Awesome list. I've played about 7 of those games.

I was happy to see TWEWY there. Great game.

I just picked it up recently, hopefully I can find time to play it this year. Feb and March alone have enough games to last me most of the year

Wow out of the whole list, I've only played half of them :(.

I need to get back on my RPG groove (even though I technically am :P).

Chrono Trigger

"But the future refused to change."

Chrono Trigger's setup is compelling even now: A group of time travelers must not only head off a future disaster, but find out why it happened in the first place. When Chrono Trigger came out in 1995, it broke new ground with its non-linear story and multiple endings (more than a dozen in all), and those innovations have allowed it to hold up better than most RPGs of its era. Along with Final Fantasy VI, most people considerChrono Trigger the apex of the SNES RPG era. They're right.

I loved Persona 4 but it shouldn't be on that list. Lots of MegaTen games have a better story.



Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?

im glad to see the increasing popularity of this genre which a lot of people doomed a few years back. Im a big fan.

However i need to be honest with this matter... The truth is, imo the storytelling in most of these games is awful.

Itsa great game. I think you'll enjoy it.

...aaaand now i feel like playing it.



Whoa, wait a second. I am a goddamn hypocrite. I put Chrono Trigger on my list of best stories. Not just in the JRPG genre, but overall. Read here.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Persona 4: Golden

This nod specifically goes to the Vita port, which adds in two very interesting social links and a terrific epilogue. The story follows a handful of high school students in Japan as they chase a mysterious killer, confronting their worst fears along the way. Persona 4 is typically lauded for its memorable characters; and it features a well-constructed mystery with a surprising conclusion. The secret to its success though is the day-to-day  -- the part-time jobs, tests, and dates that slowly weave together a story of their own. When the year is finished and it's time to put Persona 4 Golden down, they're what you'll miss most.
