IGN recently did a "Top 100 RPGs of All Time". If you don't want to go to the IGN website I'll list all the games here.

100 - 50


49 - 1



GameInformer also did a "Top 100 RPGs of All Time" in their June 2017 issue. You'll have to buy the magazine to see the list with all the pretty pictures and reasoning for their choices. Fun fact, the picture they used for Paper Mario wasn't a screenshot from Paper Mario. If you don't want to purchase the magazine to see the list, then here's the full list below.

100 - 50


49 - 1

I know there's people that don't take IGN/GamerInformer's opinion seriously (myself included), but a lot of people do. I was wondering what RPG buffs (or anyone really) think about this list. Personally I've only played a few RPGs so I can't really tell if this list is any good or not. What do you guys think?

FF6 is number 2 and Higher than FF7?

Well then, that is great taste, I have to admit.

The RPGs are not restricted to the turn battles like Golden Sun, but include things like Farming Simulator Stardew Valley.

A great deal of the MMOs on there are more for the dubious amount of "pioneering" they have contributed.

In essence, EVE Online is more of notoriety than anything else, because the community is allowed to be assholes, with scams supposedly taking years that basically amount to befriending someone through daily efforts before plundering their stuff. I have to ask "Why would I play a game where people are so dedicated to being asshats?" I am surprised no one actually murdered someone else in real life in all honestly. This banality of being an online dick makes me wish someone would murder such a person just to prove a point. It seems harsh, but that is how I feel.

FF12 placed higher then FF9 what sort of bullshit is this? Also Suikoden II made the list but not Suikoden IV ? Also both of the Tales entries deserves to be higher.

This was my knee-jerk reaction too. Outside of that, I think MMOs should not have been included on this list (just me being picky - as I don't necessarily see a strong correlation between RPG and "MMORPG" nowadays).

But hey, Chrono Trigger being #1? I'm okay with this.

I suppose but at least Everquest help define what a proper MMORPG is , the rest of the MMORPG entries on the last kinda ride it's coattails.

I'm actually okay with the list, in the most part. Totally agree that Chrono Trigger and FFVI are the 2 best ones ever and I'm surprised that they chose Pokémon Yellow as the best Pokémon game, people tend to go with the original Red and Green.
Also, in regards of ME, am I the only one that feels that ME1 should be higher than ME2? I agree that ME2 is way better than ME1 as a game, but in the RPG department alone, I feel that ME2 is not as good as ME1, I really think that the RPG aspects of ME1 are better than the ones in ME2.

As a big rpg enthusiast I'm kind of turned off that pokemon made it high into the list twice since I had a bad first impression with 1 of the original games as a kid and never went back since they were churning them out faster than CoD. But as an adult I'm sure they've improved leaps & bounds since then (Though I very much doubt they legitimately surpass so many of the other rpgs on this list). But otherwise a good list imo, glad to see the crpgs got some love.

I hate top # lists. Its not too bad when its down to 10, but larger lists, especially 100 is in general a load of crap in my opinion. The problem is that the list is so large it inevitably will include titles that are not worthy of a mention, or stray so far in quality from other titles mentioned. Keep it short and simple.

Maybe because it's not an RPG.
