25 Timeless RPGs You Need to Play Before You Die
Created by Fox Van Allen on
Final Fantasy VI
From historically important games to those with great stories to those that are just brilliantly unique, these are the RPG games that you cannot afford not to play.
Initially released as Final Fantasy III in the U.S., this SNES Squaresoft classic tells the story of General Celes Chere and her band of Returner allies as they fight an evil empire and, eventually, face a world-shattering apocalypse started by a mentally unbalanced clown.
This game was one of the first to put such a heavy focus on character development. Every playable character get a compelling backstory. And each gets an own optional, story-driven dungeon to complete in the World of Ruin.
