Game Polls: Your Top 10 Favorite JRPG Series

Given theres a lot and they tend to require a good deal of dedication, I figured this would be a good poll to build off each other’s experiences. If I missed something good, write it in. The purpose is to find stuff to play next. (Commentary and rambling is good too) Games are ordered by earliest release according to this list. I moved some things around to be able to be easier to find. There’s a poll limit of 20 that’s why it’s split up. Only vote 10 times plz, also no voting for stuff you haven’t played :stuck_out_tongue:

My 5 votes are Final Fantasy, Chrono, Dragon Quest, Phantasy Star, Langrisser the only things i’ve actually played. Even though I know plenty is probably better (Suikoden, Vagrant Story, Xeno,) I will just mention them here :slight_smile:

Note: Vagrant Story not even on that list I consulted! Though, I think it should be, so it’s my write in. Cladun X2 and lately Siralim 2 are great fun as well and also worth a mention.

No Earthbound or Kingdom Hearts? POLL FAIL. Seriously where are they? What about Dark Souls? Super Mario RPG? Mario & Luigi? Paper Mario? Man, you are missing some really big names.

@stefyg i dont profess to be expert. I just wanted to find stuff to add to wishlist i dont know of… I thought seeing stuff getting votes might be a decent way to pick up a new series… so if anyone is inclined they can insert a poll as a comment of theirr own using the gear icon and add what you want just like i did… That table was massive and i split it up into 3 polls.polls cant be bigger than 20 choices… no reason we can’t have a thread of 10+ polls but i don’t see why i need to be the one to go make them all. XD.I cut lots of ARPG stuff out. (i tried to cut it all out, woudl be best in it’s own poll) I figure most people know what zelda and Dark Souls, mario are anyway, those games are big enough to get their own threads. (that’s why i specifically didnt include zelda) Kinda wanted a poll that would have oddball stuff getting votes anyway.

Only Zelda II Adventure of Link is an RPG. I can completeley understand not adding EVERY single one, but honestly, I am just baffled how Full Metal Alchemist and Sword Art Online made in on the list before The Souls Series. I didn’t even know that FMA had video games, let alone an RPG. I am sorry if I sounded like a jerk, appreciate you replying to me.
