I will only stop drinking when I fall in love... Or fall dead.

Of course I did Baha. The game is good but I prefer the other rpgs I listed over it. I'm betting it wasn't your first rpg so you can put it first all you want. I am going to change one thing I said. I'll actually put FFIV DS above FFVIII.

If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.

My top choices are:

Ultima IV (this game got right what ME tried to do all along, and decades before)
Planescape: Torment
Baldur's Gate II + Expansions
Chrono Trigger
Xenosaga Episode III
FFVII

Sony bought Konami and will release a DDR game for the Nintendo DS. In this game, you set your DS on the floor and stomp on it till it no longer functions.

Dragon Quest V

And probably more that escape me at the moment.

Hey, me either, I'm long past the point of being interested in debating this kind of thing. Anytime I take issue with a post or a poster is just to get a clarification on what they're saying, maybe try to get them to see a slightly different point of view. Thanks for keeping it civil, and I definitely understand where you're coming from. Cheers.

You're welcome. And I just wish RPG's were more like they were back then when I first played them. Thats pretty much it. To me, they're not which is why I stay away from them. LOL.

There is a lot of good rpgs out there as many people have listed but my favorite ever is probably Breath of Fire IV on the old Playstation. Lunar Silver Star Story an easy second.

-edit-
Oh are we only suppose to list Wii rpgs? Oopsie! There are no good ones on the Wii.

What do you dislike about the series?

Well, let's face it, 2 was a joke. If I wanted to play those games, I'll just stick to Champions.
How is it a joke, you're not really answering my question. And Champions? Are you sure you're not talking about Champions of Norrath: Realms of EverQuest?


Dude, Baldur's Gate 2 was the biggest letdown of the series. It doesn't take rocket science to figure that out. Was it the overpowering of your enemies confusing you, or the fact that the level design completely lost it's flair that you're having the most trouble coping with? Question answered in full.

I am talking about Champions. And don't sit there and tell me it was made by the same makers of Baldur's Gate. Everyone knows that they are the same kind of game. They were just ten times better. And more challenging.

Anything else?
