Hell no. Dark and demon souls shouldn't be on the list. Those games are as minimalistic as possible for an rpg. This list already lost all credibility for those 2 games being on the list. There were a bunch of other bad nominations. What about red dead redemption, skyrim, and the original witcher? BS list.


Skyrim? God that was mediocre. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but god dang was it dumbed down! Go with Morrowind for that.
Red Dead? OH MY GOD DONT MAKE ME LAUGH.
That's not a RPG. It's amazing, but not a RPG. You'd be much better off saying Far Cry 3 is.


Morrowind? God that was mediocre. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but god dang was it dumbed down from dagger fall! Go with Dagger Fall for a deep game that didn't sell out to the casual gamers.

lol Skyrim, most overrated game ever, I'm glad it's way down there in the 26, far below Demon's/Dark Souls,

I don't agree at all. Its missing way too many good RPGs, and has too much Final Fantasy.

The thing that makes skyrim so great is the modding community. You can only wish other rpgs had the same level of moddable possibilities.
Dark souls and demon souls is trash and only fans think that minamalism in a game like the soul games = good. Minamalism in a game will always be a bad game no exceptions.
Red dead redemption is an rpg. You take up the role of a cowboy named john Marshall.

Bethesda still can't figure out how to make their character swing the swords properly, let alone a combat mechanic as awesome as Dark Souls's. good combat mechanic is essential for any action RPG. Skyrim is just a medieval Sims, game if you want to do domestic stuff in a medieval environment. But for action RPG in dark fantasy setting, Dark/Demon's Souls are the standard

I see a distinct lack of Tales of, Dragon Warrior and Star Ocean. Some love for Legend of Dragoon would be nice too. It was a very good RPG for its time.

I'm glad to see Paper Mario on the list. I don't know about "best RPG" but the original is a really good game.

I'd also remove FF IX.

Mass Effect 1 is the worst in the series (don't gimme that "the others aren't even RPGs" nonsense, they have way better characters, scenarios, and choices than the first game did).

Paper Mario is garbage compared to Super Mario RPG.

FFXII has no place on there, nor does Persona 4, nor does Pokemon.

Xenogears should probably be there somewhere. And one of the Fallout games (the original perhaps?). Dragon Age: Origins should have some mention also.

I agree that Dark Souls should be there, but I would rather see Demon's Souls off the list to make room for something more deserving.
