U.S.A. - The only country known to have dropped nuclear devices on civilians

The list is okay, but I'm not too happy about the lack of Wild Arms, Breath of Fire, Lunar: SSS, Chrono Cross, Radiant Historia, Skies of Arcadia, Shadow Hearts: Covenant and Xenosaga III (and gems like Eiyuu Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki series) which went criminally unnoticed in the west).

We live in a world where Time and Eternity gets a release outside of Japan and Final Fantasy Type-0 doesn't.

I agree. Getting it down to 25 is pretty tough if you think about how many decades these types of games have been around

Im sorry but even though I don't fully agree with that list, look at most of the games thn look at nier.....ya it had its charm but it gets utterly curb stomped gameplay wise by just about everything on that list.

No way in hell should Nier be on a greatest overall rpg list of any kind, maybe a specific award like music or something but overall its lacking so so so so so so so so so so much when put up against actual classic rpg(of any kind)

Sweet. I only need 4 of those off that list. Too bad Suikoden is stupid expensive though.

It's just their opinion so it really doesn't matter if Nier is one of the greatest jrpgs to them then just let it be. I personally didn't really like it either but when saw it on the list I was like meh whatever.

Well if I were to share my opinion on the list it take to long, almost like I writing my own essay lol. I like to write my thoughts in great detail a lot even when I'm not trying to because I don't want anyone saying they don't understand my point and I want to get my full thoughts out. So if it's too much work I usually don't say anything lol.
