As you can imagine, reducing a selection of hundreds of great RPGs from more than 30 years of gaming down to a small list of 10 isn't easy. We battled, we scratched, we cried, but we feel pretty good about the final 10 and hope you enjoy our countdown as well! There's of course no way that we could ever feature everyone's favorite games (what a sad world it would be if we all agreed on those), but if you want to see more great RPGs, we've got a full Top 100 up on our website: http://www.ign.com/lists/top-100-rpgs
Final fantasy 4 (2 on snes)
Secret of mana
Final fantasy 6 (3 on snes)

Tales of symphonia
Dragon quest 7
Not in a spevific order
I love Chrono Trigger, but people who keep saying it has the best music ever hasn't actually listened to the ost. It's literally the same theme repeated over and over. Not theme as in thematic, I mean literal notes.
I’m 50/50 on this list. I would swap the top 2 spots but I have no problem with them as is. I think Pokémon Gold should be the representative of PKMN on this list. I think you have to have Paper Mario 2 on this list somewhere. And I think maybe there should be a Tactics game on this list. Tactics Ogre or FF Tactics.
Grandia II but no the first one!? C'mon...
Anyway, glad to see at least The Legend of Dragoon on the list, and obviously KH2, Persona series and some FF titles, even if FFVIII (my fav) is missing...
Also no Valkyrie Profile and Suikoden III which are cool. I don't understand what's special about FFVI to place it 2nd, I never played it but imo there are better FF.
10. Super Mario RPG
9. Dragon Warrior 3
8. Legend of Zelda

Plays witcher 3 and claim its the best rpg game among all the rpg games every made.... diablo,zelda heck even pokemon will laugh at that.. these games literally made witcher 3 n still witcher 3 makes u remember to eat n sleep ( just saying)
The only reason i like the list is because diablo is in the list... played most of it but nothing beats diablo 2 lod... cause it has an ending and u can reply it countless time... well most of the game in the list are epic(havent tried witcher)...deus ex/system shock/bioshock/ultima could been in the list with its immense rpg element.. element... (pokemon 1st gen literally carried an entire company to the future so it should be der)
They should rename it most influential rpgs of all time not best. There are tons of great rpgs in this current generation that obviously surpass the old ones like ff6. Speaking of the old ones, one of the best rpgs i've ever played, a true hidden gem : Valkyrie profile.
Just gonna say that if a Xenoblade game isn’t on this list it is just wrong EDIT: Pokemon Yellow is far from the best in the series and is definitely not the best way to experience it, Earthbound/Mother definitely should have made an appearance on this list, and I am genuinely surprised that a Zelda game isn’t top 3
