it always funny how gran turismo (sonys best selling franchise at the time) always ranks so low on these lists. race fans are less likely to frequent message boards and vote is the obvious reason. in all objectivity, the gt games are a top 3 ip for playstation anything lower than that is sacrilege!!

It's really funny seeing games like Legend of Legaia and Star Ocean: The Second Story so high on this list since I never see those appear on anyone's top lists on any other part of the web, but the number of people who are obsessed with JRPGs was extremely high on this site in the past. Things are a bit more balanced these days.

I wonder why high-rated games such as Persona 2 or Arc the Lad aren’t on this top 100 list

This list factors in votes from as far back as the early 2010's. A lot of people hadn't played the early Persona games yet, and Arc the Lad still isn't as known as stuff like Suikoden. Not many people vote on this particular list nowadays, so things aren't likely to change much going forward.

Its an unavoidable side effect of being composed of individual Top 10 lists. A game doesn't just need to be popular overall, it needs to be popular *enough* to break into people's Top 10 lists. Thus, the final result will consist of. . . well, firstly, the super mega popular titles that everyone loves. But after that, you will mainly get niche games that are loved by a rare few people, rather than games that are broadly not-quite-loved-at-Top-10-level. If you composed such a poll from Top 20 lists, you'd likely get a different overall result ( though you'd just move the threshold down to "stuff that regularly falls short of top 20" ).
