10. Suikoden II (PS)
9. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PS2)
8. Final Fantasy X (PS2)
7. Xenogears (PS)
6. Persona 4 Golden (VITA)
5. Final Fantasy IX (PS)
4. Final Fantasy VI
3. Final Fantasy VII (PS)
2. Persona 5 (PS4)
1. Chrono Trigger (SNES)

Do you have the total number of points each one got? I'm super-bummed Tactics didn't make the cut.

Now we can all go around and pick one game from this Top 10 that we feel doesn't deserve to be here.

I'm tempted to go with P5, especially at #2, because RECENCY BIAS but since I didn't actually play that one (don't care for the tropeyness, pandering, and occult themes) I'm going to say Xenogears is least deserving. I know that sounds contentious, but that game has a lot of problems and tends to benefit more from Rose Tint than a lot of other games from the era. I mean, it's not even finished. FFXV is a more complete game than Xenogears.

Let me finish my critique with a compliment, though: this Top 10 proves what good taste this board has.

It's just impossible to choose, but I can safely mention these five.

Final Fantasy 6
Final Fantasy 7
Dragon Quest VIII
Breath of Fire 3
Shadow Hearts

It feels wrong to leave out games like Tales of Berseria and Disgaea 5, but I'd gladly add them to a top 10 list.

Don’t be too bummed. Since let’s be honest. If more people had played games like Panzer Dragoon Saga, Suikoden II, Mother 3 etc. The list would be quite different. Most people are simply unqualified to judge, due to limited exposure to the genre.

Then again, the topic is asking for favorites. So it’s not a big deal if people just put whatever on. Now if the TC was asking for a well researched and in-depth list of the best RPGs ever, I’d take issue with many of the games listed.

I don't consider Tactics a JRPG. But It would be in my top 5 strategy RPGs.

FFT:WotL
Path of Radiance
Tactics Ogre
Radiant Dawn
Sealed Sword

I could easily add another 10.

Chrono Trigger (which i'd also call the best game of all time period)
Persona 4
HDN 3 (i genuinely think the story progression is brilliant, which i know is not a popular opinion)
Final Fantasy 4 (certainly not the best, but the first jrpg I ever played, and I love it to death)
Digital Devil Saga pt.1
This is your miracle? A TREE? OOooh! look at me I turn sunlight into complex sugars. Big whoop!
