Any of those non-turn based. I have never completed one because I get bored of turn based. But for me Secret of Mana on super nintendo if you count that.

#10 Posted by O_OdazX_X (658 posts) -
I couldn't make a top 10 but i think Tales of Symphonia would be in there, with FFVI, IX and X and does Persona 3 count? cos I really like that game.
#11 Posted by jasonharris48 (21441 posts) -
I should of made this clear my bad lol. You may include SRPG"S and Action_RPGS as long as they are considered JPGS. For examples A-RPGs Rouge Galaxy ( If you have bad choice in JRPG's) SRPG's like Fianal Fantasy Tatics,Disgaea.

Any list of this type fails without Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy IV in the top three spots.

And FF8 doesn't deserve to shake the sand out of Kefka's boots, let alone be in the Top 10 JRPGs of all time.

Final Fantasy VII is too overrated for me; its the equivilant of Halo to JRPGS, Final Fantasy X and Final FantasyVI in my opinion are much better, and Chrono Trigger is sick aswell.

It has most popularity, most acclaim, and most sales in Final Fantasy franchise.

Thus, by most people it is considered best Final Fantasy game and to most it is widely considered best JRPG or even RPG of all time.

Heck, some might consider it best game ever made.

#21 Posted by Pope_3000 (751 posts) -
Lol so true, my bad, In my opinion my favorite would be IV for sure.
#22 Posted by Pope_3000 (751 posts) -
IV definately is better to any old school player of the series; VII afterwards just didnt feel as rewarding, dude play IV and you will like it more.
#23 Posted by TriangleHard (9097 posts) -

Lol so true, my bad, In my opinion my favorite would be IV for sure.Pope_3000

why IV?

I thought IV was quite poor with melodramatic storyline, ridiculous plot twist, and poor pacing.

Only thing IV really offered was revolutionary ATB system.

Dude are you serious IV that plot twist was sweet, ridiculous yes but still awesome.
#26 Posted by TriangleHard (9097 posts) -

Awesome? That is very poorly constructed plot that makes very little sense.

Only good plot twist FFIV had was Rydia. That was good, but rest of em? Man, if Kain betrayed me one more time, I would've broken the cartridge and find the data that had Kain stored and chock it until my fingers bleed.

Overall, plot sucked and if they just cool down with dumb plot twists, it might've been better. The plot barely had a build up and constantly throwing you off with odd and ridiculous plot twists that made very little sense.

I played 1 to 12 except 3.

Yes that includes FFXI.

I still consider Final Fantasy VII the best Final Fantasy and ultimately best JRPG I've ever played.

Final Fantasy IV and V suffered from very poor plots. What it provided was deep strategic battles (at least at that time)

Final Fantasy VI to me was major disappointment. It was far subpar compared to other Squaresoft titles that came out similar time period (Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, etc) Heck, it was subpar compared to Earthbound in terms of strategic battles and plot was never too concrete because it focused too much on individual character development over the main plot.

the "Golden Age" of Final Fantasy is actually VII, VIII, and IX since they sold the most. Other than that, only thing that really gets people talking about IV, V, and VI is just nostalgia factor.

Before VII, Final Fantasy series wasn't even best RPG series out there. It was Dragon Quest.

#36 Posted by jasonharris48 (21441 posts) -
I've played Final Fantasy 4 first I'd played them in the order as they came out to the States and beat everyone 7 story just 6 caught me the most. But FF 7 not my favorite JRPG that belongs to XenoGears.
#37 Posted by paranoiasurviva (13621 posts) -

So you're the kind of person who favors Dan Brown over John LeCarre?

Nice to know.

Not really. I don't like mystery novels that much.

I actually prefer Asian novels such as Art of War, Romance of the Three Kingdom, and stuff you wouldn't know about because they aren't written in English.

Final Fantasy VI had stories that was way too broken into little pieces that none of them recieved proper attention to grow. It was like Saga Frontier. Bare to the bone stories with very little meat on it.

Also the main plot wasn't that interesting. If it wasn't for Kefka, it would've been really poor plot that tried to make it seem political initially but failed miserably.

Which is why I enjoy Matsuno's works so much due to his highly detailed political situations and character development, which all of them are fairly well planned with right pacing.

#40 Posted by odin2019 (4677 posts) -

Let me see if I can come up with 10 for ya

1. Final Fantasy VI

2. Final Fantasy VII

3. Final Fantasy VIII

4. Final Fantasy X

5. Chrono Trigger

6. Final Fantasy Tactics

7. Super Mario Bros RPG (SNES)

8. Star Ocean The Second Story

9. Shining Force 1 or 2 (I can't remember which one I played back on Sega but it was probably 2)

10. I guess Xenogears since I really liked the story and the characters but it never really sucked me in like the other games I listed. Although I like some of the breath of fire games as well.

In my personal opinion there is only a couple of rpgs out there that I have yet to play that I would really like to play such as secret of mana, vagrant story, and I guess earthbound would a pretty interesting game. I think secret of mana would be better than shining force and xenogears though.

#41 Posted by jasonharris48 (21441 posts) -
Cool! everybody had some very interesting lists but why does everybody bash FF7 randomly was 06-07 the year to out of nowhere bash FF7 jut to do it?

-Dragon Warrior (NES... first console rpg as a child)

-Suikoden series

-Star Ocean

-Zelda (if we consider it to be an action rpg)

-Thousand Arms (again this one has a special place in my heart)

[QUOTE="Hoobinator"]FFIV has to be up there. It's one of the best and frankly overlooked FF games in the series.jasonharris48
Yes FFIV is a good game one of the best FF's I think FF IX is overlooked to.

I disagree 100%.

I considerFFIV to be one of the worst FF titles (not that it's bad). No other FF leads you by the hand like IV. No other FF shoe horns you into cookie cutter development system (that lacks any choices), that is actually just a back ground development system for almost allthe rest of the FF franchise.

Sorry but the jump in plot telling just isn't enough for me with that title (which was it's only star feature over the past iterations).

Final Fantasy Tactics does have one of the worst translation work I've ever seen.

But if you can look for it, it does have one of the best story you've ever seen.

I'm waiting for PSP version hoping the fixed the translation of the game.

#50 Posted by Bdking57 (1320 posts) -

good list.... but wait for all the casual and noob jrpg players to want more final fantasy. Persona 3 is easily one of the greatest JRPGs ever.... Atlus pretty much dominates in this category.
