121 Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven

This game breathed new life into the RPG genre towards the end of 90s. It's vast, epic and challenging.

122 Suikoden 3

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!

It's long, but it's fun, and having different perspectives of the plot is great too. The regular combat system is probably the toughest out of the Suikodens I've played. - NuMetalManiak

123 Wild Arms

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

124 Gothic II Night of the Raven

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

Best rpg ever

This being so low is a travesty. One of the best RPGs ever made.

Can't believe its not in here yet :(
G1 and G2 are just 2 of the best rpg's ever created in my opinion.

125 South Park: The Stick of Truth
126 inFAMOUS 2
127 Fire Emblem Awakening

This is my 4th favorite video game of all time

128 Tales of the Abyss

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.

129 Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn

* Easily the most underrated game of all time! Thank IGN for finally including this masterpiece in their Best PC Games of All Time List- it deserves the recognition.

* Before KOTOR. Before Mass Effect. Before Dragon Age. Before Oblivion and Skyrim. THIS GAME. BG2 had it all: incredible story, beautiful/immersive world, superb music/voice acting, memorable companions, and epic gameplay.

* The game is over 10 years old now, and it's still wildly entertaining (even with today's cutting edge graphics). It's a game you can pick up time and time after again and still find refreshing.

* Did I mention plot already? This is early Bioware with its full creativity and without any modern gaming constraints (having to rely heavily on reading text). As a result, BG2 has enormous scope (I've lost track of how many hours of gameplay it has). It has a very unique and epic-defining plot that's still riveting today after all the RPGs that have been produced since.

* This ...more

The best rpg out there. I have played it more times then I can count, I just picked it up again not long ago, and I still think no other rpg can even compare to the story line, game play and in the depth characters. They can even fight others in your party if they get pissed enough at them! What other rpg has done that? The game can range wildly from very easy to insanely hard depending on how you set it up, making it a good game for all.

THE best game I have ever played. My first RPG ever and I love it! I discovered it on the DVD for Dungeons and Dragons and fell in love! The story is amazing, the plot makes me feel epic, and I love that the companions you meet have their own personalities. Mods make the game different every time. You can play a new person with every play through. The game can entertain you for a very long time. And the battles can be epic. If you're someone who cares about story more than graphics you will LOVE this game! - Lizardbitch

The best RPG of all time. Still in 2017, it doesn't seems old, and it's still insanely fun to play.
