    Damn you Weigraf! You didn't put Crono Trigger on the list!

    On second thought if it was it would get 100% anyway so it would be a no contest...cause everyone knows CT is the greatest video game of all time!

    Hey Weigraf- fun fact: posts don't count in the polling forum.

    That being said, the greatest RPG is Fallout... 1.

    The Greatest RPG... is Final Fantasy 984. I'm disappointed in the lack of an option for it.

    Edit: Spoke too soon :D

    Valkyria Chronicles.

    As it is not in the poll, my vote goes to the great FFCMLXXXIV. It was great - there was even a crossover character: Megaman!

    Let us join in the wastes, mashing Radscorpions with our Super Sledge till we expire!



    FO2 is a better game, but HtH characters in FO are so enjoyable.
    Also, my last Iron Man Fallout playthrough ended en route to the Mutant base, by a critical snipe causing 266 damage and reducing [character] to charred remains. The wasteland claims your bones.

    I haven't played some of the games listed here, but of the ones I have, I liked FFIV the best.

    Well... let's see. CM means 900. L means 50. X means 10. IV means 4. I'm pretty sure you can figure it out.

    The greatest RPG is likely the one not listed here...
    (Though you likely couldn't make a poll big enough for it, IMO.)

    Anyhow, this just limits my vote for the awesome Final Fantasy CMLXXXIV. Pretty hard to beat that, ya know?

    If Chrono Trigger, Lunar, or Breath of Fire was on there, I'd vote.

    I'm rather surprised Kingdom hearts isn't a choice myself. Also, I'm not sure if you could count any of the Breath of Fire games among the "greatest RPGs ever." Unless it's a really long list.

    Being Disney doesn't disqualify it from being an RPG, given the other side of production was Square. Also, its music is really well done - and with music being an integral part of games... And being able to make a really good overall story combined with several smaller ones based on a wide variety of the best Disney movies. I - and a number of others I know - enjoyed these enough for it to be on such a list, even if you didn't.

    He wasn't saying that it being Disney disqualified it from being an RPG. He listed three different points that were unconnected.

    Ah, I understood it as a clarifying statement. A list makes much more sense.

    I'm curious, exactly what disqualifies it from being an RPG in your mind, hades? I'm not entirely clear on that, since it fits a pretty common definition of RPG - where you play a character to watch how their story and their own character grows over time.

    I personally think KH is an RPG, but your definition doesn't make an RPG. There are plenty of non-RPG games in which you follow a character and watch how their story and their character grows over time (No More Heroes comes to mind). There are also plenty of RPGs, such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, which have little to no characterization whatsoever.

    KH isn't an RPG to me, the same way rap isn't music to a lot of people. It obviously is, but it's such retarded cheese that many people choose not to consider it legit music.

    Beyond the Beyond? Hylide? This list should have a "other" option.

    I have played none of these games, but you know I've heard great reviews of FFCMLXXXIV.

    I haven't played too many games, much less rpgs, at all. If Okami counts as an rpg, that's the one that would get my vote.

    Were's FF9? And Shining Force over Crono Trigger? You coudn't even save that game on Genesis.....

    Either way one of my all time favorite FF's is FF9 and I know how underappreciated it is but if your gonna list one FF (7 of course...) you might as well list them all.
    Such as FF6, why 4 over 6?

    Castlevania: SotN, or FFVI if it needs to be more RPGish.

    What is the difference between Shadowrun on the snes and Shadowrun on the Genesis?

    EDIT:
    Never mind.
