Favorite RPG game

Ok, just to ask, what's your fav RPG game?
You tell what it is, then explain why.

Me, well I don't exactly know what my favorite is. I ponder between a few that I have now. Here they are:

1)The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
2)Untold legends, Dark Kingdoms
3)Something else I forgot...

I don't think that Zelda is an RPG. So don't be saying that I forgot Zelda, and stuff like that.

Lotr: The third age. I absolutely love it. The story is great, the characters are memorable, their is so many items to collect, it's quite difficult and it takes a while to complete 100%.

I like Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. It's got a card based play to it, but a great RPG none-the-less.

Re: Favorite RPG game

Final Fantasy X.

The main plot is the greatest story told in a video game, the characters are fun and memorable, the graphics and artstyle is beautiful, the soundtrack is perfect, the cutscenes are great, the spheregird makes leveling-up fun, the battle system is quick and easy, the bosses are creative and offer a decent challenge, and the puzzles are actually fun.

Re: Favorite RPG game

Paper Mario 2, it is an awesome game, the gameplay is perfect, and it's the only game that could make me laugh in parts where I'm supposed to laugh.

I should also mention Golden Sun, both 1 and 2 are great.

If nobody else has play Baten Kaitos, this game is sick. It gets adictive real quick, and the HP combos you can do are crazy. Definatly one of my favorite. But actualy the first RPG I playd was my favorite and that was Super Mario RPG. Definitly a good one

Re: Favorite RPG game

I pretty much love every game that Square produces; so that means any Final Fantasy game, and the like. I also liked Legend of Dragoon a lot, and Legend of Legaia. I love RPG games in general - although I don't just restrict myself to them.

Re: Favorite RPG game



without a doubt the best RPG in my opinion (in fact, Its THE best game in my opinion). This was my first final fantasy game and it hooked me, line and sinker.

-GREAT STORY!
-interesting and memorable characters
-satisfying combat system
-TONS of customization
-INSANELY GOOD! CG cutscenes (ps2 quality)
-TONS of sidequest to do

I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually baught several copies of it so if one ever got scratched or stopped working I could play it again. I also transfered saves to several memory cards so if it gets lost or deleted I will have back up.

BEST GAME!!!!!!!!

Re: Favorite RPG game

1. Tales of Symphonia
I know this game has many simaleirites with other Jap RPGs out there such as the plot and kinds of characters it has. but two things set this apart from the rest that make this at the top of my list: Lloyd Ivring and a badass combat system.

2.Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles
as my first final fantasy I found this game's story to be very charming and a refreshing spin from other shallow RPG story lines. The single player lacks but the mutiplayer shines in this game. Also the music is cool.

I have some other favorites but I can't think of them right now. If I had a more powerful PC I really want to take Elder Scrolls 4 for a spin

Re: Favorite RPG game

Star ocean, I really like 3, and I have started to play 2, I just haven't gotten that far into it. The battle system truely is fun, and very customizable. 4 should be out with the next 2 years so that should be a must play for me, and if I ever buy a PSP I'll have to get it for that as well.

Re: Favorite RPG game

This is always really hard for me to decide.

In terms of classic RPGs, it's definitely a tie between Dragon Quest III and Final Fantasy IV. Dragon Quest was basically the first RPG in the style that we're familiar with today, but DQIII expanded on the formula by adding a class system and some other unique quirks. I feel it was the first classic RPG to truly push the genre forward, and be more fun overall. As for FFIV, I've always seen it as the first RPG to have a more cinematic story, and I consider it the reason the genre is as story-intensive as it is today.

RPGs I find to be the best from the end of the SNES era and the dawn of the 3D era are Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy Tactics. Final Fantasy VI pushed the SNES to its limits, even if games like Chrono Trigger and Secret of Evermore looked even better. But the reason FFVI rises above even those is its epic storyline and brilliant cast of characters. Most people consider FFVII to be the first character-centric RPG, no doubt because more are familiar with it, but FFVI did it first and, in my opinion, better. On top of that, it has one of the best scores in any game I've played to date. As for FFT, it simply had some of the best gameplay in the genre, and an epic plot that I feel is still unmatched to this day. It was re-released and retranslated as The War of the Lions for the PSP last year, and still managed to be just as brilliant as it was back then, even though it was a decade old.

The best modern RPGs I've played are definitely Shadow Hearts and Tales of the Abyss. Shadow Hearts offered classic RPG gameplay with modern visuals, and a solid story with equal doses of character and plot development, as well as humor. Tales of the Abyss expanded on the unique and extremely fun gameplay style of Symphonia and provided a story that was less cheesy and cliche, and more involved. It also had some very good character development, and overall solved most of the problems that plagued its predecessor.

I consider American RPGs very different, so I'll include them separately. The best ones that I've played are definitely Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Both games are extremely open-ended and open up plenty of possibilities for the player, and have brilliant stories and gameplay to boot. Some of the best RPGs period, regardless of where they were developed.

If I had to pick one, I don't think I'd be able to. There are simply too many great RPGs in different styles that they all deserve mentions. But I personally feel the ones I mentioned above are examples of the great things RPGs are capable of.

I'm doing a playthrough of all the games set in Ivalice right now, and right now I'm on Vagrant Story. I haven't played it for a good 8 years or so now, but it is no less enjoyable than it was back then. Great game, but a little too short.
