    *insert an angry fanboy comment about how a game I like is not on your list, because my opinion has more weight than yours* On a more serious note, I for example think Grandia is not a good game at all, and I don't understand why people like it, but I'm not going throw a hissy fit and say that it shouldn't be on a list like this, because guess what? This is not MY list, nor is it of the people posting the aforementioned comments.

    And yet here you are throwing a hissy fit.
  • risto-tapio - July 21, 2014 10:19 p.m.

    In a way, yes, because it does irritate me how it's always the same with any kind of list anywhere. People posting their own preferences and bashing the list because it does not include their favorites, completely failing to understand that other people might perceive things differently.
  • KoldFira - July 21, 2014 11:22 p.m.

    Often people create these lists to start that sort of debate however I agree with you, bashing the list doesn't add any value.

    I'll always have a soft spot for: Parasite Eve (best combat system of all time), and Jet Moto 2 (heaven/hell was amazing)

    Um, this list is butchered. A couple of games are second rate at best. Final Fantasy series was so overrated and it overshadowed every other RPG. No Xenogears or, easily top 5, both of them. Lost respect.
  • risto-tapio - July 20, 2014 7:25 p.m.

    No one gives a shit about your respect.

    Lmao. Mad and Butthurt much? FF Fanboy I presume. I'm sorry that there were better JRPG's than FF. You obviously thought enough about my post to reply, so thanks in that regard. Keep on raging bro.
  • aceoraiz - June 1, 2014 9:12 p.m.

    wow! you call this "Best of all Time" when Xenogears, Legend of Dragoon, BoF3, Dino Crisis 1&2, RE3, Parasite Eve, Tales of Destiny 1&2 and Einhander are not this list.... (-_-)
  • mitchel-jake-kanton - June 1, 2014 8:02 p.m.

    Legend of the Dragoon NEEDS to be on this list...
  • tedmanbro - June 1, 2014 2:59 p.m.

    Super happy to see Soul Reaver. I miss those games
  • itherion - April 27, 2014 9:11 a.m.

    Most of these games I've either played or owned :) I've played or owned most all of the rpgs in this list too :)
  • bigbaluchi - April 27, 2014 5:14 a.m.

    No Legend of Dragoon= Flawed List
  • NuAngel - March 28, 2014 7:20 a.m.

    I would have 2 additions: 1) Warhawk was the first PlayStation game I ever saw in person. FMV cut scenes (reminiscent of Wing Commander III & IV on the PC at the time), huge open areas to fly in fully 3D space. Those stock rocket tails and sound effects that would appear in several other early PlayStation exclusives (Twisted Metal)... instant classic. 2) Speaking of Wing Commander III - the PlayStation version actually got higher resolution video cut scenes than the PC version, and included several minutes of missing footage that help explain why Hobbes turned on his Confederation pilots. The PlayStation version of WC3 has become the definitive edition for many Wing Nuts out there.

    Why are you using screen shots from an emulator!? Let the chrns know what these games actually looked like.
  • NuAngel - March 28, 2014 7:20 a.m.

    I doubt they were using an emulator, per se, but I do suspect they were using a PS3 allowing for easier capture.
  • harley-mills - March 28, 2014 2:09 p.m.

    Naw, definitely an emulator. The PS3 doesn't upscale like that. All it really does is smooth out the image a bit. The PS3s that play ps1 games actually have the ps1 hardware in them (or PS2 hardware running a PS1 emulator, I can't remember). That's why they can't do much more than smooth out the image. Those images are crystal clear. Have you ever used a PS1 emulator?

    Am I the only person to have played and liked Nightmare Creatures?
  • Relayer71 - March 27, 2014 5:45 p.m.

    I love you guys for putting Lunar: SSC, FF IX and FF Tactics ahead of FF VII. But really, you could have left FF VIII off the list. Surprised Xenogears wasn't on the list instead.
  • evilscripts - March 16, 2014 10:01 p.m.

    No Dino Crisis, Parasite Eve, Legend of Dragoon and Breath of Fire? is this real life?!
