By "LoZ" I assume you mean Legend of Zelda. You know why you don't consider that an RPG? It's because it isn't.

Hmm.  Tough choices.  I would probably go.
 
1. Fallout 2
2. Final Fantasy 6
3. Planescape Torment
4. Mass Effect
5. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
 
I have not gotten to play Dragon Age yet.  So that might make it up here and probably replace Mass Effect.

I wouldnt really consider any of those RPGs Fallout 3 is a action RPG, so ok, but the others.......
 
I just really hate it how the term RPG is thrown on every damn game nowadays,
Just because your in control of a character doesnt mean its a role playing game,
If it did then EVERY game is a RPG

@Coombs: paper mario is a turnbased rpg.

I'm guessing Borderlands dosent quite count? That might bump Morrowind down.

#20 Edited by Coombs (3449 posts) -

IMO its not a true RPG unless you control a PARTY,
If its just one person you control its NOT A FUCKING RPG
 
Sorry, just my opinion.
Probably because I grew up on the classic RPGs

#21 Posted by MasterMind (125 posts) -
@Manatassi: borderlands counts u lvl u have a party and u get stronger weapons and their is a story. not traditional but still an rpg

That's like asking me to pick my five favorite children. Not that I actually have kids or anything. But they're all special!
 
Though I'll be putting more into the college savings fund for Final Fantasy VI and Xenogears. *ahems*

Then what the hell are Oblivion, Morrowind, Fallout, Risen, Two Worlds....  etc etc
I can see a flaw in that reasoning lol

You control a party in all of those games, dude. In the Paper Mario games you do, in Knights of the Republic you do, in Fallout 3 you do during various points and could have a companion throughout most of the game if you choose. With Pokemon, I think the actual Pokemon you collect count as members of your party. All the games I listed are totally RPGs.

Why? We all know FF6 is gonna go to a party school, anyway. Put more money in Panzer Dragoon Saga's fund. That kid's going places.
#28 Edited by Coombs (3449 posts) -
@Manatassi: 
Action RPGs
 
Which is why in my original post I said it was the only one I considered an RPG
...Kinda

Sure FF6 might just squander that money, but it's naturally gifted so it may as well have a bit of fun before settling down with a good career.

persona 3. 
what about the tales series
or the star ocean series the parties have AI(not always good AI) u can give orders but they do what they want more or less
i think we sould give more RPGs more categories 
and puzzle quest is considered a puzzle RPG
lol sorry i like to play devils advocate

No, I think it's going to kill itself after realizing how bleak and depressing life is when The Joker goes to the Renaissance fair.
#33 Posted by Coombs (3449 posts) -
@TheGreatGuero: 
ok ok,
Like I said its just my opinion, 
MY definition of a TRUE RPG  
 
but like I said its probably because I gre up the the classic ones, before they stopped being fully turn based, abilities in a menu, 3-5 characters standing in a row style games.  Thats what I grew up on and thats what I think when I say RPG.
Not trying to get into a flame war, Just saying what i think.....
#34 Edited by Manatassi (791 posts) -

 @Coombs:
Dude Action RPG's are still RPG's its in the name...  You could exclude all JRPG's for being a sub-genre if you wanted. 
 
RPG = Role Playing Game 
 
Not GTHAPII which = Game That Has A Party In It. 
 
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a party system and a levelling system :) It meets your criteria. Unless you are making Turn Based Combat another criteria... 
 
Picking lists apart for not including "Pure Blooded" RPG's in could get silly lol.

#35 Posted by Siris (432 posts) -

#38 Posted by Coombs (3449 posts) -

Ok you win,
All games are RPGs because you are playing the role of the character you control,
Because thats your point right?
any game can be included because your playing a role?
 
Then my favorite RPG is TEKKEN 3  I loved playing the role of Eddy in the story mode......

#39 Posted by SadisticApathy (28 posts) -

1. Persona 4
2. Mother 2 (Earthbound)
3. Final Fantasy VI

It's always hard for me to narrow down set in stone favorites as my opinion always changes, but I can say that these 5 will generally always place high on my favorite RPGs list despite time passed and games played.

Well, I can say that Chrono Trigger, Paper Mario and Final Fantasy VIII are up there.  Can't think of two other ones, though Chrono Trigger became a favorite of mine until just recently.  Oh, and Persona 4.
