So, from reading another thread, i got to thinking, “Great RPGs are hard to find now a days.” It seems that Story and content are always sacrificed for graphics or flashy dumb shit. I feel that video game makers need to go back to their roots, because quite frankly, the greatest RPGs to this day that ive ever played are for our old school systems. So, i propose we take some polls amongst the gamer crowd out there, to see if my views are held by others. If youd like to participate, list your top 3 favorite RPGS and why, and feel free to list a game ive already listed:
Final fantasy 3/6 (depending on the US vs japan version)-Fantastic story. Definitely the most badass game ive ever played. So much extra shit to do, so many different characters to play, all with different capabilities. With this game, you could play this game over and over and always find new things.
Chrono Trigger- Fantastic story line, great array of players, tons of freedom. Very close to my #1. One of the great things about CT was that you could see many different endings, 14 i believe, depending on how and when you beat the game.
Final Fantasy 7- Also a very close call. Story lines dont get much better than this. Tons of fun side shit to do, and the end quests added a good 20hrs to this game. I say if you never got the golden chocobo, knights of the round, and beaten the 3 ultimate weapons, you never truly beat the game.
