Been awhile since we did one of these threads but they are usually always interesting. So what ten RPGs are your all time favorites?

In no particular order:

Suikoden II

Final Fantasy VI / VII / & Xenogears
Shining Force
KotOR I & II
Dragon Force
Tales of Xillia 1 (and possibly 2, we're seeing right now. But 1 was SO fun, and getting so close to that perfect "RPG with fighting game encounters" I've always always wanted so badly, and the closest I'd ever came to it was Legend of Legaia~)

And finally, Divinity: Original Sin. Any fan of CRPGs should look into this recent beauty. It scratches that Balud'rs Gate / Planescape itch pretty good. Excellent tactical battle system. And even an extremely well done co-op play. It's so close to the perfect experience for a CRPG. Here's hoping they can afford to make a sequel which may come even closer to perfection

Thisclose to making my list. Can't beat the original FF. But still, great great game. Would it have made your list if you had stuck to 10?

Yes, I never intended to make a top 10 from the beginning; I knew I was going to cheat. But if I had to make one, Phantasy Star IV would be in it. Top 5 too. Perhaps top 3, thought that might be stretching it.

Mr. Canoe, you may have been cool, but being cool means you missed out on some brilliant games, the most important of which is Phantasy Star IV. Stay cool, though, bro. Stay cool.

I've been meaning to get back to Phantasy Star, I started playing the original thanks to Virtual Console for my Wii. II and IV are the ones I'm most excited to play but I figured I'd appreciate them more if I played them in order.

IV and II are standouts. In that order. The rest of the series doesn't quite hit the same high note.
