Easy to say the 3D GTA series, but I don't know.

Final Fantasy is RPG, right? I'd say Final Fantasy (VIII) and I think many people will agree (since this topic has been done a lot of times before).

I liked "Breath of Fire 4" a lot more really, the sprites were cooler and more like anime, the moves were cool and Ryu made an awesome noise when he transformed into a dragon :P.

Never tried Breath of Fire 3, but the original two.. ugh, don't let Capcom make another RPG ever again!

Cool game, I like that it's big but not online so you can't turn it into your life. But it's virtually impossible to beat the game so you can't really get a great feeling of acomplishment.

My favorite final fantasy is VII, but the best RPG, in my opinion, is Earthbound.

Final fantasy VII = High ranking on my top ten.
Earthbound = OMG good fucking game!!! A little tedious in the end though.

What about Chrono trigger?

well, breath of fire one was made WAY back in the days of the nes, so give it a break.

breath of fire two was a slight step up, and i personally enjoyed it...

BUT THREE is just the fucking shiznit, seriosuly... best rpg ive played, and I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON A COPY OF IT !!!!!

i had to rent it from chartbusters all along... but now i FINALLY have my own

breath of fire 1 - ....good enough for its time
breath of fire 2 - pretty decent, not on par with the standards of its time though
breath of fire 3 - need i plug it any more ?
breath of fire 4 - a close third or fourth in my top ten
breath of fire : dragon quarter - SHIT...

Baldur's Gate II.

The Japanese make some great games but compared to the best North America has to offer, they're little more than interactive movies. Very good interactive movies, but still. :)

Oh my! FFVII. That just came out of nowhere. Lol. Anyway, my favorite rpg of all time is Nethack, but I doubt anyone's played it before.

If you mean the main storyline it's just a matter of getting a reasonably high level. Everything is easy once you get Sunder.

I always thought FFIX was one of the best games (alongside VII and VI) to come out of the FF series. It was just a great game with a lot of things to do, great characters, great plot, and a ton of minigames. I still have a FFIX save state with over 400 hours on it (Due mostly to the chocobos).

I would have to say either Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy IX. Those two are very good games. VII, because it's the first FF I ever played. The storyline, music and the materia system was good. Emerald and Ruby were good challenges. Also, the chocobo races were fun as well.

Also, I think IX is good, because it is a traditional RPG and the storyline, mini games and music are very good. The characters look strange, but it made the game interesting.

You don't. GTA isn't an rpg.

I particularly liked Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, the Quest for Glory series (which was kinda rpg, but not quite), and I particularly enjoyed Tales of Symphonia a good deal.

Top 7:

1) Secret of Mana (SNES) - This is easily my favorite RPG, since it's real time combat and supports 3-person multiplayer, in addition to being a great game. And whatever you do, do not confuse it with that POS Legend of Mana for the PS.

2) World of Warcraft (PC) - ranked so high because it's currently devouring my soul. Should the gods of coincidence smile upon you, say hi ( or give money xD ) to Shadowtwist on the Eldar'Thalas server sometime.

3) Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines (PC) - First game to make use of the HL2 engine following it's release. It's really rough around the edges, but if you're into the WoD roleplaying system, or think you would want to roam around as a vampire, you need not look further than this one.

4) Morrowind III (PC) - the openendedness is amazing, it doesn't get much more freeform. Probably the most replay value you'll get out of any regular single-player experience.

5) FFVII (PS) - the first one I played, the first one I beat. Still stands above the rest at the peak of the FF series, IMO

6) Chrono Trigger (SNES) - another square masterpiece. Genious battle system, and a great story to boot

7) Neverwinter Nights (PC) - simply because of the fact that the replay value of this game will never decrease, because of the easy to use toolset and willing fanbase

Final Fantasy 8 was the best. In my oppinion best RPG ever.

ff-X was good. X-2 had decent aspects. XII looks great.

Chrono Trigger was also good.

Many many many people can easily say worst FF ever for that one.

The battle system was horrible and so far removed from the traditional FF, it was terrible.

You could literally blow through the whole game in a matter of hours and never bother seriously leveling anything. Very anti RPG.

But hey, you liked it. Guess someone had to.

I don't know... FFVII was the shit for it's time so that has to be worth something. Although I personally enjoy the story behind FFX much more, although FFX-2 was so terrible I swore to never play another FF game again.

Chrono Trigger was awsome, and so was Earthbound. But I feel like I'm forgetting one from my NES days. All I can think of is Zelda and that's not right... Dragon something. Um... hold on, it's comming...

DRAGON WARRIOR. Those games kicked ass. I think 3 was the best but I can't really remember it's been so long.
