The Top Ten

The World Ends With You The World Ends With You Product Image

I can't tell you how many friends I've gotten into this game. Although it has always been incredibly hard to find, it is well worth the search. Includes an incredible story, music, and art style. - Luvaddict77

Pokemon HeartGold Pokemon HeartGold Product Image

Brings back memories of my childhood. - Luvaddict77

Disgaea DS Disgaea DS Product Image

Yes, it's a port of the original that was made for the PS2, but is much improved from that and the PSP version as it includes the bonus Etna mode and allows you to recruit characters you couldn't in the PSP remake. - Luvaddict77

By far my favorite game

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time Product Image

Again just the story blows these other games out of the water. The gameplay is also great - Frouze

This brings back lots of memories. I remember crying in this several times...
Way too underrated though! - Catameow

Luminous Arc Luminous Arc Product Image
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass The Legend of Zelda:  Phantom Hourglass Product Image

Alright, so there's a lot of debate over whether or not Zelda is an RPG series or not. I'm going with yes for the sake of this list. Anyways, great game, decent story, and the level of difficulty is pretty good. Zelda games don't have much replay value though in my opinion, but you may want to pick it up later and play through it again. - Luvaddict77

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier Product Image

Phantasy Star 0 Phantasy Star 0 Product Image
