game twice worth while. I also find that the plot is really good making it so that they can wrap up loose ends just enough for you to play it while ensuring half the people don't get fed up once one of their favorite characters dies (thankfully they didn't let that happen). All in all a well executed game with only one major drawback (you can't pick a fight once you complete all the side missions because they remove the enemies from the surrounding area. )
