61 King's Field IV
62 Dragon Age II
63 Grandia

Interesting story that starts off slow and funny, but gets real serious later on. A lot of grinding on weapon and magic levels might bring it down though. - NuMetalManiak

64 The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

I can accept many of the games that are above this, but how is it that many games that are not even RPGs are on this list. The Grand Theft Auto series, no matter how good, is a sandbox game, not an RPG. How in the world does not one but multiple Grand Theft Auto games top Witcher 2 on a list of greatest RPGs is beyond me

!... Its a great game!... Awesome game ever... You all are nuts!

This game is just awesome:
-Graphic is great
-Fights are filled with more Speed than in other games
-Great storyline
-Hero is a real badass

68 Assassin'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!

A very good game

It is a good game but how is this game an RPG - YourWaifuSucks

69 Shin 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.

70 Xenogears

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...

Has a wonderful soundtrack, and two unique courses of gameplay. It's really long though, and the random encounters do get annoying after awhile. - NuMetalManiak

71 Magic Knight Rayearth

I'm actually surprised to see this at #75. If we are talking about the SNES version, it's super simplistic, and doesn't manage more than it should. - NuMetalManiak

72 Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

I am highly fond of Shadow of Mordor and also hyped for it's sequel Shadow of War but how is this game an RPG? - YourWaifuSucks

This game is fantastic, and one of my favorites...but it's not an rpg...

73 Ys I & II
74 Neverwinter 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

75 The 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.

76 The 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

77 Pokemon Colosseum
78 The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter
79 Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride - Nintendo DS
