What are top 5 CONSOLE RPG's?? - Page 7

post #61 of 108
My faves:

1. Final Fantasy X (good graphics, interesting gameplay, good story, although my disc is scratched so I've never seen the entire end - it freezes on the bubble of Tidus' head)
2. Kingdom Hearts 2 (still haven't completely beaten it or 1, but have unlocked secret ending)
3. Final Fantasy IX (took me forever to beat, but I love the storyline and the music)
4. Chrono Cross (took my sister four years to beat, and when she did it her specs were insane compared to what most people have - I beat it in a few months, but the final seven or eight bosses are insane)
5. Fable: The Lost Chronicles (too short, but the premise is one of the best, plus the graphics are amazing at times)

thank you not many ppl seem to like 9 quite so much, which is probably my 3rd fave, coming after 6 and 11. everyone's fave is usually ff7 which was good for awhile... but after they started milking it too much, its appeal kinda died :/ ... should have just stopped after making advent children

ES4: Oblivion (for PC because you can get mods and stuff)
There was an RPG for the SNES, it looked like Legend of Zelda but it was in the future. I haven't played it in forever, but I'll try to figure out what it was called...

EDIT: its called Chrono Trigger

it roxxors my soxxors.

Over six pages of responses, and not one person listed FF 12? Sad, people. It is by far the best FF game of them all, regardless of what all you folks with the FF7 fetish want to believe.

Some of you guys need a refresher in what an RPG is...Castlevania? Conker?!?!? Come on guys, you know darn well those aren't RPGs.

It is impossible to flame you enough for this vulgar statement. X-2 was a crime against humanity.

4. Baldur's Gate : Dark Alliance 2 (crap now, but good when it was made)
I don't even consider this an RPG. It is, at best, an "action" RPG. I enjoyed the game (the first one was better though), but it's simply not the same genre as FF and KOTOR (or the "real" Baldur's Gate games on the PC, for that matter).

5. FF : Dirge of Cerberus. (Flame away, Vincent is the BEST. Final Fantasy storylines as a FPS? BEAUTIFUL IDEA.)
It is impossible to flame you enough for this vulgar statement. It is also not an RPG, as you obviously know since you called it an FPS.

Chrono Trigger bears about as much resemblance to "Zelda, but in the future" as Guitar Hero resembles DDR. No, CT resembled the FF games of the era more than anything else...and not really in the future, since it crossed multiple time eras.

Zelda is the reason people invented the term "action RPG". There are some RPG-ish elements to it, but it is definitely more of an action game than the traditional RPGs that mimic'ed p-n-p RPGs. Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance mentioned above falls in that same action RPG category.

The problem now though is that there is so much convergence...if I try to suggest that Oblivion is an action RPG, not a "real" RPG, people would complain loudly. But honestly, the fact that you can dodge an enemy using twitch skills instead of surviving a dice roll does tend to push it into that action category.

IMO guitar hero is DDR just with a guitar instead of a dance mat...

Action-adventure. It may have RPG elements but it also has puzzle elements, and it isn't considered a puzzle game.
