64 Dragon Age II
65 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

66 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

69 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

70 Golden Sun

I hoped and hoped and hoped for a sequel to Lost Age, but it never came... the storyline in this game is hands-down the most original ever.

The game of my childhood, I got it on my 10th birthday and I have loved it since. Wonderful graphics, great story, even random battles were fun! Overall, the best game I have played in my life.

Great game, hell, it's a great series. The graphics were great for the years they were released. My only problem with the games was the amount of dialogue in them. Even in the third one Tyrell even pipes up and comments that the other characters are talking too much. - patrickmoore

Superb storyline, wonderful gameplay and amazing graphics at that time made a sure winner

71 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.

72 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

73 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

74 Final Fantasy VIII

Ultimecia is the only reason I played the friggin game, I mean who else can have so much cleveage and get away with it? - sapphirewhirlwind

One of the best stories ever created, this Final Fantasy deserved more than what it received.

Compelling storyline with in depth character customization. Best of the series.

Its the best FF ever, even better than 7!

75 Gothic III

This is the peak of the Gothic series. Many critique it for multiple reasons: bugs - fixed by various patches and community patches, as of July 2013, I played through the entire game without finding a singe bug. Some complain about the combat system being spammy, but that just shows that those people have no idea about how to play the game and have obviously never had to kill a pack (swarm, herd, whatever it's called) of Sandcrawlers or Minecrawlers. The combat has actually deep strategy behind it, because you can't drink potions in combat, if you try it, you'll get your face torn off by enemies. The entire Gothic series gives you this feeling of exploration, not only is exploration heavily rewarded in all of the Gothic games, but it also progressively enlarges the game world, from a small atmospheric mining valley, through a troubled island to the world of Gothic 3, which is one of the biggest and prettiest game worlds ever created, in my opinion it could even compete with TES: ...more

It had it's numerous bugs at launch, but most are fixed by now (Community patch 1.75). Not as good as Gothic 2, but offers many many hours of gameplay. The atmosphere is unbelievable from green forests of Myrtana to dusty deserts of Varant to snowy peaks of Nordmar. Best game music in my opinion. Finshed it 6+ times and I still find new things / places. Try it, you won't be sorry.

Gothic 3 is ok, though much better is Gothic 2 - not for amateurs, recommend this game for adult players which do enjoy rpgs with mental exercises

The best game I ever played.

76 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...

77 Ys I & II
78 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

79 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.

80 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
