Default What are the best RPGs?

I used to be fairly familiar with some of the older ones but haven't really kept up.

I recently played Persona 4 which was pretty good and am tempted to take a look again at what else might be out there.

The ones I would list as good from way back are

Final Fantasy IV (Final Fantasy II in the US)
Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III in the US)
Zelda: A Link to the Past
The Secret of Mana
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Uncharted Waters
The Ur-Quan Masters (Star Control II)

A tier below I would say are

Chrono Trigger
Dragon Age: Origins
Final Fantasy IX
Baldur's Gate
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2
The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

1. Mass Effect 2
2. Skyrim
3. Mass Effect
4. Oblivion
5. Fallout New Vegas
6. Dragon Age Origins
7. The Witcher (all of em)
8. Mass Effect 3
9. Morrowind
10. rest of the Fallouts

I grew up in the 90s with nes / snes... but nah m8 never could get into those FF / Chrono Trigger games, thought it was boring, chrono trigger had its moments but didnt keep me seated, i was more of a Mario Kart, NBA Jam and Contra with friends guy.... but i do agree they are better than the new FF games...

inindo : way of the ninja was a very good underappreciated snes turn-based rpg. it was very primitive in comparison to what we have now, but if you're a hardcore you'd prob enjoy it.

surprisingly mario rpg was also very good for what it was.

i'm currently playing divinity 2 and it's really something else. the combat is on point, but there's too much emphasis on the story. lots if reading, choices, etc. but when u get to the battles they're really rewarding on hard difficulty.

i couldn't get into skyrim. too mainstream/mass appeal and the combat left a lot to be desired.

the dark souls series is my all-time fav. it's more of an action rpg, but the combat is super on point. it really challenges u. a lot of the boss fights are unreal. the second iteration in the series was a litte disappointing, but the first and third are incredible.

I've played countless rpgs and the best is The Witcher 3, without a doubt. In fact, it might be the greatest game ever made (rdr2 is right there).
