IYO?

I'd say Tales, it is simply awful in every way.

Why in God's name is Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, and Paper Mario up there? If anything, those are some of the best RPG's this generation (Paper Mario for the N64, anyways).

What's a bad RPG series? Final Fantasy. That's right, I said it. Sue me.

most of these listed are just one game right now. expect for fable and paper mario there are just plans for more games, they aren't franchises. shenmu was supposed to be 4 games, i'm still waiting for the last two. lets not assume that just because devs have plans to make for games that they will actually come out. but to answer the original question i would say mass effect. its just more the same that bioware does. it just seems to me that bioware puts out about the same game with just a little more for each game. i liked KOTOR but KOTOR 2 was more of the same, Jade Empire was more of the same in a different location and time, and i feel the same about Mass Effect, IMO

Fable, since he fools everyone with his british accent makes him sound smart, describing this brilliant game that will revolutionize how we think of games. Then we find out that his game is a flop. *points at Fable*

where did it say bad horrible crap rpg series, it merely said worst.

if 99 games got a 100 score, and the last game got a 99, it would still be the worst game.

reviews have no impact, fable was a decent game, but a crappy rpg

ive beaten fable and lost chapters. they were nothing special. just a 8 hour game with the easiest last boss i think ive ever faced. and was it possible to get a game over? you get so much of those ressurection things....also maybe your a 360 fanboy that hasnt seen FF12 in his life.

This is not a shooter, of course if you played it in 8 hours, you would see 1% of what the game offers

Nice try, but i have finished it 5 times and playing it again, and i find new stuff to do EACH TIME

The game is endless and above anything on the market, simple as that

Now, if you choose to ignore 99% of the game, do the main quest and get it over with, that is YOUR problem, not the game's

I am 17 hours in now, and have just done half of the original game, not touched the LC expansion areas yet, it is easilyl 25+ hours, in LC version

Keywords highlighted. Your opinion isn't fact, sorry to say. You may think Fable and Fable 2 are godly games, but there are others who think exactly the opposite. Accepting this is the only way people will take your word seriously around here.

lol, how do you keep finding new stuff each time? did you choose not to get something to attemp to make it last? and this game is the opposite of endless. maybe the game would be better if peter managed to put half the crap he said was gonna be in the game into it. if any game is endless i would say it goes to oblivion or any game like that...and i think you have a problem if youve already played it five times, lay off the juice.

Again, you simply have no idea what you talk about, just stop, there is NO RPG out there, that has even 1/10 of things you can do in Fable, if you want a list let me know, then you, that have not played it, will know as well

It did not get 53 AAA reviews for nothing you know

All RPGs went to drop a duece at Fable that's why it has x10 the crap. 53 reviwers gave it AAA because they found it a nice place to take a dump too

I also like Counter-Strike but hate Half-Life, is there something wrong with that?

It's an opinion, my friend. I think LO is very different from FF. Those "some people" who think it's similar to FF have their own opinions to go by while I have my own.

And, again I say, I think LO is a great game while FF has been milked to death. That's not to say that I haven't enjoyed some Final Fantasy games, but Square Enix should really try something new once in a while.

Here's hoping for Kingdom Hearts 3! :D

FF has been milked to death? Dude Lost Odyssey IS final fantasy, with a name change. It just so happens you like LO. It's like some people enjoy FFVIII but hate IX. Or enjoy XII but dislike X. you can't say FF is a bad franchise given it's LONG track record
