Borderlands 2 is my best FPS.

Resident Evil 4 or Dead Space 2 is my best horror game ever.

Persona 4

I've heard great things about the persona series. I don't play them because I am Christian, and the demonic theme is just too heavy for me. I won't play Grand Theft Auto either. 

Don´t worry about that. I´m Christian too and I really enjoy the Shin Megami Tensei series.

It´s a Japanese franchise,  after all. Christianity is a sort of folklore for Japanese people, because it´s not even close to be one of their countries´ main religions. Besides , there´s a lot of icons from other religions  in those games too.  Just remember they are simply fictional stories and you won´t find anything really offensive there. I´d say it´s easier to find  things that will feel more hilarious than offensive.....

Back to the topic.... I think Ocarina of Time would fit well the spot. Many games can be considered the best in technical terms.... but if we take influentional ones into consideration, we´d have lesser options.



I really wish someone would actually do a real "Best of all time" games list. Like, take out the nostalgia, take out the influence, and just have each game go toe to toe with each other. All the games you listed haven't aged well, and probably wouldn't even make a top 100 list.

Where is Starcraft Broodwar? =/...

Xenoblade Chronicles. Single handedly put jrpgs back on the map.

Hasn't Xenoblade been crushed by every recent FF, Persona, and Kingdom Hearts?

I know wev'e been inundated with FPS games, but the genre never left.

Seriously? I can't speak for Persona, cause never played them, but let's just take FF and KH for example.

1. SE had been saying for years that they can't make these "big games" anymore because it is impossible on current graphics. Too much work, assets, ect ot give us multiple cities and so big worlds. Xenoblade brought us back that ps2 and earlier era of huge epic RPG game. Blue Dragon and Lost Oddysey both kept the PS2 style RPG, but after those 2 the genre was very unrecognizable to fans of the genre. They became these CGI fested linear watered down games.

2. FF has been getting worse significantly since 10.

3. Kingdom hearts is probably the most convaluted mess of a story one can think of in recent times. The game strives on "nostalgia" Pure and simple. People in this thread bitch about Zelda or other old games being bad and only nostalgia bringing them up. That is all Kingdom Hearts has going for it. Not nostalgia as in a game from tehir childhood, but using Disney characters from their childhood. The novelty of all those iconic characters they treasure and hold dear are blinding them to the mess the story is.

Suikoden 2's sales as well as Persona's (except 5) also weren't great.

There's just something to be said when a game that has nowhere near the built in recognition and fanbase as FF, or the draw of an epic Disney jrpg like Kingdom Hearts gets praised both critically and commercially praised as one of the greatest jrpgs of all time. 

 

Sales wise sure, it doesn't rake in the #s of a FF, but it was also a limited release with 0 advertising from a company that produced only a handful of games. They're now regarded as one of the best development teams currently.
