82 Undertale

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 is not only THE BEST RPG, but it is one of the best games ever. The game has a epic storyline, which changes depending on what you do. The characters are all unique. I mean seriously a LESBIAN LIZARD WHO HAS A CRUSH ON A WARRIOR LESBIAN FISH who also happens to be a scientist who created a entertainment robot that tries to kill you. The soundtrack is amazing, and all by one person. The game basically is created by just Toby Fox. You don't even have to kill your enemies to get past them. And Sans has the best puns

This absolutely NEEDS to be higher. Games like this only come once in a lifetime, and this one outshines nearly all other RPG games out there. It's got an amazing plotline, awesome mechanics, superb music, and we haven't seen characters with such personality since the Lord of The Rings movies. (I know that's a strange comparison, but I think it works.) While the fandom does have some strange parts to it, the other 75% is rather creative.

Absolutely crap game, crappy plot, decent soundtrack, awful gameplay.

A short RPG, but it really has the story be one of the best. It's battle system is unique, the characters are likable, even though you don't get much of a back story for any of them. But even though it's short, it's still a great game.

Incredible RPG! A great battle system, with great characters! For those of you who enjoyed the final fantasy series!

89 Final Fantasy V
90 Sudeki

92 Saga Frontier
93 Dragon 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!

94 Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction

Great game. You get to blow up or steal anything!

95 Diablo III

Without the Reaper of Souls expansion Diablo 3 is an incomplete disappointment. - Aguythatpeopleignores

One of the games I can play with the SO.

I think it's awesome. Best new game I've played in years.

Amazing Story line, Fantastic Graphics and Awesome Game-play.
If that's not enough, You can actually MAKE MONEY from this game.
You can sell the items you get from drops for either in game gold or real money!

Game of the Year!

96 Pokemon Y

This is a great game with a great story! The gameplay is fun, and you fall in love with your adorable little creatures!

97 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Still play today! Hundreds of gameplay hours later!

98 Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

This should be number 1! Awesome game.

This was my favorite rpg as a kid and even still. Great Charaters, Fun Story, Epic post game.

99 Arcanum

Arcanum is the best rpg! Large party, great monsters is really good. Arcanum is old, but there is a fascinating scenario. arcanumu play will not regret it

Amazing, especially for it's time, makes me think if it were remade today with modern graphics, it would lose a lot of it's charm.

Unique, beautiful, full of mysteries, atmospheric, but unfortunately buggy

100 Sword of Mana

A remake of Final Fantasy Adventure. There are TONS of sidequests, and a decent regular plot, plus it takes cues from Secret of Mana, but otherwise, it's somewhat forgettable. - NuMetalManiak
