Got my Wii a year ago, but I'm in the same boat. EB Games should be selling Fire Emblem for $10-$15 used now days. I got my copy for $15, I was shocked, expected to pay more.

Waiting on Last Story and XenoBlade too. Only other suggestions I have are Arc Rise Fantasia, Tales of Symphonia 2, and well that's it.

If your never had a gamecube, there are some great RPG's on that system. Baten Kaitos and Baten Kaitos Origin is made by the same developer as XenoBlade, Paper Mario & The Thousand Year Door is excellent, and Tales of Symphonia 1 is much better then 2.

Also Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for Gamecube is a great game.

guys above mentioned most of them
I'd say if Little King's Story is considered as an RPG is one of the best on Wii

Tales of Symphonia 1st game is my best of all time, 2nd one is great as well

Honestly the last few years I havent looked at the Zelda series as a "RPG" series. Anyways, here's a RPG list for the Wii

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Echoes of Time (I do not see Crystal Bearers as a RPG)
Monster Hunter 3G
Rune Factory (All of them)
Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World
Xenoblade Chronicles
Muramasa: The Demon Blade
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
Phantom Brave We Meet Again
Arc Rise Fantasia


Nintendo dropped the ball on this generation, they could of made or worked more on bringing RPGs on to their console....

Good Wii RPGs I've played:
Arc Rise Fantasia
Muramasa: the Demon Blade
Fragile Dreams
Super Paper Mario

Bad Wii RPGs I've played:
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

 

EDIT: Zelda is not an RPG.


Yes, I'm very aware that Zelda is NOT an RPG.  Some think that, and I mentioned it to help ensure no one suggests it to me.  I do have Fragile Dreams, and Muramasa is on my Amazon Wish list.  Arc Rise Fantasia, I'll look into it.

Tales of Vesperia is one of the better RPGs on the Wii, its definitely something you may want to invest on actually. Plus Monster Hunter Tri, one of the best games on the Wii itself.

DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT get Arc Rise Fantasia, the english voice acting in the game alone is enough to stop someone from purchasing the game. Here's an example:

Unless you can find an Undubbed version, which I don't know even exists, plus the game is extremely mediocre at best. I normally don't care too much about voice acting and stuff, but this one takes the cake of the worst VA I have heard EVER.

Wait until Xenoblade (unless you are in the EU like me ;) ), the last story and pandora's box (dont know if the last one is an RPG though).

In addition to the games already mentioned you should check out Virtual Console for gems like Ogre Battle, Secret of Mana and Super Mario RPG among others.


I almost just came after reading those words.
