161 The Sims 2

Oh really? Is it rpg? Simulation huh.

162 Divinity II: Ego Draconis
163 Terranigma

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.

164 Tales of Vesperia
165 Demon's Souls V 1 Comment
166 Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny

Simply stunning. Highly enjoyable throughout the entire game.

167 Dark 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

This bad boy needs to be on the list

168 Tales of Xillia
169 Bravely Default

This is the BEST RPG GAME I've ever played good graphics, awesome story you can change your fighting mode like from martial arts to a wizard, and ultimate characterS
PLAY IT YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Okay... I suppose I need to justify my vote for what is currently the 185th best RPG... This is the first JRPG I've ever played, and I simply fell in love with it. The soundtrack was amazing, and the characters were lovable... I know this game isn't very popular, but I could go on and on about why I like this game, but that just might be my obsessive self talking. Really, I can't compare this to any other RPG because it's the only one I've played beside the big name ones, like Pokemon and Skyrim. Right now this game is practically my life (seriously, its what I draw, write, play, and listen to-- when I hear the soundtrack, I! Go! Wild! ), probably until I tryout another RPG.

Anyway, you can explore the vast hand drawn Luxendarc as you journey to save the world, with a unique turn based combat style. Its addicting and quick... Well, when I beat the game, I had about 80+ into it... But anyway, it's super enjoyable. Just mind that there's a TON of dialogue. Thank you. I'll be ...more

170 Fire Emblem

Fire Emblem was the first RPG I ever played, and it has always, and always will be my favorite.

Fire emblem is greatly misunderstood due to games like fates and heroes which are very different from the other games and though the awakening characters lack feet they don't lack a sense of personality,style, character and awesomeness

171 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.

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.

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

173 Phantasy Star Online
174 Mount & Blade: Warband

Extremely underrated - DatRabidSlushie

175 Fire Emblem: Fates
176 Diablo II
177 Parasite Eve

This game is awesome! - MeeMeeCandy777

178 Mech Quest
179 InFamous

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. )
